Pros: Works well with a custom built HTPC running Windows 7/XBMC. The basic functionality of the remote was working no problem and using the MCE Remote plugin in XBMC we were able to reprogram certain keys for other functionality that was previously only accessible when using a keyboard.
The remote has made it even easier for a non-tech user to interact with their HTPC. The remote is a comfortable form factor for them and easy to understand
Cons: Build quality has been good so far but it is very plasticy feeling and the buttons are a little mushy
Other Thoughts: Would buy againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Simple to use ADSL modem working very well. Reaching advertised speed of the connection (6Mbps/800Kbps) is not possible due to distance to the CO but the stability of the connection has been excellent since the modem was turned on. Real work speeds are 2.2Mbps down and 640Kbps up which is better than anything else offered in the area.
Cons: Unit had to factory reset before router's PPPoE settings actually worked. Not sure why this was necessary but it helped to get the connection up and urnning.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased this RAM to bump my desktop from 4GB total to 12GB total. Running 4 VMs was not possible with my previous setup but now is thanks to this kit. I can assign each VM 2GB of memory and still have plenty leftover for my OS.
Memory is running at it's spec'd speeds of 1600MHz and default timings of 9-9-9-24
Cons: Heat speaders are just a little too high. I wish Mushkin would make a Blackline heatspreader that is lower profile like their Silverline products.
Other Thoughts: Worked right away in my MSI 880GM-E43 mATX motherboard alongside another 4GB of Mushin RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
