Amazon.com Product Description

The Zen Micro digital music player from Creative Labs packs an incredible 5 GB of storage capacity into a shell small enough to sit comfortably in your jeans pocket. It also rides nicely in your hand, with a palm-fitting profile and thumb-friendly front-panel controls. It's a bit shorter than an Apple iPod Mini, yet its rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides 12 hours of continuous playback--50 percent more than iPod Mini's. The Zen Micro is compatible not merely with MP3s and WAV files, but with WMA as well. Toss in USB 2.0 connectivity and you're looking at one spiffy portable music player.


But playing isn't all the Zen Micro does. You can use it to receive FM radio (with 32 station presets to keep your favorites at the ready), and to record, either from the radio or from live sources such as voice dictation or lectures using the Zen Micro's built-in condenser microphone.

Trimmed in a luminescent blue glow and with easily visible backlit buttons, this stylish light blue player holds up to 1,250 songs (83 hours) at 128 kbps or 2,500 songs (166 hours) at lower-fidelity 64 kbps (MP3/WMA)--that's a solid week's worth of music listening, never playing the same song twice. Compatibility with Microsoft's WMA compressed-audio format grants access to over 2 million downloadable songs offered promotionally or for sale online.

Perhaps the Zen Micro's coolest attribute is its DJ feature, which will shuffle not only all the songs you've loaded or all the songs on a given album, but also, at your discretion, only the tracks you listen to most, or only those you rarely hear, taking the work out of selecting your favorites or hunting out all the music you're still getting to know.



Zen Micro's rechargeable battery is easy to replace.
For navigation, the device features a vertical, linear touchpad designed to make searching through songs or playlists easy, quick, and fun. The unit's blue, 160 x 104-pixel, electroluminescent LCD shows key functions and song details at a glance, and you can even customize the main menu to keep right at your fingertips the features that matter most to you.

Another of the Zen Micro's handy features is its personal organizer. You'll never forget an important anniversary with the onboard calendar, and it also includes a to-do list and a contacts list, all of which sync seamlessly with Microsoft Outlook (Outlook thus required for use of these features). In addition, the device offers a sleep timer and alarm so you can drift off to sleep to the strains of one playlist and wake to a completely different one.

The Zen Micro's removable battery is easy to swap with another fully charged battery (additional batteries sold separately), extending your listening by a half-day per swap.

What's in the Box
The Zen Micro player, stereo earbud headphones, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, an AC/DC power adapter, a USB 2.0 cable, a belt clip, a stand, a stylish cloth pouch, an installation CD, a quick-start guide, and Creative MediaSource software. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A Good Product
I've not yet added a "wired" computer to this yet, so it's only operating with a single wireless laptop, but setup went very well once I had everything connected properly. After setup, Belkin uses a specific URL through which you can reconfigure the router, and that seems very convenient, although I've nothing to compare this system too.

I only have 2 problems thus far: I can't seem to be able to activate the encryption features on the device, and since hooking it up I've been unable to access my Norton Anti-Virus Live Update feature. I've had Belkin products before, however, and trust that the support people will help me with both issues. I don't regret purchasing this unit.

3-0 out of 5 stars Belkin 54g Wireless Router: The Future (When it works...)
I had just received cable Internet access in my household, and I needed a convienient way to share the connection with the three computers in the house. Ethernet seemed impossible, so I went the wireless way with the Belkin 54g Wireless Router. One major hiccup aside, the router has worked pretty well.

Setup was painless. I plugged the cable modem into a designated port on the router, turned on the machine, installed the device and drivers (drivers before device, or the thing will not install easily) for the matching PCI cards on all the computers, and bada-boom, bada-bing! Windows XP immediately recognized the router on all the computers and connected me to the network.

Everything worked flawlessly until about a month ago. The router, all of a sudden, would not connect us to the Internet. We called Belkin, and support was not too good. A two-hour wait and about an hour spent diagnosting the problem. I continued to tell them that the router was probably faulty, but the support staffed denied that a replacement was necessary until after an hour on the phone. They sent us the new router (with the new firmware for the updated 802.11g standard), we called up for an RMA number, and we were set. Router continues to work very well.

One note: look for upgrades at www.belkin.com. I was an "early adopter" of the 802.11g standard, and by the time it was finally an "official standard," new security features had been put in new firmware.

Final verdict: Great product, works excellently, but don't expect great support from Belkin when it is needed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for bridging
This product did exactly what I wanted it to do -- I bought two of them and made one really big wireless network in my house. One is hooked up to my DSL and the other one range-extends the wireless network to the other part of the house. This particular model of Belkin router is super easy, and not at all flaky like some of the others I have used (...). I have used *a LOT* of wireless products and this is the best one by far. (I've set up: Apple, Linksys, Orinoco, D-Link, and Netgear stuff. Most of it is crap). This product is also good for people who don't use Windows.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not Disappointed
AT first, like one of the other reviewers I also had some problems setting up the router with my Verizon DLS. But after looking it up online I found out that I needed to add "@verizon.net" to my user name after I did that the router connected and ran smoothly.

The Wireless Signal strength and range are pretty good. Belkin has some good technical support both over the phone and online.

Two things to suggest don't bother with the Easy Install Wizard CD that comes with the box it causes more headaches then it helps just use the Web-based Advanced User Interface. I know it says Advanced but it's pretty straightforward and simple, just read the manual of how to connect the router if you don't know.

Also the router comes with most of it's security features disabled, just remember to Enable them.

I highly recommend this router, works great, and it's pretty inexpensive.

4-0 out of 5 stars Really good customer support
I bought a 54g so that I could use wireless TIVO. The router has excellent range as my computer is upstairs and my TIVO is down stairs. The installation was SUPER easy. Just use the CD and you don't have to do a thing to get under way.

The administrative web site was also easy to use. Configuring WEP and MAC address filtering were very easy. The only thing I would caution is that the web interface allows you to delete the MAC address entry for the computer that it's installed on WITHOUT warning you first. You then have to flash the router's memory and start over.

