Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Overall-decent 12/10/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Home Server 2011 64-bit - OEM

Pros: Nice 64-bit upgrade to WHS V1. I do miss drive extender but have found reasonable alternatives that do provide RAID security. Updated look and feel but essential hands-off backups still there and still easy to setup.

Cons: Had a horrid time loading onto my headless EX495. From an internet search, I'm not alone. Why didn't MS foresee the many headless installations with 64-bit machines they wanted to upgrade?

Other Thoughts: Again, the installed base of WHS V1, especially those with headless machines who wanted to update to a 64-bit system, would seem to be a logical market for WHS2011. Although there were several answer file generators available, a script available as a download from MS for a specific server model would have been appropriate.

BELKIN F1DD104L SOHO DVI & USB  KVM Switch
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Followup to previous post 04/02/2013

This review is from: BELKIN F1DD104L SOHO DVI & USB KVM Switch

Pros: Great concept with DVI, USB and included cables.

Cons: See my previous review. Reliability and support. Went back and forth with Belkin tech support after unit video died. They finally gave up and pushed me up to a supervisor promising a call BEFORE Christmas. Over four months later that supervisor call has never come.

Other Thoughts: Sadly, another company I once relied on very much for their innovative products and their reliability and support, has apparently gone awol. My new router will also be another brand.

2 out of 5 eggs F1DD104L 11/26/2012

This review is from: BELKIN F1DD104L SOHO DVI & USB KVM Switch

Pros: Great price, USB powered available, great cables included, large computer switching buttons, DVI support for my 1600x1040 monitor.

Cons: Worked great for well over a year. Disconnected to relocate computer desk and now the video to the monitor is dead. Connected both computers direct to monitor to confirm that both video cards and monitor work correctly. Tried cold boots and reconnection according to Belkin instructions but still no video. Even tried putting video cards back to 640x480 to see if that low res will get through but no luck.

Other Thoughts: Checked web and see that no video to the monitor seems to be common failure, but there seems to be no response from Belkin. Disappointing from such a well-established company. Can't recommend this very reasonably priced and
