    Well in the end I went with the Altec Lansing ATP3 speakers. I spent a lunchtime comparing them with the other "finalist" which were the Cambridge Soundworks speakers. The Altecs won out because to...

    Yep, mine got the "most horrible hardware pruchase of the year" award for 2000. Given the total lack of support for it as well I reckon I was within my rights to return it for a refund. I didn't and...

    Hotwheelsjr,

    You should be very happy with the AW744 Pro. It's given me no trouble at all, and I've only find one very minor and inconsequential issue with it in Combat Flight Simulator 2 (rain...
