SYBA 2 Serial (RS-232, DB9) Ports PCI Controller Card, Full & Low Profile Brackets, WCH351 Chipset Model SD-PCI15039
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works with all versions of Windows (XP thru Windows 10)

Cons: Instructions leave much to be desired, the support software comes with the board on CD but supports multiple products. Easy to load the wrong driver, looses an egg for this.

Other Thoughts: Like many of the boards today this board comes from China. It appears to be nicely made flow soldered and good hardware. Also includes a shorty bracket for low profile cases. I would purchase again.

Dell UltraSharp U2412M Black IPS Panel 24
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Excellent price point when purchased under $275.00
LED backlight
3 Year parts and labor warranty
DVI, Display port and VGA interface
Decent stand

Cons: No Support for Windows XP
Cheaper E-IPS, inferior to H-IPS in display and quality
No HDMI Connector or support

Other Thoughts: I deducted 1 egg or no Windows XP support, this mean that you WILL NOT be able to run this monitor under XP using 1920 by 1200 resolution graphics in the monitors native display, this will result in poor display quality. I also deducted 1 egg for the combination of no HDMI support and the use of the less expensive E-IPS panel. H-IPS is far superior in display quality. The similar priced HP ZR2440w has none of these shortcomings and supports XP.

ASUS Google Nexus 7 ASUS-1B16 NVIDIA Tegra 3 1.20GHz 7
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: One of the cutting edge 7 inch tablets offering all of the services available through the Jelly Bean Android OS

If it wasn't for all the cons this product would get 5 stars.

Cons: Zero ASUS Customer Service!!!!!
Screen Flickering issues
Charging Issues
Short and cheaply made charge Cable

Other Thoughts: I have always been a flag waver for ASUS and their advanced products but no more.

The technology gains are just not worth the problems. A few months after owning this tablet I began to have charge issues. (not to mention the software bug crashes and screen flickering).
I isolated the problem to a defective charge cable. This unit uses a micro usb to usb charge cable that is cheaply made and too short (1 meter). The plug that is inserted into the tablet develops play and thus the unit no longer charges.
I contacted ASUS support just to be told to send in the charger and the cable, once received and inspected a replacement would be sent. This could take up to one month. I explained that I could just send in the bad cable (because I already bought a spare) for a replacement. ASUS said no, they must have both. I explained this would render my tablet useless while I wait for the replacement parts. ASUS could care less.

Buying and expensive electronic gadget is not just geting the latest and greatest product but being able to depend on it and the support of the company that makes it.

Unfortunately ASUS has lost touch with its customers. I have noticed the same issues with their motherboards, PC and just about everything else they sell.

Needless to say no more ASUS.

ASUS used to build advanced and great products but their support has gone the way of the dodo. Poor software patches and updates, poor or non-existant customer service and company policies that do not build customer loyality forces me to look elseware.

I will be selling off the Nexus 7 and replacing it with a Samsung or perhaps iPad.
