This review is from: Kworld PC to TV /External TVBox 1920ex SA232 VGA Interface
Pros: You can use it to watch composite video, cable tv tuner, and watch VGA video. You can even have your VGA video (from a computer) full screen on the monitor, and have either the composite video or the cable tv tuner in a little Picture-in-Picture window. It's got a smaller footprint than a DVD case, and only as thick as 2 dvd cases.
Cons: It uses an "MMI A/V cable" for A/V input, which I can't seem to find anywhere.
It won't input or output 1280x800 computer video, which is my laptop's native resolution. But it will do 1440x900, which my laptop will do for external displays.
Other Thoughts: I was able to play video games and cable tv thru it with no problem.
Note: This product is used to watch TV on your monitor. When I originally ordered this, I thought it was used to output computer video onto a TV. I needed one of these devices anyhow, and I'm glad I got it.
This review is from: ENERMAX Jazz EB207S-B Aluminum & Steel Mesh 2.5" USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Metal mesh top lets heat escape easily, keeping the drive cool. Truly plug-and-play. I plugged in the hdd, closed up the case, and plugged in the USB and power plugs and I was ready to go.
Cons: Comes with a separate power usb wire instead of a multi-head usb cable that most other external hdds come with. I've used it with a multi-head cable, so I know it works. Power and USB wires are very short (maybe 1.5 feet long). If it's going to be in a dark room, you might need to put a piece of dark colored tape over the blue LED because it is BRIGHT!
Other Thoughts: For the money, this is the best 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 external enclosure that I've come across. If I need to get another external enclosure, I'm buying another one of these.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Half Life 2: Orange Box PC Game
Pros: Games play well even on a non-gaming laptop.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: If you have Steam, you don't even need to take the disks out of the box. Just activate the product thru Steam, and it'll download the games from Valve's servers. Now you're thinking with Portals.READ FULL REVIEW
