Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs A good buy! 07/27/2012

This review is from: Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White

Pros: This pushes a lot of air - far more than most canned air. I wound up dusting all my PCs, as well as my room and ceiling fan with this. It's also good for cleaning the coils in a window-unit air conditioner.

Cons: It gets hot fast - it got uncomfortably hot after about a minute of sustained use. Also, there's no gasket between the upper and lower parts. This results in a lot of air just squirting out the sides of the can. I deducted an egg, since this is something of a design oversight. I fixed the issue by removing the top, wrapping some electrical tape around the lip of the canister, and re-attaching the top.

Other Thoughts: There's a sponge filter on the bottom. This thing sucks a lot of air in a short amount of time, so you should clean it after every use. Just pull it out, clean it off, and stuff it back in.

Scythe DFS123812-3000
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Sweet fan! 07/27/2012

This review is from: Scythe DFS123812-3000 "ULTRA KAZE" 120 x 38 mm Case Fan

Pros: This fan pushes a lot of air! Case temperature dropped ~10C as a result.

Cons: The fan itself is thick, so be careful putting this in if your case is already tightly packed. It's also pretty loud. I'm not deducting an egg for these, because I read the reviews (you can also look up video reviews to see how loud it is) so I knew what I was getting in to.

Archos - 101 Internet Tablet - 8GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501590)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Great hacker-friendly tablet 12/01/2011

This review is from: Archos - 101 Internet Tablet - 8GB Running Google ANDROID + Wi-Fi (501590)

Pros: * Great screen resolution
* Bluetooth + wifi for maximum connectivity (later firmwares even allow you to tether your tablet to your cell phone for internet access!)
* Well supported hardware makes development a breeze!
* Full USB port allows tablet to server as USB host device (with software mod)
* Easy "iPad-like" touch screen is painless to interface with
* Sturdy kick-stand
* Good battery life, even under heavy use

Cons: * Live wallpapers (which seem to be all the rage) are somewhat of a resource hog
* Camera is grainy, low-resolution. Please note that this is a front-facing cam which Android 2.2 does not always allow apps to access
* Comes with 2.2 when most devices these days have 2.3
* Archos probably will not release Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for gen 8 devices like this. But this is more speculation than fact, they might after all...
* Screen is somewhat dim compared to most devices, even at full brightness. This could present visibility issues under direct light

Other Thoughts: * Updated to fw 2.4.80
* Installed UrukDroid 1.6RC4 (upgraded from 1.5) - please note that this involves installing the Special Developer Edition firmware from Archos, which voids your warranty
* The default market, Appslib, is somewhat out of date but contains a ton of apps for tablets. Install Arctools from Appslib to get access to the Google Marketplace, for the most bleeding edge software
