Patriot Xporter XT Rage 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GRUSB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Failure rate 06/10/2011

This review is from: Patriot Xporter XT Rage 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PEF64GRUSB

Pros: Fast, high capacity.

Cons: We purchased several of these units for usage by our employees. Several of them are exhibiting data corruption after just a few months of usage. I am constantly finding corrupted files on my own.

Other Thoughts: The previous generation of the Xporters, the longer rubbery ones, were solid. We had used dozens of them for many years without a single problem.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X8DTL-iF-O Dual LGA 1366 Intel 5500 ATX Dual Intel Xeon 5500 and 5600 Series Server Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: These are some of the best server boards you can find in the market at this price. There are basically no cons. Most of the "cons" in other reviews is from users that are not familiar with the complexities of such board.

Cons: No cons. For the last year, we've used them to build a Xen based cloud that now has more than 300 servers with these boards. No failures whatsoever except for a board that I am sure we accidentally zapped with static.

Other Thoughts: If you aren't familiar with servers, please educate yourself first. The complaints I see in these reviews are from ignorance.

First of all, it uses NEHALEM Xeons, which all need ECC Registered RAM. To the one who says board will not post with 5506 CPUs and DDR3-1333: 5506 CPUs only use up to 800Mhz RAM, only Xeon 5550 and higher will use 1333Mhz RAM. And it HAS TO BE ECC Registered RAM!

Chipset temperature is a bit high. These boards are meant to be in cases with high power fans blowing directly at these chipsets and CPUs, using an air flow cover.

If a case fan causes the BIOS to lock up, you have a grounding problem.

RMA process at Supermicro is 24 hour turnaround. I call, they send the equipment in advance (if I pay for it) and then they wait for yours to arrive. Supermicro is a business equipment manufacturer. You have to be willing to pay.

If you use ECC, non registered RAM, the board will work. However, yes, it will crash from time to time, because that is the WRON

Cisco Valet M10 802.11b/g/n Wireless HotSpot Router up to 300Mbps/ Easy setup by USB dongle inside
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None really.

Cons: This router is quite buggy and underpowered. Ever since I installed it, I had the impression that connectivity was slowing down. I confirmed my feeling finally when downloading some TV episodes via my iPad, at a rate of not even 1MB per minute. One single TV episode took 6-7 hours to download. Normally it takes 20-30 minutes.

Googling the problem, I found many other people reporting the same problem. The issue seems to happen randomly.

The router also isn't as "easy" as they claim. The "easy" software does not always work. Some computers would be constantly rejected off the wifi network. Trying a manual setup would sometimes not work either. I have a Sony Vaio that connected only after an hour of fiddling with it. I also have a month old MacBook Pro that will NOT connect to this wifi router, no matter what I've tried. I've disabled security settings, changed channels, B/G/Auto, etc.

Other Thoughts: Buggy product. If you google more about these issues, you will find many people reporting it. Cisco support is also useless. Check more reviews for this product at other shopping sites and you will see the problems above being reported by many others.
