GOM player is one of the best looking media players for Windows because it has a nice looking futuristic design. I like that I can also download new themes for GOM to change the theme/skin design for GOM player to make it more unique and personalized like other programs like Google Chrome which let me change the theme of the browser to a custom design theme instead of using the default theme.
GOM player is also a very fast media player when I use it to open video and audio files in Windows 8, and GOM rarely crashes, or slow down my PC when playing back video files. It is also easy to use since the play, stop, next file, and other media playback buttons, are found on GOM’s program window.
Belkin Conserve Power Switch is a useful switch you can use to make sure no vampire power is used by your computer to run things like the LED lights on the back of your computer, and to show that power is on for your PC. You could save a few dollars by not using Vampire power, and you use no power when the Belkin Power Switch is OFF.
You can also use it to stop your computer or laptop from turning on when it is hibernated or shutdown when it shouldn’t be on when your computer is off. It can also prevent other people, your kids, and pets from turning on your computer by accidentally pushing on the power button on your computer or laptop.
The Belkin Conserve Power Switch is also easy to use like a light switch, and I like the modern and minimalistic design.
Classic Shell is a great program for bringing back the start menu back to Windows 8, so there is less or almost no learning curve upgrading from Windows Xp, Vista, 7, to 8 when you use Classic Shell in Windows 8. It is also possible to set Windows 8 to boot to the Windows classic desktop with classic shell.
Classic shell also installs a toolbar in Windows Explorer to make it easier for you to delete, copy, cut, paste, and make new folders from Windows explorer toolbar like the toolbar found in Windows XP and below.
Medialinks 802.11N 150Mbps wireless router is a great wireless router for a home. After a month of using this router it still works great. It is fast enough for streaming HD video on YouTube, and playing online games wirelessly when connected to this router. I also never had to reboot it since installing it in my home.
