MSI Wind Nettop 100 Intel 1.6GHz Atom 330 (dual core) on board Intel 945GC Intel GMA 950 Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low power draw, even under max load.
Small form factor.
Dual core at a decent price.
Great for general use.

Cons: 2GB memory limit.
Bright blue LED power light (not really a con but, could be annoying to some).
Fan Whir.

Other Thoughts: The fan, even at full speed isn't loud however, as its being throttled depending on system activity, it does have a distinct whir that can annoy some. Its honestly not a big deal to me.

I use it for data backup on my network, as a print server, and for media sharing. Its a good choice for the job since I can leave it on 24/7 and its always available on my network when I need another computer to print or back something up.

The most graphically intense can you can run on it is Quake Arena (its obviously not for gaming). However, it handles hi-def video well. If you need a little more power out of the GMA 950 adapter, you download GMABooster and increase its clock from 166MHz to 400MHz (2.4x boost) safely.

I've never had any problems with over heating ever. If you mount it vertical, read the manual and make sure its right side up (cooling fan toward the top) or sideways with the vents clear. It should not need any 3rd party cooling mods.

HyperX 2GB 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 533 (PC2 4200) Laptop Memory Model KHX4200S2LL/2G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Low latency memory for laptops and mini systems. Kingston name brand with a lifetime warranty is a plus.

Cons: When I got this from Newegg last March in 09'. It was less then half the price it is now. No joke.

Other Thoughts: Using it in a MSI Netwind 100 bare bones PC. No problems yet. Its new retail hurts its value though.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle w/Lego Batman & Pure
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent System! 04/22/2010

This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle w/Lego Batman & Pure

Pros: Bought mine from Newegg last November and it is a confirmed Jasper model.
Standard 120 GB HD.
Awesome Black Friday deal gave you a $50 gift card.
HDMI out.
2 Free Games to start off.
Robust, well-built.

Cons: The DVD drive is easily the loudest thing on the console. NONE of the other components make any audible sound (i.e. cooling devices).
No HDMI cable is included, Only standard analog RCA composite (Video, Left and Right audio).
Can't install any alternate Operating Systems w/o hardware modification.

Other Thoughts: No idea why people who don't own this particular version are posing bad reviews on this Xbox's page but, this version has the latest updates to remedy previous problems with RRoD. I had it lock up on me once during the burn-in phase (first 200 hours of use) but its been flawless ever since.

Xbox live gold memberships for 12 months can be had for $30 or so and the networking quality is superior to PS3's freebie system (both have pros and cons).

I have a 24” monitor that accepts DVI inputs so all I had to do is buy a cheap HDMI to DVI cable. After doing some research, I found out you could pop off the plastic surrounding the RCA Composite cable (the end that plugs into the system) and use the sound from there while having the HDMI cable in at the same time for Hi-def video. Works like a charm.
