This review is from: XFX Low Profile Bracket Kit Model MA-BK01-LP1K
Pros: Cheap, plenty of extra brackets (different types so can potentially work for multiple cards depending on connectors on cards). Easy to swap brackets on cards.
Cons: Not 100% for every video card. It would be nice if it came a little more "adjustable" but it is inexpensive at least.
Other Thoughts: If you have a good set of pliers then these will fit pretty much any card that is low enough to slide into a sff case. The reason for the pliers is so you can tighten down the threaded screw holes (parden my french) so that they don't come loose when you unscrew the vga/dvi connectors. They should be enough to hold the bracket to the card as long as you're not man-handling them.
I think these will fit most low profile cards, they fit the variety of cards I have in my spare parts bin, but of course that's assuming the card is low enough to fit into the sff case of course. I suppose there are cards that mount the vga and dvi ports at different lengths, but just look at the picture and take your best guess. You should be ok, and if not, then you have spare parts for $5.
This review is from: Ubiquiti UniFi AP Enterprise WiFi System Long Range UAP-LR
Pros: Easy to install, easy to configure, easy to manage, great coverage.
We are using a couple of these in our office. We bought them direct, and we resell them. They have a strong signal, and we have had no connectivity issues on our network. They work extremely well, better in fact than the cisco aps we were pushing before these.
The true pros on these are seen when you buy the 3 pack, or if you have a large campus area to cover (I setup 11 of these on a school campus). The management software is easy to use, and with a properly scaled map you can get a fairly accurate heat map representing your coverage area. Auto discovery and configuration make these extremely easy to manage and configure. Multiple VLANS are easy to configure and manage as well.
We had full bars on a Lenovo laptop in a downstairs basement with a concrete ceiling even though the ap was upstairs mounted on a 15' high ceiling. We put one of these in a school gym office and it lost 1 bar when we crossed to the far corner of the gym opposite from the office.
We had a laptop have a stronger signal on one of these 2 buildings over than the cisco ap in the same room.
These are absolutely incredible.
Cons: Not a huge benefit with just 1, the benefits of these are seen when using multiple ap's over a large coverage area. The management software is pointless with just one. Also, not so much a major con, but the mounting plate is a little hard to unlock on some of these. Some were perfect while others locked and I thought was going to break it when unscrewing the ap from the plate on a couple.
The biggest con is the wait, but that just shows that these are worth it. If you can find someone that has these in stock (Like Newegg) then don't hesitate.
Other Thoughts: I don't have a major need for one of these in my home. I have a small space and therefore there's not a huge benefit to having just 1. These are about scalability, easy management, and the coverage you get on a large campus with these is absolutely unbelievable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS Sabertooth X58 LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Does it's job, period.
Cons: No legacy connectors, Windows 8 support not really there (but you don't hear me actually complaining about that one to be honest).
Other Thoughts: I bought this to keep my cost down on my last personal build. I haven't had any problems. Windows 8 support not there. It installs drivers, and it seems to run fine on 8, but I had some issues with a couple of games that I didn't have in 7 with the mfg drivers. I probably could have resolved it with 3rd party alts but I prefer 7 over 8 personally. That's my 2 cents.READ FULL REVIEW
