Galaxy 65IGH8DL7AXX GeForce GTX 650 Ti GC 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap

Cons: The card displays serious artifacts on two different monitors (though DVI), on a system and monitor that work flawlessly with another video card. The artifacts begin immediately at boot (in the CMOS/BIOS/EFI) and continues throughout the boot process and into the OS. So it's time to RMA it, right?

Galaxy's Tech Support is amazingly convoluted. I used to work in a computer shop. So I've RMA'd for pretty much every parts manufacturer (Asus, Intel, AMD, MSI, Hitachi-IBM, WD, Seagate, Maxtor, Quantum, Samsung, Abit ... you name it, I've RMA'd it). Galaxy's requires signifantly more hoops to be jumped through than anyone else.

Once you do that, Galaxy are professionals at stonewalling you.

I describe the issue has above, paraphrased, from emails:
Galaxy: What OS are you using? Does it work with other monitors? Have you cleaned the contacts?
Me: It happens before boot (sent them screenshots), happens on two monitors, etc
Galaxy: Have you updated drivers
Galaxy: What is the card's temperature when this happens?
Me: IT HAPPENS WITHIN 5 SECONS OF BOOT. The card is at room temperature!

I have no confidence this issue will ever be resolved. So if you opt to get a Galaxy card, and you need to go through the RMA, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Other Thoughts: Splurge $10 more and buy some other card. Save the hours of headache.

Bluetooth Headset w/ Android Application Support (HM7000)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Decent sound for price; Needs improvement in execution; Android application support is a lie. 05/29/2013

This review is from: Bluetooth Headset w/ Android Application Support (HM7000)

Pros: -Charging case is an awesome idea.
-Microphone quality seems to be good.
-Voice prompts are pretty useful.
-Serviceable sound quality for the price.

Cons: -Audio artifacts in earpiece. Seems to be a problem mainly when receiving calls on my Samsung Galaxy Nexus, although it's not audible in non-bluetooth headsets or the phone's earpiece.
-"Android application support" doesn't support Android versions above 2.3.
-Maximum volume is too low.
-Too easy to redial the last number. One press of the main button redials on Android 4.2/AOSP. Don't know if there is any way to avoid this behavior, but it's annoying to introduce a new form of accidental dialing.

Canon PIXMA MP780 9791A002 25 ppm (approx. 2.4 seconds/page) Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality InkJet MFC / All-In-One Color Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The print and engineering quality of this printer is very high. I feel like it is much better thought out than recent printers I have purchased. The duplexer and two paper inputs are killer.

Cons: I usually print in grayscale to save money. (I'm using the lastest version of Canon's Mac Drivers, haven't used this on Windows yet). The printer dithers using color ink when printing gray halftones and thus wastes a HUGE amount of color ink. It does not do this when the fast/quality slider is moved to 2/5, but the quality is very poor (the black is very light)- much much worse than most printer's draft mode.

Other Thoughts: Great printer overall, needs to stop using color ink when printing gray halftones to be a 5/5.
