I LIKE ...
Pros: This type of gizmo is new to me but I love this thing. No problems at all so far. I set up a dandy little network with a P3 as my printer server and to do other little tasks. For what I use it for, it's great! For the cost I'd much rather have this than a USB to parallel cable that may or may not work (going by the reviews). But then again, I have surplus old computers kicking around.
Cons: I guess some of these switches have keystroke switching--it might be handy if you are used to using that feature but it's something I don't miss. The other thing is you have to use a USB mouse and keyboard. That was okay with me.
Overall Review: Why didn't someone tell me before what a KVM switch was? LOL! This is great! If you plan to use this with USB keyboard and mouse and a VGA monitor, I don't think you'll regret it for the cost. If you have the nics, get a crossover cable and have some fun.
Thanks to Asus and Newegg...
Pros: This is a good board--PERIOD! The little things sometimes make the difference and the Q-Connector is a simple but cool innovation if you don't like smashing your nose against a motherboard while connecting wires. If you want a super gaming board, go pay for one. For my money, I'm very pleased!
Cons: It's an MATX, not ATX. There's just not enough room and I wouldn't let go of another $20 for the ATX version. I guess it's time to give up on getting two IDE ports on a board, but it would be nice to have more than two PCI slots. I still love it!
Overall Review: A lot of technology in a small package with lots of cool features and 4 memory slots. As always, fast shipping from Newegg.
