ASUS Desktop PC K30AD-US003O Pentium G3240 (3.1GHz) 4GB DDR3 1TB HDD Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great entry-level PC, for office type work (word processing, web browsing, e-mail, spreadsheets, etc.). The Pentium G3240 is a great dual-core CPU, the PC is quick and responsive. It comes with Windows 7 Service Pack 1, so there is not a four-hour wait for 300 updates, patching Windows only takes 20 minutes. When on sale for $299 it can't be beat.

Cons: There are not many USB ports: 3 USB 2.0 ports on the back, 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front. The card reader on the front is nice, if those are still of any use nowadays. It's one of the trade-offs required to sell this so inexpensively.

Other Thoughts: I've bought two of these as office PCs for very small businesses who don't have much money to spend on PCs. They work well and should hold up well into the future. Asus has a good quality reputation, even in inexpensive products like this.

Tape to PC Super USB Cassette-to-MP3 Converter Capture

4 out of 5 eggs Works Well 08/21/2014

This review is from: Tape to PC Super USB Cassette-to-MP3 Converter Capture

Pros: Small, compact. The primary connection, the USB cable, acts both to power the device and to transmit the sound. Includes the open-source Audacity software, but you can also use Nero or any other recording software.

Has a nice feature that lets you change the direction of the tape play by pushing a button, so no need to take the tape out and turn it around. You can also move a switch to have it automatically play the other side once it reaches the end of the first side. Nice!

Cons: You have to play around with the USB cable to find the optimal position of the device, otherwise you will hear a loud hum on the line. If you stretch it out the hum mostly goes away.

Other Thoughts: Pretty good value, but all this is is a tape player with free, open-source recording software. Still, it gets the job done

Mushkin Enhanced Atlas Series MKNSSDAT240GB-DX 240GB Mini-SATA (mSATA) MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well in my daughter's Dell laptop. Only gets about 230 MB/s read throughput, but that may be due to the laptop's SATA controller, it may only be SATA II instead of SATA III. But still much faster than a slow laptop HDD.

Cons: Not quite as fast as I'd like, but again that may be due to a slower SATA controller in the laptop -- it's very hard to find out what level of SATA controller Dell laptops have.
