GIGABYTE GA-F2A78M-D3H FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to setup. Stable.

Cons: Only that the BIOS needs to be updated for 1920x1080 VGA to properly display. Not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I'll keep using these instead of MSI boards.

MSI A88XM-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Out of 5 boards purchased, 4 are still working.

Cons: One of 5 boards died. It was RMA'd with MSI. The "repaired" board will not boot without resetting the BIOS every time. Hit F2 to continue is not acceptable. it continued to do this even after updating the BIOS. At least now it keeps the date, but it still won't boot to Windows without hitting F2. Poor workmanship on a supposedly repaired board. I'm not paying to ship it back again, for a "repair" that isn't properly tested.

Other Thoughts: I'm staying with Gigabyte due to MSI's failure to ship me a properly functioning board after "repairing" it. Quality control is terrible when this happens. Don't buy this board. If it dies, you may as well throw it away.

SanDisk SDSSDP-128G-G25 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Firmware on the two most recent SSD's was version 3.1.0. The "older" drives, of the exact same model, that I purchased used firmware 3.2.0. Sandisk tech support told me that if their toolkit or dashboard software won't update the firmware (they won't) from 3.1.0 to 3.2.0, needed to run on a new motherboard, there was no way to do so. I have no use for a product that won't allow updates to fix compatibility issues.

Other Thoughts: I will stick with Kingston, Crucial and Samsung. Sandisk tech is too flaky. The two SSD's with firmware 3.1.0 are being sent back for a refund.
