This review is from: SONY XL-5200 Replacement Lamp with Housing
Pros: It came well packaged, and is a Philips bulb. It physically looks better than the original bulb that came with the Sony TV. The picture is the same, or i just cannot notice a difference. Easy to install. I got the blinking light of death after i came back from a weekend trip, so i ordered a replacement after i confirmed the broken filament.
Cons: I hope I get better lamp life out of this one. This is my third bulb for this TV which i bought in 2007, and i do not use this TV very much. I bought the previous one from Sony directly.
Other Thoughts: I feared buying this item after reading the reviews people post. If you feel like you are getting ripped off, I think you will feel more ripped off buying the bulb for over $200 from Sony, to find the same bulb here for around $70. The packaging was very professional and protective, and made me feel like it was a solid product.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks good, and gives me very few issues. Fires up very fast, and the layout is pretty nice. I bought this to replace an Asus Z77 MB that i had issues with. I am not sure which one i like better at this point. I think i like the Asus Bios better (see negative comment).
Cons: I cannot get the fan setting to stay in the Control Center. I setting the smart fan controls and then everything is great, but i shut down and they go back to the bio set speeds. Now I may not be a computer genius but should i have to be to get this to work? I say it is worth an egg. Also, from a design perspective the yellow color and text on the heatsinks is unattractive on an otherwise very well thought out board. I may go back to Asus next time, but I find this board does not have all the extra hype that i don't care about.
Other Thoughts: The USB3.0 jack does not align well in the Corsair 550D. The case has a bulge that pushes the cable head outward. I have not had issues with it though, just looks like it is coming out. That is just the case's problem. I am trading up to a Corsair Air 540.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Corsair Vengeance MM400 CH-9000016-WW Hard Plastic Gaming Mouse Mat
Pros: Great grip, and looks great. No crazy gamer graphics all over it. Feels good on the wrist at the edges. Its pretty rigid. The size is good for what i need.
Other Thoughts: It felt funny at first due to the slippy plastic top, with my Logitech G-Series mouse, but i now find it better than any pad i have had. I hate my work pad now. I may buy another for work.READ FULL REVIEW
