Pros: Fan pretty quiet on high, nearly silent on low and still seems to move enough air to keep a laptop cool and should use very little power. Can be turned all the way off if not needed. We mainly needed it for the speakers anyway, were not having laptop overheating problems.
The price seemed reasonable with the rebate being offered at the time when we bought this one, paying back half of the total cost (if/when we get it)
Cons: Volume controls (and fan) on back (you can just use the volume adjustment in whatever player your using).
Speakers point out and away from the side, not directly to person using / watching the laptop.
Rebate said it can take 10 weeks (2 and a half months) unless you pay $2 for rush processing.
Other Thoughts: I can't comment on durability yet, we just recently got it. If treated well it looks like it should hold up.
The sound is much better than the laptop speakers. My wife watches movies and shows on her laptop and as these laptops get thinner and lighter, each new model is quieter and sounds worse than the last. That has apparently opened a market for products like this, a new product to solve a problem that didn't use to exist.
The first time you plug it in, give Windows a minute to install it as a usb audio device. This dosent have an aux input or blue tooth, so it wont work with a tablet, Ipod, mp3 player, etc..You may need to goto the audio settings in windows and set the output to usb audio. Also, if you using a player like XBMC, you may have to goto it's settings and change the audio output from your default audio device (like speakers, hd audio, realtek audio) to the usb audio device too.
This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 810 16 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive - Green
Pros: Fast read speeds
Cons: Slow write speeds, I would give it 5 stars if it was a bit better here.
Other Thoughts: I get an average read speed of 80MB / second on simple file transfers on a Win 7 desktop or Win 8 laptop. Peak speeds have hit 92MB / second.
On a usb 2 port it reads right around 32 MB/ second, about the max for the bandwidth available.
Write speeds are slowish, 12-13 MB / Second, on a usb 2 or 3 port.
Pros: Didnt find any
Cons: Didn't work at all, not 1 page.
Other Thoughts: Toner light stays on with either cartage.
There is a small white rotating catch on the side of these toners noticeably different then the real tn-450 in our machine. It's not telling the printer there is a new toner installed.
