Targus ACH63US Super Mini USB 2.0 4-Port Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Targus refuses to honor warranty 12/17/2007

This review is from: Targus ACH63US Super Mini USB 2.0 4-Port Hub

Pros: Small size

Cons: Item arrived DOA, Targus has refused to honor the warranty for free, and has requested that I pay for shipping and handling to send the item back.

If I could rate this even lower than 1 of 5, I would.

Other Thoughts: Items are shipped DOA all the time, but never has a company asked that I pay for S&H to have them fixed.

Do not buy from Targus!

Logitech G5 2-Tone 6 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Laser 2000 dpi Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The strongest feature of this mouse is the on-the-fly sensitivity changing built into the hardware.

Although this card has no driver support on OSX and Linux, that feature works perfectly on both OSX and Linux.

Also, the tilt-wheel feature and the side button work perfectly in Linux as well.

Cons: Some people do infact hate the fake rust look, but since I put functionality over look, I still rate this as high as possible

Other Thoughts: I do the majority of my gaming in Linux, and it is often hard to find a mouse that both functions well, and doesn't provide major functions through drivers.

This mouse works 100% under Linux, using the standard USB HID drivers that come with Linux.

Google for "Logitech G5 linux" for more information

XFX GeForce 6800XT DirectX 9 PVT42KUDE3 256MB 256-Bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs One of the best AGP cards you can get 10/21/2006

This review is from: XFX GeForce 6800XT DirectX 9 PVT42KUDE3 256MB 256-Bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X Video Card

Pros: A high quality Nvidia 6xxx series card, well designed, well built.

Since AGP is dying out, I would not recommend this for a new system, but for older systems that pre-date the PCIE switch over, it would be hard to find a better card that is still worth the price tag.

Cons: Effectively none, though some motherboards include IDE/SATA/whatever plugs too close to the AGP slot, which cards that use "swoop" design heatsink/fans like this card does _may_ block those plugs.

This is a design error in the motherboard, not the card.

Other Thoughts: I recommend XFX products, although meant for the "extreme gamer" crowd who would overclock their toaster if they could do it, they are well built, well supported, and last a while.
