XFX Double D HD-687A-ZDFC Radeon HD 6870 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Seems to be fast and ran what I threw at it while it was working.

Cons: It is in the RMA process. I did not have heat or power issues but it would randomly fracture the display.
Driver reinstalls (multiple versions), reseating the card, and swapping monitors didn't seem to help.
Happened within an hour with two monitors every time. One monitor could run for 15 minutes or 2 days before it happened.

Other Thoughts: TX750 PSU
High end EVGA board
I will update once I get the new card and test. All the GPU monitoring apps showed the card working fine and I didn't have any problems with games or video while it was working properly.
We will see what this does to the rebate process as well.

StarTech USB2106S USB to Ethernet Network Adapter

5 out of 5 eggs Reliable & Compatable 01/31/2011

This review is from: StarTech USB2106S USB to Ethernet Network Adapter

Pros: We've been using this as an add in for network testing and network installs. Works well with Windows XP, 7, 2008 as well as multiple flavors of Linux.
We ran a constant 30Mbs through it for over a week with no problems where a laptop internal nic failed after a couple of hours of this.
It has multiple indicator lights on it as well.

Cons: Cheap feeling (not a suprise).

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive and works well. If you are looking for something to go behind a PC that doesn't move or if you need something for plugging in and testing.
I personally would not use this with a laptop or or netbook as the main nic. I don't think it would hold up long term.

Transcend 8GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model TS8GSDHC6
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great card, reads fast, writes fast, and seems to be compatible (with everything that CAN USE SDHC).

Cons: Newegg (This is the second time I've been asked to review this and you didn't even post my first review . . .)
I have to agree with "Faulty-Analogy" on the users not knowing what they are talking about and giving this a bad wrap.

Other Thoughts: I have purchased three of these cards now. In fact it has become an addition to any camera orders I make.
I have used them in a variety of cameras.
Canon PowerShot A570 showed a great improvement in speed of shots from a basic card. As did the PowerShot A1200 and the PowerShot D10.
There were some cameras that did not show an increase in write speeds but these were also less expensive cameras and probably didn't have the ability to write at higher speeds (under or around $100).
In any SDHC card reader I have noticed a pleasant increase in download speeds from the cards that people tend to buy or tend to come with the cameras.
