Pros: there are a couple of cons opinions for a little slow .. what do you want for a $50 cpu and a whopping 25 whats.. I think there is plenty of cpu power here .. I have used it for a media pc. first thing is this thing is silent for me. I can not hear it in the living room during the quietenst parts of the movie .. I have a Haupagge 2250 dual tuner and have enough cpu power to record 2 video streams while watching a third off the disk and never drop a frame .
Next power efficiency is amazing, I am not sure how it does it , but it can record while it is powered off.. the power light doesn't turn on and it just does it .. I am not sure how .. I am impressed ...
plus the motherboards for this cpu is incredibly cheap
Cons: most of these mother boards have only 2 sata connectors , one for ssd one for massive storage for the video recorder .. and there is nothing left over for a dvd player.. so I used a external storage case with and old dvd pata... which in the end reduces power since I only need the dvd every once in a great while ..
Other Thoughts: if you are like me and living with out cable , this and Windows media center is great for recording your favorite network shows to watch later
this is awesome set up ..
This review is from: Hauppauge 23040 TV Tuner Card
Pros: I was buying this for a media PC, as a second tuner ..So I didn't care if I got the remote , I just needed the board.. anyhow to my surprise I got the whole retail package .. from the description I thought I would just get the board .. it is not a windows media player remote .so that could be important to some people.. but it included cables and everything
Cons: not a windows media remote..but it does the job
Other Thoughts: IIRC the this had to pay for shipping, but was less that the one with free shipping ..so some times it is cheaper to pay for shippingREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: VM Audio SRHP9 Stereo MP3/iPhone iPod Over Head On Ear DJ Headphones
Pros: cheap ... fits my giant head ( actually could fit a bigger head)
sound could be worse
Cons: there is no indication on the box or any where that there is a volume control.. I assumed that the were a piece of low quality ..until I happened to see something that looked like a scratch.. looking close I saw it was a volume control..
and tweaked it up
Other Thoughts: they should make the volume control more obvious and it is something that should be mentioned in the boxREAD FULL REVIEW
