This review is from: Ergotron 45-243-026 LX Wall Mount LCD Monitor Arm (Polished Aluminum)
Pros: My wife needed an articulating wall-mounted arm to suspend her monitor above her embroidery machine. This product is a great solution. She is very happy with the sturdy construction and flexible articulation. She can position her monitor wherever she needs it and can move it out of the way when it isn't needed.
Cons: Not really a con, but you need to plan you installation carefully. The arm articulates quite a bit but the location of the wall mounting hardware is still important. Make sure the arm will reach the location you need it to reach.
Also, you really want to mount this arm to something solid like a stud in the wall.
Other Thoughts: I work in a hospital and Ergoton brand is used extensively in that setting. This is a high quality product that holds up well in a rigorous commercial environment. It should hold up well for whichever application you may have at home or in the workplace.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Far Cry Jewel Case PC
Pros: This is a fun game to play. Nice graphics. I'm an old guy and it is simple enough for me to understand and play. Worked find on Win XP system. It was rewarding to complete. Will be fun to play again. Multiple approaches to solving many of the challenges in the game. Fun to drive vehicles.
Cons: Even at easiest levels, some sections of the game can be very difficult to successfully complete. Couldn't get it to work on my Win 7 system.
Other Thoughts: I don't play many 1st person shooters. I like Oblivion and Skyrim. Recently played Halo 1 for the first time and thought I would try this game based on good reviews. I liked it better than Halo 1 -- though both were fun. More variety in FarCry1. I am happy with my purchaseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Eleven Hundred Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Have enjoyed my Antec 900 series 2 case for 4 years. Also have used Antec 900s for two other builds for family members. Developed CPU heat issues so I recently added Corsair 80 water cooler. Snug fit for Corsair 80 and the never-ending quest for something new drew me to Antec 1100 case. I was also evaluating HAF full tower. Found a great Black Friday deal so I bought the 1100. I am glad I did. Very roomy inside. Corsair cooler fits fine. Plenty of fan mounts (only 2 fans included, though). Bottom mount PSU screen is a nice touch though I didn't mount my PSU to take advantage of it. Nice front bezel filter. Sturdy steel construction. Nice black paint inside and out. Twin fan side window isn't particularly attractive but it is functional. Feet are pretty tall -- I guess to accommodate the bottom PSU filter; there is a cutout in case to ventilate back side of motherboard at CPU which is nice. Plenty of room for power cables behind motherboard (I used modular power supply which, of course, also helped). I like the fact the case exterior has no unnecessary "trays" or "niches" to collect dust. These features look cool but I like to keep my computer clean and I get tired of detailing the exterior. For what it's worth, I like the blue color scheme. There's a nice case fan power connection at top rear of case. I like the thumbscrews that are used to attach video and other cards. Easy enough to connect case front panel leads to motherboard.
Cons: Corsair 80 cooler made it a little tricky to plug in the case fan power connection at the top rear of the case. I added aftermarket fan filters to intake fans mounted on clear side panel and fan that cools backside of motherboard at CPU (Antec 900 had a nice filter for the clear side panel intake fan). Again, it's a clean thing -- blame my Polish mother. Owner's manual is pretty vague and online version isn't much better. A little common sense goes a long way, though.
Other Thoughts: Should have bought more than one at the Black Friday price of $56. I am still a fan of the Antec 900 and I will re-purpose the case.READ FULL REVIEW
