Pros: Installing Windows from it as I type.
Cons: Not USB3, but then it's CHEAP.
Other Thoughts: I avoid using optical disks, but sometimes have to. It's kinda nice you don't have to muck up your box with a DVD writer that you use only occasionally.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill Apollo - RK-9100xRBR - Mechanical Keyboard with Red Backlit
Pros: Still typing faster and more accurately than with my "old" Rosewill 9000 with Blue switches
Cons: After a week of use, I'm experiencing the the "a" double taps the Bryan posted aabout. It's pretty darn annoying. I changed the Character Repeat delay in Windows to the lowest setting and it doesn't seem to help. It's really kind of random. It's not too terrible at this point, but if it gets worse, it could be a deal breaker.
Other Thoughts: Still can't get used to the keycap "engravings". The point of a backlit keyboard is to haave the "engravings" visible, and with the weird side-by-side orientation of the characters, they are very hard to read. Rosewill: look aat a 1986 IBM keyboard and copy the graphics. Jeez. Grr, and the aa problem!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: EDIMAX EW-7811Un N150 USB 2.0 Wireless nano Adapter
Pros: Unplugged my Pi, plugged the adapter into a USB hub (the TekRepublic 7-port), fired it up, SSHed into Xbian, picked the adapter from the list, and it worked fine. Just watched a 1080p video from my computer upstairs without a hiccup.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I got this solely for use on my Raspberry Pi running Xbian (XBMC for RPi). I actually have an ethernet cable available, but this actually seemed to work even better.READ FULL REVIEW
