OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-E 100GB PCI-Express x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSDPX-1RVDX0100
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Not for me.

Cons: This drive is highly prone to failure. Even with the provided drivers on OCZ's site, the drive will not take windows 7; the OS it is supposed to work best with. The RAID configuration is flaky at best.

As others have said before, OCZ is NOT a terribly honest company.

I'm ready to eat my $300 because I just will not subject myself to their return department.

I will regret buying this drive and will stop purchasing from them in the exact way I will not purchase Creative products after the Daniel_K incident. I've had enough.

Other Thoughts: It will NOT work on Mac OS X although I DID NOT EXPECT it to. Nowhere did they say it would. Will not fault them there.

However, Linux support even with the recommended kernel is just as spotty as Win 7.

HIGHLY Disappointed.

ASUS Xonar D1 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

5 out of 5 eggs Linux support is fantastic! 10/07/2008

This review is from: ASUS Xonar D1 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: Under kernel this and all of the xonar cards work perfectly. I had no trouble recompiling the new ALSA code under ubuntu 8.04 in order to get this to work. Intrepid Ibex, 8.10 alphas picked this card up immediately with no upgrade required.

Cons: Might require a kernel recompile until ubuntu 8.10 Intrepid Ibex is released. This is not for everyone and is very technical.

Other Thoughts: Given the lack of Creative support for Linux, ASUS stepped up to the plate.

Acer Laptop Aspire AS7520-5185 AMD Mobile Athlon 64 X2 TK-55 (1.80 GHz) 3 GB Memory 160 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 7000M 17.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The included hardware is outstanding for everyday tasks. An upgrade on the hard drive is recommended to acquire maximum capacity for today's large files. Ram configuration is quite flexible too!

Linux takes to this machine like a fish in water and runs circles around its Microsoft-loaded counterparts.

Cons: Comes with Vista, the world's worst Operating System. Even with upgraded hard drives and ram, the system lags like an old dog. Beware of the outrageous number of running tasks that Vista loads into the background.

Other Thoughts: If you are into having a truly 64-bit machine then xubuntu Hardy Heron or MINT Linux is your operating system of choice for this laptop.
