Rosewill RX355-U Aluminum 3.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great unit 01/24/2010

This review is from: Rosewill RX355-U Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB 2.0 External Enclosure

Pros: Works great. Runs VERY cool, adjustable fan speed (silent at low setting, very quiet even on highest setting). Didn't require drivers in XP. Quick foolproof installation, uses thumbscrews and slide-out tray. Very clever arrangement for powering fan. Fast read/write speeds: I averaged almost 50MB/s read on an old 20GB Maxtor drive.

Cons: Supplied USB cable is pretty short, maybe 2-3 feet. Oh well.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to buy at least one more for all the old IDE drives I no longer use.

5 out of 5 eggs Great game 12/24/2009

This review is from: Blue Dragon Xbox 360 Game

Pros: Very customizable character "classes" and skills allow you to make many different kinds of parties to suit your style. Very addictive leveling system, where not only does your character level but his class (which you can change at any time) levels separately. Lots of fun to play with this to get the best combination of stats at a given point in the game. Graphics are beautiful. Lots of things to search and lots of play time (game is 3 DVDs). This is probably one of the least repetitive turn-based RPGs I've played due to the ability to change up the character classes. Maybe less repetitive than Chrono Trigger (gasp)!

Cons: The boss-battle music, which thankfully is somewhat infrequent, is really bad. The first time I heard it I laughed out loud, after that, I rolled my eyes, and now I want to end my life a little bit more each time I hear it. It's really really cheesy faux-80s glam rock, and I think one of the game's programmers did the vocals. Also, the dialogue is a little Engrish, and can get tedious, but you can skip cutscenes with the start button. And as someone previously observed, Marumoru = Jar Jar Binks.

Other Thoughts: If you buy this game for under thirty or so bucks, it's worth it. I paid much less, and so I am very satisfied and pleasantly surprised. And I'm picky about RPGs.
