Fairfield Inn & Suites Laramie Wyoming – Hotel Internet Review

I travel frequently for business and as such good internet access is a top priority. For my work, a fast and reliable internet connection is absolutely essential. As such, I make sure to test the connection each time I stay at a hotel and make notes for future reference. Here are the results from my recent stay in Laramie Wyoming at Fairfield Inn & Suites: Ping 18ms Download speed: 1.04Mbps Upload speed: 1.07Mbps Ping times were good. However, for this day and

HP 23xi review (long term review w/reliablity & warranty info)

For the past two years we have been using a number of HP 23xi displays at home and the office. Overall these are some of my favorite monitors. Here are the pros: IPS Reasonable price (~$130 USD when on sale) Energy efficient External power supply (this is nice b/c if the power supply fails, you just replace it… not the entire monitor) Power supplies are readily available (I had two spare laptop/HTPC power supplies that worked fine) Nice looking and

Fuji X100 impressions

B&W photo of the Fuji X100, taken with Nikon D7000., processed in Lightroom 5.3

This review of the X100 comes at an odd time, years after its initial release and in the face of many new competitors. Today you can pick up an Olympus E-PL5 and 17mm F1.8 lens for a price that is in the same ballpark as an X10.  That makes for some pretty tough competition. This review would read a lot differently if this were 2011, but time marches on and this is my view as of Dec 2013! This is

Why I may never (again) buy a Drobo

Drobo = Great Idea I love the idea of Drobo. A storage device that: protects your data, is easily upgradeable, and is dead simple to use. When it comes to the reality I find things less rosy. Before I continue this review let me make note that there seems to be a conspiracy theory out there about negative Drobo reviews. I do not know if the theory is correct or not but many negative reviews seem to be met with
