This review is from: APC BE750G Back-UPS 750 VA 10-outlet Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS)
Pros: I'm extremely satisified with this device! I Purchased it in 2010 to backup my Desktop PC and Cable Modem and it has been running continually since. I just recently added in my VOIP (Ooma) to the UPS. I did a test and I got about 20 minutes of backup time wtih my Desktop, Modem, and VOIP device. Not bad for 4 years of use!
Cons: The phone/FAX line surge protection doesn't seem to work with my Ooma Teleo VOIP device. I'm not sure if it is an issue wtih the UPS or the VOIP service. I'm not too concerned, unless my house takes a direct hit from lightning there is no way I can have a surge running through my internal phone lines. And if my house takes a direct strike of lightning I have bigger things to worry about!
Other Thoughts: Replacement batteries for this device are inexpensive and readily available. I was thinking after 4 years of use I would need to replace the battery but it looks like it is still going strong.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Toshiba 32C110U 32-Inch 720p LCD HDTV, Black
Pros: Arrived in original box, original packaging, original manual and even original remote. Free of any cosmetic defects.
Picture as as good as you're going to get for 720P, nice and bright display as well.
Cons: Sound. The sound on this thing is complete garbage, and the only audi output is digital, this problem is easily solved with a cheap receiver and cheap speakers. I'm not lying when I say I have alarm clocks with better audio than this thing.
Other Thoughts: You can't beat the quality at this price, although they said this is a refurb, the only way I could tell is that it has a sticker labeled "Refurbished" on the back. It feels, looks, and even smells like a brand new TV. I wallmounted this in my basement bar, it only is used during sporting events. Perfect for what I need.
Wallmounted w/ Rosewill RHTB-11011 Black 17" - 32" Wall Mount
This review is from: Battlefield 3 Limited Edition PC Game
Pros: The game looks great, but is very very GPU dependent. If you don't have a good graphics card, you should consider upgrading.
Optimized to run on quad-core CPUs. Love to see this.
The mult-player in this game is great fun. I really enjoy the balance between vehicles and infantry. It's not like previous versions of the game where you'd run/walk 5 minutes only to get blown up instantly and have to re-spawn.
Queue feature for full servers seems to work well.
The squad-based game play is great. It's nice to be able join a server and be put on the same team and same squad as someone on my friends list without having to worry about it.
Cons: The single-player is terrible. The AI is non-existant. You can go behind enemies and shoot all around them and they will not respond until you're in front of them. Whatever, no one buys it for campaign mode.
Simple features have been taken out, IE taking a screenshot in game, screenshot.render is still a command, they save to a folder, why can't I just bind a key?
In game VOIP has been taken out, but is included in XBOX version. Seriously?
Origin is junk. There's actually a statement in the EULA stating that they can/will give your information to third parties. Cool.
EA Locked this game down, they basically want to make as much money as possible off of it. They control everything for it, no mods, no map packs, etc. I guess Dice forgot where they came from... Desert Combat for BF1942. If you want a map-pack or an update, you have to pay $15 for it down to the road. I remember when developers would offer updates to include vehicles, weapons, and maps for... free!
Other Thoughts: I only gave it three eggs because I'm not a fan of where this game is going. There are thousands upon thousands of questions on EA's official website for BF3, and I have yet to see 1 official comment from EA. It's like they took our money and that's it. For them it is on to start making the new version of the game ready for next year, instead of updating the current and making it better for free. And they'll be sure to charge $60 for whatever "new" game they come out with next year.
It was completely opposite with BF2 and Desert Combat. I remember when the Devs were personally on the forums with players asking questions about how to make the game better, what features were missing, etc.
I'm glad I got it for half price!
