IOGEAR GUC2025H USB 2.0 to HDMI External Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Works suprisingly well! 05/09/2013

This review is from: IOGEAR GUC2025H USB 2.0 to HDMI External Video Card

Pros: Picked it up for 35 with a free HDMI cable. Installed in windows 7 without using the driver CD, just had windows search it's online database for the driver and it has worked great streaming video to a 720p HDTV. Audio quality is good, would purchase again if needed another.

Cons: Blue LED bar on the top is very bright, but I turn it upside down to mitigate this issue.

Other Thoughts: Video was stuttering at first due to high CPU usage of McAfee virus scan on a friend's laptop. Uninstalled that CPU hog and installed the free Microsoft Security Essentials. Configured the background scanner to limit CPU usage to 10% and there hasn't been any issues even if the scanner kicks in while using the IOGEAR USB to HDMI adapter.

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 400 (PC 3200) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F1-3200PHU2-2GBNS
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Reliable, Fast, and worthwhile upgrade to any DDR(1) motherboard. Runs CAS 2 @ 333 MHz or CAS 2.5 @ 400 MHz perfectly stable on ASUS A7N8X nforce2 platform.

Cons: None, other than heat spreader issue (read below), these modules work great!

Other Thoughts: I purchased a set of these open box a couple years ago. The heat spreader on one of the modules was installed slightly off center preventing it from fitting into the memory slot, most likely why they were returned. I removed the retaining clips, centered it properly, reinstalled the clips and they've been trouble free ever since.

BlueAnt SUPERTOOTH LIGHT Bluetooth Handsfree Speakerphone White
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good clarity when conversing over the phone while driving, volume is plenty loud, excellent battery life, great value for the price.

Cons: I purchased this as a gift and the recipient's bluetooth output on their phone must be a bit weaker requiring them to keep their phone in close proximity to the unit (i.e. the phone placed on the passenger's seat is far enough away to cause interference).

Other Thoughts: I've owned the black version of this product for a year now without the sensitivity issue mentioned above.
