This review is from: Team 8GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 Laptop Memory Model TSD38192M1333C9-E
Pros: Needed ram for a cheap NAS box I built. 8gb working great with Windows Server 2012 R2 and running XPEnology with it. I haven't done any ramtest or anything but so far system is super stable. I'd get another set if I ever needed 16gb.
Cons: None so far, will update if finding faults.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Small size - ITX. It's about the size of two shoe boxes stack up together.
Fits 6x 3.5" drives (traditional mounting holes of the BOTTOM - won't work with Seagate 6TB drives unless you're willing to just DUCT TAPE it on).
QUIET - 3 case fans, there's a switch on the outside of the case for you to set to L/M/H.
Accepts traditional ATX PSU(easy for replacement/upgrades)
has 2 PCI-E slot covers if your mobo supports it. Mine only had one.
Front panel cover can be taken off, you can hide an SSD in there if you're savvy with wiring.
Overall - Love the small size especially able to fit 6 drives.
Cons: 1) ALL screws did not screw easily. It's as if the threads are slightly mal-aligned. I had to use screw driver for the thumbscrews! The mobo mounting screws were right under the support beam so if you have a long screw driver, you might not be able to screw them straight down(also thread has issues). Same is true of the hard-drive mount cage removal/install to the case itself. I had to force a couple of screws in.
2) Hard-drive mounting brackets - Using traditional mounting points but these were the mounting points of the bottom of the harddrive(typically most cases mount by the side mounting points) Since I have Seagate 6tb drives (the cheap ones), I could only mount one set of screws, leaving the head/tail hanging. My solution was to adhere a piece of TAPE around the drive to the bracket.
Another cool trick is you can try mounting SSD's anywhere... on top of PSU, within the front panel, or even on the external side of the mounting cages, I currently am doing this for one of my SSDs... hard to get to the screws though so be gentle.
3) GPU space - I do not have a dedi graphics card but if I had to place one... I wouldn't be able to fit anything given the mobo's closeness to the PSU. If you plan on dedi-gpu, plan on getting a modular PSU that has plugs all on one side(not spread out through the panel) to give yourself as much space as possible. Many people can fit a GTX 970 in there, but they have to use modular PSU. Google for pics.
with all the above neg, I only took away one egg.
Other Thoughts: tldr; Small, fits 6x 3.5" drives, very quiet, takes traditional ATX PSU and traditional PCI-E card heights. Be careful with the screws, they don't thread easily and might take a couple of hard screw driver turns to tighten. Modular PSU if going dedi GPUREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PQI U822V 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6822-032GR3XXX
Pros: When it worked for the past 1.5 years, it was pretty good. It was fast, and held data. The write speed is not as fast as I'd like it to be but whatever.
Cons: After using it for about 1.5 years, the flash drive died on me today. Unable to be recognized by 3 different computers(BIOS) and even the SamsungTV cannot recognize it.
Trying to contact PQI Support since this item does have a lifetime warranty...
