ASUS ROG PCI-E 240GB PCIe 2.0 x 2 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RAIDR Express
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good speed easily exceeds dual 6G SSD's in RAID0. Additional RAM drive is cool for disposable cache files.

Cons: My ASUS Motherboard doesn't support the RAIDR in UEFI mode, which seems stupid. Not the RAIDR's fault, but you think ASUS would be smarter.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if the included software could do things like report the status of the auto-trim and what-not.

ASUS ROG PCI-E 240GB PCIe 2.0 x 2 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RAIDR Express
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Works as advertised and is very fast. It was very smart of them to put in a UEFI/Legacy switch.

Cons: No complaints.

Other Thoughts: Nothing is wrong with this device itself, but my ASUS M5A97 motherboard that has UEFI and supports UEFI booting will not show this SSD as a UEFI device. I even tried the latest firmware for the motherboard. I'm a little disappointed in ASUS' left-hand not working with its right-hand.

D-Link DSM-380 Boxee Box HD Media Player
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Better than XBox/PS3/MCE 10/21/2012

This review is from: D-Link DSM-380 Boxee Box HD Media Player

Pros: Plays 1080p MKV's from personal BD collection. Plays everything I've thrown at it including the goofy BBC interlaced VC1's. Based on XBMC which is a plus. Unit is small. RF remote is nice and work from any orientation. Screensaver easily changed with SD card. Has Netflix which works well. Comes with HDMI cable.

Cons: Not exactly intuitive, takes getting used to. Applications are populated with a lot of stuff I didn't want and had to remove them one at a time. Doesn't have Hulu. Integrated browser isn't very useful. Can't skip ads in YouTube videos. Remote runs on a watch battery (included).

Other Thoughts: 1080p material only plays perfectly on a wired connection and only via UPNP (I run from a Synology). Otherwise the playback will buffer a lot on SMB, NFS. The unit has a light-up Boxee logo on the side that dims during playback.
