This review is from: AVerMedia C027 AVerTV HD DVR
Pros: If you can get it to run, when you get it to run, it's nice. When you get it to run. If you can. You won't, at least not for long, especially when they put out updates. But hey, if you can, it's great.
Cons: These drivers were programmed by people that Downs Syndrome patients would call slow. Even vegetables have more brain function, these people are practically on par with corpses.
So, get custom drivers, right? Because I mean, the people that made this are complete failures in every viable way when it comes to programming, even though they got the hardware right, so--
Nope! Proprietary. You have to deal with these horrendous, nonfunctional, incessantly crashing drivers for the ENTIRE DURATION of your ownership. These horrendous drivers clash with everything imaginable, and there's literally nothing you can do about it. Have fun.
Other Thoughts: Can you mistakes just release a version of this that allows for custom drivers? Seriously, if you can't do it right, let someone who doesn't suck do it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's fast, cheap, runs pretty cool. Sure, it's not extremely high end, but it's extremely price efficient.
Cons: Newegg can't seem to ship anything that isn't DOA. It seems half the things I order off this site are broken in some way. This isn't the fault of the manufacturer, though, so I'm only removing one.
Other Thoughts: I wish Newegg would do a better job with their quality control - I swear when they get things as returns they just slap them back on the shelves without a single refurb/repair. Gunna have to get a replacement, but I shouldn't have to do this every single time I order something.
Their motto should be something like "DIY to DOA in 4-7 business days." It even rhymes, more or less.
This'll probably be removed though, due to "Criticism of Newegg.com's service" being a review guideline, but it's pretty despicable to remove what you don't like.
Pros: It runs really well when it runs well. That's about the only way I can put it.
Cons: It's a power leech that runs extremely hot and this specific set does nothing but have driver crashes no matter how far you roll back. In essence, it's totally worthless. Don't waste your money.
Other Thoughts: Wanted to give it 2 on the assumption that you have a lottery-winning chance of not having an absolutely worthless, broken beyond belief card - but seeing how many other people in here are having random problems, somehow I think that chance is too low to even warrant 2. I thought PNY was excellent, but this is horrible.READ FULL REVIEW
