Pros: The drives where shipped fast and LOOK good. Did work
Cons: These drives are faulty! I ran 10 days of test after the person I sold these to complained. Non of these drives ran at 7200 via the test. Only 1 reported SATA 3 transfer speeds, one NCQ did not work and ran at SATA 2 transfer speeds, the last one ran at SATA 1 transfer speeds.
I thought maybe it the port. No dice test all them on different ports and got the same results.
I will be returning this junk. How dare me switching to WD from Seagate or Hitachi.
To confirm I have 3 Seagate 3tb SATA3 drives and ran the same test. ALL PASSED perfectly.
Other Thoughts: No, how can I recommend defective equipment to others. For the normal person they would have just got ripped off.
Serious, buy Seagate or Hitachi...........
For me just thousand of lost $$$ in trouble shooting these drives.
Pros: Great product. Looks awesome. PNP or plug n play. Drop in check BIOS and did have to make minor adjustment to get speed to rated speed. I am thinking motherboard issue. Simple adjustment and no problem
Other Thoughts: Heavy and I wish was about $50 cheaper. Market demand and prices.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: AMD APU technology really are good. Performance is good considering the price point. If your looking for extreme dig deeper in the wallet black edition I7 with no gpu and discrete 690 or 7990. But for $500 less you get a great performer add a discrete crossfire solution and you have a really strong gamer. BTW XBOX and Playstation both use APU and discrete in their design.
CISC technology is dying off for ARM... RISC this had to happen. But I am a old die hard and AMD for the money is my winner.
Cons: APU is a bit warm. This requires a better cooler than the factory supplied, so add $40 to the GPU cost. At that price point you could get I5 and intels horrible built in GPU.
The APU runs 50C and 32C with off market cooler. Game mode pushes back to 52C for me.
Other Thoughts: AMD............ Thanks for all the great processors. Just wish you could make a cool processor at I7 performance and at A10 prices.READ FULL REVIEW
