This review is from: Nokia 2600 Classic Black Unlocked Cell Phone AT&T Package 1.8"
Pros: + Very minimal design, does exactly what you need from a phone.
+ Has a camera!
+ When you hold down a key, it continues to make the delightful tone.
+ Sound quality is quite alright, I can hear clearly as well as speak clearly through it.
+ Apparently comes pre-installed with Ms. Pacman.
+ Has multimedia support.
+ Does indeed support instant messaging and mobile internet, even has an app for wikipedia if you find that a pro (cont. on first point of cons)...
Cons: - ...however the device is simply stuffed with bloatware (such as that Wikipedia app, why not just use the mobile internet if you are that bent on using Wikipedia? Getting to the app takes longer than opening the web, which is literally just a push of a button) that you can not even really use due to how much lag the phone has. Even the loading time to go from just the phone wallpaper to the menu is abysmally long.
- Changing the keypad tone does not seem to do much of anything. Even when I supposedly turn the volume off entirely.
- I feel as though I can break the phone in half just by accidentally squeezing it too hard. Which really is a shame considering "Nokia" is synonymous with "Indestructible" on the internet. To be entirely honest, the instruction manual feels sturdier than the phone.
Other Thoughts: I ordered a Nokia 100 on the 22nd of June, it is still registered as "Packaging" in my invoice, and this phone simply showed up out of nowhere. Considering the price difference between the two, I believe I will keep this phone and give it to my mother, she is a fan of simplistic phones that perform the task of calling someone in a simple manner; and I believe she had a 2600 a while ago.
Also just as a note, Ms. Pacman is -not- pre-installed, but instead a placeholder is that still is there to take of part of your phones memory.
The camera is also 128x160.
. . . And there is no Snake.
Three stars because I find the phone to be quite adequate, however leaves much to be desired.
This review is from: Tt eSPORTS BLACK ELEMENT Laser Gaming Mouse MO-BLE001DT
Pros: 100x100 to 6500x6500 DPI. Can even make the X and Y axis values different.
Four saveable DPI settings over five mouse profiles; total of twenty DPI profiles.
Easy to understand Software.
Very attractive design.
Lights! Who doesn't like lights? You get Red, Blue, an Icy Blue, Magenta, and Green. Also, you can turn off the lights in specific areas or just the entire thing if you don't like lights.
Rubber, very nice grip.
Comfortable, curvy, mouse 1 and 2 buttons. They sort of bowl around your fingers when claw gripping.
Comfortable scroll wheel, won't get that "Greasy" feel.
Can program the mouse buttons to do other things.
Can also adjust scroll, cursor, and double click speeds.
Cons: The Mouse 5 button (left side, right at the very front) is a strain to reach unless you grip -way- at the front of the mouse. I have to physically move my hand up to hit it, and I even claw grip.
Placement of the DPI buttons are awkward. Unlike Mouse 5, you have to move the hand down to press. Can't even make other buttons change the DPI.
The profile button is on the bottom of the mouse. (I rarely change the profile though.)
The right macro button is incredibly awkward to press. (I never use macros, however.)
Had a small problem with my existing mouse driver and this mouse's driver conflicting, causing the mouse to double click, getting to a point that two out of three clicks was a double click. (Fixed by just uninstalling the old driver.)
Minor; For some reason, you can not mix-and-match the colors of the lights.
Other Thoughts: I love this mouse, it is a great replacement for my old one. Though, I do not know how; but my cat managed to steal -all- of the weights. It took a while to get used to how light the mouse actually is; but I find it is more comfortable to use now.
Also, if you rarely turn your PC off; it's nice to be able to disable the lights on it's own profile.
>>>Despite the flaws, this is a very solid mouse that I will recommend to anyone who is looking to buy for general gaming use.
<!> HOWEVER. This is a very rudimentary RTS/MMO mouse due to how awkward M4, M5, and the Macro keys are! <!>
This review is from: ENCORE ENM232-8VIA 7.1 Channels 24-bit 96KHz PCI Interface Surround Sound Card
Pros: - Sounds bloody amazing
- Works like a dream (WHEN YOU GET IT TO WORK)
- A real quick fix
Cons: Spent five hours trying to install the HORRIBLE drivers. I tried using the disc, tried using the drivers from the website. Nothing worked! It took pure will and a little magic to get this to work.
I got the CD to work by plopping it in, running it, getting it to fail, taking it out, putting it back in, running it again, getting it to WORK, restarting the computer, ran it again, got it to "Work" again, another restart, another run of the installer, PC freezing then crashing, then restarting once more.
Other Thoughts: Well, after I got the card to work, I almost cried. Also had a nice little blasting of David Glen Eisley. "Sweet, sweet, sweet victory (yeah)" was had today.READ FULL REVIEW
