This review is from: Dell Y104D Radeon HD 3450 256MB DDR2 PCI Express x16 Video Card
Pros: Great upgrade for older video cards like my cousin's Dell 8400. Windows experience score graded 3.7-4.3 versus the 2.5 for the X300 card it came with. More than enough performance for standard users. Near new finish and very quiet operation. Price/performance comparison is excellent.
Cons: No drivers, instructions, or any manual; card only. Old style card not viable or even worthy in newer boards. For another $35-75 you could score the much more potent 6000-8000 series ATI cards.
Other Thoughts: Download the drivers from AMD site before installation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD Elements 500GB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive
Pros: Affordable, small footprint, stylish, and easy to use. Very ergonomic black case and good construction for pricepoint.
Cons: WD Software is crippled and doesn't allow full range of back-up options, fairly short USB cable of about 12 inches (18" needed), and invasive msconfig entries without first asking for permission to add to Windows start-up.
Other Thoughts: Good entry level backup that images your hard drive at a fair price. Would be five stars if cons were fixed.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NETGEAR WNR1000-RM RangeMax Wireless Router IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Pros: Arrived in brand new condition and within 3 business days of order. Set up was real easy and Windows 7 recognized it instantly the first time. Range and upload speed are excellent. Expertly packaged in a "new" NETGEAR brown box. Given the cost verses brand new, this has to be the best bargain I've seen this year.
Cons: Only 30 day warranty. Missing CD drivers and owners manual; but not really necessary if you're familiar with routers. Other than that, everything's supplied. Other con might be durability; I may not be so happy if it suddenly dies six-months from now :)
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from an earlier NETGEAR -G model for a little more range in my condominium. Maybe I got a lucky draw but this deal would be 6 stars if I could rate it that high.READ FULL REVIEW
