Survived Europe and Back

Targus 17" XL Laptop Backpack - TXL617
Targus 17" XL Laptop Backpack - TXL617

Pros: This bag more than filled my need for a backpack to carry my 17" laptop and a weeks worth of clothing and traveling supplies. I was traveling Europe for more than four months solely with this bag. The stitching held up completely and the padding on the laptop pocket was quite sufficient. The pack expanded well for everything else I needed and it carried my 39lbs of dry cargo over eight different countries on my back through snow, sleet and rain. This backpack was definitely worth the money.

Cons: Its a large backpack, not exactly a con; however, it made using it as a carry-on onto airlines(especially budget airlines) difficult. But most newer model passenger aircraft had no problem fitting it into the overheads.

Overall Review: In general a great buy. The quality rivals that of military counterparts I have and I was very impressed with how well it held the weight to my back. I would recommend this bag to someone looking to do some serious hauling.

Worth the cost!

Saitek X52 Flight Control System
Saitek X52 Flight Control System

Pros: Easy installation, setup, very ergonomic and economical. The LED's are very bright but can be turned down with the included and comprehensive software suite, with it I reprogrammed the joystick to work flawlessly with Lock On, but with the software you could easily play any game with this, including FPS's. The calibration is perfect, no problems setting this up. I use it with sims such as Lock On, BF2, IL2, Pacific Fighters and the joystick really gives me an edge in multiplayer with Lock On and BF2.

Cons: The included software has a somewhat high learning curve, but past that no problems.
