LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

5 out of 5 eggs Great quiet little box 06/04/2015

This review is from: LIVA 32GB 2GB DDR3L RAM installed 32GB eMMC Storage

Pros: It's fanless, which is awesome. It can also be powered via a usb port, which is kind of interesting.

No additional hardware required--just slap an OS on.

Install of windows 8.1 was very easy--just use rufus to create a UEFI Computer boot disk using your 8.1 ISO, and make sure it is fat32.

I'm using a bluetooth keyboard and a low profile nano usb 64gb drive to store everything else on.

Runs websites, office, and general programs quite well. It's portable, and easy to take with you wherever you go, should you so feel like it.

Cons: The drivers on a DVD, so you have to either use copy everything to a USB drive (and you have to use the root of the drive, or the installer breaks).

If you are doing an install over usb, then you only have one usb slot for a keyboard or mouse, which is kind of annoying. You can use a usb hub, but I didn't have one handy. For windows installation, you have to use the keyboard, but the driver installation CD requires a mouse click, so you have to switch to a mouse for that.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it was a great deal at $99. There are plenty of uses for a little device like this.

1 out of 5 eggs Won't turn on if power/molex is plugged in 07/04/2013

This review is from: SYBA USB 3.0 (3+1) PCI-e Controller Card, Etron Chipset, Molex (IDE HD 4-pin) Built-in Model SY-PEX20135

Pros: It has the right configuration, and it is affordable.

Cons: After plugging it in to a server, it wouldn't detect. I thought it could be a compatibility issue with the server so I tried it on a home computer.

The system will not even turn on once you plug the card into the molex connector. Unplug the power to the card and it'll turn on fine. It's definitely the card.

Other Thoughts: None of these PCIe cards from any manufacturer get consistently good ratings, this one was at 4/5 stars so I thought I'd give it a shot. It seems like the most recent batch may be defective, because the last few reviews have all had major issues.

OEM Production 2550L2D-MxPC Intel NM10 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3650 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System

Pros: I'm the IT Director at a school district and purchased two of these to run PFsense with CARP in failover. Our old server died, and these have more than enough power for our 10mb connection (and should handle any future upgrades). When looking at the utilization, it is rarely ever over 1%.

They are small, light, cheap, and work fantastic (with Pfsense 2.0--there are potential problems setting it up with any version higher than that).

Heck, just a dual nic PCIE card can cost almost as much as this barebones system.

Cons: When running anything higher than PFSense 2.0, (I tried 2.1 and 2.2) the display is impossible to use. It stops refreshing properly and it makes it nearly impossible to see what you are doing/installing. If you can fumble your way through it, however, it will install fine.

Alternatively, you can probably install it using a terminal connection with a serial connection.

Other Thoughts: Worth it just for the dual nic.
