GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

1 out of 5 eggs Problems with SSD detection/maintaining contact with SSD 05/03/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE G1.Sniper Z87 LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Very good price vs. features match.

Cons: Unfortunately, even with F3 bios version installed this mobo is unable to maintain contact (detection) of SSD's. There will be an initial detection of the SSD, but within several bootups the mobo loses contact with the SSD. No matter which SATA connector is used and even changing cables out, this board constantly loses connection with SSD's. Considering that SSD's are normally used as your OS install drive - this basically makes this mobo unusable if you want to use an SSD for OS root drive purposes.
New Win 7 Pro w/SP1 install, I7-4770k, 4mb DDR3, SanDisk 120gb SSD "SDSSDH-120G0G25" @ SATA 3Gb/s, 2 other HDD's @ 6 Gb/s.

Other Thoughts: Would have been a nice simple upgrade from lga-1366 w/ I7-920 to z87/haswell.... but it did not work out that way. I have been a long time buyer/user of ASUS mobo's and decided to give this Gigabyte mobo a try due to a variety of positive "professional reviewer" reviews.... but as an experienced standard user/individual my experience with this board does not match that of the reviews. I am contemplating going through with the RMA process to attempt to switch over to the ASUS equivalent (only have 30 days to do so).

1 out of 5 eggs Do not buy, Non-compliant with MS compatibility standards 07/16/2013

This review is from: Black PC Computer Wireless Gaming Receiver For Microsoft XBOX 360 XBOX360

Pros: Low cost.

Cons: Incompatible with certified MS X360 controller. Unable to connect, even though same controller can connect to certified MS X360 wireless gaming receiver. Stay away from this product as it is very hit or miss whether it will work with your controller. Non-compliant with MS compatibility standards. @ $11, it wasn't even worth the effort to RMA.

1 out of 5 eggs Incompatible with MS controller 07/09/2013

This review is from: Black PC Computer Wireless Gaming Receiver For Microsoft XBOX 360 XBOX360

Pros: Showed up undamaged. Cheap price.

Cons: Not compatible with X360 wireless controller - absolutely would not "sync" with controller. Using current MS driver install/uninstall/etc methodology in attempts to get connection, still would not synchronize with controller. (Controller would sync with another MS wireless gaming receiver, so was not a receiver issue)

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. A $11, wasn't even worth the effort to RMA. My advice - pass this item by, its not worth the chance of seeing if it works for you.
