Plustek eScan A150 Sheet Fed Document Scanner
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Must have for small office 05/01/2015

This review is from: Plustek eScan A150 Sheet Fed Document Scanner

Pros: What a great product. Easy to use, easy software, apps that work! I’m actually pretty impressed. Fast scanning with text, articles, receipts, forms, etc. On par and maybe even slightly faster than my Fujitsu ScanSnap s510 (which is older, but still a work horse), great foot print too! This thing will not take up a lot of room on the desk! The interface is beautiful and well thought out. I really like that, easy to navigate and understand. Having an easy to use menu will make you actually want to use the device. Scanning from the network (wired and wireless) work GREAT! Nice and fast and the client application is light and does not use a lot of resources. EVERY small business owner should have something like this. It will make your life that much easier. The display! It’s great, easy to read and nice and bright! I like that. The ADF worked fine for me but I never really had more than 15 pages to scan. I was sending typical paper print outs from my laser jet. No jamming or binding. I also had pretty decent results when scanning titles and checks. I had one check feed weird and that made the scan look strange, but no other issues. I cannot begin to explain how nice it is to be able to scan a document and send it right to your phone or via email to someone. This thing is a MAJOR time saver in the small to medium business world! It will also make you more organized too, being able to archive receipts and registration cards, stuff like that!

Cons: The price keeps this thing limited to small business use. I can think of a number of home users (some personal friends of mine) that would want / could use something like this. But I do not think that they would get the most out of it. Scanning can take time depending on the amount of color and how the DPI is set, not really a surprise, but do not expect this thing to blow through a color scan like a high end scanner that you would find in an enterprise workplace. Warranty is only one year. This makes me sad, I know that it is more of a “retail” thing, but a device like this should carry more warranty life. I don’t really remember off the top of my head, but, I do know that other companies that make scanners like this have an upgradable warranty, which might be good to have if you are going to be doing a lot of scanning... But honestly, if you’re scanning more than the duty cycle of 1500 per day, you’d be looking elsewhere anyhow…

Other Thoughts: The one thing that I noticed right away was the documentation. I honestly did not have an issues setting this thing up, or figuring things out, but there will be people that think that the documentation is not that well done or even inexistent. Luckily the PlusTek website is VERY easy to navigate and has everything that you would need; docs, drivers, etc. So… Do yourself a favor and if you think that you’ll be buying this thing, head on over to the site and download the small 5.5MB user guide to check things out and see for yourself how easy this device is to use and how intuitive it is. Plastic cards, like drivers licenses and credit cards can also be scanned with this machine and they come out GREAT! Just make sure that you load the embossed face of the card up and remove the pad module before you load the card to scan. This is really a nice feature to have if you need to scan media like this. You can also do simple document editing on this device. It works, not the best, but you can do simple things which is nice. Flipping documents, adjusting brightness, cropping, etc, work pretty well and are time savers if you just need to get that scan quickly out to someone. I really liked that feature! Duty cycles seem pretty good with this scanner but only time will tell how long of life I will get out of it. I really think that this device will live a long life if dust is kept out of it (so when you are done using it, cover it with something) and not scanning documents with fibrous paper, you know, the cheap stuff… To get the most out of this device I REALLY urge you to read the documentation from PlusTek’s website. But shame on them for not including something in the box, a quick start guide is not good enough for most people and for the price you would think that there would be some kind of decent book to read... But other than that, this is a solid device for the most part and I REALLY like it more than my ScanSnap and I think you will too!

HGST Deskstar NAS H3IKNAS40003272SN (0S03664) 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great NAS hdd. They are fairly fast and run pretty cool even with the 7200 rpm spindle speed. Good amount of Cache memory as well. HIGH MTBF, these drive will last a while people! Make sure that you get a hdd with a good warranty and high MTBF!

Cons: Honestly, none that I can think of. The price is good here on the Egg!

Other Thoughts: I didn't order these from the Egg.... My boss did from a different place that our company has an account with, otherwise we would have got them from Newegg. The price was only a dollar different. These drives have been replacing LOTS of failing 3TB Seagates. We were unlucky to get the 3TB drives that have been failing for almost everyone out there. This is a solid replacement however and we'll be using them long term. I'm sure that if anyone out there is thinking about a decent drive, this one is worth a hard look. Good performance, price and most importantly warranty, aka, they BELIEVE in this drive... Good luck on your quest to keep your junk safe!

  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: : When I took this board out of the box, I was impressed immediately. The build quality (typical for Gigabyte) is excellent and well thought-out. There are LOTS of SATA connectors, M.2., SLI/Crossfire support and DDR4! I REALLY like the color scheme of this board and if you are someone that has a case with a window, this thing will look great! I was able to get my hands on an i7 5930K, 32GB DDR4 and 4GB video card (NVidia GTX780) and look out!! This thing just destroys games! Far Cry 4 never looked so breath taking! If you are a gamer, or do any sort of 3D design, this board, with a fast CPU and decent video card will OWN anything you can throw at it! You know what else I like about Gigabyte, they give you good stuff. I noticed that this board comes with a SLI bridge to keep a 4 way video card setup nice and stable. All the included stuff seemed well made and not cheap. I like to call the I/O panel “on board the world” since it is STACKED! USB galore, Audio, PS2 (legacy) LAN, optical! (great included driver/software with the Realtek audio). I honestly still can’t get over the storage capabilities of this board, I mean, 10 SATA 6Gb ports that will do RAID and support different trim commands with SSD! I wish I had a PCIe M.2. SSD to test that out…. If memory serves, that is good for 20Gbps! I was happily surprised how well my Samsung SSD did with installing Windows 7, less than 15 minutes start to finish! Also want to note that it is nice to have the diags LEDs and switches right on the board for testing / installation support (most goof MFGs come with stuff like this now-a-days). The uEFI BIOS was nice and easy to use too. If you never have seen one before, it’s much cleaner and mouse driven. Most people that have not seen it before are a little shocked, but everything is there, you just need to look for what you need. Over clocking was easy too. I’m not a big fan of over clocking, but I was able to change a few things to get my 3.5 over 4GHz easily. I was also using a Corsair liquid cooler. For what you are getting, the price is right with the motherboard.

Cons: No wireless option, a board like this should have included it, even though few might actually use it. I still think a high end board would have something like that. While I REALLY dig the orange colors on this board, it might not go well with other components… Most people might not care, but others may… Honestly, there isn’t too many “cons” with this board. It’s a great motherboard!

Other Thoughts: : I’ve had this motherboard in full operation for almost one month and I never had one issue. No lockups or slow downs, no issues with sleep mode or coming out of it, just a stable and solid motherboard. I have use LOTS of Gigabyte motherboards over the past 5 years and they are most definitely my “go to” motherboard maker. They just build a solid product and have a GREAT 3 year warranty. I don’t even recall a time in which I had to RMA a gigabyte product. I will continue to test out more games with this board and I know that I’ll continue to be pleased with the results! I’m looking forward to GTA5 and I know that with a setup like this, I’ll have a GREAT experience. If you are looking for a good price / performance motherboard for gaming and moving up to LGA2011, this is worth a hard look!
