EnGenius EAP350 Extra-long Range Wireless-N and Gigabit AP/WDS/Repeater
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Reliable, Low-Maintenance 01/26/2014

This review is from: EnGenius EAP350 Extra-long Range Wireless-N and Gigabit AP/WDS/Repeater

Pros: Set-it and forget-it; no problems, zero dropouts (so far).

Cons: A little weird to install.

Other Thoughts: I used three of these to provide wireless connectivity in 40,000 sqft warehouse. Once wired and setup, I haven't had any problems -- the warehouse operates smoothly without any dropouts.

ORICO H4999-U3 -SV Aluminum 4 Ports Super Speed USB3.0 HUB with 12V2A Power Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, independently-powered, small desktop footprint.

Cons: Short USB cord.

Other Thoughts: Other than an exceptionally-short USB cable, this item is great. It's small, fast, and gets the job done reliably.

SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRL-3F-O ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Good Specs; Builders Beware 01/13/2013

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X9DRL-3F-O ATX Server Motherboard Dual LGA 2011 DDR3 1600

Pros: Lots of good specs on paper; price is right. Getting a dual LGA-2011 board onto an ATX form factor is the main reason I bought this board.

Cons: There are two reasons I gave it 3-eggs instead of 5.

(1) Of the 8 mounting holes, 3 are located where you (including Antec, Corsair, and Cooler Master) don't expect them. To mount this in typical enthusiast ATX cases, you'll have to use nylon stand-off's which gives the middle of the board more ability to flex than I'd like.

(2) The two CPU sockets are placed so closely together that there is no room for the fan on the stock SuperMicro heatsink / fan (SNK-P0050AP4). This means you'll have to run one CPU with a fan and one without.

Other Thoughts: If you're putting this in a 2U rack-mount case using a low-profile (fanless) heatsink, this is a top-notch board. If you're putting this in a pedestal ATX case to run a meaty Hyper-V server next to your desk, you may want to consider something else. As an alternative, the ASUS Z9PA-D8 looks like it has more-standard mounting holes, but still suffers from sockets being too close together.
