This review is from: Intel NUC6i3SYK Kit with 6th Generation Intel Core i3 Processor
Pros: Small, fast, and quiet. Comes with a full-size HDMI port.
Other Thoughts: Don't use the free bundled memory--it doesn't work. With good memory, I
ran benchmarks on Linux overnight without any problems. It runs the latest X.org
drivers and Linux 4.4 kernel with no issues.
Pros: This is the only USB 3.0 card that I've ever seen to work on a PowerEdge R720. All the other cards require a 4-port power connector to be plugged into the board, but this one does not, so it makes it easy to install in servers where there are no power cables available.
There are several different device drivers on the CD. The manual that comes with the card tells you exactly which one to use. It is OK to install the driver after installing the hardware.
Works out of the box in Linux (kernel needs CONFIG_USB_XHCI_HCD enabled).
Other Thoughts: The card provides a USB 3.0 root hub. The eSATA connector is basically a USB->SATA adapter built-in to the card, so it shows up as a USB 3.0 device.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: StarTech PLATEIDE2CF IDE to CF Adapter Card with a PCI Bracket
Pros: No free PCI slot required on mainboard--just pop it into any slot available on the chassis and you're set!
Cons: Needs the spare 4-pin power cable connected to it, but that's required for any IDE to CF adapter.
Other Thoughts: I've got at least 20 installed in the field for at least a year now and none have failed.READ FULL REVIEW
