Pros: ASRock makes GREAT boards. I've been buying them at work for almost two years now with no issues. VERY satisfied.
Cons: Just don't have an issue after 30 days. 1) ASRock has no phone support, you have to fill out a web form. Personally, I don't expect a response for days or weeks. 2) ASRock only offers a 1 year warranty to **authorized dealers**. Users are told to refer to their dealer's RMA policy. 3) My authorized dealer, Newegg, has only a 30 day RMA policy on motherboards.
So basically if you're a PC tinkerer like myself and buy all your parts from Newegg, you're only going to get a 30 day warranty on ASRock boards. Also, the hassle I have dealt with so far just trying to talk to someone about this one bad board is far greater then the cost of buying a new board. Unfortunately it probably won't be ASRock. Maybe ASRock needs to start putting pressure on Newegg to change it's 30 policy?
Other Thoughts: Be aware of ASRock and Newegg's warranty/RMA policy before you purchase ASRock.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It worked while it worked. The modular design made for a cleaner install. No dangling power cables to stuff and hide.
Cons: Died after 2 months.
Other Thoughts: Not worth the RMA hassle for a $50 PS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast and quiet drive.
Cons: I bought one of these for an Intel Atom based machine. Left it run a burn in test over the weekend. When I got back to work the machine was sitting at a black "No boot device" screen. Ordered a second drive to replace the first (didn't have time to go through the RMA process). Installed the second drive. After a reinstall of the OS and drivers, ran a burn in test over the weekend again. This time I got back and it was still running fine. I thought I was in luck. Unfortunately half way through the day "No boot device". DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
Other Thoughts: I have a third one of these drives in another machine that seems to be working fine. After these two failures though, I think I'll replace it before it dies as well.
After seeing the canned response from ocZ to other feedback on this drive I have decided to red flag ocZ in our approved vendor list.
