Pros: Best choice for building a first or upgrade Ivy Bridge based workstation. Price of unit was the determining factor. At $100 less than a i7-3770, but has all the toys - less 100 mhz. And a few more instructions, too. If BIOS is set correctly, this unit will ramp up 2 cores to 3.7GHZ or all 4 to 3.5 GHZ, then idle back down to 1.6 GHZ in a "not so busy" state, idling at just 12 watts! Stock cooler works just fine even when benchmarking some games. Highest temp was 65c after 10 minutes stress test. Normal work like email, word docs, spreadsheets, etc. just fly. Google maps, animated weather maps, etc. also zip along. No hesitation. Runs WEI @7.7. Running on a MSI Z77A-G43 MB. Make sure your MB supports XEON. Absolutely the best bang for your buck, and its $5 less now than when I bought it. Thank you, Newegg!
Cons: Not really a CON, but, make no mistake. If you just replace your current CPU with this unit, you MUST reload your O/S. Best if your doing a new/fresh build.
Other Thoughts: Just do it. Super power for cheap!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MOTOROLA MD200R Talkabout Two-way Radio
Pros: Works well as communication between vehicles on a trip. 2 miles is about max range. Works well as intercom between campers when on site. Reglar AA batteries last very long in standby mode.
Cons: Range is NOT 20 miles even in the best situations.
Other Thoughts: Would be nice if Motorola included a power output graph for each frequency used.READ FULL REVIEW
