EVGA GeForce 8800 GT DirectX 10 512-P3-N801-AR 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works in my Dell XPS 400 - easy to install - great quality - not very noisy

Cons: Wish I could fit it in my HP m9300t

Other Thoughts: This card is easy to install. At first I used the drivers that came with the DVD. The next day I downloaded updated drivers from Nividia and the card runs much quieter. Nividia must have a lower fan speed. I love the card and I think for around $130 it is an excellent value. If you are thinking about getting either this card or the 9800 GT, get the 8800 GT on sale. The 8800 GT has similar specs and many of the early 9800 GT cards just seem to be renamed 8800 GT. So you might save yourself some money. If you are not a heavy gamer but want something nice for graphic processing and watching DVDs on your computer then get this card.

SAMSUNG 2493HM Glossy Black 24
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very bright, nice colors.

Cons: Sharpness of the display is not comparable to my old 19 inch ultrasharp Dell monitors. I am running the Samsung monitors on a different computer than the Dell monitors so this might be a factor, but from a monitor that costs almost $500 I expect nothing but perfection regardless of the computer.

Other Thoughts: For looking at photos these monitors are stunning. But I do not find them as comfortable to use for word processing as I find my old three year old 19inch Dell Ultrasharps. The Samsung monitor seems to lack in sharpness in comparison to the Dell. I might have received a bad monitor, but that would be a risk potential buyers should be aware of.
I have also found the Samsung monitors to be bleeding a little on both sides. It is not really noticeable, but if you are a borderline OCD perfectionist, then again you might consider this.
Overall I love the size of the 24 inch display, but I am not impressed by the quality of the monitor.
Also, the stand looks nice but is a little bit bigger than maybe necessary. Space on my desk is precious real-estate and the Samsung monitor uses quite a bit of it.
My suggestion is give Samsung a try, but be prepared to not like this monitor and return it.

Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2008 3 user
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs It sucks :( 05/21/2008

This review is from: Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2008 3 user

Pros: Company has a great reputation

Cons: I have been using Symantec Antivirus for at least five years. Recently the software found a virus on my computer, but can't remove it. Everything I tried failed. It might be a vista issue, but what is the point in having virus protection software if it does not remove viruses.

Other Thoughts: Don't buy Symantec. Check online reviews. There are plenty of long time Symantec users who are very unhappy with Symantec's latest products. Something must have gone horribly wrong with that company. I am now trying Kaspersky. Hopefully that works, or I am hosed :(.
