Pros: been using it to make voip calls. works great for that, listeners report decent quality. of course it's nothing great, but at $2 you can't expect much
Pros: decent router, worked very well to support 4 people with heavy downloading and online gaming.
Cons: it died towards the end of the first year of usage, however it was kept on the floor in a college apt. lots of spills, dust, and other debris could have caused it, so i can't really blame the router
Pros: very good headphones. deep bass, clear highs. of course don't except $30 sennheiser performance out of them, but i would definitely say they are a steal for the price.
Cons: none so far, the earpiece itself is a little bulkier than others, but still very comfortable fit
Pros: The card has all you can ask of a PCI bus slot card. Fast core clock (GPU) speed 450Mhz, 256Mb DDR2, 4 vertex shaders and 4 pixel pipelines, 128-bit memory interface,DirectX 9.0 & Shader Model 3.0. TV-out. In general the card is good enough to support the latest game, although perhaps not at the highest settings. Still this is very impressive for a PCI card.
Cons: The obvious flaw is that the card is in fact a PCI bus card, an outdated slot type. Only so much can be expected from a PCI slot, however this card really does unleash the full potential of the PCI slot.
Overall Review: Runs NFS Carbon on full settings at 800*600 resolution completely smoothly. Even allows for motion blur due to shader model 3.0 support. Runs HL2 perfectly. This card beats the VisionTek version because of the 128-bit interface, and because DiamondMM provides a free overclocking utility for their cards, at their website. This card beats its competitor in the PCI slot market, the GeForce 6200, because of its fast 450Mhz core clock and because of its 4 vertex shaders, versus the 3 of the GeForce 6200.
