ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

5 out of 5 eggs Lot of features packed into a small board! 09/28/2010

This review is from: ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Small form factor, SATA, HDMI, HD audio, integrated video, built-in WiFi, absolutely stable so far, has RAID and overclocking capabilities if you need them.

Cons: Only two DIMM slots, integrated video uses shared system memory, ATI video did not plug-and-play well with my ASUS 23.6" Full 1080P LCD - see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I built a system with this motherboard and:

AMD Athlon II X4 620 2.6GHz
SILVERSTONE Sugo SG05-B w/ 80+ cert 300W power
Mushkin 4 GB DDR3 (two 2 GB DIMMs)
Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 60GB SATA II SSD
Windows 7 Ultimate

This system is ridiculously faster than any other computer I've used. I'm not a gamer, but I do watch a lot of streaming video (like Netflix, MediaMall PlayOn server for PS3).

The SSD is used for my system drive, but I am using a network/USB 500GB Iomega drive for files. Even in this configuration, applications like iTunes (notoriously slow on any other PC I've used) are lightning fast. I have had ZERO stability issues.

If you have a monitor with native 1080P resolution but are getting letterboxes around your screen and fuzzy text/icons, Google for an overscan setting issue with ATI Catalyst Control Center and 1920x1080 monitors. It's a simple fix, but it took me awhile to find it. Everything was great after that.

4 out of 5 eggs Great for watching Netflix in bed! 09/28/2010

This review is from: Apple MC086LL/A - iPod Touch 8GB

Pros: Simple-to-use interface, battery life, Netflix app that works very well, fast WiFi web browsing.

Cons: The interface is slightly more sluggish than I would've thought. The provided USB cable does not seem to work with any 3rd party USB wall adapters. I can only charge by plugging it into a computer that's on. What?

Multiple "are you sure you want to purchase this app" message boxes when downloading a FREE app from the App Store. Also, I am forced to log into the iTunes store every time I download something. Can it not cache this login somehow? Even if just for a week or so?

No camera. For $40 more, you can get the 4th gen with a camera.

Other Thoughts: It's a handy little entertainment device. I am THRILLED about the Netflix app. I watched Full Metal Jacket the first night I had it. It looked great for such a small screen. My only complaint about this app - and don't know if it's an Apple or Netflix thing - is that you can only hold the iPod one way to view movies.
