Tripp Lite knows power

Tripp Lite 375 W Car Power Inverter with 2 Outlets, Auto Inverter, Ultra Compact (PV375)
Tripp Lite 375 W Car Power Inverter with 2 Outlets, Auto Inverter, Ultra Compact (PV375)

Pros: Excellent product! We finally found one that will run my laptop and charge it too. This is the fourth inverter we've had and 2 of the others were more expensive. But this is the only one that will do it and it does it well.

Cons: None

Most Critical Review

Bad stick(s) out of the box

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL6D-4GBNQ
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL6D-4GBNQ

Pros: It was very inexpensive and it looks very slick for those that want the inside to look "dressy".

Cons: I ordered 2/ea of these which equals 4 x 2GB sticks. I installed linux and it kept locking up. I fought with it for a day and a 1/2 thinking it was something with Linux. But I pulled 3 of the 4 sticks and it worked fine. I ran memtest86 and it found there are definitely bad sticks. I will have to swap it out and run tests individually to figure out which ones are bad.

Overall Review: Aren't memory tests done prior to leaving. This unfortunately is not my first problem with G Skill, but it could be my last. BTW, my computer with the 1 good stick runs very well.

Comments: What can you say about Intel. Everything seems to be built around their processors, so there's no flaws here.

VERY Nice!

Comments: I love this card. I'm a Halo nut, and you can run this maxed out and it runs smooth as silk and the graphics on Halo came alive! You can see the reflection as you move around off of one of the shiny weapons. Very detailed and very smooth! Very good price.

Nice basic scanner

Comments: While it is not the fastest scanner around, it runs very well on my 1.4ghz laptop with WinXP Pro. Absolutely no blips or problems of any kind other than being a tad slow. Thumbs up in my book especially at Newegg's price.

Solid!

Comments: This is a great bang for the buck HD. Quiet, reliable, fast(for IDE), and what else do you need(?).
