Callaway Golf Warbird Plus Golf Balls (12-Pack) Review

Callaway Golf Warbird Plus Golf Balls (12-Pack) Review I’ve been using the Callaway Warbird golf ball since they came on a yellow box and with the Callaway sign also in yellow, without regrets. This new design is the same quality with updated attributes and a modern look. These little balls can fly and feel great all around the golf course if you’re are not a professional golfer or a low handicapper, as I understand spin is not that good and being double core some very fast swingers will lose some advantage. But if you are a casual golfer and want a great ball that don’t make you cry when you lose it into the woods or drop it into the water, these are the balls for you

I would say these are the best balls on its category

Wilson Staff Fifty Elite Golf Balls, Pack of 12 Review

Wilson Staff Fifty Elite Golf Balls, Pack of 12 Review The Wilson Staff Elite 50 golf balls are the best golf balls I’ve played with at just about any price. I’m getting the distance that I got with my Titleist NXT Tours that I have been playing with for many years now and the feel is just incredible. I bought a dozen after seeing a few reviews on them and I liked them so much that I turned around and bought another dozen the day after I played with them for the first time. What I was really amazed about was that I played 18 holes with the same ball and it was still like new. I thought that at least the ball was too soft to last a complete round of golf, but boy, was I wrong. Keep up the good work Wilson Sports. I am a golfer of 48 years now and I have played with a lot of golf balls over that time. Let me tell you, the new Wilson/Staff Elite 50’s are for real. Try them, you’ll like them. I promise, and if I sound like an advertisement, I’m sorry for that.

aden + anais Muslin Dream Blanket Four Layer Review

aden + anais Muslin Dream Blanket Four Layer Review I was a little hesitant to spend so much on a baby blanket, but I took the plunge and am so glad I did! This blanket is just as soft as the regular aden & anais swaddle blankets, just much thicker and warmer. Our daughter never really had a favorite “blankie” until we bought this for her and now she sleeps with it and wants to carry it around with her all of the time. Our daughter is 23 months old and this blanket is the perfect size for her to cover up with at night. Most other blankets were much too small to actually cover her up. We also bought this blanket, in the blue color, for our newborn son but it is just too big and bulky to wrap him in yet. I do use it to cover him up in his car seat, or lay him on it on the floor when we are at someone else’s house. It’s nice to know that he won’t outgrow the blanket anytime soon and hopefully will use it for many years to come like his sister. The blanket washes well and seems like it will hold up well in the long run.

Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 11.6-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook Review Specs ||

Acer Aspire S7-191-6640 11.6-Inch Touchscreen Ultrabook Review I’ve been waiting for a thin, light windows subnotebook that was powerful enough to run modern software. My needs were: small footprint, light weight, >WXGA+ screen, intel core processor, backlit keyboard, USB 3.0. I’ve owned Vaio Ps, Vaio Us, Viliv N5, Vaio X (this machine sort of replaces that model for me), Toshiba Libretto, Fujitsu U820, Thinkpad 240x, Thinkpad X61. After looking at the various crop of 2nd-gen ultrabooks (Asus UX21a would have been a contender but cannot find it anywhere) I was excited when the 11.6″ S7-191 finally showed up on Amazon. This machine is almost perfect. First things first:

LIKES
1. It’s gorgeous. 12mm thick. Under 2.3 lb. 1080p touchscreen. Two USB 3.0 ports and microSD slot. First laptop that doesn’t completely ape the offerings from the fruit company. I’d say aesthetically it is one of the most original and stunning designs of any PC laptop in the last few years. Fairly restrained, clean design with minimal branding. It feels solid and doesn’t flex. Hinge has nice resistance. Build quality is very good. Kudos to Acer.
2. Screen is incredible. I’ve waited a long time for a high-res screen on an ultraportable and this screen does not disappoint. Fantastic viewing angles. Sharp and bright. Almost too bright (I keep it around 50% most of the time). Photos and videos look amazing. I’d venture to say this is the best screen on any laptop that i’ve owned. My only nit is I wish it were matte instead of glossy…I’ll have to see if there is a screen protector that can solve this. Touch and swipe are accurate and snappy.
3. Keyboard is great for what it is. I’m typing this review on the S7 and although the key travel is a little shallow it’s reasonable considering the 12mm thickness of the laptop. There is just enough travel to register the keystroke. It takes a little getting used to but the keyboard has gotten very comfortable to type on i’d say it’s as comfortable to type on as my macbook pro. The electroluminescent backlighting is a really nice, soft light blue. Keystrokes register pretty accurately (thankfully, I haven’t had any issues with super sensitive keystrokes as reported by some users although i’m sure it affects some keyboards) and the keys themselves are relatively quiet.
4. Performance has been surprisingly good. Cold bootup and shutdown takes seconds. I’ve run Photoshop CS6, Illustrator CS6, Acrobat 11, Outlook, Sketchup, all perform without a hitch so far. Windows 8 requires a learning curve but it’s not bad, coming from Win7. I’ve also noticed that it seems like the fan barely runs and when it does it’s barely audible and the laptop stays cool…barely even gets warm (I can’t hear it running as I type this review).
5. Accessories…It’s barely mentioned but this configuration includes the following in the beautifully packaged box:
– a vinyl/pleather carrying sleeve. It works and i’m glad it’s included. Doubles as a nice mousepad.
– an extra battery! I’m not sure why it’s barely mentioned. It’s a little cumbersome to attach and remove, but i’m glad it’s an option. The battery can be recharged on it’s own, and it seems that when it is attached to the laptop, the laptop will draw the power from the external battery first and then from the internal battery second. There is a battery indicator light that can be pressed on the external battery to indicate the amount of charge left
– USB 3.0 to VGA cable
– USB 3.0 to ethernet
– screen wipe/keyboard cloth
– Bluetooth mouse with batteries. I haven’t used it yet but i’m glad it’s included

