well priced X299 with good feature set7/9/2017 1:23:36 PM

Pros: 2x M.2 slots, one with heat spreader Intel LAN RGB Good price vs features Effortless overclock, 7740X at 4.8ghz via 1.248v Dedicated pump header Decent software Good diagnostic LEDs

Cons: wish there was a micro atx but I guess theres not enough room for the dimm slots weird dimm config if you are in single channel with a kaby lake- be sure to double check manual no wifi (but helps keep cost down)

Overall Review: Good solid OC board for 100 less than many others

Excellent low priced C236 board with 3x PCI-e 16x size slots12/22/2016 5:03:15 PM

Pros: - 3 pci-e x16 length slots, I have a geforce gtx 1050, quad port nic, and LSI SAS HBA in mine - good bios interface and built in EFI (for flashing HBA etc) - shipped with latest bios installed

Cons: - single NIC, would basically be perfect board with another intel nic - would be nice to have ipmi but again good to keep price down - x1 slots are just not useful for anything really, maybe have just one x4 or something - no SLI, do not buy this board for SLI, but it will work fine for OpenCL type stuff where the cards run independent

Overall Review: By far the best Skylake Xeon workstation board I can find anywhere, for a very reasonable price. I am going to buy a spare after xmas. If you are used to stoneage super micro bios this bios will blow you away

great small nas, fantastic os7/1/2012 9:26:25 PM

Pros: Best NAS OS available; decent speed and price

Cons: Cheap plastic housing, needs front USB ports

Overall Review: I have used Buffalo, QNAP, Nexenta, and several Linux based NAS distros and nothing compares to Synology DSM.

Buyer Beware1/4/2011 10:05:56 PM

Pros: OEM Rampage II Gene motherboard and great deal on the parts; Delta 500w PSU not too bad

Cons: Motherboard lacks SLI and RAID capability in BIOS; very poor cooling in the case; very poor assembly

Overall Review: My vid card was loose and the system bluescreened out of the box. If you are not prepared to rebuild this machine do not buy it. I have it running in an Antec Mini P180 and it works like a champ. Unbeatable deal.

Best deal out there12/17/2010 7:17:52 PM

Pros: 1. Surprisingly good performance from the CULV 2. screen is not that bad- typical low end laptop 3. build quality 4. 2 dimm slots 5. price

Cons: Glossy screen, a little hot on the underside under load

Overall Review: Agree with the reviewer that said to get this instead of a netbook, no reason to compromise on performance when a CULV only uses 10 watts. If it had, say, a geforce 210M it would be perfect.

Solid budget board11/1/2010 1:37:57 PM

Pros: Cheap X58 board with USB3, plenty of SATA ports, one PCI for my wifi card, rock solid so far

Cons: no 12 phase power, 90 degree sata ports difficult to use in an Antec Solo

Overall Review: Zero issues with an i7-950 and Kingston HyperX 1600mhz DDR3; best budget X58 board IMHO

Better value than Das Keyboard2/9/2010 9:49:56 PM

Pros: Better value than Das Keyboard; 3 year warranty

Cons: Takes a little while to get used to slightly different stroke style.

Overall Review: I have had 2 Das Keyboards fail just outside their warranty so I was looking for something cheaper. This is almost as good for less than half the price, with a 3 year warranty! No brainer for me and I will be buying another.

Fast and cheap11/24/2009 10:45:25 PM

Pros: FAST, beats Synology in smallnetbuilder tests; shares everything via CIFS/AFP/DLNA; simple user management and authentication; open design permits WHS etc.

Cons: Straight up NAS only- no web server, torrents, etc. Requires IE for firmware update (only have to do this once though). May not be updated in the future due to EMC buying Iomega and putting Lifeline on Iomega devices. Web management only, no SSH built in.

Overall Review: If you don't need hot swap drives this should be a no-brainer. Note that you MUST remove the boot sectors (fdisk /mbr) on drives before installing them.

Doesn't charge 2nd Gen Nano6/20/2009 1:54:09 PM

Pros: Screen is nice, many mounting options, sound quality is fine via aux, includes all cables

Cons: Doesn't charge my 2nd gen nano, I have to unplug it and charge it with a separate griffin charger, so I can only use it for a few hours, killed my nano the first time I used it because I didn't realize it wouldn't charge (had to restore and reload all files)

Overall Review: If other people are using it successfully it must charge certain ipod models

Performs its (limited) function2/7/2009 11:13:35 PM

Pros: Simple wireless backup of OSX boxes. Excellent 802.11n performance. Quick and easy Apple setup application.

Cons: Inflexible configuration and pathetic archiving function. Proprietary setup application (no web server).

Overall Review: Don't buy this if you expect to hack it or do ANYTHING other than use it as a wireless Time Machine target.

Origin seems to vary3/22/2008 5:58:18 PM

Pros: You might get Singapore discs; price is decent

Cons: You might get Indian discs; shipping

Overall Review: I got Indian discs and they have errors on verification frequently, seems to be a crapshoot with the 3gg on this product.

Nice Unit, Buggy Firmware2/25/2008 4:58:46 AM

Pros: Great construction and performance per watt for the price. Nice selection of network services - BT client etc. Ran fine for a week until I turned on the "twonky" media server. Quick shipping from newegg.

Cons: The TS-209 filled its flash drive with the twonky DB, lost its disk config, broke my RAID, and then reverted to 1.0 (builtin) firmware. I had to back it up and start from scratch. Deplorable QA on the firmware.

Overall Review: Be sure to update to the "beta" firmware _ASAP_. The release firmware is dangerously unstable due to the known Twonky bug. You have to register on the QNAP forum to get it.

Spoke too soon!12/1/2005 12:54:28 AM

Pros: Worked for a week. See previous review.

Cons: Not 48 hours after my previous positive review I power down the system, disconnect the monitor, use it on another machine, then reconnect it and try to power up. Board dead. PSU tests fine and I know all my other components are fine since I bought an Abit mobo retail to bring the system back up. RMAing this one.
