This review is from: VANTEC NXP-205-BK Black Fan Controller Panel
Pros: Has worked great for 5 or so years in my first custom case.
Cons: 3 of the 4 knob LEDs no longer work.
Not enough cables with unit. I never checked with vantec on the correct ones, just solved the problem myself.
Other Thoughts: Did not buy at Newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1 (ACM)
Pros: Performs great. Have more room now on my desk since this replaced a 19" crt monitor. Settings are easy to change. Display quality is good
Cons: maybe lack of vertical height adjustment. Easy enough to work around though.
Other Thoughts: Neither good or bad, I spent a good amount of time changing video properties till I had it like I wanted it, mostly trying out different settings before settling on what I liked best.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAPPHIRE Radeon X1650PRO DirectX 9 100275L 512MB 128-Bit GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card
Pros: Card installed easily as did the driver and the radeon control panel. The card performs great. I've never had an issue with it getting hot either when I've taxed it hard.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: I wanted to improve my video performance for games, CAD, videos and internet page loading. Went from an early ATI Radeon 7000 series AGP card to this. It has been a huge improvement to my system (P4 1.5GB processor, 1.3GB 133 ram, 200 GB HD, XP Home ed. Case is cooled by 2 rear fans and 1 side fan by card slots). It has allowed me to play some of my flight simulator games that had some bad video issues before. Overall video performance has greatly improved including web page loading. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with the difference in this card's level of performance vs my old card though.READ FULL REVIEW
