2 out of 5 eggs periodic glitches 12/15/2009

This review is from: Rosewill RC-USB-PS2-BG 6" USB to Dual PS/2 Adapter Cable - Beige

Pros: works.... sometimes

Cons: On an intermittent basis, keystrokes cease to be conveyed to the PC; sometimes during these glitches, the last keystroke gets repeated many times. After a few seconds, operation is restored (although the keystrokes in the interim are lost)

Other Thoughts: USB to PS/2 adapters seem to be hit or miss. I've bought models from four different manufacturers; two of
the four have this phenomena; the other two work properly

1 out of 5 eggs decent hardware let down by junk software 02/14/2008

This review is from: Pinnacle 7-85428-22238-7 PCTV HD Card NTSC/ATSC/ClearQAM/FM TV Tuner PCI w/ Mini Remote

Pros: 8VSB (off-air antenna) reception is strong

Cons: The Windows software that comes with the PCTV is atrocious. The user interface is klunky and inconsistent. Far more importantly, the HDTV video decoding sucks every CPU cycle you have, even with full video card hardware acceleration. Even then, the picture stops and starts. Worse still, when you try to record, the video decoding starves the CPU of the cycles needed to record, so the recording has disruptions every few seconds.

Other Thoughts: Alternative software like WatchHDTV or SageTV can be used, but then one loses the card's ClearQAM capability.

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: very particular on which media it will burn well

Other Thoughts: Despite upgrading to the latest firmware, the drive does not work well with certain media. I have a bunch of TDK and Verbatim DVD+R media. It works fine with the TDK, but with the Verbatim, it struggles to read at 0.25x the very disc it just wrote.
