This review is from: Microsoft LifeCam Show 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam
Pros: ABSOLUTELY NONE!!!! SHAME ON YOU MICROSOFT! ZERO EGGS!!!!!!
Cons: I concur with every negative statement that others have posted. Color quality is absolutely aweful. Downloaded and installed latest everything from Microsoft site - everything still is aweful. Constantly flickers image quality like it can never auto adjust properly. Complete and total waste of money.
Other Thoughts: Shame on you Microsoft - you cannot tell me that any of your pre-release test results yielded anything other than only the poorest of quality that we all are reporting here. Gave one egg because cannot submit feedback with ZERO EGGS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Obviously - QUIET (totally silent, ie no fan). Heat sink comes over the top of the card which is great as it doesn't cover the PCI slots below (especially appreciated in microatx case). Card is perfect for basic quiet system, dual monitor capable (2xDVI) and will handle any video apart from high end gaming (watching dvd's, hd streaming online, photoshop etc). For those who are curious, scores about 4k in 3dMark06, Sempron 2.7Ghz, 2GB 800Mhz RAM. In microatx cas, definitely need 80mm rear case fan (temp around 47-52C after running 3dMark06) without rear case fan always in high 60's under load. Temp usually around 39-41 idle. At $40 with free shipping, a great deal.
Cons: None (if you use the card for the performance level it is intended).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV HVR-1250(HVR-1265) Hybrid TV Tuner w/ Video Recorder PCI-E x 1
Pros: Low price but amazing results! NO setup or detection problems whatsoever. Installed now in Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Flawless playback. Picked up all digital stations direct from my digital TV antenna. HD is awesome! Perfect super simple and flawless integration with Windows Media Center. Digital recordings (HD) are awesome. Works so well with Media Center I do not even use Hauppauge TV viewer software.
Cons: Did not work in my WHS but easily transfer all video to WHS after recorded on PC.
Other Thoughts: Super economic way to transform your pc into DVR and HD TV (with the right monitor).READ FULL REVIEW
