Pros: Awesome picture for 720p. Well over 2000 hours of use and the lamp is still going strong.
Cons: It only lasted about 1 year and a month before it began to malfunction. I noticed recently the projector began displaying those white spots which are said to be dead pixels. Based on what I've read online this is due to a malfunctioning dlp chip. This appears to be a common problem with this series of projectors.
Other Thoughts: Worse case of buyers remorse ever. Spending $500 and getting only a year of use. It looks like many other customers are having the same problem. I'm hoping Acer will extend their warranty to cover the extra month. If not, then I'll see how much it cost for repairs. It's unfortunate news for me because this projector was an awesome solution to my problem of not having enough room for a big screen tv.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Impressive specs. Camera takes descent pictures, the screen is bright and has great color. Windows phone 7 interface is well designed and easy to use. The slide out surround speaker provides some of the clearest sound available on a mobile device. Zune software is easy to use and is great at helping to organize music & video libraries.
Cons: Too many to list, but here are the most annoying ones. Phone may be unlocked but some features only work on the AT&T network. No bluetooth file transfer, no expandable storage, limited app market, can only transfer files from pc with zune software, and can't download files directly to phone because there's no built in file manager. The whole design is similar to iPhone and imo that's not a good thing.
Other Thoughts: The device functions well when browsing the web, messaging, checking email, listening to music and viewing pictures or video. Beyond these basic functions WP7 is a huge step backwards from the WM 6.5 OS. It's completely mystifying why MS decided to go with such a closed OS. If their goal was to imitate a popular competitor they should have chosen Android instead of iPhone, as it's open nature is rapidly taking marketshare away from closed mobile operating systems like iOS and WP7. Hopefully MS will fix these problems with their next update. Until then the only way around these limitations is to void the warranty and jailbreak the device.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: DeathSmiles Xbox 360 Game
Pros: An excellent port of an original arcade title from Japan with a few extra options and gameplay modes. The game plays like many of the old school arcade shooters from decades past. You select your character and face off against waves of enemies throughout the stage until you reach the boss. The stages are fairly short but have adjustable difficulty for those looking for an extra challenge. There's also an online mode that supports 2 players.
Cons: This is one of those niche titles that may not be for everyone. The old school shooter mechanic and difficulty will turn off many gamers raised on Call of Duty & Madden.The graphics are decent for an older arcade title but the games console release could have used some extra polish. It's an arcade title so the game is over fairly quickly. Since the price is about the same as an xbla game it's not that much of a con.
Other Thoughts: Hard to believe that this game was $60 at one point. But at the current price it's a steal. The look of the game is similar to classic NES titles like Ghosts n Goblins or Castlevania with a heavy dose of side scrolling shooter, of course. Games like these are a rare find these days. With arcades in the U.S. gone forever it's nice to see these types of titles are still around for gamers to enjoy.READ FULL REVIEW
