This review is from: Microsoft Xbox 360 4 GB Black
Pros: got this as a free add on for a computer purchase. its not the high end extra memory version, nor is it the extra come with games or kinect version, which I would have prefered, but it was FREE, because I bought something else mind you, but hey, who can complain against free add ons? So far no complaints, it works fine, no red circles of death.
Cons: wish it had been the come with kinect version, or the extra memory version. or even if it had come with a game, or an extra controller. but I suppose any free extras are too much to ask for in this economy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: so far the computer works better then my old computer, which has two 9800 eva gfroce vid cards in it. Not really any space in it enough for extra video card upgrades later, but it did come with all the extra sli connections.
Cons: it came with a keyboard and mouse that are pretty low quality, I really dont know why they bother to include these items. I wouldnt use them unless I had no other choice. Its a gaming computer, and I have no idea why anyone would ever use low tech key board or mouse.
Rhe motherboard is crowded, I dont see any way to for there to be room to actually install any extra video cards, you would really be working to try to fit anything else on the motherboard, however it did come with all the sli cables as if daring you to try.
The computer comes with a dvd player, which is almost insulting. I bought my blu ray/burner for my last desktop over a year ago, and it wasnt entirely exspensive at that, and this computer only comes with a dvd player?! O.o
However there is ample room for additions of hard drives and blu ray drive if you choose to install your own.
The computer did restart on its own a couple times, though I have no idea why, the first couple days I had turned it on. Once during the time I was using it, another on its own when left on by itself. I went thru the windows options and made sure to disable any sleeping options.
The power cord it came with was horrible. It wouldnt stay connected to the power supply, any accidental nudges or tap to it and it would come unplugged. Now Im not saying I like to do physical combat with my computer case, but on occasion I do try and move it to get behind it at other cords or to plug things into the back of it, and that would cause the connection of power to fluctuate and discconect the computer, which was very annoying, specially when your trying to connect your headset instead of your speakers, which Im sure most gamers have had to do at some point. Easily remedied by using an alternative power supply cord, which I have a ton of, but odd that the power supply came with such an ill fitted cord.
I bought guilds wars 2 and attempted to run it at full settings. It did run, but I wouldnt necessarially call it smoothly, but run the game it did.
Its not the top gaming computer by far, but it will do most present games Im guessing at an above average state, course, give it another 6 months - year, and Im sure I'll have to upgrade to something else to keep up with games coming out.
Other Thoughts: not a bad buy, it could have done with some bettter extras, aka gaming mouse or gaming keyboard, if you're going to bother to include a mouse or keyboard make it count. nice razor woulda been nice. blu ray drive woulda been nice as well. bigger more roomie motherboard for additional upgrades later on woulda been the best plus, but eh what can you do. It is what it is, and it wasn't bad, but it's not great. got the deal with the xbox 360, and discount for back to school, so cant complain too much.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Citizen Skyhawk A-T Stainless Steel Chronograph Atomic Mens Watch JY0000-53E
Pros: shipped quickly, the box itself once opened that the watch was in had wear and tear, I dont know how long it was sitting on a shelf somewhere, but you certiainly could tell. Wish I could give you any comments on the watch itself, but it's a x-mas present so you would have to ask my step dad after he gets it after x-mas. Inside of the watch looked nice and he band on it seemed large enough for my step dads wrist, and he is a big guy, so fit shouldnt be a problem. I only hope the actual watch works as well once he actually gets it on x-mas.
Cons: watch display box had wear and tear on it, made the product seem like it was old. I know it was a discounted item, but the actual display box was in such a used condition, it makes the watch seem like I bought it second hand, and its supposed to be a first hand high quality watch for my step dad. Hopefully the watch is in good condition and he will over look the box and not think I bought it second hand. O.o
Other Thoughts: couldnt give you more then a comment then what I did because I will have no idea on the actual function of the watch untill my step dad uses it after x-mas, till then it will sit wrapped in my closet waiting to be opened on x-mas.READ FULL REVIEW
