Pros: Very fast USB 3 transfer
Easy to navigate bios
Good board layout
Cons: No DVI or HDMI output on two separate boards. I updated both boards to the latest 1002 firmware, using the latest AMD chipset drivers from the Asus website, and using the AMD Beta graphics drivers for Kaveri. I could not get any output from the dvi or hdmi on either board that I had. No POST screens, no BIOS screens and no Windows. VGA works fine. This is the first (and second) time I have received a bad ASUS product.
Other Thoughts: System is using Kaveri A10-7850k at stock speeds and 2x4gb of G.Skill DDR3 2133. I have tried every troubleshooting step I can think of from different monitors, different cables, using one stick of ram, GPU Boost on, GPU Boost off, clearing the CMOS (multiple times) and nothing gets any output from dvi or hdmi.
The board works fine with a dedicated graphics card, but that's not the point of the system. I am not looking forward to another return....
This review is from: AVS Gear HA-IR01SV Infrared Certified MCE VISTA Remote Control
Pros: No configuration needed.
Cons: Couldn't just buy the ir received
Other Thoughts: Bought two of these to use with XBMC on Windows and my Logitech Harmony One remotes. They were plug and play with Windows and XBMC. No configuration needed!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Storage space, low temps, quiet, good speeds (~90MB/s for newtork read/writes)
Cons: Little tricky to get working with WHS v1 since it is an advanced format drive (4k sectors), but completely doable and works like a charm.
Other Thoughts: I have three in my WHS v1 box. They have been rock solid for 3 months now without a single problem. Google around for how to get advanced format drives working in whs v1 before installing them.READ FULL REVIEW
