Pros: Absolutely great for everything I do. The graphics are perfect for displaying all 400 specimens of my butterfly collection at once while recording sound and video at the same time. Doing this while also doing a five-way 3 monitor conference with Australian University and splitting 2 displays shows just how strong this product is. I never fail to be impressed with AMD processors. I like their sturdy pin system. No hair like springy wires like the other brand. Very forgiving. I've built 2 systems with this APU and had no issues or glitches.
Other Thoughts: The 3D graphics test out with Passmark 30% higher than the competitors $300+ processors. In modern systems the processor is not the bottleneck. Even with the fastest SSD like my Vector, this processor easily outruns it multi-tasking. AMD APU is very simply a great product. Their stuff just works and keeps on working.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Bolton 88 chip-set and UEFI layout is very easy to navigate. Fan speeds can be customized. Works beautifully with Linux Mint 18. Instantly set 1866 memory.
Cons: None except only one sys fan post. I knew that going in, so no problem.
Other Thoughts: I've built 2 inexpensive systems with this board in the last month, and both were super easy with no glitches.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: About 20% Faster than my best SP 5400RPM for making system images with Paragon. About 20% faster for data transfer. I put 13GB mixed files and an Win 10 iso on it from Samsung 840 Pro in 2.9 minutes whereas the 5400RPM USB HDD took 3.6 minutes.
Cons: Slippery. Dont drop!READ FULL REVIEW