DISLIKES
I wish there were more than 4GB of ram. It’s been adequate so far but I would have paid extra for 8GB. Also the 128GB SSD seems a little small capacity nowadays. Again, I would have paid extra for at least 256GB. Like the other reviewer, I too bought a 64GB class 10 microSD SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card 30MB/s with Adapter SDSDQUA-064G-U46A and it lives permanently in the microSD slot. I also would have liked the i7 option as I know it exists (i’ve seen it in many videos and i’m pretty sure it’s available in other regions, just not in the US). Acer’s website is lacking of any information. Keyboard has some odd placements (delete key, tilde, missing function key row so F1-F12 must be accessed using the Fn+ key) but this wasn’t a dealbreaker.
What WAS nearly a dealbreaker was the flaky wifi issue that showed up early on. Wifi would disconnect from sleep and would indicate it was connected but websites wouldn’t load. After reboots would temporarily fix the problem it’d show up again upon wakeup from sleep or have erratic connections after a few minutes (wifi would show as connected but “limited”). After scouring the internet for solutions, I read about a setting for the Atheros wireless (always on, don’t allow computer to disconnect from sleep) and a power setting for wireless (placed on maximum while on battery and while plugged) and I haven’t had the flaky wireless issues since (crossing my fingers). Battery life doesn’t seem to have taken that much of a hit in this new setting.

So the S7 has met all of my expectations, It’s currently the best combination of portability, power and usability for my needs (all specs being equal to most ultrabooks, that 1080p IPS touchscreen plus microSD slot really is what sets it apart from most comparable 11.6″ ultrabooks).

Cheap Laptops –> HP Pavilion DV6-1354US 15.6-Inch Black Laptop – Up to 4 Hours of Battery Life (Windows 7 Home Premium) Review Specs

HP Pavilion DV6-1354US 15.6-Inch Black Laptop – Up to 4 Hours of Battery Life (Windows 7 Home Premium) Review Specs I purchased model DV6-1354US with 500gb hard drive and 6 cell battery. I use this laptop for editing photos with Adobe Photoshop CS4, as well as editing audio with Adobe Audition 2.0.

I have a five year old HP laptop running XP and it is still going strong. Despite outsourced Indian phone support, I was able to communicate support issues effectively. I am confident in future hardware performance and support from HP.

Transition from XP to Windows 7 was intuitive. The new taskbar is my favorite improvement. Followed by much better graphic interface and widgets. Some of my XP software causes Windows 7 to turn off Aero mode. I feel that windows has caught up with Apple in terms of graphics and workflow.

As far as laptop is concerned, Dave from Portland has a great review comparing the different models available on Amazon. The DV6-1354US is sufficient for me to use Adobe Photoshop and Audition, as well as multitask.

I will never go to a laptop again without a numeric keypad, this was an unexpected plus. I do miss the old HP media controls above the keyboard. They are replaced now by a volume and wireless control. I like that they are no longer buttons but touch sensitive surfaces above the keyboard.

The DV6 is quieter and cooler than my old HP. The power cord is beefier, which was always a problem with my old HP. Although I would prefer a magnetic power cord like Apple offers. Compared to other manufacturers, I would have to say that HP has the best price for great, reliable hardware.

Everything is a wonderful improvement except for the sound. Frequently, friends would ask where the music was coming from when I used my old DV1000. I felt that the sound was very rich for such a small system. I find the DV6 to have a much shallower, smaller sound that finds trouble filling a bedroom. For this reason, I drop the DV6 to four stars.

Also, the DV6 doesn’t come with recovery disks. You need 3 DVD+R or -R (not RW) disks to create your own.

Overall, I really enjoy this computer, and probably will continue to enjoy it for another 5 to 7 years until RAM is in petabytes and laptops cook dinners. If I had to do it again I would still choose it over an Acer, Asus, Dell, Mac, or Sony.
