BlackBerry Red Skin For Curve HDW-13840-003

4 out of 5 eggs Nice feel, color not great 01/29/2011

This review is from: BlackBerry Red Skin For Curve HDW-13840-003

Pros: Good fit, decent protection, great sticky-friction feel.

Cons: More orange than red. Kind of a dull, not-quite-ripe plastic tomato red. I probably would swap it for the black one if I really cared about looks.

Other Thoughts: Does the job. Got here super fast, too -- ordered Friday, arrived Monday, no shipping cost. That's pretty cool.

5 out of 5 eggs Best Windows Yet? 01/29/2011

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders

Pros: Clean, customizable, and user-friendly. Vista was not worth giving up XP; Win7 (probably) is.

Cons: Switching to admin profile to do anything serious is kind of annoying, but it doesn't come up often. If I had more people around my PC I'd probably actually appreciate it.

Not many of my apps actually benefit much from 64-bit. Maybe that will change.

It's a bit harder to find & change some options compared to XP -- specifically, I had a little trouble with network and audio settings. But it didn't take long to get everything running smoothly.

Takes up a fair amount of space on my 64GB SSD, even after trimming many unnecessary components.

Other Thoughts: I've been using Windows on and off ever since 3.1 (along with Mac and various Linux distros) and I've criticized Microsoft as much as anyone. But this is a good OS.

Western Digital Black WD1002FAEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Big and fast and cheap.

Cons: Unsure if the occasional clicking is normal HDD activity or not...but no performance issues, so I'll let it go for now.

Takes a second to read sometimes after a long period of inactivity, but still much faster than my old 1.5Gbit/s HDD.

I totally skipped an SATA generation from my last PC to this one, so I can't personally confirm that it's much faster than a 3.0Gbit/s HDD.

Other Thoughts: In the past, I've had more problems with WD drives than I've had with Seagates, but I just couldn't resist the price + performance vs. cost ratio. If it holds out for over a year or two, I'll consider it totally worthwhile.
