Pros: Works. Now I only have to carry 1 adapter around with my tablet instead of 3.
Cons: Not free.
Pros: I put this in my custom server and 2 years later and still going. For the first year it ran almost constantly 24/7, hooked up to a APC Smart UPS 3000. This unit pulls some power though. When I shut it down and only began using it on weekends I noticed almost a $100 drop in my electric bill per month. This was a server running 64 GB memory, and 5 - 1 TB SATA hard drives.
Pros: I added this to a custom server I built, Numerous features, fast and reliable. The only thing I plan on upgrading on this server any time soon is replacing SATA with SSDs so this motherboard will be used for another couple years.
Pros: I added this to a custom server I built, Fast and reliable. The only thing I plan on upgrading on this server any time soon it replacing SATA with SSDs so this processor will be used for another couple years. Intel Rocks.
Pros: Easy to install, recognized by every version of Windows so far including Server versions. 2 years later and still no problems.
Cons: It fell apart after a few months. I had it in my laptop bag, pulled it out to use about 2 or 3 times a week, and it lasted about 6 months. One day I was hooking it up and it fell apart.
Pros: I've had it for a few months now. Replaced my laptop hard drive and now it boots in less than 5 seconds after post running Windows 8.1.1. Makes the laptop seems like new again.
Cons: Expensive. Wish these drives would drop to under $200 soon. When they do I'm getting a few more.
Pros: Dependable, fast and lot of disk space. The Seagate dashboard is the easiest backup program I've ever used. Set it and forget it. I used it for my work laptop and was able to recover all my data when the brand new work laptop have drive crapped out on me.
Cons: Not free. Would love to see a 10 TB for this price.
Pros: Sleek with charge status lights. Cheaper than buying a bunch of batteries.
Cons: Charge connector constantly exposed on battery so the contacts get dirty faster. It's hard to get the controller placed correctly on the base for the charging to start. This means half the time you think it's charged it's not. Takes an extra few seconds to make sure it's seated and charging. If you accidentally bump the shelf or table it's on it can loose contact between the battery and base and stop charging.
Overall Review: Look for a better designed unit. The old niko designs where you mount the battery in a base is much better. With those you can buy a spare and have it charging while you play. This one requires the controller to be mounted to charge.
Pros: Used this in my I7 Windows 2012 Hyper-V server. Works great and is superfast.
Pros: Works great. Easy to install. Keeps my I7 cool.
Pros: You can't go wrong with this Power Supply. Antec and newegg are always the best.
Pros: Easy to install all components in this case. Airflow if so awesome in this case that the air coming out is cooler than the air going in even without liquid cooling.
Cons: Documentation needs some work as newbie's might need a few more minutes to figure out how to mount stuff like an old floppy drive. If you've built a pc before you will have no trouble.
Pros: I have 4 of these switches. 2 at home and 2 at work. All 4 have been running for over a year with the oldest one going on it's 3rd or 4th year. They have never failed and seem to be compatible with everything. I have hooked IP phones, numerous different pc's with various nics, NAS devices, printers, Xbox 360, PS3, WII, Samsung TV's, and all worked flawlessly.
Cons: Not Free.
Pros: I waited a year after I purchased this switch to review it to give you an honest performance review. This switch is fast and highly reliable. It's been running nonstop for over a year, protected by an APC UPS and has never failed. Some have said this switch gets hot but I would barely consider it warm to the touch. Worth every penny.
Pros: Installed in Custom 64-bit system. Easy to install and drivers worked with no issues. Running 3 OS's via indus technologies SATA HD switch. Vista Enterprise 64-bit, Windows XP SP3 32-bit. Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2 32-bit.
Pros: Easy to install and detected by Windows XP and Vista Enterprise.
Pros: It's Kingston... Need I say more. Great Quality and Value. Installed in a Dell OptiPlex GX280 to use as a Download server running Windows Server 2003.
Pros: Great drive for the price. I installed this drive in a DELL Optiplex GX280 Small Form Factor to use as Download Server with Forte. Runs quiet and fast.
Cons: No Cables provided but hey it's OEM.
Overall Review: Wish it was 800 GB for that price.
Pros: Well Built. Cables are good quality and long enough for most applications. I love the Surround Sound capability. Worked with my Microsoft Wireless Desktop Elite Keyboard and Mouse. I have a Dell Optiplex 620 running Windows XP Pro and a Dell Optiplex 745 running Windows Vista Business.
Cons: Hot Key Combination doesn't work with the Wireless Keyboards.
Overall Review: It'd be nice it they color coded the KVM cables for easier installation.
Pros: Great Product. We daisy chained 2 of these to allow remote access from 2 different locations. They work great on our Advocent and Belkins KVM.
Pros: Easy to hook up. Small so it fits almost anywhere.
Cons: Doesn't seem to support USB mice or keyboards with USB->PS2 adapters.
Overall Review: Be nice if they upgraded this product to support a USB mouse and keyboard.
Pros: Easy to install.
Cons: Freezes machine when use with certain PCMCIA cards. Example is Verison's Wireless Broadband card.
Overall Review: Drivers need to be rewritten.
