Pros: RJ45 protection
Cons: big spikes still destroy things. these protective devices all need to be replaced after a few years too... though none of them say so!
Other Thoughts: To clear up mis-information, there is *nothing* on this planet which will protect your equipment from a direct strike short of physically unplugging it. I know, it just happened to me lol.
That said, these things work to moderate spikes in voltage which damage equipment. Whether from your refrigerator kicking on or a lightning strike down the street, they can help protect your stuff. But it also depends on how powerful the surge is... and where it originates.
Big plus on RJ45 protection. I lost anything with an ethernet port-- destroyed all ports-- whether something was turned on or not. wish I had had something like this protecting the network from the street-side and from where my 200' run from the garage comes into the house!!!!
This review is from: Intel EXPI9301CT Desktop Adapter Gigabit CT 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
Pros: An Intel card and cheap.
Cons: Does NOT work with WHS2011, no matter what board you have (Gigabyte). You (newegg) should list supported OS's, as it would appear by all comments (and by common sense) that this card would work with just about anything :(READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NComputing L130 Virtual Thin Client System for Windows and Linux VDI Solution
Pros: PC performance to match your fastest PC you own, at a fraction of the cost. Great for casual web surfing, or working with word processing/spreadsheet apps. Perfect for guest rooms or kids rooms.
Cons: Extremely fussy to set up. Server software obliterates normal XP login and replaces with different login on server. No USB ports on L130 unit (the other reviewer obviously was reviewing the L230 or L300 as he was mentioning USB ports). Resolution-- it says it supports larger than 800x600, and other resolutions are listed... but NONE work on my LCD which does support higher resolution. For home use, netflix and other streaming services do NOT allow you to access through any thin clients (as thin clients utilize RDC - remote terminal connection - to access the main server PC).... this is a huge bummer, as there ARE limitations to these things and you CANNOT do everything on them that you can do on your PC!!!!!! Better off purchasing a netbook-- they are pretty much the same price range as the L300 anyway...READ FULL REVIEW
