Pros: Solid construction. Fits a full size ATX PSU. Lots of room for extra Hard drives.
Cons: I wish it would have included a 120mm filter for the intake fan, easy remedy though.
The front panel USB 3.0 cables are a bit long and hard to manage.
Overall Review: Make sure to check your dimensions, if you are going to buy a CPU tower cooler. I am using the "DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm GABRIEL CPU Cooler", which just barley fits under the PSU. I am not using a water cooler, which I think this case was meant for, since the front part of the case is pretty much empty.
Pros: BIOs config is easy and enjoyable.
Overall Review: Using this on a Linux Build, no problems. Instructions and Manual are top notch.
Pros: Great power efficiency for this GPU. The form factor is small, so it fit great in my Mini-ITX build. Does not require an external Power Supply Connection, all power routed through the Mother Board.
Overall Review: Not the fastest GPU around, but depending on your build goals this unit is great. I wanted a low power, decent number of CUDA cores Nvidea GPU and this was the ticket. I am using it for some number crunching on a Mini-ITX build.
Pros: Easy Install. Low Power.
Overall Review: This unit does not come with a SATAIII cable, so make sure to pick one up.
Pros: As advertised. The Fan is very quite. Good power efficiency.
Cons: Not really a problem, I was a little surprised that it only comes with one 4-pin ATX CPU plug. (Normally, you get a 24pin ATX and two 4-pin ATX plugs). This only matters if you are running a power hungry CPU. Which you probably would have bought a bigger PS anyways.
Overall Review: As mentioned, this is a 300W PS which comes with a single 4-pin ATX CPU connector. I am using this on a Intel low power 65W CPU, so it works great for me. If you are running a bigger CPU, this will not work for you.
Pros: Solid construction.
Overall Review: Bought two DIMMs for a Mini-ITX server build. The CAS latency is pretty good for this series of RAM. The heatsink is low profile, so you don't have to worry about overhead dimensions.
Pros: Fits into a Cooler Master 130 Mini-ITX case with a Mini-ITX motherboard. Easy to install.
Cons: The fan attachment clips are pretty flimsy, but work fine.
Overall Review: I am using this in a Mini-ITX build. Space was paramount and this heatsink/fan combo barely fits, but it does!
If you are using this on a Mini-ITX motherboard, then make sure to buy all your RAM now... The heatsink totally goes over both DIMM slots, so you will not be able to install any RAM after the heatsink is in place. I think the 120mm fan is a little overboard, I am using it on a 65W low power Intel CPU, so my temperature is below 40C at all times.
Pros: Easy setup and firmware update. Gigabit speeds. Metal Case.
Cons: I wish their was a little more documentation built into the online setup.
Pros: Good signal quality. Easy Setup. Good Status Indicators.
Cons: Best I could get on the same electrical circuit was 80Mbps.
Overall Review: Overall it is a good product. I am able to stream from a roku device in a remote portion of the house. I tried to place a swictch on the receiver side and split to a Wifi AP, but the 80Mbps really limits this. This is not a fault on the product.
Pros: Works really well. Control of the pan/tilt is good. Night Vision works well. No problems maintaining a connection (see below for WiFi fix).
Cons: Pain to setup (about 2 hours). Needed to remove a lock-nut washer to maintain a good WiFi connection. The WiFi settings are kind of misleading. If you like to have your WiFi router setup for non-broadcast you may have to temporary change and let the IPcamera setup automatically.
Overall Review: The WiFi did not work out of the box. It could not maintain a connection or find networks. The problem is that the antenna does not make a good connection. To fix, simply remove the gold "lock nut washer" and screw the antenna back in. Also, make sure to setup your WiFi router for broadcast SSID and do the "auto" configure on the IPCamera (the setup parameters are not as expected, I think this has to do with the Chinese to English translation). Afterwards, you can setup your WiFi router to non-broadcast and use the settings that you just captured.
Pros: Works great with Synology Diskstation
Pros: Ground LED lets you know of connection problems in house wiring.
Cons: A little bulky. I don't think the phone isolation is necessary anymore.
Pros: Good signal coverage
Easy to setup
Good connection, once configured
Cons: Dual SSID does not work that well
DHCP passthrough does not work that well
Overall Review: I bought two of these units for a small office. I was hoping to configure them so that the master router would still act as the DHCP host. I had all sorts of latency problems using this configuration. Ended up setting the units up to be DHCP hosts, and this solved the problem. The dual SSID is only useful if you have an advanced router, which can do the heavy lifting of subnet delegation.
Pros: We use this printer for a 5 person office. It is great! It has all the features we need. I especially like the "scan to e-mail" feature. Everything is pretty easy to setup (< 3 hours) for all the networking and e-mail setup. Ink is available at local stores (Staples).
Cons: For our purposes none. Like I said if you are a small business (< 15 people) and print less then 150 pages a day this is the printer for you.
Pros: Pretty much does it all.
Cons: My only beef is not with Synology, but I keep getting port scanned attacked from my DDNS. Thankfully, the unit comes with IP-block, so in about 50 years, I'll have all the Chinese IP addresses blocked :)
Pros: Good looking.
Cons: OK, so I went the cheap route and tried to use 2 of these (N750) for a small business as access points. Long story short, that effort did not pay off.
First off, the "routing" capability of the N750 is very limited! No separate LANs or VLANs. In addition, no separate VLANs for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. There is no DHCP passthrough, so you have to use a hardware hack of disabling DHCP on the N750 and and connecting the main router to the LAN of the N750. Yikes!
In addition, the multiple SSID is sort of a joke. If you want to segregate the guest network there is no ability to setup a routing table, so you are forced to only use the WAN, which sucks if you are trying to do DHCP passthrough (read above).
Like I said, I might have been trying to use the N750 for a purpose it was not designed, but come on, they call it a "High Performance" Wireless Router. It is lacking features that my 12 year old Linksys router has!
Overall Review: Just exchanged for the D-Link DAP-2553 for about the same price.
