This review is from: PW-200-M 200W DC-DC ITX ATX 12V Power Supply PSU for Mini PC (24pin)
Pros: Question: How do you plug it in? And to what?
Cons: not enough info to evaluateREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Beebox N3150/B 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Mini / Booksize Barebone System
Pros: works well for its low power and yields better than expected 3d graphics. Runs several programs without lag. Quickly assembled without issue. You need to immediately install the intel video drivers off the disk. For my use we only installed Samsung 2TB hard drive. Disk Speeds are adequate. Expensive msata while much faster would be over kill and not greatly improve overall performance. Price from Newegg with added memory was very good.
Cons: none except I cannot find instructions for the controller. I have no idea how to use it and the hieroglyphics on it saying "release", "open", and "push" are incomprehensible.
You cannot forget that it is NOT in the same league as i7 Brix or i7 Nucs. This is low power computing!
Other Thoughts: Bought to replace intel atom no longer powerful enough for running a 24 hour accounting computer app.+ spread sheets. Does that job well and at same time runs several browser apps without lag. no overheating.Even ok for limited general use. Totally free of any issues.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Can access while turned off. Great hot swaps. Using F12 key very easy multiple boots. Is an Xeon processor & Reasonably fast and snappy. Plenty of room for further hard drives over 4 it is set up for if you overcome PSU issues.
Cons: Obsolete DDR3 Mem. Obsolete E3 CPU and the weakest one with no hyperthreading. The lines off the PSU do not allow expansion or an advanced Video Card so you have to tinker. Only SAS 6gb/s instead of the new 12gb/s. O.K. for second machine. Make first an E5 costing about $1000.
Other Thoughts: I bought mine elsewhere for $300 as they are a glut on Lenovo's inventory as they become more obsolete. Do not over pay. Price out on Newegg an E5 with similar power CPU and SuperMircro keyboard about $1000.Then you get hyperthreading, DDR4 memory and 12 gb/s SAS.
i.e. the cutting edge not last decade's product.
