Well worth the money

Brother MFC-L2750DW Wireless Compact All-in-One Monochrome Laser Printer with Duplex Copy & Scan
Brother MFC-L2750DW Wireless Compact All-in-One Monochrome Laser Printer with Duplex Copy & Scan

Pros: My household has, VERY, light printer usage. I shy away from inkjets, because they clog with lack of use. So far, this thing has been a champ. It wakes up, quickly, when i do request a print job. I love it being wireless, that is very convenient, since we don't have a single, non-mobile, device in the household. It even double-sided prints, effortlessly. I use it to scan, more than I do for printing, which it also does excellently.

Overall Review: I wasn't looking for a cheap printer. I was looking for a good, reliable printer, that exceeded my family's requirements, was hassle free, was wireless and would be an excellent investment. This printer has been all of that.

Most Critical Review

Disappointing, to say the least.

Pros: Well... it's free t.v. and I suppose you get what you pay for.

Cons: First of all, this lame beast is SLOW. It, probably, has a Pentium II processor, at best. The OS is erratic and unstable and to top it off, pretty much all of the "free t.v." sites are just about crippled from heavy user traffic and prolific usage of add media.

Overall Review: If you're looking to eliminate your t.v. bill, this will NOT be a good alternative. To enjoy it, properly, will end up paying Netflix, Hulu, Amzn Prime, etc, etc, to watch your movies and shows. The plus to this is, in the long run, that your monthly t.v. viewing WILL be reduced, but far from eliminated and you will be paying for exactly what you want to watch, not an exorbitant amount of money for a bunch of rubbish that you don't want.

Be cautious when purchasing "refurbished".

Pros: Nice phone. It's a great deal, when looking for something to occupy kids.

Cons: I bought two of these, for my grandsons. One is still working perfectly, one the battery has died after 5 months. If it was for me, personally, I would understand the whole "refurbished" thing but, try telling that to a 9 year old who's phone won't work, after a few months.

Overall Review: I did try to open this phone up, to replace the battery. Apparently, these phones aren't supposed to do that. Time to buy a new phone. I will look at the Samsungs, this time.

Perfect!

Pros: This device did exactly what it was supposed to. Mirrored my old drives so I could install my new ones without a glitch. If you put your new drive in, that you just copied, and it doesn't seem to work, just put your Windows CD in the drive when you boot up and off you go...

Cons: None. It did EXACTLY what it was supposed to.

A *MUST* have

Fallout 3 PC Game
Fallout 3 PC Game

Pros: This game is a absolute must have for those lucky enough to have experienced the original Fallout & Fallout 2 (I still have my Win 95 SE copy of Fallout 2 :) ), as well for people who have an affinity for single person RPGs. There is plenty of content to keep you busy for MANY hours and the V.A.T.S. combat system was well thought out and puts a unique perspective on the gameplay.

Cons: A few crash/freeze bugs and a some minor graphic flaws. As annoying as it may be, try to find another game if this caliber and tell me it doesn't have any bugs. Remember to save your game, frequently, and it reduces your frustration level when critical errors occurr.

Overall Review: Try not to power through the story-line quests. Take time to do side quests & explore the world. It will, significantly, increase your over-all gameplay time, give you a greater appreciation, not only for the game itself, but also what a great job the Bethsada team did creating this world. For total game emersion, I suggest a good pair of stereo headsets. Not only will it greatly enhance your game experience, it's great for blocking out the wife & kids. :D
