Adobe Acrobat XI Standard for Windows - Full Version
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs It's Adobe Acrobat 09/23/2013

This review is from: Adobe Acrobat XI Standard for Windows - Full Version

Pros: It's Adobe Acrobat. It works with all versions, it gets the job done, it's the industry standard.

Cons: Incredibly expensive for the small functionality provided. In an age where the PDF is so widely used and so simple to create, Adobe has no justification for charging almost 300 dollars to manipulate a PDF. For the more experienced users, we all know that the main reasons you would buy Acrobat over using free Reader is for the Convert to Word, Convert to Excel, or extract/splice features... Adobe guards these features with its life, so its only a matter of time before MS Office integrates (Get on this MS!)

Because it's the standard and the software itself always works, it still gets 4 eggs, despite the massive price tag.

Other Thoughts: IN MY OPINION: For those of you who do not know, Adobe Flash is going out the door with HTML 5 soon to take over. in 3-5 years time, flash will be just an old way of doing things and no longer used. Because of this, Adobe needs to charge such a huge amount for Acrobat in order to stay alive for the time being. As MS Office gets more and more integration and PDF ability, even Acrobat will be rarely used over the already free Adobe Reader.

IF you need additional functionality, take a look at Nitro PDF. They are 115 bucks, ($95 if you trial first, then buy it on discount) and they have just about all the functionality of Adobe Acrobat minus the embedded video/media. If you don't know what that is, trust me you don't use it and you certainly don't need it. All basic, intermediate, and even advanced features of Adobe is all packaged in Nitro PDF, and they even lay everything out in classic Microsoft ribbon fashion which we all know and love :).

Bottom line: Unless your employer/boss is twisting your arm and demands Adobe Acrobat, you'll get major kudos for bringing Nitro PDF to the table. Everyone likes to save $150 per license, even less for volume copies. And of course, if you can get away with Adobe Reader and all it's free functionality, stop there and consider yourself lucky.

Panasonic KX-TG4772B 1.9 GHz Digital DECT 6.0 2X Handsets Cordless Phones Integrated Answering Machine
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: My boss has a remote office at her house and she needed a reliable house phone to make calls from. It's a bit tough for me to get to this place so I wanted something that will work and will keep working for as long as possible. I didn't have a budget for this task, and among all the $200+ phones, I had the most confidence in this one to just plain work. The phone is so far performing excellently, the volume is nice and loud/clear and the screen quality is excellent. I couldn't believe the crumby reviews from some of the expensive phones loaded with features that people say can't make clear calls. This phone is reliable and durable. It will just keep working and for a perfectly reasonable price tag.

Cons: No real cons discovered, it should be noted that you have to set your voice mail answering machine from one of the cordless phones and can't do it from the main station. This is just kind of strange, but setting the vmail worked perfectly so I can't complain.

Other Thoughts: DECT 6.0 is awesome. I made calls with this phone from outside about 100 feet from the station and didn't get any static, diminished call quality. Whatever you end up getting, make sure it has this feature.

If the Adobe Reader does not appear when you click on a link for a PDF file, you can download Adobe Reader from the Adobe web site.
