1 out of 5 eggs Linux support lacking 10/15/2014

This review is from: Brother MFC-8910DW Wireless Monochrome Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Nice printer when it works

Cons: While claming to support Linux and providing their own Linux binary drivers they apparently didn't bother to actually test their own drivers. Some amount of time after the printer goes into sleep mode the printer will not respond to requests to print from their Linux driver until it is awoken from a Windows PC Macintosh, or a mobile device. Sleep mode can't be disabled either, you can only adjust the timeout. As soon as the other device communicates to the printer all the queued (stuck) print jobs on Linux immediately print as well. Looking online this problem appears to have existed for quite a while, and updating the printer firmware and drivers so far does nothing to help.

They apparently have no real tech support for Linux either except for a web form to fill out and they never respond after filling it out.

Extra annoying is the fact Macintosh uses the same printing subsystem as Linux (CUPS is developed by Apple) and works fine. That's probably because the developer assigned to it remembered to add the command sequence to wake the printer back up before trying to send a print job.

SAPPHIRE FleX 100322FLEX Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: * Silent
* Runs very cool

Cons: * DOA

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace a very old fanless dual dvi card driving two 1920x1200 monitors. As soon as it was installed though video corruption issues began on the DVI-D (black) port. Hopefully RMA for a replacement unit will correct the issue.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Fan 09/24/2009

This review is from: Scythe SY1225SL12M 120mm "Slipstream" Case Fan

Pros: Fast and fairly quiet

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Note that if you hook this up directly to your motherboard make certain its RPM is within specs. When I hooked it up to my board it would only spin at 900rpm and wasn't moving much air, there are no options to change voltage on my board so I am not sure why it wasn't running at full speed. I thought it was defective at first until I tried another fan with the same results. I then hooked it up via the 4pin molex and it then spun at 1300rpm and moved a lot more air.
