Pros: Added USB ports and card slots. Can also connect hard drives.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: Useful if you need more USB ports on the front of your case. The card readers are also useful as I don't have to go looking for my USB card reader.

SUPERMICRO MBD-H8DCL-6F-O ATX Server Motherboard Dual Socket C32 AMD SR5690 DDR3 1600/1333/1066

Pros: Integrated LSI SAS2008 controller, which can easily be flashed with the IT firmware. Very useful when running FreeNAS as the OS should have direct access to the disks. This board offers plenty of room for upgrades as they are needed.

Cons: None that I can think of. This build runs 24/7 without issue.

Other Thoughts: Did a lot of research to find the right server board for my FreeNAS build. I only populated one CPU socket. Don't really need the second with FreeNAS but the option to add another is useful in case I plan to run additional plugins that are more demanding. Currently have two 16 GB sticks of registered ECC for 32 GB total. Having the ability to add 6 more sticks will be useful as I upgrade the ZFS array in the future.

5 out of 5 eggs Small and fast 05/12/2014

This review is from: Team Group PD200 128GB 1.8" USB 3.0 Portable Solid State Drive

Pros: Small and fast. I get great transfer speeds over USB 3.0 and have seen it go above advertised speeds.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I picked this up on sale for about $90. Got it for a project that didn't quite work out. Used it at work a few times to do some Clonezilla images and it performed noticeably faster than the mechanical USB 3.0 drive I had. It would make a great Linux Live boot disk for systems that can boot from USB 3.0.
