Pros: Everything just works under Ubuntu 11.04. Nvidia drivers installed by default, wireless works perfectly... it just works. Computer feels quite fast, and is able to playback 1080p YouTube videos in full motion (under firefox/flash, after they fully load). Wireless signal very strong.
Cons: Needs more cowbell. It also could use another set of USB ports on the back and the sound plugs at the back as it's fairly ugly having them stick out the top/side.
Overall Review: Overall, this computer is AMAZING for the price. The install process was a headache, only because this flash drive I have here is damaged. I used Unetbootin on a Windows system to put Ubuntu 11.04 on an SD card and installed from there.
Pros: Uhm...... it demonstrates what happens when pins get shorted?
Cons: Everything is a con. RMA'd the first one, got the new one. Put electrical tape over the connections on the board to keep it from frying. It turns out, all along, it doesn't support NTFS. FAT16 or FAT32 only. This is only stated in the manual, as a final note. Isn't Masscool supposed to be American made? It's obviously Chinese, given the poor grammer in the manual. I'll never buy another Masscool product again.
Overall Review: Do. Not. Buy.
Pros: Case seems sturdy
Cons: It doesn't work at all? Waste of time and money? USB Device Not Recognized. Windows 7 Ultimate 32 and x64 and Ubuntu 9.10 all have the same response. Also, it randomly seems to start moving the heads in the drive around.. I swear, if this thing ruined the drive..... >_<
