This review is from: Lexmark CX410DE Color Multifunction Laser Printer
Pros: All functions work as advertised.
Scanning: Love the simplicity of "scan directly to email." The email (SMTP) client supports SSL and thus works with all big email providers (gmail, office365 etc.) Once you setup email shortcuts, it takes 3 clicks to scan to email. Unlike the cx310, the cx410 series does have a duplex scanner, so you just load your 2 sided printouts on top and click go.
Printing: Very, very good quality almost approaching that of an inkjet for photos, especially if you set the color handling to manual and decrease yellow, increase cyan to get a good neutral tone. Text and graphics are tack sharp. Takes up to 47lbs paper for duplex and up to 58lbs paper for simplex.
Fax: just works. Supports both fax servers and analog fax. Can receive faxes and route them to email if desired.
Consumables: the official Lexmark consumables are very close in price to (and may even be cheaper than) the 3rd party ones if you subscribe to the rewards program.
Cons: Setup is very tedious. You have to understand networking inside and out to set this up properly.
SSL: the printer does not come with a list of certificate authorities (such as VeriSign etc.) that it trust right out of the box. To quickly enable email via SSL you have to disable cert checks. Disabling cert checks can only be done via the Web UI. You cannot do it from the printer itself.
Duplex: duplex is a global setting. You cannot disable duplex for heavy paper for example, so if you try to print on thick and heavy paper you have to remember to switch it to simplex on your computer every time.
Memory expansion: the slot is a standard DDR3 SO-DIMM slot. However the printer is very picky about memory and I haven't been very successful upgrading it except via using the "official kit"
Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very happy with it. Well worth the initial tedious setup. You cannot easily beat the price/performance ratio of this MPL printer.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DIAMOND ATI Theater HD 750 USB TVW750USB USB 2.0 Interface
Pros: Works with ATSC in North America and with DVB-T in Europe. Great for a laptop if you travel a lot and would like to have your TV fix. Good sensitivity/multi-path rejection - better than most other USB sticks - able to pick up distant channels better with fewer/no artifacts.
Works like a charm in MCE (win7 64bit) - no driver disk needed since it downloads the latest drivers automatically from the web.
Cons: USB powered. You will need a powered hub if you have a bunch of USB devices connected at once. I've noticed that two tuners with no other devices is about max without external powered hub. As soon as you add a mouse, a web cam, a USB powered hard drive and two tuners you will need external power in most cases.
Other Thoughts: Way better DVB-T reception in Europe than any other USB stick that I have seen. Makes sense since it has the newest chipset (announced in June 09 by ATI) of any DVB-T tuners. Very good ATSC reception in the U.S. better than most tuners and probably equal to that of the homerun unit I have.
Make sure you have a good antenna attatched. If you travel get yourself a small UHF antenna for the unit. The unit comes with a VHF antenna which is useless since most digital channels in U.S. and in Europe are in the UHF band.
This review is from: ASRock X58 Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: ECC Memory support with Core i7 Xeons.
Full virtualization support
Well spaced SLI / Crossfire slots (3 spaces appart)
Cons: none so far
Other Thoughts: I use this as part of my all-in-one setup with media center & game machine in the host OS (windows 7) and home/storage server in a virtual mahcine (under win7 Virtual PC). Works like a charm with the Xeon W3520 (Xeon version of the core i7 920) and the cheap corsair ECC memory.READ FULL REVIEW
