Pros: - Excellent FM Signal Strength Clearly Drowns Out Distant Signals
- Syncs Quickly
- USB Port for Simultaneous Charging
- Bright Easy to Read Frequency Display
Cons: - Heavy
- Poor Bluetooth Operation
Other Thoughts: It may be that the one I purchased is simply defective, but it has an issue with the bluetooth glitching randomly for just a fraction of a second. It pauses and disrupts the rhythm of music playback very slightly by very noticeably. It's bad enough that we simply don't use it for music at all, but I have taken to using it in my work truck to listen to talk radio streams for which the problem is not noticeable. As this has happened with both my Android phone and my wife's 6 Plus, this is clearly an issue with the receiver.
We may try ordering another one for the music playback in the vehicle we originally got it for, as I have not seen other reviewers mention the bluetooth glitch and ours may just be bad luck.
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.)
