This review is from: MSI 890GXM-G65 AM3 AMD 890GX 5 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: It worked. Was somewhat a good looking board.
Cons: More fan headers please. For what you pay 2 seems a little cheap.
Other Thoughts: I was building a new VMware ESXi whitebox for server development and I wanted to go as compact as possible and still accommodate both a PCIe multiport network controller card and a PCIe Perc 5i raid controller. With the exception of having to blank out two pins on the perc card (known smbus error) it has worked well so far.
Wanted to go with a microatx board to get the size down and put in a microatx tower with a 2.5" hot swap drive bay. Want my ESXi solution to be more portable (micro atx cases with carry handles).
This review is from: CISCO ASA5510-SEC-BUN-K9 ASA 5510 SSM Security Appliance
Pros: It just works reliably
Smartnet Contracts. Some would consider this a minus but they will assist with any configuration issues you may have and they ship quickly. I have never regretted money on a smartnet contract.
Cons: Not cheap
Cisco CLI is not for the faint of heart.
Other Thoughts: I've worked with a lot of servers and network equipment. One thing I always look for is something that just keeps on doing its job reliably. This thing has fallen into that category. For three years it ran 43 remote office tunnels and countless remote access sessions and never suffered from performance issues. The only time it has been down is when I've upgraded the IOS.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: RAZER Naga Massively Multiplayer Online Gaming Mouse
Pros: bunch of buttons that could be really useful. blue light matched case and n52.
Cons: I am an average sized adult with average sized hands. Wanted to get that out of the way before I continue.
I have to have some pressure on the mouse to move it. Usually this is my palm resting on the mouse. I also have to pick the mouse up and move it occasionally which is usually accomplished with my thumb and pinky finger.
If I try to rest my palm on it my finger tips extend out past the index/middle finger buttons and this makes the buttons click too easily (read, misclicks). This also makes it hard for me click the twelve buttons on the side because if I rest my palm on it my thumb is too far forward.
K, can't rest the palm on it. Next.. So now I move my palm back (dead air) and the mouse is being moved and controlled by my finger tips. This lead to numerous problems. Bottom line was it was too small for me.
Oh, those two buttons off to the left of the index finger. TOTALLY useless. The majority of people will have to lift their hand off of the mouse to click them.
Other Thoughts: I'm wandering if this was an adaptation of an autocad mouse or similar. It is just too small to be of any use. If you haven't reached adulthood yet or are diminutive then this mouse may be for you. Unfortunately I bought two because I buy one for my main computer and another for my backup computer. Both useless to me. I just ordered the Logitech gaming mouse. I love my old Logitech gaming mouse but I need a few more buttons for Wow.READ FULL REVIEW
