2M MHL Micro USB To HDMI HDTV Cable Adapter For Samsung Galaxy Note3 N9000 AC164

1 out of 5 eggs Not quite what I wanted 10/11/2014

This review is from: 2M MHL Micro USB To HDMI HDTV Cable Adapter For Samsung Galaxy Note3 N9000 AC164

Pros: It works.

Cons: The adapter works, but only at 15fps @ 30Hz.

I wanted one to play games on my TV using a bluetooth controller and watch movies n stuff while on vacation.

Video playback is quite choppy, distractingly so. Using it for web browsing, light computer/tablet use is acceptable. For the price I really can't complain. It was very cheap.

Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials 64B 1-2CPU

3 out of 5 eggs Not sure yet 02/10/2014

This review is from: Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials 64B 1-2CPU

Pros: The price is right. OS install was pretty quick.

Cons: What the heck is the big idea of putting a tablet GUI on a SERVER OS?

Really MS? Give me a break.

It isn't easy to get around in, they've changed everything just enough so that you have to relearn stuff that worked in 2003 and 2008.

I will likely not be selling another server running 2012. It is a pain in the neck to work in.

Other Thoughts: Dear Microsoft,

We don't like the tile interface as the only option.

I will not sell any more MS software that doesn't have a proper desktop interface. You'll probably never notice the drop in sales, but that doesn't change the fact that even my customers that initially liked Windows 8 have sold their new PC and got me to order them refurbs with Windows 7 Pro.

Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory (with Red/Green Light) Model BLT2KIT2G3D1608DT2TXRG

  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Crucial RAM. I've only ever replaced one stick of Crucial RAM due to failure, DOA back in the 90s.

Cons: I didn't realize these had LEDs, my mistake.

The LEDs can be controlled with software to make them not really noticeable.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice to turn off the LEDs entirely, but it isn't that big of a deal as long as it doesn't look like a Christmas tree under someone's desk.
