Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V Black 4G LTE Quad-Core 2.5GHz 16GB Verizon + Unlocked GSM Android Phone
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best phone (portable computer) I ever owned 01/15/2015

This review is from: Samsung Galaxy S5 G900V Black 4G LTE Quad-Core 2.5GHz 16GB Verizon + Unlocked GSM Android Phone

Pros: 4 Cores at 2.46ghz
Gaming is a breeze. Loading times, graphics, smooth gameplay, its all win win here.
App support for every app ever made for android! (in play store).
Advanced charging and long battery life means I only have to charge once ever day and a half with regular usage (about a day with heavy gaming).
Still taking newest versions of Android.

Cons: Lots of verizon bloatware. (doesn't really effect speed though).
Speaker sucks with the only 2 cases that are designed for it (unless you want to get a cheap dollar store one and drop your phone).
16GB isn't a lot, but there is an SD slot inside the phone and I imagine it can go all the way to 128gb (only had a 16 on hand).

Other Thoughts: I love this phone. Came from a rezound and went from 3 minute game loading screens and activity to 3 second.
Also, the phone piece itself is not buggy.
First phone I owned since the flips that didn't hand manufacture flaws (had an env3 before and had the famous battery issue).
Hats off to Samsung!

Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Best office version since 2003 01/15/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: Sleek and stylish design.
Typing in Word and Outlook is smooth and gives a feel that is easy on the eyes.
GUI is bright and matches most monitors.
Haven't used powerpoint much since 2003, but 2013 blows it out of the water with all of the features and capabilities that were added.

Cons: Outlook integration with exchange server is very buggy.
Tabs make things very difficult to find. Often just end up putting things in the quick launch bar and overcrowding it making it look like 2003.
As many have mentioned, the price is unbearable. For offices, budgets become tight and for home use there are so many other FREE options.
Have also had some minor crashes in word and excel but nothing life-threatening (always ctrl-s when typing a large document).

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very satisfied with 2013. It improved on a lot of things that were wrong with 2003 and 2007 (that were also addressed in 2010) and adds a nice touch in the graphical interface category.
Although I complained about Exchange server integration, at least there is one and it plays with AD.
For offices, there are really no other products that offer Microsoft's support and that is what most upper management look for (aside from cheap) in a product.
As for home use, Libre is the way to go.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs One of Microsoft's Best 01/15/2015

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit

Pros: Resource Monitor made it easier for IT to monitor system attributes.
Clean Aero interface that wasn't an eyesore to look at.
Shake and snap makes it very easy to turn any widescreen monitor into a dual screen.
Supported with 6 years worth of updates and still counting.
Reformatting is much easier with windows updates finding drivers. Barely had to download them myself, although it is recommended to get them from manufacturer's website.
Layered IE8 makes it easy to alternate between sites when minimized.
Still has Start button (teaser comment)
Windows media center provided a nice free EPG before Hulu and Netflix became standards and cut-the-cable became a thing.
Easy to use for layer 8 users.

Cons: Aero interface is bulky and requires a lot of system resources.
Doesn't run too good on OEM hardware pre-2007/2008.
Much better virus track record than XP, but still get the occasional fake Windows messages and hard drive hijacks. Granted any OS with high market share will be a target, but still a nuisance when your uncle calls you at 3AM because "windows wants $400 dollars to "repair" my hard disk"".

Other Thoughts: Since day one, I knew that I had to replace my XP installs with Windows 7 and gradually did. I am still a Linux fanboy, but there are still a ton of things that Windows can do over linux and Mac. If I had to choose (until 10 comes out later this year), Windows 7 would be my OS of choice on any home.
