G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Laptop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSQ
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Worked as advertised in my Dell N5050.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The hardest part was opening up the laptop to get at the memory and disk, and that was no small feat. Once in the installation was straightforward. The system recognized the memory with no problem. Windows 7 runs real good on 8GB of RAM.

Zotac ZBOX-AD02-PLUS-U AMD E-350 APU 1.6 GHz Dual Core AMD Hudson M1 w/ 2GB RAM, 250G HD All-in-One Mini PC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The price for a system with 2GB memory and 250GB HDD was too good to pass up. The memory is all on one memory stick, so adding another 2GB was a breeze, and I didn't have to pitch a pair of 1GB memory modules. I will initially use this for a remote system accessing my media server. Later I hope to bring up a VDI environment in my house where super performance from the local device is not required.

I also liked the USB3 ports. Future peripherals will really scream. The system is well constructed and opening the case to add memory was not difficult at all. I can see that the HDD would also be very easy to upgrade to something with SATA3 capabilities for an additional performance boost.

The VESA mounts worked well on my TV and the system is tucked up with nothing other than the cables and the USB DVD player showing. I connected the system to my TV via the HDMI port. That works as expected.

Cons: Doc Blows. I wish there was better documentation for setting the BIOS. It would have saved much time setting it up.

Other Thoughts: The system ships with 2GB of memory on 1-2GB SO-DIMM. I ordered another 2GB stick and now it has 4GB. Very nice. I could have replaced it with 2-4GB SO-DIMMs for 8GB, but it would have been overkill for my application.

SYBA SD-EXP20070 USB 3.0 Type-II Slim Flush Mount ExpressCard/34mm for Laptop PC
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fits flush with the case.

Cons: Runs hot. USB 3.0 thumb drives are not very much faster than USB 2.0 ports on the same machine. USB 3.0 external hard drive (Hitachi Touro Mobile Pro) is not recognized consistently. I tried updating to the latest drivers (2.1.27.0) for Renesas/NEC UDP720700A with some luck, but inconsistent. The drive was recognized briefly, but after putting some data on it and removing it, I found that later attachment showed bad directories.

Plugging the external drive into a USB 2.0 port works flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: I've contacted Syba support and hope that there is a newer driver.
