Rotary Cable Stripper Cutter for STP UTP STP 2P 4P 6P 8P

2 out of 5 eggs Weak 10/12/2014

This review is from: Rotary Cable Stripper Cutter for STP UTP STP 2P 4P 6P 8P

Pros: This only cuts one component at a time, for coaxial, it's handy to buy a radial cutter that cuts in two places of the wire at the same time... otherwise just use a razor blade.

Cons: I prefer using a razor blade than to use this. The cut depth cuts right through the shielding on RG6 at the shallowest cut depth setting. I actually found a cheaper and more effective product at a local hardware store.

3 out of 5 eggs Keep shopping 01/14/2014

This review is from: ASRock E35LM1 AMD E-240 APU AMD A50M Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo

Pros: It's fairly stable, running debian 7... I think I might have needed to install 1 proprietary driver, but in the end it is a reliable system.

The sigle CPU is overkill for what I wanted, it's capable of watching MP4s. The CPU bottleneck isn't reached through transferring files over software raid1, although logging into the OS does find the CPU bottleneck fairly readily. Probably struggles with HULU but didn't check.

Cons: High power consumption, I idle at around 52watts with 2 HDDs and a chasis fan. I played with all the bios switches but couldn't get it lower than that. I primarily went shopping for a file server that I could leave on 24/7 and not worry about waste, but this thing is still pretty wasteful...

WOL is a bit odd, it works if you shut the system down normally, but if the system loses power it will lose WOL until next reboot.

7+ months in the CPU fan began making a really loud noise. I think it's a 40mm fan?? It's kind of a pain replacing it but maybe it's not needed since it went from 33C to only 43C with no fan (other than the chasis and PSU fans going).

Other Thoughts: I'd give this 4 stars if it weren't for the fact that I was trying to make an eco friendly green pc.

Maxtor QuickView 6L250R0 250GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache IDE Ultra ATA133 / ATA-7 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It has an IDE port.

Cons: It doesn't have locking. QuickView is Maxtor's term for "weak sauce version of the original" and so features have been removed.
