Microsoft LifeCam Show 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs AVOID THIS PRODUCT!!! 08/08/2011

This review is from: Microsoft LifeCam Show 2.0 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam


Cons: I concur with every negative statement that others have posted. Color quality is absolutely aweful. Downloaded and installed latest everything from Microsoft site - everything still is aweful. Constantly flickers image quality like it can never auto adjust properly. Complete and total waste of money.

Other Thoughts: Shame on you Microsoft - you cannot tell me that any of your pre-release test results yielded anything other than only the poorest of quality that we all are reporting here. Gave one egg because cannot submit feedback with ZERO EGGS.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 3650 DirectX 10.1 100236UL 512MB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Obviously - QUIET (totally silent, ie no fan). Heat sink comes over the top of the card which is great as it doesn't cover the PCI slots below (especially appreciated in microatx case). Card is perfect for basic quiet system, dual monitor capable (2xDVI) and will handle any video apart from high end gaming (watching dvd's, hd streaming online, photoshop etc). For those who are curious, scores about 4k in 3dMark06, Sempron 2.7Ghz, 2GB 800Mhz RAM. In microatx cas, definitely need 80mm rear case fan (temp around 47-52C after running 3dMark06) without rear case fan always in high 60's under load. Temp usually around 39-41 idle. At $40 with free shipping, a great deal.

Cons: None (if you use the card for the performance level it is intended).

Hauppauge WinTV (HVR-1265) Hybrid TV Tuner w/ Video Recorder PCI-E x 1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low price but amazing results! NO setup or detection problems whatsoever. Installed now in Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Flawless playback. Picked up all digital stations direct from my digital TV antenna. HD is awesome! Perfect super simple and flawless integration with Windows Media Center. Digital recordings (HD) are awesome. Works so well with Media Center I do not even use Hauppauge TV viewer software.

Cons: Did not work in my WHS but easily transfer all video to WHS after recorded on PC.

Other Thoughts: Super economic way to transform your pc into DVR and HD TV (with the right monitor).
