This review is from: LINKSYS LGS124 24-Port Business Gigabit Switch
Pros: No fans to create noise so it's silent, simple unmanaged switch which means nothing to configure. Fast & reliable, I've had it plugged in 24/7 for about 8 months and it's still working great with no issues.
Cons: None that I can see, works great for me.
Other Thoughts: I got this for cloning laptops and had been using old used 24 port 3com gigabit switches and this one really cut the sessions down in 1/2 the time. Using the 3com each session would take 2 to 2 1/2 hours to finish but with the Linksys it brought the time down to just over an hour. I have a bunch of new laptops getting ready to be delivered so I'm already thinking about ordering at least another one or two of these and totally abandon those old ones that I've been using.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, built in graphics that are actually fairly decent for onboard, definitely an impressive little chip for what it is.
Cons: None that I can see.
Other Thoughts: Didn't use the factory cooler that comes with it but instead used a Cooler Master GeminII M4 due to clearance issues but was able to use a standard fan instead of the slim fan which comes with that cooler. I'm using it with the MSI A88XM Gaming motherboard and it's been great. I'm using Ubuntu and I built this mainly for htpc and also steam client to play games on my tv.
Just ordered an MSI r7 250 to try out dual graphics with it.
Pros: Great monitor, sharp image and no dead pixels.
Cons: Everytime when you power on the monitor the menu pops open for a few seconds then goes away. I've went through the settings and cannot find a way to disable it.
Other Thoughts: The computer I'm using this with the onboard video only has vga & display port outputs and if needed I would buy another one again.
The menu popup to me is annoying though.
