G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9S-4GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've got six of these in my home lab, it works well holds up and is generally great. I started having BSOD's and yup, it turned out to be a bad stick, I contacted G.Skill for an RMA and it was as easy as sending it back and they had me a new stick of memory in no time. VERY happy with the product and the support from the manufacturer.

Cons: I cannot think of any.

SIIG JU-DK0111-S1 USB 3.0 Dual Head Docking Station

5 out of 5 eggs Nice, once you get it running 05/16/2013

This review is from: SIIG JU-DK0111-S1 USB 3.0 Dual Head Docking Station

Pros: It gives me one place to plug everything in, works pretty well but still has its own share of quirks. It did not want to work with my Intel eXtensible USB controller in Win8 - there is only the default driver from Microsoft...kinda.

Cons: Have to jump through a ton of hoops to get it working. Mouse studder/lag on occasion still.

Other Thoughts: After fighting with it and running into the "reported/known issues" and doing everything I could think of, I stumbled over a way to get the Win7 Intel drivers in place for the USB controller and then it just works. Details on the fix are outlined here: http://plugable.com/2012/12/01/windows-8-and-intel-usb-3-0-host-Controllers - worked for me.

IOGEAR GCS1644 4-Port Dual View Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch with Audio

4 out of 5 eggs Great KVM - wish functionality was a bit different 01/29/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS1644 4-Port Dual View Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch with Audio

Pros: Dual DVI monitors, audio (if you need that), USB 2.0

Cons: My keyboard and mouse did not work in any capacity when connected via the "standard" keyboard and mouse ports.

Other Thoughts: This is my second iogear KVM and this one is a vast improvement on the one I had before, technically. I really like both, but my G500 mouse and Corsair K60 keyboard do not work AT ALL via the GCS1644's keyboard and mouse ports.

I expected some compatibility for the keyboard via the keyboard port on the KVM, maybe the loss of media buttons or something similar (which is perfect fine by me) but the keyboard failed to work on any of the four systems I have connected. Moving the keyboard to the straight USB 2.0 port on the back of the unit gave me full keyboard functionality (and media buttons) but I've ate up the one extra port on the rear of the KVM and I've lost soft-key control of the KVM.

The same story for my Logitech G500 - I expected some level of functionality via the mouse port, however it will not track on the x-axis at all on any of the systems when connected to the GCS1644's mouse port. Moving the mouse to the straight USB 2.0 port also brought back all functionality.

To get by for now I have connected my mouse and keyboard via a USB hub to the USB 2.0 port and I simply will work without the soft-key control over the KVM (that wasn't overly critical to me anyway.) I just count myself lucky that I had a USB hub lying around that I could use since there is only the one USB 2.0 port on the rear of the unit.

In all fairness, I sent a message to iogear support this morning via email so hopefully they will have a recommendation or a method of disabling the USB emulation via the keyboard/mouse ports on the rear of the unit so I can at least get off the USB hub.

All in all, it's a great KVM, dual monitor DVI is HUGE in my book and USB 2.0 is too (my last KVM was USB 1.1 and VGA but it lasted 12+ years too.)

I'd buy it again, just be aware you may have issues with the keyboard and mouse ports unless you are using the most vanilla of keyboards and mice.
