This review is from: Rosewill 1800-Watt Induction Cooker with Stainless steel pot RHAI-13001
Pros: Induction cooking is awesome!
My first test was an egg, I heated the oil way to hot because thing gets hot ridiculously fast, and the egg cooked in like 45 seconds, it cooked so differently than my coil heaters that the texture was unlike any egg I'd ever made before, it was delicious and awesome!! and fast, so fast I didn't have to shred cheese while cooking.
Cons: No more long cook times to shred cheese.
Other Thoughts: This review is really for induction cook tops in general, I can't compare to any other induction cook tops since this is the only one I've ever used.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tomb Raider [Online Game Code]
Pros: Fantastic graphics, pretty well done movement engines and so far it has a fairly intriguing story (only 7% done).
I've never played more than 5 minutes of any tomb raider game, I just saw that online graphics card reviewers were using this game as a benchmark, I found it cheap I bought it.
I was able to run it on Ultimate and it's just awesome.... I never thought hair could be cool (TressFx is the difference between Ultra and Ultimate, and TFX is mentioned as a hair improver, but I imagine it also works on things like grass, I don't know).
I played with the benchmark for an hour before I actually player the game and am so far pretty impressed.
Not Afraid to be a little gory and messy, so far I've seen Laura get dead in more ways than I could recall, so ya, it's a lot darker than I expected.
Cons: I Ctrl+Alt+Del'd the game and it crashed, I did this once, so at this point, is has a 100% crash rate in this scenario.
Other Thoughts: I got everything I expected before I even started playing, so this is an easy 5 Eggs/READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've bought a number of these, they all work "fine".
Cons: sometimes they can be directly next to the router and still have no connection.
My computers beeen down for days, couldn't figure it out, it was mimicking a crashed hard drive, no sign of life at boot, but BIOS recognized the drives.... I unplugged the adapter and it works perfectly now.(I wrote a more detailed account, but walked away for 5 minutes and my computer restart for a Windows update, lost it all.... your loss, sorry.
Other Thoughts: it's quicker to put this in a new computer and DL the drives online than it is to use the discs provided by the manfacturers.
If you need it for actual WiFi use, don't buy it, these are garbage, plus they're annoying at boot/connection and can lock up your PC.
