This review is from: cirago BTA-3210 Micro Bluetooth Dongle USB 2.0 support Bluetooth 2.1
Pros: Does what I need it to do, which is connect my headset to my computer wirelessly and allow me to talk. It's also worth noting that I am using the Turtle Beach EarForce PX5 headset with this device.
Cons: For my usage? None. However, I noticed after getting like 15 feet away (walking to my kitchen) it can sometimes lose connection. As far as how well it carries my voice from that distance is unknown. Often times when I turn my headset on and I'm already in a game, I have to go to my bluetooth settings and manually disconnect and reconnect the device from there in order for it to allow me to talk and transmit my voice. This gets a bit old after a while. I've also noticed that when I use a software called XSplit, which is for live streaming, in conjunction with this and my headset disconnects or connects, it'll end my stream or somehow mess with XSplit. Not sure if this is XSplit's fault or the bluetooth software, but it was worth noting.
Other Thoughts: Do I regret buying it? No. Is it the best device out there? Maybe not. Does it do what I need it to do? Yes.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This thing is beautiful. Pictures of it don't do it justice. Colors are an obvious improvement from my previous monitor with them being more vibrant and distinguished. Visuals are more sharp. Far more screen real estate since the resolution is bumped up to 1920x1200 and it's a widescreen with a 16:10 aspect ratio. The fact this is labeled as having an 8ms response time means it deters a lot of gamers, but as a gamer myself who plays a lot of FPS games for over 60 hours a week it isn't at all noticeable or bothersome. Whites are white and bright, blacks are dark as it can get. I am utterly pleased at the expense of the currently discounted price of $320.
Cons: The price? Took a bit of effort to find a nice wallpaper? Lack of space to put the monitor? I don't know.
Other Thoughts: Went from an old budget monitor that I've had since 2002 to this. Also from VGA to DVI-D. This thing is adjustable, has 4 USB ports, you can use it with DVI, VGA, or Display Port, it has an in-depth menu, and automatically goes into a power saving mode if nothing at all is happening on screen or if the computer is off. Power saving mode is basically it turning itself off, but the power button turns a dim orange.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Crucial M4 CT128M4SSD2 2.5" 128GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Runs blazing fast, it's unreal. Loads Windows 7 Home Premium in under 15 seconds and any program in under one or two snaps of your fingers. (2 seconds at most maybe?)
Cons: $1 per GB; expected as it's new technology though.
