Pros: I put this in a machine using Gigabyte M61P-S3 with a 3.1 Ghz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core.
Boot up time is now 20 seconds. Still using Windows 7 pro.
Cons: There is no AHCI in the bios for this motherboard which I believe causes the following. . .
A pop-up message box is displayed after boot up saying that the Samsung Magician software is not
communicating with the SSD. I accepted the fact that this is happening but I contacted Samsung support to see if there was some way to stop the message. (meaning some regedit alteration). They said no.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend this product and would buy Samsung SSD again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acronis True Image 2016 - 1 PC
Pros: I just built a new pc with Win8.1 and upgraded to Win10.
I tried to clone the Win10 C drive with Acronis 13. Had several problems. I got the Acronis16 and the disk was copied in 10 minutes. I attempted to boot up to the new drive and Win10 display a problem and attempted reboot.
The reboot was successful. PC is up and running on the Clone C drive. I powered down, disconnected the clone drive, and rebooted with the original C drive.
Cons: Don't know why the 1st attempt at booting with the clone drive had problem. Obviously, I prefer that it boot up with no problems. I intend to keep and use the Acronis 2016.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Installed motherboard with no problems. Started with a Windows 8.1 64 bit. Never really tested the gigabyte pgms.
Updated bios using a flash drive (press DEL at bootup)
No problems here. OS ran great, 3.6ghz cpu helped.
CPU - AMD A6-5400k Trinity FM2 3.6 ghz
Used original heatsink
MEM - Hyper fury black 8gb 1866 240 pins
PS - APEVIA ICEBERG ATX-IB680W-BL 680W ATX12V
CD/DVD drive - asus
Cons: Upgraded to Windows 10 and had problems.
Gigabyte pgm would not work without giving me a pop-up about the drivers. Never thought I would do this but, I uninstalled all of the gigabyte pgms including the EasyTune6. Trying to overclock seem to corrupt the bios, so I reloaded. . .three times. I decided to stop with the overclock process.
I went to the gigabyte site and none of the pgm are specified to work with Win10.
When I selected by mother board and then selected the operating system, Win10, I got three pgms with drivers.
Other Thoughts: Tried to use Acronis 13 to clone the disk and could not under Win10. I keep having to alter the bios to fix the bootup sequence. Still trying.READ FULL REVIEW
