Samsung 64GB EVO microSDXC UHS-I/U1 Class 10 Memory Card with Adapter (MB-MP64DA/AM)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Was working nicely until my Samsung phone stopped recognizing it.

Cons: No longer recognized by my desktop computer after 5 months of use in my phone. Unable to format. I guess it's a roll of the dice with flash memory these days...

5 out of 5 eggs Great Speakers, Nice Value 08/15/2006

This review is from: Logitech Z-5500 505 Watts 5.1 Digital Speaker System

Pros: Very nice value. Nice sub. Control panel has nice features. Speakers look nice. Optical input is sweet. I am using it with my PS2 and it sounds awesome. BF2 sounds sweet with my Audigy 2 ZS sound card, as do my other games. They give you plenty of cord length for the rear speakers.

Cons: Console plugs into the sub and the cable is only 3 feet long.

Other Thoughts: Does not come with an optical cable. Definitely worth it to get one if you can make use of it. Also, as others have said, it would be wise to get take the time to physically listen to the speakers if you can before making a decision. In my humble opinion though, the price is justified.

Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2

4 out of 5 eggs All depends on the user... 08/15/2006

This review is from: Microsoft Windows XP Professional With SP2

Pros: XP Pro is a nice OS in my opinion and I have not had any real problems with it.

There a a huge number of ways you can tweak it for performance to get it running really nicely (if you know how to).

Good OS for general and advanced users.

OEM version is nice and cheap.

Cons: It's no secret that it has security flaws...I lowered my rating to 4 just for that.

Other Thoughts: As long as you take care of your computer XP will run fine.

Yes, it is Microsoft's responsibility to take care of their customers but people need to get educated about spyware and malware threats. Just because it has some security problems doesn't mean that it is entirely Microsoft's fault that people have problems with it.

I have an old Western Digital hard drive that came with a Sony VAIO I got about 4 or 5 years ago (this was before I started building my own machines) and I have reformatted it numerous times with XP. Both the hard drive and XP performed fine each time and are running smoothly to this day.

Also, if you do get a new mobo and/or reformat all you need to do is call Windows to activate your same copy on your new hardware and they will be happy to oblige. I've never had problems with it. In fact, I just finished a new Opty build and was able to activate my copy over the internet.

If you need a real workhorse then you should be running Linux.
