Pros: Easy to open and close, easy to access drive and ensure it is properly connected. The permanently attached wire is a big win, both because it makes it hihgly portable, and because it doesn't fall out, a problem I have with other USB3 enclosures.
Cons: The plastic tabs that hold it together look fragile. The attached wire is great for laptops, but it too short to use comfortably with an iMac. I'm going to try to velcro the unit to the back of the iMac, that might be a good work around. (With an SSD in it, it weighs very little.)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: brother HL-4150CDN Color Laser Printer with Duplex and Networking
Pros: Reliable, inexpensive to operate, good image quality for the price, equally at home on Mac and Windows on the network in a mixed environment. Silent when not printing. I've done nearly 18,000 pages in three years, and have yet to replace anything except toner. The status page tells you how far away you are from needed to replace other components.
Cons: Color images are good, but you can get better image quality from more expensive laser printers.
Supplies are expensive, but you don't need to get them often, so still cheap in the long run.
The printer obstinately refuses to print when it thinks a cartridge is empty, even when actually still half-full, but if you reset the timing gear on the cartridge (it is on the end of the cartridge under the screw-on cover), it will be good for another run. I've typically gotten two runs of the timing gear per cartridge, and part-way through the third run, it's really empty.
Other Thoughts: I use it with "business gloss" paper and get nice quality advertising handouts.
I found it a good idea to get the memory expansion. Before I did that, I would occasionally get "out of memory" errors.
I use it mostly on the Mac.
I haven't found covering the cartridge windows has made any difference in cartridge lifetime.
This review is from: Crucial 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Desktop Memory Model CT12864Z335
Pros: These memories work perfectly, passing all diagnostics, in my ECS 865G-M Micro ATX. I had previously tried a bargain brand, which passed when used individually, but not when all four were installed. These work great with all four slots filled.
Cons: These memories came in a sealed plastic package that was impossible to open with the bare hands, and difficult to open even with tools. You have to be careful not to hurt yourself trying to get the memory out of the package.READ FULL REVIEW
