Pros: Very compact! Smaller than I thought it would be, and very light. Speed is about what I'd expect - fairly snappy.
Cons: The description as of when I write this is incorrect - this does not have the i5-5250u, it has the i5-5200u. Look up the spec sheet on Shuttle's website and you'll see. Also, as a result of being so compact, there are some tradeoffs. There are two RAM slots, but you have to completely remove the motherboard to access the second one, as well as to access the M.2 slot. If you use a 2.5" drive, it has a somewhat cumbersome bracket mounting system, and you must get a drive that is 7mm thick, rather than the usual 9.5mm. But again, at this size, I think it's cool that it supports 2.5" drives at all.
Other Thoughts: Don't forget the restrictions! 7mm drives and DDR3L memory. Other than that a pretty decent product, especially at the lower price I got it for as a Shell Shocker deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Eagle ET-ARHP200BF-BR Black/Red Foldable Bluetooth Stereo Headset
Pros: When it works, it works well
OK sound quality - if you're an audiophile obviously these aren't for you
They look pretty good
Cons: Too tight when first received, but they eventually become too loose
Other Thoughts: I just ordered my third pair of these. Not because they are so amazing, but because they are cheap enough that I pretty much consider them disposable. The first pair physically broke at the top, although that was my fault from being too rough with them. Before that point they barely stayed on my head because they'd gotten so loose from frequent wearing. They still worked, but really couldn't stay on any more.
The second pair started to malfunction a few days ago. It wouldn't power on unless plugged in, and when it did power on the left ear wasn't producing sound. They had only lasted ~6 months, so since they were still under warranty, I contacted the manufacturer. Apparently this model has not been produced for some time, so they can't replace or service them. They offered me a different set of headphones, but it was wired. I wasn't interested. I just decided to grab another pair because I do like these a lot when everything is working.
Basically, just consider these disposable and you'll be fine. They'll work for a while then stop, and if you like them you can get another pair fairly cheaply.
This review is from: GIGABYTE Model GC-WB867D-I (ver. 2) Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi Expansion Card
Pros: The Wifi usually works fairly well, though I have had it cut out a few times.
Cons: The Bluetooth functionality is very poor. It cannot hold a connection to my Bluetooth headset, when all my other Bluetooth devices have no problem doing so. When it disconnects, I have to unpair and re-pair the devices, or in extreme cases reinstall the driver.
Other Thoughts: If you are getting this for the Bluetooth functionality, you may want to look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
