Pros: This thing is SOLID! It's like picking up a UPS it's so heavy. The mounting holes in back are also a nice touch to help prevent these things from walking-off when they're placed in remote offices. Although I haven't set it in my fireplace to see if the data is recoverable, I have every confidence that it will hold up to anything short of thermite. The videos of ioSafe abusing these things and still being able to access the data are good enough for me.
Functionally, it performs like any other eSATA-connected external hard drive. It's fast, doesn't take forever to transfer GB's of files, and doesn't get those weird $MFT corruption errors that large transfers over USB tends to have.
Other Thoughts: DR always includes some amount of prayer, the amount is usually inversely proportional to the confidence you have in your backups.
As a consultant, this is a dream come true. All my customers are getting one; they practically sell themselves. Just have them hold it and it's a done deal. I've always wanted a disk-based DR solution that didn't require constantly swapping hard drives (which Windows sometimes REALLY doesn't like) or relying solely on tape (which are expensive and constantly break). Although this isn't a complete substitute for off-site data backups in a true DR setup, it's still the best solution I've found that offers the most protection for your data on-site.
Pros: If you love your eyes (and your brain for that matter), then you need to buy these glasses. Go on, go ahead, I'll wait...
Once you sit in front of a computer screen, there's this "oh wow" moment that you have where you realize that if you didn't own these glasses now, you knew what your next purchase on NewEgg was going to be!
Things are just easier to see on a monitor now. You don't have to semi-squint to focus on the letters (which you do involuntarily). After my usual 8+ hours in front of a monitor I don't have that dull headache at the end of the day.
In short, these things are pure awesome.
Cons: With whatever mild prescription these things have, going from screen to desk and back takes a second or so to adjust. At the risk of auto-enrollment into the AARP, I'd say that a pair of bi-focals would be very beneficial. No 'script on the bottom so you can read/write on your desk, and a script on the top to see the screen. Or you can just raise your chin an inch and see below the frames, but then the annoying guy in the cube next to you might think you're nodding and actually WANT to hear about his "totally awesome trail-mix."
Other Thoughts: Get them now. Seriously. These glasses are solidly in the "best thing I've ever purchased on NewEgg" category. It was my old faithful Razer Copperhead that I've had for YEARS, but these glasses easily exceed that now. Interestingly, they do kind of remind me of the Razer in that once you move the cursor using a Razer you can tell there's a difference without necessarily being able to describe why you like them better. You just do!
Finally, eye transplants are expensive/impossible so do yourself a solid and buy these glasses.
This review is from: Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation Xbox 360 Game
Pros: Best Ace Combat game yet! Graphics are amazing, new features (High-G turns, Allied Attack/Cover and in-map landing fields) make it instantly obsolete your old AC games. Better balance with the weapons (Rockets are actually worth carrying and FAEBs are like mini A-bombs).
Cons: Your right index finger will get hella cramped after a couple of hours. You spend 99% of the game with the trigger held down because of the High-G turns. best to find a big rubber band to keep it held down.
Other Thoughts: Namco definitely raised the bar with this game. Even if you aren't an old school AC fan and you want a good flight sim this is the game to get. Easy to learn and funner than heck. haven't even made it to MP I've been so consumed with the SP campaign. If you are even viewing this page then BUY THIS GAME!READ FULL REVIEW