Their tech support also rocks! I called 6PM on a Sunday and they took my call in less than 5 minutes and I didn't even have to prove I bought the router.

I highly recommend. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Value for Money
I got this feature-packed digital music player for under $70 - and like most other people, I was also surprised to see that it was much smaller than I expected.

Here's what I liked:
* Plays MP3 and WMA's (format used by majority of online music stores - not just iTunes)
* FM Tuner - High quality reception, even better than my Sony CD Walkman!!
* Extremely small and light!!
* Voice Recording and FM recording.
* Line-in (cable provided)
* LCD Screen with adjustable contrast provides menu to select featured and settings. No such thing in iPod Shuffle.
* Small "scroll" wheel (like the one found in a PC mouse but much smaller) to skip songs or select menu with a thumb.
* Includes belt clip and sports armband.
* Can be used as USB disk to store/transfer files.
* Easy to use - use Windows Explorer (for unprotected content), Windows Media Player, or Creative Media Explorer to drag and drop files.

Some words of caution:
* At 128kbps, 256mb runs out pretty soon 3 CD's max. Better go for 512MB.
* No neckstrap or lanyard - online product description said ther was one, but there was none in the shipped product.
* Color is different from shown in the pictures - it's *not* all-white. It's white with a blue border around the LCD screen.
* Unlike iPod shuffle or a USB disk, the player does not plug directly into the PC - it requires a USB cable (which is included). But then again, that helps keeping the size of the device smaller.

One reviewer mentioned that recorded files are stored in WAV. That's true but the only downside is that the file-size is larger than MP3, since WAV is an uncompressed format. That does *not* mean that the quality is not suitable for music.

Overall, a great buy if you want an MP3 player with FM.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very nice overall
Pro/Con/Neutral observations all mixed in:

Second to the iPod Shuffle, it's one of the slimmest MP3 players out there.

5 band equalizer in addition to preset options.The custom EQ is real-time, so you can hear the sound change as you adjust it.I wish the presets (you know, "rock, jazz, etc") would show you how they are actually setting the EQ, but I guess it either sounds good or doesn't.I always use the custom EQ anyway.

Easy to find most menu options. Some options are a little abrupt, like selecting FM recording and it just starts--there is not menu for it.But this is actually kind of handy, because you can just select it to record quickly.I figured out how to use all of the features in about 60 seconds.I can also get to any option pretty fast.

No software needed, just plug in and drag/drop.

Single-level folder navigation - it can only see the first level of folders, but it can still play everything in sub-level folders, you just can't specify which folder within a folder is playing.

Perfectly-fit rubber slip-in case with clip.It's very basic, and probably costs about 50 cents to make, and it is EXACTLY what I wish all small devices included.

Headphones have good bass response, but they are a little large in size compared to my Sennheiser 500's making them less comfortable to wear.

The volume up/down keys are loose within their set holes, so they rattle.They could have fixed this cheapish annoyance by adding a tiny bump to the inside of the case.It's annoying, but it doesn't affect anything.

As far as I can tell, you can't "browse" through your other songs while one song is playing.

The price is good when it is on sale.

Only a 3 month labor warranty, 1 year for parts.That means after 3 months you have to pay them to repair it.In my repair-related work experience, labor is usually the larger part of repairing most electronic items, so after 3 months the manufacturer could be covering less than half of repair costs.That said, I don't know what Creative typically charges people for labor, but it's kind of a shady policy.I would rather have 6 months parts and labor than the unbalanced 3/12 months.

There is a built-in mic for recording.Low-quality, short-range pickup good pretty much just for notes when you really need it.

It has an input jack for recording (in addition to the microphone).It's a 3/32 jack, not the regular 1/8, but it does include a cable that adapts it to fit the regular size.I haven't tried MP3 recording, but I don't really have a use for it.

The sound quality is not exceptional.There is a slight hiss sound typical to all small audio devices, so this isn't really bad, but you would get better sound quality from one of the larger MP3 players like the Zen.

The rubber cap protecting the USB port is permanantly attached so you won't lose it.Ironically, the line in jack, which most people will never use, is has no cap.But if I am not going to ever use it I guess it doesn't matter if it collects lint.

It picks up where you left off when you turn it on.I think this is common now, but I am not sure all MP3 players always did.

3-0 out of 5 stars FM Recording is NOT MP3
At this price, I would've bought the N200 solely for FM recording but there is a problem... It records FM only in wav, not mp3. That means the quality is not suitable for music. This is according to CNET's review, and this fact was well obscured by Creative's crafty marketing.

5-0 out of 5 stars great little pink mp3/wma player
my girlfriend uses this while bicycling and jogging (and rollerblading, and snowboarding, etc.)size really matters when you are active, and in this case the smaller the better.it makes a big difference between carrying a mini ipod and this little gadget.the included protective cover (soft translucent silicone-like material) and arm band (simple black velcro) are very handy accessaries.

since this is used mainly for working out, she did not need a very large storage capacity.the price is very attractive, if she breaks it she wouldn't be crying about it (well, espcially when i bought it for her).there is an audible noise when the blue LED light is lit, but it doesn't really bother me/her.it would be nice if creative labs could address the issue in later models or release revisions, however.

the construction of the case is very acceptable given the price range, especially since it is made in china -- what do you expect for the price?the LCD is very easy to read, the blue LED accent is always a cool touch (until at some point we all get bored with blue LEDs).the ear buds included are not bad, but i'm sure they could be better, but i hope you didn't buy this product expecting a portable concert hall.you'll probably want something that sits more securely when working out, though.

