Most Favorable Review

Definatly worth it!

EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates
EDIMAX EW-7128G Wireless Card IEEE 802.11b/g PCI Up to 54Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Right off the bat I noticed a huge improvement going from a USB wireless adapter. Driver disk is a nice utility, just took me a second to find the actual driver link off of the installer. Its a nice setup, it asks you if you want to use the supplied software or windows wireless zero. It also asks you if you want the card to work in performance mode or a wireless turbo mode. Not sure if it would make a huge difference but with my problem I had before I chose wireless mode since my adapter was so bad at picking up a signal.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall Review: My HTPC is in the family room inside of a wood entertainment center. I used the have the USB adapter plugged into a USB extension cable and had the adapter sitting on top of the center. I could hardly pick up my wireless which was down the hall and around a corner in my computer office. I would find my connection and my neighbors connection with low signals. As soon as I had everything installed with this card I found mine at 5 bars along with the neighbors and 2 others that I never saw previously. I like that it has a cabled antenna so I can place that on top of my entertainment center.

DIGITAL FOX DT-10D Silver Mini Pocket Tripod
DIGITAL FOX DT-10D Silver Mini Pocket Tripod

Pros: Its a compact tripod.... not much else to say. It works fine with my digital camera.

Cons: It cant handle a miniDV digital camcorder that well. Unless you have a good surface to place it on.

Overall Review: What can I say, the thing was pretty much free comboed with my targas battery.

Great Open world racing

Midnight Club: Los Angeles Xbox 360 Game
Midnight Club: Los Angeles Xbox 360 Game

Pros: Awesome graphics, great handling non linear gameplay. The missions do not have to be finished in order like someone else mentioned. AI has been improved by an update. It is no longer as hard as everyone was crying about. Online is on the money. No lag that I have seen except for when someone proposes a race (not during) it will seem like it has frozen for 1 second. Car customization is one of the best ones so far. The is an arcade racer, not a sim. A plus in my book.

Cons: None really.

Overall Review: Only problem I have had with this game is the auto save feature when coming out of the garage. You will see save graphic come up, but if you forget about it when coming out of the garage and you turn your system off it will corrupt the save game file. Kind of a fault of both user and developer since there is no real warning of when the saving was being done.

First Impression... junk

LEGACY 4.7GB 8X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model R8X100CB
LEGACY 4.7GB 8X DVD-R 100 Packs Spindle Disc Model R8X100CB

Pros: Price...

Cons: I have only had this for about a month so far and in the first 7 discs made, 4 of them have been coasters. I got them since alot of people had good reviews on them... live and learn.

Overall Review: Going back to buying Ridata's. In the past I had purchased a 100 stack on 2 seperate occasions and in those 200 discs I had probably 6 coasters in total.

Same as AMS

Pros: Works great.

Cons: No issues so far.

Overall Review: To the last reviewer, the reason this has the same fan setup is because it is the same tray as the AMS, probably bought from AMS so I like the AMS more cause of the asthetics of the case.
