Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Fast, reliable, great migration software! 07/21/2014

This review is from: Crucial MX100 CT512MX100SSD1 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: Fast
Great value
Migration Software (Acronis True Image HD) included

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Great value, especially with the migration software included. WEI in Win 7 went from 5.9 with a 2TB spinning platter to 7.4 for this drive! Although you can find free open source migration software, The included Acronis is intuitive, fast, and painless. Crucial is a trusted brand when it comes to memory, and this SSD is no different! Highly recommended!

ECS NM70-I2(1.0) Intel Celeron 1037U 1.80GHz Intel NM70 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great built-in graphics
Speedy processor
Low power draw

Cons: Insufficient CPU Cooling on board
Lack of USB 3.0

Other Thoughts: This is an update to my previous glowing review of this board. I bought 2 of these boards, and 1 of 2 was DOA. Newegg handled the RMA, but it cost me over $12.00 in shipping and restocking costs for 1 lb. mini-itx board! That made the cost of one of these builds significantly higher. When I finally got the second motherboard replaced and ran Prime 95 on both to burn in, I found temperatures with the stock heatsink and fan to be 65-70 C at idle and between 95 and 105 C (Maximum for CPU) during Prime 95 testing. This is not acceptable. I have seen other reviews stating the same problem with this board. Most resolve it with a new northbridge cooler and some thermal paste, but this shouldn't be an additional expense you have to spend on a brand new system! So now in addition to the return fees, I have to dole out the cost for a new cooler and fan for each CPU and thermal paste, adding another $15+ to each build. If I don't do this, they will likely fry the CPU in a very short period of time. I really don't understand why ECS cannot properly protect the CPU on these motherboards from the factory! I mean they are supposed to put these together to run for at least the length of their 3 year warranty, right? IThey are either skimping on the paste, or it is the low-speed (like a toy) fan they have on top of the heat sink. By the time I add in these additional costs, I could have bought a more expensive motherboard that would not give me these problems. If you spend the money to buy paste and a new cooler, these boards will probably be ok. But why should you have to spend the money in the first place?

Pros: Good RAM, running at speed with no problems at all on a new ECS NM70-i2 1037u mini-itx board. No problems at all.

Cons: No cons, just good RAM at a good price!

Other Thoughts: Great RAM for general use and HTPC systems!