oh and FYI, the ipod mini's are manufactured in china as well.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great but very little drawbacks
I got this little baby 6 weeks ago and it works very well.The minor flaws is the headphones that comes with the mp3 player they hurt your ears after listening with them for a while, the light makes noises that interferes with the sound of the music, the mp3 player automacitcall put the songs in alphabetical order and i couldnt put the list in the order that i wanted to listen to it, and the 256 mb it tought at first would be enough but right now i have to delete stuff in order to fit my favorites on the player.One minor good but bad thing is that the mp3 player plays in sorround sound.It wont't let me let other people share the headphones with me so we both can listen to a good song.
Some of the good qualities is the excellent sound that this thing has i can put the thingup to full volume and put it out and ic an still hear the music.The thing is so small when i first bought i thought it was a little bigger tan i had imagined.This little baby is great for working out listening on a ride and et cetra. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent but hungry mouse!
Probably one of the coolest designs Ive seen.
The size just right and not too small, the receiver can be kept inside the mouse when not in use, sleek design and the color matches my HP pavilion laptop (silver and black), nice contours and very comfortable for my palm, and it feels just like a corded mouse only w/o the annoying tail. Everything went smooth and happy until I discovered that this mouse consumes battery like a a pig that wasnt fed for days! If you get one of these pig-rodent, you must also be ready to buy a charger and pack of 4 rechargeable batteries. And if I had to modify this mouse, Id add a on/off buttton so that I dont have to worry about forgetting to unplug the mouse after use. Still, I think its the perfect travel mouse!(although u need to carry the batteries with you, so minus 1 star)

5-0 out of 5 stars clever peice of work
I've been using this optical mouse with my laptop for about two months and I've found it most satisfactory. This mouse has several things going for it. Firstly, it's not as small as many other travel mice. The size is about 3/4 that of a regular mouse, which I prefer. Makes my hand less sore. This little guy also has a scroll wheel. However, the niftiest thing about this mouse is the receiver. It fits into a slot on the underside of the mouse when you're not using it, AND it breaks the battery circuit when in place. So your batter doesn't run down when you're not using the mouse, and you're not likely to misplace the little receiver. It's a little difficult to explain without seeing the set-up, but trust me: it's clever, and it works well.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
This mouse is the perfect compliment for anyone looking for a lightweight optical mouse to go with their laptop/PC. I have been using it for over a month now with no problems. The USB receiver is a tiny 1.5 inches long and it fits into the mouse itself for easy storage (see pictures). Battery life is average, about 100 hours for a single charge AAA 900 mAh rechargeable batteries. Mouse is well built with a nice soft click when you press the buttons. May not be suitable for avid gamers as it's only a 3 button mouse. I'm running Windows XP and it's a simple Plug n Play, managed to avoid using usual problems with installation CDs. Great product for the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Battery lasted a month
The batteries that came with the mouse lasted a month to me. About 4-5 hr of use every weekday. I always remember to turn off the mouse when i not use it. So i guess i have used optimized the use of the battery.

I suggest you buy two higher capacity batteries for it.

The mouse overall is GREAT! Really convenient for light weight laptops.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent mouse
I'm one of those who always rolled his eyes at the idea of wireless mice, especially for laptops.The idea that someone would need a radio-controlled device to communicate with a computer that was two inches away seemed ridiculous.

Well, it's not.If you hate trackpads (I do), and can't make yourself spend the $500 premium for a laptop with a pointing stick (I can't), you want a wireless mouse for your laptop.I learned this the hard way, by first buying a wired mini mouse for my new laptop.I soon learned that wireless mice aren't silly at all.

That mouse cable which isn't much of a problem for a desktop becomes a huge hassle with a notebook, since it has to be unwound and rewound for every work session.Worse, each winding twists and kinks the cable more, and you eventually wind up with a rat's nest that's always in your way.

So I knew I had to get another mouse, but wanted as few things to schlep as possible.Most wireless mice require that you add three things to your travel kit: the mouse, the transmitter, and a carrying bag.Not this one; since the usb transmitter stores inside the mouse itself, this mouse is it's OWN carrying case...that much less to worry about.

It's so cleverly designed it makes me chuckle with admiration.It's just a case of getting everything right.

_____

December 2004 update:

Recently the mouse suddenly stopped working and I had thought it had failed, but buried deep in Labtec's website was the fix: If this mouse appears to have died, replacing the batteries may not be enough to reactivate it.You might require the following steps, in this order:

1) Remove & replace fresh batteries.
2) Depress the small reset button on the receiver
3) Depress the reset button on the underside of the mouse.

This did the trick for me...simple enough, once you know about it. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars The worst computer experience i have ever had.
I had decided to try switching from PCs to macs recently, and thought the mac mini would make a good first mac computer.

I ordered my first mini with all the extras and when i got it, i tried importing all my cds to itunes. The optical drive was malfunctioning whenever i put in a cd with the slightest scratch on it. It would freeze up, making an awful skipping sound, and i would have to force quit itunes and sometimes shut down the computer and turn it back on just to get the sound to stop and get my cd out.

I called tech support, and the first man said there was nothing wrong with the drive, it was my cds that were at fault. Their solution was to take my scratched cd to my PC, burn it and take it back to my mac mini and then try to import it.

I said, ok, so my cds should work on other computers, but not the mini? and he kept saying how it was my cds and not the mini. I asked him if i could return my mini and he said no because i had bought extras like more ram and bluetooth. so i got off the phone with him and called back again.

The next tech support "help" also told me there was nothing wrong with the computer but i could return it (but not exchange it because there was nothing wrong with it). He transferred me to someone who told me i could exchange it, which i did.

Now, my next mini comes in the mail, without my bluetooth and airport extreme options. "Oops, sorry", they say, "we can return it and we'll send you another mini." I took it to my local store and they very nicely installed them for free in 45 minutes. So, now with less enthusiasm for my new purchase, i took my mini home, and tried out the optical drive again, which again had troubles. Now i should mention I took the same cd's that wouldnt work on my mini, and they worked on my PC and on my friend's mac.

I called back the apple store and all they would give me for compensation was a return for my mini (not the $60 keyboard i can no longer return at the store) and $100 credit for my next apple purchase. I said sorry, that's not enough for the hassle that i will probably go through again.

Never, never again will I buy an apple product. This whole hassle lasted for most of a month, and it is still not over yet. Time for me to buy another reasonably priced PC. My mac friends are all about their mac's, but first impressions are lasting, aren't they?


