XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Best mousepad I've ever used 10/01/2010

This review is from: XTRAC PADS Ripper Mouse Pad

Pros: Fist I have to say that this is the first mouse pad I've gotten that has lasted me over a couple of months without starting to get in the way of the mouse movements. Second the size is great for gaming. I've never run out of space even when I spas out in mw2.

Cons: When traveling back and forth between college I have to roll it up because it's too big otherwise, and it takes a little bit of time before the mouse pad feels flat again. So if you travel a lot it might now be for you.

Other Thoughts: Awesome mousepad, if you're looking for something inexpensive and great for gaming, this can't be beat.

HIS H587F1GDG Radeon HD 5870 (Cypress XT) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card w/ATI Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: As everyone said before, this is a beast of a card. Runs games great on max settings. The only games I have trouble with are crysis (blame poor coding) and GTA IV (probably need at least 2 GB v-ram to run this maxed out, and it doesn't support SLI).

Cons: Well first I have to say that my card fried on me after 3 months of use. I've always watched my temperatures and kept the system clean, then one day the card just stopped sending image to the screen. I contacted the company HIS uses for RMA and they worked well but it took them almost a month to send me a replacement which is a painfully long wait time.

The second problem is with the fans. The ATI drivers keep the fan at 20% and NEVER make it go higher even when temperatures go up. I have to change the fan speed manually in the options to keep the card cool. Even at 60% speed the fan sounds like my air conditioner. I personally don't mind my computer being loud but this may be an issue for others.

Other Thoughts: Overall the card is great for gaming, but loud and if you are unlucky like me and end up with a bad card you will end up without it for almost a month.

5 out of 5 eggs Great backpack 03/30/2010

This review is from: Swissgear  PEGASUS 17" GA-7306-06F00 Laptop Computer Backpack

Pros: - Lots of pockets.
- Very comfortable to wear
- Doesn't let rain through
- Feels very solid

Cons: - May be too small for some people, The laptop section has a lot of space but other sections feel tight.
- If your laptop is 14" or smaller (mine is 14") then it may not be held securely.
- Doesn't have good pen holders (yes people with laptops still use pens)

Other Thoughts: - Great laptop backpack for the price, much more comfortable to wear than previous bags I've had.
