Pros: These are comfortable and water resistant. They don't sound like my Audio-Technics. They also don't cost as much as the ATs and they won't melt in the rain like the ATs. I am very very happy with my purchase.
Cons: They are Bluetooth and the quality of the sound is Bluetooth. Not a Con as much as an observation. I haven't used a Bluetooth product yet. I hope I don't develop a brain tumor.
Overall Review: I would recommend it and I would buy it again. FREE additional 2 years on the warranty just for registering on the website.
Pros: Just added an older Netgear wireless router and it works with the modem perfectly.
Cons: The modem does get a little warm.
Pros: Got this for my nephew the year before he started kindergarten and he loves it.
Cons: The graphics are nothing to write home about.
Pros: Plug and Play. Simply use the controls for whatever application you are using to select high def and it executes high def quickly and flawlessly. No moving parts.
Cons: Unable to adjust tilt.
Overall Review: I didn't test the microphone. I plugged in the camera then installed the software and that is backward. It fixed up quickly though. Just unplug, uninstall, install, plug in camera.
Pros: I bought the first issue of this machine 2 years ago for my niece. That machine runs Vista. It is an awesome machine when paired with a video card (which brings me to cons).
Cons: Onboard video is weak. In my niece's machine I put a GT 240 by XFX. This machine runs Windows 7 so I would go with this part: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121426
Overall Review: With a discrete video card added this machine is quite powerful. Especially considering its cost.
Pros: Installed easily, seems to have a lot of different games for learning.
Cons: None really. The graphics are not too impressive but it is educational software.
Overall Review: Running on Vista 32-bit without issue.
Pros: Installed in seconds on a Vista Premium 32-bit machine with no problems. The graphics are not very advanced but it is for a pre-schooler. No CD means no worries about losing the disc.
Cons: None were apparent.
Overall Review: The machine my nephew uses is ALWAYS logged on as Administrator. Maybe that is why the installation went so smoothly.
Pros: No separate power needed. Can run Folding @ Home. Raised Vista W.E.I. on graphics from 3.0 to 5.8 (with XFX driver disc, 5.7 with nvidia WHQL newest driver).
Cons: Even on Medium settings at 1,024 X 768, the Cryostasis Tech Demo had minimum FPS of 13.
Overall Review: It is quiet and other than the tech demo has a flawless, fluid picture.
Pros: No external power supply required. Went from 2-3 bars signal strength and frequent dropped connection to 4-5 bars, no drops.
Cons: It took awhile to figure out the best position for the antenna to be in.
Overall Review: It is worth the price.
Pros: It works for reading DVDs quite well.
Cons: None that I have seen yet but I haven't tried to write a DVD yet.
Overall Review: SATA is the only way to go. No more bothering with Master/Slave/Cable Select!
Pros: Healthy 6MB cache, foolproof insertion design, heatsink and fan went on in a snap. Where my 2.8Ghz Windsor would break a sweat displaying the current work project for Folding @ home (60% CPU usage when viewing display); this Deneb core only goes to 22%!
Cons: It uses more power than the Windsor core did.
Overall Review: It doesn't seem to run hotter than my Windsor did.
Pros: 3 way SLI, uses the less expensive DDR2 memory, runs cooler than my M2N -E 570 Ultra did. 6 USB in the back with plugs on the board for USB built into the case.
Cons: I think it is going to use more power than the 570 Ultra did.
Overall Review: I haven't tried Express Gate yet but the Q connector was quite convenient for my large fingers.
Pros: The case is DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! The all aluminum design with a fan in the front, back and on the side keeps my video card 14C cooler than in my Enermax Chakra. The mounting bracket for the hard drive in front of the intake fan is pure genius.
Cons: I had a little difficulty getting the screws into the motherboard standoffs but I think that was more due to me being tired when assembling it and my large fingers.
Overall Review: Fingerprint magnet.
