Expensive Disposable Junk Printer9/27/2011 1:12:27 PM

Pros: I can throw it away.

Cons: Went through 2 print heads, and lots of ink trying to "realign cartridge". Won't print color without smearing the first page, or at all on the 2nd page. Engineered for EARLY FAILURE, and EXPENSIVE INK. Do not buy.

Best $100 I ever threw away.11/10/2010 8:27:54 AM

Pros: Great way to spend a weekend debugging memory compatibility if you didn't have anything planned.

Cons: Spend 20 hours and $500 buying hardware to debug this board, and a M4A79T from Asus. Several calls to rude tech support (the guy did at least know what parts of a computer as he listed every possible part as "I'm pretty sure x is the problem") 2 RMA's later, I threw this board away and bought a MSI 890GXM-G65. Booted no problems, and Ubuntu 10.10 Linux compatible. Best $100 I ever threw away - because I've stopped debugging my computer and now get to use it.

So far so good10/2/2010 9:39:59 AM

Pros: Put this in a windows xp box to speed up Virtualbox virtual machines it suited the task. Very fast.

Cons: Too expensive and small to be part of a regular build item. Either less expensive, or more capacity at that price point.

Only works with IE7/12/2010 8:35:42 PM

Pros: Cheap? Not really.

Cons: Only works with IE web browser. No firefox, no chrome. No Linux. Lazy software development to build a marginal product. Oh, and don't worry about the constantly flashing red light, that means it's working.

Works ootb with Ubuntu 10.046/23/2010 9:16:01 AM

Pros: Attracitve design - no-clasp lid Good keyboard Works ootb on Ubuntu 10.04 - wireless, audio, mic, webcam, all good Screen colors were a bit meh, but tweaked them using ATI driver. Now great Light compared to my old DV9000 Ubuntu 10.04 with SSD boots in 7 seconds from pressing power on Upgrading to 8gb memory

Cons: Another copy of windows... Ehh... thanks... No really... Do you still have the return receipt?

Overall Review: Not a Dell (cheated my girlfriend with "pink" laptop that couldn't run the vista they sold on it), Not a HP (broken hinges, overheating graphics chips). To upgrade from my old HP DV9000 to new Acer, all I had to do was move the hard drive over. Nice! Thank you Linux.

Does what it says on the tin. Works with Ubuntu linux.6/20/2010 4:46:31 PM

Pros: Works great. Works on Ubuntu Linux without driver shenanagans. Plug and go.

Cons: Kinda large to hang off a USB port. Bought and recommend a USB extension cable to improve reception and ease stress on port.

Better than cans and string5/21/2010 7:11:06 AM

Pros: I've had 3 of these. The first one was great, until it wasn't. The next two have been terrible. Was there a manufacturing change? Anyways, it works, has a stylish charging case, and is better than shouting at my phone.

Cons: Poor quality audio. Poor quality noise reduction.

Flicker Problem.4/30/2010 7:50:25 AM

Pros: Inexpensive. A deal right? :-P

Cons: 4 months after purchase, got the flicker problem described elsewhere in the reviews. RMA for repairs.

Overall Review: Called 812-282-2787, talked to cust service rep Sonya, got RMA in under 5 minutes. Sonya was professional, courteous, and a great communicator. Happy with the cust service so far, not happy with the monitor.

Screen flicker -> Died4/29/2010 10:32:06 PM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Cheap. Bought 2. 1 died of the "screen flicker". Google "asus vh242h screen flicker" for details. In the end, this cheapy will probably cost me more in time than money.

Meh...11/11/2009 12:35:08 AM

Pros: Price is good

Cons: I can't get color correction right on Ubuntu 9.10. Blues and greens meld together. Installed the ICM file in the windows driver. Lame. Also, styrofoam packaging is bad for environment. Where environment = "my office" and "bad" = tiny little flecks of styrofoam all over the place. Up the colors and packaging.

Nice mobo11/9/2009 5:14:29 PM

Pros: Lots of nice little extras on this mobo make it a pleasure to work with. Board goes that last 5%. Example: Instead of making the installer connect all the dinky power/reset connectors directly to the board, the mobo supplies a pin-through "shim". Plug all connectors into shim, then plug as a unit into mobo. Simple, cheap, brilliant - that last 5%. Power and reset switches on the mobo. Classy.

Cons: None to speak of. I've been to lazy to figure out exact settings in BIOS so Ubuntu 9.10 can auto-manage CPU fan, but that's me. 6 DIMM slots would have been nice - 6 2gig modules. But lots of things would be nice :-)

Overall Review: Mike likes!

Cons: None to speak of. So far so good.

A freakin pleasure to work with11/9/2009 5:05:39 PM

Pros: Attractive Easy to work with Lots of spare nuts and etc.
