HGST Travelstar Z5K320 HTS543232A7A384 (Part#: 0A78603) 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Low price, high space replacement hard drive for a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop. Paid Fourty Nine Dollars with a promo code on Aug 8 2012

Cons: The SATA power and data connecters taper oddly resulting in difficulty connecting to laptop on board receptacles.

Other Thoughts: So here is the deal with the inspirion 1545. The stock Toshiba fail 9000 drive that came with the inspiron has square tipped metal connectors on the SATA power and data tabs (the L shaped connectors). This Hitachi drive has tapered ends that terminate in a narrowing point that fades into the tip of the connector. That narrowing/depression results in it coming just short of reaching the Inspiron 1545 drive receptacle. The solution is to NOT attach the drive to the guide harness and carefully lower it in to a vertical laptop (hard drive opening up) Then you line it up and push the drive into the connectors. Then slide the drive tray in around it. You will notice the screw holes on the bottom of the laptop will reach the drive and help hold it in place. I was not able to attach the drive to the tray and get a connection.

BELKIN Easefit Armband Black / Limelight Case for iPhone 4/4S F8Z850ebC00
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Caution...Arm Band will come unglued 07/19/2012

This review is from: BELKIN Easefit Armband Black / Limelight Case for iPhone 4/4S F8Z850ebC00

Pros: It's on sale for $9.99

Cons: So there are 2 caveats to this armband...You need big arms (not good for women) and the velcro is glued to the strap not stitched so your sweat will get in there and soften the glue until it just tears off the band and is useless...It's a very poor design.

HitchMate QuickCinch 1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Light But strong...great for anything that needs a quick tie down 04/04/2012

This review is from: HitchMate QuickCinch 1" Wide x 21" Long Velcro Straps (10-Pack)

Pros: So i bought these to help secure bikes to my bike rack on my car...I got sick of tying knots w/ the straps..
They work great. The are very strong and could probably hold a person suspended from a bar....

They are easy to use and story and work like flexible carabiners...Use them to attach things to back packs or belt loops..or to secure stuff to your roof rack

Cons: I don't know how long they will last...
