This review is from: AVG Anti-Virus 2014 - 1 PC - Product Key Card
Pros: Came bundled with Win7 and it went on one of my kids rigs. Scans fast but you need to tweak the options to make it go deep in the scanning process.
No complaints. I always have a secondary scanner installed and thus far it's not picked up any threats that AVG might have missed.
Cons: It does kind of shamelessly self promote in that there are other aspects of it you can take for a test drive if you like. I've read a few complaints about it being a big deal and it's right up in your face while doing so. Can't say this has been the case on the computer it's installed on.
Other Thoughts: It was bundled with the OS I bought, was free and came with a 12 month subscription. Keeps one of my kids rigs safe from nefarious files hidden in the trillions of Minecraft mods she downloads daily.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit
Pros: Fantastic OS. Easy to use and enjoy. A worthy grandchild to XP.
Plenty of features to tweak if you are into that and if you're not, you can more or less fire and forget and let the myriad options take care of themselves.
Plays nice with games and programs, even my old ones going as far back as Neverwinter Nights 1.
Cons: It's not bacon.
Other Thoughts: After using the legendary WinXP for ages I decided to upgrade to a 64bit build for the new rig. Ordered Vista and discovered the nightmare that steaming pile was.
Moving on from that as soon as Win7 was released thanks to the free upgrade deal I found the true successor to XP. I've got Win7 from this version to Ultimate on four home computers. Everyone is happy and it's intuitive enough that my children figured it out fast.
Great OS, even better than my bias towards XP. Gonna run it till the wheels fall off and hopefully completely miss Win8.
This review is from: Amped Wireless SB1000 High Power 1000mW Wi-Fi Signal Booster
Pros: It didn't cause me to be audited by the IRS, make my dog run away nor was it directly responsible for the annual summertime price hike on gasoline at the pump. Not that I can prove anyway. But I have my suspicions.
Cons: Simply had zero effect on signal strength.
Other Thoughts: You'd be better off taking the price of this and adding it towards a better performing router. Or ordering a keg to drown your sorrows over paying this price for being taken to the cleaners.READ FULL REVIEW
