Review: Three 17-in. laptops provide big screens for low prices


Notebook too cramped? Try one of these (surprisingly affordable) big boys from Acer, Dell and Toshiba.

Best price, light travel weight, eSATA connector, multimedia controls with volume thumbwheel

Touchpad is hard to see, no Bluetooth or ExpressCard slot, keyboard flexes too much, screen wobbles

If this review were concerned with only one criterion, it would be easy to pick a winner. For overall features, the Aspire is head and shoulders above the rest, but it's heavy. Based on price, the Satellite has no equal, but its performance is hardly...

9500 EVGA video card


Was looking for a low end PCI Express card when I ordered this card. The card installed with no problems the included software installed without a hitch. I was surprised to find this card could handle all my videos and games without slowing down and...

I can't find any cons for this card,it dose more then what I expected

Absoultely Perfect!


2 dual linked dvi's with no questions asked you can't go wrong.

2 Monitors? No problem ; This video card is great for 2 dual linked monitors and it's pretty hard to find a video card for this price that offers the opportunity to give you 2 dual linked dvi's ; Pretty good performance for the price I wasn't expecting...

Works exactly as advertised


There are very few 2 DVI port cards that aren't super bulky - if you are looking for one, and you don't necessarily need to overclock or want ridiculous gaming performance, just a 2 DVI monitor set, I'd recommend this one.

2 DVI ports is exactly what I was looking for - both work perfectly. No need to even install drivers on Windows 7 Professional - most recent ones come pre-loaded. Performance is pretty good so far

None that I've seen so far. Solid card, large amount of on-board RAM

Works Great.


My son has used this card for about a year and a half. He constantly games with it in Linux and windows. (WOW, COD, Team Fortress etc..) He never complains and from what I've seen, all the games he plays play smoothly. No problems at all.

Works great. Linux compatible. Very decent gaming


Consumer review by:

great card


This card runs a lot cooler then my other EVGA 7200 GS which did not have a fan

This card is great. Works as it should. No problems installing it

Wish it had a VGA port instead of two DVI ports

Not too shabby


I docked an egg because of the driver issue, and that wasnt really a huge problem.I bought this card to replace my Geforce 7500 GT, which was DOA within a week of installing it. I had a friend of mine actually order, and install the card. When I took...

Decent card for the money, quiet...most of the time, Runs well in stressful conditions

Fan can be a bit noisy at times. Sounds like its grinding a bit on startup. Card acted odd when drivers were originally installed. (See Other thoughts)

Works great for dual-DVI setup with RAM to spare

fair gaming perf

EZiest VidCard Install Ever!


Was worried about having to uninstall the built in mother board Nvidia video. No problems--ASUS motherboard checks for a PCI video card before initializing the built in graphics.

Easiest install ever--just plugged it in and installed the drivers from the CD

Still waiting on my rebate
