Pros: Simple, easy to use.
Cons: The software that it comes with "Grabbee" is whack but it shows up like any other video device in windows and you can use it with Virtualdub, VLC, etc.
Since I already had an audio interface I opted to get the video-only version to save some money but I constantly have AV sync issues with my recordings. I always have to go in with avidemux or mkvmerge and set the audio latency to fix it. And it varies from rip to rip. This is likely not a problem on the one with audio built-in.
Overall Review: If I knew then what I know now, I would have saved my money and went for the PCI-e one with the AV dongle cable that does HDMI/composite/component etc.
Pros: I smoke inside and have cats. This thing works great. I have friends who are allergic to cats. After I got this, dander wasn't a problem for them.
Cons: I was using this in a very small apartment and I started cooking meat on the stove regularly. The grease would smoke up and fill the apartment. It filtered it out pretty well but after I moved I could tell that the air coming out of it had a strong ceder sort of smell. The Hepa was entirely tinted brown.
Overall Review: Good for light smoke and dander. Keep extra carbon pre-filters on hand.
Pros: Best monitor I have owned. Full 1080 is now a requirement.
Pros: Works as expected. Developer mode for great justice!
Cons: The camera is not very good, specifically in poor lighting.
Overall Review: Anyone who has a problem with this thing didn't know what they were in for getting a chromebook.
Pros: Featureful , works, stable. I've never been into overclocking but it was too tempting with this. I have Phenom II X6 3.2ghz Black Edition overclocked to 3.8ghz. Technically it's not overclocked. The BIOS allows you to define your own multiplier. I set mine to 19x. Prime95 torture test approved.
Cons: None to speak of. I was concerned about the whole front-panel USB failure thing but I never had any issues.
Pros: Quiet, Good performance.
Cons: The facing isn't quite as black as my cd-rw and face plates.
Overall Review: Doesn't dispense carbonated beverages.
Pros: Plays GTA:SA and UT2K4 at 1280x1024. As previously stated, it definantly lags if you turn on antialiasing. On UT2K4 it runs pretty smooth even when you turn on the triliniar filtering. When I tried playing Psychonauts with it the cut scenes lagged really bad and gameplay lagged a bit, even at 640x480 but it dosn't give you too many optimization options.
Cons: For the price, none.
Comments: I had the same brand power supply before but I was stupid and hooked it directly into the wall. Well, a lightning storm came and BAM! I like this power supply. It does it's job perfectly and at a great price!
Comments: It's all I expected. I finally have all my data on one drive, before I was splitting it between 3 40 gig drives. The drive is operating great. Will probably get another one soon! Going to run out of room in about a month probably lol :)
Comments: I've been using it for a week with absolutely no problem. The actual ram is different than in the picture. The set I got has a heat sync on them, which is a good thing. Now I can finally run 20 programs at once without my computer getting mad slow! :D
