Most Favorable Review

Nice, really nice.

AOC e2752Vh 27" 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor
AOC e2752Vh 27" 1920 x 1080 60 Hz D-Sub, DVI, HDMI Built-in Speakers LCD Monitor

Pros: Love the upgrade, went from a 21 to 23 before and didn't notice. Now i never have to lean forward even when working on pixel art for games. VESA mount. Mean while though, sturdy base, shakes a little when messing with the buttons but its a wide screen ya kno? On the other hand the weight makes tilting easy. Colors look good out of the box, have not felt the need to adjust them in the slightest. Got it for 200 bones on a shell shocker, and won't be regretting it soon.

Cons: Menu is hard to navigate, but then again good luck finding one that's not. The DVI port doesn't work, which stinks but I don't feel like paying for shipping, HMDI works just fine which I probably would use anyways once I mount it on the wall. Bezel's a little fat too. Don't count on the speakers for much, but I guess that's one less thing to take if yo're a LAN goer.

Overall Review: My original 21" was an AOC, and I am still a satisfied customer, just had to knock an egg off cause of the DVI port not working.

New Favorite Zelda!

Nintendo 3DS
Nintendo 3DS

Pros: Amazing revival of an already great game! Brought back everything that was good about LTTP and made it feel fresh. The weapons are satisfying, killing enemies feels good, solving puzzles makes you feel smart, this game is so well put together! It was the right amount of challenge, looks, and plain old fun. I'm not exagerating when i say that as I was playing this game it steadily rose through my all time fave ranks. In fact one of the things that sealed the deal was when I started playing with my gaming head set and heard the amazing orchestral sound track. It's just one surprise after another with ALBW, if you are a Zelda fan, especially if you liked LTTP and you were receptive to the new art direction brought about by Wind Waker, this will be one of your new favorites, I guarantee it.

Cons: It's not 10x longer, I didn't want it to end! But once the gf is done with it I'll dive back into hard mode!

Overall Review: Everything just feels fresh. New inventory system, new character and world design, new method of level progression. Oh and once you turn in your first set of those freaking adorable MaiMais and upgrade your bow, you will also be sold on this game for life.

Sweet shades

Timberland 7074 Semi Wire-Rim Sunglasses
Timberland 7074 Semi Wire-Rim Sunglasses

Pros: Stylin, definitely look beeter than the publix/walgreens foster grants I'm always rockin! Got them for about $18 on some mother's day deal! Remind me of an old name brand pair i used to own (and lost)!

Cons: None

Overall Review: I've got a medium-large head for reference I suppose, and they fit very comfortably. Newegg, no matter what I order I'm never unsatisfied!

Sweet ruler!

Westcott 10417 Stainless Steel Ruler w/Cork Back and Hang Hole, 18", Silver
Westcott 10417 Stainless Steel Ruler w/Cork Back and Hang Hole, 18", Silver

Pros: Nice 18" ruler, if you find yourself measuring stuff more than once a month that's larder than a foot, say for art or different hobbies get this, its cheap and more accurate.

Cons: A little flimsier than rulers I'm used to even though construction looks good, I guess that's what you get as the length increases and it's still just aluminum and cork.

Overall Review: It came in an enormous box, the thing was about 12"x24"x16" and was packed with bubble wrap. Kind of silly for just a ruler :P

Good

Minecraft Magnet Set
Minecraft Magnet Set

Pros: 2 Pages of magnets, lots of different types! Good safe packaging

Cons: Needs a Steve head!

Overall Review: Consider getting 2 sets if you plan on having more than 1 complex scene at a time :P Also, don't be too hasty taking the sheet apart, you might mess one of them up like I did and crumple a corner..

Awesome

Aluminum 9-LED Flashlights with Batteries (Pack of 6)
Aluminum 9-LED Flashlights with Batteries (Pack of 6)

Pros: Great pack of little flashlights, had enough for everywhere I'd need one and and more! 1 for the car! 1 for the toolbox! 1 for work! 1 to carry around! 1 for the gf! and 1 for dad! You'll never be with out a flashlight again! Plus it's bright as hell! And batteries for all 6! That's 18 AAA's you wouldn't have to buy on top of that! Exclamation points!!!!

Cons: Feels like after a while in inclement weather, just screwing the battery cap off and on would crack it. Just out of the packaging it already feels almost like brittle plastic. Oh and one of them was dinged around the front a little.

Overall Review: $10 for 6 bright as heck flashlights? Plus batteries and lanyards for each to boot? Go for it!
