Pros: Having the printer on Wifi is my favorite feature. I put it in the hallway upstairs. Everyone can print, nothing is tied to a specific PC.
In typical HP fashion, the packaging is awesome, and the instruction are simple and clear (and a lot of thought has been given to the initial setup process, for taking out of the box, etc)
On a Mac, it was surprisingly easy to setup.
- Add the printer to the wifi from the printer screen.
- See the printer magically appear in the list of available printers on the Mac. (system preferences, Print and Scan, Click on the + at the bottom of the printer list. The printer was listed there)
- Select the printer, get a prompt to download the driver/software from Apple software update, say yes.
- Let it install, you are done.
And in the pros box, you can't miss this printer is really inexpensive.
Cons: The color quality is not the highest/most vibrant/most faithful, and the toners are somewhat expensive. But for a "low end model", I'm really satisfied.
Other Thoughts: I was expecting a lot more hassle during the installation (granted, I have no idea how hard it is to install on Windows, so my account is very one sided)
Once in a while, the printer will turn its gears for seemingly no reason, probably just to make sure nothing ceases from staying in the same position for a long time. My wife finds it slightly weird.
There are also a crapload of features I have not explored/do not need, like Internet Printing, and "apps". I have no idea how useful those are.
Also, this printer is quite heavy. I guess it's a good thing. More metal than plastic inside. It feels pretty solid.
This review is from: WD My Book Essential 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive WDH1U10000N
Pros: Next to a computer and 2 other external hard drives, I cannot hear this drive. At all. So I would say it is quiet in operation.
Installation is a snap, as you would expect, with USB2.0. Just plug it in and it works.
Cons: It comes with software on it. Some bundle of tools that are not useful. Google Desktop/Toolbar/Picassa don't add value. It also comes with some bundled backup applications, which are not mentioned on the box -- Because those are 30 day trials. All in all, garbage.
Other Thoughts: Comes preformated as FAT32, which makes sense, but nobody wants that. A quick reformat with NTFS took care of the bundle-ware (aka crapware) and FAT32 disease.READ FULL REVIEW
