SUPERMICRO AS-1012G-MTF 1U Rackmount Server Barebone Socket G34 AMD SR5650 DDR3 1600/1333/1066
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This has been a great little server. We have had it in our data center for over two years now with an 8 core AMD processor and 32GB of ram.

This server offers excellent value for a 1U machine.

Cons: The on board RAID controller wasn't isn't recognized by VMWARE. We installed a separate RAID controller in the open PCIE slot.

PC Power & Cooling ModXStream Pro Series 600 Watt 80+ Semi-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ600MXSP)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: It was cheap and worked well for 3.5 years.

Cons: It failed at 3.5 years... someone else posted that theirs failed after 3.5 years as well. So if you still have one of these and have been running it 24/7 for over 3 years you may be in for trouble in the future.

Other Thoughts: Worth the extra cash to get a Seasonic.

LINKSKEY LDV-DM702AUSK Dual Monitor (DVI+DVI) 7.1 Surround Sound KVM Switch w/ Cables
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I posted previous unsatisfactory review that I would like to update. This switch now deserves a 3.5 star rating.


Reason for the update? I finally got my mouse to work when switching back to my windows 7 machine after it had gone to sleep, which was the biggest issue for me.


Navigate to the power management panel, you can just search for "power management" or go to Control Panel -> Hardware and Sound -> Power Options.

Click "change plan settings" and then "change advanced power settings" (both are small blue text).

You will now have the power profile tree pulled up, click "USB Settings" -> "USB selective suspend settings" and change this to "Disabled".

Your mouse should now wake up properly when you switch back to a sleeping Win 7 machine.

Cons: Poor website, lack of documentation, no firmware updates posted for this model.

Still required specific boot order of machines to work properly.

Other Thoughts: After over a year of ownership I am finally happy and the switch is usable after figuring out how to get my mouse to wake up in Windows 7 after sleep. I have had no problem with my Linux machine.
