Intel Gift Game - Star Trek Online
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs I'll pass... 12/27/2010

This review is from: Intel Gift Game - Star Trek Online

Pros: Came free with a processor purchase?

Cons: Requires a subscription to play beyond the 10 free days, an expensive one in my opinion. You'd have to be nuts (or have money flowing out of your ears) to pay the retail price for this and then pay a bloated subscription fee on top of that.

Other Thoughts: This is really a zero egger for me.

Logitech MX 5500 Revolution Black Bluetooth Cordless Desktop Standard keyboard & Mouse Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good enough range for me, but I haven't tried it past 10 ft yet. Attractive set overall. I can use the keyboard just fine to access the BIOS on my computer (Maximus III Extreme).

Cons: Doesn't come with an extension cord/dock for the USB receiver like other sets do which may be necessary for some people. Price is a bit steep, so get it on sale if you can.

Other Thoughts: If you can't access the BIOS on your computer with this keyboard, your computer may not like any USB keyboards or just some in particular. The scroll wheel has a feature that by default chooses whether to enable/disable the clicking/detenting based on what app you're using and what it deems appropriate, which was new for me. It can be set to always click or always freewheel if you prefer too.

Cables Unlimited - Toslink Optical Digital Audio cable - 10 FEET

  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Too fragile 04/19/2010

This review is from: Cables Unlimited - Toslink Optical Digital Audio cable - 10 FEET

Pros: Inexpensive. Solid connectors.

Cons: More fragile than eggs evidently. It worked fine the first day, nice and bright transmission through the cable. Disconnected it the same day, reconnected it the next day, and it didn't work. It was not kinked or wound tight, but the transmission was suddenly dim.

Other Thoughts: Fiber optics are fine for pushing tons of data across the continent through buried conduits, but they have no place in a home theater system if they have to treated this carefully.
