Pros: NewEgg was the only pro. They were able to send me a new disc. I got it install, the OS isn't too bad. Much different that the Windows 2003 system I upgraded. Definitely great for small business or the advanced home server user.
Cons: The installation media I had originally received was corrupt or had a bad sector. None of the systems I had could read the disc. After contacting NewEgg, they informed me to contact Microsoft. After being transfered 8 times I was told that I had to pay $500 to speak to a tech about exchanging the software disc. Guess I just wasted $400. I got a hold of New Egg again and after a few weeks of emails back and forth, a new install DVD showed up at my door.
Overall Review: Thanks New Egg. You guys are great. Keep up the great work! This is just a reminder of why I keep buying from you guys. Even if its not the lowest price (which almost 99% of the time it is), I'd still buy from New Egg!
Pros: Does what it says. I don't know how you can possibly do worse or better. Fits the Intel SSD drives fine. Works great if you want to properly mount a 2.5" HD.
Overall Review: What do you expect for a $5 piece of plastic reducing 3.5" to 2.5".
Pros: Its Intel, they've always made great products, runs in a pfsense box, very speedy network connection.
Overall Review: Recommend for anyone looking to add another NIC.
Pros: Great DVD-ROM. No issues, purchased this because I was upgrading and rebuilding servers. Since I'm not constantly playing DVDs or install disc based software I just swap it between servers and leave it laying on the shelf till I need it.
Overall Review: Its a great ROM drive for the price, great for servers since most OS is DVD based.
Pros: Great value. Never had an issue, runs great on my little pfsense box. 4GB is a little overkill, but for not even $30 you can't pass it up.
Overall Review: Highly recommended for a cheap, low-end build.
Pros: Great SSD. I use it for a pfsense box, loads up very fast, also runs non-stop, part of the reason I went with SSD.
Overall Review: Highly Recommended.
Pros: I use this on a pfsense router, it runs non-stop and the fan is dead silent. It is in a closet, but if it were used in a living room or bedroom it would be just fine. It works great for what I use it for. It may be a little over kill for pfsense, but its really the best processor for the amount of money you are spending.
Overall Review: Completely recommend. Great for a budget build.
Pros: I've always had great luck with ASRock, and without surprise it has been performing well. I use it as a pfsense board, it constantly runs and never shuts off. Great features, and a very good board for a budget or low end build such as I use it for.
Overall Review: I would completely recommend this board. No issues, runs great!
Pros: I use this case for a pfsense box, so its perfect for what I need. Small form, perfect for shoving on the shelf in the closet. It isn't an eyesore so if it needs to be left in the open it should be no big deal. No problem with cooling, exhaust fan on the rear does great at pulling out what little heat my SSD, 4GB of ram and Intel i3 produce. Power supply seems stable, has been running non-stop for about a month now.
Overall Review: I would totally recommend this case for a small, lightweight build. I would also purchase this again if it fit my specs of what I was building.
Pros: Works great. Using it on my mac and get a constant 80% signal compared to the internal which gets almost nothing.
Cons: Not user friendly with Macs. It took me some time to get the proper mac driver and apps needed to run it. After that it works flawless.
Overall Review: If anyone needs helping getting this to work on mac. You may email me, firstname.lastname@example.org
Pros: Works great. Love it. Can't go wrong with WD.
Overall Review: Want to get another one.
Pros: Works great. Really like it.
Cons: Doesn't work with CentOS 4.4.
Pros: Mobo recognized it. Works great with Fedora and CentOS.
Pros: Great. Works good, starting working with Xen.
Pros: Great. Runs good. Booted up on first shot.
Overall Review: Wish it held more DDR.
Pros: Works great.
Overall Review: Wish I used it more.
Pros: Works good, no problem with printing.
Pros: This memory is very stable. I haven't yet had a problem. It works great and windows sees the full 1 gig.
Overall Review: Wish I had more room for more sticks.
Pros: Nice board. Guide is helpful, great support. Works great.
Overall Review: Wish I would have bought it here.
Pros: Good Processor, works great, def faster than the 2.0 GHz I replaced.
Cons: Video didn't boot, no beep.
Pros: Works great does the job.
Cons: Very easily bent. Must be carefull with. I bent mine trying to install .
Pros: This drive is great. A lot of space.
Pros: This keeps the drives cool and also extends life. Had to purchase after one of my server drives crash due to heat.
Cons: A little noise. Not too bad.
Pros: Very good at keeping the CPU cool. Works great and easy install.
Cons: Fan is a little loud, would not recommend for workstations. I would recommend for servers that run 24X7.
