Foxit PhantomPDF Standard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Very poor user interface 04/11/2014

This review is from: Foxit PhantomPDF Standard

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Awful user interface. Shows half screen vertically at startup and has to be resized EVERY TIME, extremely annoying. Won't save changes in preferences, so it cannot be customized in any way. Vendor support Web page has a major glitch, cannot submit a trouble ticket. Etc., etc.

The program is not usable to me in its default configuration, so I have not tried the PDF creation functions.

Other Thoughts: I was using their free Reader application and after some effort was able to customize the user interface so that it is usable. No such luck with PhantomPDF.

The program has all sorts of "features" such as PDF reading, "Trust Manager, OCR, etc. But these are essentially useless because the basic program interface does not work.

Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Just wanted a USB headset 01/30/2012

This review is from: Microsoft LifeChat LX-3000 USB Connector Circumaural Stereo Headset

Pros: Works OK

Cons: You have to install the piece of junk Microsoft "chat" application to get it to work. My daughter does not want to "chat", she wants a USB headset to listen to music and to record training material.

This is like having to install Microsoft Office to use a mouse. Utter nonsense.


Other Thoughts: Typical Microsoft nonsense (I had a better term but Newegg censored it). Arrogance and contempt on parade.

NCH Software Express Burn Plus Disc Burning Software for Windows
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Do not buy! 12/09/2011

This review is from: NCH Software Express Burn Plus Disc Burning Software for Windows

Pros: Works OK, nothing special, especially nothing to offset the copy protection horror.

Cons: Worst copy protection scheme in history! You are allowed ONE installation on ONE machine, no re-installations on same machine, no transfer to new machine, NO, NO, NO, no nothing. If you allow the program to download the latest version, your old version is history and they want you to buy a new license. Etc., etc. I can't imagine worse.

No support, even if you have paid for it.

I could go on.

Other Thoughts: The idea that a company would be so punitive towards their customers in this day and age is simply unbelievable. I wish they were a US company, instead of Australian, so I could file a FTC complaint.
