Pros: I love the system, fast as get all. I am very happy with the hardware, no issues at all
Cons: Intel Support SUCKS. When I go to download the software bundle from Intel the key provided does not work (The key is the system serial number) When I open a support ticket they refuse to resolve the issue saying they need a screenshot of the system serial number, invoice and a copy of the master key provided with the system. I give them everything I have (I scanned the serial number from the box with the serial number on it, I also scanned the insert telling me where to download the software and to use the system serial number. Now they do not even respond. If I would have known that Intel was going to treat a paying customer this way I probably would have purchased something else (Part of the reason I purchased this system was the software bundle).
Overall Review: No I do not recommend this item until Intel gets its support up to speed and treats the customers properly. If they decide to resolve the issues satisfactorily and may boost my rating
Pros: Cost was reasonable, they work just as advertised, Used these to replace failed drives in a Dual Drive NAS after 1 failed and I decided to upgrade the space from 2-1Tb drives to 2-2Tb drives. They work flawlessly. Just plug play, set up for the NAS and go!
Overall Review: I would definitely reccomend these for use in a NAS any time
Pros: Very good monitor for the price, built in speakers that are very good for a business setting (lower volume, but very crisp and clear)
Cons: None so far
Pros: Works great
Great length for a Brix System attached to the back of a monitor
Cons: No Cons
Overall Review: great cable at a great price
easy interface for scanning
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: Got this printer on sale as I had an earlier Canon Printer with an external Print Server. I decided to upgrade to a printer MFP with an internal wired and wireless print server and I couldn't be happier. Easy to use and great quality prints. For a home office this is the best!!!
Pros: has IDE and Floppy headers, reasonably priced, performs well
Overall Review: Usually I am a Gigabyte or MSI guy. Usually I would use an ASRock for a basics computer. This one however has blown me away. It performs very well and gives me high marks on the SciSoft Sandra benchmarks. Allows me to use my Raid backplane (4 1TB drives in a RAID 5 Array) and has all the bells and whistles to make me haapy. Way to go! ASRock
Pros: Easy to use, great resolution, good software suite, VISTA Compatible without a hitch
Cons: didn't get this scanner earlier
Pros: This is a great Server Case. The ability to use the raid cage for hot swapping drives is fantastic. Very good cooling. very well constructed.
Cons: Somewhat cramped
Overall Review: This is not for a novice builder. This is for the experienced builder wanting to build a monster system or server.
If you use the right powersupply with this bad boy you will have a first class system
Pros: Great Board, easy to set up and use, loads ZVista Ultimate (2GB Ram, 256 Mb PCI-e 16 video) 2 500 gb SATA in Raid 0, XP dual core 5600+, SATA 18 X DVD RW) did not have any hang up at all!
Cons: cannot use a Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live audio card as it uses the old PCI voltage standard. Memory slots can be broken by a clumsy installer
Overall Review: I love this board. it blows everything else away. When using Vista you have to run some utilities in compatibility mode (XP -SP2 mode)
Pros: Good display, inexpensive
Cons: As per MSI Website. Note: Due to on-board memory architecture, this video card does not support dual monitors. I will support one monitor on either the D-Sub or DVI, and one display from the S-Video, but will not support both D-Sub and DVI monitors at the same time.
Overall Review: New Egg please adjust the specifications for this card
