StarTech ICUSBAUDIO7D 7.1 Channels 16-bit 48KHz USB Interface Audio Adapter External Sound Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs I use Windows7 and have this item for 7 months now! 12/27/2011

This review is from: StarTech ICUSBAUDIO7D 7.1 Channels 16-bit 48KHz USB Interface Audio Adapter External Sound Card

Pros: I have bought two of these. One purchased 7 months ago and one bought for my Mom as a gift with her Christmas bundle from & DELL Direct Computers.

Cons: I only had an issue when trying to use this in an ASMedia usb 3.0 port; it worked initialy and then stopped working all together. Installed in native usb 2.0 port and there is no problems.

Other Thoughts: I have had the sound fail on me with computers in the past, before I became tech savvy. Since then I would never do without the old favorite PCI Creative Sound Blaster. But, these days you can't find them and the reliability in the reviews I have read of the newer pcie x1 Creative and ASUS products are frightful for such a very expensive add-on in todays marketplace. I have used C-Media in the beginning of 2005 with an old AMD 3400+ Campaq computer and it worked well and the driver was good, unlike anything from DYNEX which was garbage. Startech has brought me to a renewed respect for C-Media and this is a plug & play unit that does not require the disc for the C-Media6204 driver to be installed. Windows7 will set up the C-Media driver through Optional Updates automatically.

Microsoft Wireless Desktop 2000 M7J-00001 Black 104 Normal Keys USB RF Wireless Ergonomic Keyboard & Mouse
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I like low profile keys when giving something as this for a gift. Looks are as important as the quality of the item. Blue on function keys really enhances the classy overall appeal. Wireless. Padded wrist rest sealed the deal.

Cons: Cheap batteries. "What can you expect at this price point?" it would be nice if the owner's manual suggested Advanced Lithium batteries for extended life. Like I said this was a gift to my Mom and she is completely dependent on owner's manuals.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest to anyone else having trouble with gaps on the edges of your keyboard try Office Max or Staples for those 20mm felt pads with adhesive on the back. they come on a sheet of four. I used one of these on a keyboard corner and it worked wonders.

Dell P1911 Black 19

5 out of 5 eggs Matching this with a new DELL Ispiron620 i3 2120 HD 2000 graphics 12/25/2011

This review is from: Dell P1911 Black 19" 5ms Pivot, Swivel & Height Adjustable Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 DC 50,000:1 (1000:1)

Pros: Just look at it.

Cons: ( I sent a 3' usb extention cable home for the monitor's down link into the back of I/O panel. May not be needed, but I really doubt it.)

Other Thoughts: Love at first sight! I will probably buy another one for myself. My Mom is ready to experience technology in a new light and DELL is all she knows. Replacing everything of hers with new stuff; blue wireless Microsoft technology 2000 keyboard & mouse, Creative T20 Gigawatts 24w speakers, Startech usb 7.1 sound card (plug&play) and 1TB DELL i3 2120 Ispiron w/ this DELL 19" monitor P1911.
