This review is from: AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 6-Core 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
Pros: No issues with Ubuntu 12.04 and 8 G of ram. Great CPU at a very resonable price. I did not purchase at NewEgg, as the retailer had it on sale for $120 and then included a motherboard. I built a system, using mostly New Egg purchased components around this chip for under $250. Very fast and reliable.
Cons: None - a six core processor with 8 gigabytes of ram for about $100. I can't see how anyone would have a con with that deal.
Other Thoughts: I have not overclocked it as I have no reason to so so. Just fast, reliable and very inexpensive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I received this router as a gift two months ago. Was doubtful as the price was low. Set it up and it worked. My Roku is 75 feet away through 4 walls and when streaming video is HD - I consistently receive HD signals, wirelessly. Before it was hit and miss. The router has not been off since. Never required a reboot. Simple set up.
I use Ubuntu 12.04, Windows7, Roku, wireless blue ray and Obi 100 - no issues
I use Ubuntu 12.04, Windows 7, blue ray wireless, and Roku. All work great.
Cons: None - maybe the price is too low and that could keep people from considering this router.
Other Thoughts: For a home wireless system, there is no need to purchase a more expensive wireless router. Any concern about a warranty is to me academic, as how much would you spend to return a $20 item?
My son purchases wireless routers for employees. He is a fan of TP-LINK routers and now that is the only brand he buys as none have failed. The best bang for the buck by a wide margin.
This review is from: Analog to Digital Optical Audio Cable Converter Adapter
Pros: I use the digital cable (orange plug) from a TV to the converter and then the RCA to the CD input plugs on an old amp. The TV is also connected to a foxcomm computer. I am able to stream Pandora and streaming radio to my old system. I am using Ubuntu 12.04.
Cons: Might be not be a con and it is not for me, but when the TV mode is selected all I get from my old system is a low hum. But I have not tried other combinations as my desire is to listen to music from Pandora and streaming radio.
Other Thoughts: I am new to the new audio so I made this purchase on the fly. It works well - but the world has changed and audio is more complex - we could use some help trying to understand the new digital audio connections.READ FULL REVIEW
