This review is from: MOTOROLA Bluetooth Keyboard for All Android Smart Phone & Tablet (89451N)
Pros: Inexpensive and reliable.
Cons: Construction seems flimsy.
Other Thoughts: I use this keyboard paired with my Nexus 7 tablet and seems to work pretty well for that. I only had to pair it once and it automatically re-pairs with no trouble whenever I want to use it.
I think it's pretty decent bang for the buck if you don't mind the compactness and somewhat flimsy feel. You won't be confusing the quality of it with something like the Apple Bluetooth keyboard, but this was also half the price.
Pros: This power supply is very quiet and efficient for lower power systems, but it holds enough in reserve to run a pretty solid rack of hardware.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: I chose this PS as a replacement to a 10 year old 350W supply made before 80 Plus ratings and power factor correction were common specifications. Without making any other system changes, I measured performance back to back with the old supply and found that with my system being always on, the cost savings at current rates is about $10/year. So with a sale price and rebate, this power supply actually pays for itself in under 3 years with the money saved.
Older non-PFC supply consumption at idle: 75W with a PFC of just 0.61.
Silencer consumption at idle: 62W @ 0.98 PFC.
The numbers are even better at higher load.
Bottom line: If you don't need more power but your existing supply is not 80 Plus, this PSU will save you money.
It is also best not to buy a PSU that is significantly oversized beyond your needs, as despite the 80 Plus ratings, efficiency actually drops. (Like driving a dump truck around just to move a TV.)
This review is from: 331 Mini Military RC Gyro Helicopter
Pros: One stable heli that is great for kids well under 14 years old; more like 8+ as well as 40+. ;)
It has been very durable, lasting through hundreds of mishaps and probably close to 100 charge cycles. Like any heli however, it will break eventually. I only just had to re-solder the battery on today, but we have had it for two years!
It is terrifically stable and fun to use indoors with a relatively fast charge time for 4-5 minutes of flight time.
Cons: Of course there are some cons to go with the pros, but what do you expect for this kind of money?
This heli is absolutely worthless outside in ANY kind of wind. It needs to be dead calm.
Short list of failures:
- Flybar pin came out. We fixed it with a small piece of wire bent on each end.
- Horizontal tail fin came out and got lost. It now drifts forward slowly instead of a perfect hover. A little tape for ballast would fix it, but we like the boost to forward speed.
- Battery looseness broke wire. Soldered back it back on, but after two years, it's getting tired and needs to be replaced.
I have yet to find direct replacement parts for it anywhere. The 100 mAh battery is nowhere to be found, though Syma 107 blades and batteries may work.
Other Thoughts: For the money I spent on this heli and the abuse it has taken, I would buy another in a heartbeat - if only this one would totally break.READ FULL REVIEW
