Pros: - fits in almost any enclosure due to small size
- priced well
- high quality printed circuit board
- all the ports and expansion slots you need for basic build, even a PS/2 port if you have an old favorite keyboard you just can't quit using
Cons: - None so far
Other Thoughts: This board was put in an Antec vsk-4000 midtower case and fit with all kinds of room to spare. Configured with:
core i5 4570
16GB (2 x 8GB) ADATA RAM
Sandisk 128GB SSD
Seagate 2TB HDD
using on-board/on-chip video
thermaltake 600W PSU
Pros: Prints excellent quality, and fast. Inexpensive. Scans multi-page documents (single-sided only) straight from the feeder.
Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu
Ink cartridges easy to replace
Cons: Software takes long time to install and is buggy. Requires occasional re-installation.
Navigation of settings on the small screen is a chore.
Other Thoughts: This printer serviced our family well for nearly 3 years and now has an error indicating something is wrong with an ink cartridge I just replaced a few weeks ago. For what printers cost, I am inclined to just buy a new printer. I found an online vendor that still sells the 4500, so maybe i will do that and keep this one for spare parts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, affordable, fits nicely in a laptop, comes with a thin (1mm?) spacer in case you need it
This unit is also sized appropriately for any of the major operating systems if you don't need a lot of extra space for software and data.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Installed this SSD several days ago to replace a 5400rpm HDD in a Toshiba laptop for my step-mother. The difference in performance is very noticeable when booting and launching applications. Complete reboot in less than 1 minute. It probably would have been better with a fresh install of the OS, but I just cloned the existing disk to save time.READ FULL REVIEW
