SYBA PCI-Express 1394a FireWire 4 ports Controller Card Model SD-PEX-NEC4F
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Flaky.

Other Thoughts: I just removed this card from my system after about six months of trying to troubleshoot another problem which looked unrelated.

Turns out that this card had been dying a very slow death for more than a year, and once I got it out of my system, I was able to see that it had been causing all kinds of problems since the day I installed it.

I cursed this card and then tossed it in the trash.

You get what you pay for.

ASUS VS Series VS247H-P Black 23.6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: If you like bright, this monitor is VERY bright. Whites were completely pure. If it had worked, I got the feeling this would be a very nice monitor (though I would have tried to find a way to tone down the brightness, which actually hurt my eyes after a few minutes).

Cons: The stand is OK if you don't touch the monitor. But if you press one of the buttons (such as power), you have to push up from below, and the stand isn't wide enough to handle this. The monitor tips sideways very easily. So pushing buttons is essentially a two-handed operation: one hand on the button, and the other steadying the monitor.

Also, this monitor does not automatically select the input based on what cable you plug in. You have to set that manually.

Other Thoughts: On my unit, the text was fuzzy and there was a 1-inch black border all around the image when using the HDMI input. When using the VGA input, the image looked great, but the monitor disconnected and reconnected about every 60 seconds. Clearly, I got a defective unit.

Also, be sure to note that the DVI connector is DVI-D. A DVI-I cable (which is what I have) will not work with this monitor. (If you don't know the difference, look it up before buying or your old DVI cable may not work.)
