ASUS Desktop PC Essentio CM6730-06 Intel Core i5 2320 (3.00GHz) 6GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, works

Cons: Warranty sticker nonsense

Other Thoughts: I bought this to use as a Linux box. It acts as a file and print server, and monitors my CCTV cameras with ZoneMinder. I bought a cheap 8-input BT878 card to connect my cameras, so I needed a machine with an old-school PCI slot. This thing works fine, I had to void the warranty to install the capture card but oh well. I got it set up, stuck it in the closet, and it basically just works. It's on 24/7 and no heat or other issues, so I really can't complain. For the price it's less hassle than building my own.

Cisco Small Business SR2024C Gigabit Switch
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs DOA 08/02/2009

This review is from: Cisco Small Business SR2024C Gigabit Switch

Pros: None really

Cons: We connected a few machines to this switch and connected the switch into our network. Immediately, performance on the entire network slowed to a crawl. We disconnected the switch and the other equipment returned to normal speed. Devices connected through this switch experienced packet loss and very slow speeds, regardless of which ports we used. This thing is obviously defective.

Other Thoughts: I should have read online reviews before buying this. I just sort of assumed that unmanaged switches were such a commodity item by now that you couldn't screw them up, but I guess I was wrong where Linksys is concerned.

ASUS Laptop F3 Series F3T-AP042C AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-56 (1.80GHz) 1GB Memory 120GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600 15.4
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very fast, great with games, screen is outstanding.

Cons: Should ship with 2GB, initial Vista setup is terrible

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop along with a Corsair VS1GSDS667D2 DIMM to add a second gig. The laptop is a great value even without the added RAM, it plays games like Oblivion acceptably well at 1280x800 and pretty much everything about the hardware is top notch. Even the little USB mouse it comes with is good for gaming.

The only bad thing was the Vista setup. The out of box experience is terrible, the machine just bogs down as it tries to update Vista, Norton, Windows Defender, etc, and all of the Vista security stuff is a nightmare. Removing norton, disabling UAC, and disabling Windows Search service made all the difference. It's now just as useable as my XP desktop, even with all of the Aero visual effects enabled -- the video card is more than able to handle that, it scores a 4.8 on the Vista Experience graphics ratings.

Adding the RAM was a snap, just unscrew the big panel and pop the DIMM into the free socket. The laptop automatically detects it without going into the BIOS
