ARRIS / Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs time warner San Diego 01/17/2015

This review is from: ARRIS / Motorola SurfBoard SB6141 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem

Pros: small, wall mountable, large grid for air cooling, long power cord.

Cons: blue lights are too bright AND they shine out the air cooling grid.

Other Thoughts: I have no idea how well this could work because I don't want to pay for time warner for a better plan. I already pay $60+ per month for standard Internet from time warner. I was getting 16/1 Mbps with my 12 year old SB5101. With this SB6141 I get the exact same speed. I hoped I would get the advertised 20Mbps speed but no, not with time warner San Diego. A few years ago I had the $12 per month speed boost, where you get about 24Mbps for the first 7 seconds of downloading, so I know they could give me better speeds if they wanted, but I do not download for 7 seconds. I upgraded because I want faster Internet if time warner ever increases standard speeds, like most other cable companies already have. I also like to have a backup and my trusty SB5101 is waiting for this new arris modem to die, but the SB5101 is not wall mountable (take apart and drill holes in the case).

NEC Display MultiSync EA224WMi-BK Black 22” Widescreen IPS Panel, LED Backlight LCD Monitor 6ms 250cd/m2, DisplayPort, USB hub, Height Adjust, Pivot, Tilt & Swivel, Speakers, 3 Year Warranty
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I do not own this monitor. I own other NEC monitors and they are awesome, so that's why I gave 5 eggs.

Cons: The response time specs do not match the NEC website, nor the NEC spec sheet (PDF) for this monitor.

Other Thoughts: This monitor, EA224WMi, is specified on the NEC web site as having a 14ms response time even though Newegg has it at 5ms. If anyone purchased this from Newegg can you please confirm that it is 5ms? I really want to buy it, but only if the response time is 5ms.

Mass Effect 2 PC Game

1 out of 5 eggs Bad controls 04/29/2012

This review is from: Mass Effect 2 PC Game

Pros: there is somewhat of a interesting plot and the graphics are okay except for the scenes where they talk (sync/lips don't move). The HUD is pretty cool and easy to use.

Cons: The controls are bad. multiple keys for a single action, same key for multiple actions (cover/open), stuck in third person view, awkward views when behind an object, cannot turn while running, bumping into objects moves the character, cannot jump (only "vault" over certain objects), cannot duck or crouch unless you are behind cover, if you change the bindings, the on screen hints show the default keys so you have no idea what to do. The list goes on. I'm glad I didn't pay much. always out of ammo too. If you still want to play the game just remember it is an RPG. It is not even close to a FPS. If you are looking for realistic action, this is not it. If there was no action and it were only drama and cool sci-fi stuff it would be better. If you put action into a game the controls should be usable.

Other Thoughts: The game physics are not bad, but they are not realistic at all. I suggest playing the game at a friends house before buying.