5-0 out of 5 stars No free anything
Clicking your way past this barrage of come-ons finally gets you to the meat of the matter. Incentive Reward Center says you have to sign up for at least two offers from participating firms to get your hands on that free iPod.

It looks like there might be some freebies here, but most of the offers are for DVD and music services, credit cards and other such strings-attached programs.

according to sfgate.com

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing little machine
i'm really impressed at how fast this thing goes. it was ready to go out of the box after a 3 minute setup, it's really fast for only having 256mb of ram, i love the combo drive, tiger is great. it's practically silent unless the combo drive is running. and it's super easy to use. it also has a lot of programs for 600 bucks, i think it's great and highly reccomend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't make my mistake!
I made a big mistake by trying those "get a Mac Mini free" offers. Only 1 day after signing up, I was bombarded with over 500 junk emails and 15 telemarketing calls. Ugh!

I hope everybody here can learn from my misfortune--I guess it really is true that it is impossible to get something for nothing!

The Mac Mini is a great computer. It's too bad sleazy "marketers" are using them as bait for their fraudulent schemes.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Thing I Ever Got
my dad bought me this computer for my 12th birthday and i love it i will admit this im a spoiled brat.and i have tooo much crap in my room. but when i saw it im thinking what the heck is that because its soooo small. and it fits perfectly in my room. and the little sucker has a CD burner on it i couldnt believe that and a DVD Player! but over all this is the coolest thing in the world apple has done a great job with this one. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Not the latest Version
I just bought GoldMine.This version is 6.5 but the latest version is 6.7.GoldMine requires you to pay extra to get that.Given that Amazon advertises this as "newest version" this seems pretty bogus.

5-0 out of 5 stars very good package for knowledgeable PC users
Get this product if you're a savvy PC user.Then, you'll be amazed at it's functionality.If you half-the-time can't figure out how to make your PC work, then don't get this progranm as it will blow you away.Simple fact--the more powerful the software, the more knowledgeable the user must be to harvest the functionality and this is one powerful package.I run a mutil-million dollar company with it and used it when there was just one employee.So it's grown with the needs of a rapidly growing company.Other people that wrote reviews here complained about the support.If you need lots of support, again--this is not the package for you anyway.Their support is not good but who cares--can you read a manual?They have trained consultants throughout the US if you do need face to face support or customization.

1-0 out of 5 stars One of the worst programs I've ever bought
This is absolutely one of the worst software purchases I've ever made.It's difficult to learn (and I was a software engineer for 15 years, so I'm not new at this), it's buggy (I tried to do mail-merge the other day and it simply wouldn't work), and support is non-existent.

Just take a look at the forums on their website.Instead of having a helpful knowledge base, they depend on user-to-user support and consultants to make their product work.

To be fair, I've talked to people who use older versions of GM and they say it's a good product.Also, the GM/Outlook synchronization works well.

On the other hand, the GM/Word link doesn't work much more of the time than it works.I don't know how many times I've re-installed it.And apparently, FrontRange doesn't keep the resources on their website up-to-date so when you download a version of the GM/Word link, you're not sure whether you're getting the latest version (again, take a look at the forums).

It's been a complete headache since the day I installed it.

4-0 out of 5 stars What I wish I knew before buying GM ...
I never write these reviews, but I feel that I must based on the information that is available under the reviews as they are polarized and only vaguely helpful.

Second, my rating would be 4.5 stars, but Amazon doesn't allow that.I would rate this product five stars except for the support issue which is a problem.I actually think it is not as big an issue as many of the other reviewers.

Third, I'm a huge Goldmine fan (GM) - I purchased mine on Amazon at the end of Aug 2004 - and I am completely hooked.I recommend this program to anyone that needs any type of customer relationship management (CRM) software for any business because it will do everything that you can imagine.Yes, GM does has warts, but so does salesforce.com, or Act (which I have used in the past) or anything else.GM is VERY cheap and an INCREDIBLY powerful product for what it can do.

I consider myself to be very computer savvy and to get GM working the way that you want it too, this is helpful.Any other database (including ACT!) requires some user savvy to work too.I wish I had been aware of the following before I purchased GM from Amazon:

1.(Acutally I did this.) Free 30-day trial from www.frontrange.com - so try it before you buy it (but buy it here - Amazon has the cheapest prices).
2.There is no support (hence less than 5 stars) from Frontrange.However there are a enormous amount of people out there who can (and will) help you.The support is primarily through a newsgroup identified on frontrange's website.
3.GM, like any other sophisticated CRM relies on you to make it work for you.If you don't have a lot of contacts then Outlook is probably all you need.However, it really helps if you are technologically inclined before you purchase this product because, although you can use it straight out of the box, to make GM really work you will need to modify this program to your needs (same as ACT!).If you're not technologically inclined there are many GM consultants who will charge you a fee to assist you.Don't call me, I'm not a GM consultant.
4.You can read the manual for this product at www.frontrange.com, and you can also dowload two 450+ page manuals written by Frontrange that will help you understand what GM can and cannot do.(Does this sound like a lot of work for a $165 product? - sure, but this product is worth the effort.If you are inveting in a database do you want to trust your data to chance? The cost of bad data, and a poorly designed and not particularly powerful product is a lot more than $165!!)
5.This product will do ANYTHING that you need if you're looking for a database.Yes, ANYTHING.Hence to get value (this product does work straight out of the box) but it really excels when you customize it.Any database is only as good as your ideas for making it work.
6.Since August I have entered more than 100,000 contacts into GM - I'm in a contact intensive field - and this program is invaluable for keeping in contact with people.Excellent reminders for everything - one nice feature: you can set the alarm so that GM sends you a text message to your phone telling you that you have an appointment and the text includes the other person's tel number.This feature has reminded me of potentially missed meetings and calls on a number of occassions - worth $165 right there.
7.This is a FULL working database - and it is EXTREMELY fast and compact - for example I had 25,000 contacts in Outlook and the search function was incredibly slow was Molasses trying to get around it.The act file was close to 600MB in size.GM WHIZZES - the same DB is a trim 150MB, with much faster look ups.However, like any other database it requires a lot of effort on behalf of the user to ensure that the product is changed so that it works the way you want it too.
8.If more than one person is going to access the database, GM makes it easy for multiple users to access the database.This product is exceptionally scaleable.You can have 1 person or 100s of people working the same database.
9.The best support is through what I would loosely term the "GM community."Through the frontrange website you can access a newsgroup (look under the support) where people post questions which are answered by people who subscribe to the community.There is a wealth of information there.However, if you're the sort of person that gets scared at the idea that you might have to understand what the computer is doing, then stick with Outlook.There are a large number of GM consultants who do charge money for their services - in many ways this is no different than microsoft or many of the other large companies.Many of these consultants publish answers to questions on the newsgroup for no charge.Let's face it, if it's a business threatening emergency wouldn't you want a specialist to be able to get to work right away?With so many consultants available there is nearlys always one on hand.
10. The mail merge feature alone is INVALUABLE and easy to use, (although it is not a full HTML email product).You can, however, (through purchase of an add-on product) still use Outlook as your e-mail client, with the advantage that your Goldmine address book can be hidden from the Outlook directory.Outlook is FULLY integrated.So when you get an email in Outlook, GM automatically appends a reference to that message to a contact in it's database, so that you have all of that person's messages in the one place.In addition, all email attachments are linked to that contact.
11.Any file can be linked to a contact and the link is "hot."The link is a shortcut to the file so with one click you can retrieve all of your letters or documents associated with a contact.
12.Importing data into GM is easy.
13. It is incredibly easy to keep on top of a long list of tasks.I regularly make upward of 100 phonecalls a day, with follow on calls required many times because I don't get people.I NEED a product where I can find all of our interaction with one client, and all in one place.Under each contact in GM you can store all of the emails, telephone calls, actions that you have taken, appointments, etc.
14.The lookup feature is a little quirky and not what I was expecting.It took me a little getting used to (a few hours) but once you get the hang of it, it is really fast and efficient.

