Pros: Low price. Works well for listening to music and even watching video.
Cons: Comes with a proprietary cord for charging and transfering files. This is the only reason I knocked off two eggs. I lost this cord a few weeks ago and now I cannot use it anymore. I am guessing that I must order a new cord from Sansa but that is stupid. Why didnt they just use a standard mini usb or other such common cord. Now this unit is nothing more than a paper weight and I refuse to "reward" this company with more money for their evil decision to use a proprietary cord. I am sick of these kinds of practices designed to take more money from people without giving them anything for it.
Pros: Lots of USB ports, AM3 support, PCI-E 2.0, good bios options. Went together and worked right out of the box with Win7x64. I got this board to upgrade my X2 5400 to a PhenomII 955 and still use the same DDR2-800 memory otherwise I would have gone for something with DDR3. No onboard videocard to clutter things up.
Cons: Didn't come with a I/O shield backplate though I did buy an open box item. Still that should have been included.
Overall Review: Get this board if you have some DDR2 memory otherwise get one that has DDR3.
Pros: This game is my favorite. The controls are relatively easy to use and pull off moves. The story mode is fun. Playing online is the best feature once you beat the computer enough.
Cons: Story mode is kind of short. Fatalities are censored and toned down for the kiddies. Loading times are a bit long between matches or continues.
Overall Review: Id recommend this game if you are looking for a good fighting game and like the DC universe.
Pros: This card is powerful enough to play the latest games on high resolution with high detail (except Crysis). I use a wide screen 22" monitor and run my games at 1680x1050 usually. Great performance.
Cons: Huge card needs room. Runs a little hot but not over the 80s. Doesnt run crysis on high detail very well, I have to set it to medium to get a room framerate.
I bought this card back in Feb 2008 and now it is half the price I paid for it. :(
Overall Review: There are better cards for 30 - 40 dollars more now.
Pros: Good travel camera, was smaller than I thought. Fairly good picture quality. Does video with sound. Isnt complicated to use. Comes with rechargable batteries and charger. Good price.
Cons: Comes with a separate cord for getting the pictures onto the computer, always lose these things. Easy to take a blurry picture unless you hold very still.
Overall Review: Cons aside its a good camera, worth the money
Pros: Widescreen, extra viewing area, 22". High resolution, crisp and clear display. 2ms response time. Worth the price for what you get.
Cons: The stand is a little bit flimsy and is fixed so you cannot tilt/raise the screen. No DVI cord included. Also it seems to have some trouble displaying pure black, mostly noticable within games, there are horrizontal lines that are slightly visible. Not a big deal to me but lessens the quality in my opinion.
Overall Review: This is a great monitor for most people and a very good price for the size.
