This review is from: Bose AE2 Audio Headphones - Black
Easy to Travel with
Little Bleed with good ear cushions
Detachable cord for replacements
Cons: It's a little bit nitpicky but I ride the subway every morning and sometimes if the cord snags on a rail or something it immediately detaches without notice and falls to the floor. I've nearly lost the cable numerous times from this. At least replacement cables are inexpensive.
Other Thoughts: I've had these Headphones for 2 and half years and they still are going strong. The main worry you'll have with these is replacing the wire every few months from general wear and tear. The socket end usually strips with continuous commuting. Right now The audio quality has only diminished a little bit - the clarity is getting a little bit fuzzy, which is normal after such a long period of time blasting music. Soon I will have to replace the ear cushions on this set because the foam underneath is pretty much completely exposed. Overall, I think for 2 years of utter abuse these have held up pretty well. Earbuds for me usually only last one or two months.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Silent Case Fan
Pros: These fans are quiet, and have adequate cooling
Cons: comes with 3 pin adapters, only.
Other Thoughts: A Friend and I together built his very first PC and we needed a low cost cooling solution. since his NZXT case has 7 fan mounts we went with these. I brought him from home some molex to 3 pin adapters to make all of them work. Later on we bought a fan controller to cool them all.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon Rebel SL1 8575B001 Black 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body Only
Pros: Sensor allows for video autofocus
very small, lightweight
all current, standard Rebel line-up features
High ISO range
Cons: This camera is a crop sensor like all the other rebels. Know the difference between 1.6x crop sensors and full frame sensors before you buy a DSLR, as it has an effect on focal length when buying lenses.
This also has a somewhat different layout of buttons, it takes a little bit of work to get used to if you use lots of different cameras
Weight is so light shots can sometimes be shaky
Other Thoughts: I do lots of film work with DSLR's and I needed my own rather than borrow my Film Department's standard: a canon t3i that is heavily used by lots of other students. So I did some research and I decided on the SL1, Scratch that, My SL1. I had a 50mm f/1.4 USM lens lying in wait for this camera, so it does not dissapoint when it comes to superb image quality. The touchscreen is a nice addition as it provides somewhat of an extra set of buttons on your 3" screen to use. All of the features from a t4i crammed into the smallest DSLR in the world!READ FULL REVIEW
