ALL in ONE

Bitdefender Total Security 2008  - 2 Year / 3 PC
Bitdefender Total Security 2008 - 2 Year / 3 PC

Pros: Antivirus, Firewall, Anti-spam, parental Controls

Cons: Anti-Spam bar for firefox, or Windows Mail vista, does not work, it does work in Outlook Express, so this is not a con to you XP users using Outlook Express for you mail program. Computer Load time is alot slower booting up than without this.

Overall Review: Probably the best all in one package out there that I have tried. The bootup time has decreased, which I find as the only draw back to this product. If you want security for your PC, and/or if you are looking for one to install on multiple PC's look no further.

Most Critical Review

Warrenty up, so is my card

HIS Radeon HD 6790 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity H679F1GD
HIS Radeon HD 6790 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity H679F1GD

Pros: Video playback was superb, most games play great, easy crossfire setup. While they worked the experience I had was great, wish I could have gave it 5 eggs. Tech support was prompt and american

Cons: Only lasted for the manufacturers warranty. Cards started freezing up my computer a day before Thanksgiving, after trying to find the problem, hoping for an easy fix, find out 3 days after warranty is up, these 2 cards both died. Called HIS tech support, and since it was just 3-4 days after my warranty was up, they wouldnt even bother with me.

Overall Review: Sad that these only lasted for the exact warranty of the cards. I find it hard to believe they both died about the same time, but it is what it is, and I guess I will just go to another manufacturer for my computer accessories. Would have given 5 eggs, but with their Tech support pushing me off the phone because I am 4 days late and the cards only lasted there exact warranty days, I could only give 2 eggs

Very Nice

EVGA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N753-TR
EVGA GeForce 8600 GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card 256-P2-N753-TR

Pros: High FPS, Nvidia, superb card, will explain more in Other thoughts

Cons: 256mb, will explain more in Other thoughts

Overall Review: I bought this card for my GF so while we are playing WOW, she could experience the game as I did with seeing the beauty of the artwork they put into the land. I have the ATI Radeon 2600 XT with 512mb of ram, with the Nvidia she got more FPS than I did, but the quality of her picture was still not as good as mine. For the quality of the picture, I matched her video settings duplicating mine, although her Picture was still unbelievable, my ATI actually put out better quality, which may be because my card has 512mb instead of the 256. The Nvidia still ran smoother. Although I am an ATI/AMD person, I would still consider the possibility of take a switch back to the Nvidia Video Card world

nice for the price

Rosewill 2 x 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Multimedia Stereo Headset - RH-001
Rosewill 2 x 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Multimedia Stereo Headset - RH-001

Pros: Price, sound quality

Cons: very low sound from the microphone

Overall Review: I will have to say these are a nice set of headphones, if all you mainly are going to be doing is listening and not talking. The microphone you have to scream into just to be heard, as the sound output from them is extremely low

Its a G9

Logitech G9 Black 9 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 3200 dpi Gaming Mouse
Logitech G9 Black 9 Buttons Tilt Wheel USB Wired Laser 3200 dpi Gaming Mouse

Pros: Fast, sensitivity settings, programmable, comes with weights and different clothing for your mouse, for grips,

Cons: Price, I cant believe Iactually paid $90 for a mouse. does not come with the programing program. download it at the logitech website.

Overall Review: After coming from a Logitech MX 1000, the big bulky mouse, to this littler mouse, I was impressed. It only took me about 2 days to get used to as I was used to using my whole hand on a mouse. As one reviewer said it is like a Claw Mouse, which is true. Programing the mouse is easy once you get the program from Logitech. The middle mouse button has its own settings, found on the bottom of the mouse, where if you click it off, the middle wheel will spin freely. Out of the box it comes with 3 default programed settings, switchable from another button on the bottom. Sensitivity is at your index finger, but out of the way enough where you will not tap it by accident. Overall with all the features it comes with, and the quality of it, it is well worth the price.

Actually Quiet

Seagate BarraCuda ES.2 ST3250310NS 250GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive
Seagate BarraCuda ES.2 ST3250310NS 250GB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Server HDD, 32MB cache, 250gb, SATA 3.0, Super Quiet, and Really fast

Cons: so quiet you cant tell it is really running, not sure if you would consider this a con.

Overall Review: Browsing inside of Vista, this hard drive does load folders, and programs fast, and yes I know part of it has to do with the CPU, and memory too. I upgraded from a Seagate baracuda 200gb ide drive with 8mb cache, and the page loading as increased sufficiently. Well worth every penny. I see myself buying another one of these, or maybe the 1TB or 750gb next.
