This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: This was my first build from scratch. This board is the perfect platform to build anything from a full sized media center to a mid range gaming rig. 6Gb SATA and USB 3.0 are good selling points too. The board is sturdy and has no flex under the weight of a full HD 5770 and a CM Hyper 212. i could not be happier with this purchase.
Cons: None that I can see.
Other Thoughts: It is SO blue.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner w/ IR Remote PCI-E x 1
Pros: Plenty of connection options. Wish I could say more.
Cons: If you have Win7 64bit and try to install this card, there is a 50% chance that it will not be recognized. Windows will display the card as an unknown multimedia device and when you try to load the drivers whether it is from the CD or Hauppauges website, it will tell you COMPATIBLE HARDWARE NOT FOUND. Search those words and HVR and you will find several other people complaining about this and some of the other HVR series cards. Hauppauge still has no answer for this and I can only assume that they consider it a non-issue.
Other Thoughts: I have owned other Hauppauge cards and have had good fortune with this company. This one is a dud for my system though. After two weeks of scouring the web, I have gotten nowhere with either of the 2250s I purchased.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NZXT IU01 Case Accessory
Pros: Works without a problem. What a great little gadget. Adds two headers and two USB ports to the inside of my case. Perfect for blue tooth or wifi dongles or a hidden thumb drive or anything USB powered that you want to keep stashed away. Very nice construction and the sleeved cables look nice and clean.
Other Thoughts: Not a con, but the velcrro mounting may turn some people off this little board. It makes it idiot proof and easy to mount anywhere in the case, but seems cheap. But once it is mounted; who cares?READ FULL REVIEW
