This review is from: The Last of Us Remastered PS4
Pros: Well... where do I start? In terms of graphics, Naughty Dog has packed the game with plenty to see and stare at in amazement. The first scene with the play through of the introduction is stunning, exciting, and emotional all wrapped up in one. Incredible visual scenes is what it takes to create this life-like cinematic atmosphere. The game itself is very well-balanced, combining action, stealth, puzzle solving, item enhancing and inventory collecting. The cut-scenes and character acting/animations are very well done. It's like watching a movie that was thoughtfully directed. The Last of Us is hard to put down. The game does a good job of keeping the player wondering what will happen next...
Cons: **Originally, I wrote this review for the PS3 version. And the only con I could think of was graphics. One of the best things about the games is what I was most critical of. Even though, the graphics were great on the PS3, the problem was that the beauty and splendor of TLOU would have benefitted way better on an HD platform. Well, now that that has happened, this is no longer a con. The game is gorgeous and plays so much better in HD. Thank you Playstaton and Naughty Dog.
Other Thoughts: I can see why The Last of Us won't be a game for everybody but I can guarantee most gamers casual and hardcore will love it. The release of The Last of Us is what persuaded me to finally buy a PS3 (slim). But now that I've got the PS4, I've upgraded to the remastered version of TLOU. Can't wait to play all the way through and then check out the extra content.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: FREMO P130 13000mAh Power Bank External Battery Charger for iPhone, iPad Air, mini, Galaxy S5, Note, Galaxy Tab, Nexus, HTC One, One 2 (M8), PS Vita and other Smartphones and Tablets (made by SCUD)
Pros: With a 13000 mAh capacity and two USB charging ports, this Power Bank battery charger is a great accessory for long trips or going days without a convenient power source for charging up small USB devices. For an evening work phone I use a Blackberry Q10 and for personal I have an iPhone 5S. Both are about the same as far as battery usage goes. My initial and main test was done with the Q10 since I keep it in the same spot every day. After fully charging the PowerBank (see the Cons section on charging), I connected the Q10 (with no charge) and kept it connected until the PowerBank charge ran out. The Q10 charged up to full capacity in 2 hours and stayed fully charged for 8 days. So what does this mean in real world? If the Q10 charges in 2 hours and stays fully charged for 8 days, ball park the Q10 could be charged 96 times with one fully charged Power Bank. So in other words, if the Q10 battery only lasts 2 days with minimal talk and data use, in theory the Q10 could last 192 days without ever needing an external AC power source.
Cons: The Power Bank is small but heavy. It would be like carrying around a small Bible made of lead. It comes with no plug-in AC adapter, only a very short 8 inch USB cord. The instructions say to be charged with a USB computer port. This doesn't make sense to me. It would be more convenient to use a USB AC adapter. The good news is they are cheap and plentiful and can be found at any computer store. Or a smart phone USB AC adapter would work too. I used the Q10 adapter to charge the Power Bank. The only problem with charging the Power Bank, it literally took 3 days to get a full charge.
Other Thoughts: In summary, the good is it lasts a long time and will continue to charge small devices for days without ever needing to be recharged itself. The bad is it takes so long to fully charge its own batteries.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: First of all ASRock develops some pretty nice motherboards. This one is no different. I love the Solid build. It's a gorgeous board. High quality parts, magnetic and heat resistant, better cooling with aluminum alloy heatsinks. The first board to have Ultra M.2 for High speed storage devices. (Note M.2 is shared with SATA Express)
LGA 1150 / Z97, Quad SLI/Crossfire / PCI Express 3.0. 3 x built-in display ports VGA/DVI/HDMI. 7.1 HD Purity Sound. Up to DDR3 3000. 10 x USB 3.0 and 10 x SATA3. RAID 0,1,5,10. HDD Saver Functions. 2 x Ethernet LAN Ports (Intel and Realtek). Fully detailed High Res (HD) UEFI BIOS. Excellent overclocking.
Cons: none really, IMO. Missing a few old school ports and M.2 is shared with SATA Express. But not shared with eSATA
Other Thoughts: Overall a great future proof board for professionals, enthusiasts, and gamers. And its ASRock.READ FULL REVIEW
