Good

Genius G-Pen F610 6"x10" Ultra-Slim Tablet Stylish Finish with support on Mac/Win Vista
Genius G-Pen F610 6"x10" Ultra-Slim Tablet Stylish Finish with support on Mac/Win Vista

Pros: Good sensitivity, works will in Win 7 and Photoshop.

Cons: A bit over sensitive in Photoshop, and I have not found settings yet to adjust this. The pen "float" does not always work, causing unwanted taps now and then to get it back.

Overall Review: A good, cheep tablet. Since I am only a hobbyist with Photoshop, and just leaning it really, it works fine for me for now. But I can see if some one was using it a lot, this might not be the best buy to make.

Most Critical Review

Is this thing pre-programed to die..?

Rosewill RNX-N4 IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless-N 2.0 Gigabit Router (2T3R) Up to 300Mbps Data Rates/ WPA Personal and Enterprise, WPA2, 64 & 128 bit WEP, PSK, TKIP, AES Security/ Stream Engine Inside/ Blue LED Indicator
Rosewill RNX-N4 IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wireless-N 2.0 Gigabit Router (2T3R) Up to 300Mbps Data Rates/ WPA Personal and Enterprise, WPA2, 64 & 128 bit WEP, PSK, TKIP, AES Security/ Stream Engine Inside/ Blue LED Indicator

Pros: Worked good while it worked.

Cons: I got 9 Months out of mine, then like just about everyone else, one day it just overheated and died. I have MANY Rosewill products, and have had no trouble with any till now. Rosewill really needs to pull this thing off the market and fix it.

Overall Review: Come on Rosewill, this is nuts. No router should just last 6-8 months and then just go poooooffff.....

Genius G-Pen F509 (31100021100) 8.75" x 5.25" Active Area USB Graphics Tablet with Cordless Pen

Pros: It works...kinda No not really

Cons: Trying to use this with Photoshop or AutoCad on Win7 will only lead to great frustration. While trying to get it to work right, a buddy saw my woes, and brought me a old $30 Aiptek he had laying around that works 10 time better than the Genius..

Overall Review: Will just buy a Bamboo, which I should have done in the first place.....

NICE

ASUS VH232H Glossy Black 23" 5ms Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 ASCR 20000:1 w/Speakers & HDMI

Pros: Got this for my 80 year old Mother who's eyes are not so good anymore. Almost kept it for myself, and swapped it with my Samsung T220.... Crisp, clear and great color, and she loves it. I could no more trade her out of it than fly to the moon, even tho my Samsung cost much more.

Cons: none

Overall Review: I will have 2 of these setting on my desk by years end....

Great so far..

MSI DKA790GX AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard
MSI DKA790GX AM2+/AM2 AMD 790GX HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Plugged a Black 7850 Kuma, and 4gigs of OCT DDR2 1066 ram into it and was up and running on very first power up. OC'ed to 3.1 with a single flip of a switch, and is running very stable, with no bios updates. Triple booting into Win7-32, Win7-64, and Unbutu, and all installed flawlessly. Onboard ATI3300 is good enough to run Modern Warfare on Steam, but will be putting a better card in it later.

Cons: No hardware, disks, or manual in box. But I ordered this as an "Open Box", so cannot complain to hard. Found everything I needed on MSI web site, so no big deal.

Overall Review: I built this to be my "second computer", as I have a 3gig AMD dual-core, Nvida 9800 as my "main box". But I see right now, with a little more tweeking, and an video card upgrade, this could very will replace may main box.

Nice for the Price

AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition - Athlon 64 X2 Kuma Dual-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Processor - AD785ZWCGHBOX
AMD Athlon X2 7850 Black Edition - Athlon 64 X2 Kuma Dual-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM2+ 95W Processor - AD785ZWCGHBOX

Pros: Plugged this into a MSI DKA790GX motherboard, and was off and running on very first power up. OC'ed to 3.1 with a single flip of a dip switch and is very stable with stock fan.

Cons: This is a 4 core with 2 cores disabled. There is a way to check the disabled cores to see if they will run, but as of yet I have not found a way to do it.

Overall Review: For a budget build, this is a very good buy. On the right board and a little luck you could end up with a powerhouse.
