1 out of 5 eggs ASUS Rebate Team Strikes Again 01/14/2014

This review is from: ASUS RT-N12/D1 Wireless-N300 3-in-1 Router/AP/Range Extender IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: Works well enough, average range, would've been great for the price.

Cons: The only reason I got this router was due to the $20 rebate. I got burned by an ASUS rebate once before, but since it was for a low amount, I took a chance and trusted them a second time. BIG MISTAKE. My rebate was denied due to not having an invoice attached, though their own records plainly show a copy of the invoice when I check the status online. Now I have to decide if $20 is worth the weeks long headache of sorting this out. Can't return the thing either since the bar code is cut out.

Other Thoughts: ASUS has really gone way way way downhill over the past few years.

5 out of 5 eggs Countering JJBrookshire 10/21/2013

This review is from: Targus ACP45US1-50-B Universal Docking Station w/ Digital Audio

Pros: All the ports, except the parallel port, act exactly like they should. I was even able to attach an old trackball to the serial port, and it worked fine in Windows XP and 7.

The really surprising addition, however, is the toslink s/pdif outlet. It lets me digitally connect my laptop to my home stereo, without buying a specialized USB sound card. It's something I've not seen on most other docks.

Cons: The parallel port acts strictly as a printer port in Windows XP and Windows 7. Any non-printer legacy devices that use a parallel port (old zip-disk drives, barcode scanners, etc.) likely won't work with this dock.

Other Thoughts: I don't write many reviews, unless something excels or is terrible, but I felt like I had to in this case. In response to JJBrookshire, it's incredibly irresponsible to rate a good product as one star just because you're not only too lazy to read the product's specifications, but also incapable of taking the 3 seconds to look at a product's pictures. Nowhere does it claim to do video, and there's nothing in the numerous detailed product images that resembles a video port. At least take the time to glance at a few bullet points before throwing money at a product that isn't designed to suit your needs.

PNY GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) DirectX 11 VCGGT4302XPB 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: QUIET FAN: This PNY GT430 is configured to allow the fan speed to dip all the way down to 35%, whereas most other GT430s won't go below 70%. This keeps things nice and quiet on my HTPC when I'm not pushing it too hard.

LOW POWER: Works fine with my 230w power supply. Also, it doesn't require any additional power connectors, so it's more compatible with older or cheaper power supplies.

Cons: DOES NOT INCLUDE LOW PROFILE BRACKET! Even though you see it in the photo gallery, this card does NOT come with a low profile bracket. Luckily, the card's ports are arranged in what I'm guessing is a standard configuration, so you may be able to use the bracket from another low profile card. The bracket from my old Asus ATI card fit just fine, as a temporary solution.

Other Thoughts: I've been emailing back and forth with NewEgg for nearly three weeks now, and still haven't made any headway on getting a replacement low profile bracket. If you plan on buying this card for a low-profile machine, get ready to buy additional mounting hardware.
