Cons: None

Overall Review: Hope they work well for a long time.

Stay away!

GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card GV-R545D3-1GI
GIGABYTE Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Low Profile Ready Video Card GV-R545D3-1GI

Pros: When it worked, it did the job.

Cons: Bought this 3 months ago because I thought my old card was causing blue screens. replaced MOBO,CPU & RAM and guess what - bad graphics card! I put my old Nvidiea card in and new system runs perfect! Now I see a bunch of bad reviews since I bought this in November. Now to get it replaced....

Overall Review: Not a gamer so I thought I was getting a decent card for I do but I guess I was wrong with this one. I tried different versions of Catalyst monitor since there's issues with that and even just the driver its self but no luck. Two days of messing around to find it.

Still a nice product but to much ads and unwabted notices

Kaspersky Total Security 2022 1 Year / 3 Devices - Download

Pros: Works well on Win 7 but not so well on Win 10

Cons: Harder to navigate the settings

Overall Review: I've used Kaspersky for at least 10 years now, probably longer but the last couple of years it's harder to navigate the settings and the annoying pop ups and ads will make this the last time I buy it. I shut all the notices and related stuff off but I still get bugged about stuff I have turned off. I put it on my Win 10 laptop only to find out it clashes with the windows software.

Awesome monitor

SAMSUNG 450 Series S24A450BW 24" 1920 x 1200 D-Sub, DVI LCD Monitor

Pros: The higher resolution was well worth the money to me. The matte screen and frame may seem dull and boring to most but for me it's a lot better due to reflection issues I have from a window behind me. Little or no reflection offsets any appearance gains. No dead pixels, accurate color rendering and even back lighting is my reasons for a 5 egg rating. This is my second Samsung and so far I really like it.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Not many reviews on this monitor out there so I took a bit of a chance but so far so good. I think the higher cost scares people away but I flt it was worth it. My older video card seems inadequate to handle this monitor but my 3 month old Gigabyte card bite the dust causing blue screens so I had to revert back. I'm going to look into a new or see how my RMA goes with Gigabyte.

Not bad but plan on fw upgrade

Pros: Good hardware and upgradable with DDWRT.

Cons: Terrible firmware. Wish it came in Black.

Overall Review: As with most reviews, I had to upgrade with DDWRT but I'm familiar with doing that. As another reviewer noted about using the right level firmware as well. I ran into the same issue. I did run into a problem with the wireless being unstable but changing channels cured it even though I live in the country with other people close enough to interfere. Been rock solid since then without a reboot or anything in over 2 months.

SLOW

OCZ Diesel 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBDSL16G
OCZ Diesel 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBDSL16G

Pros: Big capacity, small size, metal container.

Cons: SLOW - 4MB write/18 MB read.

Overall Review: I've had an older model of this same flash drive and it rocks at 4 times the read write speed of this new one. I wanted another one but am very disappointed in this. They got really cheap on these.
