This review is from: SCEPTRE X22WG-1080P Black 22" 2ms(GTG) Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 2000:1
Pros: Still looking and performing as good as when they first arrived! Can't ask for anything more. Used with an HDMI switch to watch my DirecTV when I wasn't working on my PC until I bought an HDTV a couple years ago.
Cons: Speakers absolutely suck but are better than nothing. Can't take anything away for that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS P5Q Pro Turbo LGA 775 Intel P45 ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Simple. The advertised features.
Cons: Simple. The advertised features don't actually work as advertised. I also own a p5q pro and for the last couple of years it has been a rock. Does what it is supposed to. I figured this board would do the same PLUS give me a few upgrades for a new system. NOT. First off, it wouldn't boot up with my full 8GB of G.Skill DDR 800 OR my wireless Logitech USB mouse and keyboard. After waiting 15 mins or so for it too boot the first time I came to read some reviews to see if I was alone and found others had the same issues. I took 6GB out and jacked a standard keyboard and mouse from my kids Edubuntu box and it booted like a champ. Yippee. I installed Vista and the mobo drivers and gave it another shot with the full mem and usb keyboard and mouse and it booted successfully from then on. It has one less (really 3 if you count those 2 useless ports) sata port and doesn't seem to want to work in RAID AND have a boot drive at the same time. Go figure.
Other Thoughts: Nothing I try seems to work with this board to get it to put 4 of my drives into RAID 0 and leave the other drives a boot and backup drives. I'm writing this review because it sucks that I have to downgrade my Cubase DAW back to the p5q pro mobo so that I can run my RAID 0 audio drive AND have a boot drive at the same time. It's rediculous. And this board came with the latest bios version already installed. Thinking about trying a downgraded version but don't want to wast more time than I have to by just "trying" stuff to get it too work. I figure that I don't need to run a raid drive setup on my office/internet box so I'll swap mobo's BACK. Then I'll be able to run my 4 sata 3g 500GB drives in raid 0 again and have my boot and backup drive capabilities back again. Shame. I'm "giving" this board 1 egg because I can't give it 0. None of the advertised features mean a thing if it can't do the basics - let alone what it's advertised as.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS In-The-Ear Bluetooth Headset (Voyager 855)
Pros: It's pretty and looks cool on your ears.
Cons: It constantly and consistently looses connection with every phone I've tried it with - RAZR V3, iPhone and Intermec CN3. One call it works and the next I have to use the the phone handset - I press the talk button and no one's home. Defeats the purpose of having a HANDSFREE headset if I am constantly having to handle it and the phone.
Poor sound quality with boom in and out - people are always asking me to repeat everything and appear to be working really hard to maintain a conversation with me without hanging up and trying to get a better connection.
Ear loops are worse than fragile. No matter how I stored it they each all snapped on me. What sucks is that it's not worth trying to replace. What's really worse is that Newegg won't show this review to help save you some grief.
Other Thoughts: My Motorola HS850 just worked. Sound quality was awesome. Never lost connections or sddenly hung up on me. Volume and clarity was great. Only problem was it was not in-ear so it tended to flop around a bit when I really got moving at work.READ FULL REVIEW
