EVGA 02G-P4-3753-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti Superclocked 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card

Pros: Quiet
Low power (it is powered by PCI bus and doesn't require anything else)
Build quality
Plays well with Linux

Cons: I don't have any cons at this time.

Other Thoughts: I was looking to upgrade an older and a newer Linux box from integrated graphics. After a bit of time spent considering my budget I found that this card was priced right and a good performance value. The build quality of this card was better than expected. This card plays well with Linux but was a bit finicky on first boot. Once I was able to stay on the desktop for longer than a few seconds I loaded Software & Updates and installed the nVidia 352 drivers and everything was right as rain.

On my new machine this card plays well with VirtualBox which runs Win10 on a second monitor (via HDMI to VGA). The gaming in the VM environment is exceptional, however, on the older machine Virtualbox is sluggish with Win10 and gaming is not going to happen and have attributed this to the age of the computer.

Considering the build quality, I look forward to having this graphics cards with me for a long time. If you're like me and don't need the best but don't want to settle for mediocre, consider this chipset.

GIGABYTE GA-H97M-D3H LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I'm not familiar with the Windows issues that the below reviewers seem to be reporting. The board has exceeded my expectations when it comes to my linux install. I left my Linux OS intact on a Crucial 128GB MX1 SSD and moved my user directory to a WD Blue 320GB drive.

On first boot into Ubuntu all of the hardware was detected and anything missing was installed through an update which I had expected. Gigabyte's Linux support has always exceeded most other manufacturers.

If you're going with Linux expect no problems with support.

Cons: I don't have enough time I get a cup of coffee when I restart.

Other Thoughts: On first boot, I updated the BIOS to the latest Gigabyte had available and perhaps this is an explanation as to why I haven't had the issues of the other reviewers.

Luxa2 Groovy Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker 2.1

4 out of 5 eggs Convenient, portable and clear 01/04/2014

This review is from: Luxa2 Groovy Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker 2.1

Pros: The radio is highly compatible with older devices as it uses an older bluetooth 2.1 protocol and auto connects to the host device, no need for passcodes or pressing another button to pair. A "unique" sounds let me know when it turns on/off and paired.

Audio quality is good with no rattles and I have charged it once and it is still going strong. The build materials are fantastic, aluminum with leather and a cloth net protecting the face.

Cons: I've noticed a finite limit at about 20' where the bluetooth transfer loss causes the audio to cutout. Volume is not normalized so don't stray too far from the host or speaker, those around you will thank you for turning it down. There's no rattle and no bass. The bass is on the high end of the lower spectrum, drum and bass sounds like drum and cymbal, kind of a bummer there.

Other Thoughts: I have two young boys and this speaker travels around the house with us. Whether we're jamming to Laurie Berkner or chilling to Tycho the audio quality has always been good. Notable extras were the black and brown leather handles and pull string bag.

My wife likes how it looks ...
