This review is from: FUJIFILM FinePix 2D/3D 10MP Digital Camera - W3
Pros: The camera is very easy to use. Shoots stereo movies as well as stills. I've been taking stereo photos with DIY electronically coupled film cameras with slide film for about 15 years, and this is so much easier! (And it works better).
Cons: Not really a con, but it's very easy to put a finger on one of the lenses, as they are very near the edge of the camera (but they have to be).
Other Thoughts: If you do get a smudge on one of the lenses, clean it right away! A haze on one of the lenses ruins the 3d effect.
I have a 3d tv (LG) and hooking up the camera with HDMI allows watching the movies without any problems. The tv detects that it is 3d, and everything just works. Resolution on movies is slightly lower than for stills.
This review is from: Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 11.6" Touchscreen Convertible Ultrabook
Pros: I have not had any problems with the hardware on this system. Windows 8 worked well, and seemed kind of fun but ultimately I need to use it for work so I wiped out Windows and installed Ubuntu linux.
Battery life is about 3 hours without the external battery, more than twice that with the attached battery. Screen is beautiful. Touchscreen is very responsive. Body seems very rigid and strong (aluminum). The keys are backlit which is nice for working in a darkened room.
I did not have any of the issues with wireless disconnects that another reviewer mentioned.
Touchscreen under Ubuntu Unity has all gestures recognized (3-finger window move + resize, 4-finger Unity menu open)
Cons: I wish the battery life were longer, but it is a core i5 and it's driving a big display.
If Windows 8 were on a separate partition instead of spanning a Raid 0 array, I wouldn't have had to wipe it to put on my work OS. It would have been fun to play with more.
Other Thoughts: In order to have working bluetooth, I had to install the daily build of Ubuntu 13.04. Make sure you follow the directions for installing with UEFI, if you want to reinstall Windows some day for dual boot (at your own expense, unfortunately.)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S1 Rev.2 VGA Cooler
Pros: Has clear directions, and seems to work as advertised. Temperature on Nvidia 9600GT went from 51C with stock heatsink + noisy fan to 50C with this fanless option.
Cons: It's big, but I knew that before I bought it. Fits just fine after moving a few SATA cables around.
Other Thoughts: Silence is a beautiful thing.READ FULL REVIEW
