Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 64-bit for System Builders

1 out of 5 eggs Worst OS I've ever worked with... 10/13/2009

This review is from: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate SP1 64-bit for System Builders

Pros: It looks good and the layout is pretty

Cons: The networking features from XP aren't available in Vista. It was mainly made for looks and for people who don't know much about networking. I'm a network engineer it Vist makes it hard to do things like set a static IP address and telnet into a device.

My computer freezes at the drop of a hat. I won't even do anything that requires a lot of process power but everything will stop in its tracks so that I have to restart my computer and it gets extremely frustrating. It'll freeze when I do things like:
-upload a video to the internet (every single time)
-do misc things on the internet
-work on something in Microsoft Word
-when the screen saver has been on too long

I have tried everything to resolve this but nothing seems to work. I used to be an in store tech at Comp USA and Circuit City (when they were still in business) so I know what I'm doing. I've done a full system scan to check for viruses, defratmented the hard drive, and tried small tweeks. Nothing works!!!!

Other Thoughts: I can't wait for Windows 7 to come out so I can get rid of Vista on my computer. I hate this operating system with a passion. I've never worked on something that freezes this much. What makes it so frustrating is that all of the hardware is brand new and powerful:
-quad core AMD (3.0 GHz)
-ASUS motherboard
-HDMI video card (1GB memory)
-4 GB of RAM
-2 TB hard drive
-1TB external hard drive (so that nothing clutters the internal hard drive)

Rosewill - HDMI Switch box 3-in-1 w/ Remote (RME-002)

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad...especially for the price 09/11/2009

This review is from: Rosewill - HDMI Switch box 3-in-1 w/ Remote (RME-002)

Pros: The quality of the picture is good.

It makes things convenient when using more than one computer on a single monitor.

Cons: The response time is a little slow. This usually happens when switching from one device to another. Sometimes the video doesn't come up at all and I have to restart the device.

The input lights aren't very distinct when more than one device is turned on. If 2 or more devices are on then they all show green which is confusing if you want to know which one you're using.

Other Thoughts: Overall it is a good product. I have two computers connected to it (my old computer and new one). And I'm using an HD monitor as the output. My only problem is the slow response time (which isn't too bad) and the hassle when switching between both computers and one doesn't show anything (doesn't happen every time). But when I restart my computer it fixes the problem.
