Cons: Cheaper price means slower performance. I bought this to replace an aging 90 GB OCZ Vertex 3 so I could fit my entire Steam library on it and not have to manually move files between spinning disk and SSD when I decided to play a game I hadn't played in awhile.
Anyhow, CrystalDiskMark before/after the drive swap showed the OCZ was clearly faster. However this is still "fast enough" and the higher capacity has certainly made it more convenient.
Other Thoughts: If I had it all to do again, I would have probably tried a Samsung 840 EVO instead.READ FULL REVIEW
4 Memory Slots
Cons: The BIOS is... bizarre. But it works well enough.
If I had it all to do again I'd look for a Q77 chipset motherboard. At this price point there are a few of them to be had and I think they're a better option.
Other Thoughts: I wanted a mobo on the cheap to throw together a PC from some spare parts into an actually somewhat respectable moderate gaming rig for my wife, this motherboard filled the need quite well.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Foxconn Q77M LGA 1155 Intel Q77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Q77 chipset at this price point
4 Memory Slots
Cons: None, for this price point; this mobo is a stellar choice in my opinion.
Other Thoughts: I paired this mobo with an i5-3470 and 16 GB of PC3-12800 memory and an old Radeon 4890 and it's running like a champ. PCIe-3.0 slot just waiting to accept a video upgrade when the time comes. I'm a happy camper.READ FULL REVIEW
