Link Depot HDMI-6-MICRO 6 ft. HDMI Standard to HDMI Micro Cable M-M
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

2 out of 5 eggs Does not fit my Kindle Fire 02/04/2015

This review is from: Link Depot HDMI-6-MICRO 6 ft. HDMI Standard to HDMI Micro Cable M-M

Pros: This cable does not fit my Kindle Fire HD or my Galaxy S4. The discription does not say it would fit my Kindle Fire or mt Galaxy S4. But a review from Patrick H says..

Cable Works
Pros: I used this cable to connect my kindle fire hd to a TV to stream video. I works prefect for this use. What I get on the screen is a clone of what is on the kindle screen.
Cons: None
Other Thoughts: I was pleased that my kindle detected the cable and there was no setup required to use this cable.

Cons: It will not fit the Kindle Fire HD which I just received for Christmas. The plug is to narrow and fat. Unless they changed the connector since the review was written.

Other Thoughts: I am sure its a great Mini to standard HDMI cable

WD BLACK SERIES WD5000BPKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I purchased a 500 gig Western Digital hard drive and tried to clone my old laptop hard drive using the FREE Acronis software option. Well let me tell you..
Oh, the WD hard drive is a GREAT DRIVE and I got a great price from Newegg..

Anyway, the clone part is where everything went wrong. Since you can only put ONE hard drive in a laptop at a time I found a Laptop hard drive USB docking station and thought I had it made till I tried to down load the Acronis Clone software. Since the WD hard drive is in a docking station the Acronis clone software didn't see the drive. So it told me YOU MUST HAVE AT LEAST ONE WESTERN DIGITAL hard dvive in your computer to load this software. So I called WD support. they told mt to put the new drive in the laptop and boot the old C driver in the USB HD docking station. No go. It word start to boot the restart over na dover again. So I down load a trial version of the Acronis Backup software. I activated the trial version and tried to clone the new drive. I could not fine a selection for cloning, So I called Acronis for help and in the Con section you can see first had the help I received, Basically you need to buy the full version of Acronis if you have a laptop. If you have a PC then you will probably be okay. But beware the laptop clone.. As it aint happening!! Well for free as advertised. Although they did appreciate my feed back.

Cons: Suresh: Hello! Thank you for contacting Acronis Customer Central. My name is Suresh and I will be glad to assist you. Please allow me 3-4 minutes to review your message. If you already have an existing case number on this issue, please let me know. Otherwise, I will create a new case and provide you the case number.

You: okay

You: version 11.5.38929

You: I do not have a case number

Suresh: No problem. I will create a case.

You: I bought a WD 500 Gig drive

You: I have a laptop

Suresh: Give me 3-4 minutes while I create a case and provide you the case number.

Suresh: Thank you for your patience.

Suresh: The case number for your future reference is 02271790.

Suresh: As I understand, you wanted to know how to clone the drive. Am I correct?

You: I have the new WD drive connected to a USB docking station and plugged in to my laptop. I want to clone the C drive in my laptop to the new WD drive in my USB drive docking station it using Acronis Backup. Is that possible? I have read in the help area that it possible but I do not see a CLONE button feature.

Suresh: Yes, Can you go to console and towards left you will find an option called "Disk management"

You: I see that

Suresh: Click on "Disk management" and select the drive. Right click on drive and select clone.

You: that's not an option

You: I have format, change lable, change letter, mark as active

You: I would be done already if that were an option. Is there something that I need to do first. just installed a trial version because I bought a WD hard drive and tried to down load the clone software but because the WD drive is in a USB drive docking station I was not able to down load the software. So I am now trying to do it with the Acronis Backup

Suresh: As I could see, you have a trial version of Universal restore and with the trial version, cloning is not possible which is a trial version limitation.

You: I only bought a WD drive for that feature

You: It was avertized that I could

You: I have a laptop so it is not possible to put both drives in it at the same time

You: I have tried to boot the C drive in the USB hard drive docking station but it will n ot boot up that way

You: So I can't clone my drive?

Suresh: Yes, that's right. Cloning function is not possible with trial version.

You: Well that should be stated on the WD web site

You: It was the reason I purchased a drive from them

You: Was the promis to be up and runningin no time

You: Instead I have spent hours now I find out no one can help me. WD sent me to Acronis for a solution

You: and Acronis solution is sorry??

Suresh: If we had an option to perform cloning definitely, I would have helped you. Since it's a trial limitation, we couldn't perform. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

You: Okay I am going to Newegg website and letting everyone know about how great WD and Acronis is...

Suresh: For this, you can create a backup and perfo

Other Thoughts: Wasted a lot of time!!!

WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Screen goes white and needs to be reset 11/13/2013

This review is from: WD TV Live Media Player WDBHG70000NBK-HESN

Pros: Great unit when it works.. Plays just about everything! If it would just stop what I call white screening.

Cons: White Screening.. This unit is fantastic... However; it does what I call white screening.. Thats is your watching a movie from a shared storage drive on your PC and al of a sudden.. Bang.. Wite screen of death.. Kinda lokks like the old TV screens when they went off the air in the old days.. We call it a snowy picture.. Anyway, it does not do it all the time. It is not perdictable. However reading other reviews people are saying the unit is heating up. I will check to see it thats whats hapening to mine. I will place a fan blowing on it and see it thats the issue. Onces it white screens the unit must be totaly powered down by unplugging the power transformer and then plug it back in. It roo boots ant d then it fine.

Other Thoughts: I love it. Netflicks works fine but I don't watch nearly as many moves thay way so I have not see the white scren of death.

I am also going to try one more thing. I have everythig plugged into my 100Meg Full duplex verizon router. I have a 1 gig mini switch I am going to hook everyting to it then connect the mini switch the the verizon router.
