Pros: Inexpensive, VGA, HDMI, and DVI out.
Cons: They seem to have defective fans. I bought several of these cards earlier in the summer and almost all of them have had the fans die after light office use. I bought them so I could set up dual monitors for secretarial work.
Other Thoughts: I can't tell what the problem is. Because the fan will just stop running and the computer will eventually shut down due to overheating of the video card. But sometimes the fan will actually run for a while before shutting off. Overall, it seems like a bad batch of cards. I won't make this mistake again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Visioneer Strobe 400 Duplex mobile Document Scanner
Pros: Small foot print on the desk. Quick, reasonably good quality scans. Most of the time. Good product for the price if you're using Windows XP.
Cons: Almost always blurry on one side. Doesn't scan entire page width in Win7 64bit no matter what.
Other Thoughts: I bought five of these to use at our doctor's office for scanning insurance and ID cards into our computer system. Initially installed on Windows XP 32bit. The software didn't work right and support gave me a link to a "power tools" fix that resolved some of the issues. Unfortunately, after THAT fix, one side (the top) was always blurry but still readable. This was on ALL 5 scanners on 5 different computers. Not exactly what I was expecting.
Used them for about 1 year. Now that we've bought a new system and new scanners I'm trying to re-deploy these elsewhere in the office but I cannot make them work well with Windows 7 64bit systems.
When I scan a full 8.5/11 sheet of paper, about 1 inch on the left and right margins is not scanned well... if you can see anything at all.
This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E6750 Conroe Dual-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 775 65W BX80557E6750 Processor
Pros: Been running this chip now for 3 years, it's rock solid and very fast. The high FSB speed allows this chip to out perform newer, faster chips (like the 2.93Ghz E7500). I've never tried overclocking and I've run it with the stock cooling fan.
Other Thoughts: Took me 3 years to think about giving this a 5 star rating. Don't know why. Pretty much too late now!READ FULL REVIEW
