Review requests

Well, I’ve purchased/borrowed a number of gadgets and toys in the last year or so that I HAVEN’T reviewed, so I thought I’d list them, and see if anyone wanted me to review any specific items (comment below with which item you want reviewed): (more…)

Portal review

In a previous post, I said I would write a Portal review, so here it is (I played it about 2 months ago, for reference).

Coffee maker reviews

Many folks know I’m an extreme coffee fan, so I thought I’d review the various super-automatic espresso machines I’ve had or tried since 2003.

Resistance: Fall of Man review

Awesome game. Great plot, extremely long play (for me, maybe 30 hours at Hard level). I actually played it last Christmas with the PS3 I “won” the right to buy on Amazon, but just put this review up because I finished Halo 3.

Halo 3 review

Finally played through Halo 3 at Heroic (started at Legendary, got stuck, changed to Heroic).

Here’s my brief review. It’s fun, and plays well. At Heroic, it took me about 20 hours to play through.

BMW 335xi review

I got my new car at the beginning of November, it’s one of the first 2008s to come on the line in Munich. Here’s some of my thoughts on this vehicle. I got the lighter blue (monaco) outside, light tan and walnut interior, and premium, winter, as well as HD radio, USB/iPod and satellite radio packages.

Blackberry Curve 8310 review

My new phone (unfortunately, the red one, I wanted the silver one: They’ll swap it out when the titanium/silver one is available) came into the Boulder AT&T store on Tuesday. I called the AT&T main number and visited the website but neither gave any indication that the phone even existed. I paid $150 after rebate. This phone replaces my 8707v. As soon as I saw the Curve, I knew I wanted one, but the GPS was a necessary feature, so I waited for that version.

Infrant ReadyNAS NV review

This is a review of the Infrant ReadyNAS NV, not their newer NV+ (featuring quieter operation and an LCD display). This review was written by request (yup, Jason G., I’m talking about you).

Out of the box, this is my favorite computer hardware. I bought a diskless ReadyNAS NV for around $663 including shipping (from NewEgg.com) and populated it with 4x 750 GB hard-drives. The initial firmware didn’t support these newly released Seagate 750s, so I populated it with 3x 750 until it could. It’s been solid and reliable ever since.

Roku M500 review

This review is a little late coming, but here goes. I am on my third (yes) M500 after replacing two previous ones. The Roku M500 is a streaming audio box that allows you to stream internet radio, music from a NAS box, computer, iTunes, etc. It comes with a nice remote and it has a built-in display that’s bright and displays the time while off (via NTP update). I use (or used) the Roku because AM and FM reception are sketchy up here in the mountains, and also I like to listen to radio from Canada (CBC, etc.) from time to time. Most of the time I do not use it because I use my new Yamaha RX-V2700 to stream audio.

Xbox Media Center

Kind of kicking myself for not having done this early, but I soft-modded my Xbox (using MechAssault), and installed the XBMC 2.0.0 package this weekend. With a 0.0 build, it’s a bit buggy, but for the mere cost of an Action Replay 8MB memory card and a $2.29 used copy of MechAssault from Gamespot (not to mention about 3 hours to get it working…. my bad) I have a super-powerful media center PC, which can play movies PROPERLY off my NAS box, Youtubs, whatever. The interface is slick and fast, and supports FF and RW at various speeds, unlike my DSM-520.

Only 1 downside, the thing is LOUD when on (and cannot be turned on or off with the remote).

With some smart shopping on eBay, you could get this High Definition platform up and working for under
$150 + $30+$3 = $183, a bargain compared to the competition and the power of this platform.
