Most Favorable Review

great HTPC card

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 512MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100291L
SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 (Cedar) 512MB DDR2 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100291L

Pros: Perfect entry level HTPC card. HD video and HDMI works great. Cheap. Silent. Has more features than cards at similar price point. Audio over HDMI.

Cons: My case fan is poor so I had to get a small fan to get the air moving over the heatsink.

Overall Review: The overclocking utility that comes with ATI's drivers is pointless for a low-end fanless card like this.

Most Critical Review

Slower than wireless G

Rosewill RNX-N180PCe Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Revision 1.1 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
Rosewill RNX-N180PCe Wireless Adapter IEEE 802.11b/g/n PCI Express Revision 1.1 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Low profile bracket

Cons: It was much slower than the wireless G card it replaced, was getting .6 mbps from speedtest.net, while the g card got 6 mbps. Totally unable to stream HD video, which is why I bought it. Even my Android phone got faster speeds from the router!

Overall Review: The motherboard quit recognizing (working) video card after installing this, removing the wireless card does not solve the problem. Constant troubles with the BIOS now as well.

Works well

6Ft 1080P Micro USB MHL To HDMI HDTV Adapter AV Adapter+ Black USB AC Wall Charger for Samsung Galaxy S4 S4 S 3 III i9300 Note 2 N7100

Pros: Allows me to view my S3 on anything with an HDMI port. Is plug and play.

Cons: The included power adapter for the wall feels flimsy

Overall Review: I like to use different Android mods and found out that custom Roms will often break driver support for this device.

Does what it says it does

Pros: Worked immediately with my Mac. The ejection feels fairly solid compared to some other HD docks.

Cons: Needed driver installs to work on Windows

Overall Review: Don't forgot to let drives spin down before you eject them!

it's ram!

Pros: No problems. Doesn't interfere with my huge heatsink.

Cons: none so far

Overall Review: Haven't tried to overclock it yet, will probably attempt in the future

Great board, no problems

Pros: Haven't had any issues, all the features are great.

Cons: Virtu MVP doesn't make as big of a diffidence as I hoped it would and some games won't run with it at all.

Overall Review: Have it booting up as a hackintosh as well

Fast shipping

I was worried that non-Newegg shipping was slow, but it was faster than Egg Saver. MHL adapter for my S3 works