Overall:

strengths - alsolutely robust, an intelligent, well put together product with an exceptional value for the price - the best $165 I've spent in years.Obviously, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product.

Weaknesses - lack of support from Frontrange, requires the user to read up on the product and want to work with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Too Complex and Support Sucks
Truly a piece of crap. Dozens of useless bells and whistles that add complexity but no utility. An entire industry of third party Goldmine consultants exists to charge you big bucks to make it do what it should do out of the box. The product is unstable and crashes frequently, sometimes destroying your data along the way. GoldMine support, if you can actually reach them, expects you to be a database wizard and patronizes you and gets impatient if you ask questions. For a while they eliminated support entirely, then offered email only and took two weeks to respond to me while my company sat dead in the water. Buy ANYTHING else. These people don't deserve your business. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Made for kids but works well for me!
I have relatively small hands (I can play an octave on the piano, but it's a stretch to hit a ninth). My hands are an inbetween size that balks at full-sized mouses but cramps at grabbing travel mouses. On a whim, I tried this mouse, advertised as "2/3rds" the size of a regular mouse.

It is great fit for me. It is comfortable, plus it tracks very well, and feels as smooth as any mouse I've ever owned.

Highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product for the money
Purchased this item to use as a "briefcase" as a claims adjuster. Found the identical item for twice the price at Best Buy but returned it to order online at Amazon. Many pockets provide exceptional storage. Computer case can be removed separately to lighten the load when it's not needed. Carrying handle, back-pack and wheels with handle make it quite versatile no matter the terrain. Highly recommend this to anyone who needs a sturdy product that needs to be mobile.

5-0 out of 5 stars Durable, Roomy, Stylish
This is by far the best notebook backpack I found.My laptop is a 15.5" and its hard to to find a backpack that wasnt HUGE.This doesnt look huge but it has so much room inside it and plenty of space for books, disc, power cords, a mouse, etc.I also think its well made andhas enough padding to protectyour laptop.The zippers are great!!! Really smooth and it never feels like its sticking.Its also a lot easier on your back than one of the messenger style notebook cases!It also comes with a lifetime warrenty if you fill out the card and mail it back (at least mine did...it was inside the bag).

5-0 out of 5 stars One helluva bag
I absolutely love this bag..I use it for my Wide Screen 15.4" Dell Inspiron 8600, which absolutely doesnt fit in any other backpack in the market. This one's a real stud. Though a bit heavy, its one solid unit, and protects the laptop well, with tons of room for your other stuff. I intend to use it mainly for Air travel, and bought it after a lot of research in Circuit city and other stores.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best backpack for a laptop EVER!!
I've never seen anything that kept my laptop so safe from damage and/or water.If you want something hip AND protects your notebook computer, buy this Targus backpack!

5-0 out of 5 stars This thing does it all.
I needed a good way to carry my laptop onto planes and around the E3 show in Los Angeles, CA. So I purchased this backpack. It is everything I had hoped for in a laptop backpack. This thing holds my 15 inch Sager 5690 perfectly and the protection is top notch. The bag has room for pretty much any and all business related items you would think to bring. It has great construction, roomy compartments, and the overall TARGUS quality you'd expect! I recommend this to anyone except people who have laptops with bigger screens. I hear some 17's fit in here, I just don't know which ones. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Upgrade from 10.5 to 11.0 was BAD choice; no updates
I am a systems integrator and have been supplying clients with PC Anywhere for several years for remotely monitoring chemical and industrial processes.This involves animated HMI software and it has always worked fine.When using ver.11.0.1, I have found that the animations will not automatically update when the host and remote are connected over a local network connection using fixed IP addresses.The same software works fine over a dial-up connection.I called their tech. support and received absolutely no satisfaction.I guess it's back to 10.5 till something better comes along.

2-0 out of 5 stars Clunky Upgrade
There is a definite downturn with this new release- screen draws are noticeably slower and simply starting the application takes longer.The new interface has the task-based side bar found in newer applications, but it adds no benefit while robbing me of valuable screen space - the old toolbar at the top was much better.I applaud Symantec's fixing odd behaviors (non-invasive, such as strange 'quick' popups to handle internal routines, etc), and I appreciate their attempt at making the user experience more consistent and smooth, which they did, but the overall value of the product has dropped.For the core features I use (connect, control, end session) the performance has dropped- and I have no need for the new features.I'll be selling this on ebay... right after I go back to the odd but faster 10.5.

