Nice!

Transcend 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS8GSDHC6
Transcend 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS8GSDHC6

Pros: I was a little bit worried about getting this card because I had heard about compatibility issues with this and certain card readers and electronics. When I got it and saw that it worked in both my digital camera AND my internal card reader, I was ecstatic. There's tons of room on this thing. I can store up to 4,030 photos on the highest resolution of a 7.1 mega pixel camera or I can take over an hour (64 min) of video.

Cons: None so far.

Overall Review: For people searching for compatibility: Camera: Canon PowerShot SD750 Card Reader: Atech Flash Xm-4U 11-in-1 USB 2.0

Works fine.

Pros: Easy to install and worked right out of the package. System instantly recognized the new RAM.

Cons: Have been waiting over 3 months for my rebate. Where are you rebate??

Overall Review: I bought these for my initial build about a year and a half ago. Over 3 months ago I decided I wanted to double my RAM so bought another set. Works fine with my GIGABYTE GA-965P-DS3.

Nice

Pros: Reads SD and SDHC cards which is mostly what I use. Have had absolutely no problem with installing and using.

Cons: Not too thrilled about having a permanent drive letter assigned to every card slot, especially since I have 3 hard drives, 2 of which are partitioned. The 'My Computer' folder is super cluttered. I also wish that it had come with a 5.25 bay expansion plate. Since I only have 1 external 3.5, I had to remove my floppy drive (which I don't really use anyway but I like to have it JUST in case)

Overall Review: Overall, good quality and does what it's intended to.

No Problems

Pros: Great board. Easy installation. Good layout. Manual easy to understand and follow. Software easy to install. BIOS was a snap to setup.

Cons: Not really happy with the onboard sound software.

Overall Review: Although I've changed out and replaced a few dozen, components and parts over the years, this was my first "official" build started from scratch. I don't think I could have chosen an easier board to start with. There really wasn't much to fiddle around with to get this to boot up. Install board, hook up cables, start computer, and *poof* , it just worked.
