Acer B223Wbdmr Black 22
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is the second Acer I have bought. It works great and looks great. This one can pivot 90 degrees which makes it really convienent for long web pages or using TurboTax. The only reason I got this one instead of another one like the one I have is for that feature.

Cons: on screen menus suck. not intuitive. but luckily, they are pretty much set and forget.

Other Thoughts: Once you buy an Acer, you'll be hooked

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 4870 DirectX 10.1 GV-R487-512H-B 512MB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I must, admit, I'm loving this card. As others have said, this does run Really HOT. Once you install it, you will have to download the new drivers and catalyst control center in order to control the fan. Once the fan is ratched up (I put it to 38%) it's fine. You will notice a difference in room temperature, so make sure you have a window or Fan in the room.
Frame rates are beautiful. MS Vista Ultimate gave it the 5.9 rating (top) and I have two 22" panels feeding off it without a hiccup. Great for watching movies as well.

Cons: I didn't know I needed to download new drivers. Got really hot until I figured that one out.

Other Thoughts: May want to D/L drivers before installing. And check out the power requirements as well. You get an INSANE performance, but it does chew up some power.

4 out of 5 eggs A winner 07/22/2008

This review is from: AFT XM-28U BLACK 28-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal Card Reader

Pros: Had an alternate card reader...hated it. This one is a winner. Quick install (even on a Gigabye X48). Drivers found loaded quickly, and no problems at all. Does exactly what it's supposed to do

Cons: Still wish there was a reader that only showed drives when a memory card is installed, but have never found such a drive

Other Thoughts: none
