areca ARC-1110 PCI-X 64bit/133MHz SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card
areca ARC-1110 PCI-X 64bit/133MHz SATA II (3.0Gb/s) Controller Card

Pros: I bought this card for use with FreeBSD 6.1. It works flawlessy. Areca even provides a command line tool (for FreeBSD 4.x and 5.x - but seems to work fine in 6.x) to manage the array.

Cons: None.

works well

Pros: Works well with OpenBSD, Opensolaris, Windows, Linux supports ECC RAM Corporate stable boards aren't retired nearly as quickly as Asus's other boards

Cons: none

works well with Fostex FR2-LE

Pros: Works flawlessly with my Fostex FR2-LE CF recorder. It's fast enough to record two channels at 88Khz in 24bit. I have a transcend card that is cheaper, but I had a strange problem with that card in a recent concert. I've recorded twice with the sandisk and have had no problems.

Cons: None

works well... very small

Pros: Works with no issues. I haven't tried overclocking, though. They are low profile, and consequently - quite small.

Cons: No heat spreaders... but that would just make them bulkier

it works

ASUS T3-P5G965 Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G965 Barebone
ASUS T3-P5G965 Intel Socket T(LGA775) Intel G965 Barebone

Pros: It's fairly quiet, and fairly flexible. I'm running OpenBSD 4.3 on it, with an intel PCI-E gigabit card in the PCI-E 16 slot, and a dual port intel 10/100 nic in the pci slot. It seems to be very stable, once I replaced the defective power supply. No crashes so far. It's fairly quiet, too.

Cons: It did not post at first. I swapped out the power supply, and that solved the problem. I'm very disappointed that ASUS couldn't be bothered to see if the box would even post before sending it out the door.

works well for audio recordings

Transcend 8GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS8GCF133

Pros: I use it in a Fostex FR2-LE to record live concerts. No issues to report after 3 concerts. At 133x, it's not very fast, but it's fast enough to record 2 channels at 96khz in 24bit with no issues.

Cons: None so far.
