Team Color Turn 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Green) Model TG002GE902G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs 2 out of 3 Team drives failed after little use 10/17/2014

This review is from: Team Color Turn 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Green) Model TG002GE902G

Pros: Cheap, free shipping

Cons: Used as LINUX startup drive, maybe 10 times. Mailed to friend who could not get it to work. Neither did I after getting it back.
Reformatting and reloading the LINUX OS does not make it work. When using for simple file transfer some files cannot be read. Reformatting with HP USB tool, does not help.
Unacceptable for Newegg to sell this Brand.

Other Thoughts: Before buying any USB drive, I recommend to look at the one egg reviews, which basically document the failure rate. For Team this is roughly 30%. The loss of money is small compared with the time and data loss. This was a LINUX startup drive, which I mailed to a non Techie friend, who was disappointed. Out of a dozen USB drives I own , some for more than 10 years, only two TEAM drives have ever failed. Stay away from this brand.

No more team products for me

Rosewill RNX-N250UBE - Wireless N300 Wi-Fi Adapter - IEEE 802.11b / 11g / 11n, (2T2R), Up to 300 Mbps Data Rates, USB 2.0 Interface, Two 5 dBi High Power Detachable Antenna
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Was on sale, free shipping, distinguished look like a football goal. Did not get hot. Includes nice USB extension cable with vertical stand.

Cons: Failed after a 1.5 year of 1-2 hrs per day service.

Other Thoughts: I'm left with 2 Antennas and a nice USB extension and stand.
Still 4 other high powered USB adapters which are similarly used by me and my family have not failed in more than 5 years.
Gives me low confidence in Rosewill quality. Similarly a Rosewill modem failed after 2 years of use, while 5 other modems did not.

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.