1-0 out of 5 stars I regret upgrading
I upgraded several systems from 10.5 to 11.0 and have found that the new version does not work nearly as well as the old version.My biggest complaint is that in cases where the host computer has a dynamically updating screen, the remote computer may not receive updates at all making it look as if the host computer is either stuck or is still processing something when it has in fact finished.

There is an interface change that added a navigation panel to the left of the remote display that oftentimes makes the entire window too large thereby forcing me to scroll through windows that I didn't have to scroll through using the old version.The addition of the 'Remote Management' tools would be helpful if they worked properly.The command line tool very often didn't respond properly at all, making it not worth attempting to use when I can just open a command window through the remote window.

I am going to have to go through the extra work of uninstalling 11.0 and reinstalling 10.5 on several systems.Very disappointing!

2-0 out of 5 stars Step backward from 10.5
I regret spending the money for the "upgrade" from 10.5.PcA 11 no longer shows time remaining for file transfer, nor does it show transfer speed.It hangs, giving a "Cannot create directory" message for no discernable reason, where there was no problem with 10.5If 11 has some advantages, I find nothing that does me any good.It has a different interface, but I don't see that as either better or worse. I'm going to remove it and go back to 10.5. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Take your entertainment center with you wherever you roam with the HP Pavilion ZD8110US Media Center Notebook PC. Record your favorite TV programs and watch them on the widescreen 17-inch LCD monitor, view photoslideshows with your own soundtrack, or watch DVD movies, and control it all with the included remote. The ZD8110US can also unleash your digital creativity with the multiformat, dual-layer DVD/CD burner and included Image Zone photo editing and management software. This multimedia notebook features a super-fast, hyper-threaded 3.0 GHz Pentium 4 processor, 100 GB hard drive, 1 GB of installed RAM, 54g wireless connectivity, multiformat memory card reader, and a powerful video/graphics card with 128 MB of dedicated RAM.

The Basics

  • Hard Drive: The 100 GB hard drive is one of the largest available in today's notebooks, enabling road warriors and multimedia enthusiasts more than enough capacity for storing documents, digital media files, and productivity software.
  • Processor: "The hyper-threaded 3.0 GHz Intel Pentium 4 630 processor allows a single CPU system to behave in some aspects like a dual-CPU system, helping to deliver faster transistors and increased performance. It also features a large 2 MB L2 cache and a blazingly fast 800 MHz front-side bus speed, which measures how fast a processor and the main memory communicate. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance.)

    A Hyper-Threading processor helps a PC to run multiple demanding applications at the same time. This technology enables the processor to execute two threads (a part of a program) in parallel, boosting performance during key high-drain procedures. This results in more efficient software performance (such as faster reaction times in gaming applications) and enhanced multitasking."

  • Memory: The 1 GB of installed RAM (2 x 512 MB, dual channel at 400 MHz) is a very good start for this multimedia-centric notebook, but you'll want to take full advantage of the 2 GB capacity (2 x 1 GB) to maximize the multimedia.
  • CD/DVD Drive: Offering the latest in DVD writing technology, the ZD8110US multiformat DVD/CD drive is compatible with both DVD+ and DVD- disc formats as well as dual-layer DVD+R discs, which can store up to 8.5 GB of data.
  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a standard keyboard with scroll bar and integrated numeric keypad, and a touchpad with on/off button and dedicated vertical scroll up/down pad.
Screen, Graphcs and Sound
The ATI Radeon X600 SE is a high-end video card, powerful enough to run one large virtual screen across two displays. It features 128 MB of dedicated video RAM, S-Video and the higher-fidelity DVI connections out, and PCI Express x16 support, which enables graphics to process faster. The 17-inch WXGA+ high-definition widescreen LCD has a 1440 x 900--pixel resolution that provides a 45 percent larger picture than a 15-inch screen. This glossy BrightView screen is also easily viewable in direct sunlight and has a wide viewing angle. For audio, this notebook features 16-bit Sound Blaster Pro compatible audio and internal Harman Kardon speakers. It features a volume control and mute buttons.

Connectivity and Expansion Slots
The ZD8110US has an integrated 54g wireless LAN that's fully compatible with 802.11b/g wireless networks. The 125 HSM/SpeedBooster support will enable it to be ready for tomorrow's 125 Mbps wireless LANs. You get a good offering of connectivity options, including super-fast USB 2.0 and Firewire:

  • 4 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • 1 FireWire (also known as IEEE 1394 or i.Link) port for connecting digital video camcorders and other peripherals
  • 1 VGA monitor port
  • 1 S-Video out
  • 1 IR (infrared) port
  • 1 Expansion Port 2 connector
  • 1 PCMCIA (or PC Card) slot (Type I/II, 32-bit)
  • 6-in-1 memory card reader (compatible with Secure Digital, MultiMedia, Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, SmartMedia, and XD Picture Cards)
  • 1 headphone jack and 1 microphone jack
It also has an integrated 56K modem (V.90) and an RJ-45 LAN network port (for a 10/100 Ethernet connection to networks and DSL/cable modems).

Preloaded System and Software
The pre-installed Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 is essentially Windows XP Professional Edition with a variety of tools to help you to create, organize, and enjoy digital media ranging from music to home movies to photo slide shows. Additionally, it enables you to control your television with the included remote and record and pause programs (much like a DVR--or digital video recorder--such as Tivo or ReplayTV). With the 250 GB hard drive, you'll be able to record and store up to 180 hours of video programming. It's compatible with cable, digital cable, satellite TV and antenna inputs, and it includes an FM tuner.

The included HP Image Zone Plus photo and imaging software makes it easy to organize, edit, share, print, protect, and store your photos and video clips. Organize and find your photos easily by timeline, keywords, and/or location using the unique photo-globe mapping tool. Remove red eye and fix other common problems. Share your photos quickly via e-mails that include thumbnails with links to the full-sized images--without downloading time-consuming attachments.

