Pros: Mushkin's reputation for reliability is very good.
Uses last generation tried and true technology.
This 120GB capacity is enough for Windows plus a good amount of programs.
Cons: Write speeds are never super fast on a 120GB capacity SSD, but in practice you won't notice it unless you spend all your time running speed tests.
Other Thoughts: For those who want a low-price SSD from a reputable maker this is a great place to start.
If your laptop or desktop computer is an older model this SSD will really speed things up for you. The only thing to check is to make sure your system uses "SATA" type hard drive. Basically, that would be every computer made in the last 10 years. Even the oldest SATA I models will benefit from having an SSD.
For those who already have an SSD and it's almost full this would be a good add-on drive for extra capacity and very fast Read speeds.
This review is from: On Networks N300 Wireless Router N300R
Pros: Great little router does all the basics well and with good security.
Has pretty good wireless range for such an inexpensive model.
Can be easily set up as a wireless access point to extend the wi-fi range of an existing router.
Cons: Lightweight construction can be tipped over easily so place it carefully on desk .
Other Thoughts: We've had one of these for a couple of years, first as our main router then as a secondary unit when we got a more powerful model later on. We won't let this one go - it's a simple and reliable way to get wi-fi in 3 or 4 rooms.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASRock Q1900-ITX Intel Celeron J1900 Motherboard/CPU/VGA Combo
Pros: ASRock website clearly states this board works with:
"OS - Microsoft® Windows® 8.1 32-bit / 8.1 64-bit / 8 32-bit / 8 64-bit / 7 32-bit / 7 64-bit"
According to other reviewers here it also works well with Linux and FreeNAS (for a home server).
Incredible value in a low-power, passively cooled quad-core system.
Cons: None at the price!
Other Thoughts: i don't understand why people give lower ratings because of things they failed to check before buying. ASRock clearly states that the board works with Windows 7 and 8 (or 8.1). Nowhere do they claim that it works with Windows Server OS. Also, they clearly tell you the board has 4 x SATA ports so why complain that it doesn't have more? Please do your homework before you buy. As the ancient Greeks said - caveat emptor!
Been running this board at home for about 5 months. Power consumption is very low and the system runs fairly cool even when left on 24/7 as a HTPC.
We have a SiliconDust HD Homerun Prime cablecard TV tuner box (3 digital tuners built-in) which connects via ethernet cable to our home router. From there the TV tuner is available to every computer on our home network, both wired and wireless.
Also connected to the router via ethernet cable is a Netgear 500Mbps powerline adapter. A second powerline adapter is in the other room where it's connected to the PC with the ASRock Q1900 motherboard running Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center (installed on a Kingston 64GB SSD).
There's a strong enough signal over the powerline adapter to allow Media Center to record up to 3 TV shows at once on a 2TB WD hard drive. Playback is perfectly smooth with excellent image quality. Have not played any Blu-ray discs on this PC, but there's no reason to think it wouldn't work.
The whole setup has worked flawlessly and the Q1900-based PC is the lowest power consumption computer we have ever owned. It's roughly the equivalent of running a 20-watt light bulb and most of the time it idles at around 8 to 12 watts.
