Intel Ceritfied

Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Intel Certified Server Memory Model KVR667D2D8F5/2GI
Kingston ValueRAM 2GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM ECC Fully Buffered DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Intel Certified Server Memory Model KVR667D2D8F5/2GI

Pros: This is the Intel Certified version of the memory. It works. If you need to boy more on the future, it will be available. It will always keep the same specs. If you ever have to call to Intel for RMA or tech support, the first question is "are you using certified memory?". Well, this is the one

Cons: Not the cheapest one out there,

Software has issues, only 4 cameras

Zmodo ZMD-DR-SFN6 16 x BNC 16 Channel H.264 D1 DVR VGA 3G Remote View Access No HDD Surveillance System
Zmodo ZMD-DR-SFN6 16 x BNC 16 Channel H.264 D1 DVR VGA 3G Remote View Access No HDD Surveillance System

Pros: It seems like a good unit. The design is ok and the options on the unit are acceptable.

Cons: Nevertheless, remote software is not. The DVRNET software only allows for 4 cameras at the time. The option for the 9 and 16 cameras is greyed out. Also, the software seem to crash after 15 minutes, both in XP and Windows 7. There is no place on their web site to download an updated version of the software. The plug in for IE has the same weakness (can only display 4 cameras at the same time). There is nothing on the unit that point to the possibility that this is a limitation on the linux side (i.e. not on the software client, on the machine itself). Hope I get this problems addressed, if not I will be forced to send the unit back.

Overall Review: Why 16 ports if remotely you can only see 4 at the time?

Best laptop mouse ever

Microsoft M20-00001 Silver 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical Notebook Mouse
Microsoft M20-00001 Silver 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical Notebook Mouse

Pros: Great mouse for a laptop. Small, light, great feeling and reliable. Yes, it's wired (1.5 ft) but wired mice are much nicer. They are smaller and don't need batteries. Also, they are easier to carry around with the laptop as you are tethered

Cons: probably soon to be discontinued

64 Bit OEM

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: It is the best value edition of Windows 7. Still missing some functionality from pro and ultimate (mostly shadow copy).

Cons: OEM means that the sticker has to be attached to the case. OEM means that motherboards cannot be upgraded (only changed to another with the same functionality)
