Most Favorable Review

I need another one

Rosewill RSD-CR106 Blue USB 2.0 External Single slot SD / MMC Card Reader
Rosewill RSD-CR106 Blue USB 2.0 External Single slot SD / MMC Card Reader

Pros: This reader is great. Just like most readers they don't last long, about 6 months for me, but this one has lasted the longest. The case is all broken and taped together and I am missing one cap and the other is barley holding together with tape. However, this reader has saved me by allowing me to lock my SD card when working on customers computers. I hope these come back. I can't even find one on Am@zon. Next time I see them I am going to buy 10 so I have spares.

Cons: None

Write protect doesn't work

IMC IMC-black USB 2.0 Card Reader

Pros: None

Cons: Its really cheap, The caps fall off in your pocket and the reader ignores the write protect switch on SD cards. Its completly worthless.

Not a bad board

ASUS Prime A320M-K AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 HDMI VGA M.2 Micro-ATX A320 Motherboard
ASUS Prime A320M-K AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 HDMI VGA M.2 Micro-ATX A320 Motherboard

Pros: Seems to work well. But check to make sure memory is tested for this board. Memory compatibility isn't good.

Cons: - memory compatibility as mentioned above. -- make sure your memory is on the tested memory list. If it's not it will probably not work. That tip would have saved me a week of troubleshooting and an RMA of what we believed was a bad board. -the ryzen chips do not have onboard video so the video ports are worthless unless you use one of the APU chips instead. Not really a ding because it's by design. Hopefully AMD will add APUs in future ryzen chips. Who knows. -windows 7 support is bad. It's very difficult to set up. Tip- use a ps2 mouse until you get the drivers installed. Also Microsoft will disable updates in Windows 7 on this platform unless you use an unsupported patch. Might not be worth the headache. Windows 10 seems to work fine. Microsoft is strong arming us yet again.

Overall Review: It really is a good board. I only gave it 4 stars primarily because of the bad memory compatibility. The other negatives where just an FYI. Hopefully ASUS will increase the memory compatibility over time with bios updates. However, that doesn't help us now. Just make sure you only buy memory from the tested memory list on ASUSs website. Most of Neweggs DDR4 isn't on the list. <- this was a really annoying problem.

I really wanted to like this case.

LOGISYS Computer CS6802BK Black SGCC Micro ATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W Power Supply
LOGISYS Computer CS6802BK Black SGCC Micro ATX Slim Case Computer Case 350W Power Supply

Pros: Its a nice looking case with USB3 in the front panel. All the components fit well inside.

Cons: I don't honestly know where to begin. So I will simply make a list. * Only 1 SATA power connector * Front USB ports upside down * No case fan * Power cords 3x to long * header wires 3x to long * very cheap feel

Overall Review: I honestly don't have the time to write reviews and rarely do but this case was SOOOO bad I had to. I seriously wanted to like this case. However, I would say the one deal breaker is the single SATA power connector. I mean come on are you serious?

You have got to be kidding me

Pros: Nice small device.

Cons: The IP address on this device is set to static rather then DHCP. worse its set to 192.168.0.1. This is the most common IP address that routers use. In order to change it I had to hook up a spair router. This is a complete hassle that could be cured by just shipping the device with a DHCP address. This way it can easily be changed with the web interface.

Nice case but kind of cheap

APEVIA X-QPACK-BL/420 Black/Blue Aluminum Micro ATX Desktop Computer Case 420W Power Supply
APEVIA X-QPACK-BL/420 Black/Blue Aluminum Micro ATX Desktop Computer Case 420W Power Supply

Pros: Very good looking case. The inside is tight but very organized and well ventilated. It looks great siting on my bench. I am very happy with the look of this case. It is also very quiet. There is also amazing support from Apevia. When I called I didn't even get a phone system, they picked the phone right up. They where also very helpful in trying to make me happy, which I am.

Cons: Poor quality. This case was manufactured to be very cheap. However, the price does not reflect that. The price is about double what cases of much better quality go for. When I assembled this case the power button wires pulled right off the switch. I had to solder those back on which wasn’t a big deal but I can honestly say that in 20 years of computer experience I have never had that happen to a new case before. Second the LCD display had a bad sending unit for the CPU temperature. I called Apevia and they immediately sent me another one. However, the replacement had a bad HDD sending unit. I will more then likely make one working unit out of the two. Finally there is only one SATA power connector. This is completely stupid in my opinion. I had to use 3 adapters just to install my hard drives.

Overall Review: The only other thing I think I should mention is that there is absolutely no room for a large heat-sink. Its to bad because there is lots of room above the CPU and a big CPU cooler would look great though the window on this case. However, the inside supports as well as the pull out motherboard tray will not allow a cooler much bigger then the factory one. I may try to use a Zalman flower style cooler. As a final note I am not trying to discourage anyone from buying this case. I am just telling you the way it is. Its honestly a great looking case and once assembled it works great. However, there are some downsides. Personally I think this case should be at a lower price point. It would make more since if it was around $49.99 rather then $89.99.
