This review is from: LEXMARK MS310dn Workgroup Up to 35 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
Pros: This is the follow on model to the Lexmark e260dn and have it set up as my home office printer and services my families Mac, Windows, and Ubuntu computers. A few observations: Fast startup when going from hibernation (low power) mode to print. Duplex mode is fast as well. No paper jams and easy setup.
Cons: The printer is slightly noisier than the e260dn, but not by much. Like most laser printers, the refills are almost half the cost of the printer, though I have had great success on third part refills.
Other Thoughts: A previous user complained about getting the printer set up with a static IP address for use as a network printer. It's easy: After plugging the printer in, and hooking up the network cable, the printer will print a test page which will contain the IP address that it got from your network. Go to your computer (which is connected to the same network) and access the printer using the IP address the printer printed. There you can configure the Static IP address and other administrative functions. You can set an admin password for the printer as well. Remember, after you set the static ip address, you'll need to use that new address to access the printers admin page.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Nice layout, excellent manual, the BIOS configuration is straight forward to use and nicely laid out.
Cons: After running for about a month, the board suddenly stopped working. No video output, reset button wouldn't work, keyboard failed to light. I thought I was looking at an RMA for a bad board. On a whim, I decided to reset the CMOS jumper and that cleared the problem. I have no idea why it happened since the configuration had been running unchanged for almost a month.
Other Thoughts: Currently have Windows 8 installed (not by choice).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Using this in a software RAID 1 configuration with Linux. Going strong after a month, so no problems.
Cons: None, though I look forward to hard drive prices falling in line to where they were a couple of years ago.READ FULL REVIEW
