Pros: Having had poor results with IDE to SATA converters in the past, I was skeptical about this one. However, this adapter really works! Installation was easy for Vista with no problems. Packaging included a cable adapter which made it possible to use this adapter even if you had no SATA connectors on your Power Supply. I have been running a SATA Hdd for over a month with no problems. My system was an older Dell Dimension 2400 with no SATA connectors on the motherboard and no power supply SATA connectors.
Cons: Don't know of any.
Overall Review: Does what it claims to do...run a SATA Hdd on an IDE system!
Pros: I am amazed at the performance increase that this video card delivers.I installed it in a Dell Dimension 2400 that I recently upgraded. MyWindows Vista Experiece Index rating increased to 5.9 for graphics and 5.2 for gaming graphics! I can actually play some modern games on this system now...like Kings Bounty Crossworlds. The card was easy to convert to a normal size for a mid tower PC. The installation DVD made it easy to install.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: This is the video card you need for an old PC that only has PCI slots.
Pros: works fine for win xp.
Cons: No drivers for win98se! The RiDATA website does not have win98se drivers for this model. Also...tech support had me send the identification # to them and they said they have no such model in their database for Win98se.
Overall Review: I bought this flash drive specifically because it was claimed to be compatible with win98se! Hence only one egg.
Pros: Worked right out of the box! I did not bench test it, but it seems very sturdy with steady wattage. A very good value for the sale price. AT power supplies are difficult to come by...especially one rated at 400W. Thank you NewEgg.
Cons: I agree with the "bad quality control" reviewer. The schematic wiring on the power box is indeed of different colors from the actual switch wiring. I was lucky to have mine attached...but I had to hope it was wired right! Also, there is only one floppy disk connector.
Overall Review: 4 stars because of the above mentioned cons.
Pros: I love this motherboard! It has been used daily for about 18 months and has withstood all kinds of abuse... from over clocking to power failures ...even my cat! But what I like about it the most is the VERSATILITY. It has a 512mg AGP card, an old Celery 3.3 gb, IDE hdd..etc. I recently upgraded the memory. If you have spare parts hanging around, then you should consider this mobo for an inexpensive build!
Cons: Perhaps a higher memory capacity?
Overall Review: A full ATX with an AGP port and IDE and SATA? Very rare jewel these days!
