The A8V-E Deluxe uses VIA's K8T890 chipset, which turned out to be an adequate performer, producing WorldBench 5 and gaming scores right in line with the competition during our tests. The A8V-E Deluxe fell a bit short of its nForce4 counterparts in terms of SATA and RAID support, offering only two SATA ports and RAID 0 and RAID 1. What the board lacks in drive support, however, it makes up for in networking, with an integrated 802.11g wireless adapter in addition to its gigabit Ethernet port. It even comes with a table-top external antenna.

We had no other complaints about the board--especially since it's nearly as fast as (and considerably cheaper than) its NForce4 rivals, and its layout is one of our favorites among the Athlon 64 products we have looked at. The PCIe x16 slot is mounted in the second slot position, to eliminate interference with the DIMM slots and to make room for a PCIe x1 slot on the right.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
