This review is from: Avatar (2-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo/WS 1.78:1/ENG/FREN/SPAN) Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation); Sigourney Weaver (Aliens); Zoe Saldana (Star Trek); Michelle Rodriguez (Fast & Furious)
Pros: 1.78:1 Aspect ratio. Need I say more? This film doesn't have those notorious black bands at the top and bottom, so it will fill up your entire 1080p screen. Fantatic? I think so. Very crisp movie (in terms of video quality), and spectacular CGI.
Cons: No, this film isn't the best film of the decade, regardless of what you heard. Avatar has an incredibly generic plot.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Does exactly what it is advertised to do - quickly scanned my books. After the initial lamp warmup, I could scan 311 pages per hour - much higher than any other scanner. Each scan takes about 8 seconds.
Cons: Software is very confusing. I opted to get Acrobat pro instead of the included PDF software.
Other Thoughts: I scanned a textbook. The best method for me was to make all the pictures in .tif format, and put every image in a folder. Then use acrobat to merge all the images into a single PDF file.
The pdf file, after the quick optimization from acrobat, was only about 300mb for a 1000-page book
This review is from: Apple iPod nano (4th Gen) 2.0" Black 16GB MP3 / MP4 Player MB918LL/A
Pros: It's really small. I actually played around with others Nano's, but I was still very amazed how small this was when I got it. The screen size is very crisp! It has the same resolution as the iPod Classic, but in a much smaller screen size. Watching the Dark Knight on this thing is just fine, though. Getting the Nano in black is a good idea - It is a better color to view the screen against. 16gb is plenty of space for most people.
Cons: iTunes still has it shares of problems. Three of my albums artwork would not transfer to the iPod (even though it was in iTunes), so I had to get different artwork from google and import it in.
Other Thoughts: It took me two weeks to get this thing - But something wrong with UPS. It took me about two hours to charge this fully before I used it.
Oh, and it doesn't come with music quiz! What's up with that?
