Pros: This adapter is priced extremely well, and works perfectly.
Cons: None that I can think of. Comes in very generic packaging (literally a plastic bag), but what do you expect at this price?
Other Thoughts: I purchased this adapter for a client who wanted to connect their 2009 Macbook Pro to their HDTV set. There were other cables, etc available, but this adapter was chosen so a standard HDMI cable could be left connected to the TV, and this adapter moved with the laptop as necessary. It works well, the 2nd display was detected immediately when connected, and if your TV/monitor supports EDID, it will automatically choose and set the native resolution (1920 x 1080 in this case). Can't beat it for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low profile brackets included, quiet fan and cool running card, 128bit wide memory bus, plenty of output options.
Cons: none at this price point
Other Thoughts: I bought this for our home theater pc, which is a re-purposed HP DC5800 Small Form Factor business pc. I picked the machine up dirt cheap and upgraded the cpu to an Intel Core2 Quad Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz, 4GB 800Mhz DDR2 RAM, 80GB OCZ Vertex 2 SSD (for OS/apps), 2TB Western Digital Green drive (for media storage/backups), a handheld wireless airfly keyboard/mouse, and the Sapphire Radeon HD6570 1GB DDR3 graphics card. This machine sees 14 hours or so a day of use, ranging from Netflix/Hulu streaming, to HD movies/DVD's, to casual gaming (Sims 3, Skyrim, Super Street Fighter IV, and online flash games, etc). This card handles all those games at 1920x1080, medium to high settings, with extras like AA and AF turned off. Considering it costs only about $10 more than the HD6450, and provides roughly 3x the performance, it's a no-brainer for anyone looking for a low cost upgrade to provide better performance than integrated graphics.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RK-200 Black 107 Normal Keys USB Wired Standard Keyboard
Pros: These are great keyboard for the price, and awesome keyboards when they are on sale. I picked up a few of them when they were on sale for $4.99 a piece. I use one with the KVM switch in my shop, and normally keep a couple in stock for customers. The keys are pretty responsive, and they are very quiet compared to a number of other keyboards I've used in the past.
Cons: They're not free.READ FULL REVIEW
