Most Favorable Review

Great for older system Asus P8P67 Deluxe

EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 12GB XC GAMING, 12G-P4-2263-KR, 12GB GDDR6, Dual Fans, Metal Backplate
EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 12GB XC GAMING, 12G-P4-2263-KR, 12GB GDDR6, Dual Fans, Metal Backplate

Pros: Will probably run any new games even with this older mobo. Fans only run when needed. Super quiet in my opinion.

Cons: None..

Overall Review: No regrets. Uses less power than the 580 and has heaps of Ram.

Most Critical Review

Not exactly my new best pal.

Microsoft - 16GB Zune HD (BLACK)
Microsoft - 16GB Zune HD (BLACK)

Pros: Gets 3 eggs for the effort but in my book it is mediocre at best for the money! Plays the music. Screen is responsive!

Cons: Expensive for what it is. Battery life with wifi on is ridiculous. The equilizer is a joke. I would like to have control not just the presets. The visual arrangement was designed by a goat. see other comments

Overall Review: Most people don't want a bunch of stuff flying across the screen zooming in and out just to create the sense you have a new product in hand. All that becomes innoying within 2 hours. Microsoft should have focused on other things such as a bigger screen, outer speakers, an actual equilizer and battery life. I am not impressed! Who needs an mp3 player anymore when we have smart phones? Sony Walkman 16 gb is about $100 and I have to say that it is trully an mp3 player that works its buns off for you. Great sound and menus and with many options. Most of all the equilizer is a true 5 channel eq. If you are looking to waste your money for something called an mp3 player this is it! If you are looking to listen to music efficiently and without using stupid microsoft software that connects to the web to check if your shoe size is validated.... go with something like the Walkman.

Quick install

Pros: Quick setup. Works without screws. Does the job. Wouldnt use if you move the case around a lot by car.

Cons: Its plastic.

Overall Review: Works ok.

Great older laptop. No complaints! Thanks!

Microsoft LifeCam VX-5000 1.3 M Effective Pixels USB 2.0 WebCam - Lucky Green

Pros: works

Cons: Annoying software. It took for ever to install. It almost seemed like microsoft just made a mirror of my hard drive or something. It actually downloads stuff from the web. Why diesn't it have the stuff on the disk?

Overall Review: I would stay away from any Microsoft stuff. They alwasy what you to let them validate this and that and ask for impersonal info about your system and so on. I have a Hercules web cam that took 3 minutes to install with great picture and microphone and easy to use software for 10 bucks cheaper.

NOT Super!

Pros: decent price does its job

Cons: power hungry ( not a big deal) made by ATI

Overall Review: Wish there was something from NVidia that was just as good for the same price. ATI is tries but they can't seem to get it right. Too many problems in too many games. Small problems but annoying. ( ie. a little stutter in Test Drive U.) For gaming Nvidia is the way to go! Most games are now optimized for Nvidia and yes they support ATI on the side for convenience.
