Works Good After you D/L Drivers from SYBA's Site

SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 shared port controller card Model SD-VIA-5U
SYBA PCI USB 2.0 4+1 shared port controller card Model SD-VIA-5U

Pros: I had issues with this card at first, as it wasn't always recognizing my new plug and play devices after I'd plug them into the USB ports. After going to SYBA's website and downloading the drivers from there, rather than installing the drivers with the cd, the card works just fine.

Cons: Drivers that came on CD didn't work well for my pc, had to download from Syba's website.

Powercolor Rebate a JOKE

PowerColor Radeon X1950PRO 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card X1950PRO512MBAC

Pros: Card itself is a good performer with one of the best cooling systems available for the 1950 lineup.

Cons: Rebate a JOKE. Rebate submission process is unnecessarily complicated. My rebate was unjustly denied due to my "promotion code being in-completed". Total nonsense, I filled out the rebate forms perfectly. I feel like I've been robbed of my rebate check. I will NOT be purchasing another powercolor product unless they promptly rectify this situation.

Overall Review: This card would have been a great value and plenty of bang for the buck had the rebate been paid out. Without the rebate it's just an average to poor value. Very dissatisfied.

Even better quality than expected

Sunbeam LAB-BA Black Lanparty Bag
Sunbeam LAB-BA Black Lanparty Bag

Pros: This lan bag is an excellent investment for just about anyone who moves their tower, even if it's only once or twice a year. It's much sturdier and thicker than the pictures make it out to be. Not only does it offer protection for your case, but the handle and strap make moving the case a lot easier. Since there are pockets on the side for your keyboard, mouse, and other accessories, you can practically carry your whole PC setup in one hand. (Minus the monitor of course)

Cons: Doesn't come with instructions, but looking at the pictures on Sunbeams product page helped a bit, plus it's not that difficult to figure out anyways.
