This review is from: Office 2010 Home and Student Product Key Card (no media)
Pros: Good Product. Personally I like the 2010 version very well. Better than 13. Priced reasonably and works well.
Cons: Have to download. Normally this would not be an issue. I actually prefer to download software but, when it is Microsoft, that is another issue. Had to have a Microsoft account which I have had for years but I purchased this for a work pc and I did not want to have to make an account for work so I used my own. No big deal but you should not have to have a Microsoft account to download and activate software you paid good money for. I guess it is no different than the games I play but with Microsoft it just seems intrusive. The biggest issue was the download link would not work with IE11. Imagine that. Had to use Firefox to download. I have always been one of the few loyal IE fans but IE11 sucks. It's compatibility issues go beyond an occasional issue. Sad when you can't use Microsoft's browser to download their own product.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pioneer 15X BD-R SATA Blu-ray Burner BDR-2208, Retail Kit.
Pros: This is the best optical drive I have ever owned. I have used Sony, Asus, LG, Lite-On, and HP in my builds. Always looking for the compromise between speed, noise, and quality. With the Pioneer, there is no compromise. It is built different than any drive I have used and it is very fast and quiet. I wish I had a free SATA port for a second one.
Cons: Like any other drive, does not contain a full function Blu-ray suit. This certainly is not a con against the drive but a comment since this field had to be populated. I wish the movie industry would lighten up. Until they do, there will not be a large number of choices to choose from when it comes to players. None of the current choices are worth the money you have to pay. For functionality, I like Aseesoft but for the playback engine, Cyberlink is still one of the best (I absolutely hate the way Cyberlink tries to constantly get their hand in your pocket).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High air flow. Quiet for the amount of air they move. Look great.
Cons: The holes where the screws mount will collapse if not careful.
Other Thoughts: I have almost always built with another manufacturer because the y were priced reasonable and worked well. I have tried several types of these new Corsair fans and I am totally sold. Three builds so far replacing all case and rad fans with Corsair and couldn't be happier. The comment with the screw holes; I have been buying small, hollow, nylon spacers and cutting it to the proper length and then painting them whatever color I need for the case. I then thread my mounting screws through these spacers and I don't have to worry about the fan mounting ears and it adds a subtle look of finish to the product.READ FULL REVIEW
