4 out of 5 eggs Solid Board 04/19/2010

This review is from: ASRock K10N78 AM2+/AM2 NVIDIA GeForce 8200 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Lots of SATA ports. Good layout. ASRock's boards are pretty well thought-out.

Cons: One Egg Off: Watch out for the Power LED (PLED+/-) connections on the System Header if you have an older case like I do (Antec Solution). Some older cases have a three-pin connector for PLED, while the motherboard has two pins (#2 and 4) for PLED. So my power LED is inop, but the hard drive LED works.

Other Thoughts: Tested on Kubuntu 9.10 with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Windsor, 4 GB RAM, and an MSI GeForce 9400, which is a little bit of overkill for a Linux box, but what the heck.

Pros: After 2 years, still nice and crisp printing. Even with our usage (2 high schoolers), still on 1st cartridge. No maintenance, other than the occasional toner cartridge shake.

Cons: For some reason, the feed malfunctions from time to time, and you have to reduce the amount of paper in the tray; THEN it will begin feeding. Might have something to do with cleaning rollers, which I haven't done. I really should read the manual for maintenance.

Other Thoughts: Paper still curls, but higher quality paper tends to reduce that. It does draw a lot of power on startup. I know this because my APC backup chirps, warning of low available current when the printer fires up. After it gets going, it settles down. Built-in print server found by Linux Kubuntu 7.10 and 8.04, as well as by PCLINUX2007.

4 out of 5 eggs Operating Experience: Over 1 Year 07/27/2008

This review is from: Hanns-G JW-199DPB Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 700:1 Built-in Speakers

Pros: After over 1 year of operation, no dead or stuck pixels on 4 out of 5 units purchased. One unit has one stuck pixel (stuck on red), but it's inocuous enough for me to ignore it. Brightness is still very good, as is contrast control. I'd buy it again.

Cons: My only complaint is the difficulty in removing the base and stand, to facilitate VESA mounting. After nervously removing the two screws in the lower back, it became obvious that I probably would damage the interference fit joint between the stand and the tilt stand. I decided to back out and leave things be.

Other Thoughts: I have run these monitors with Kubuntu Gutsy Gibbon and Windows XP. They also work very well with Solaris 10.
