Pros: Nothing too good or bad about it. The build is alright, fan placement is okay
Cons: Overall airflow is hit or miss depending on the heat being put out.
Overall Review: Good for lighter builds.
Pros: gets me by in old emulator games.
Overall Review: get it or dont?
Pros: good quality
Cons: Hard to build in if you are not careful with what you get to put into it.
Overall Review: Get it, or dont.
Pros: The AM1 socket had a short life and with good reason. The board did fine but why wouldn't it with such low powered chips. Played Return of Reckoning on it. (5350APU)
Overall Review: not much to say, a dead socket when it was born.
Pros: I use this to slap in some old 3.5" drives to keep backups of family photos and other docs to put into cold storage. Its gone through at least 10 hard drives now.
Overall Review: They're worth it if you need it.
Pros: Barely mounted it to a passively cooled gpu, 5350, but it was holding on with only gravity for the most part.
Overall Review: just go with what the manufacturer gives you.
Pros: Not much space but does what its supposed to. Used it for temp storage for video games and now its cold storage for family photos.
Overall Review: SSDs are cheaper now, put money towards that tech vs this capacity of older tech.
Pros: Great to host simple servers or browse the web.
Cons: Chugs doing even basic tasks
Overall Review: Not bad, nothing to write home about.
Pros: Bought this in 2016 for my FX 8320e and a R9 390. It still runs perfectly today. Just had to repast the south bridge and north.
Overall Review: Worth the pennies.
didn't loose connection
Cons: slow for 2021 standards
Overall Review: If you just need something to get yourself on the internet, this is it.
Pros: My wife has had it for a few months now, games look great, pictures, and really anything that shows up on the monitor looks very crisp.
Overall Review: Cheap monitors can get you pretty far. I dont need anything flashy.
Pros: Some may think cheap is bad, especially in electronics... but heck, my wife has been gaming with this thing for about 4 months now and not one problem. Plug and play, adjustable DPI, and is a nice fit for both of our hands. Hers are alot smaller then mine but we both find it fit comfortably in the palm and claw grips.
Cons: Wish there was a pinky rest, but oh well.
Overall Review: Get it if you want something you can abuse.
Pros: Since most PC's these days arnt using CD/DVD Roms anymore, this is nice to have around when those rare occurrences come up. Has worked well with 5 PC's with no additional software needed.
Cons: Kinda sucks it uses 2 USB 2.0 cables which could be replaced by one USB 3.0/.1/C but its cheap, none the less. (One is for power and the other for Data.)
Overall Review: Crapped out after a few years but it was cheap.
Pros: The drive has been working very well. I use it for my HTPC OS/Programs. It boots everything up with Windows 10 and a few other programs in about 3-5 minutes. Not much more to say other then its a solid HDD.
Overall Review: Cheap drive, good for long term storage(cold) or some light weight games. (MB to a few Gigs)
Pros: Decent airflow
Overall Review: Cheap and didn't make too much noise.
Overall Review: Worth the buy if you can find them
Pros: Not RGB galor. (Replaced the fan with Be-Quiet! fans)
Side panel is nice, even with just the motherboard glowing logos, it lights the case up.
Easy to build in, put a new system in it within an hour.
Cons: The fan it comes with isn't the greatest, but if it is all you can afford, not bad.
Overall Review: Would buy another if building another system.
Pros: Its my main drive with win10 pro.
Boots up within 13 second with the BIOS being included.
Game and files transfer at 2.8-3.1GBps on Read.
Games don't load much quicker on a NVMe drive compared to a decent SSD but a second or two is a slight win.
Overall Review: I will buy another for a new system. Having one drive vs a SSD + 1-4 HDDs/SSDs is a nice change.
Pros: Looks good.
Compatibility is good.
Zen 3 "should" be good.
Overall Review: I love the board, does everything it says it can do and overclocked the 1600af to 4.1 with low temps all around. Stress tested for 13hrs with nothing hitting over 84C on VRMs or Core Package.
Pros: Lots of room to work with.
Easy cable management if you route before connecting everything, otherwise it will look bad if you were to install the PSU last.
Quiet design both in looks and noise with decent fans installed.
Easy to transfer existing system into, less than an hour for me.
Cons: Front acrylic panel has a small crack from shipping...
Overall Review: UPS Sucks.
Pros: Pushes a lot of air, quiet, reliable.
Overall Review: Grey is a nice change :)
Pros: Speedy, cheap, reliable.
Overall Review: Even though the sticker has green on it, still a nice looking drive.
Pros: Needed more power, this did the job.
Overall Review: Worth it when on sale.
Pros: Can overclock to 3446Mhz no problem with my Ryzen 5 1600AF.
Overall Review: Make sure you read your motherboards supported frequencies and see if they have a supported ram list for your model. Gigabyte does it pretty well.
Pros: Like putting butter on a jelly sandwich. Worth every gram.
Overall Review: Keep a spare syringe on hand for the "better to have it and not need it then need it and not have it" moment.
