Esky HG-981 Remote Control HDTV Outdoor Antenna UHF VHF 22-38 dB 360 Degree Rotation with Motor Rotor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very High sensitivity, two TV outputs, long cable, able to receive 3TV channels from transmitter > 60 miles away with antenna indoors

Cons: Antenna not very sturdy, has to be handled with care. Probably will no last too long outside, especially where exposed to snow, rotates fairly fast, slower rotation would make it easier to find maximum signal. Rotation reverses only after completed 360 deg rotation, again difficult to find maximum signal, unless TV or converter box has signal strength indication.

Other Thoughts: When antenna is out of sight directional adjustment is difficult, however I use mine with a converter box which has signal strength indication. Able to receive digital TV station 60 miles distant at max strength. Some reviewers have a problem with the rotation mechanism malfunctioning after some time, but I rotate mine manually. Though some what flimsy, antenna-wise the design is good. Antenna only works if amplifier is switched on. If the amplifier ever burns out, antenna could be connected directly, but that would involve soldering.

Team Color Turn 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Green) Model TG016GE902G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Low Price, solid feel

Cons: Bought 2 , one quit working after only moderate use. Computer says write locked in Win XP and Linux. Tried Virus Scan the drive and even re-setting Win KP registry with no avail. Cannot write to or format drive

Other Thoughts: Bought maybe 20 USB sticks over the years, this is the first one ever failed

Manufacturer Recertified OCZ Vertex Plus OCZSSD2-1VTXPL30G.RF 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low price. Definitely faster than regular SATA drives, although have not measured. Fits Ibm R60 Thinkpad laptop perfectly. Loads and runs Linux faster than any other computer I have.

Cons: none, will monitor if it lasts long term

Other Thoughts: Have difficulty loading windows. XP seems to format the drive and load, but on reboot, it does not proceed to XP, just cycles reloading the bios. Same effect on 2 different computers. Tried FAT32 and NTFS and Gparted but no avail. Since Linux is running flawlessly, there must be something specific in preparing the drive for XP which I'm missing. Guess others must have had similar problems, returning the drives and thus making this refurbished offer possible.
