Pros: Haven't installed the card yet.
Cons: Haven't installed the card yet.
Other Thoughts: I knew it was too good to be true. A 2GB DDR5 PCI-e 3.0 card for $100? Everywhere I searched I found the same specs...until I found 2 conflicting spec pages on the Zotac website for this card.
One said PCI-e 2.0 and one said 3.0.
I contacted Zotac asking for clarification and was informed it uses PCI-e 2.0 - not 3.0 (they said they will update their website asap).
I just wanted to let everyone know that as the information on the web is misleading people to believe it's 3.0. Hopefully Newegg will read this review and consider revising the product info to state it uses PCI-e 2.0.
I will be getting the card in the mail tomorrow so I can't comment on the card's performance at the moment.
This review is from: Magic Color Changing Egg Timer Kitchen Cook Tool Soft to Hard-Boiled Thermometer
Pros: This little thing helps take the guesswork out of making hard boiled eggs ...to a point (see cons).
Cons: I placed cold water in a pot, placed 6 jumbo eggs in the pot along with this item. Right off the bat there was a bunch of debris that floated to the top. Some of it red and some of it misc colors.
There are no instructions so I wasn't sure what to expect.
The item starts to turn white in color, starting from the outside and working it's way to the center until the item is completely white. I'm assuming this means the eggs are done. Apparently I was wrong as I immediately cracked open one of the eggs under cold water and found that the inside wasn't COMPLETELY cooked.
It was edible and all but still, I feel like I'm going to have to wait a few additional minutes AFTER the item turns white to ensure the eggs are in fact hard boiled. This is a little disappointing.
Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a cool idea. I'm going to take my friends advice and poke a hole in the top and bottom of the eggs with a pin before cooking next time. Maybe if I do that, I won't have to wait additional minutes after the item turns white. Only time will tell.
I have to go now, I have eggs to eat :D
This review is from: Motorola Flipout MB511 Black/White 3G Unlocked GSM Smart Phone with Android 2.1
Pros: - The keyboard is nice.
- Touch screen is a nice feature.
- The GPS feature seems to work pretty well.
- Cool form factor.
Cons: - BATTERY LIFE. I've never seen a phone with such a poor battery. I just don't get it.
I really don't. Keep a charger handy.
If use the GPS, you're done lol.
Stream Pandora, you're done.
Send a lot of texts, you guessed it. Done.
- You can't upgrade the OS so it's stuck at 2.1.
- The camera is awful and pretty much useless.
- The notification light when you get a text or email isn't very good. The few home buttons blink but they blink white and the buttons are white to begin with so I have to literally stare at my phone for a few seconds to wait and see (not like a BlackBerry for example that will blink with a red LED).
- I've had numerous connection issues with Facebook and other apps. I pretty much use my company phone for everything from an entertainment standpoint.
- It has also rebooted on me 2 times in one day and I'm unsure why.
Other Thoughts: I have an iPhone my job provided but I wanted a personal phone with my own number, etc.
I went with StraightTalk and bought this phone because I wanted a phone with a decent keyboard.
I do very much like the keyboard but there is one strange quirk.
If I type in a symbol such as "$" it automatically places it one space back.
Very frustrating. So if I type:
"I paid $20 for the bag of dope."
It will show as:
If you try to be slick and add 2 spaces to compensate it makes a "." lol. You have to literally move the cursor back and add the space.
I don't know, maybe it's just my phone or an Android 2.1 issue.
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
