Hey folks does this thing really works? This SpyderTV. The home page of this gadget clams. " Dramatically Improves the Picture on Your Home Entertainment System " Is this true? Any users here have tried or own one of this thing. Here is the link for those that don't know what I'm talking about.

Let me know.

Just got my SpyderTv yesterday and ran the calibration on a Panasonic 50" plasma and a Sony 36" standard definition CRT. The process took around 30 minutes on each unit.

The difference between before and after was stunning. I thought I had everything set up well, but I was quite surprised. It's available on Amazon for less than 200 bucks. I really believe it was money very well spent.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
