BitFenix Prodigy BFC-PRO-300-RRXKR-RP Fire Red Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This case was a breeze to work with. I loaded it up with 3 laptop hard drives and an SSD. I removed all of the hard drive trays since I was able to mount the drives to the case. This case is incredibly configurable.

Total Build:
ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
i7 3770
Radeon 7970
Seasonic SS-560KM
BitFenix Recon Fan Controller
BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm

Cons: Modular PSUs can be a tight fit, but I knew that going in.

The side with USB ports flexes slightly when adding or removing USB plugs.

Very minor cons so it still gets 5 eggs in my book.

GeIL Green 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1066 (PC3L 8500) Desktop Memory Model GG34GB1066C8DC
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It really is a green series. The RAM arrived in a recycled paper container. RAM is rated for 1.3v which is lower than anything I've seen. Works as expected

Cons: None other than MB supporting the voltage. See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: My motherboard won't let me set my RAM voltage to 1.3 so it's currently running at 1.5v. Just a heads up to make sure your MB supports it.

5 out of 5 eggs Two tuners! 11/12/2009

This review is from: Hauppauge 1229 WinTV-HVR-2255 Dual TV Tuner / Encoder

Pros: Works exactly as expected in Windows 7 with over the air HD. No issues at all installing the drivers from the provided CD.

Cons: None! Two tuners in one!

Other Thoughts: Because this card supports ClearQAM, WIndows 7 detected my setup as a ClearQAM, when I'm actually using antenna. Just configured it myself and it worked like champ. I picked up this card to replace two ATI Theater 650s which were my previous workhorses, but that card doesn't have official Windows 7 support. I've had trouble with other tuners not being able to correctly receive my over the air signal (two antenna signals, one VHF and the other UHF, being combined into one) but this card handles it without a problem. Just FYI for anyone with a special situation setup.
