This review is from: MSI 760GM-P34 (FX) AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: The thing is rock solid. An armada of PCIeX16, x1 slots and SATA3 connections. Support for huge memory (I'm using 16gb now, a paltry sum for this board). Support for massive interconnect bandwidth. It is the backbone of my primary Xen server. The thing is SUPER reliable.
Cons: None so far.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon CanoScan LiDE110 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB Interface Flatbed Scanner
Pros: Takes good scans, even for photos and artwork. Reasonable speed. Great quality for the money.
Cons: Lid doesn't want to close all the way. It's very light, and does not apply any pressure to the object being scanned, so it sometimes makes gradients if you don't do something about it. Mine is weiged down by a bible. First time I've found one of those useful.
Other Thoughts: If using Linux, you'll have to play with the brightness and contrast in something other than Simple Scan (SS won't change those settings). Scans will come out muddy and dark. Use xsane or something more powerful like that to compensate for this. Just save your settings for that device and you're done. I guess it's not really that different in work required than dodging Windows junk software in the install. Pick your poison.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MOTOROLA SB6141 SURFboard DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet (RJ-45)
Pros: Runs fast. Really, I'll never approach this thing's maximim capacity within it's lifetime. Seems solid.
Cons: If you connect a 100 mbps router to it, which most are, it will blink red. It's not really just that, but it has a really bright light. The others are pretty bright, too. Getting real sick of this whole super bright indicator light trend. Hope it dies some time soon.READ FULL REVIEW
