This review is from: Intel NUC NUC5PPYH, HDMI, VGA, Intel HD Graphics, USB 3.0
Pros: Compact, Quiet, Packed with all necessary ports and wireless features. Easy Windows 10 install.
Cons: Processor is adequate but lacking in clock speed. No dual channel memory. Integrated graphics are adequate but weak.
Other Thoughts: For the money this is a good option if you want to enter the modern mini-pc world with Windows 10. Installation was very simple, albeit slower than I expected even with installing from a flash drive to an SSD it took 30+ minutes.
This is a solid piece of technology, nothing mindblowing here except what Intel managed to pack into this little ashtray sized box. WinSAT Scores in Win10 Pro x64 with the free G.Skill DDR3 1600 4mb Ram and a Mushkin ECO2 SATAIII SSD are:
This review is from: AVS Gear W9870 USB Wired Slim Large Print LED Keyboard
Pros: Large print, two colors of backlight from a more subtle glowing blue to higher contrast orange. Relatively solid tactile feel to the keys.
Cons: Not really cons just minor points of contention: the keys do feel different as another reviewer pointed out, but not necessarily in a bad way. I'm just used to thinkpad keyboards which are the best imho. The keys do give a decent but not overly loud click and feedback but the action is smooth. Also, the light button switches from blue to orange with one click, but to turn off the backlight entirely you must hold it down for a few seconds, just a minor quirk nothing to dock an egg off for.
Other Thoughts: As long as it turns out to be durable this is a good solution for nighttime cybersurfers or gamers who want a basic easy to use backlit keyboard that wont break the bank.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I needed a beefier wireless adapter with a directional antennae to get all that I could out of an iffy connection. My laptop wireless chip just wasn't strong enough. This seems to fit the bill nicely and I get at least 2 bars more of signal strength on average.
Cons: The provided usb extender dock was malfunctioning and caused the adapter to lose connection at random. Once I removed it and plugged the adapter straight into the usb port these issues were resolved. This is the only reason for 4 instead of 5 stars.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you get the latest drivers from the rosewill site and install them first to ensure maximum performance. I've had issues with rosewill wifi adapters in the past and a driver update has always fixed the problem.READ FULL REVIEW
