Pros: I'm not familiar with the Windows issues that the below reviewers seem to be reporting. The board has exceeded my expectations when it comes to my linux install. I left my Linux OS intact on a Crucial 128GB MX1 SSD and moved my user directory to a WD Blue 320GB drive.
On first boot into Ubuntu all of the hardware was detected and anything missing was installed through an update which I had expected. Gigabyte's Linux support has always exceeded most other manufacturers.
If you're going with Linux expect no problems with support.
Cons: I don't have enough time I get a cup of coffee when I restart.
Other Thoughts: On first boot, I updated the BIOS to the latest Gigabyte had available and perhaps this is an explanation as to why I haven't had the issues of the other reviewers.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Luxa2 Groovy Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker 2.1
Pros: The radio is highly compatible with older devices as it uses an older bluetooth 2.1 protocol and auto connects to the host device, no need for passcodes or pressing another button to pair. A "unique" sounds let me know when it turns on/off and paired.
Audio quality is good with no rattles and I have charged it once and it is still going strong. The build materials are fantastic, aluminum with leather and a cloth net protecting the face.
Cons: I've noticed a finite limit at about 20' where the bluetooth transfer loss causes the audio to cutout. Volume is not normalized so don't stray too far from the host or speaker, those around you will thank you for turning it down. There's no rattle and no bass. The bass is on the high end of the lower spectrum, drum and bass sounds like drum and cymbal, kind of a bummer there.
Other Thoughts: I have two young boys and this speaker travels around the house with us. Whether we're jamming to Laurie Berkner or chilling to Tycho the audio quality has always been good. Notable extras were the black and brown leather handles and pull string bag.
My wife likes how it looks ...
This review is from: D-Link DGS-1008G Gigabit Desktop Switch - Retail
Pros: I bought this to upgrade my network backbone and the configuration is stupid easy.
Cons: You think you have time to get a cup of coffee and browse the paper transferring files? Well, now you don't.
I'm curious what the "Green" actually means for it's durability over the years but at the price I paid, I can replace it twice over 5 years and still have saved money.
Other Thoughts: No other thoughts, the speed is great. If you are wanting to connect this directly to another device like a router, plan on having only 7 ports available because one will be used for that connection.READ FULL REVIEW
