Pros: I've had two of these drives and they consistently achieve 110mb/s read and write speeds. One is over a year old, just bought a second. Love these little HDDs.
Cons: None that I can see.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great price/performance ratio. Can easily run most games with vsync on and have them look like butter on the screen.
Cons: I could only get 20 minutes into any given game before a BSOD. I have an 80% efficient 500w PSU, Q9300, 4gb RAM, a few fans, and the MAX power this could have drawn was 400w at the most considering my system, so that wasn't the problem. It ran perfect with Vista Ultimate and my 8600GT for months without a single freeze up or BSOD... until I installed this card. Constant system lock ups, driver mis-installs were rampant, the catalyst control wouldn't install. I had to do first the driver, then the control center to make it happy. After a reboot, I had an idle desktop and the machine would lock up. So I reinstalled Vista completely and did a fresh install. Now all the lockups are gone, but are now replaced with BSODs. Playing a game, BSOD. Watch a blu-ray, BSOD. Shut down the system, BSOD. I'm currently RMAing this card, and I have moved back to my stable 8600GT, and no problems at all. Stable as it always was.
Other Thoughts: This card could be great if it just worked. I've read a load of information on the internet about the specific BSOD error, and the file is atinavrr.sys, which is my ATI Theater Pro 650 and functions perfectly under my previous video card, but for some reason the introduction of this video card caused some kind of system-destroying conflict. As I said, I replaced the Nvidia, and everything was happy again.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon PowerShot G10 Black 14.7 MP 5X Optical Zoom 28mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
Pros: Versatile compact camera, offers many manual features of an SLR in compact form.
Cons: Image sensor is 1/1.7", or roughly 7.6 x 5.5mm = 38.16 mm of sensor space. Typical APS-C sensor (found on DSLRs) is around 24 x 16mm = 384 mm of space, able to capture roughly 10x the detail. The tiny sensor just can't compete with an entry level SLR at the same price.
Other Thoughts: This camera uses the same sensor as the SD990 ($100 less), and the same type of optics as their other compacts, resulting in the same image quality. Canon, please create a compact camera with a large sensor (like the Sigma DP1)!READ FULL REVIEW
