Hauppauge HD PVR2 High Definition Personal Video Recorder w/ H.264 Encoder, HDMI & component interface and One-touch Record button
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: A great external piece with all the adapters and programs needed to run your own DVR unit without taking up cardspace in a performance gaming PC.

Easy to manage and flexible if you have a multiple PC's and very universal with anything HDMI or just regular RCA cables.

Cons: Theres about a 3-5 second lag to capturing video, this is a slight annoyance due to the fact I did have intentions of playing my Xbox setup on my PC. This is probably due to the USB 2.0 tranfser which I should have taken into consideration.

1 more USB port and 1 more outlet you have to use since it has to be powered seperatly and is NOT USB POWERED. Oh well no big deal for me yet others may find this bad.

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this DVR due to its flexibility, the fact I can take it to anyones house and use it with my laptop makes this product a win.

I don't like the video transfer lag which makes it impossible to play anything for example your Xbox, PS3 on your laptop screen or PC screen.

ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 680 DirectX 11 ZT-60102-10P 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: more than 2 monitor support
HDMI w/ audio
handles all my games at highest settings
dual fan setup

Cons: Doesn't run the way I expected it to
Could have added a 5th heat pipe

Other Thoughts: I wanted this card for more of a long run approach

However the performance doesn't awe me as much as I thought it would, It runs Unigine at 40 to 50 fps on the average, but has a drop to 21 and a high of 150(on extreme setting with tessellation 16X). It has alot of eye candy but i would have expected more

Also I am running a board (Sabertooth 990FX) with a PCI X 16 2.0 rather than a 3.0, and I'm running an X4 black edition AMD 3.6 so I could be bottlenecking.

Finally the reason why I gave it three eggs instead of 5 is because my friend is running the same Sabertooth 990FX that I am. However he runs the Sapphire 7970 OCed which rated the lowest frame drop of 28 FPS. He is also running a dual core instead of a 4 and gskill sniper series memory

Acer S200HLAbd Black 20
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 1600 x 900 and 16:9 aspect
100 dollar range
DVI and VGA port

Cons: 20 inch, but not a big deal

Other Thoughts: I saw the dual set for only $200 so I ordered those for a set of spares. They look really nice, easy to setup and have them on dualview.

The biggest thing which I love about this monitor is that it came with ALL the needed cables, DVI and VGA cables. Most of the monitors that I have purchased jip you on cables that you need, but ACER apparently is better than that, so with 2 monitors I have 2 VGA cables and 2 DVI cables, which can run you another 10 to 20 bucks a shot, I would give it 6 eggs just for that reason
