Olympus Evolt E-520

Posted in Uncategorized by makelargps on January 17, 2010

If you’re wanting to step-up from a point and shoot digital camera, but
on the fence about a DSLR versus SLR-like camera, then you can purchase
the Olympus E-520 with confidence. There is absolutely no other entry
or mid-priced system on the market that has the feature set for the
price that you can get the Olympus Evolt E-520 for. I carefully researched
and compared systems that possessed the features important to my
family: live view, image stabilization, optical/sensor quality, and
finally, PRICE.

Buy it now and you won’t regret it. I’m using this camera in Iraq
and am amazed at the quality of materials, the brightness of the rear
LCD, and the ease of use. I replaced a destroyed Canon point and shoot
and felt right at home with this system. The myriad of auto function
and shooting modes ensures virtually idiot-proof quality photographs
that you will be proud to share with family and friends.

If you can’t already tell, I highly recommend this camera. I’m even
thinking of purchasing an Olympus Evolt E-520 for my wife to replace her
aging point and shoot when I return from Iraq.

I researched heavily in the internet about Olympus Evolt E-520 SLR cameras before I took
the plunge. Afterall, if you are going to spend this much money on a
gadget, you better be careful and that you get the best bang for the
buck. Almost all editorials from SLR experts are unanimous about this
model being superior to Canon and Nikon offerings. This 2008 model has
all the 4 features that are most desired in a modern SLR, which are: a
live view display, dust protection mechanism, image stabilization and
dynamic color range. Among its class and price range, this camera is
the only one that has it all. When I saw the price discounted to almost
half and a few hundred dollars less than comparable Nikon and Cannon
and Sony offerings (these three brands actually received less favorable
ratings but are significantly more expensive), I thought it was a
no-brainer. I had to look twice at the price to make sure I was not
mistaken. Indeed, for a lot less dollar but with a lot more features
and quality, this item is real steal!

Keurig B40 Single-Cup Brewer

Posted in Toys Article by makelargps on January 6, 2010

The Keurig B40 was the first K-Cup brewer made by Keurig for the consumer market.

 

Being the first, it doesn’t have some of the extra features you’ll find on their more recent models, the B60 and B70.

 

That said, what it does have is the exact same brewing system.

 

You simply add a K-Cup, close the lid and press the brew button. And the cup of coffee it makes is just as good as those made by the more expensive models.

 

Best of all, the Keurig B40 costs less than $100, which puts it well within the price range of many of the coffee pod brewers.

 

So why a K-Cup brewer rather than a pod brewer, which uses coffee pods?

 

One reason becomes apparent only after you have used both types of machines for a while.

 

With a Keurig brewer you literally “drop” the K-Cup into the holder and close the lid. But with a coffee pod brewer you are using coffee pods and have to be quite careful about how you place them in the pod holder.

 

In other words, instead of being able to casually drop a K-Cup in, you have to place the pod carefully, and make sure its edges don’t overlap the edge of the holder. If not placed correctly, the seal between the lid and body of the pod brewer is not complete and the whole thing can leak badly when you start brewing.

 

While the Keurig B40 Elite is certainly the base model, with only one brew size, it does have one additional feature that is very welcome…

 

It has an auto-off feature that turns the brewer off if it isn’t used for two hours. This is useful, because if you leave it on all the time, it is constantly keeping enough water hot for your next brew, and adding to your electricity bill in the process.

 

If you are on a budget, or are looking for a second Keurig brewer for your office or even a dorm room, the B40 may be exactly what you’re looking for.

BEST NERF GUN EVER

Posted in nerf raider by makelargps on December 21, 2009

This is the best nerf gun ever!It’s like the vulcan but much much better 1. it’s a lot less heavier which means you can actually carry it into battle(without difficulty). 2. it hardly ever jams. 3. it has a lot more dart capacity.Also you can put the magazine into other guns like the recon and longshot and it seems like the magazine improves the guns range!If you are an extreme nerfer you need this gun!!!!!!!!

Ok, I was very much excited about this Nerf blaster.
Pros:
Pump-action: much better than previous designs, closer to either a bolt action or the slide on an semi-automatic pistol (without the semi-automatic part…)
Loading is much better (not one ruined dart, unlike when I owned a longshot or with my friend’s recon)
Slam fire. Prior to purchase, I didn’t exactly know what they meant by “slam fire,” but when I found out, I was hooked. This probably makes this the N-Strike gun with the fastest rate of fire (without requiring 6 d-cell batteries…)
Since I purchased before Sept. 30th, I’m ellegible for 50 free darts from Hasboro.

However, there is one major drawback (and a couple minor ones):
Firing does vary. By this, I mean that one shot it could have a range of 30 feet, while the very next shot could just fall to the ground after leaving the barrel, and this doesn’t seem to depend on single shot or slam fire mode.
Minor detail: modifying the blaster to remove the air restrictor proves a bit more difficult, since I can’t seem to seperate the barrel components to get to the air restrictor.
