Great card

ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card ENGTX560Ti448DC2/2DIS/1280MD5

Pros: Great card. Runs fast and quiet with 2 1080p monitors.

Cons: Large. Not a con really, but you have to know what you're getting. I had to remove my drive cage to get the last .5 inches and also lost 1 SATA port that was completely covered. More importantly, this card can only run 2 of its 4 outputs at a time. The many reports of hte 590 handling 3 monitors at once would lead one to believe that the 500 series is capable but if you want to run 3 or more monitors off a 560 get two and SLI them.

Overall Review: I didn't throw any games at it but was disappointed to learn that I could not run the Display port + 2x DVIs at the same time.

Great Mobile Keyboard

Pros: Excellent mobile keyboard. I travel with this keyboard and whether I use just he 10-key or both I can mix and match for my particular needs at the time. I often connect my laptop to a separate, larger monitor at customer's sites and the size, feel, and lack of dongle for this keyboard combo is excellent.

Cons: The 10-key goes to sleep too soon. I would gladly run through batteries 3x faster if it meant better response. The Ins key requires a Fn press which, for those of us in heavy VMWare usage, can be a little annoying. In the end, the 10-key sleep time is the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars.

Great TV

Pros: Very thin, lightweight, 4 HDMI inputs, great picture for the price.

Cons: Single non HDMI input.

Overall Review: Great TV. Very easy to hookup and use and the performance is amazing. The picture is sharp and contrast is great. I use mostly HDMI inputs from my Xbox 360, Zune, etc. but I do wish there was at least one more Component/Composite input for a few of my older devices (Original Xbox, Wii, etc.) The 720p shows at close range with a fuzzier picture but at actual watching distance it's as clear as could be. 32" is a good size for 720p, anything larger and you really need 1080p for a sharp picture. I haven't plugged it into my computer yet but based on what I've seen it should make a solid monitor.
