I bought many toys for my computers over the years and I don't include the computers (9) and laptops (3).
I made a list of my favorite ones.
1- ADVC 100 by Canopus
I bought it to digitize my VHS movies to DVD.
The version I have was purchased on the Internet and it has a button to disable the Macrovison (crap used to prevent making copies). I even used to record movies or shows from Hulu by connecting my two computers and recording on the 2nd one.
That was a great device. I still have the original box and accessories.
2- Fusion HDTV 3 QAM gold from Dvico
I used it to capture HD videos from cable over the air.
I had a great time with this toy!
3- ION Turntable
I bought it to digitize my vinyls via USB on my computer.
It comes with a free editing software to help remove scratches, pops, clicks and background noise.
4 - HD PVR by Hauppauge
Even better than my ADVC 100! It can record HDTV straight to my computer and the quality is amazing! My favorite toy so far!
5 - WD Live TV Hub
I can watch TV online, play games, watch my own videos, play my music, look at pictures, etc.
Here's my next gadget I want to buy!
Okay that's it! What's your favorite computer toy?
I got a Polaroid Cube + for my birthday and I must say I'm disappointed with the quality of the video, it's over compressed and the motion stabilization is crap but when you take a picture, it's an other story, the quality is better than the original Cube.
Just got one of these bad boys. I can run almost anything at max resolution and its still semi-portable. Battery will die within 45 min if it is left unplugged. Trying to find some new monitors for my @home setup.
Cool, my Alienware rig is getting old now but I still love it.
@SSTG really? I was thinking of grabbing my girlfriend a Polaroid Cube + for her birthday, but if you say the quality isn't very good then I might have to think of another idea.
Check this out, I wish I had known this before, I would have bought this one instead!
The last thing I bought for my computer is a wireless keyboard and mouse and new music speakers
