This review is from: BELKIN F1DD104L SOHO DVI & USB KVM Switch
Pros: - Has the same functionality as more similar, higher-priced, USB/DVI KVMA products
- The USB hub will power 5PU (500 mA) devices
- DVI-I DualLink supports 2048x1536 so long as your video card, cabling and display are compatible as well.
- Solid DVI-D up to 1920x1200
- Versatile in its configurability and ability to either group or split the KVM, microphone and audio sources
Cons: - Case is plastic, which will leave it more vulnerable to external electromagnetic noise sources (such as anything with an AC motor, fluorescent lighting, transformers, etc.) than its more expensive counterparts in metal cases.
- Console USB keyboard supports, at most, standard 107 keys and does not recognize or even pass along any keys which would require custom driver(s).
Other Thoughts: The inability of using extended (gaming, media) keyboard in the console port is easily mitigated by connecting them into the built-in USB hub that all systems connected to the KVM can see.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SONY PSP 3000 Black
Pros: The 2000's processing capabilities are much improved in 3000 model. This means quicker loading, A/V decoding, better Skype quality, etc..
Cons: 'Some' owners of the 2000 have no need for the UMD; however, owners of the 3000 will need it due to the added tamper prevention. So it seems reasonable to assume the 3000 will need its battery recharged more frequently with upgraded CPU and need to power the UMD spindle & stepper motors.
This model also will also be the last to feature a UMD, so you can bet that new game/apps/movies/etc. will NOT be distributed via UMD.
Other Thoughts: The UMD (for many) is a complete waste of space. It would be nice if conversion kits were available to allow for additional or even just a much larger power cell, additional SD slots (or on-board memory), slide-out keypad to use in lieu of the clunky on-screen e-board or other perk(s) to replace the technology they're phasing out.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CPU Mag Gift - 6 issues of CPU Magazine
Pros: It's recycleable.
Cons: Waste of time going from mailbox to recycle bin.
Other Thoughts: After hundreds of $ in trashed rebate forms to keep my address off marketing lists, my info gets released because by a 'no opt-out' 'gift'. If this post is removed from the user reviews I'll cancel my open orders and find a customer-centric vendor.READ FULL REVIEW
