Pros: Good image quality, solid construction.
Cons: DVD useless. Software does not even recognize it's own monitor and fails to install.
Other Thoughts: For a company that blows it's horn so loud about it's quality control to not even be able to supply software that recognizes it's own product is disgusting. As a former testing engineer it tells me one thing - this product was not tested properly.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32-bit for System Builders
Pros: Easy to install, finally! Connecting to internet is a snap which was probably the most awe inspiring moment I've had with Vista.
Cons: After downloading more than 45 updates from MS some very annoying issues still remain. One is that, frequently, when you open an app or maximize a window that is already open Vista will close it immediately. Depending on the app it may happen several times in a row.
The other issue I have with it is the CD handling capability. If you put a blank R/W disc in the drive before you have dragged the files over to burn, Vista will hang and you have to reboot. If I write a file to a CD using the non-windows formatting Vista will not let me put another file on the disc after that. The only thing that it will allow is deletion of all files on the disc and reformatting in Vista format. If you do use Windows LFF format and put it in another machine you will usually get an error that the CD is not formatted although in the end it will finally read it.
Other Thoughts: So, if you need to do DVD/CD r/w operations you should forget Vista's standard options and buy something that really works.
It is disgusting that as large as Microsoft is and as many years as they have had to get it right they still turn out trash like this. It is also sad that as many top minds as we have in this country that there is not a much better alternative to the Microsoft operating systems.

Other Thoughts: This company has a serious QC problem.READ FULL REVIEW
