This review is from: Cisco Small Business 100 Series SG100D-05-NA Unmanaged 5-Port Desktop Gigabit Switch
Pros: A simple and small desktop switch with true 1GBE throughput. Being physically small it's easy to place anywhere and no fan means it's quiet.
Cons: A little more expensive than the competition, but I figure you get what you pay for. I bought this to replace a competitor's switch that failed after a little over a year.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Intel S1200BTS Micro ATX Server Motherboard LGA 1155 Intel C202 DDR3 1333/1066
Pros: Easy to install and well laid out.
Cons: Ivy Bridge CPU's are only supported on version 352 or later. Newegg CON NOT guarentee a particular version. They were gracious enough to understand and allow me to RMW w/o the 15%. Get the standard Sandy Bridge to be sure it will work.
Other Thoughts: Why Intel didn't just make a new part number to keep this from happening is misitfying. It's bad enough when CPU type needs a BIOS update befor eit works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The cards are pretty fast. If I have a slow game performance, the bottleneck is elsewhere.
Cons: The design is poor. The cards sit squarely against anything next to them so they frequently overheat and shut the PC down in mid-game. The plastic bezel is an affectation that exacerbates the problem tenfold. That cards don't come with the CrossFire cable eventhough it says such on the box. Sometime the computer boots without a display. The cards seem to not detect which port the monitor is plugged into.
Other Thoughts: Get a different brand. The chipset is great, but this particular card is to be avoided.READ FULL REVIEW
