Acer Nettop AspireRevo AR3700-U3002 Intel Atom D525 (1.80 GHz) 2 GB DDR3 250 GB HDD NVIDIA ION graphics Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Size
Power Consumption

Cons: Wireless
HDMI Audio / Linux driver support

Other Thoughts: I bought this with the sole intention of being an XBMC box. This is what my review will focus on.
This replaced an AMD/ATi home built HTPC as it was no longer capable of playing full 1080p content smoothly. This little box has nearly perfect XBMC Live/buntu compatibility. The only shortcomings were the wireless interface and HDMI audio passthrough. With a bit of linux knowhow (or googling) they are both relatively easy to overcome. I personally opted to run a wireless N bridge on DD-WRT to reach my media center (XBOX, HTPC, Receiver all connected).

Overall, this thing streams extremely high bitrate 1080p content over my local network without ever blinking. If you're looking for a low-power, low-footprint HTPC solution, you've found it.

LSI Internal SATA/SAS 9211-8i 6Gb/s PCI-Express 2.0 RAID Controller Card, Single--Avago Technologies
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Solid HBA
Great Linux Driver Support
Proper on-card RAID
RAID 1+0 helps me sleep at night

Cons: No RAID5 support (I knew this going in)

Other Thoughts: Used this to replace a Highpoint card that corrupted a drive on a Centos6 install. Linux drivers are built into all mainline kernels and are rock solid.

3x500Gb WD RE4's in RAID 1+0 gives redundancy and great throughput. Just pair it with a mini-SAS to SATA breakout cable.

In short, if you're looking for a non-fakeraid card, to handle smaller arrays (or just to install your OS onto), this card is in a class of it's own.

4 out of 5 eggs 11/11/2010

This review is from: LG 42" 1080p LCD HDTV 42LD450

Pros: For the price, I'm convinced you will not find a better, or even comparable TV. The image is crisp and has a great set of customisation features for adjusting every aspect of the image. The menu system is well designed and looks surprisingly good. The remote is well laid out, and feels solid.

Cons: Quite a lot of backlight bleed, can be cut down by dropping the brightness. Other than that.....

Other Thoughts: Only rated 4 eggs due to the backlight bleed, which prevents it from being absolutely perfect. If you're looking for an LCD HDTV that's large, inexpensive and aren't needing to have any of the latest and greatest tech, then your search ends here...
