Pros: Um... it works and its a pretty nice picture but...
Cons: Seems to have problems on the refresh rate or fps when movie does rotation, as little as 180 deg. Haven't done the research yet to see if its fixable but I'd really prefer to take it out of the box, connect power and HDMI and enjoy, not mess around with it for days!
Overall Review: The fan is also quite noisy compared to other projectors I've owned or used.
Pros: Work great with a Optoma HD26 projector... just need to realize you have to turn them on differently for an Optima - hold the button down longer until the light flashes.
Cons: None so far
Pros: Pioneer rcvr. with all the bells n whistles for a decent price. Astounding when in a 5.1 or 7.1 setup! Gives that nice house shaking base thump with ease :-)
Cons: Connected a couple Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" and it seems to lack "warmth" on a simple 2 speaker stereo setup (I swapped out some old ones I know have warmth with any stereo and it was still to "cold" sounding). Does much better (as in day and night difference!) if using at least a 5.1 setup, but I wanted to us the stereo setup 75% of the time... Some of us still like the nice simple stereo sound while enjoying the ole vinyls.
Pros: Great low side of the high end CPU's, great sound, video, lighted keyboard, its thin and its a Toshiba.
Cons: No "easy pull" battery... its hard installed, and Windows 8 - which; BTW, is why you need an easy pull battery, for when Windows locks up... which it has done on me already after only turning it on a few times now!
Ahhh, thank you for Ubuntu :-)
Overall Review: All in all a great laptop at a great price.
Pros: One of the best cost/benefit ratios out there currently.
Cons: It really doesn't seem to be as fast as I expected for having dedicated vid??
Overall Review: My own fault since I was zoning in on the speed details to much but it would be nice to have some of the simple things like back-lighted keyboard, manual volume control, manual wireless on/off switch, fingerprint reader... I wish Newegg would add some of these simple but handy items to their search criteria??
Pros: Sale price is excellent for a tough cam.
***Takes a standard SD card instead of the proprietary Olympus mem card!!!***
Cons: A little heavy and I cant decide if I like the different menu design yet. Other than that none.
Overall Review: A big improvement over last years model which the major drawback was when you had the settings on "automatic" or "easy"... or what ever you want to call it?? It would take forever to choose the right settings and focus before taking the shot which was very annoying when you wanted to shoot something quickly.
Also a big improvement in the battery/memory door which now not only has a better latch but is also lockable!
Pros: Ok price for a non-telescoping lens (telescoping lens cameras always eventually get stuck and break!), waterproof cam.
Cons: This camera is pretty "cheap", you can feel it in the buttons and case. Plus, no cover for the lens will eventually be a major (scratch/replacement) problem.
Overall Review: Still a decent deal for a young teenager... just need to figure out a solution for the exposed lens???
The one other draw back of Olympus cameras is the somewhat non-standard memory card.
Pros: Not much - price??
Cons: Doesn't seem to be doing to well with my Intel core2 T5600 1.83GHz Fujitsu lifebook, 32 bit. As a matter of fact my Win experience index went down and I had less memory in it before this! (speed was the same)
Overall Review: Should have spent the extra $10 bucks for mem I know would have performed better
Pros: Precise and good distance - small usb reciever.
Cons: Button sensitivity goes bad...
Overall Review: I have owned 3 over a 3-4 year period (2 bought @ the same time) and all of them have eventually had sensitivity problems in the buttons - treats a single click like it was a double. This is after a year or so of almost daily (at least 4 hours a day) use.
Not to bad but at the price there charging I would like a longer lasting product. Went with another brand this time...
Pros: Works great, easy to use software and video conversion.
Cons: None - locked up and had to reset once.
Overall Review: Survivng a 14 year old for 3 months so far and doing fine - lol.
Pros: Smooth, accurate, good distance, good battery life...
Overall Review: I usualy dont rate anything 5 stars but I've had 2 of these for over a year now and both are amazing - no problems what so ever!
Pros: SD expansion slot! - Apple will come up with that on later models so you can buy more - its all about the marketing huh.
Strong shell, easy to use and navigate menus, easy to learn and use software.
Cons: None so far but a TV out would be a nice addition...
Pros: Works as it should.
Cons: Concerned about having to buy a pricey lamp after every 78 hours. There weren't even any harsh environments - ran it in a nice cool basement home theater 100% of the time...
Pros: Good solid zipper and handles, overall craftmanship is decient. Does just whats needed from point A to B. Padded just enough for envirnments I can control.
Cons: Would caution taking on airplanes and such, where you cant control the environment.
Pros: Works without any flaws so far...
Cons: On/off switch is in back - makes it hard to reach, bottom edge is a little sharp, fans are fairly noisy (not sure this can be improved a whole lot?)
Pros: Long USB cord.
Cons: Not only DOA but - ah, it's a microsoft product that wont work with a microsoft product. You have to go download software for Vista and the software for vista isn't there - DOH!
Overall Review: Some cheap device I bought from the local mart has been working fine for over a year with no software to load and at very long distances - well huh?
Pros: I may be cheap but this is the best mouse I've ever used, wireless or wired!
Very compact - including the USB stick which is important with a laptop. Very precise, batteries last a long time, works on any dry - lol (probably wet too!) surface.
Cons: Price - I hate rebates/buying ploys/scams whatever you want to call em. 10 bucks is not worth it but the mouse is worth at least $37 anyway. So if you like jumpin through the hoops then I salute ya "bud man"!
Pros: Small, simple to use and set up.
Cons: Not too bad so far. I dont give anything an excelent rating unless it pretty much walks on water.
Overall Review: Using with one W2K machine and one Linux Ubuntu 6.10 Gnome. Had to plug in old PS2 KB and mouse to get Windows machine logged on then it neeeded to instal drivers and reboot 4 times (seriously, no joke!!)
The Linux machine came up and recognized everything, USB and all, quickly and perfectly. No driver installing, rebooting, etc.
Pros: Altec Lansing - a good sound product that has never let me down. Portability, price and accessories are great.
Cons: Sound/volume isn't quite what expected and have previously experienced in the past.
Overall Review: Will work just fine for what was intended - taking out to the hot tub and simple small room background music.
Pros: Small and USB
Cons: It could never find the router or any others in the neighborhood (my other wireless devices find about 5 routers in the area immediately as soon as they were installed). All settings were done the same as my other successful wireless devices.
SOFTWARE is very bad, sometimes it would open then close immediately.
Overall Review: Tried on 2 different desktop computers running W2K. Maybe WXP works better??
