nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Good but not great 10/14/2012

This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: The case is built of solid steel, with some great thought behind the layout. It looks nice and has room for everything. It can hold 6 HDDs comfortably, and there's adequate cooling for a fairly hefty build.

Cons: Some of the screw holes don't line up just right. Again, it's solid steel, it didn't get bent a little in shipping. It was drilled (by machine) WRONG. I was able to get all my screws in with some coaxing. I had to get each one started then go back and tighten them. Regardless, it should be better than that.

Other Thoughts: A little better attention to detail on the part of the manufacturer would make this case 5 eggs without a doubt.

BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter

1 out of 5 eggs WAREHOUSE WORKERS PAY ATTENTION!!! 09/01/2011

This review is from: BYTECC DVI-HM DVI Male to HDMI Female Cable Adapter

Pros: It's great little jewel for the price (I think, see below).

Cons: I didn't get what I ordered. The pix on the site show an adapter to plug into one's graphics card, and give them and HDMI port (where one would presumably plug an HDMI cable in). I got an adapter that has the right DVI connection, but the opposite HDMI connection... what the !@#$%?

Other Thoughts: I don't even know how to use this (wrong) adapter. I'd have to have a coupler for one connection or the other, and I don't because I've never needed one before, despite the many crazy things I've done over the years. Newegg, you fail, it's only $7 (with shipping), but it's still my hard earned money, and you're wasting it. I wonder if tiger direct has improved their shipping any in recent years....

LSI MegaRAID Internal  Low-Power SATA/SAS 9240-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Kit--Avago Technologies
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This card seems to be a good entry level hardware card. It can do various raid systems and has 8 ports. For the price, I can hardly complain, seeing as it's another $100 to get anything better. This is my first hardware RAID, so once I got through some little technical details, I was off and running. It's really a pretty slick card.

Cons: As another reviewer pointed out, it has no cache which definitely slows the write performance of my RAID 5. Still for the price I can hardly complain. Though in retrospect, for a RAID 5 and eight ports, I would suggest saving up some more money and buying the bigger brother to this card...

Other Thoughts: I presently have four WD drives ( ) in a RAID 5 on this card. Like I've said, the writes are kinda slow, but the reads seem pretty fast. Ultimately I'll probably buy the bigger brother I mentioned above. But at the current prices, it's gonna be a little while.
