SIIG 2-Port RS232 Serial PCIe with 16950 UART Model JJ-E02111-S1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Get what you pay for 05/27/2014

This review is from: SIIG 2-Port RS232 Serial PCIe with 16950 UART Model JJ-E02111-S1

Pros: - Clean install
- Been working for several months straight
- No connection issues
- Low profile

Cons: - Pricier than other rs-232 cards

Other Thoughts: I can't take any eggs off for being expensive because this card seems to beat all other cards and in a business environment, cutting corners on quality and connection hurts us in the end. Installed in a customer's new system that needs an RS-232 bar code scanner connection to work (dumb program accepts USB scanner connections in every one of its applications EXCEPT ONE!).

Dealing with robotics applications in the biotech industry and fighting with manufacturers and developers to STOP USING RS-232 connections has led to some extensive use of USB->RS-232 and add-in cards. This OXPCIe952 chipset seems to work great and I will be purchasing more as we replace outdated computers that still require RS-232.

As an IT professional, my actual tech level in RS-232 is average at best (at least I know what a null and straight serial cable are!). Commands and development using this protocol are beyond me.

NETGEAR 8 Port Gigabit Business-Class Desktop Switch - Lifetime Warranty (GS108)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Reliability that Netgear provides for 24/7 operation
- Lifetime Warranty
- Great speed
- Great price for unmanaged gigabit 8-port switch
- Metal construction

Cons: Nothing to knock off an egg:
- You can buy cheaper ones, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: In a professional/business environment, 24/7 reliability is necessary. Other cheaper switches will do the job for normal consumers, but for business, any interruption is lost money.

Also, I'm getting sick of people marking their knowledge of devices as "5 - High" when they post about things they do not know. I am an IT professional and I rate as somewhat high. A networking professional who works with something like a telnet client and switches day-in and day-out is at level "5 - High". Flame on!

Logitech Desktop MK120 Mouse and keyboard Combo (920-002565)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Basic Goodness 12/05/2013

This review is from: Logitech Desktop MK120 Mouse and keyboard Combo (920-002565)

Pros: This keyboard/mouse combo is the basis of our IT consulting with around 200 computers that undergo heavy usage. They last about a year until the employees start asking for new computers because of key sticking or paint wearing out, but again, our clients use these keyboards a lot.
-Good price for a combo keyboard/mouse from a quality manufacturer
-Decent build quality for its class

Cons: -No frills.
-A more expensive keyboard might last a little longer, but for $20 combo price it is well worth it.

Other Thoughts: I generally like longer than usual USB cables, but for 98% of our computers, this length is okay.
