DELL Inspiron 15 (i15RV-8526BLK) Notebook Intel Core i5 4200U (1.60GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Latest-gen (4th-gen) processor
Ample RAM for many tasks
Ample storage for many uses

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A simple check of Intel's web site would reveal that this is, indeed, the latest-gen (4th-gen) processor.

Some further research would help one to understand that this is an ultra-low power, or "ultra-book" processor which is the reason for the lower clock speed.

I think it's great that people try to inform others about a product, but some prior research/understanding and also an accurate assessment of one's technology level are reasonable prerequisites for doing so.

Laplink PCmover Professional - Download
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs It should work 01/03/2014

This review is from: Laplink PCmover Professional - Download

Pros: Program runs as expected
User interface is good.
One out of four attempted migrations from XP to 7 x64 did complete.
The three failed migrations did not completely mess up the target OS
The undo Migration feature works well

Cons: Three out of four attempted migrations from XP to 7 x64 did NOT complete and had to be undone.

Other Thoughts: I have previously used this to migrate XP to XP and, for the most part, it was great.
The current version might be just as good if the OS and/or bit (32 or 64) matches between source and destination OS. But my experience with these XP to 7 x64 attempts was 1 for 4.

As documented, anything that requires activation is likely not going to simply work without further action or even reinstallation.

This time, I had a fresh install of a fully updated Windows 7 x64 installation, on a number of (nearly) identical, new and clean machines as the targets; the sources were XP machines.

The first three systems I tried to migrate would not complete the process after the finalizing reboot. Instead, I the computer booted into the Windows Recovery Environment and rolled back the system to the prior restore point. The Undo Migration feature then took care of the rest of the data and the system was back to where it was before the migration was attempted.

I was, therefore, pleasantly surprised that the fourth migration actually completed successfully.
The AOL client program and, more importantly, its data, did not transfer. I had to copy the AOL data from the All Users appdata folder on the old computer to \ProgramData on the new computer.

Bluetooth Headset w/ Android Application Support (HM7000)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Good Headset; case could be better 05/18/2013

This review is from: Bluetooth Headset w/ Android Application Support (HM7000)

Pros: Great range
Clear Audio
Carrying case

Cons: Difficult to remove from carrying case

Other Thoughts: Contrary to another reviewer's post, there IS a Micro-USB port on the headset itself.

The issue of the difficulty in removing from the case is as follows, at least for my Galaxy S III. When I remove the headset from the case, I hold the call answer button while doing so. Nothing happens if the phone is standby.

If I do remove it while a call is coming in, however, then I have to make sure to not inadvertently double-press the button as this will hang up the call. The single press answers the call, which is okay if not ideal.

A button to release this headset from its carrying case would be much preferred.

The ear bud alone without the ear hook is sufficient for me for use in the car. For jogging, though, you probably would want the hook, which I have not bothered to try.
