Rosewill RHSP-13007 Rotating Power Surge Block, 180° Rotating 12-Outlets, 2-in-1 Power and Circuit Breaker Switch, 4230 Joules - Retail
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Wonderful for plugging in all those oddly shaped wall warts that cover multiple outlets on straight power strips
Power cord length is what all such things should be
Seems well made and durable

Cons: None really. If you only need a three-foot cord then the extra length can get in the way. Life is hard, eh? The worst part about electronics is all those dang wires!

Other Thoughts: Very useful on an electronics bench where you never have enough outlets and often need to plug in 2-3 power cubes just to get one project started. Or in your PC corner where you have the same problem: 2 monitors, PC, USB hub, camera charger, phone charger, printer(s), ethernet switch, blah blah blah.

ASUS Google Nexus 7 FHD (2013) Android Tablet - 2GB RAM Quad-Core CPU 32GB Flash (Wi-Fi Only)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: * good price for refurb
* 32 GB of flash - seems like a lot
* Android store has really expanded
* speed of tablet seems great, use is very "fluid"
* quick WiFi connection, dual band
* BT works well with external keyboard
* feels nice in the hand
* fantastic 1920x1200 IPS screen: great res, colors, and viewing angle
* GPS seems more sensitive than 1st gen
* Sound from built in speakers is quite good - better than expected.
* Immediately updated to 4.4.2
* This is one of Google's Android reference platforms, so you can count on update support for a long time

Cons: * doesn't fit 1st gen cases. Why do they make arbitrary changes like this?
* wish it had SD slot, but few of these tablets do

Other Thoughts: This replaces the first version of the Nexus 7 which I have used for over a year. The screen is gorgeous. Overall size and weight are nice. GUI feels instantaneous and very fluid, it's a joy to use. Topo maps, Google maps, and aviation charts are easy on the eyes at 1920x1200. Breezes through all the apps I have tried. Watching a 1080p YouTube music video (KEXP London Grammar) shows just how good the screen is. Got the Devicewear Ridge case, which works and fits well. Wolfram Alpha graphics look super on this. I was scared off by high instance of failures when this V2 tablet was first released, hopefully they are long fixed by now. So far so good on this one. Plan to take on several trips and use topo maps and GPS.

ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Works great - after updating all video drivers 03/30/2014

This review is from: ASUS Black 12X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 12X DVD-RAM 8X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA Blu-ray Burner BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS

Pros: Plays BR movies fine on new HTPC build

Cons: None so far. Have not tried burning yet.

Other Thoughts: Not really a con, but built a new HTPC, installed drivers from recent DVD included, all was well until I tried to play a BR DVD using Nero 12 Platinum, latest version. DRM issues. At least Nero directed me to AMD website where I downloaded and installed a slightly newer version of graphics drivers and finally could play a Bluray disk. And why can't Windows include Bluray player ability? Why do we have to pay another $50? Not the fault of Asus I know.
