940SH in Vancouver Review

•May 12, 2010 • 2 Comments

I got a Sharp 940SH a few months ago so by now I’ve gotten a good idea how how well it works over here in Vancouver. Standard keitai rules apply, see the guide for more info on that. Also, it’s a Softbank phone, so standard multimedia unlock rules apply.

Laying out for the build.

Laying out for the build.

I build a new computer every three or four years since by then the previous computer would have been hard-pressed to keep up with the newest things. For this build, I upped to the i7 generation with a 920; for the immediate while anything else would be overkill. Along that line, I paired it with 6GB of DDR3 and a Geforce GTX285, as well as a nice shuttle bare-bone comes with the x58. The computer that it replaces is a mutt that I’ve upgraded every now and then.
