Xblue XB4707-10 X-50 Bundle-7 Phones
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Truly Plug and Play - the best All-In-One system for a first-time installer. 04/26/2015

This review is from: Xblue XB4707-10 X-50 Bundle-7 Phones

Pros: 1) Bundle has every single thing you need to set it up including cables, no additional parts required.

2) Voice quality and volume is excellent.

3) Primary features like rollover hunting and music on hold are already enabled right out of the box.

4) 6-CO line capacity
5) This is by far the easiest phone system out there to install, period.

Cons: No issues encountered so far.

Other Thoughts: My setup is with an SMCFS1601P 16-port PoE switch so I did not need to use the included 8-port switch for the included power adapters for the phones. I mounted and powered up the X50 server, connected its LAN port to the PoE switch, connected the phones to the PoE switch, connected the CO lines and nothing else was required to get basic service up and running.

For security reasons I changed the default registration info for the phones and I have this on its own dedicated subnet. I connected its WAN port to the PC Network LAN only so I could setup and use the remote extension feature at the business owner's residence. FYI correct port forwarding settings are required for the remote extension feature or you can DMZ it at your main router.

I also have it connected to a DoorBell Fon Door Phone and a door strike controller.
I would use it as my primary network router if it had GbE and 5GHz WiFi n support.

SMC SMCFS1601P NA Unmanaged 16 Port Switch with 16 PoE
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great switch - PoE on all 16 ports 03/28/2015

This review is from: SMC SMCFS1601P NA Unmanaged 16 Port Switch with 16 PoE

Pros: 1) BIGGEST PLUS - PoE on all 16 ports!
2) Unmanaged - plug and play - easy to setup
3) 2 small fans are not loud
4) Works as intended powering some IP phones
5) Great Price (got it for $160.00)
6) 200 Watts total power budget

Cons: Nothing to report so far.

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts
It is a great switch. I am quite surprised that no one has bought (or reviewed) this switch. I have it powering 6 IP phones and it works like a champ. I have had an SMC barricade router for 3 years that worked without issue - I only swapped it because it never had 5GHz support but SMC products have always been good me. The only thing to watch out for is if you you are rack-mounting it like I did, the screws for the rack-mount brackets are very tiny and could easily get lost.

hec Black 0.7mm Thickness SECC (Japanese Steel Metal) ITX ITX200B Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Perfect Case for HTPC - it has SSD mount points. 01/05/2015

This review is from: hec Black 0.7mm Thickness SECC (Japanese Steel Metal) ITX ITX200B Mini ITX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: 1)Comes with the Mini SATA power / data cable and mounting screws required for the ODD.

(2) Nice layout, sturdy construction, it's the perfect form factor for an HTPC

(3) It has mount points for 2.5" SSD/HDD

(4) Considering its size, relatively easy to work with.

Cons: Quite minor, since I know this before purchasing, but there is no expansion bay to allow you to use your PCIe slot on the MITX board.

Other Thoughts: Parts list:
This case, MSI AM1I MoBo, Athlon 5350 AM1, 64GB SSD, 1 x 4GB Team Elite DDR3 1333 RAM, LG CT40N BDROM notebook ODD and NAVI Bluetooth (candy-bar) Keyboard (should have used RF so i can get to BIOS but ah well...).

I am running Windows 10 TP on this unit and it is as smooth as butter.

Contrary to other reviews, it HAS SSD mounts - no brackets required. The SSD mounts cross-wise on the underside of the DVD tray (with the 4 screw holes under the SSD), so that the power/SATA connectors are just aft of the front panel USB ports. It mounts perfectly with the right screws so it does not interfere with the ODD operation.

The case also comes with the very fine screws required to mount the ODD; I only needed to use 3 of them and there is no vibration during DVD/BD playback.
