This review is from: Logitech C615 HD WebCam
Pros: Nice design; small and robust. Fits nicely on my monitor, and because of the way it folds it can be transported easily.
Very simple to set up. Just download the software from Logitech's web site then click the set up file. From there the software does its thing with minimal user intervention.
Price. For the quality of this unit and the extra USB cable extension you get with this package it is very well priced in my opinion.
Cons: Length of the cables are a little short, but with the extra USB cable most people should have plenty of length to work with.
While Windows does recognize the camera once it's plugged into the computer, you still have to download the software from Logitech's web site because it does not come with any CD or DVD ROM. For most this won't be a con, but if you have a slow or no Internet connection then this would be a hassle..
Other Thoughts: From the time I pulled this camera out of the package I had it set up and on Skype in ten minutes. It's a very simple peripheral to set up and use, and the image quality is very good for a $70.00 web camera.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit, and as soon as I plugged the camera in it was recognized almost immediately by my computer. I also don't have any problems or incompatibilities using the software with this version of Windows.
Overall this is a fine package for the money, and I can recommend this web cam with confidence. Thanks NewEgg for another great buy, and fast as usual shipping.
Pros: Speed - Very fast compared to a platter drive.
Package contents - Everything is included in this package, ie: cables, mounting brackets, software. Nothing else is needed.
Warranty - Three year warranty is better than most drives.
Price - Decent for everything you get with this package.
Cons: There really isn't any cons that I can think of except the last time I checked this item was out of stock. Also, the price went down from what I paid for it, but I still got a great deal with all things considered.
Other Thoughts: I bought this drive and installed it as my main boot device in my rig, which was rather easy. To this point, I haven’t used the software so I can't honestly say if it's good or not. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 on this drive, and formatted and partitioned the drive during the OS installation without any hitches. So far, the performance is blowing me away. The time it takes for my rig to boot up has been more than cut in half, and applications launch and run so much more quickly.
I've been working with PCs for more than 15 years, and have performed every hardware/software upgrade imaginable. I must honestly say that moving to an SSD drive from a platter drive is the one upgrade that has given me the most pay back performance wise.
Because of the value and performance I would recommend with confidence purchasing this kit to anyone. Then install your OS on this drive and use a larger, less expensive platter drive for your data. ie: movies, music, etc.
This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M Instant PDF Sheet-Fed Duplex Scanner for the Macintosh
Pros: Very fast, and the duplex system makes this scanner very convenient. Just press the blue illuminated button, and away you go. Also, the desktop foot print is relatively small. Because of this you can put the scanner in a convenient spot on your desk, and reach it to move the paper size sliders back and forth as you need to when you want to scan different size documents.
Cons: The scanner doesn't belong to me, but we use it at work. The software is a little tricky to use, but once you figure it out it's pretty straight forward.
Other Thoughts: We purchased this scanner to replace a great big HP ScanJet scanner that took up half the desktop space, and was probably more than twice as slow. There are several conveniences built into this unit, and the more we use this scanner the more we like it. At almost $500.00 the price tag seems a little steep. But for all the features and tricks this scanner does, even at that price it’s a pretty good bye. This is a product I can recommend with confidence.READ FULL REVIEW
