Pros: Wow this is fast for video editing!

Cons: Wow this is the loudest laptop I have ever heard. It is like a jet taking off when i am rendering or editing a video.

I did a video which demos this on my YouTube channel, I am sure they will not let me link to it here.

Pros: Install was a very nice experience.

Cons: Running my system at idle for about an hour the fan on PSU goes from being completely off to 100% full in about 3 seconds then turns itself off right after that.

On my Kill-a-Watt meter the wattage is at a range of 130Watts to 140Watts running at idle, when the fan spikes the wattage remains in that range. When it spikes and I am monitoring both the CPU usage and the GPU as well I am not seeing any spikes, so to me it seems like it just a function of the PSU.

This is very annoying, I would rather it spin a little bit all the time then blast warm air out of it every 5 minutes. I have recently read on the web that others recently are having this issue as well, so if it is a bad production run I would like to get something different.

I have never returned an item to NewEgg so I have to figure out that process works with a "Standard" return.

Other Thoughts: i7-3930k with GTX680 overclocked.

3 out of 5 eggs Tuner Can Not Be Found From Sleepmode 07/17/2010

This review is from: AVerMedia AVerTVHD Duet - PCTV Tuner (A188 - White Box)

Pros: Seems to work great unless it is coming out of sleep mode.

Cons: My shows I have set up on WMC will not record because when WMC wakes up 10 minutes before the recording starts it can't find the tuner. I hate wasting electricity and sleep mode works great for saving power.

I contacted the company and they said it is a known issue and replaced it with another version that I think had two resistors replaced. "S1/S3 Issue"

I installed the replacement card but it is having the same issue. I reopened the trouble ticket and I am waiting to hear back.
