5 out of 5 eggs Very Decent 04/10/2014

This review is from: TOSHIBA 6.9" Portable DVD Player, SD-P74S

Pros: Solid and sturdy. Arrived well packaged (double boxed) surrounded by bubble wrap. In perfect condition, and battery had a charge enough to test a DVD right out of the box before
I fully charged the unit. It has an SD card slot enabling me to view my own JPEG photos, or even a movie file from my PC.
The sound quality is great. It even has a remote control.
A unit like this likely cost hundreds some years ago!

Cons: None for the cost.

Other Thoughts: The screen resolution is relatively low at 480 X 234,
like most 7 inch portable units.
However, the picture quality is still good, and the color quality and sound volume and clarity are phenomenal. I bought this unit to play exercise and yoga DVD's during travel, and wanted a smaller unit. If I wanted one for watching tons of movies, I would seek out at least an 800 X 480 screen resolution. Which really means a 9 inch screen size. However, this is still a really nice player for a low price.

ZALMAN CNPS10X Performa 120mm Long life CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Can't Complain 02/16/2014

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X Performa 120mm Long life CPU Cooler

Pros: Cools very well. Yet is not giant and obtrusive. Mounting is decent. Although, the stock back plate I did not use, but rather, simply used the motherboard's native back plate.

Cons: I can see how, the back plate might become an issue for inexperienced or misinformed users. I was able to quickly figure out, that if I did not stay with the native back plate from my motherboard, and removed it to use the one with this cooler, the results might be less than optimal. Frankly I was scared to use the back plate that came with this cooler, as my motherboard's back plate was bigger, and well suited to support this cooler.

Other Thoughts: I can say, that this is one of my preferred brands for coolers. However, I find that mounting solutions for many aftermarket CPU coolers are something for the user to contemplate a bit.
For instance, I ended up mounting long springs to not only this one, but to my other CPU cooler which is heavier to support the cooler from the top of the case when a freight train rumbles my residence, or when I move the PC around.

Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade

5 out of 5 eggs Works Good 10/09/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade

Pros: Decent.

Cons: Has a "learning curve", which, initially is making one want Windows 7 back! But once over that, it's better than Windows 7 mostly.

Other Thoughts: If you're a "busybody", and your PC is mostly secondary or an afterthought, and you don't have patience to learn this new operating system, then stay with Windows 7 until you have a few days to figure this one out. Otherwise, you may just remove it, and "swim back to the shoreline" of WINDOWS 7.
However, the other side, if you can get there, is much nicer!!!
