Pros: Worked fine. Installed into a Acer Asprie 5100 to simply upgrade memory from 1gb to 3gb.
Overall Review: Decent price

Cons: Really none I see
Overall Review: Overall great price for sound and a handy little usb sound card
Pros: Was a good price for a power supply.
Cons: You get what you pay for. Worked for about a week and it fried so basically a piece of junk to me.
Overall Review: Would not buy this model again maybe buy brand but not this item.
Pros: WAS A VERY EASY INSTALL. FAN AMD SUPPLIED WITH IS KEEPING MY CPU TEMP AROUND 37.5 I AM USING A GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2 AM2+/AM2 AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AND Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664AA800 - SWEET SETUP AND GOOD SPEED
Cons: NONE REALLY JUST PLACING CPU TO BOARD NOT TO HAPPY WITH THE LOCK METAL DOWN PIECE. I ALWAYS THINK PIECE MADE CHEAP BUT HEY IT DOES THE JOB ONCE ON LOL. SOME PEOPLE SAY SUPPLIED FAN RUNS LOUD BUT COME ON GUYS A FAN GONNA HAVE SOUND AND JUST COMMON TO HEAR LITTLE FAN, LETS YOU KNOW IT'S WORKING LOL
Overall Review: AMD IS ALL I BUY. PERSONALLY NOT LIKE INTEL SO STICK WITH AMD CPU'S SOME PEOPLE SAY AMD RUN HOTTER BUT I HAVE NEVER HAD A ISSUE WITH ANY AMD CPU OVER PAST 10 YEARS. IF YOU WANT GOOD SPEED THEN THIS IS THE CPU FOR YOUR BUCK.
Pros: Very easy to install. Runs smooth for me and fan AMD supplied keeps cool. My average running temp is 37.5 I am set up with a GIGABYTE GA-MA74GM-S2 AM2+/AM2 AMD 740G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard -and using Crucial 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model CT2KIT25664AA800 - *** Sweet setup and fast and dependable
Cons: What I really not like is Only had one IDE(IDE Connector). My past boards had two so I was running hard drive on one IDE and on other IDE was running two cd rom drives. Now I only can run hard drive and one cd rom drive.**2nd Was weird with only one psp/2 port. Use to seeing a purple psp/2 keyboard and green psp/2 mouse port but this board of course has no green psp/2 port but not biggie to me cause I have a usb port mouse. So if you own a mouse with a geen psp/2 adapter I suggest you buy a usb port mouse or they make a adapter you can plug your purple/green psp/2 ports into to make usb port.
Overall Review: I built like 8 computers in last 3 years and usually when I replace a motherboard from a factory broad or aftermarket broad I always have to format my hard drive but Not this time. I upgraded from a Asus 754 "socket a" motherboard and 3400+ AMD processor with 1gb Crucial pc2100 memory. I stuck this new Gigabyte motherboard in,attached all and pushed the power. I was shocked to see windows load and not have to format cause usually when I switch motherboards I had too but like I said Not this time. I am very pleased with that. Oh only issue I had with is my mouse not work though usb so had to use keyboard for commands and loaded gigabyte driver cd and theN mouse and all worked. Sweet deal!!!!
Pros: Crucial memory is running smooth as always. No issues and works like a charm
Overall Review: Only had this memory about week but Crucial is the only brand I buy now days and never in past 10 years had any issue out of Crucial memory to any motherboard I put too. As for Kingston I have had motherboard not work but worked with Crucial. So Crucial is the way to go I believe.
Pros: HAVE HAD ALMOST TWO YEARS AND STILL WORKING LIKE A CHAMP. WOULD BUY AGAIN ON MY NEW BUILD
Overall Review: GREAT ITEM FOR THE MONEY
