PNY GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 VCG84512D3SXPB 512MB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: It worked

Cons: Slower than my onboard card. My windows index went from 6.3 to 4.5 or something like that. Couldn't even handle Chess Titans on Windows on the highest quality setting without sluggishness. Handles second highest quality.

Other Thoughts: I don't game, so I didn't test it with that. I bought it because my CAD software doesn't like my onboard NIC. This is probably worth the money, but I was expecting more.

5 out of 5 eggs Works with Linux too 05/16/2007

This review is from: SimpleTech STI-NAS/250 250GB SimpleShare Network Attached Storage

Pros: It's NAS, and it works with Windows (blah) and Linux (yeh!). That is just freaking awesome. Compact. Easy setup despite the lack of detailed documentation.

Cons: I don't think all of my indicator lights work on the front. Had a scratch on the case. Documentation blows (Here is a good review with some valuable info: /)
Could only get this to work on a private network, not a public one. I could hit the NAS on the public network, but it would never accept my password until I moved it back to the private network.

Other Thoughts: Only issue I had was getting NFS to show up, but it was a firewall issue. I couldn't seem to find the correct ports to open up, so I stuck it in my DMZ and it worked fine.

One thing to keep in mind, when mounting the share via nfs on linux use the following syntax:
mount -t nfs <server.ip.add>:/share/<poolname>/<sharename>

If you don't use /share/<poolname> you will go nuts.
