Most Favorable Review

Love this device!

Patriot Xporter Mini 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF8GMUSB
Patriot Xporter Mini 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model PSF8GMUSB

Pros: Gotta love the size. Rubber all around means it will survive the way I toss it around. Fast transfer. Tail end flashing light on read/write. Nice envy factor to friends who have bigger drives with less capacity.

Cons: It did NOT give me the ability to fly, teleport or telepathically speak to fish.

Overall Review: Not mentioned in specs but it is Vista Readyboost compatible (and YES....I did notice the speed boost when i had it in. Guess now i'll have to buy another to leave in all the time.)

Most Critical Review

DO NOT order products from this brand

Insten Black Replacement USB Data / Charging Cable compatible with Motorola RAZR2 V8 / V9 / V9m / Q9 / Q Global / ROKR E8 / Blackberry Storm 9500 / Curve 8900 / LG AX300 / AX830
Insten Black Replacement USB Data / Charging Cable compatible with Motorola RAZR2 V8 / V9 / V9m / Q9 / Q Global / ROKR E8 / Blackberry Storm 9500 / Curve 8900 / LG AX300 / AX830

Pros: None.

Cons: You are not buying this cable from Newegg. You are buying it THROUGH newegg from a 3rd party vendor. Whenver I order products from this mfr, the payment gets refused and holds up then ENTIRE order. This is not a review of the cable, it is a negative review of a 3rd party vendor who doesn't have their system running properly. Do NOT order any cables from this brand/vendor. I spent an hour on the phone with Newegg and more than an hour on the phone with paypal, and I still didn't get my cables. I had to resubmit my entire order without cables from this 3rd party vendor.

Solid shooter for Vita

Unit 13 PlayStation Vita
Unit 13 PlayStation Vita

Pros: Good missions. Excellnt physics. Good AI for the enemies. In addition to the 36 missions (all of which are replayable so you can level up another member of the Unit, each with their own skill set) there are also "High Value Target" missions and if you go online there is a downloadable "Daily" mission. Well done.

Cons: There are only a few maps, but they are large and different missions start you in different places so it doesnt feel as repetitive. Small con.

Overall Review: Try the free demo, I did. Was enough to make me want to buy it. Solid game

nice twists on whats basically a Diablo 3 clone

Dungeon Hunter Alliance PS Vita Games
Dungeon Hunter Alliance PS Vita Games

Pros: Plays and acts very much like Diablo. Extra points for original storyline. I like the way they worked both front and rear touchscreens into the gameplay. Graphics are top notch. I would recommend this to any fan of hack & slash games.

Cons: no worse than any other game of its type which means it can get a tad repetitive.

Price too high...too many slowdowns

Symantec Norton Internet Security 2008
Symantec Norton Internet Security 2008

Pros: Im at a loss for words

Cons: The king is dead. For the first time in 10 years I am recommending something other than norton to my customers. Price is much higher than last year. Systems with 512mb ram or less suffer way too much of a slowdown. Detection and removal is just not what it once was. You'd think the virus writers got a hold of norton's source code and just slip right around it.

Overall Review: I run a PC repair shop. Customers with valid norton installs come in infected to heck. I have to take out norton, put in a competing product that works to clean. I've lost all faith in Symantec's security products. I can even name a couple of totally free products (tho i wont do so here) that do a better job and put less drag on systems. Big wag of my finger to you norton. Here's an idea...how about a consumer version of the corporate symantec antivirus interface?

Solid buy

WD Elements 250GB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDE1U2500N
WD Elements 250GB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDE1U2500N

Pros: While other reviewers listed that it comes preformatted fat32 as a con, i see it as a pro, in that linux (Knoppix etc.) can easily write to it. Nice rubber casings around it.

Cons: Wish the box said the words Western Digital on it rather than 'powered by WD'. But hey, it IS a western digital drive inside.

Overall Review: Hey, if fat32 is not your thing, windows can reformat easily enough.
