This review is from: Corel WinDVD Pro 11 - Product Key Card
Pros: Got this on a promo where after rebate it was the cost of shipping and got a free slot machines game with it.
Using the link provided in the review done Mark S, WinDVD installed on the first try without any problems. I typed the code exactly as shown on the WinDVD card with the dashes and everything.
I'm using this on a Dell Precision M6600 workstation laptop that I upgraded the DVD drive to a Blu-ray burner. The M6600 has a Core i7 quad and a nVidia Quadro 4000 video card and WinDVD runs beautifully on it.
Prior to this I was using the free Leawo Blu-ray Player but playback would stutter and it would not play Blu-ray menus (though DVD menus were fine). I wanted the whole Blu-ray experience but wasn't willing to pay the $60-$100 asking price!
So I jumped on this deal when it came up despite reports that installing the software could be problematic and that there was a lack of support (hey, if you need to, call the fricken CEO of the company- SOMEONE will provide support if you just follow the management chain upwards and refrain from being abusive, whining helps sometimes!).
I was rewarded with a text book perfect install and creamy smooth playback of my Blu-rays, and all for less than the cost of a cappuccino at the local coffee bar!
Cons: The only con I found was that when writing a review for Newegg they don't allow you to preview the review before posting it. Not so much a con with the software, but still linked to this purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TATUNG TRC-10DC White 10 Cups Rice Cooker
Other Thoughts: This is a review to counter the bad information in the "Edward L" review submitted on 1/21/2015 3:25:34 AM. I do not own this rice cooker yet, but am considering purchasing one while it's on sale. But I do have important information to help others decide if they want to buy this.
National is one of the brand names of Panasonic, who is based in Japan and is a quality manufacturer.
Tatung is a ENTIRELY separate company that's based out of the Taiwan and while they generally produce better products than a similar China based company would, they are NOT up to the standards of a Japanese based company like Panasonic!
Note that both Panasonic/National and Tatung have China based manufacturing plants, but their standards are higher than the local companies in that area and they both product good products as a result.
But the difference in quality is like a Ford Fiesta (Tatung) vs. a Lexus ES 350 (Panasonic/National)! Both good cars, but I would prefer the low end Lexus over the low end Ford any day!
"Edward L" is reviewing the National brand rice cooker because it looks like the one in the picture. So his review is actually NOT on the Tatung rice cooker, AS IT SHOULD BE, but on the National one which would cost 2 to 3 times more (similar to the Fiesta vs the ES 330).
It's important to the potential buyer to understand that if they purchase this rice cooker, the will get the lower quality Tatung cooker and not the one that'll last ten years from National!
Pros: Fast RAM, extended heatsinks, rebate
Cons: Had to set timings manually, but I was using a non-EPP motherboard so that would be expected.
Other Thoughts: I'm using 8GB with a Core2 Quad system and Vista 64-bit and after manually setting the timings and the voltage these run reliably (which is what I need as this is a video editing system I make a living on). I have run each of the OCCT tests for 8hrs or more and it passed without errors using the 4-4-4-12 timings and 2.1v.
I'm glad I bought them 3 months ago when they were cheaper, but they are still a great value when compared to the alternatives. BTW- just received my rebate check a couple of weeks ago, one of the faster and least problematic rebates I've submitted in a while - thank you Patriot!!
