4 out of 5 eggs Makes my IBM T42 S M O K E!!! 03/07/2011

This review is from: Transcend 8GB 2.5" PATA SLC Industrial Solid State Disk TS8GSSD25-S

Pros: Well made product with a solid warranty. Uses SLC chips. Super fast drive. Just enough room to load Windows XP.

Cons: The size vs. price. Transcends website could bring more to the table as far as support. All the information that I got to tweak the drive was gained from using google. Out of the box the drive is okay, but with about 6 tweaks it smokes. Nowhere on the Transcend website does it provide help in this area.

Other Thoughts: If you were toying around with the idea of purchasing a used T-series IBM laptop, and putting an SSD drive in it...this drive is a perfect match. I have to say that I am amazed at how well my T42 with an upgraded 2ghz Pentium M CPU, and 2 gb of memory operates. If I didn't know any better, I could swear I was using a newer laptop with more impressive specs, i.e. dual core, faster memory, etc...Definitely makes this old machine smoke, and well worth it in my opinion. The T42 is a great laptop, and with this SSD, it really is pleasure to use. In addition, I purchased a SATA HDD caddy for the hot swappable drive, and dropped in a 320gb 7200rpm 16mb cache Seagate HDD. Let me tell you, this setup works like a charm...

5 out of 5 eggs Great price, great product, lot's of display options. 04/23/2009

This review is from: SCEPTRE 32" 1080p LCD HDTV X32BV-FullHD

Pros: Great display, several display modes and options to toy around with. Sound is also great, really no complaints. I picked this same unit up locally for $400 out the door (sweet!). For that price I figured I'd give it a chance. I previously had another no namer from Costco that had a very clear display, but lacked all the features that this one has; Analog audio in/out, digital audio out, component video in, in HD, 2 hdmi ports, vga in, oh ya did I mention 1080p? The viewing angle is also good. I use this for my htpc for my bedroom and its bright, clear, and sharp. I also play xbox 360 games on this at 1080p and no complaints.

Cons: I would have to say the surface sheen of the lcd display produces a glare. If there is any bright light in the background, you will see a slight reflection of it. Remote needs to point directly to sensor to operate.

Other Thoughts: Other than fixing the glare on the screen from background light, none.

Pros: After a 30 min search for drivers, it works flawlessly. I'm using XP 64 and it smokes. Like the fact that there's room to grow CPU wise. It's been a while since i've owned an asus board, this one seems to not have any bugs.

Cons: Bought as an open box, and it came with only the board. But that's to be expected! Thought I would luck out with at least a driver disk.

Other Thoughts: The asus website is a bit slow, but I was able to find everything I needed to get this thing up and running smoothly.
