Excellent cooler

Rosewill 15.4" - 17" Notebook Cooler with 4-Port USB Hub RNA-7600W

Pros: Fans are quiet. Fits my HP Pavilion dv6-1030us 16" laptop (14.9" x 10.15") perfectly. I just used it on my lap in bad and it doesn't hurt.

Cons: I just started using it, but I can't think of any at the moment. Although expected, it is big.

Love the quiet keyboard

Pros: I love the quiet keyboard. I like the way you can set the LED color. I recently purchased the Microsoft Sidewinder X4 keyboard, but I didn't like the noisy keys.

Cons: Keyboard light not that bright, but it's no problem seeing in a very dark room. Keyboard feet to tilt not that high, so I had to put things under the feet.

Overall Review: I should have just stuck with Logitech accessories. I've always been happy. I have a MX-518 gaming mouse, which i've had for years and never had problems. I also Pro9000 webcam. I was looking at various lighted gaming keyboards and originally selected Microsoft Sidewinder X4 after various reviews. I realided I didn't like the noisy keyboard. I decided on the G110 and realized that should have been my first choice.

Pros: The lighted keyboard is bright. Can be seen in a dimly lit room.

Cons: Only one color (RED), though not really a big con.

Overall Review: Quieter keys. I switched to the Logitech G110 for quieter keys and you can set the color of the lights on the keyboard.

Excellent card for Vista x86 & x64

Pros: Optical and Coaxial for SPDIF in and Optical for SPDIF out. Works well with Vista Ultimate x86 & x64. Easy install & config.

Cons: Deceiving from description that Newegg states Optical and Coaxial for SPDIF in, but if you look at the diagram, it only has Optical and Coaxial for SPDIF out. Coaxial for SPDIF in is internal for MIDI. Didn't come with Coaxial cable.

Overall Review: I use it on my Vista media PC to play all my DVD movies, which I've converted to MKV files. Running out of room for DVD, so I decided to make a media PC.

Love the laptop!!!

HP Laptop Pavilion Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit dv6-1030us
HP Laptop Pavilion Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 16.0" Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit dv6-1030us

Pros: Powerful processor, lots of memory (upgradeable to 8gb), HDMI, 4 USB ports, 2 Headphone jacks, & eSATA. I've always been biased with HP products. I have a Pavilion Elite m9402f desktop & an HP Compaq dx2450 Microtower.

Cons: As mentioned earlier, the offset keyboard took a little getting used to. Just don't like the shiny keyboard, but neither warrants a lower rating.

Overall Review: Originally was going to get the HP G60-230US. After some browsing, I noticed the dv6-1030us, which had everything the G60-230US was missing (eSATA, 4Gb, 4 USB ports, 2 Headphone jacks). At the time, they were both the same price $649, so I chose the dv6. I'm glad I did my research. I reformed the laptop and installed Vista Ultimate. All the drivers necessary were found on the download site for the laptop, with the exception of HP 3D DriveGuard. You will see an unknown device with something like ACPI/HPQ0004 or maybe ACPI/HPQ0006. Just go to softpedia and search for HP 3D DriveGuard.

Works great!!!

Pros: Quick and easy to install. I use it on several machines. Installed in a PCI-e x8 slot on an old Dell PowerEdge SC420 (P4 3.4Ghz) server running Vista Ultimate 32 bit, which will soon be converted to Windows 7. Installed in a PCI-e x1 slot on an HP Pavilion m9402f (Quad Phenom 2.3Ghz) desktop running Vista Ultimate 64 bit.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: Went to http://www.siliconimage.com/support/searchresults.aspx?pid=32&cat=15&os=0 and downloaded the latest bios (v7.5.07), but unsure which file to flash with. There are 3, 7507.bin, b7507.bin, & r7507.bin).
