Most Favorable Review

Big display for a modest price

Pros: I like the bright 17" display and easy on the wallet price for what you get. I don't require a Power House computer and this gives me more than I need. Easy transition for me from XP to Windows 7.

Cons: Sound volume*** (see other thoughts). You need to download the Lightscribe software (not pre-installed) if you want to PRINT/LABEL directly onto the special Lightscribe DVD's. It will burn any DVD tough.

Overall Review: *** By changing the Windows 7 "default" sound setting in Control Panel I was able to get sound notifications I could hear easily. Test them all to find one you like. I plug in speakers if I want to listen to music with good sound quality. I removed all the bloatware and tweaked other settings to my liking easily.

Pros: Works GREAT! I've got USB2 on my USB1.1 Notebook now. Installed Software first and then inserted card. Took less than 10 minutes. Can use my new USB2 Camera without a problem.

Cons: USB card covers the wireless internet card so you have remove the USB to surf. Not a big deal to me now that I can use the Camera. I just insert it when needed.
