Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001  (Jan 2012)

Thanks to 2TB finally enough size!

DVD+-RW: BenQ DW1640  (Aug 2005)

The fastest and probably even one of the best (in terms of error correction) DVD burners on the market

Soundcard: Soundblaster PCI 128  (Feb 1999)

Works flawlessly. Good sound and no problems at all.

Loudspeaker: WaveMaster 300  (Jan 1999)

Rather simple 2-way speakers with "DSP processor". Reliable.

Kopfhörer: Sennheiser HD 201  (April 2014)

Nice sound without distortions from outside

TV card: Hauppauge WinTV PVR-150  (Apr 2008)

Keyboard: Logitech Internet Navigator Special Edition  (Mai 2004)

A fully featured keyboard. I like the volume wheel and the scroll wheel on the left. If its connected via USB, everything works out-of-the-box when using Kernel 2.6 and Gnome 2.6

Mouse: Logitech M500  (Dec 2012)


Working hour meter: MotoMeter  (Jul 2002)

A truely cool device of the good old days. A quartz clock counts the minutes (analog) and the hours (digital). The only thing, I still have to do, is to mount this meter in the case. It would look deadly cool.
The device on the photo does not exacly look like mine (mine is from MotoMeter, has got its numbers above the hand and has got a chrome ring), but you can get an idea, how it looks like.

Operating System: Ubuntu 14.04  (April 2014)
