This review is from: Audiovox FMDIRB
Pros: Price, Works Seamlessly with Audiovox/Advent Players, Long Audio Cord, No more interference!
Cons: Doesn't fit all car antennas/radios (needed adapters for both radio and antenna for late model dodge caravan... Metra EU-40). Comes with old school antenna plug, so check your radio first!
Other Thoughts: This works as a wired FM modulator. It requires a device that transmits FM output through a 3.5mm jack.
This is found on the underside of most Audiovox and Advent brand overhead DVD players.
The antenna plug goes into the back of your radio in the dash. You may need an adapter for this, I did. Your existing antenna plug goes into the metal box (again an adapter may be needed). The long wire is then routed behind/under the dash, up the side support beam, across the headliner to the DVD player and the 3.5 mm plug goes into the underside if the DVD player. Most radio shops can install this module for a reasonable price ($100-200 USD) if you aren't comfortable with this process.
It works best if you disconnect the little blue FM wire from the player first.
Now when you turn on the player, whatever channel you've chosen on the DVD player will be transmitted via the wire to your radio. No interference at all.
This WILL NOT work as a direct sound output (ie. From an iPod)
This review is from: Logitech Desktop MK120 Mouse and keyboard Combo (920-002565)
Pros: Nice, clean design. Mouse is comfortable (and can be easily used by a left-handed individual). Excellent price.
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice, wired keyboard and mouse combo. As long as you understand what you are getting (basic keyboard, two button mouse with a center, clickable scroll wheel), you should be very happy.
It does not have back-lit keys, it doesn't have dedicated keyboard shortcuts, it doesn't do your dishes...
If you need a basic, wired keyboard and mouse at a great price (which is what 99% of users out there will want), this is a perfect choice. If you are looking for more, look elsewhere.
Pros: * Worked on first try (12 for 12 now)
* Correct timings found by mobo on first try
* Very stable
* Low profile heat spreader (allows larger CPU cooler)
* Beautiful orange color, very reflective (looks great with interior case LEDs turned on)
Cons: * None
Other Thoughts: G.Skill is my RAM of choice in all the rigs I build (for myself and for others). I am 12 for 12 using G.Skill (over the past 24 months) with every single stick I've used working perfectly the first time.
I really like the G.Skill Ripjaws and Sniper series, but I'm drawn to the low-profile design of the Ares RAM. It gives me the room I need if an aftermarket CPU cooler (eg. Hyper 212 Evo, etc) is going to be installed.
It's silly, but I really like the Orange color as well. The ad pictures really do not do it justice. It's a deep orange color and very reflective (LEDs just bounce right off making the them very attractive with interior case lighting). It just looks really nice when it's installed.
You can get the Ares RAM in both blue and red as well, but I cannot speak to how they look. All my customers want the orange once they've seen how they look installed.
