PCI video card

EVGA 256-P1-N400-LR GeForce 6200 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card

Pros: Nice upgrade over built-in graphics chip that didn't support AERO in Windows 7. Faster than my INTEL 845GV4MR-ES built-in graphics chip. This computer is now some 8 years old, is a single CPU 2.8 ghz. Celeron D but still does quite well and serves my needs.

Cons: There were no "cons" or negative aspects with this card. No difficulties were experienced in the least. I knew ahead of time to disable the built-in graphics chip in my PC and selecting PCI video in the BIOS before connecting the monitor and starting my PC the first time after installing this card.

Tablet Carrying Case w/Stand & Keyboard

Pros: I like the case very much. My CTL SL10 tablet PC almost fits perfectly. Windows 7 saw the new keyboard and had no difficulty loading the driver for it without needing to connect to the internet to do so. My on-screen keyboard is good but not for long typing forays such as email or documents. Excellent price. Nicely made.

Cons: To make my SL10 fit I had to trim some of the left-hand "stop tab" removing about 1/4 of the bottom side. The restraint tabs are metal inside and bending them with pliers netted the additinal 1/4" needed to nestle my thicker-than-usual CTL SL10 tablet into the case. The USB cord could have been a couple of inches longer, I have to run it behind the tablet diagonally in order to reach the upper left side USB port on the SL10.

Overall Review: The restraint tab located at the top center could have used a "bite style" cutout for the webcam to peek through. I may not be using the cam much though.
