New Portable Mini 45x LED Light Pocket Microscope Magnifier Loupe Hand Held

4 out of 5 eggs New Portable Mini 45x LED Light Pocket Microscope Magnifier Loupe Hand Held 04/03/2015

This review is from: New Portable Mini 45x LED Light Pocket Microscope Magnifier Loupe Hand Held

Pros: quick shipping considering coming from overseas. Works as intended, bright LED light on end helps. even works with my camera or phone but you have to hold it in place. nice pouch carrying case, comes with batteries too. their customer service even contacted me to ask if it had arrived yet, but i hadnt at that time, but did within a day or two later.

Cons: its tiny! though not a big con, just much smaller than i expected. i think it did mention the size in the description.

Other Thoughts: i bought this for a project i was working on. but its to small for that but works really good for macro viewing!! If i could upload pics here I'd show you the great magnification it has. Its like a small microscope in your pocket. very cool IMO. cant buy something like this where i live for less than $5, i would recommend if you need a small magnifier.

5 out of 5 eggs XFX Double D R9-280A-TDFD Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card 04/03/2015

This review is from: XFX Double D R9-280A-TDFD Radeon R9 280 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Ive had my XFX R280 for a month now, and it takes everything i throw at it!! For having 2 power connectors it really doesnt use that much power, even when maxing out game settings, which it rarely does go full throttle. Fans are quiet. Did not have any issues with installation or drivers once i remove all the old ones. Ive played Evolve, I am Alive, Evil Within, Outlast, Dying Light, and a few others with all the settings maxed out and it does great! Getting 50-150 FPS, depending on whats going on in the game.

Cons: not really a con but it is almost 12" long. I had to move my DVD drive to make room for the card to fit.
Not real impressed with the monitoring software, it was causing system lag on boot and while it was running in the background but not being used. Then when i tried using the snapshot or video record feature it never worked, so i removed it and things went back to normal.

Other Thoughts: Even though my PC is a little over 4 yrs old, running a Phenom X4 BE 3.4Ghz - w/8GB of G Skill memory and only a 650W power supply it runs great! It runs dual monitors with DVI really well too. Runs great on my 50" Vizio tv via HDMI.
I use GPUZ and AIDA64 to monitor temps and fans. Max temps Ive seen was 57C running 3DMark or Passmark, gaming it only get to around 50C and fans never go full blast. this was with ambient room temps of around 25-30C.
Also not really a con but it would have been nice if they included at least 1 mini DP to dvi/hdmi adapter, or their adapter kit. but that would prob raise the price by $50-60. I started my rebate stuff offer immediately and got a quick response and notified it would arrive in 2-4 wks.

Ive always been an ATI/AMD guy, mainly due to cost savings they Rock!
My last VC was a AGP ATI All in Wonder w/256MB Vram, and cost over $500, but came with tons of cables and software. Overheating was a problem back then due to faulty fans, lets hope these are better designed.

I would recommend this card to anyone wanting a lower cost VC, lots of bang for the buck IMO. just make sure you have room for it in your case. LOL

Team X Series 64GB Flash Drive Model TX12164GR01

5 out of 5 eggs Team X Series 64GB Flash Drive Model TX12164GR01 03/04/2015

This review is from: Team X Series 64GB Flash Drive Model TX12164GR01

Pros: bought one of these 12/30/14 , its working great! more storage than most would ever need. USB 3.0 makes for speedy file transfers even with 10-15GB at one time. Really impressed performance wise, since i only have usb 2.0 on my pc. The outer case is soft rubbery texture grips well. LIFETIME WARRANTY

Cons: none other than the soft rubbery casing, if its crushed to hard you will damage the unit! It also seems to get a little hot being wrapped in the rubber casing. but nothing worth taking an egg off

Other Thoughts: a vent hole might have been nice but would compromise the waterproof it has when capped.
Ive purchased several other Team USB 3.0 drives and only had one flake out corrupted/write protected. So i called Team and they told me how to restore/fix the drive to verify it was working or not.
EASY FIX - go to the Team website, download the restore software, run it, and it will fixed like new !! (you will loose any data btw)

I see so many bad reviews for these, and IMO its prob operator error that causes the corruption. I think it actually does have an activity led inside but you cant see it thru the case.
So when i remove mine, i always use the 'remove usb device' and count 3-4 seconds before removing. It might be a small hassle, but worth it not to loose your data. Sucks they're sold out, i'd prob buy a few more for my kids.
