Pros: VGA port, 2 USB 3.0 ports, power port, price
Cons: none really
Other Thoughts: I have this model except for a different CPU. This is a budget laptop and is not super slim or light. I like the fact that, in addition to HDMI, it has a VGA port so you can connect to an older monitor. I really like the solid power port. The typical laptop ports with little round connectors were too easy to break for a klutz like me and a nightmare to get fixed. One memory slot is open and it is very easy to get to, just remove 2 screws in the battery compartment and slide the bottom cover forward. The speakers sound fine to me, considering this is a
laptop, but I'm not a discriminating audio guy.
This review is from: Emerson 4.5 Cu. Ft. Compact Refrigerator Black CR519B
Pros: Got this to send back to college with my kid. I ran it for a few days and seemed to
work just fine. It has a good finish and feel, i.e. seems to be well made. 4.5 cu. ft is pretty roomy and will hold a lot of stuff. There is no real freezer compartment so it isn't suitable for storing frozen foods for any length of time. At the higher settings it is capable of making ice cubes.
Cons: I bought this at Target as an ad special for $99 brand new. Don't know why it was
so cheap. The energy usage card on the unit says that it is at the top end (high cost of operation) of the energy usage range for its comparison group. One word of warning from Target was that if you tip the unit on its side or invert it, don't turn it on immediately. Set it up and let the refrigerant drain back down for an hour or so before plugging it in. I doubt a full hour is necessary but what can it hurt?
This review is from: StarTech USB2106S USB to Ethernet Network Adapter
Cons: Didn't work for my specific application. My Chumby One did not recognize it. The Chumby is usually setup to connect wirelessly. However, some wireless security setups require a special additional authentication that the Chumby was not designed for and so a USB-ethernet adapter is required. Not all work.READ FULL REVIEW
