Tesoro TS-G7SFL-RD Excalibur Spectrum Switch Single Key Full Color RGB Backlit Illuminated Mechanical Gaming Keyboard - Red
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Only had it a day. Seems nice so far. I bought the blue switches expecting klickety-klack, and I got klickety-clack.

Cons: Wouldn't work out of the box with my KVM switch.

Other Thoughts: I'm writing this to explain how I got this keyboard to work with my KVM switch. When I first plugged the keyboard into the USB on the KVM switch, it wouldn't even light up. I think it wants to draw more power than the KVM wants to supply.

I had a spare powered USB hub lying around, so I plugged the keyboard into that, and the hub into the KVM switch. Bingo. That did it.

Next challenge: Worked on Windows, not on linux (the reason for the KVM switch). I found that hitting the Fn Pause [G/PC] key combo cleared that up.

Now works on Windows and linux, through the KVM switch. Yay.

RAVPower  External Wireless Mobile File Transfer WiFi Disk & 3000mAh Power Bank for Tablet PC & Smartphones
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Can act as file server on your existing WiFi network.

Accessible from Windows and linux

Minuscule power use, so can be left on

Cons: Documentation is not very good. Prepare to tinker if you want to do anything interesting.

Other Thoughts: It wants to be the Wifi hotspot, with your desktops using it to reach the Internet (it connects to your in-house WiFi). But you don't have to do it that way. The GUI tells you what IP address it got assigned by your router, so you can put this in your linux fstab to mount it:
// /mnt/wifidisk cifs username=admin,password=hex_digit_wifi_key

In Windows you map a drive letter to the same place:
\\192.168.1.X\SDCard_Volume1 using same user & password

You can ssh into this thing, it runs linux

EVGA GeForce 9500 GT DirectX 10 512-P3-N954-TR 512MB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Fedora recognized it instantly. Zero driver issues.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Used this to replace a 'motherboard integrated' NVIDIA chip that had "issues" with linux... kept crashing the X-server. Haven't had that since I installed this card.
