5 out of 5 eggs Fresh Egg McMuffins! 01/16/2015

This review is from: Hamilton Beach 25475 Gray Breakfast Sandwich Maker

Pros: Couldn't be easier to use. Fresh ingredients yielded a breakfast sandwich that tasted exactly like a Egg McMuffin without having to visit the local drivethrough.

Cons: Clean up is easy, but the top and bottom plates aren't dishwasher safe. Cheese or egg can leak out if you're not careful.

5 out of 5 eggs Works well for live stage in rack 03/09/2014

This review is from: iStarUSA D-213-MATX Black Metal/ Aluminum 2U Rackmount microATX Server Chassis

Pros: I'm using this in a different way than most people - I built a VST player/MIDI module (essentially a clone of a MUSE Receptor) using this as the foundation for a 2U rackmount case.

I combined this with a mATX board, a 4x20 LCD display in the external bay, and a SSD (given the potential for vibration). For my purposes, having the small power button on the front is perfect, and the bright light isn't a factor.

Also, given this is part of a 12U rack, I didn't need something made of extremely thick steel so the weight was perfect as well.

Didn't cut my fingers on anything, which is always a bonus after 25+ years of building PCs.

I'm using an EarthWatts PSU which vents to the rear but it's nice to have the vents cut out on the lid as well.

Cons: Nothing significant for my purpose.

This case is good if you want to build something and keep it that way, but I'm not sure it's durable enough to do it multiple times.

The HD bracket screws close to the case edge are tricky to remove and put back in.

Intel Core i3-3240 Ivy Bridge Dual-Core 3.4GHz LGA 1155 55W BX80637i33240 Desktop Processor                                                                                   Intel HD Graphics 2500

Pros: Good clock speed for an i3, hyper threading

Cons: None so far from a performance perspective. As always, the provided CPU fan is sufficient but not exceptional.

Other Thoughts: I needed to build a 2U rack mount virtual instrument player (i.e. VSTs). I wanted to have something relatively low power, be at least dual core and didn't want to spend much more than $100. On sale this CPU fit the bill and I highly recommend it.
