This review is from: ZyXEL 1100 Series GS1100-8HP-240W Unmanaged 8-port Gigabit 240W PoE+ Switch
Pros: Plenty of power for your POE needs, fast..
Cons: Not rack mountable -- not even as an option
Other Thoughts: I am Zyxel fan - all my networking gear is zyxel so when I ventured into a POE IP cameras I naturally looked for zyxel switch to power them. I thought i found the perfect switch -- plenty of power, front mounted ports, built in power supply.. perfect. on the pictures it has even the mounting holes for the mounting brackets exactly like the 16 port gigabit switch or the zywall firewalls...
...except that it doesn't come with mounting brackets, not even as an option. The casing is pre-drilled, but this is a desktop switch. Unless you make your own, you won't be able to adapt any existing brackets.
Contacted zyxel asking about the feasibility to adapt this rack mount option -- the answer I got is that I should have went with a higher model that is rack mountable. Yeah, zyxel products are generally well priced and a bargain compared to other brands but what does it really hurt to add 2 brackets to make this switch rack mountable? Seriously zyxel?
This review is from: iStarUSA BPU-126-SA 1 x 5.25" to 6 x 2.5" SATA 6.0 Gb/s Hot-Swap Cage
Pros: Fits like a glove in a 5.25 space, comes with cables -- just one sweet cage
Cons: umm.. the looks? Styling resembles the industrial iStarUSA server cases with cheap-o looking reflective stickers.
Other Thoughts: Super awesome gadget for your server needs. So many uses, so little time! I put that in my "Frankenstein" server using a iStarUSA server case and a supermicro mobo and it's a winning combo. All drives, detected, all drives running without any issues. Big kudos to the mfg for including the SATA cables.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BISSELL 1940 PowerFresh Steam Mop
Pros: Solid, easy to fill tank, comes with 2 sets of 2 pads each, does not flood the floors, has a handy scrubbing brush. Good surface coverage (the pad is large enough) and the mop is heavy enough to provide enough friction to scrub floors.
Cons: I wish the handle twisted 90 degrees for compact storage (but show me one mop that does that)
Other Thoughts: ... mop mop mop, while I sing this song....
Got it to replace my cheap-o shark and this mop is soooo much better. See the pros - my thoughts on this products ae all there. Let's see how long it lasts, but for now, it's a win.
