  • XOP boards suck

    I have been in this business since 1984 & these XOP boards really suck. Anyone having any GOOD luck with these freakin boards? I'm sure there are some, but damn...Also the 9860 Creative tech boards. Man O man. Gimme a AMF Mk5 board anyday....I personally believe the 1980-90 logic boards rule. Just my opinion since I gotta work on this stuff for a living...

        XOP's aren't too bad in the right conditions... their biggest problem is that they're a lot more sensitive to power fluctuations, surges, and static than an MK board. MKs seem to be a lot more tolerant to power problems, and are better if you're in an area that has power conditions that are a bit unpredictable.

          Yep, In the RIGHT conditions. Like a Lab! I will tell a customer "I'll buy it back if you are not satisfied" with an Omega Tek board, NO way I'll do that with anything creative tech. made. WAY to sensitive to bowling alley electrical "oddities"! HA [img]/content/btubb/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/usflag.jpg[/img]
