Pros: Excellent Reception. Great Accuracy and fast. I had the nuvi 200 previously and recently switched to this. You can tell that this is significantly faster in calculations/recalculations. The TTS is really nice and convenient and lets you keep your eyes on the road. Although I'm not too fond of the American English voices that are included. The guy sounds like the old Mac voice and the woman just sounds angry. The speed limits displayed on the map is almost dead on accurate even on roads that changes the speed limit every few miles...which I found to be the most impressive thing on this nuvi.
Overall Review: You can't go wrong with Garmin both in quality and reliability.
Only local channels through cable
Pros: not many.
Cons: It only picks ups up local channels through cable. I got spotty reception at best using the antenna. Once I connected it to the cable I was able to pick up all the local channels clearly. However, this device was not detected as a video capture device ANYWHERE including but not limited to WMC. So the only way I got this thing to work is through the software that they provided. Also if you have vista 64 then you will need to get another driver from the kworld website. The standard driver provided in the cd does not work. It didn't pick up clear QAM channels either. All of them appeared as a Locked symbol.
Overall Review: I wouldn't recommend this. I already RMAed the thing. I'll probably get something else later next year.
Pros: Works really well. Bought this for my Asus netbook 1015PX. This significantly increased boot time and overall speed of the netbook to were it is comparable to a laptop of much higher specification. Great Product. I have 3 of these and they all work very very well. I have not had any issues with any of these.
Overall Review: Depending on the price, this is a very good product. I bought this at around $60 ($80 with a $30 MIR) and for that price it is a steal.
works and works well
Pros: Good sound quality. Good Microphone output. Like the USB connection. Comfortable earpieces. I like the fact that it goes behind the head and not over it so that it does not mess up my hair.
Cons: Tends to hurt my left ear if I wear them for an extended period of time. I have glasses on so that probably makes it worse. I do have a smaller head.
Overall Review: for the price I paid for this one $9.99 (with a $20 MIR), i can't complain. it works well and the sound quality is excellent and microphone out works really we. very satisfied with the product.
great for the price
Pros: Price. For $109 you can't go wrong with this monitor. Seems to be a decent and capable monitor with lots of settings. You can choose to have bright display or conserve energy with a low brightness/contract display based on preset profiles. There is not a lot of shiny bevel that you see on some monitors which is nice. this monitor seems HUGE when compared to the 19" widescreen that I had. I was lucky not to have any dead/stuck pixels.
Cons: The stand seems a little weak. You can not adjust the stand (not that i can see anyways). So you can't move it up or down. You can only change the angel of the monitor and thats about it. The color quality does not seem the best for this monitor but again for $109 you aren't going to get any better. No LED backlight with this monitor either.
Overall Review: Overall for $109 it is a solid buy. For $150 or higher, I would look elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, I think the monitor is solid, but with the image quality and the lack of adjustment functionality for this monitor, it really doesn't stand up to the others you might be able to get at the $150 price range (+/- $10-$15).
Pros: Great product. You can tell its well made and solid. It is not a flimsy case. I got this for $39.99 after MIR so for this price I can't really complain at all. The two front removable fans are a GREAT touch. You can access your hard drive bays from the front directly. This case has the capacity for 6 case fans. 2 front, 1 bottom, 2 top, 1 back with 2 installed (front and back). The case is fully colored through out. I have a cooler master where the side bends easily. This one is solid and no issues. Product also has a 2 year warranty which is also good just in case.
Cons: does not have mesh at the top and the holes are pretty big so dust might get in. It has mesh pretty much everywhere else.
Overall Review: The only differences between this and the 410 Elite are 1) Elite has a "window" 2) Elite has 2 front fans rather than 1 front fan. 3) The front mic/headphone jack is labeled. To me this wasn't enough of a difference to spend more dollars on it (the 410 elite was $90).
