Kworld Kanvus Life 106 10
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works well for the price. See usage tips below.

Cons: Without the drivers, Windows doesn't sense the pen tip pressure. But the Kanvus drivers don't support a multi-monitor setup (they map the pen to reach over the whole screen area, making it useless).
However, with some searching I discovered that the drivers for the Genius "G-Pen F610" will also work with the Kanvus 106 (same chipset apparently), and the Genius drivers properly support binding to a single monitor, plus they support Windows 8. So I highly recommend using the Genius drivers.

Other Thoughts: The pen sensing gets unreliable when the battery gets low. So if you see bad sensing, change the pen battery.

5 out of 5 eggs Works great 12/08/2010

This review is from: Kworld Kanvus Life 106 10" x 6.25" Active Area USB 1.1 Tablet

Pros: Works great in Windows 7 64-bit. I use it with GIMP; GIMP recognized it immediately and it works fine. This is my first tablet, so I can't really compare it to others, but its tracking and pressure sensitivity is more precise than I am.

Cons: None

SYBA PCI-Express 2-Port Serial and 1-Port Parallel Combo Card - RoHS Model SD-PEX50030
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works properly for standard serial transmissions; effectively the same as a USB-to-serial converter. Worked on Windows 7 with drivers from CD.

Cons: It outputs +/-5V, like USB-to-serial converters do, rather than the +/-12V that is standard for built-in PC serial ports. That means it didn't work with my device (a JDM programmer for PIC microcontrollers). For the price, I expected it to duplicate the full PC standard.

Other Thoughts: It will work fine if you're doing standard serial TX/RX, but don't buy it for older devices that rely on full use of the serial port specification. (I ended up just giving up on getting my device to work, and bought a newer equivalent. Not sure if the other PCI-to-serial cards on here would have worked better or not.)
