Pros: UEFI bios is kinda neat.
First time using something like it.
Cons: A little flimsier than other boards I've used in the past.
Overall Review: Works great with Linux.
Pros: Awesomely fast.
Overall Review: Worth it.
Pros: 8 cores, cheap
Cons: stock heatsink fan sucks.
fan is really loud.
heatsink has some heatpipes that hiss
Pros: Free w/ purchase of some RAM for my macbook pro.
Small size (the usb ports on MacBook pro are stupidly close together), so this drive fits with a mouse plugged in.
Cons: Very slow (~ 2 MB/sec) writes. All my other flash drives are at least twice as fast. Not fast enough for Win7 ReadyBoost.
The cap over the USB plug fits very loose
Pros: No problems so far
Cons: Of course as soon as I order two separate sticks, they introduce an 8GB package that's $20 cheaper than buying two 4GB sticks individually.
Overall Review: I ordered two 4GB sticks for my MacBook Pro. Ran Memtest86+ on it and it showed many errors. Put the original RAM back in and ran Memtest86+ again - got more errors. A little research revealed that Memtest86+ on Apple's intel hardware can give false positives.
Downloaded a memtest frontend called "Rember" and ran it with the new RAM, no problems.
Comments: Worked flawlessly with sk98lin Linux driver. Excellent product.
Comments: Excellent product. Looks great too.
