Cables Unlimited PWR-LAP-UD120 120W Universal Laptop Charger with Automatic Voltage Selection & 13 Interchangeable Tips
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs didn't work properly with 19.5V/120W Sony laptop 08/21/2013

This review is from: Cables Unlimited PWR-LAP-UD120 120W Universal Laptop Charger with Automatic Voltage Selection & 13 Interchangeable Tips

Pros: Lots of tips. High power rating.

Cons: I have two Sony Vaios that are rated at 19.5V and up to 120W. This 'universal' charger should fit the bill, then. (120W total power, comes with Sony tip(s), and it says that the 19V tip works fine with 19.5V laptops.) However, on both laptops, the touchpad stops working properly when this adapter is plugged in. Weird.

Other Thoughts: I guess it can be handy to have one of these chargers around, but this one is definitely not as "universal" as the specs lead you to believe.

Logitech G710 PLUS USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard- Cherry MX Brown
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs warning for linux users 02/22/2013

This review is from: Logitech G710 PLUS USB Wired Gaming Mechanical Keyboard- Cherry MX Brown

Pros: mechanical switches

Cons: probably doesn't work (without hassle) in linux

Other Thoughts: I was wondering if I would be able to use the macro keys in linux, i.e. whether they were managed in hardware or software, so I started doing some research. In the process, I found posts in the logitech and arch linux forums stating that plugging in this keyboard gives you a stream of '6's in linux. Some people were able to work around this, and others weren't.

Since there was no mention of this in any newegg reviews, I wanted to make sure people were warned. Sure, the description doesn't mention linux support, but when do you need to check that for a *keyboard*?

It's a fairly new product, so it's likely that newer linux kernels will resolve the issue. Logitech isn't even pretending to support anything other than Windows with this, though, so maybe not.

brother DCP Series DCP-8155dn MFC / All-In-One Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs good overall, but beware... 11/29/2012

This review is from: brother DCP Series DCP-8155dn MFC / All-In-One Up to 40 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Fast printing, duplex scan/copy/print, auto document feeder. Scan to thumbdrive. Linux CUPS drivers available.

Cons: 250 sheet input tray, not 500.

Does *not* scan to email as you would expect from the specs. (See "Other thoughts".)

Other Thoughts: This is a network printer that says it supports "scan to email" on the Brother product info page. To my surprise, there was no option on the scanner to do that. It turns out that you need a PC and a USB connection to use that feature; you scan to the PC and then their software emails it. Since I'm using this printer on a network (i.e. not USB), and I don't have a constantly-running Mac/Windows machine nearby to run the software anyway, the "scan to email" feature is not actually available for me.

This printer *is* able to send status reports via email over the network, and can scan documents to PDF on a local thumbdrive, so it seems like the firmware is all that's stopping it from being able to directly send an email with a PDF attachment. I guess memory (128MB) would limit you to a certain number of pages, but you would hit the attachment size limit of virtually any mail server first.
