Pros: This is a nice, little, quiet server. Its not very big in dimensions or weight. Makes a great home/SMB server. I immediately upgraded to 8GB mem and running Windows Home Server 2011. I utilized this server as a file and back up server. I also have incorporated Windows Server Update Services to update my pc's. This machine handles it all well for a 1.5Ghz processor.
Cons: It be nice if the bays were hot swappable, but thats a minor con. The power cable, if you decide to install a cd/dvd drive, is a 4 pin molex connector, but the data cable is sata, not a pata ide cable; therefore you need a cable adapter from 4pin molex to sata to install a cd/dvd, doesn't make no sense and it didnt come with an adapter which would've been nice. The door and drive trays are very flimsy plastic. To upgrade the ram you have to slide out the mobo, which is fairly easy, but I was afraid i was going to break the motherboard when I was trying to disconnect the hdd data cable from it. It was on so tight it took nearly ten minutes of slowly trying to loosen the connector, and two very sore thumbs to get the cable off. it would've been nice to at least have a 2.5GHz processor as running the backups do tend to max out the cpu at times. I dropped one egg due to the cable tightness and no power cable adapter.
Other Thoughts: All-in-all, for the price, excellent little server. It serves my needs very well. i do plan on purchasing another one. When you have 5 to 10 pc's, it is not economical to have backup software for each machine, burning to discs is time consumig and confusing. Much easier using one machine to back up all pc's. I have a RAID tower attached to the eSata port configured in a RAID 5+1 storing all my client pc backups, and an internal and external drive backing up my server.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon RS-60E3 Remote Control Wired Remote Switch
Pros: I am an ameteur photographer using a Canon Rebel DSLR and constantly attempting to take those hard to get shots (eg. Fireworks, lightning strikes, etc). Pressing the button on the camera creates a slight vibration that can greatly affect the shot, but using a remote such as this, you can create excellent results.
Cons: I wish my camera would accept a wireless remote, but this is no fault of this individual product. I do wish the cord was a little bit longer, otherwise, it does as it states every single time i use it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Unmatched power. This is the best CPU I own, and have yet to max it out. I use this on a computer I built specifically for use as an HTPC, and on occassion is used for first person shooter type of games. Great processor by an Awesome company (AMD!!!) and I have not even came close to maxing it out.
Cons: Cons?? What cons? Its AMD, and its a flawless processor, I may have to upgrade my other pc's to this one.READ FULL REVIEW
