4 out of 5 eggs Good Deal, Small issues as noted 05/31/2015

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-AM1M-S2H AM1 2 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Low cost namebrand motherboard that worked on install. Only 4 of 5 stars because of minor issues as noted in cons.

Cons: Driver Disc was acting strange when trying to load drivers. I ended up placing this DVD into another computer, writing those files to hard drive, and then burning a different DVD-R with the data off the hard drive that came off the original disc to get the driver disc to work correctly in new build.
Time Delay at POST is very short, you have to be very quick to get into BIOS. Took me 3 tries but got in.
Tried to use HDMI at get go as display without OS installed and ran into some video problems. HDMI video didnt work correctly until after OS was installed with video driver. Good thing TV had a VGA port to use for initial build.

Other Thoughts: Default BIOS config is UEFI for Windows 8. I had to go into BIOS and switch all settings to Legacy for Windows 7 64-bit build. Boot order also had to be selected with Legacy boot order vs UEFI default.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Deal, Works Well 05/31/2015

This review is from: Veho VMS-004D 400x USB Microscope

Pros: No longer have to strain eyes with magnifying glass or microscope when looking at coins under magnification. I am able to set the focus on the microscope with it resting on desktop facing surface, and I made a coin mover by cutting a circle out of a cardboard book mark, so I can move the coin without having to get my fingers between the lens and the desktop.

Cons: You only want this connected when your going to use it as for it uses system CPU and memory resources when connected and its processing the video data. On my Athlon 64 x2 4450B 2.3Ghz CPU running windows 7, it has both cores at 60% utilization from the normal 5% idle.

Other Thoughts: I tested this with a Dual Core Intel Core 2 Duo E4300 1.8Ghz with 1GB RAM and Windows XP Home SP3 32-bit as well as an AMD Athlon 64 x2 4450B 2.3Ghz with 4GB RAM running Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Ran perfectly fine on these older systems, but be sure to install the driver software first.
