Pros: Between the two ports, you have both "charger" configurations for the data port requirements (some phones are picky about whether the data cables are open or shorted), so you can charge just about brand of device. Works great for my Nexus 4, my wife's LG L90, her old Samsung, my HP Touchpad, and everything else I've ever plugged in.
Cons: The back is large and sticks out a bit. A smaller tail configuration would be nice but I'm not really that pick about it.
Other Thoughts: I've got two and bought a few for friends. Everyone's happy and I'm looking at another for a new project. For the price, you can't go wrong.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR ReadyNAS 102 (RN10200-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storage
Pros: The 102 works well for a basic NAS with lots of good features including flexible arrays, lots of control (though not as extensive as it could be on the hardware side), and plenty of expandable features like USB hosting, software apps, and cloud access both via Netgear and other providers. The hardware seems to be well thought out and doesn't have any weird kinks I've encountered so far. Also, this uses a file format that allows removal of the disk from the unit and retrieving data from another computer so data loss due to a "system failure" rather than disk failure is a non issue (this can be a large problem with other systems that I've used in the past).
Cons: The software, though fairly well designed and implemented, is not complete for this model. For instance, you will find Dropbox support all over the marketing materials for this family of products & software but it is not functional for the ARM based units like this one (even though it shows up in the software as configurable). I'm hoping that Netgear changes this but, meanwhile, it shows a lack of interest in the "lower end" of this family of products and left a bitter taste in my mouth. In fact, this is what kept it from getting a 5 out of 5 star review from me even though they have their own (much more expensive) cloud service available as well.
Other Thoughts: If you need a simple, user friendly NAS box for your small office or home, this is a good contender but I'll suggest that you'll need to find a workaround for cloud backup of your files if you need it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Price vs. Performance. Most games are still more CPU speed dependent than core dependent, so more clock is more important than more cores.
Cons: No integrated GPU for flexibility or possible offloads, though this does save on CPU heat loss for OC. It's not going to win the next DARPA project price for supercomputing by itself.
Other Thoughts: The reviewer that states this is a single core using hyperthreading needs to read up on his CPU technology a bit better. Not only is that an Intel trick rather than an AMD trick, this cpu is a dual core, single die design with two processors located in the same die envelope. Intel uses a design that allows two pathways for data creating two logical cores for the OS per CPU, not AMD which uses single path in all of their designs (so far). Don't bash if you don't know what you're talking about. This is a real dual core chip, not a single core masquerading as dual through hyperthreading (not that intel does that either).READ FULL REVIEW
