Pros: Very easy to hook up. I'm using UTP Cat6. My run is 60ft over solid UTP cat6, and then I have my own patch cable (cat6, about 12-18in in length) going to each interface. It doesn't even take a moment to initialize. If you unplug the cat6, it'll work again as SOON as you plug it back in. I'm currently using this with two USB devices, an IR receiver for Windows Media Center and Kodi, and also a wireless Lenovo keyboard/mouse (the handlheld type). Works great.
Other Thoughts: Sorry, I didn't test USB speeds as I don't need to hook anything else up to it. I may try a flash drive, but right now I watch all movies over the network to a XFS file server.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Added a 3rd monitor to my setup. My current desktop at work is a small form factor and won't fit one of our standard quad display cards (standard PCI-size, not low-profile). I popped this baby on and running it at 1680x1050 on a 22" LCD. I don't watch videos on it, but I did test a full-screen youtube video and it came through just fine.
Cons: A few times a month all displays will go out for a couple of seconds and then come back on. It doesn't really bother me because it's infrequent and very brief.
Other Thoughts: Yes, I consider myself a 5 for technical knowledge as I'm an IT tech who has done desktop support, help desk, and now specialize in doing product evals at work as well as managing our virtual environment.
Please take a look at the CON. I would have given 4.5 stars if that was an option, but I don't think it was enough to drop it a full star, so I left it as a 5.
One thing I thought may be a problem: choppiness
THIS IS NOT THE CASE!! It's not choppy at all, to my surprise. I have this thing tucked in the back of the desk and heat doesn't seem to be an issue.
This review is from: Microsoft XBOX 360 Gears of War 3 Limited Edition Console 320 GB Hard Drive
Pros: Beautiful, sleek, 320GB, 2 controllers, newer console design (slim), comes with the BEST xbox 360 game of all time, wifi, and the list goes on.
Other Thoughts: I've been playing Gears of War since the date the first one came out. Played the second one since the day it came out, and then the third one since the day it came out.
This is my FAVORITE video game at present. Yes, I like it much better than Call of Duty games (although I like those too).
This console is so hot... my friends are jealous. I'm 30 years old and still I thought it was a must have. The game alone goes for $50, the controllers are probably $50-60/each (when compared to a normal wireless for say $40/each - you get the added design), the 320gig drive is over $100, and the console without the extras is $200.
Add it all up and the price makes sense, except I got it on sale at newegg for much less. :)
I LOVE how I hear the Gears of War sounds when I push the power/eject buttons. :)
Come join me on Gears!!
