lenovo ThinkVision L197 Black 19
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Price that fit the job reqired 11/27/2012

This review is from: lenovo ThinkVision L197 Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 1,000:1

Pros: Price, free shipping, looks brand new, perfect function

Cons: 1600x1050 would have been a plus but for the job this refurb is tackling its not really needed

Other Thoughts: Picked for a hobby bench monitor to swing arm mount (so it can ne pushed out of the way when not needed. I read / watch a lot oh DIYs / how tos / building and trobleshooting guide while working on entirely too many hobbies at the work bench. Having a monitor right there) rather than the other side of the room) is very convenient. Watch a little TV, a movie, a you tube "how to"; all so much niver with a cheap yet decent little monitor safely tucked up on a swingarm. Now I do not have to worry about my nice laptop getting smashed bt some random project I am working on.

Mass Effect 2 Limited Edition PC Game

5 out of 5 eggs Better than the original 03/18/2010

This review is from: Mass Effect 2 Limited Edition PC Game

Pros: More engrossing story than the original Mass Effect. Ability to import ME1 save games (if you remembered to save them) which includes a huge number of the conversation and decision points from your ME1 game for each character. Somewhat higher quality graphics and more detailed environmental development. More NPCs! Loyalty system!

Cons: Less world exploration. Redone Biotics/Tech powers, works, but I actually prefer the 'old' way. Heatsink 'clips' vs. overheating. I think I preferred dealing with overheating. I want my M35 rover back! ;)

Other Thoughts: The command buttons are changed a bit from ME1, which is quite confusing at first, particularly if you've played ME1 many times through. You get used to it, but I still hit the space and cntrl and shift bars expecting ME1 commands at times ;)

Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model 996599

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: FAST @ DDR2-800 (4-4-4-12) -- Heatshields are a bit more robust than the basic XMS heatshields have been recently -- Good warranty

Cons: None (Price is up compared to a bit back...) -- I'd rather have an instant rebate than a mail-in one ;)

Other Thoughts: Due to recent issues with Cors@ir (my preferred RAM), I decided to give an old standby another try. Back in the PC66/PC100/PC133 days Mushkin made some absolutely fantastic RAM, but at the beginning of DDR (not DDR2, just DDR) they seemed to fall off a bit and I switched to Cors@ir. Prior to that however, Mushkin was in every gaming system, workstation, etc. that I put together and it just never failed to perform in excellent form. This new Blackline series is right back in the game. Running only at DDR2-800 speeds it is running at 4-4-4-12 with no voltage bump. Very, very pleased with those numbers.
