Heavy Duty Steel Mount

Rosewill RHMS-11004 - 13" - 27" Flat-Panel Monitor Tilt Mounting Kit
Rosewill RHMS-11004 - 13" - 27" Flat-Panel Monitor Tilt Mounting Kit

Pros: Definitely an industrial quality mount that is built to withstand some abuse. 1/4" bolts hold the mount in place at the joints, and the assortment of screws provided show accommodate any VESA compliant monitor.

Cons: Wish that it would have come with locking washers, as my application will not be on a mobile pole on wheels, but no one ever provides them on any mount I have installed.

Overall Review: Using this devise and two trellis O clamps to mount a 22in Monitor to a high quality IV pole on wheels as part of my karaoke show. The end cost for me was just under $50 for the mount, clamps, and a used IV Pole on CraigsList, which was far cheaper than the $100 low quality retail stand.

Affordable Virus Protection for our Household

Overall Review: Just stay on this purchase except for the fact that it provided 10 computers that we have and 5 cell phones with fire protection at a very reasonable cost. I don't have much practical experience with a product at this time exceptionally installation I'm running a couple of backups. Everything's working fine at this time

Great Product, Poor Communication

Pros: This is a great product, pulled down the codes in my Ford Windstar, and Dodge Caravan. Directions were excellent and although the software that accompanied the product was very limited, it does the job perfectly

Cons: Only downside was the seller communication. First, they sent me the wrong tracking code, 2) the package stated that it was delivered in CA (I live in FL), 3) sent the seller an email, explaining that I never got the package. In the end the package arrived 4 days later, but I never got a response from the seller. I can't even tell if the package that arrived was because of the seller remedying the issue.

Excellent Compact System for a Windows8 Customer Preview

Foxconn nT435H-0h0w-B-A-NA Intel NM10 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: Great system with some small glitches. Incredibly small form factor, with a VESA mount. Fully compatible with Win8, with no drivers required. Installed and had a fully operational OS in just under 2 hours. Windows Performance Rating 2.5 based on Processor Calculations Per Second Performance. Other scores: RAM = 4.9, GPU = 3.5, GPU Gaming = 3.0, HD = 5.1. This is a really good Office / Web terminal, and not a gaming unit, even solitaire plays incredibly jittery.

Cons: There were a couple of issues, 1) as a previous buyer had mentioned, the CPU fan was not fully plugged in and caused the workstation to heat up quickly as I was just letting it burn in. This was a simple fix, but you need to aware that a plastic case may get work, but should not get HOT. If so, make sure that the CPU fan is spinning, in if not follow the wires to the connector, then unplug and plug back in. 2) We had a major issue with the stability of the WLAN card, however, I am not sure if this is the hardware or the compatibility with Win8. Although the OS recognizes the card and will connect to our network, we often see lockup and dropping connectivity with our Network, and 2 others that we are in range of. Used wired connection for the installation, but have plenty of USB adapters with connectivity.

Overall Review: Web performance, Office 10 is good, and a great office workstation for doing remote desktop to manage a small server farm. As mentioned in a previous review, I chose the Kingston ValueRAM 4gb Model KVR1066D3S7/4G, and installed a 250mb 2.5in laptop drive that I had laying around the house. Total cost for this workstation was $113 bucks. This is not a gaming performance WS, but it has proven to be stable for the past week. Once the Win8 preview is over, we will revert back to Win7 Home Premium. Still plan to use it as a remote karaoke terminal, and the station does a great job for that purpose.

Good Quality RAM for Foxconn nT435H

Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model KVR1066D3S7/4G
Kingston 4GB 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Laptop Memory Model KVR1066D3S7/4G

Pros: Great memory, met specs from the site, rated a 4.9 on the Windows8 Customer Preview, compatible. Incredibly simple installation.

Cons: CAS7, wish it were a 5, but not really a con, as it matches the specs exactly.

Overall Review: Use the Kingston website memory to choose the RAM for my new FoxConn NetTop. According to the Kingston website it is compatible with this model using the following options on the product configuration tool. Memory -> System Specific Memory -> Foxconn -> NetTop -> nT435H. Worked immediately upon installation.

Perfect Cheap SD Card

Team 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TG008G0SD26X

Pros: Simply put a cheap SD RAM card that shipped for $7.

Cons: Write speed meet specs, but are not blazingly fast.

Overall Review: For my purposes, I only needed for read performance, and a one time write for a professional DJ mp3 player. Will work fine for any MP3, or 8mp digital camera.
