Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Supra-aural Headset
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works for me 07/28/2011

This review is from: Logitech ClearChat Comfort USB Supra-aural Headset

Pros: Has worked great for me for IM, Skype, GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar.

Comfortable for hour+ long calls and meetings.

Cons: Volume control can come apart easily.

Intel 320 Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I like the extra stuff that comes with this drive. I needed the internal drive adapter to put in my DIY server.

Works perfectly with XenServer 5.6 SP2. VMs load extremely fast.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Just ordered an Intel 40GB drive to use as the boot drive for my XenServer host. XenServer only needs a 16GB boot drive.

I also have two single purpose XenServer hosts for writing my tech articles and books. Both have the Intel 40GB SSD.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Unlike Tyan G34 boards, this D16 does NOT slow memory down to 800 when all memory slots are used.

Can upgrade BIOS from thumb drive.

Runs XenServer 5.6 with no issues.

Cons: CPU0 cooling fan required a little more effort than I was comfortable with in order to start turning the screws. CPU1 did not have this problem.

Other Thoughts: My build:
