    Works great in linux

    posted by mysjkin on 07/24/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    Works straight out of the box with my debian / kernel 3.2.0 amd64 machine. Comes with two sata cables. Unbeatable price.
    Cons:
    The sata cables are the shortest I've ever seen, not usable in my server box (luckily I had some longer spares) Not Pci-e.

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    posted by mysjkin on 01/06/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Cons:
    Narrow temperature range (0-50 deg C) -as advertised, but be warned.If you need a larger range, check out the DHT22: http://dx....

    Hazzlefree good earphones

    posted by mysjkin on 09/05/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Cons:
    Some may not like the orange color.
