AVerMedia AVerTV Combo PCIe MCE ATSC/NTSC/QAM Tuner Card w/MCE Remote & L-P Bracket 7 95522 96066 5 PCI-Express x1 Interface

Pros: Drivers and viewing software, easy to install on WindowsXP. Picture clarity is outstanding. I selected this card due to it's pci express x1 slot, and it runs great on that slot, and leaves my PCI slots open for other cards. Really great TV card

Cons: None

Overall Review: None

Most Critical Review

H61MU3

BIOSTAR H61MU3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
BIOSTAR H61MU3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: It runs well with 4GB of Patroit DDR3 1333 RAM and the i3-2100 3.1Ghz

Cons: BIOS need to be updated. Stock BIOS will give errors so you can't save changes. This error is noted on the Biostar site. BIOS update is available at the Biostar site. New BIOS runs fine.

Overall Review: Installed Sabayon Linux. Make sure you have SATA hard drives set to ACHI. This could have been a 5 out of 5 stars if it wasn't for the stock BIOS

Asus RT-N56U

ASUS RT-N56U Wireless Router Dual Band N600 Multimedia Ultra Slim Gigabit 802.11a/b/g/n support USB Storage, Print and Media Server

Pros: Easy setup. I didn't need to install any software, just went to the IP address to set it up. Signal is quite strong and extends quite a ways if you set it upright.

Cons: It came with really old firmware so I had to flash it. You flash it through the setup program. Everything went smooth while flashing it.

SanDisk Ultra 2.5" 120GB SATA II Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SDSSDH-120G-G25

Pros: It's really fast. I installed it in an Asus 1215T laptop I bought from NewEgg. 10 second bootup time. I installed Ubuntu Linux on it.

Cons: Hard to get the laptop to boot after the installation. I must have cleared the CMOS a dozen times. Finally it went through.

Overall Review: So far it's great.
