Archgon Sphere II MH-2231-U3 USB 3.0 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs No-Frills, No-Gimmicks, No-Dissappointment 11/25/2014

This review is from: Archgon Sphere II MH-2231-U3 USB 3.0 2.5" External HDD Enclosure

Pros: - Sturdy Enclosure
- Well-Insulated Cable
- USB 3.0
- Black, Anodized, Brushed Finish

Cons: - Short Cable (approx 1 US foot by my eye's guess)
- Requires #1 Phillips Screwdriver
- Plastic Tray Insulates HDD from Aluminum Shell

Other Thoughts: Pros and Cons are listed for those that might have a different opinion of what they want in an enclosure than my own. I gave this item 5 eggs because it is the ideal case for me. I like that it doesn't come apart without tools, that the cord doesn't get tangled up etc. This case is simple, no-frills, high-quality.

Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11-U Intel Atom D510 NM10 Chipset 1 x 200Pin Next-Gen NVIDIA ION GPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, Current, Chick

Cons: No internal expansion slots

Other Thoughts: To the last reviewer: the problem you have described sounds like what I went through when I first powered up my unit. As it turns out, I had added a 4GB memory module, not on the list of tested 2GB modules at the time. However, before you RMA a perfectly good unit, chat with one of the live tech at Zotac. They can step you through the process to update your BIOS, which will add support for 4Gb memory modules.

Zotac ZBOX HD-ID11-U Intel Atom D510 NM10 Chipset 1 x 200Pin Next-Gen NVIDIA ION GPU Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: small form factor, mounting options, versatility, style

Cons: Documentation! The manual is near useless. For a DIY box, the manufacturer leaves a lot up to the consumer to figure out. I feel bad for the Zotac's live techs. I was hoping to find more information on their website or on the CD that shipped with the unit. The manual, as useless as it is, is missing from the CD entirely.

Other Thoughts: The product is sold with both AMI and Award BIOS. I got AMI; how unlucky am I? Both BIOS use the "Delete" key during POST, when the computer is first powered up, to enter the BIOS settings. The max "tested" RAM is 2Gb, found that out the hard way, as the RAM I purchased for this unit, 4Gb, would not boot. Luckily, I had some spare modules. The wireless adapter, made by AzureWave, is not certified by the Wi-Fi alliance, but claims compliance to 802.11n Draft 2.0. It works well enough. I am not sure if it is a card or a chip, as it is on the other side of the motherboard. One cannot remove the motherboard from the case, without voiding the warranty.
