Pros: Great Hockey Puck!
Cons: This processor is pathetic, its very weak, my first time with AMD and probably the last. I'm not looking to game, I just wanted basic internet, web browser, e-mail, downloads, you tube, type of processing power and this proc disappointed me on all levels, its very slow even with a SSD and clean install of Windows 7 with 24 GB RAM DD3
Other Thoughts: Stick with Intel, 4 cores is just not enough power for today's computers, quad core was great 5-7 years ago with Windows XP, if you are using Windows 7 or newer you need at least 6 to 8 cores or more, seriously!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech Performance Mouse MX
Pros: This Mouse Rocks! Yes, its a bit pricey but like all things in life you get what you pay for. Sometimes you just have to spoil your self and say what they heck, a Benjamin for peace of mind is worth it considering that most people use a mouse every day and never think about what it would be like to experience luxury computing with precision clicking. If you are a graphics designer professional then this mouse is for you because you can customize the software to do what ever you want it to do, plus its great for gaming, the battery can be replaced if and when it can no longer hold a charge from the USB cable and what I love most about this mouse is the look and feel. Logitech is a great company, every product I have every purchased from them has always impressed me. This product was so well designed that I actually hated it at first because I did not understand how to operate it correctly and that was my fault, its a mouse that is designed not to be moved much, so less energy, less movements, less stress, less fatigue on your overall computing experience. Once you switch from an average mouse to a precision mouse everything else just sucks. You will never ever want to go back and over the course of time your hand will begin to mold into this perfectly sculpted masterpiece. Once you learn how to hold it and move it correctly you will fall in love just as I have learned how to operate it correctly. Initially I was very disappointed, but that's because I had the wrong expectations of what I thought it was, how it should operate and how it should feel. If and when you purchase this product you will begin to appreciate its architecture and in life everything comes down to structure! Well worth the Ferrari Sports Car Precision Instrument Gear Shifting Performance Price!
Other Thoughts: It takes some time getting use to, but once you get the hang of it the previous mouse you used to have will start to feel awkward and before you realize it, what used to feel normal and comfortable will feel different and that's what happened to me out of the box I did not understand that this mouse was hand crafted as a a precision instrument designed to be operated with the least amount of energy for the most amount of effectiveness. Thus its a learning curve, so keep using it and practice with it every day, in about a week or month you will ask yourself, gosh how did I every get along with out because everything else sucks and this mouse rocks. I used to hate it because it felt different but now I love it! When you start to measure millimeters you start to appreciate this mouse because everything is so close together that it either feels terrible after you unbox at first, yet give this one some time to get used to and it will fit you like a glove!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Monster Cable 129338-00 3 Feet iCable 800 for iPad, iPhone and iPod
Pros: Not Bad, Not Great. Its an OK solution and better then most purchase for 90% of the choices on the current marketplace. I have experimented with countless cables to connect my iPod player to the auxiliary port on my cars CD player and so far so good. I gave it three eggs because I consider this product average at best based on look, feel, quality and price. Its sad that I could design a better cable the Monster if given the opportunity, because this one is average and Average Sucks!
Cons: The cable length is too long for automobile auxiliary use, it should be 6" shorter or 2 feet tops, I don't like the way the cable feels, specifically the metal clips and fasteners might look shiny and pretty but are not well engineered in respect to design and material selection. The packing is nice, but the materials used to manufacture the cable feel cheap and slightly flimsy, it does not feel precision made or communicate quality or craftsmanship. Naturally as a result I am very disappointed as a consumer that Monster decided to cut corners on their entire product line. I have a much older Monster cable that has a very thick look and feel to it, the grip is stout and the plastic rubber molding grip feels great to the touch every time you plug or un-plug the cable. I wish Monster would go back to their roots and raise their standards because they Dominated the marketplace in the 1990's
Other Thoughts: I wish Monster would get its act together, their reputation is slipping because the quality of their products are not the same as they used to be. Monster used to dominate the market place and at the time could command a higher price for their premium cables, today you are luck if their product works adequately. I am very disappointed with New Egg for not offering a better selection on all of their audio cables or that Monster is no longer Dominating the Audiophile industry because they have lowered their standards and its a darn shame.READ FULL REVIEW
