Pros: Added a 3rd monitor to my setup. My current desktop at work is a small form factor and won't fit one of our standard quad display cards (standard PCI-size, not low-profile). I popped this baby on and running it at 1680x1050 on a 22" LCD. I don't watch videos on it, but I did test a full-screen youtube video and it came through just fine.
Cons: A few times a month all displays will go out for a couple of seconds and then come back on. It doesn't really bother me because it's infrequent and very brief.
Other Thoughts: Yes, I consider myself a 5 for technical knowledge as I'm an IT tech who has done desktop support, help desk, and now specialize in doing product evals at work as well as managing our virtual environment.
Please take a look at the CON. I would have given 4.5 stars if that was an option, but I don't think it was enough to drop it a full star, so I left it as a 5.
One thing I thought may be a problem: choppiness
THIS IS NOT THE CASE!! It's not choppy at all, to my surprise. I have this thing tucked in the back of the desk and heat doesn't seem to be an issue.
This review is from: Microsoft XBOX 360 Gears of War 3 Limited Edition Console 320 GB Hard Drive
Pros: Beautiful, sleek, 320GB, 2 controllers, newer console design (slim), comes with the BEST xbox 360 game of all time, wifi, and the list goes on.
Other Thoughts: I've been playing Gears of War since the date the first one came out. Played the second one since the day it came out, and then the third one since the day it came out.
This is my FAVORITE video game at present. Yes, I like it much better than Call of Duty games (although I like those too).
This console is so hot... my friends are jealous. I'm 30 years old and still I thought it was a must have. The game alone goes for $50, the controllers are probably $50-60/each (when compared to a normal wireless for say $40/each - you get the added design), the 320gig drive is over $100, and the console without the extras is $200.
Add it all up and the price makes sense, except I got it on sale at newegg for much less. :)
I LOVE how I hear the Gears of War sounds when I push the power/eject buttons. :)
Come join me on Gears!!
This review is from: BELKIN BZ103050QTVL 5 Outlets 918 Joules Mini Surge Protector with USB Charger
Pros: Affordable when it's on sale and was useful when I first had it. No wires or a mess on the floor as it stick onto the wall outlet.
Cons: Awkward, and unbalanced. Maybe if someone had industrial strength outlets would this be awesome, but if I have it plugged in and stretching horizontally towards the left, then the left-most outlet is tough to use. When I plug something into it, I have to hold the whole Belkin surge protector tightly into the outlet so it doesn't pop out or break the wall outlet.
Also, I used to use the USB ports when charging phone when I was sitting at my computer desk for hours on end, but now I NEVER use it. 500mA is way too weak with today's standards and smartphones. Useless.
Other Thoughts: Buy this if you don't care about the slow charge. Also make sure you're aware that when you plug something into the farthest outlet from the socket plug, you will likely need to hold the whole thing down.READ FULL REVIEW
