This review is from: ORICO 2-Outlet Power Strip with Surge Protector, Built-in 5 Ft. Cord, 4 USB Intelligence Charging Ports (2*5V2.4A + 2*5V1A) for iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S6 / S6 Edge, Nexus and More (TPC-2A4U-BK)
Pros: Bought this to replace the many wall wort chargers that I use.
It works great for that.as well as for relocating 2 AC power outlets for the times I need to plug in an external drive for backups, or top off the charge on my notebook computers.
It sits on the back corner of my desk easy to reach,and fits in my notebook case for travel.
Cons: If there is a con I have not found it yet.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked flawlessly 6 months with the A10-5800K
Cons: ASUS lied, After 6 months of flawless performance with the A10-5800K. I checked the ASUS Support page for compatibility with the A10-7850K , and it said that it would be starting with Firmware version 1002 . So I bought an A10-7850K ,updated the firmware and NO ! It is NOT compatible. I updated all the way through the lastest firmware and threw every driver version that AMD Has ,and the HDMI never worked .Even the DVI port was flaky at best.
I reloaded windows 7 three times and nothing worked. Finally I put the A10-5800k back in ,Loaded Windows one more time and all is back to normal.
Other Thoughts: I gave this board a higher rating 6 months ago while using the A10-5800K,so if you are using a trinity based APU this is a great board
If a Kavari based APU is your goal DO NOT use this board.
I tested my A10-7850K in a Gigabyte F2A88XM-D3H that I bought here 07/05/15 and it was stable first try, without any firmware updates.
Pros: It was cheap ( Too Cheap )
Cons: The chip set drivers included causes BSD's about every 15 minutes.
Go get the latest from AMD BEFORE install.I installed Catalyst 14-4. And choose rhe custom install , and un-check the boxes for the 2 apps it will want to install. One is for games the other for streaming the games. They will drain your bandwidth dry.
Another thing,,I has NEVER properly recognized any USB 3.0 device, and may have even killed a USB thumb drive.
Other Thoughts: I was unemployed when I built this machine ,otherwise I would have never cheeped out and bought this MoBo. MSI ,Never Again. This board has never really been what you could call stable. Windows 7 has been reinstalled at least six times trying . Today was number 7 I think ?
I have so many problems with MSI it would take too long to list. This was the last straw. As builder I wish I could bill them for all the time I spent on this MoBo.
