AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Worked great at first 09/22/2014

This review is from: AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR

Pros: Installed easily in WinXP
Worked good for casual viewing of an external box (Roku) while using the PC
App is easy to use and has enough features
I was very pleased - in the beginning

Cons: I noticed that while playing video, the computer was somewhat less responsive. For example, there would be a slight delay just switching windows and the like. But it was no big deal.

Well, within about 3 days of using this card, I started getting long pauses, where the PC would just hang for a minute or so. It got progressively worse over the next 24 hours, to the point where the PC basically got unusable. This was happening whether I had the Avermedia app open or not. In fact, even just booting the computer became a 5 minute affair, where normally it's about a 30 second process.

The interesting thing is, the card and app still worked. So I thought something else was going wrong with the PC. I went through the motions of uninstalling other hardware and software, but I wasn't touching the problem.

Finally I pulled the Avermedia capture card out of it's slot, fired up the PC, and all was well.

I'm RMA'ing it for a replacement, hoping that something just went wrong with this one, because it worked fine for a few days and I was very happy with it. I'll write another review and describe how the new one worked out

MSI A78M-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I like the I/o and slots arrangement on this board. Both PS/2 ports is nice, 4 USB3 ports is very nice, 3 express slots plus one standard PCI, 6 SATA 3's, 4 memory slots. So many cheap boards skimp on I/O & memory slots and to me it's the most important thing I look for in a board.

The BIOS is robust and easy to use, and the board is stable.

Cons: None. I am concerned about one thing though. I have an MSI FM1 board that's been in service for a couple of years and for some reason, the plastic frame around the CPU that anchors the heat sink failed. The plastic seems to have crystallized from head and got brittle and just came apart. The heat sink literally fell off. This on a running computer that was sitting still and hadn't been disturbed in ages. Sure looks like the same design on this FM2 board. Oh well, time will tell.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these to build us some new office computers from. All three came up easily and quickly without a hitch and the users love them. All have SSD's and the same A6 processor and Gskill memory.

These AMD APU systems deliver a big bang for the buck.

Vizta V24Lmha1 V24Lmha1 Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Reasonable price and looked fine for office use

Cons: Put into service on a Friday and Monday morning it's HDMI port had completely quit. Still worked over the VGA port, but insisted there was no signal over the HDMI. I pulled the HDMI cable from the back of it and stuck it into another monitor and it worked fine, so I know there's signal.

Other Thoughts: Only buy if your time is not valuable to you and you don't mind messing with returns.
