This review is from: PLANTRONICS 655 Discovery Bluetooth headset with AudioIQ Bulk
Pros: I bought 3 of these for family members because of the California driving law. I had already owned a Voyager 640 for over a year now and hoped the quality would be similar.
I was impressed with how clear this sounds and how well it connected to our VZN phones...an LG, RAZR and Blackberry Pearl.
Cons: Comes with 1 earpiece...i believe it is a large. Not a problem for me but the retail version comes with small/med/large...of course that version also costs a lot more than this.
you can get those earpieces cheap at pc connection.
Other Thoughts: I think i'll have a sandwhich nowREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: This scanner is quick, fairly quiet and does a great job of scanning textbooks straight to PDF. I had the pleasure of buying a $200 book that was not very different from prior editions but the publisher chose to gouge the students anyway.
I was able to scan the 400 pages I needed in about 2 hours.
It would've been quicker but I was getting distracted.
Cons: The PlusTek software UI's are straight out of 1994, but they work.
Other Thoughts: First off, the newegg price blows away the evil competitor I bought mine from. Due to lack of inventory and a quickly approaching textbook return deadline at school I had to purchase this at any price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Toledo Dual-Core 2.2 GHz Socket 939 ADA4400CDBOX Processor
Pros: Incredibly fast right out of the box. Excellent price/performance.
1MB cache per core. I cannot throw enough at this processor. I am multitasking in ways that would set my old system a blaze.
Cons: You quickly realize that Net I/O and Disk I/O stick out like sore thumbs.
Installing on an older 939 MB can be tricky. Especially when you're 9 Bios revisions behind.
Other Thoughts: I didn't realize there was another 4400 for socket 939 that runs at a lower 89 watts. I found out right after I submitted my order. I wonder in retrospect what the other trade offs are since this one costs roughly ten dollars more.READ FULL REVIEW
