Canon PowerShot A490 Silver 10.0 MP 3.3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

5 out of 5 eggs Great choice for the price 11/13/2010

This review is from: Canon PowerShot A490 Silver 10.0 MP 3.3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: Easy to use and handle. Picture quality is far better than I had expected at this price point. Auto funtions allow close-ups with the best image quality that I have ever seen in an entry level camera.

Cons: Not sure that are any cons that you wouldn't find in any $100.00 range camera. Our folks are great at complaining and nobody's whined about it in more than 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Purchased for our X-ray department to do photos of setups. It's such a nice camera that other folks are borrowing it and using it all over our plant. Based on the popularity we will be buying at least 2 more.

This would be a great gift for anyone that uses a point and shoot.

Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Nice case. Great flexibility and slide-in trays for HD and DVD.The slide in trays speed up the build and this last one was only about an hour. No wicked sharp edges to slice you up. Large fan with 3-speed switch. Power supply is nice and stable with plenty of connectors. The whole thing is pretty quiet.

I like the locking door on the side that keeps prying fingers out of the unit after it's up and running.

Cons: Almost all cases that I get are dented somewhere. The Antec cases (my 2nd one) are very well packaged and the carton wasn't damaged. This means that this went in the carton with a ding in the top. Seems to me that the Chinese are struggling with the concept of quality control.

Is this part of why they can make things cheaper than the rest of the manufacturing world??

Other Thoughts: This is a new build for our shop but if I were buying this for myself I would be upset about the dent on the top in the front. This looks to have happened before it was painted. I would give 5 eggs if not for the dent.

I am now standardizing the builds for our company and I will be using this case from now on. They aren't the cheapest out there but when you figure you get a good quality power supply with the case the price makes more sense. I watch for these on sale now.

Acer X193WCb Black 19

Pros: No dead pixels. Good styling and easy to adjust to your taste. This is a great buy at the $100.00 point. These are a good deal and you don't have any rebates to contend with. Take a look at the ratings on the other monitor brands that use rebates and count how many folks don't ever get theirs.

Cons: No HDMI input so it's not the highest resolution Acer flat panel that you can get but overall it's an excellent buy.

Other Thoughts: For office computing this is an excellent choice. This is the 6th Acer monitor that I have purchased in the past 2 years and all of the users are very happy with them. I have never had any dead pixels and nobody ever complains about their monitors. New Egg pricing and service is excellent as always.
