Transcend TS-RDF8K USB 3.0 Support SDHC/SDXC/UDMA6/UDMA7 CF and MSXC, with CF, SD, and Micro Slot Flash Card Reader - White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: price

Cons: won't read cf cards on mac. it corrupted the pictures it tried to copy. good thing it's so slow ( estimated 11 hours for 8 gb's of pics ) otherwise the whole batch would of been wasted. rebooted, tried several different usb3.0 ports on a brand new iMac. plugged in old dynes usb 2.0 card reader and copied them in a few minutes.

3 out of 5 eggs wd tv live 11/28/2010

This review is from: D-Link DGS-2208 Unmanaged 8-Port Desktop Green Ethernet Switch

Pros: works fine for everything but my wd tv live box. gigabit speeds i get sustained 60-80 mB/s throughput copying large multigig files from whs to w7 and reverse.

Cons: this took me 3 months to figure out, but it doesn't work with my wd tv live box any longer for 1080p movies. they stutter after a few minutes. what's weird is it worked for the first 6 months fine. i replaced EVERYTHING, the wd live box, ran new cat5e wire, tried different servers. it doesn't make sense, since i can get 60-80 mB/s sustained on gigabit, but i can't keep a steady 100 megabit stream between it and the wdlive box. i took the gigabit switch out of the loop and used a 2wire uverse 100 mbit router to connect the server & wdlive box and there are no hiccups/stuttering.

just weird and a pita.

ZOTAC IONITX-A-U Atom 330 1.6GHz Dual-Core NVIDIA ION Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: right price and more than enough cpu for a whs build. i get 65-80mB/s sustained through gigabit from it with a samsung eco drive. never seen cpu hit 100% even when sabnzbd is rebuilding blurays.

runs cool with the stock fan (which is decently quiet) sitting on top of the heatsink, idles @ 38° C

very nice assortment of hardware for the price..

Cons: no way to screw fan to heatsink.

ran with an open chassis and no fan, and temps reached 85° C within 30 minutes.

only two sata ports are ahci. i guess the third one was meant for an optical. there is no way to expand with more drives internally. i had originally hoped to expand up to 5 or 6 drives, but it's not going to happen with this board. the mini pci-e slot that is advertised is taken, and they don't sell mini pci-e sata controllers anyways. this is my biggest dissapointment and the reason why i'll probably end up using this mobo for a htpc and buy the zotac G-E model for my server instead.
