This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600
Pros: Decently laid out.
Cons: Memory is hard to find that really works. Some of the memory listed in the recommended memory list just plain did not work. Finally ended up using 4 x 8GB of the 1.5volt Samsung memory they list to get it to work. Set up the boot drive with two WD enterprise 500GB drives in a mirror using the on board RAID. Server kept blue screening. Broke the RAID and ran on 1 drive and the blue screening stopped. However, the SATA RDX drive all of a sudden disappears and we have to reboot the server to get it back. Took a week for Supermicro to get back with me only to say I have to send the board in for two separate updates. Seems they have some faulty components on the board. Bad part is this server is in production and I can't just take it apart and send in the motherboard and wait several days for them to fix it. No advance replacement on a board that is only 5 months old! Seems to me not enough testing was done on this board before they released it for retail sale.
Other Thoughts: Don't think I'm gonna buy another Supermicro board again....READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SIIG CE-MT0R12-S1 Articulating Triple Monitor Desk Mount - 13" to 27"
Pros: Holds my 3 older 23 inch Acer monitors perfectly. Was reading other reviews and everyone was complaining about how the outside monitors were an inch lower than the center. I don't have that problem. All monitors are exactly the same height! Probably they have the VESA mount up-side-down. The outside monitors appear to sag a bit but that is because I have them angled inward and lined up with the center monitor. The center monitor is tilted slightly downward thus making the outside monitors appear to sag. Actually they are not sagging... Solid construction and great finish. Plenty of hardware to attach any monitor. Just need to tighten all the pivot points as with anything they are not tightened from the factory. Do you honestly believe they would custom make this stand for the monitor you choose? I don't think so... Anyway, great mount if you take your time to assemble it right!
Cons: Can't think of any
Other Thoughts: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very small case. Easy to hide with the VESA mounting bracket. I was able to sqeeze a Western Digital 2TB drive in this thing. That with an Intel D510M0 Atom processor motherboard and 4 gigs of ram. (with heat fins no less) and everything fit perfectly!
Cons: Not really a con but others were complaining about the bright blue led. Looks like they changed it and now they are red.
Other Thoughts: Made a great home server with this combination. Quiet and works fantastic! No heat problems and the PSU was able to handle everything!READ FULL REVIEW
