Windows 8 upgrade compatibility

Are your Peripheral Devices compatible?
If your wise before upgrading to Windows 8 you will definitely need to look, and check to see if all of your peripheral devices are upgraded. There are a few ways to do so, the number one way would be to go to the Microsoft website or Windows Compatibility Center.

There you will find a laundry list of items that were tested by Microsoft and also some by Win 8 customer preview testers. Many of them shown have a very high rating for user feedback in dealing with compatibility and votes in favor of its good workings, and then there's low ratings as well. (Try downloading the Windows 8 Pro first, it will perform a compatibility assistant test, and let you know of a listing of software compatibility issues)

Popular Products listed as Compatible: 

Cyberlink PowerDVD version 10
LightScribe system software version 1.18
HP KQ246AA Deluxe Webcam

Note: You can also insert a product name into their search field area to detect on the network if they infact have located your particular peripheral devices compatibility.
