This review is from: HT | OMEGA eClaro 7.1 Channels 24-bit 192KHz PCI Express x1 Interface Sound Card
Pros: Purely divine sound quality. High sample rate.
Cons: What I have noticed regarding my own experience (as well as others) the card / drivers not working....if used in a dedicated PCI-E 4x slot = all is well.
When I switched boards, my PCI-E 4x slot was covered by vid card, so I put into the next available PCI-E 16x slot...it had issues. I moved it the 3rd (Tri-Fire) PCI-E 16x slot & it worked just fine.
Hope that helps someone, somewhere as I firmly stand behind HT Omega & their product. I have used nothing but their cards back since I got my Striker 7.1
Pros: For the $2000 price point, this laptop wins hands down. You can't slow this thing down. I can play all of my games on the Highest settings smoothly.
The display IS like everyone says, the best on any laptop. Housing is solid & well built. The keyboard feels nice & is back-lit. Speakers are very nice for a laptop.
The dual Hard Drive bays are very easy to access (750GB x2) - 16GB of DDR3 - Blue Ray Drive.
The quick mode knob is rather nifty & easily configures the desired setting. The cooling system is smart, quiet & effective. It includes a recovery disk.
I was extremely patient in waiting to buy a gaming laptop that would be on par with my desktop machine - this is it.
Cons: Well nothing is perfect, but this is as close to it as I can tell. I would have liked customizable key colors. The Power Brick is huge, so be aware - 200 watts ain't gonna be small. Has a fair amount of bloatware installed, but easily removed.
New Egg states 1.5TB which may lead some to believe that it supports RAID - the 2 drives are indeed separate & there doesn't seem to be any RAID support in the BIOS.
Other Thoughts: I looked really hard & long at the MSI offerings, but do to the quality control issues they seem to be plagued with - Samsung quality & style proved to be head & shoulders beyond. It's as aesthetically pleasing to look at & exceedingly enjoyable to compute, browse, entertain & GAME ON.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: House of the Dead: OVERKILL Extended Cut Playstation3 Game
Pros: i own HOD 3 & 4 along with the MOVE Sharpshooter: both games are absolute fun! my only gripe is that the storyline doesnt really develop.
Overkill Extended thrusts u into the same fun zombie killing excitment with a plot right out of a Tarrantino flick. The characters & dialogue will straight cheezily hilarious. I beleive that it actually got Guiness Book for most F-Bombs in a film/game.
As for the gameplay its solid 1080p shooting. Plenty of upgrades, minigames & achievements.
Two Player Co-Op doubles all the goodness.
Cons: The stero typical black guy becomes extremely annoying as is the culprit of most of the F-Bombs. Wish he could be muted.
Other Thoughts: if u can tolerate gratuitous use of profanity & gore; then buy it. its best played with the Move + Sharpshooter & 6pack of Stone Ruination IPA.READ FULL REVIEW
