Etekcity 8380 Lasergrip 774 Digital Infrared Thermometer with Laser Sight
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Compact, nice feel in hand, good D:S size, ability to toggle back light and laser, well written instructions

Cons: Accuracy, repeatability (yikes!)

Other Thoughts: I have several IR thermometers. This unit is calibrated 1-2 degrees F high depending on surface emissivity. Repeatability also lags; point at the same object twice under ideal conditions and get readings that differ upwards of a degree. I suspect the 12:1 D:S ratio is part of the problem along with barrel design (narrow opening). Given the price point the pros outweigh cons; just don't expect high accuracy/repeatability. Might pick up another to see if I got a bad sample.

Hisense H5 Series 40
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs Respectable 10/11/2014

This review is from: Hisense H5 Series 40" 1080p 60Hz Smart TV 40H5

Pros: Nice picture, good selection of ports, acceptable sound, feels solid, runs cool, serviceable remote, sturdy stand. No observable motion blur on broadcast TV (eg: sports)

Cons: Horrible 'smart' functions; slow to respond and dated in appearance. Frequent freezes. Poor viewing angles. Picture quality varies depending on content (best with sports, not so hot on darker scenes). Takes several seconds to power up; Hisense logo displays during this time.

Other Thoughts: I vacillated between 3/4 eggs; settled on 4 given the price point. Inferior picture to my 5 year old mid-range LG plasma - especially with darks/blacks. Not offensive but doesn't 'wow' either. Current generation of LCD/LED panels are noticeably better. Fixed stand, no rotation option. Barely adequate manual with limited feature descriptions; looks like it was produced on an office copier. Smart functions are useless; Chromecast and Roku to the rescue. Glad for the 3 HDMI and 2 USB ports (for power). Well packaged, fast shipping, arrived in 'like new' condition. Easy to assemble (attach base) with clear directions. Everything about this set suggests value/discount which isn't necessarily bad given aggressive price point and intended application. This pup is going in basement for occasional guest use so don't mind the shortcomings. If this is a primary TV and your wallet permits you'll probably be happier with a model a few notches up.

CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs Perfect for Nandroid Backups 10/06/2014

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager GO 32GB USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive Model CMFVG-32GB-NA

Pros: Tiny size, solid build, metal enclosure (feels durable), fast read speeds off standard USB port, plug and play for USB OTG devices

Cons: Slow write speeds on both USB and micro-USB ports

Other Thoughts: An excellent drive with tons of versatility that is marred by slow write speeds. Attractive metal case feels great in hand and helps to dissipate heat. Markings on one side help with orientation (great idea). I use this pup to store/browse multiple nandroid backups without consuming internal storage. Speed on the micro-USB port is as expected given it is USB 2.0 which matches the standard on most Android devices. Read speeds on the USB 3.0 end are impressive (often topping 150Mbps) which allows quick offloading of the drive. However, as reported by others write speeds are capped around 20Mbps so it takes awhile to load. Not a deal breaker but knocked off an egg as it impacts productivity for me.
