This review is from: VANTEC 4-Port FireWire 400 PCI Host Card Model UGT-FW050
Pros: Cheap! (Even more so with a 20% promo code discount)
It worked well with Windows 7 and Sony Vegas.
Cons: None. Just wish I had read a the reviews (or looked at the one picture with the cable) a little more closely to see that it came with a 4 to 6 pin cable. Could have saved myself $3.00 on the cable I ordered with it.
Other Thoughts: I have about 40 old miniDV tapes with for an old Panasonic PV-DV200 miniDV camcorder and I wanted to get it all onto the computer so I could have it backed up and use it for editing. I plugged it into a PCI slot and Windows 7 Home (64-bit) installed it with no problem. I used Sony Vegas Movie Studio 11 to do the video capture and it was easy to import the tapes as video clips.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA ATX-CW500WP4 500W ATX Power Supply
Pros: I bought this power supply to replace a 400W that had died on my kids older computer. No problems installing it and so far it has worked great. The rebate took right around 6 weeks to arrive as they said it would. Can't beat the price!
Cons: May not be enough for some top end systems, but was more than enough for and older system.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech MX 620 6 Buttons Tilt Wheel Cordless Laser Mouse
Pros: This mouse has been one of the best I have used in years. I was skeptical about the battery life issue with a wireless mouse (I had a real battery eater a few years back when wireless was new). So far I have been using this mouse for work and games 7 days a week (minimum 8 hours/day) for the past 2 months and the program tells me battery life is at 90% (I used industrial strength AA's). The buttons are well positioned and programable which makes it great for gaming. The downloadable software lets you configure the mouse settings differently depending on which program you are using. So for one game you can turn down the mouse speed and set the buttons for certain game functions or keystrokes and for another game you can have a completely different set of commands bound to the buttons and different mouse speeds set. It's a very versatile mouse in that regard.
Cons: The scroll wheel is a little clunky when you don't have it set to the free-spinning mode.
Other Thoughts: The laser technology is great. No dirt and mess like with a trackball mouse, no annoying red-glow like there is with optical mice.READ FULL REVIEW
