This review is from: Maclocks Black iPad Space Kiosk - 101B224SENB
Pros: These work great. We use them at a College for survey kiosks. They hold the iPad securely and don't feel cheap (we've went through various models looking for the right one). Users have access to everything they would need in the type of environment we're using this in (Power and volume buttons will be blocked, so keep that in mind). Comes with optional home button block.
Cons: Definitely overpriced, but as for what's available, these are probably the most reasonable. Would be nice if it had rotation built in so you could move from a portrait display to a landscape display without having to open the kiosk and remount the iPad holder.
Other Thoughts: We've been using 6 of these for about a year. We've had several instances where people have attempted to pry them open without success.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RDCR-11003 74-in-1 USB3.0 3.5" Internal Card Reader w/USB Port
Pros: I build a lot of computers, from high-end gamers and powerful CAD/CAM workstations, to economical email stations, and there's always one thing in common...they all want a card reader, and most want USB 3.0 on front. I've used a lot of different brands, and a lot of different models, and this is the best I've found so far. I've not had any defective (ordered more than 10) and haven't had any problems, and the price is right. One of the few that just needs a USB 3 header to plug into (surprisingly many need multiple different style headers). Fits attractively into the front of every computer and case I've used. Even includes a silver bezel to fit different color schemes, though I've yet to use it.
Cons: Nothing that I've found.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: A PEN Touch 8 XN800 Black USB 2.0 IR Wireless Touch Pen
Pros: Does turn any (up to 17" screen) Windows 7/Windows 8 computer into touch screen. Calibration is fairly accurate. Price isn't bad for what it does.
Cons: This is pretty much a gimmick. From the receiver that has to be mounted to the monitor, to the pen with a paintbrush tip, everything seems to be sub-par. The receiver has to be mounted in exactly the right spot or the calibration will be off...it has to be exactly centered on your monitor. Also requires a semi-permanent metal strip to be stuck to your screen bezel (can be taken off, but you have to leave it on if you want to use the device). Receiver is also pretty bulky, especially if you're going to use this on a laptop. Also has to be plugged in via USB cable...would be a lot nicer if it were wireless. Pen has a paintbrush type tip instead of rubber, which just doesn't seem to work as well. Entire thing just feels cheap and gimmicky to me.READ FULL REVIEW
