BIOSTAR TZ77A LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive board, and worked perfectly right out of the box. This was my first Biostar purchase, so far I am very satisfied with the performance. It replaced another brand of motherboard which only lasted 16 months or so before the "B" memory channel failed, and cost a lot more money. This board is pretty basic, kind of like an old 1970's Ford pickup. Not too fancy, but it always runs and gets the job done, a real workhorse.

Cons: My only complaint is that the PCB seemed to be warped a little bit where the back panel connections are located but for the price I can't complain because it doesn't seem to affect performance. The Toverclocker software is not very good, so I uninstalled it. Better to change the settings in bios anyway.

Other Thoughts: This board, for the price was an excellent buy, but I can't vouch for its long term reliability as I have only had it for a short time. I was able to overclock my Sandy Bridge I5 2500K to 4GHZ with water cooling without any difficulty and could probably take it farther, but I don't really see the need to do so . I had to overclock in BIOS because the Toverclocker software was worthless.

OCZ Vertex 2 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very inexpensive, much faster than a mechanical drive. My old Alienware 9700m is more responsive and boots faster than before.

Cons: I could find very little wrong with this SSD. Windows showed it as being a 1.9 TB drive at first, and formatting was a bit of a hassle, but it works as intended so far. So I guess there are no real cons to speak of.

Other Thoughts: My Alienware 9700M is never going to be able to take full advantage of the speed this SSD is capable of, but for the money I was happy with the performance increase it provided. It is much faster than the 7200 RPM drive that it replaced.
