This review is from: Rosewill 7-sheet Cross-Cut Paper, Credit Card and Staples Shredder (RSH-407CB)
Pros: After growing tired of tearing up junk mail with my name and address on it, as well as all the stuff the utility companies put within a monthly printed bill, I decided to purchase a low-end shredder to see if I would actually use it. I have not been disappointed at all. For my purposes this Rosewill shredder gets the job done. It is compact and does not occupy a lot of my floor space. The small plastic window on the front of the waste bin allows me to see the shredded paper level. I like that the shred mechanism automatically turns on and off within a few seconds of my using it, cutting down on my electric bill. If you have just a few items to shred each day, this is a great buy.

Pros: I purchased a complete HP quad-core Windows 7 PC from NewEgg at a great price, and the computer needed a few upgrades so I could continue my World of Warcraft addiction. The HP computer has an Nvidia motherboard, but I am a fan of ATI Radeon graphics. I selected this video card based upon reviews of other NewEgg buyers, the price, online testing reviews, and Free Shipping. Installation of the card was easy: Windows drivers from the CD installed without error, and I am very pleased with the overall performance thus far. I have no plans to overclock this card although the Control Center provides all the necessary tools to do so.
Cons: Like other reviews on this product, I am frequently hearing the video card fan 'spin-up' while playing games. It occurs every 8 seconds, and sounds like a distant hair-dryer being switched on-then-off. On the locked/default installation setting, the video card fan spins at a very quiet 30% when the PC is only running Windows 7. I am researching online to find safe operating parameters so I do not burn out the card by unlocking the default setting and modifying the fan speed to prevent the spin-ups during gameplay.
Also using the default installation card setting, in World of Warcraft the distant shading effects are blocked and pixelated, but this too can be fixed by me with research and testing. I wanted to note that the video card settings require a bit of refinement and tweaking.
Other Thoughts: I am confident that after I find the proper settings this will be a powerful card for gaming. For those that are shopping, compare these video card specs with an ATI Radeon 4850...pretty impressive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NYKO FrontMan Guitar for PS3
Pros: Built solid. Appearance is appealing to players.
Cons: Utilizing this guitar with Aerosmith Guitar Hero for Playstation 3 we have consistently suffered connectivity problems while playing this device as controller 1 or controller 2. Single player or dual player, it simply disconnects mid-play. At this time we only own Aerosmith Guitar Hero, and we plan on trying other editions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band. We are hoping that it is a glich related to this edition of Guitar Hero, and not the device itself. The foot-pedal switch is a novel idea and looks neat, but if you are limited on space around your game system plan on buying a usb extender.
Other Thoughts: This item was delivered in a stylish package that created a great Christmas gift. The instruction sheet was also been very helpful.READ FULL REVIEW
