Both $4401. Pretty interesting.

So, I've got a 600T White Edition (a treat to myself last year), and it's been a good case, and very attractive; I have a lot of people say "Wow" when they see it (that, or the triple portrait monitors usually get them). I could say a lot of nice things about it.

BUT...it is a finicky case. Its lauded cable management isn't the end-all solution it's claimed to be; the front panel has died on me once, and needed replacement, and they still don't include an infernal front-panel USB 3.0 adapter, or even offer one; it's not a quiet case, even at low fan settings (via the adapter); lastly, its clear side panel has some chromatic aberration which tends to create double images.

Buy it on a sale, at least. I don't really understand how it has only gone up in price.

As a proud owner of a 3930k, I'd like to say one thing.

This thing is fast. Fast as hell.

I wish I actually made much use of it, it's such a shame that I haven't been really compiling as much as I though I would.

Too bad you still don't have that Celeron D on Newegg. That thing is as fast as (even hell can't descibe this). And it only costs $5!!! (And yes, faster than even the Xeon E7 Skylakes OC'd to 10GHz)

Are you guys upgrading your DSLR's or just going balls out on your first camera?

avatar

gordonung

Upgrade from a 5DM2 and 1DM2. And it's not like I'm getting a 1Dx, it's what I wish I was getting.

I have that rice cooker and it's a really good rice cooker but WTF is a RICE COOKER doing on this list?

Katherine wants the staff to pitch in to get her one I think. She's not very subtle.

Some of the items listed like computer parts, shouldnt you have them laying around? I mean you test and get alot of samples?

And Katherine, i just got your TV (labor day sale). Its badass for watching sporting events. Plasma crushes LED TV's.

We get and review a lot of computer parts, yes. For instance, I review gaming laptops, but am still requesting one for Christmas. :D

We, unfortunately, don't get to keep a lot of the products we review.

Gordo,

I'm on that same PD32 UE waiting list. It can't get here soon enought.

You have good taste in lights!

Happy holidays to all!

I like the tactical flash lights at www.gerbergear.com not as powerful but still kickass. I want the hook axe. Like the one Glen used in Walking Dead.

Im surprised no staffer picked any leatherman like tool. They are just cool and fun to have.

I just got my PD32UE. The neutral white is nice but the flood takes some getting used to. I normally run a FourSevens Maelstrom X10 as my jacket pocket carry light. The X10 puts out a very respectible throwy amount of light for being so compact. It's just heavy so I was hoping for something pocketable. The PD32UE is a very good general use flashlight though.

I already have a Gen 1 and Gen 2 Wave so I don't see anything being an upgrade except for maybe the Leatherman MUT.

I have an INOVA T2 LED flashlight. It's really bright for a small inexpensive flashlight. I also have a high powered SureFire that can give temporary blindness yet still be pocketable. As a motorcycle rider and part time forensics personnel I always have one of the two flash lights with me and both came in handy for the aftermath of the hurricane.

I might look into these other flashlights... I can never have too many gadgets/ tools....

avatar

tony2tonez

Agreed. I have a couple handy tools in emergency bags, sort of like a bug out bag. And i carry just a couple of things around with me at all times in my bag.

Right now as a part time rally sport bike racer I'd like to get a nicer action cam. I already have a GoPro Hero HD but the low lighting sucks as well as some other things. Right now I have to choose from:

Contour+2, Drift HD Ghost, GoPro Hero 3 (black), and possibly the JVC Adixxion GCXA1BUS (what a name).

Any chance of some sort of comparison in the near future? Preferably before SnoDrift?

For the BD drive, what BD playback software are you requesting to go with it?

avatar

chriszele

I'd probably go with Nero Premium Video player since it seems like the least expensive video software that does basic Blu-ray playback because it's onsale on Amazon for $9. There probably is a better piece of video software that does Blu-ray playback out there, but most other playback software seems to be in the $30-$50 dollar range. http://www.amazon.com/Nero-AMER-11510000-Video-Premium-HD/dp/B00417GTVM/ref=sr_1_4?s=software&ie=UTF8&qid=1355210076&sr=1-4&keywords=nero+10

BTW, Santa hs moved his operations from the North Pole to China due to cheaper manufacturing costs.

Do these sharks come equipped with the latest Lazerrrrr technology?

Why doesn't AMD start disabling some cores on the Opteron chips and rebrand them as top-of-the-line FX chips so that they can compete with the intel Sandy Bridge-E chips?

avatar

vrmlbasic

After seeing the price listed for the Intel chip, which isn't even top of the line, in this list I can safely say that as far as it concerns me, AMD is already blowing Intel away. I can't afford a 600 dollar chip, let alone a 600 dollar chip.

But a FX-8350? I can handle that.

The government should really start pushing for science so we can get a portal gun that actually works. XD

avatar

vrmlbasic

Aperture Science got its funds from the defense budget, so no can do with democrats in power. "Defense" is one of the coolest, and acceptable, uses of federal money but they just don't see it that way. Sad face.

Spending money for shower curtains got us a portal gun. "Wasteful" Defense spending FTW!

(I'm not sure why Aperture was 2nd to Black Mesa; Aperture had all the truly kick-ass science stuff, portal gun > lame-ass hazmat suit)

$1300 for a kite? Really?

avatar

Kiteman

Yep, and that's just for one. You will need another one for a wider range of wind speeds. Not a cheap hobby but it'll get your adrenalin going; for some that's worth the price.
