This review is from: Vizio 37" 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV VO370M
-A fair amount of options for optimizing picture, which is a rarity for this particular price point (although the bottom is falling out on prices for 40" and 42" LCDs)
-Once properly optimized, the power consumption for the TV is excellent for LCDs of the same size.
-Most importantly, 2006 NFL MVP Ladainian Tomlinson and Beyonce endorse Vizio.
Cons: -The picture is not as vibrant as some 1080p LCDs from Samsung or Sony, and I don't say that based on in-store viewings. In-store displays are set to appear bright and capture your attention under the fluorescent lights of the store.
However, you have to pay at least a 150-200 dollar premium for a similarly spec'd 37" TV set by those brands, and it would be difficult for nearly anyone to really see the difference.
-Vizio-endorsee Ladainian Tomlinson apparently watches his TV with his visored football helmet. Maybe his Vizio is way too bright.
Other Thoughts: I am glad to see Newegg starting to offer Vizio TV sets. I purchased this set in June 2009 from a certain discount department store which will remain nameless. Over the last few years, Vizio has consistently offered the best value for the money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RCP-32TU USB Car Charger with 2 USB Port at 1 Amp
Pros: Durable, can charge two iPhone 3Gs at once
Other Thoughts: My old belkin FM-Radio tuner had a usb port for charging also, but it made a strange high-pitched, wheezing sound when the phone/ipod would charge. At&t's standard car charger isn't bad, but the secondary USB port can't charge a second iPhone. Most people probably don't need to charge to iPhones at once in the car, but it comes in handy on long drives with the girlfriend.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Quiet, low power, no vibration, cool, reasonable price.
Cons: Not a con, but I wish SSDs were cheaper.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive to replace the stock 160 GB Hitachi that came in my MacBook Pro (June 2009). I liked the fact that the drive was quiet, cool, and low power, so I figured Apple chose the drive for specifically those reasons. I figured it made sense to stay in the same 5K500.B family of Travelstar drives if I all I really needed was the additional capacity. After reading other reviews of user experiences with the current crop of 7200 rpm laptop drives in the MacBook and MacBook Pros, the decision seemed simple. Almost two months later, I know that I made the best choice.READ FULL REVIEW
