Pros: Good monitor, lightweight, good looks.
Cons: Take some adjustments in both PC and Mac. Horrible software, don't install that MagicTune for PC or Mac, really bad and crashes in both systems. Awful stand, but fortunately I have a nice swivel stand from an old lcd, problem solved.
Other Thoughts: I'm primarily using this with my 2nd gen macbook pro. It looked really washed out when I first connected it, but after picking a difference color profile under Display in system Preferences, it looks perfect!
Under my Windows 7 PC, the text is really blurry somehow, I have cleartext on, but it still doesn't help, the blur is limited to system text, if fonts from websites looks just fine, which I suspect is probably a setting issue?
This review is from: BELKIN TuneCast Auto for iPod-Black Model F8V7101-BLK
Pros: Bought this for a road trip to go with my iphone and works perfectly in my friend's 03 honda accord once the right frequency was found, no matter where I put it, only a very faint hiss in the backgroup but thats the issue with every FM transmitters.
Cons: After the road trip I tested in my old Jetta, and the in dash radio could not get the transmitter's signal AT ALL, very disappointed :(
Other Thoughts: Might be a thing with antannas, probably need some DIY work to get this thing to work properly in older cars.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MacBook Pro
Pros: Fast-Faster than my AMD 64 3800+ desktop, not i'm playing games of course but everyday tasks.
Stable-I leave it on usually for month straight, never hanged on me, though my AMD box rarely does that now but some programs doesnt play well on XP.
The things I like the most are actually the auto dim screen, auto backlit keyboard and mouse/touchpad. The keyboard is super comfortable and EXTREMELY quite, with auto dim screen and backlit keyboard I work at night and for the 1st time my girlfriend did not complain; the mouse/touchpad is unbelievably convenient as well, never new the one-button mouse I use to bash about is such a nice design.
Cons: -Quite heavy although slim
-Wish I can turn off that "breathing light" when its sleeping, I have to cover it every night cuz its very distracting
-Office 2008 is not yet out and all the versions before that have slow startup time
-Wish iChat does MSN with video...
Other Thoughts: This is my very 1st Mac and let me tell ya, I really had to think hard about the Cons...I used this computer for some professional tasks like web design, web programming, C++....does everything well as you expect it to; especially many simple and casual tasks are well done, like web surfing just make me not wanting to turn on my PC. I like my AMD tower too as I put a lot of work into it, but its solely for gaming and running programs that doesn't run on Mac.
This has became my everyday computer and sure beats the Dells, even the Sonys I've used in the past; take it from a guy who use to laugh at Mac's one button touchpad ;)
