SYBA USB 3.0 (3+1) PCI-e Controller Card, Etron Chipset, Molex (IDE HD 4-pin) Built-iModel SY-PEX20135
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Won't turn on if power/molex is plugged in 07/04/2013

This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 (3+1) PCI-e Controller Card, Etron Chipset, Molex (IDE HD 4-pin) Built-iModel SY-PEX20135

Pros: It has the right configuration, and it is affordable.

Cons: After plugging it in to a server, it wouldn't detect. I thought it could be a compatibility issue with the server so I tried it on a home computer.

The system will not even turn on once you plug the card into the molex connector. Unplug the power to the card and it'll turn on fine. It's definitely the card.

Other Thoughts: None of these PCIe cards from any manufacturer get consistently good ratings, this one was at 4/5 stars so I thought I'd give it a shot. It seems like the most recent batch may be defective, because the last few reviews have all had major issues.

OEM Production 2550L2D-MxPC Intel NM10 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3650 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I'm the IT Director at a school district and purchased two of these to run PFsense with CARP in failover. Our old server died, and these have more than enough power for our 10mb connection (and should handle any future upgrades). When looking at the utilization, it is rarely ever over 1%.

They are small, light, cheap, and work fantastic (with Pfsense 2.0--there are potential problems setting it up with any version higher than that).

Heck, just a dual nic PCIE card can cost almost as much as this barebones system.

Cons: When running anything higher than PFSense 2.0, (I tried 2.1 and 2.2) the display is impossible to use. It stops refreshing properly and it makes it nearly impossible to see what you are doing/installing. If you can fumble your way through it, however, it will install fine.

Alternatively, you can probably install it using a terminal connection with a serial connection.

Other Thoughts: Worth it just for the dual nic.

D-Link DAP-2555 AirPremier N Dual Band, PoE Access Point Powered by CloudCommand
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs $100 Per AP yearly for CloudCommand 02/27/2012

This review is from: D-Link DAP-2555 AirPremier N Dual Band, PoE Access Point Powered by CloudCommand

Pros: Decent access point. The Cloud Command tool is very convenient. Cloud Command can Be removed via firmware update if you don't want to pay the fees.

Cons: The selling point for this AP is its "Cloud Command" tool that can manage all of your APs from the web, without paying for an expensive controller based solution.

HOWEVER--this Cloud Command tool costs $100 PER ACCESS POINT after the first year. If you don't plan on paying $100 per year, there are better APs out there in the same price range.
