This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 LGA 1155 Intel Z68 HDMI USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Feature rich, easy setup.
Cons: Comes with two RAID chipsets but you cannot use them at the same time.
Other Thoughts: Don't buy this board if you plan to use the RAID functions. You can only have one RAID controller active at a time, even when using an add in controller (like an Adaptec). Unfortunately, Gigabyte doesn't post this information anywhere. You have to hunt for it or find out the hard way. In my case, this board is a waste for what I planned to use it for. For the record, Intel motherboards allow the simultaneous use of onboard RAID and addon RAID.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Panasonic VIERA 42" 1080p 600Hz Plasma HDTV TC-P42G10
Pros: Fantastic TV. Excellent picture and sound. It helps immensely if you know someone who's knowledgeable about settings to make this unit really shine. Sound is great especially for down firing speakers. There's no tin box sound like you hear with other TVs. Viera cast can be used to control a slim PS3 which is a wonderful plus.
Cons: Only 3 HDMI ports.
Other Thoughts: It's foolish not to consider this TV if you're in the market. Panasonic is the best choice for plasma. A friend of mine bought a plasma TV from a prominent Korean manufacturer and the quality was terrible.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative ZEN 2.5" Black 16GB MP3 / MP4 Player
Pros: Nice size.
Very nice screen.
It handles a range of formats.
Very nice capacity-price ratio.
If you use the unit with the screen turned off, the battery life is impressive.
The interface is easier to use than the ipod's wheel (too unnatural to rotate your thumb).
The included software isn't the best but is by no means bad or hard to use.
Cons: Three cons.
1. Random isn't so random. Sometimes out of 2000 songs I'll hear the same artist a few times in a row. Not a big deal.
2. Screen won't turn off by itself. You have to remember to switch the unit into hold mode. When you forget, the lcd screen is unforgiving to your battery.
3. No soft reset. This unit crashes with the same frequency as other products. Trouble is, you need to make sure you have access to a pin/toothpick/other pointy object to reset the unit.
Other Thoughts: I only use my Zen as a music player so I can't comment on FM tuner, Movies or any of the other included features. If you're going to buy and you have a laptop then you're in good shape. If you have a desktop, do yourself a favor and buy a USB Type A to Mini B cable. The included cable is only a few inches long.READ FULL REVIEW
