SanDisk Cruzer 128GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ36-128G-B35
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Very slow write 06/10/2015

This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 128GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ36-128G-B35

Pros: Sandisk has a history of reliable memory. Read speeds are typical of usb 2.0

Cons: Very very slow writes. Other reviews have covered it, but writes are from 5-10MB/sec depending on file size. This is using USB 3.0 ports on a Windows 7, I7 computer.. ......somewhat glacial.

Other Thoughts: Inexpensive storage for 128Gig, and reads are in the typical 20's MB/sec, but to write you have to walk away and come back later........So for bulk storage that is not written to often or with large files (but hey this is 128Gigs) it is a good tool.

IOGEAR GCS932UB 2-Port USB DVI KVM with Audio and Mic.
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Works great for a while (audio) 06/03/2015

This review is from: IOGEAR GCS932UB 2-Port USB DVI KVM with Audio and Mic.

Pros: Works great to switch two computers with one monitor....

Cons: Audio had problems about a year ago. Sent back under warranty, and now audio does not work and it is a couple weeks out of the 3 year warranty....

Other Thoughts: When I called with the history they provided troubleshooting - unpower and disconnect everything then power up in a certain order.....After doing that and even updating firmware, still no go.....Then they said, so sorry out of warranty......
So I bought another because when it works, it works great....

Intuit TurboTax Deluxe Federal 2014
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

1 out of 5 eggs Better software out there for less 01/15/2015

This review is from: Intuit TurboTax Deluxe Federal 2014

Pros: Has the same interface as previous years. Forms or interview and switch back and forth with ease. If you spend more money Intuits profits go up and you get the same capabilities you had before (that is the pro for Intuit)

Cons: Intuit has taken away features and forced you to spend $30 more to buy Premier for what Deluxe used to include. Specifically, No interview or efile support for dividends or capital gains. Small business capability less than before. You can workaround the dividends and capital gains by using forms, but then it will not efile....Printing and mailing is the option. Is this a good business practice? Why not just raise the price? Their descriptions and explanations are convoluted, but when you find in the process of fillling out your return you cannot do what you have with Deluxe as in previous years, they will allow you to upgrade...for a price......

Other Thoughts: There is the other big accounting firm (H&R) software that Newegg sells, and their Deluxe does what it did previously, and what Turbotax Deluxe used to do. It imports old Turbotax files, and is consistently reported to work as well. Better in some ways in terms of downloading from financial institutions....I bought TT Deluxe, upgraded, but am downloading and filing via H&R (free if you have purchased TT 2014) as a matter of principle. Intuit is too arrogant and obfuscating..I had spent hours just trying to do what I had in the past with a simple mutual fund sale, then more time understanding the changes.....Check out Wall Street Journal article on this subject.
Very irritating....
