TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

5 out of 5 eggs Plug and Play for Linux! Very Pleased! TP-LINK TG-3269 04/08/2016

This review is from: TP-LINK TG-3269 Gigabit Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI 1 x RJ45

Pros: I'm installing Linux on an *old* Micro-ATX motherboard. The motherboard network chip is only 10/100, so I disabled it in BIOS and plugged in this PCI Network card. The Linux install disk for openSUSE 11.1 32/64-bit, sees the RealTek 8169 chip no problem. RLTK 8169 chip is also seen by other distros - Red Hat, Fedora, CentOS, and Kubuntu. So I now have a Gigabit LAN PC whereas before I was stuck down at 10/100.

Cons: Really no Cons for this card. It's plug and play with Linux and also with Windows, multiple versions, as I know from personal experience. So no Cons whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: The RealTek 8169 chip-based PCI network card is my standard "Go To" card when I need Gigabit LAN and I only have a PCI slot available, regardless of OS - Windows or Linux. It works fine for BOTH. PLEASE NOTE: The RealTek 8169 chip apparently does NOT support Wake-On-Lan (or so I have read) but I never use that function so it is not a Con for me. Might be for you. Be warned. Also, I have had good luck using network adapters from TP-Link and I feel very comfortable recommending the TP-Link Brand products in general. I've used them for a router, a switch, and for both wired and wireless network adapters. All fine, and good with both Windows and Linux. But if you need Linux-compatibility, then use your favorite search engine and DO YOUR RESEARCH *BEFORE* BUYING! I did, and this net-card works well for both Windows and Linux.

Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works well With Win 7 Enterprise 03/08/2016

This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Sound Card

Pros: I needed a PCI sound card with Win 7 drivers. This one looked like a good risk. It was. Worked perfectly with Win 7 Enterprise.

Cons: None so far. *UPDATE* 2016-03-08 - I have found that my openSUSE Linux 12.x and 13.x do NOT like this card AT ALL. So now I am stuck with a Windows-Only Sound Card. Bummer, since I am now 99.9% Linux and only run Windows in VM's via VirtualBox. So LINUX users do NOT buy this card.

Other Thoughts: I wish that I could have just downloaded a Win 7 driver for my Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live! (PCI) but no such luck. The Live! card worked fine with openSUSE linux 12.2 - oh well. The new card sounds great.

LG 3D Blu-ray Player BP540

3 out of 5 eggs Very Happy at first and then Very Disappointed in LG Support. 03/08/2016

This review is from: LG 3D Blu-ray Player BP540

Pros: When I first received this player I was very pleased that it worled so well with all my discs. Then after a few months it stopped playing the audio portion of DVDs. Blu-Ray disks played fine with audio just not DVDs. I am now trying to get an RMA with LG support.

Cons: After a few months it stopped playing the audio portion of DVDs. Blu-Ray disks played fine with audio just not DVDs. I am now trying to get an RMA with LG support.

Other Thoughts: I tried swapping HDMI cables and all 3 cables gave the same results. And when I played the same "problem" DVDs in my PC they worked fine, audio and all. So next time I buy a Blu-Ray player for my TV I will NOT be buying LG but will likely go with some other big name like Sony. I have spent many hours on the phone with LG Support over a period of several *MONTHS* *TRYING* to get a WARRANTY replacement for this LG Player. FORGET IT! My word to the wise is to buy a SONY and NOT to buy an LG *ANYTHING* as LG Support will not honor their warranty. Extremely disappointed in LG. I will NEVER buy another LG product as their warranty is worthless. Maybe Sony will be a more honorable company. LG warranty is worthless garbage. Sad.
