This review is from: Samsung NX2000 Mirrorless Digital Camera with 20-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Lens (White)
Pros: Has SLR-class functionality
Cons: Too compact - the camera body is difficult to grip when attempting to cradle the lens while holding the body abd shutter button
All functions are made through touch screen interface rather than discreet buttons found typically on an SLR body. Making manual adjustments are at the mercy of menus.
Other Thoughts: Takes amazing low light photos for the price. 20 MP gives a lot of extra freedom for composition choices. Has decent noise reduction at higher ISOs. Make sure you switch from jpg to RAW out of the box.
I got this camera for a 3 day backpacking trip, and so far it appears to be perfect for the intended use.
This review is from: ASRock FM2A55M-HD+ FM2+ / FM2 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Solid Board
Cons: I/O Shield could be prettier
Other Thoughts: Everything fit well. The I/O Shield wasn't as nice as the ASRock A88X ITX mobo's shield I used in a build last month, but that's only aesthetic.
I had used 2133 RAM but it read as 1600, so I was able to easily fix that in the UEFI utility.
Overall, as long as you get the features you need, I find ASRock makes good mobos.
Pros: - Brushed-look aluminum case
- Dark colored tempered glass
- Decent airflow layout
- Detachable 2.5" SSD trays
- Full size ATX PSU left plenty of room below to bundle unused cables even if someone didn't use a modular PSU.
- Screws supplied for PSU is minimalistic in design and match well with case if visible.
- 130mm Clearance for CPU Fan/Heatsink was more than enough for Cooler Master GeminII S524 (left me about 1" space between the fan and glass)
- I can hide a Flirc inside the case and still use an IR remote since it's glass.
- Glass helps muffle the noise better than a thin aluminum/steel/plastic case.
- LOOKS AMAZING IN MY HOME THEATER SETUP
Cons: HDD cage trays rattled while assembling PC, so I removed them. I'm not using a HDD since I will be using a NAS, so I figured I'll remove any potential noise-makers. I don't know if they would be more silent when loaded.
SSD Trays leave little space to attach power/SATA cables if you don't use one with a right angle.
Other Thoughts: This has a slim optical drive slot already wired, just needs to have a drive plugged in.
