    "This is ok. It's supposed to upgrade all your drivers all at once. I don't see this as being something better. I'm ok with the regular dvd update that comes with windows. I just prefer standard over all."

    "iFixit is great. I can look up any obscure device and find technical manuals and how-to guides explaining how to fix something. I have an old DVD player which stopped working, and I didn't want to just throw it in the trash and have to buy a new one. I turns out the laser needed to be cleaned, and the iFixit community helped guide me through the process of disassembling the case of the player. I'd highly recommend it!"

    "Once upon a time Microsoft support could get me out off a jam in a matter of minutes, but now days with increased technology and other ways of locating information I'd rather skip that whole process. Virtual agent is like talking to a phone automated system with banana. Just google or bing your question and check out the forums, trust me you'll thank me later."
