Great bang for your buck4/20/2020 11:33:42 AM

Pros: - Fast, affordable processor with quality integrated graphics

Cons: - None so far

Overall Review: Got this for an ASRock Deskmini build because I couldn’t justify the additional cost of the 3400G for a 15-20% improvement in performance from SMT. Really happy so far—works great for my tiny Linux workstation build.

Fast, flawless RAM so far4/20/2020 11:18:54 AM

Cons: - A bit expensive

Overall Review: Used this in an ASRock Deskmini paired with a 3200G. No errors in memtest86. Works great so far, powering a small Linux workstation.

Great for installation media4/18/2020 11:36:45 AM

Pros: - Super cheap - Worked great

Overall Review: I picked this up because it was the cheapest available at the time, and I couldn’t find any other flash drives lying around my apartment. I can’t speak to its longevity (seems to be made entirely of plastic), but it worked just fine to throw Linux on some machines.

Great little barebones system4/18/2020 11:26:13 AM

Pros: - Ridiculously small, but well built - Easy install with good instructions - Comes with the WiFi kit - Great Linux support (everything worked on Arch out of the box) - Pretty great connectivity for such a small form factor, including 3 display outputs and USB-C. - Decent BIOS - Fits a stock wraith cooler (from 3200G) without the shroud (also comes with its own CPU cooler as well)

Cons: - Probably not going to be upgradable unless ASRock makes sister boards in the same form factor, with the same connectivity - No CPU overclocking

Overall Review: I used this to build a small Linux workstation, paired with a 3200G, 32GB of DDR4-3200 Crucial Ballistix RAM, and a 500GB Samsung SSD. I had to adjust the profile of the RAM to run at the right speed in the BIOS, otherwise I’ve had no issues at all. I picked this over going with an Intel NUC, due to it accepting an off-the-shelf desktop processor and being an overall better value for the money. I really hope ASRock continues to make these kinds of kits. They’re great at saving your wallet and your desk space when trying to build small (which usually comes at a substantial premium).

Go go QC Pro 90004/24/2008 6:29:58 AM

Pros: Plug-N-Play with uvcvideo module in Linux High resolution -- looks _beautiful_ Fairly good microphone Supported by Skype out of the box

Cons: None yet.

Overall Review: There seems to be a bug with Skype 2.0 on Linux where the bottom one third of the video will loop. Apparently this can be fixed by checking out the latest SVN of the uvcvideo module then compiling and installing it yourself. If you plan to record video, be sure to get the latest guvcview. This is probably your best choice of webcam if you're using Linux (imo).
