This review is from: SONY PlayStation Plus 1 Year Membership (prepaid game card)
Pros: Been a PS+ member since the month it came out and hundreds of games later I do not regret it.
Newegg has some good promos now and again where you'll be able to snag a year for $3 a month.
Cons: Unless you're jobless you're going to receive more games from this than you'll have time to play. But they're not always games you'd want to play or even purchase.
Sony likes to have sales where PS+ members get huge discounts on games, then 2-3 months later announce those games as upcoming "free games on PS+" after you've purchased. It'll make you quit buying games from their online store.
It'll only take a few times of getting burned before you stop buying during those sales.
This review is from: Silent Hunter 5 Battle of the Atlantic Gold Edition [Online Game Code]
Pros: Once I installed enough mods I found the game more fun than 3.
And seeing as you can mod it and download mods for this game, a lot of the cons can be eliminated.
Cons: If you do not mod this game, it would be a 1 egg. It's bad. Key features (since 3 & even 4) have been removed. I am not sure if this was to simplify the game - didn't work - or the dev team doesn't even play their own game.
Before purchasing the game head to subsim and check out the mods / how to install them / thread.
If you're not comfortable with mods then save your money, or just buy SH3.
This review is from: NETIS ST3108S Unmanaged 8 Port Fast Ethernet Desktop Plastic Switch
Pros: I don't use the switch to transfer files between computers so can't comment on the speed but there is no slowdown for devices connected to the internet through this switch.
I do stream movies between a server and devices connected to the switch (usually between 4-20mbps) and there is zero slowdown.
Zero setup, just plug everything in.
Other Thoughts: Not a fan of wireless when I can avoid it, and I have 2 PCs, 2 consoles, and a tv, and my tivo all needing internet.
$5 fix to a lack of connections on my wireless router (4).
