EVGA 256-P1-N400-LR GeForce 6200 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card
EVGA 256-P1-N400-LR GeForce 6200 256MB 64-Bit GDDR2 PCI Video Card

Pros: Picked this little thing up for an old socket 478 dell system (A Dimension 2400). Anyone who is familuar with the Dimension 2400 will more then likely know how the Dimension 2400, only has 8MB of video memory... Which is unfortunatly not really even enough to fullscreen a youtube video... Heck, it didnt even have the ability to display full 1080p before i installed this thing. The only reason I even still have the system is for some legacy gaming and school work. For gaming it works fine for what i do with it. Counterstrike 1.6 runs like a dream, Halo CE dose as well. Sim City 3000, and Rollercoaster Tyroon work fine too. Youtube works fine on this as well, will play back 1080p.. for the most part. it gets a tad jittery at times but i mean you cant exspect much from a system with 1GB of ram, a socket 478 P4 @ 3.06GHz and this thing in it. Over all im extremely satisfied.

Cons: None realy... Ill update right away if something bad comes up... I guess you can say that the drivers on the driver disc dont work well on windows XP, but really i dont know many people who will use the driver disc.

Pros: It works, that's all i needed it to do.

Cons: None, none at all.

Pros: Where do i begin. First i must say, spectacular value. For the price you pay you get clear picture, vivid colors and contrast, deep dark blacks, and a whole set of nice built in apps. The menus are simple to navigate and the tv is fairly easy to set up for people who have even the most basic levels of tech knowledge. The TV is a little slow to respond to commands, but ill get to that in the cons section. Wifi works well from my testing of it. Where i originally had it set up in the kitchen it was able to stream netflix in HQ from about 30 feet away through about 4 walls. Even with microwaves, ovens, and other electrical kitchen appliances going at once. Built in Youtube app is literally identical to the Youtube app on Xbox 360 so its not great, but it provides Youtube video streaming without the need of a 3rd party device. Other built in apps like Facebook and Twitter are not the best but there still rather convenient. I don't use the sites much but the way it gives you notifications through the tv from activity you have on your profile is rather interesting. Not very easy to post from though. Keyboards work well on the TV. I have an older Logitech wireless keyboard that works well on the TV and it saves quite a bit of time when im trying to search something on the youtube or netflix app. My laptop displays gorgeously through the HDMI that's onboard. I can play games and they come out nice and vivid. My Xbox 360 also works well on this but of course its not as good for eye candy as it is when playing on PC. But regardless its still a wonderful experience. and i stumbles upon something by mistake the other day, some android phones can stream video directly to the tv. I discovered this when watching a downloaded movie on my phone and the option popped up in the corner that if i wanted to stream the movie to the tv i could. And in apps like youtube and netflix it will let you use your phone like a remote to select what you are watching and to control the volume of the tv. It was a very pleasant surprise.

Cons: Alright as i said before, the tv is a little slow to respond to commands. By that i mean in the navigation of the menus with the remote or even a keyboard can feel rather slow and even clunky at times. The tv dosnt have the best viewing angles. If your too far to the right or left of the tv you can still see the pictures but it quickly becomes washed out. Its fine if its maybe just you and a few friends watching the tv from a couch or something but it seems to be designed to be looked at directly. As for con's, that's about it for me.

Overall Review: Its completely worth it. if your in the need for a TV of this size then this is the one for you in my opinion.

Wonderfull router, people are just stupid.

ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab
ASUS RT-AC66U Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router IEEE 802.11ac, IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n, IEEE 802.3/3u/3ab

Pros: MASSIVE amounts of bandwidth.

Cons: .:DOSE NOT SHIP WITH FIRMWARE:.

Overall Review: download the new firmware before unhooking your first router, and make shur you configure your IP manually before trying to upload it to the router. do this and you will have one of the fastest consumer grade routers in the world at your disposal :)

Works (even OC's alittle)

EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card 512-P3-1301-KR
EVGA GeForce 8400 GS 512MB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card 512-P3-1301-KR

Pros: All it needed to do was work in my dads daily use PC. on an ocasional friday night he will play a game of Team Fortress 2, and since his monitor is his 46'' tv he plays it at 1080p at low to mid settings with no problems. after some light overclocking we saw 3 to 4 FPS increases in that game, and the card still stayed cooler then 70c (which for a passive cooler, is amazing)

Cons: Driver installation went alittle wierd... the disc ended up beign corrupted in some way that it would let me install every feature but the ones i needed (lol, the video drivers). but anyone with a basic understanding of computers knows how to search for drivers on the internet, so its not a big problem.

More then satisfied

CM Storm Sonuz - Gaming Headset with 53 mm Drivers and Volume and Microphone Control
CM Storm Sonuz - Gaming Headset with 53 mm Drivers and Volume and Microphone Control

Pros: Highlights: -Very adjustable microphone. -Volume control and microphone toggle on Headphone wire. -DURABLE FABRIC CABLE SLEEVING! (saved this headset a good 10 time for me) -My big ears fit in the headphones. lol. This headset has fallen off my desk about 10 times and if the cable wasint fabric then it would then the headset would have most likely died (as many others have over the years with me) love this headset. the audio quality is amazing as well,

Cons: Disadvantages: -headset is big. -Ear peaces attract allot of dust and hair. Not too much is bad with this headset...
