XFX One R-Series Radeon HD 5450 A12 DirectX 11 ON-XFX1-DLX2 2GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 Low Profile Ready Deluxe Edition Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good price with rebate; nice hardware package.

Cons: Software sucks - crashed my system, required rollback to earlier state before would boot.

Other Thoughts: Bought this to replace an on-board ATI HD 3300 with only 512 of ram. Figured system is already using ATI, so an ATI add-on board should work fine. Wrong. Native Windows 8 software auto-loaded but left my desktop buggy and jerky with a performance rating of 2 (the on-board 3300 had come in at 4). Downloaded ATI's Catalyst drivers, which raised the performance all the way to 2.4 and then crashed my system on the second day, requiring a roll-back before I could even re-boot. Believe it, I will NOT be buying an ATI product for the next upgrade.

4 out of 5 eggs Once it finally got here.... 09/29/2010

This review is from: Patriot 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) Flash Card Model PSF16GSDHC6

Pros: Works out of the box, no issues with WinCE netbook I bought it for

Cons: Took forever to arrive--got a request from NewEgg to rate the product before I'd even received it!!! While this is obviously not the product's fault, it does tell me never to accept DHL shipping again, free or not.

Other Thoughts: Have had good luck with Patriot products in the past, expect that record to hold, though this is my first 16GB card.

Ectaco 5

5 out of 5 eggs Not perfect, but not bad at all 01/10/2010

This review is from: Ectaco 5" High Resolution e-Book Reader with Rechargeable Li-ion Battery WHITE (jetBook JB5W)

Pros: Price. Easy on the eyes screen, with none of the FLASH at page turns that other readers exhibit. Easy to add stuff to either internal memory or SD card, just drag & drop (both show up as removable drives in Windows when jetBook is plugged in). Plentiful storage. Really quick boot from sleep mode, though sleep does drain battery faster. Can upgrade firmware easily at home, without sending to factory, a definite plus (see cons).

Cons: Battery does seem to drain quickly, though I always leave it in sleep mode rather than off. Unable to read DRM books out of the box, though mfgr. says will have firmware update on their website ( early 2010. Still, even with drain on battery I've had no problem getting a week out of it with moderate use.

Other Thoughts: If you have need to use during extensive travel, either take a laptop or the charger along (it charges through mini-USB port off either source. Or, consider the jetBook Lite, which uses 4AA batteries but is otherwise nearly identical (but claims to already have the DRM firmware in place). One last thing: if you're prepping your own docs for the reader, format 'em 6"x7.5" with 16-point or higher type face and .25 margins, then export to PDF. Gives near perfect screen pages!
