MSI B85M GAMING LGA 1150 Intel B85 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: good feature set, good price for what is on the board and nice layout, nice

Cons: marketing nonsense from MSI, promising potential OC on the bundle g3258 which as everyone is mad about doesn't have. when testing it out on my bench, i had to play around for a while trying to figure out why it wouldn't post... it was running but nothing happened. the resolution was that since i was using a single ram module because well if i use one good module is usually reduces the change of conflicts on initial booting. i had to figure out it wanted to be in dimm slot 4 im usually it's dimm 2 in all the other boards i've used. but there was no mention anywhere in the manual other than "place dimms in slots" that's how helpful the manual was.

Other Thoughts: I was really torn on how to rate this MB because due to the combo it has value even with no OC, above its price point, but on the other hand, i picked this because of the budget OC promise. i always seem to have an issue like this with msi i go budget and get a little burned at the same time, the included software is not as polished as the two top dogs, but you pay less and get less. the warranty is soldi and i have a couple old am3 which are a good 4-5 years old now still going so i feel this board will last once it gets past the first 30 days of use, but i guess i have to go with 3 because of bad marketing that's deceiving people. if there are bios updates coming then it may have to get updated but I'm not getting my hopes up

G.Skill 32GB microSDHC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter (FF-TSDG32GA-C10)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: good dollar vs size value when it was on sale

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: works well as just some storage on a tablet so minimal read and writes and it works well

ASUS Transformer Book T100 Intel Z3740 Quad Core 2GB DDR3 RAM 64GB SSD 10.1
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: small, light, tablet and laptop, inexpensive. can run dual monitors. runs full windows, can even play some basic games well like AOEII

Cons: charging! the need for the use of the included charger and there is one that is marketed for this device for about $12 on another retailer are the only ones that will charge it while in use and with any speed as most chargers just don't work
Other minor gripes are the track pad, rear facing speakers

Other Thoughts: neutral comments and realizing what this product is a cheap dual purpose tablet
screen resolution is lower than other tablets, track pad is not so great, the tiny chicklet keys are tiny (but i still can type decent on it) the 2 gigs is understandable but it can impact performance, but your really pushing it outside its comfort range at that point anyway.

i would only suggest the 64 gm version not the one without the hdd as being light versatile.
