OkiData B410D Monochrome Laser Printer
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs DOA, and dead in two days 10/24/2014

This review is from: OkiData B410D Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Cheap price, looked nice and solid...

I have an Okidata microline 420 that is solid and super dependable...so I thought their other products would offer similar competence...

These are very large units and hold a full ream of paper and have a paper tray indicator on the front which is nice...

Cons: Super pricey toner, one was defective out of the box where the lid wouldn't close as the spring mechanism was malfunctioning. The second printed super blurry, and I had to go to the website to download drivers and it finally printed correctly...and then started giving paper tray errors after two days and stopped working.

These are twice the size of Brother 2230s, so plan accordingly for the height.

Absolutely NO features on the device at all. There is no menu. You get several print drivers for the computer, no software. You get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I have RMA's on these, and am trying a second set...but I don't plan on having much success.

They're cheap, so I figure it's worth the gamble. The boxes for these are VERY big, and Newegg expects you to hold onto the box and all shipping packaging if you expect to return them for defects...so be aware. I was only able to hang onto one box, so I'm stuck with going through the manufacturer for support...which I don't plan on doing for a sixty dollar printer. My time is more valuable than dealing with this.

I wouldn't advise purchasing these.

COBRA ELECTRONICS CXT235 20-MILE FRS/GMRS 2-WAY RADIO VALUE PACK
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Not bad for the price 09/22/2014

This review is from: COBRA ELECTRONICS CXT235 20-MILE FRS/GMRS 2-WAY RADIO VALUE PACK

Pros: Small, rechargeable, comes with power supply, easy to use

Cons: Can't leave them on while charging.

Need FCC license to use them at high power.

Low power receives interference...intermittent on some, constant on others (I bought two sets, one of the four individual radios gets interference static bursts on a regular basis, the other 3 do not).

No flat surface to stand them up.

Belt clip is just plastic, no spring tensioners on it...so if you use it on your pockets it tends to fall pretty easily. Definitely meant for belt use only, anything thin and this will fall off all the time.

Have a belt pouch would make more sense with a clip this flimsy, but that's not offered for these.

Other Thoughts: Best bang for your buck if you're using these in an office environment. I only use them at low power, so I can't make any claims about high-power use. Make sure if you plan to use them for high power to get the full 20 mile range, that you plan ahead for your FCC license. Otherwise, if you interrupt police/radio/military bands by accident, they'll probably track you down and slap a hefty fine on you.

Tek Republic TUS-200 2 PC to 1 USB Sharing Switch box between two computers with 2 x 6 ft usb 2.0 A/B Cable
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Simple, no software to install, work right out of the box. Solid buttons, relatively idiot proof.

Cons: Bought 8 of these in December, two just died. They start "reporting problems" in Windows 7 Enterprise, and show up as "unknown device".

Ordering 4 more, to keep two as backups. Hopefully it's not a trend.

Super light weight and will flop around. Plan to fix these in place with double-sided mounting tape of some kind.

Cables are pretty short, so if you're PCs are more than 3 ft away from your peripherals you'll need to get longer cables.

If you're looking for auto-switch, these aren't for you. I wouldn't trust auto-switch anyway.

Other Thoughts: Sure, they're cheap enough and work fine. Use them in an extremely busy office environment to share local printers and local scanners so I don't have to eat up all my desk space for duplicate equipment.
