Pros: Nice keys make it easy to type. Has multimedia buttons.
Cons: After only a few weeks of moderate use the ink on the "E" is already starting to wear off a little. I hope this keyboard lasts a while before all the letters rub off the keys. The tilt legs are small and doesn't give enough angle for my tastes.
Pros: Reasonably priced and it works fine
Cons: poor picture quality and terrible reception
Overall Review: Not nearly as good as the kworld ub435-Q that I am currently using
Pros: They sound nice with a full rich sound
Cons: Mine lasted 3 days. I threw away the original box so I can't return to newegg. I have to ship them to Cyber Acoustics at my expense.
Overall Review: what happened to good cheap speakers?
Pros: 64 bit works flawlessly so far.
Cons: Microsoft is a big evil corporation but aren't they all?
Overall Review: if you are debating between 32 and 64 bit go ahead and get the 64 bit it works great.
Pros: I plugged it in and it works.
Cons: the occasional failed burn but if i turn down the write speed below the Max speed recommended by the media then it seems to work just fine.
Overall Review: I'm using Nero 7 and Windows 7 64bit to burn discs, as stated above i turn down the write speed to below the max speed. It may take an extra few minutes but I expect that in a low cost device.
Pros: low cost 1080P monitor. Looks good works good. I also own an Acer x233h and I cant tell these 2 screens apart.
Cons: These have limitations just as most flat panels do. Blacks are not always perfect and there can be times when i notice color banding. The piano black finish attracts lint and dust but that is hardly a con.
Overall Review: These are not really designed for graphic artists and such but for 90% of regular users it is a fantastic low cost monitor. It is bright but instead of trying to tune the monitor use your video card driver to turn gamma down, i seem to prefer .85(default is 1.00)
Pros: working fine with GIGABYTE GA-MA78LMT-S2
Cons: none really
Overall Review: plugged 2 of these in and it worked fine from the first boot. Recognized as 1066 even though I am only using them with a Semperon 140
Pros: I have had several low cost cases and this one seems a bit better than most. No sharp edges inside like other cheap cases. Plenty of air circulation for light to moderate duty PCs, heavy duty gamers may wish for a larger rear fan but this works fine for me.
Cons: I am not a fan of the clear side panel but that is not really a con.
Overall Review: for a budget PC build this works fine
Pros: seems to work fine so far.
Pros: Windows 7 installation went without a hitch.
Cons: only 2 memory slots but i knew that when i ordered it. Onboard video is just OK but again that is to be expected.
Pros: I plugged it in and it works. Time will tell if this was a good bargain or not.
Cons: none yet
Overall Review: this is in an older ATX 1.5 machine so I didnt need anything to fancy
Pros: Low cost and Low power. This processor is fine for anyone who wants to do average computing tasks i.e. internet browsing, office documents, etc. At 45w it stays cool compared to other more powerful CPUs. Its no speed demon but it is also not a turtle, just what i expected from a CPU in this price range.
Overall Review: chugs along just fine using windows7 64 bit. It may occasionally hit 100% processor usage but I am still impressed.
Pros: Moves a good amount of air.
Cons: Makes some noise. This is not for HTPC's or anyone who is concerned about noise.
Pros: Its nice and big. 1920x1080 res looks fabulous with Win 7. This monitor has displayed every res I have tried so far so gaming in non-native res is not a problem. No dead or stuck pixels. After tuning it looks really good(don't forget gamma settings in the video driver).
Cons: I upgraded from a 19"CRT so there are noticeable limitations when switching to a flat panel. After a week or so I was used to the minor differences and think this upgrade was well worth it considering a CRT of equal size would crush my desk.
Overall Review: true 16:9 ratio is nice(not 16:10). ATSC TV looks fabulous on this monitor. NTSC TV looked better on my CRT but at this point that is not much of an issue. I'd recommend a nice video card if you want to run everything in 1920x1080.
Pros: Attractive look seems well built. Makes good coffee.
Cons: the basket that holds the filter is not removable
Overall Review: this seems like a better product than the cheap coffee makers available at my local stores
Pros: Low cost card that runs my games at 1920x1080.
Cons: some driver issues with Win7 64 but as this is still an evaluation copy I did not subtract any stars. Works fine with Vista 32.
Overall Review: nice upgrade from an 8500 GT(128-bit)
Pros: easy config booted first try auto detected everything.
Cons: GPU/southbridge runs hot but so far it hasn't caused an issue
Overall Review: worked flawlessly with XP 64 bit, Vista 32 bit has some sound issues I haven't figured out yet so I knocked off an egg.
Pros: The price was right. Vent over the processor is a nice touch. Rear fan is relatively quiet with a pass-thru molex connector so that it did not take up a connector from my power supply. Looks better than I expected for a case at this price.
Cons: flimsy materials, sharp edges inside the case, buttons seem cheap.
Overall Review: Its just what I wanted, a cheap case that works fine. At this price you cant go wrong.
