This review is from: NUANCE Dragon Naturally Speaking Home 13 - Key Card
Pros: Dragon NaturallySpeaking has always been on the cutting edge of voice recognition software. Version 13 is very good and has a new interface, which I really like.
Cons: I thought I was purchasing a license and would be able to download instantly. Unfortunately, this product is a physical key card that was mailed to me. Additionally, it was sent via DHL and USPS which took three days (two days longer than typical for NewEgg). When the card arrived the download experience at Nuance is also pretty bad. Before you can download, you must install an extension to your browser. The extension runs constantly in the background even when the browser is closed. I definitely have a better experience with good old-fashioned CDs.
Other Thoughts: Grab the retail, skip the download.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is a great PC for the price. It's my second Cyberpower PC and the first one is still alive and kicking. It comes with Windows 8, which is a significant change from Windows 7. Not bad, but it takes getting used to. The PC itself has three fans and stays very cool. The cabling inside is really well done. This is my first PC with the power supply located in the bottom of the case. That extra 15 inches of power cord is awesome. It comes with Windows 8, Google Chrome and TrendMicro Antivirus preinstalled. Very clean, no extra software.
Cons: The only con is the loudness of the fans. It has two intake and one exhaust fans. They are good quality and quiet, but not as quiet as my previous PC from the same manufacturer. My old PC was whisper soft because the intake fan only kicked on when it got warm. I haven't figured out how to regulate the fans if it's possible. Three fans running all the time must also use a fair amount of power. For a gamer, it's no big deal, but in my office it's not ideal.
Other Thoughts: The case is very large. I didn't put this in pro or con, because it's both. There's lots of room inside so future expansion is easy and you don't have to be a surgeon to fit between components. The con is that it's big. It's one of the largest cases I've seen, so make sure to check the dimensions if you are concerned about space.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Accurate color balance. Low screen glare. Very bright whites. Good blacks. Very stable stand. 90 degree rotate works well an it's still as stable. The viewable screen area goes right to the edge. USB ports on the bottom are great because my PC is under the desk. Trackball and keyboard connect through monitor giving me more mobility w/ wired devices.
Cons: These are small issues. The frame is about 3/4 inch on 3 sides and 1 inch on bottom. I wish it was narrower. When raising monitor to swivel screen, the arm has just two settings. It locks in place in the higher setting for using the monitor vertically. In this high position you can use it vertically or horizontally. It would be nice if it could be positioned at any height. I use it horizontally but would like it to be adjustable to a few inches higher.
Other Thoughts: I like chicken enchiladas.READ FULL REVIEW
