This review is from: SPARKLE PCI Series 700037 GeForce 8400 GS 512MB PCI Video Card
Pros: its PCI interface, not PCIe. The 8400GS chip is currently supported by Nvidia in Windows 8. It is a bargain for an 8400GS PCI card compared to what remains in the marketplace for this outdated interface. Works well for desktop apps, not using it for gaming.
Cons: its PCI interface, not PCIe.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this to be able to run a 4 monitor system with Windows 8 with the current updated Nvidia drivers. The previous mix of a 8400GS PCIe card and a 6200 PCI card worked with the native Windows 8 drivers, but when Windows update released new NVidia drivers, I lost the function of the 6200 PCI card. It turns out the old 6200 series is no longer supported by Nvidia for Win 8. I could roll back the drivers to restore function, but went instead with spending $50 with getting a second 8400GS PCI card to keep drivers current.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Philips Norelco 6945XL dry electric razor CleanCut Flexing heads
Pros: Comfortable to hold, relatively comfortable and close shave for a dry shave, holds a good charge.
Cons: No trimmer, not for wet shaving
Other Thoughts: I have used Norelco razors for decades, and this was a steal at $30 on sale. It gives a good close shave and is a decent quality product. Just be aware that there is no trimmer with this unit.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BYTECC HD1-SU3 Aluminum 2.5" Silver USB 3.0 External Enclosure
Pros: This is my 4th BYTECC external enclosure. All have been solid and reliable, including the HD1-SU3. Hard to beat for the price. Comes with a USB 3.0 micro B cable and and additional USB cable to supply 5v power. Have been using it with a 5400 rpm 250gb drive with only the USB 3 cable for power, and it seems to work fine on both USB 2 and 3 ports. Perhaps the additional power cable would be needed for a 7200 rpm drive.
Cons: no complaints about build quality. Aluminum with plastic end caps.READ FULL REVIEW
