Pros: Super bright and crisp. It's whites make my not-that-old LCD monitor look like yellowed parchment. It's shocking when you first turn them on side-by-side. I actually had to set it darker so it would more match my LCD.
Cons: I don't really like the way the cords plug in. The cords stick straight out from the monitor. Slow turn on time - but monitors don't just pop on anymore, do they?
Other Thoughts: Great picture, the bezel is slick looking, but I wish they made it more intuitive to switch inputs.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy setup with Linux (using well-worn OpenSuse 11.4). Picture looks great, super-easy setup with MythTV .25-fixes (even easier than my DVB tuners). Silent and usable by multiple computers on the network. Just plain awesome.
Cons: Not much of a con, but it would be slightly better to allow firmware upgrades through the web interface rather than having to build a interface from source. Not complaining though! I appreciate ANY company that supports Linux. Not hot, but not super-cool either.
Other Thoughts: It'd be nice to have on-board h264 encoding, but what this gives you is awesome. I haven't tried encrypted channels with a CableCard yet, although I anticipate having to when the cable companies switch everything to encrypted. (D*** you FCC).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD Athlon X2 4850e Dual-Core 2.5 GHz Socket AM2 45W ADH4850DOBOX Processor
Pros: Stays cool, and it seems only a little slower than my 5000+. All in all, it works better than I thought it would in my HTC MythTV box.
Cons: none, really. The Stock fan is a little loud, but not too bad. It may just seem loud because everything else is so quiet.
Other Thoughts: I really hope AMD catches up soon. I don't want to only have to choose from what Intel thinks I should have.READ FULL REVIEW