Other preloaded software includes InterVideo WinDVD Creator and WinDVD SE player, Muvee autoProducer, Apple iTunes, Sonic RecordNow, Norton AntiVirus 2005, Microsoft Works 8.0, MSN Encarta Standard, Microsoft Money, and Quicken 2004 New User Edition.

Dimensions and Weight
At 9.4 pounds, the ZD8110US isn't the most easily portable notebook. It measures 15.7 x 11.4 x 1.96 inches (L x W x H).

Power
This notebook is powered by a 12-cell rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which offers an average of 3 hours of battery life (dependent upon computing conditions).

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent CD-RW
I bought this CD-RW to put into my dell pc at home.I wasn't sure initially whether it would work, since I keep my Dell machine on its side, but this turned out to be a non-issue, the CD-RW works vertically and horizontally.

I know a bit about PC configurations, so I put the CD-RW's jumper on "Cable Select", to match my configuration, then I slid it in and plugged in some cables.The hardest part of installing this was really just trying to figure out how to open my PC up and remove a front-panel.

Once it was in, I closed up my PC, and booted up to WinXP.I didn't need to do anything, Windows knew about the new hardware.Next I installed Nero, and burned some CDs, it worked beautifullywith the cheap generic CD-R media I bought with it.

Later on, I bought some CD-RWs to go along with it, and realized I needed to install InCD in order to use them, which also came with my Sony CD-RW, once doing that, I can now use CD-RW media just as I would use a Zip disk or floppy or any other media.

I highly recommend this if you're ok with opening up your PC and installing new parts.

5-0 out of 5 stars I have had no problems
I bought this drive even though another review stated that the software was nothing but a pain. I installed the drive and I am using the software that was already installed for the CD/DVD burner that came with the computer. I did NOT install the software that came with the drive, I just allowed Windows to recognize the drive and install it's own drivers. That, and software I purchased for making cd's and such, and I am a VERY happy camper.

The drive has been working fine for over a month. We burn CD's on it. We use it as a source drive when we need to copy one of our homemade DVDs. It is working flawlessly.

I recommend this drive if you are comfortable with doing the install yourself. I can offer no opinion on the Sony supplied software, as I simply don't use it.

Don't bother wasting your money, or your time intstalling it. Had nothing but problems with the software that came with the hardware. ... Read more

Product Description

Connect any Ethernet-equipped device to a high-speed Wireless-G Network

The versatile Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge can make any wired Ethernet-equipped device a part of your wireless network. At home, use the Bridge to connect game consoles, set-top boxes, or computers to your Wireless-G network and its shared high-speed Internet connection. In the office, convert your Ethernet-wired printer, scanner, camera, notebook or desktop into a wireless networked device.

It's completely driver-free, so it works on any platform and under any operating system! Since there's no drivers to load, setup is a snap -- configure the network settings through your PC's web browser, then plug it into your device and go. And physical installation is simplified by support for Power Over Ethernet. With an optional POE Adapter, you can mount the Bridge wherever you want -- power and data are both supplied through the Category 5 Ethernet cable.

You can also use the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge as a kind of "cable-less cable" to connect remote areas together. Maybe Shipping is all the way across the warehouse from Receiving. Or maybe you want to set up a home office in your detached garage. With a Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge in the garage, and another one (or a Wireless-G Access Point) in the house, you're connected -- no digging trenches, and no overhead wires.

Let the Wireless-G Ethernet Bridge from Linksys open up exciting new possibilities for your wireless network

1-0 out of 5 stars LINKSYS IS JUNK!
If your looking for a device to bridge with, as I once did in this device, head on over to Belkin's F5D7330 Wireless Ethernet Adapter and read my review. Belkin's equipment is so much more reliable, it does what you ask it to and doesn't flinch like inferior DLINK and LINKSYS products.

This LINKSYS device is straight GARBAGE!

1-0 out of 5 stars Most Linksys products great, this one is *AWFUL*
I don't usually write many reviews, but after seeing so many reviews being so critical of Linksys and people saying that they'll never buy another Linksys product I felt I had to say something.I've been using Linksys products for years, both the 'b' and 'g' products, at home and at work, and they've been great.Reasonable prices, easy to set up, work without a hitch -- just set up and forget about it.

The WET54G is the *exception*.It's like they took all their worst engineers and instead of firing them, made them into the WET54G team.I'm on my fourth box, the first was a version 1 and didn't have a range beyond 5 feet.It eventually died with a blinking power light and I got it replaced by Linksys.The second died during a firmware upgrade.The third had better range with newer firmware but barely got a signal, about 20%.It eventually died too.I finally got them to send me a version 2 box and that's been much better.It's worked for months, gets good signal strength and range, but it seems to lose the connection after a couple of days and sometimes just powers off.

The new WET54GS5 seems to be getting decent reviews other than complaints about the WPA security, so the masochist in my is thinking about giving it a shot.

1-0 out of 5 stars Linksys/Cisco:"NOT FOR STREAMING, NOT for VPN..."
If you are considering this bridge to do video/audio streaming inside your house, think again.This review is based on over 2 months worth of testing this unit and then working with Linksys/Cisco trying to figure why it does not deliver.A saleperson at a local store may have told you that you can stream MP3s over your wireless network, or perhaps you have two DVRs in your house and your want to stream recorded TV shows from one to another. This is not the device you want to use for this purpose.Don't belive me? Ask Linksys level 3 support.Its architecture is not designed to support high levels of network traffic needed for streaming -- it has very small or zero I/O buffers to handle it -- as a result, the device will crash after 2-5 minutes of streaming.You can power cycle it and it will resume for the next 2-5 min.But forget streaming for a moment, WET54G crashed when I was simply working from home VPN'd into my company.Not for that either?!Do you think that WET54G ver 2 is better than WET54G ver 1?Been there, don't waste your time -- the architecture is the same.Alternatives? WET54GS5 might be better, but I'm yet to find that out myself.I know you want to try it yourself.Piece of advice -- buy at a retail store, and if it doesn't work, return within 30 days.Do not get into RMA exchanges with Linksys - unless you enjoy 2 months of 2-3 hours/day trying to get your money back.

