Pros: Getting a few spaced plugs, but not all, means it fits everything I need it to without taking up a bunch of extra space. My apartment has had a lightning strike that luckily only took out the cable box. Hoping the surge protection is enough to protect my HTPC, TV, A/V receiver, and gaming consoles in the future.
Cons: The angled plug is a feature, but it happens to go right when I would prefer it went left. A rotating plug would be nice. Nit picky. Everything else makes it a great 11 outlet surge protector, and now my home theater has enough plugs.
Other Thoughts: I paid $15 and couldn't be happier.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Everki Black 18.4" Titan Checkpoint Friendly Laptop Backpack Model EKP120
Pros: The size is the most obvious plus. I purchased this because I lug around a 6" binder that is completely full of paper and broke my last normal backpack. It fits in one of the large pockets just fine.
The number of pockets that are spread out over the various zipper sleeves are more than anyone will be able to fill.
It is very comfortable to wear when the straps are properly adjusted, and the chest strap is an added bonus. Even with 40+ lbs I barely notice I'm wearing it.
One of the primary reasons I went with this backpack versus others is that it said it can hold larger laptops. Well that's an understatement. I have an 18" class laptop that looks puny when placed in the proper sleeve. I could easily fit something 20"+ in here comfortably and still close the velcro strap. The back support/airflow channels provide great protection for the laptop as well.
It is also very stylish. There is a through-hole that allows you to keep an mp3 player in the top pocket and feed the cord through to listen while the player is tucked away. I don't wear it on a regular enough basis to use this feature, but I thought it was nifty none-the-less. A hiker or traveler might enjoy this feature.
Cons: Being big does have the drawback of being big. It can hold a ton of stuff, but it's a hulk of a backpack. Picture a normal sized one and then add another 6 inches to the bottom. I'm a 6'0" man and it rests on the top of my gluts when properly worn. It also sticks out in such a way that I am unable to walk through a standard doorway sideways.
Other Thoughts: I believe negative reviews usually tell you the story better than positive ones, but I have no serious complaints with this product to share. It's expensive, but if you need a seriously large backpack that looks stylish then it is well worth the cost.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RC-6-HDM-MM-BK-3 6 ft. Black High Speed HDMI Cable M-M
Pros: It does everything it's supposed to do.
Cons: I've also got rosewill brand HDMI cables with the swivel end, and it's a nifty feature. The price of these made me buy 2 extra that I don't really need right now. The swivel is nice for a cleaner look, but I can't fault this product in the least. I knew I was buying the non-swivel version. The price was worth it.
Other Thoughts: Monster is a rip off. As any honest tech guru will tell you, wire is wire. Monster might work better if you're stationed at the south pole or 2000 ft. underwater thanks to it's extra special oxygen removing process or whatever hooey they're peddling at the time, but if it's rated high speed, it's the same as every other high speed HDMI cable made. Don't spend $100 or even $200 on an standard length HDMI cable. You're a fool if you do. Monster makes a good product, but rips you off with a bad price. HDMI cables are the newest version of the age old profession of snake oil salesmen. If a salesman shows you an A/B comparison that's noticeable, he's rigged it with something else and dishonest. There are class 1 and class 2 HDMI cables. All class 1 cables are capable of the same thing, and all class 2 cables are capable of the same thing. Good luck even finding a class 1 cable.READ FULL REVIEW
