This review is from: OLEVIA 23" 720p LCD HDTV 323V
Pros: Great looking picture. Has multiple inputs.
Cons: Speakers sound like they are wrapped in Tin. There are two small 10 watt speakers.
Other Thoughts: As advertised, HDTV ready/monitor. I have to have a set top box anyway, so was specifically looking for something without a tuner. To compare; this 23 inch monitor is the same cost as a 19 inch with an analog tuner. I would rather have the larger size. If you don't need a full blown surround sound, I recommend stoping at your local electronics store and pick up some small 15-20 watt speakers for $25-$45. I found a nice little set with a small sub woofer for $24.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 ATSC/ClearQAM/NTSC TV Tuner White Box 1101 PCI Interface
Pros: Works best with Windows Media Center. Media Center is available with Vista Professional or Ultimate. Picks up Radio, All of my analog stations from cable, and 16 HD channels with a $24 antenna from Radio Shack. Oh and the antenna is in my basement.
Cons: The Free applications that come with the product (WINTV). Well now I know why it's free. It only discovered 16 analog and 16 HD channels
Other Thoughts: Pickup a Logitech Harmony 880 remote control. Works great with this card and media center.
AMD X2 5200+, 4GB memory, Vista Ultimate
Pros: Blu-Ray player, DVD player/writter, CD player/writer. Can't find anything like it for cheaper than this.
Cons: Not compatable with a number of SATA chipsets on the market. Check the compatability list on the Pioneer web site first.
Other Thoughts: Blu-Ray playback software has to be purchased separatly.READ FULL REVIEW
