This review is from: ASRock A780FullHD AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: This board has been golden since I bought years ago. It has shown a Sapphire 6850 video card to be bad and an Asus M5A88-v-evo motherboard to be bad. This board says upgrade is not necessary for online gaming people. Its being moved to HDTV duty with an amd 4650 video card.
Cons: No USB 3 capability. An addon card won't run at usb3 speeds. No bragging rights.
Other Thoughts: We entered a computer plateau in 2006 with the Phenom II cpus. There is no reason to upgrade and waste money. Bragging rights excepted.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet compared to the sapphire 5670 card it replaced. Plays Skyrim on high setting without a glitch or slowdown, while the machine is downloading files and sending a signal to the tv.
Cons: Would disappear on reboot in an Asrock A780fullhd MB. Wouldn't work with a Diamond tv tuner card in a Biostar TA970XE MB. I ended up with an Asus M5A88-v-evo MB that had the firmware and hardware to do the job.
Other Thoughts: Runs 50 deg.C idle and 80 deg.C loaded at 28 deg. C (82 deg F) ambient air temp.

This review is from: SanDisk Sansa Fuze 1.9" Silver 8GB Video MP3 Player
Pros: Came in new condition. The phone jack was still a virgin. This was meant to be a backup player to my daily Fuze. But the look of it in the spare rubber cover I bought for the other one has made this new fuze my daily machine. I'm using the plastic wrap it came in as a temporary screen protector.
Cons: None yet. Went through my checks without problems. And I have my own head gear so the ear-buds go into the ear-bud box.
Other Thoughts: These players sing when the Rockbox operating system is installed. I like playing old Nintendo gameboy color games available on the net while I listen to audiobooks.READ FULL REVIEW
