   Overall I am disappointed with the Evergreen Performa III unit.  It lacked stability, which may have been caused by a bios issue.  The testing program Evergreen uses should include better support for retail computer manufacturers.  I highly doubt that there are no Bios updates for a machine that is almost 2 years old.  

   On a side note I have seen other hardware review sites review the same unit, and didn't have the same stability problems that we had.  Never the less, I cannot give the Performa III a good rating until stability, and support for retail computer manufacturers is improved.



Pros:

  • Performance from what we could see in our limited benchmarks was on par with a P3 850 
  • Easy upgrade, very straight forward
  • Clear instructions


Cons:

  • Lack of stability
  • Lack of support for retail computer manufacturers
  • May not work if you have a retail computer
  • Pricey
