This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (DTSE9H/16GBZ)
Pros: I brought this flash drive to install OS's on machines. Was able to install Windows 8 on average ~ 20 minutes.
Built very well. 'Solid' piece of metal.
Cons: Easy to lose... Cat used this as a toy... thought I lost it.
Fear of perhaps 'junk' getting inside USB port.
Other Thoughts: Have not had this issue yet but I don't put this in my pocket. A good spray of compressed air may clear out any carp but something to be aware of.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: nMEDIAPC Black Aluminum / Steel HTPC 2000B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case
Pros: Case is very large and easy to work with. Had no issue fitting any of my parts inside it. This case my be larger than what you need for a HTPC. However it is one of the few good full ATX cases out their.
Cons: As others have stated this case workmanship could have been of a higher quality. Screw holes not quite matching up. You can make everything fit just need to will it into place.
Intake fan makes a clicking noise and is much louder than the two exhaust fans in the back. Brought a new fan have yet to install but again poor quality.
Hard drive bay I can see 4 hard drives easily fitting in. 6 drives? I agree with others heat and GPU may impact how many drives you can install. If you have less than 4 drives you are fine. More than that look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: Just keep in mind the size. This will be by far the largest 'media device' you will have on your shelf.
This is the first and probably last time I will buy this brand based solely on the quality.
Pros: Printer has great image quality but we brought it for scanning. Scanning to machine or scanning from your machine is a great feature. Sometimes machine fights for sharing rights of scanning and vice versa. Restarting the HP app or printer usually clears this up. High quality scans. Did not try ePrint feature yet. Have not found a use yet for it. Wireless feature works as expected. No issues with setup. Found WPA network first try and was able to connect.
Cons: Brought the printer and within a week of buying it we lost power to our home for about 5 minutes. Printer sat on a power strip with 'surge protection' built in. Everything sitting on the power strip came back without a glitch. (paper shredder, monitor, laptop, lamp) The printer however did not. The printer was not printing due the power outage. The cradle holding the ink physically would not move more than 1" left or right. This made it impossible for the printer to print. I tried to reset back to default settings. Tried to move the cradle manually both with printer on and off. Tried to plug it directly in wall in another power strip... Printer kept saying something was blocking path of cradle and or paper jam. Neither of which were true. After many attempts to troubleshoot I gave up and RMA the printer. RMA process went smoothly. $25 shipping charge was to be expected... Entire cycle about 2 weeks.
Other Thoughts: The cradle becoming physically stuck seemed like a unique event. However a restore back to default settings should have restored this functionality and it did not. Nothing on the printer physically broke a restore/reset should have fixed this. Perhaps the power surge fried something allowing the cradle to move freely? Still can not explain it.READ FULL REVIEW
