Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs I wish I wouldn't have waited so long to purchase this... 11/15/2014

This review is from: Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Electric Duster, White

Pros: This is more powerful than canned air - and this doesn't lose power as it is used. You can do as many computers as you want though your arm may get tired as this thing is not a lightweight and you'll need to clean the filter. I've now cleaned 6 computers with this (one of them twice) and I'm so happy that I finally broke down and got this.

Cons: The only negative about this is that it does get warm as you use it. After doing a full cleaning on 3 computers in a row it will go from warm to hot. That's a price I'm willing to pay given that I could only ever clean one PC at a time with a can of air.

Other Thoughts: I knew about this product for years, but I hesitated. In retrospect, I wish I wouldn't have waited. I had used canned air since my first PC cleaning and I assumed it was enough. I hesitated at this when I saw the price. This vacuum (which by definition is not a vacuum, but a blower) does cost approximately 10 times what a standard can of air costs. I neglected to take into consideration the cost of canned air over the course of a year (never mind numerous years). If you sit near your computer and you use it regularly it needs cleaned at least semi-annually. If you use several PCs regularly this will pay for itself in a year.

It's worth noting that this is made in the USA (at least at the time I purchased it in 2014). I don't mind spending the money for something well built that's not made in China. In fact, if I had known that I would certainly have purchased this sooner.

Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Good BD-Rs for not much money 09/17/2014

This review is from: Vinpower Digital 25GB 4X BD-R 50 Packs Disc Model OQBDR04LT-50

Pros: After purchasing my Blu-Ray burner I needed media to burn onto, but that field is pretty wide. Thankfully I grabbed these discs. They are not at all costly and they have burned perfectly so far. All of my discs have been burned on Windows x64 systems (two different systems). I use Pioneer BDR-209DBK in one system and a Pioneer BDR-208DBK in the other. I burn my discs at 2x speed

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Between the discs I have burned (about 80 thus far) and those that my friends have burned (about 100 on two different PCs) there have been no issues.

ORICO 6629US3-C USB 3.0 Dual Bay 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SATA Hard Drive Docking Station with Stand Alone Clone Function
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: When it worked properly it was adequate, though those times were very few...

Cons: This was easily the worst dock I have ever used. The first time I used it I noticed that the speeds were slower than I was accustomed to with my other USB 3 docks. It was faster than USB 2, but not as fast as it should have been. I noticed that it didn't like some of my older HDDs, the transfer speeds for an old M*xtor and an old W*stern D*igital were about 30MB/s, which is exactly what I get from a USB 2 dock that I use and about half of what I should get from those drives. About the fastest that it would transfer was 75MB/s, which is not great for a SATA III 7200 HDD over USB 3. The other (far more serious) issue I had was random dismounts. There's nothing more frustrating than having a drive dismount in the middle of a Blu-Ray burn. This dock refused to stay mounted for anything from file copies to disc burns. The dismounting was completely unpredictable. It dismounted 4 times in a half an hour, and another time it stayed mounted for nearly 4 hours. It didn't seem to matter if there was one drive in or two, it behaved erratically (and performed poorly) in all cases.

This case was tested on a Windows 7 x64 system and a MAC running 10.58 with similar results on each.

Other Thoughts: I never got the opportunity to try the cloning feature. If I can't keep a HDD mounted to my computer I wasn't about to trust it to clone drives. I purchased this at a local store (not Newegg) and as such I had to return it within a week to get my money back. I wanted to give it every chance so I worked with it every way I know how, but nothing I did changed anything. I suggest avoiding this dock. Spend the extra money and get something that works. In the end that's what I had to do.