Pros: After it is done updating, it works perfectly. Superfetch works better than XP's Prefetch does. Sidebar is fun. Installs and runs Folding @ Home in one go.
Cons: For some reason what is indicated as 90% signal strength/90% link quality of wireless signal in XP is 50/85 in Vista. The exact same adapter with its own driver disk used on both machines. Driver rated for both OS.
Overall Review: Uses 650MB of RAM at startup vs. 202 with XP. running: AMD 5600+ 2.8Ghz Windsor core, 2GB of 800Mhz RAM, 750GB WD Scorpio HD (32MB cache), 8800GT 512MB, Asus dvd drive. Entire system rates 5.9 except the CPU is 5.3. Device Manager thinks both drives are SCSI, LOL.
Pros: It works as advertised. Got a ZT Systems Vista machine and this stick allows the memory to run at 800Mhz (DDR) in addition to doubling the quantity of RAM. The machine is very quick.
Pros: It works great. Can either use the included disc driver or the native XP driver. Equally fast with either one.
Cons: It has a Vista driver (since Vista doesn't natively). However, once installed, Vista tried to install its own driver. More of a Vista problem than with the adapter. It draws 500mA (so it gets a little warm)
Overall Review: MUCH better than PCI card solutions I have used in the past. I have actually bought 3 of these. One for myself, one for my roommate's 6 year old laptop (his speed and network stability went up EXPONENTIALLY) and on my niece's Vista machine. The Pros MUCH outweigh the Cons.
Pros: It turns out that the mouse has issues when plugged in at the same time as a Wacom tablet. Simply unplugged the Wacom and mouse became flawless.
Cons: none anymore :)
Overall Review: I had never plugged in 2 input devices at the same time.
Pros: Plug and Play, can successfully replace the mouse in IE, Firefox and MS Paint. Doesn't use batteries.
Overall Review: I got this for my niece and she used it in Paint. She likes it.
Pros: Wireless, laser, programmable. Very comfortable. Works through a thick wood table. USB
Cons: Seems to have difficulty if using near a CRT monitor; that may have more to do with the monitor leaking signal (it is pretty old). That is why I gave it 4 eggs. I expected a $50 mouse to have zero issues.
Overall Review: Newegg rox!
Pros: It has no noticeable bloatware, a Thermaltake CPU cooler, and is activated out of the box. Even though it is an older CPU, supports emulation (XP mode). Onboard sound codec supports 3d virtualization over headphones.
Cons: The USB connectors are a tad close but that is MSI's fault. The PSU is lackluster. The memory doesn't run in DDR (it is a single stick).
Overall Review: Mine arrived with the 6150SE chipset and a 256MB video RAM upper limit setting. Aero interface looks great on a Viewsonic Graphics series CRT monitor.
Pros: I did lots and lots of research. Listened to Sonys, Sennheisers and these. With an X-Fi Fatal1ty Gamer sound card, you cannot go wrong! For games just set the card on CMSS 3-d and speaker setting to 'headphone' and your set. The realism in games leaves one speechless. You have not heard music until through these. The previous post about mp3 quality below 192kbps is no joke. You will hear tics, pops, mistakes in music that you did not know existed.
Cons: are hopefully in jail, LOL. jk. No Cons. They are large but I have a big noggin so it is all good.
Overall Review: AMD 5600+ dual core, X-Fi gamer card with 64MB of X-RAM, 2GB of DDR2-800mhz RAM, these headphones. Games aren't quite perfect yet as I run a 256MB 7950GT video card that is being upgraded to an 8800 GT with economic stimulus check.
Pros: I have had the card for 3 months now and have experienced NONE of the Creative=based issues. I have an nVidia 570 Ultra motherboard with an Ultra brand 500 watt PSU. I installed the minimal drivers, then used microsoft windows update. That is all one needs for any game out at this time.
Cons: It wasn't free. The Mode switch is a little annoying.