2-0 out of 5 stars Completely Disappointed
Review of the LinkSys WET54G bridge point, and WRT54GS router

Completely Disappointed

("two Stars", both for the support, and none for the products)

These LinkSys wireless device both failed utterly. The WET54G was replaced, and the replacement failed identically.

Who will repay me for my lost time, and productivity? Noone.

I have used LinkSys wired devices for years, and have found them reliable. This is why I purchased the LinkSys WRT54GS wireless router and WET54G bridge point despite their higher price, and negative reviews.

I must start by saying that LinkSys gets full points for the fine women and men in India whom they employ as their technical support staff. While I have mixed feelings for the socioeconomic ramifications of the North American jobs being outsourced to India, I must say that the general level of courtesy and expertise was higher than I have ever experienced before. Kudos to India for training such superior technicians who can work so much more cheaply than North Americans. In all, I spoke with eight LinkSys support technicians, and seven of these were from India. The Senior Support technician I spoke to in the end was in California, and he was also most excellent in his demeanor and knowledge.

That said, the devices don't work.

At first, I thought the router (WRT54GS) was working, and that I was experiencing signal drop out on the Bridge point side (WET54G). There was some initial contact, but it faded quickly to nothing. I suspected that the doors between the two points were affecting the radio signal, or that the local airport was interfering. Bringing both devices into the same room didn't help, though, and the airport shuts down at night - removing that as a source of interference. The senior support person I spoke to suggested that my wireless phones (also operating in the 2.4 GHz frequency range) could be interfering with the LinkSys products, but it made no difference when I disconnected them.

The Bridge point (WET54G) repeatedly power cycled itself - establishing a link for a few seconds, up to a few minutes, and then mysteriously shutting itself off, and losing the link. This happened every few minutes forever, and eventually it failed to find the wireless connection at all. It just sat there turning itself on again, and off again. After speaking to several technicians in India, I was advised to have the Bridge point replaced. The replacement failed identically.

No amount of tweaking, configuring, upgrading, or resetting makes it work for more than a few minutes. The failure is unrelated to distance between the nodes, time of day, version of the firmware, temperature of the product, OS of the host machine, or any other feature I may discern. It simply does not work. In fact, the two of them failed identically.

I had thought that at least the router (WRT54GS) was working, but I was wrong.

The router functions (or it's supposed to) as a 4-port wired router with a wireless connection. I was attributing the failure of the wireless connection to the Bridge point (WET54G). It took me a while to suspect that the wired connections to the router were perhaps failing sometimes as well. When I did notice that the configuration web page on the router was sometimes inaccessible through the wired ethernet port, I upgraded the firmware (on the advice of the local senior technician). This didn't seem to help, and in fact I then found that there was a complete failure of the wired machines to ping the router.

Unfortunately, when I re-reinstalled the firmware (guessing that the first reinstall had perhaps failed partially), the wired connection to the host failed in mid-upgrade, leaving the firmware corrupted, and unfixable. (There was no firmware to tell the machine how to upgrade the firmware - a sad state.)

The unit started lame, and died completely. Dead, dead, dead.

LinkSys has offered to replace the units, and to replace the bridge with the more recent version (WET54GV2), but I have declined the offer. At best, the units were sometimes working - transmitting with a 50% packet failure rate, which is unusable for me (and most people, I suspect). I now realize that I will fare much better with a trench, and a buried cable to my garage. Ironically, I had initially opted for the wireless equipment on the notion that it would be quicker and easier than digging a thirty foot trench. That was three painful weeks ago. I am now looking gleefully at the trench as the cheaper, quicker, easier, and more reliable option.

After having been a happy and loyal LinkSys customer for years, I am sad to say that I am utterly disappointed with my most recent experiences.

What a major drag. I am very frustrated. If you need speed, and reliability in your network solution, I strongly advise you to seek another solution than LinkSys Wireless devices

3-0 out of 5 stars Consider the WET54GS5 instead
For just a little more money, the WET54GS5 adds a 5-port switch. Installation could not have been easier, and the unit seems well-made. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The best wheel I could find
I tried the big three xbox wheels out there right now- Mad catz, Pelican, and this one and I really like this one the best.It has the best control, the most well made feel, and works the best with a variety of driving games from outrun2, to burnout 3 to rallisport 2.I took the others back and i am keeping this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Wheel
Works great, makes racing games soooooo much easier. The built in leg rest is also very comforatble.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK, but not great
It makes "creaking" noises when you turn the wheel. The pedals work well. It's very light-weight and lacks substance. The leg-rest adapter is nice. The lack of a rubber coating on the rim is sorely missed.

Not awful, but not good, either.

4-0 out of 5 stars First Impressions of The Logitech Nascar Wheel for XBox
I've been looking for a wheel for the XBox for a while.I have a Madcatz MC2 for the Dreamcast, and was expecting similar performance from the XBox version, so I passed on it.The MC2 is not a bad wheel, but the feel is quite toyish, and the response is tenuous.Thankfully, the new Logitech NASCAR is a more solid wheel, and has better feel, accuracy and control than the MC2.

I've tried this wheel with Project Gotham Racing 2 and Rallisport Challenge 2. Here are my first impressions:

Pros:

1. Typical Logitech build quality: Everything fits together well.
2. Control is precise and accurate.
3. Nice to have the slot for the XBox Live communicator.
4. Adjustable sensitivity is easy to use and works well.
5. Pedals have good throw and spring weight.

Cons:

1. Lap wings are too small for an adult.
2. Suckers do not make up for the lack of a clamp.
3. Wheel is textured, but plastic and not rubberized.
4. Vibration is barely perceptible, even in Rallisport 2!
5. Pedals are small and close together.

I'd recommend it for forty dollars or less. But I'd also advise to hold off for those that are considering the upcoming Fanatec Speedster wheel. ... Read more
