This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3P AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Numerous usb ports, good feature set
Cons: wasn't plug and play
Other Thoughts: Board booted with auto memory settings, but couldnt get windows 7 installer to move past expanding files. BIos had memory multiplier set to 8, I lowered to 4 and it went through without a hitch. Memory used wasnt on Gigabytes approved list, but it matched specs on paper....so I suggest you stick to the approved memory .READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Philips 26" 720p 60Hz LED-Backlit LCD HDTV 26PFL4907/F7
Pros: -Lightweight for easy wall mounting
-Includes Wireless adapter and RJ45 for Net access.
-Ridiculously easy setup of Network access, Net Apps, Over the air

-One of very few small 'net enabled TV's
Cons: I consider the text on some of the app set ups a little small, But hey I'm old!
Other Thoughts: For the cost, you really can't beat this TV. It is perfect for kids rooms, dorms, kitchen or bath wall mount, etc.. Big enough for easy viewing, but not big enough to get in the way. Kudos to Phillips for putting out a small full featured TV. as not everyone needs or has the space for a huge set.READ FULL REVIEW

Will not work with certain raid controllers.

Other Thoughts: I own 5 Venus enclosures of various vintage and number of disks. I have had 2 trays break out of 20 trays and one 2 disk external burn up after 2 years or so.
