Motorola  Talkabout MR350R 2-Way Radios (1 Pair) 22-Channel FRS/GMRS 35 Mile
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Bought for a road trip 09/26/2012

This review is from: Motorola Talkabout MR350R 2-Way Radios (1 Pair) 22-Channel FRS/GMRS 35 Mile

Pros: Bought these for a road trip so my wife and I could talk to each other easily during a road trip in two cars. Battery life was great. Could talk off and on for a full day of driving and the batteries were only about half depleted. Charger easily had them ready again for the next day.

Range was good. Some difficulty every now and then if we got too far from each other, but that was more due to the terrain than the radios I think.

Definitely would recommend these for any similar use.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I had to read up a little bit about what frequencies were okay to use without a license. I didn't know much about that before buying these. Make sure you use an FRS channel if you don't have a GMRS license. FRS is channels 8 to 14 I think.

Western Digital Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet and seems reliable. Formats in NTFS to 931 GB usable space. Copied several hundred GB of backup information to it quickly and painlessly. Shipping container was high quality to protect the drive.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: I'll update if anything bad happens, but the drive works wonderfully so far. I'd imagine the folks complaining about the noise aren't using fans in their computer. Also, make sure you read information about the Taiwan flooding before you jump on the "Newegg is price gouging us" bandwagon.

EVGA GeForce GT 520 (Fermi) DirectX 11 01G-P3-1521-KR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Does everything I need it to do. Good performance, video playback, and transmits both audio and video over HDMI.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Used for a HTPC. Works great for that application. This card is not meant for 3D gaming, but it works okay for that too.
