Re: SilverStone HDDBOOST Review

What I meant was it appears that when you first hookup a drive with an OS already installed it copies over that OS to the SSD in the HDDBOOST. Then if you take out the original HDD and put a freshly formatted HDD back in, does it have a feature to copy all the files from the HDDBOOST's SSD back to y...

Re: SilverStone HDDBOOST Review

This could really come in handy for those that use WinXP. I know that every time I have to do a reinstall (even from the official msdn XPProSP3 cd) I have hours of updating to do to bring it up to todays date. It would be nice to not have to do a reinstall. Plus with all the stuff I like to load at ...

Re: Wireless adapter advice

Which one would be the best for a clueless user to get the most benefit from (ie: best interface, easiest settings to see performance gains, etc.)? I currently have one box wired to the router (my videdit box), two WinXP kids boxes for surfing and games (wireless with the WUSB54G adapters), one surf...

Re: Wireless adapter advice

About the only negatives I can think of is that these are in my living room so I will have a router in sight and have to locate another power plug in. Right now with all the paraphernalia already hooked up (2 systems, computer speakers, LCD TV, Cable box, surround sound deck, powered sub for HTPC, e...

Re: Wireless adapter advice

Thanks for explaining. Actually if that were possible to use client mode for 2 separate computers in the same router it would be cheaper to get a used router that supports it. I'm assuming, though, that the router would make the two computers share the same LAN address which could be problematic. Th...

This works especially well if you plugging several desktops into the client router.

I'm not sure I know what you mean. Please elaborate...

Thanks for the link to the search. I was hoping to see a specific recommendation so could you possibly narrow that down to the one you personally use? Thanks

Re: Wireless adapter advice

USB would be nice, but I have available PCI slots. My HTPC currently has Win7-64 on it, and this box is currently XP but as soon as I find an adapter that will work with Win7 it will also get Win7-64. The other two boxes are just my kids boxes and they do just fine with WinXP and their WUSB54G adapt...

Wireless adapter advice

I need to add a couple of wireless adapters to my network. I need something that will work with Win7. Currently I only have a Linksys WRT54GL and the adapters I currently have only do drivers up to WinXP so I would like to find something that is compatible with my Linksys Router and Win 7. Obviously...

Re: Western Digital TV Live Plus Media Player with Netflix

So, now that you have reviews for two HD media boxes which one would you prefer if you had to buy one? Even though this one has the streaming Netflix, the patriot one is still looking pretty good especially for the price...
