BYTECC BT-2000 USB to PS2 Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs This adapter didn't work for me (Sun Ultra 20) 07/04/2012

This review is from: BYTECC BT-2000 USB to PS2 Adapter

Pros: None

Cons: I tried to use this adapter to hook up a classic Dell PS/2 keyboard to my Sun Ultra 20 workstation. The Ultra 20's an Opteron-based workstation; it's just a PC--nothing proprietary. But this adapter didn't work reliably; it was as though a few keystrokes "made it through," but most were dropped.

PLANAR  PX2710MW  Black  27

5 out of 5 eggs Super clear, consistent, and cheap screens. 07/04/2012

This review is from: PLANAR PX2710MW Black 27" 2ms Full HD HDMI WideScreen LCD Monitor w/Speakers 300 cd/m2 1200:1

Pros: I bought two of these screens for my main workstation, and they're really nice. One's viewing a Windows VM and it works perfectly. The other's viewing an X server running in an OpenBSD VM, in portrait orientation. I had a full-screen, small-font xterm running, and the text is crisp and even across the entire panel. I think these screens were great bargains.

Cons: This isn't a big deal if you already know about it, but note that these screens don't come with stands that let you run them in portrait orientation mode; I had to attach an after-market stand to one for this.

SUPERMICRO MBD-H8SCM Micro ATX Server Motherboard Socket C32 AMD SR5650 DDR3 1333

5 out of 5 eggs Quality, highly compatible mainboard. 07/04/2012

This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-H8SCM Micro ATX Server Motherboard Socket C32 AMD SR5650 DDR3 1333

Pros: This compact mainboard's a high-quality piece. I've tried it with FreeBSD 9.0-R, Ubuntu 12.04 x86_64, and Windows XP x64 Edition so far. It works very well with all of these. I also had a number of technical questions for Supermicro, which they answered over e-mail, usually on the same day; their support's excellent.

Cons: The Supermicro Superdoctor application shows some of the temperatures (System, Air and NB) running kind of high--113F, 91F, and 122F, respectively. This despite that my configuration's very low-power (HE-class CPU, SSD disks, mild video board, etc). This gives me the impression that the board's running a little warm, but maybe this isn't a concern at all. On the upside, I ran a few hours of load tests and didn't see the temperatures go up at all.
