This review is from: Loaded Gear HD-100 Hard Case

Pros: Relatively compact, relatively clean internal configuration, high quality motherboard and power supply, good selection of front ports.
Cons: This case is very minimal. not cheap, just very, very basic. The hard drive mounting is very primitive, and there are absolutely no frills like mounting for 2.5" hard drives, etc. The included cable management accessories are nice, but that's it. Since none of the CPUs designed for this barebones come with included heatsinks you'd better add at least an additional $60 or so to get proper heatsinks.
N82E16816101683 is the Supermicro specified part, listed under "optional accessories" At time of review this adds an additional $90 to this barebones.
Other Thoughts: While the photos on NewEgg do indicate that heatsinks aren't included the images on Supermicro's site are very misleading. Additionally I've purchased dozens of Supermicro barebones server and workstation kits and I can't remember a single one that was designed to work with server-class CPUs that didn't include the required heatsink solution. This is a bad trend!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft LifeCam HD-3000 for Business USB 2.0 WebCam
Pros: Pretty small, good adjustability and build quality. Reasonable picture quality for the price.
Cons: Automatically installs cr@pware. Absolutely refuses to run more than 4 at once. Running more than 2 at once is difficult
Other Thoughts: I purchased 15 of these from Newegg for a client. We were setting up an installation and needed many small, easily positioned webcams at a reasonable price that could do pretty good 720p video. These seemed like they would do very nicely. Their picture quality is fine, and their form factor and build quality is very good. They do, however automatically attempt to install a bloated and useless software suite whenever you plug them in to a computer with automatic driver updates enabled. It doesn't even give you a choice, despite the fact that Windows 7 comes with a driver included.
The software makes it very difficult to run multiple instances of this webcam on the same computer, an issue shared by many other Microsoft cams it seems from my testing.
I realize this is hardly a common application, and shouldn't dissuade most buyers, but if you do have such an application, the contemporary Logitech devices of the same price don't suffer this issue. These are more ergonomic though.
