Weller SP40LK Medium Duty Soldering Iron Kit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Looks good 04/09/2015

This review is from: Weller SP40LK Medium Duty Soldering Iron Kit

Pros: Comes in a nice sealed plastic package -you know, the one you need scissors to cut open, and when you do, there is no doubt it has been removed from the package.

Cons: No Comment -see "Other Thoughts"

Other Thoughts: The item looks good, and I'm sure it can get the job done, but you might be better off trying to get it either direct from Newegg, or another vendor. I purchased this through a vendor Newegg has listed and the service was terrible. I can't take it out on this device, but from the looks of it, it seems more than capable of getting the job done, although the price seems higher than it should be.

SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel Grandia Series SST-GD08B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought the case based on the pictures, price, and ability to place multiple sized boards in it. It is a well laid out case design that gives plenty of room to place big video cards in it, and has a lot of space for HDDs. The main drive (SSD, or HDD) can be mounted in a side slot to keep it separated (logically) from the storage drives -nice touch.

Cons: None, but see other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: While it can take on the big components, it is a very large case. I have a DVD/VCR player, and a DVD stand alone burner stacked on top of each other next to this case, and the case is about an inch taller. Yes, it is replacing them, and can do so much more, I was just hoping that Moore's Law would magically reduce the size of all of my components.

Because the case is large I wanted to give the rating 4 eggs -but the inside has so much room for drives, I have to stick with 5 eggs.

5 out of 5 eggs Adjusting 06/30/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 32-bit

Pros: After the dust settled, and the update to 8.1 has been released, the operating system flows quite nicely. Finding out how things are laid out begins to make sense, and very little adjustment is needed to become a power user.

Cons: Wish there was a tutorial that helped explain the location of some of the "needed" components that an advanced user typically uses -but I guess that would take away some of the fun of locating some of the new features.

Other Thoughts: I'm not a MS fanboy, but, it's about time Microsoft designed a user-friendly experience with a cross platform design/purpose. Makes the OS X and iOS look a little silly.
