Pros: Reliability, Storage size, and RPM speed
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I've been using this for almost a year now without any issues. I got this drive because my laptop only had a piddly 160GB drive, which is laughable nowadays. I really wanted a 1TB 7200RPM drive but could not find one reasonably priced at the time. So I went for this 750GB one and I couldn't be happier. It was easy to install and worked great (but I had to use Acronis Disk Image to make sure all existing partitions were copied, such as the hidden backup one).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Antec Cooling Pad NOTEBOOK COOLER CLASSIC B
Pros: Does what it is supposed to do and at a low cost.
Other Thoughts: My laptop front would get very hot and this notebook cooler keeps in running cooler. Before it was hot to the touch, now it's just slightly warm.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Flip UltraHD Camcorder - Black & Chrome, 120 Minutes
Pros: Very, very easy to use. If camcorder is steady and your subject isn't moving, this takes great video. Good for small (screen area size, not file size, meaning not HD) web videos.
Cons: Very poor low light performance (especially compared to my Panasonic miniDV) and basically this should only be used outdoors and maybe inside with lots of natural sunlight through a window. Does not have image stabilization which is a must if you plan on recording while walking (or even moving). Your hand must be so steady in order not to see frames jumping. Also, there is noticeable blur when your subject is moving or even worse if you are moving the camera AND your subject is moving. This reduces it's use to very specific situations which at the moment I'm hard pressed to find.
Other Thoughts: I bought this as a travel camcorder for quick, spur of the moment video. My intention was to eventually replace my miniDV camcorder with a smaller version, such as this, but these little guys just aren't there yet. Image stabilization is necessary and I would pay more for a compact camcorder that had one. If you only plan to use this for lame Facebook and YouTube uploads then you've found your camera. If you plan to archive your videos and use them for home movies, I urge your to look elsewhere. Despite this, I believe Cisco is on the right track with Flip, and if they just add IS and more bells and whistles, I would even consider buying a better model, if they are going to make one.READ FULL REVIEW
