Pros: It simply works. Took the modules right out of the package, put them in my notebook, and it worked. They seem to be extremely stable (not a BSOD in sight) and very fast.

Cons: Can't think of one.

VisionTek 900193 TV Wonder 650 Combo USB for PC TV Tuner

4 out of 5 eggs Works with Media Center 05/03/2008

This review is from: VisionTek 900193 TV Wonder 650 Combo USB for PC TV Tuner "Black Box" w/Remote

Pros: The box is very small and compact so it doesn't take up much room at all. I used my box solely with Vista and its Media Center program. Seting it up through Media Center was a breeze...a few simple clicks and I was ready to start recording shows onto the computer. I was scepticle about the USB interface since recording video requires a lot of data transmission, but it holds up very nicely with very smooth live TV. The included remote sensor makes it very nice to control through the program and even shut down or put the computer in standby.

Cons: There are a few cons of this box. The first I will mention is with live TV and channel switching. When you change the channel it does take a few seconds to change, so there is some lag. Also, as I had previously mentioned I used this PVR with Media Center instead of the included ATI software and so the remote included does not have full functionality with Media Center. I wish it had a Media Center button. Otherwise, it has enough functions to still scroll through the program, go back to the main menu, and do any other typical things in Media Center.

Other Thoughts: This was my first PVR purchase for the desktop and I am very pleased with it. Although there are a few things I wish that this device did as far as working better with Media center, it still works great and I can still use it efficiently. Overall it is a good product, and works very well. I have been a huge supporter of ATi in the past and this once again is another great product from them.

SYBA High Speed USB 2.0 4x Ports Hub via PCI slot Model SD-PCI-UHUB4

5 out of 5 eggs Great little device 05/03/2008

This review is from: SYBA High Speed USB 2.0 4x Ports Hub via PCI slot Model SD-PCI-UHUB4

Pros: This card is great for what it is designed for. Not only can you not beat the price, but it simply works. Plug in a USB source (either an open USB slot on the motherboard or a motherboard 4 pin plug) give it some power, and've got 4 more USB ports that all work and will also power USB devices like a Western Digital Passport.

Cons: The only con I can squeeze out of this card is you MUST plug in power for it to work. I had assumed that it would only require power if you wanted to plug in devices that require it, but I was wrong. You do have to plug in a berg connector (floppy power) for it to work.

Other Thoughts: If you simply want some more USB ports and you don't have an open PCI slot on the motherboard, this is an excellent buy.
