This review is from: HighPoint RocketU 1144E PCI-Express 2.0 x4 USB 3.0 Host Controller
Pros: It doesn't work for me. So, none.
Cons: It doesn't work for me.
Other Thoughts: This card was recommended for servers (I'm running Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials on a SuperMicro X10SLM-F). I installed all of the drivers from Highpoint.com's site but I still have errors in Device Manager (base system device, PCI data acquisition, RAID controller, SM bus controller, Unknown device) and the eSATA ports do not work. I haven't tested the USB ports. I'd appreciate any and all help. This is the first server I've tried to build.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SUPERMICRO MBD-X10SLM-F-O uATX Server Motherboard LGA 1150 Intel C224 DDR3 1600
Pros: It won't run so I don't know if there are any.
Cons: RAM!!! Try to find something that'll work. The spec. stated "DDR3 1600". I ordered item N82E16820239826 (Kingston 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600). The beep code signals that the memory is empty. One user found some RAM that works (item N82E16820239402)... but costs $417 AND is out of stock!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: One thing the pictures do NOT show is that the flat part of the stand is removable. You can then swing the "leg" of the stand back so it sets flat on the desk top (like a picture frame). This is important to me because I wear bifocals. Now, with the monitor flush on the desk, I don't have to tip my head back to keep things in focus.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: The controls for the monitor are on the right side of the frame (because it can set directly on the desk).READ FULL REVIEW
