not bad

MSI Rainbow6 Vegas2 Bundled Game Gift
MSI Rainbow6 Vegas2 Bundled Game Gift

Pros: free with my MSI 9800GT video card. I get good fps with max settings on it. decent gameplay, not the best but not bad.

Cons: no one except german people are online to play multiplayer with :[

Overall Review: When i switch from playing this to Counter-Strike: Source, i get really good accuracy in css because there is a lot of recoil in r6v2 (at least more than cs)

Pros: Good software UI Fast Nice Great Huawei customer support through email

Cons: Can't get data / SIM card to work in Cricket USA Cell Phone Not Unlocked Too late for me to return bc I bought it in August (even though I barely ever used it)

Overall Review: If you have any concerns about getting your data to work make sure the phone you get is unlocked.

Works great so far, after a minor fix

Linksys E1200-RM Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n
Linksys E1200-RM Wireless-N Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g/n

Pros: . Steady & stable internet connection so far . I like the Linksys Connect software - easy to use and comes with a speed test as well as a few other simple features (you can view your history of tests too) . Upon installation the software automatically creates a separate guest-wifi network with a separate password for if friends are over (disable-able of course) . Works with Windows 10, which I'm using

Cons: . Did not work right out of the box: The installation CD / Linksys Connect software failed to set up the router at first. After digging into the problem a little bit I realized the router's firmware maybe had to be updated. To fix: I went to their support page for the router and down to downloads [http://www.linksys.com/us/support-article?articleNum=148523] while connected to a working internet connection. Saved the firmware file and plugged the ethernet cord from this new router directly into my PC. Disconnected from previous wifi connection and connected to this Linksys router via ethernet (Network Adapter Settings on Windows, you should know this). Then typed in 192.168.1.1 to my web browser bar and updated the firmware. It worked, instantly after that :) - A very easy fix although I suppose it should have come with the proper firmware installed. after the upgrade I ran the Linksys software again and abra kadabra alakazam

Overall Review: Bought this router refurbished since my old one used to drop out once I reached a certain bandwidth.. I've only had it for less than a day but so far so good! Full bars. Ah does it feel good to have stable internet again! Not sure about the range, I'm pretty close to my router using wireless.

Worked until I broke it

STEREN 255-262 12 ft Audio Patch Cable Male to Male

Pros: It played audio on my speakers while connected to my laptop, TV, iPod, and desktop. Served its purpose.

Cons: I broke it.

Overall Review: These were plugged into my speakers on the floor and I walked by, a little too closely, and knocked the connector out of the jack.. Dead.

Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX 0.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam

Pros: The video and sound quality for the build in camera and mic are excellent. The picture is not blurry at all (except for slightly blurred motions when RightLight is on).

Cons: The software that came with the webcam isn't the best, escpecially when using it for web applications (ex: Stickam, UStream.tv, Justin.tv, Blog.tv, etc.). When using the cam on stickam, privacy shade, video mute, microphone mute and other features in the software don't work. However, these are all fine when using MSN.

Overall Review: So far I've used the webcam on Stickam and MSN. Since the software that came with it isn't the best, I suggest downloading manycam at manycam.com. This has most of the features on the default program plus more (even though a lot of options on manycam are a bit childish).
