JetWay JNF9HG-2930 Intel Celeron N2930 SoC, 1.83GHz - 2.16GHz Burst, Quad-Core, 7.5W TDP/4.5W SDP Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low power, 4 NIC, Quad core, Fanless and runs cool. I use the same power supply that is used to run those 5m LED strips. Works great with 12v 2A.

Cons: Not Centos 7 compatible. It is a kernel issue and likely to be resolved with future releases. Works well with Windows 10 and Hyper-v. Is not VMWare 6.0 compatible (presumably for a similar reason as Centos 7). Vmware Kernel will not complete load. Older and newer Linux kernels seem to boot ok. Basically, beware that your distro of choice may be tricky. Wish it could take more than 8G of ram.

Other Thoughts: Upping my egg rating for this item. The Windows 10 crashing was not related to the motherboard but due to a bad HyperV switch configuration. It still has issues with Centos 7, but I suspect that when Centos 7.1 rolls around, the issue will be corrected. A bios update for the board might also be a magic fix too.
If you are looking for a low power system build where multiple NIC's are desired I recommend this item. NOT for Vmware though. Windows 10 works great.

JetWay JNF9HG-2930 Intel Celeron N2930 SoC, 1.83GHz - 2.16GHz Burst, Quad-Core, 7.5W TDP/4.5W SDP Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It has very nice performance for such a low power board. If it weren't for the cons, it'd be quite fantastic.

Cons: Not Centos 7 compatible. It is a kernel issue and likely to be resolved with future releases. Works well with Windows 10 and Hyper-v. Is not VMWare 6.0 compatible (presumably for a similar reason as Centos 7). Vmware Kernel will not complete load.

My unit likes to crash randomly with no entry in the Win10 event log.

Other Thoughts: I really want to like this unit. It was intended to be a lightweight VMWare based firewall with a couple of support VM's. Sadly, the kernel never completes its load. The same is true with Centos 7. However, moving the SSD to another system and upgrading the Centos stock kernel to a newer release fixed this upon moving back to the Jetway and the system would then boot.

Windows 10 loaded great. So did Hyper-v. While I'd have preferred VMWare, Win10 seemed a good solution. In a VM under win10, Centos loaded fine.

Instability: The board just locks up with the network lights blinking on and off (as in a steady off and on, not an activity blink). I'm not entirely sure what to make of this. Is it a defective board? Is it a bug in Win-10? A bug in the firmware? My gut feeling is that it is a bug with the Win10 drivers or networking, though I'd have thought a crash would be logged. Maybe I have a defective unit.

If it weren't for the crashing, I'd give this 5 eggs and a rave review. I'd definitely be curious to know if others have had issues.

RAZER Naga USB MMO Gaming Mouse - Right-Handed Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lots of buttons.

Cons: Expensive. Buttons are difficult to differentiate. I tried hard to make this mouse work but now it is on the shelf. Razor software requires a login to their cloud service. I say no. It's just a mouse and I shouldn't have to log in to use it. That's just dumb. I'll avoid Razor products because of that. I'm sick and tired of every little program wanting me to log in. You're not that important RAZOR.

Other Thoughts: You might like the mouse. It does enter a 1 - 9 like your keyboard would. But, unless you're playing a game that you need to push buttons for, it kind of sucks because it's big and bulky and kind of unwieldy.
