Pros: Great little htpc. Mine is set up with a kingston SSD, 2gb RAM, Stardock dual hard drive dock, and IOgear keyboard.
Cons: Fan used to be loud until.
Other Thoughts: I ended up denting the case when I dropped it, so I drilled some holes in it to improve cooling. It didn't make a huge difference, so I just decided to leave the cover off and now the fan rarely makes any noise. So, if you don't mind the aesthetics, it is an effective way to cool the unit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Small size
-Track ball is efficient
Cons: -Left and right click buttons sometimes do not work as if those buttons are momentarily disconnected. It will take a few seconds (~5 secs) for them to resume functioning.
Other Thoughts: Other than the left and right click buttons not working sometimes, this keyboard has worked well for my HTPC setup. I like the accurate action of the trackball on the lowest DPI setting. However, I wish there were alternate left and right click buttons near the trackball, so that I can navigate and click on items without having to use two hands. IOGEAR recently announced a new version of this keyboard which also has trigger buttons (similar to xbox 360 controller), which would be nice for web surfing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
Pros: These sound great hooked up to my Sony STR DN1000 amp. The bass is so good that a subwoofer is really not necessary. These are great for music and pretty good for movies in a 2.0 set up.
Cons: These are quite deep so ensure you have enough space.READ FULL REVIEW
