Acronis True Image 2015 Unlimited - 3 Devices
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs This is an annual subscription 12/03/2014

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 Unlimited - 3 Devices

Pros: Works well and gets the job done.

Cons: You need to be aware that this product is an annual subscription, so you will need to subscribe every year. The product description does not mention this at all. I found this information buried on the Acronis support site.

Product does not like changes to the setup such as backup location. I stupidly changed the folder name for my backups and spent quite a bit of time getting the backups working.

Gateway KX2153 Abd Black 21.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Pricing
Very crisp and sharp text on screen. Much superior to several year old Dell LCD monitors that they replaced. The Dells retailed somewhere around $400 I think.
VESA mount
Built by Acer
3 year warranty which also covers the LCD/LED panel. Some other competitors have a 3 year warranty EXCEPT on the panel. Of course the panel is the most expensive thing that could go wrong.

Cons: The only one that I can see is that the standard stand that came with the monitor is somewhat flimsy. This wasn't a problem for me as I am putting these on dual monitor stands.

Other Thoughts: Bought 8 of these so far.

The use for these monitors is primarily business related with some graphics and videos thrown in. For general use, I think they are great. If they are going to be used for heavy gaming, I would check out other reviews and sources as I did little or no game testing on these monitors.

Drive Medical Light and Go Mobility Light rtl1100

1 out of 5 eggs Great idea, poor product 02/09/2014

This review is from: Drive Medical Light and Go Mobility Light rtl1100

Pros: Great idea

Cons: My biggest complaint and the fatal one was that sometimes the light would just stop working even though it was moving and I mean I was shaking it to test it after I realized I had a problem. My Dad's vision at night is very poor and to have his light go out while trying to move around in the dark is an unacceptable and dangerous problem.

The switch to turn on the light is a tiny slide switch instead of an easier rocker switch.

Batteries are ridiculously complex to replace: 1) take off the protective cover 2) unscrew the top, then take the body of the device apart.

Rather cheap construction.

In summary, great idea, but the light was designed with no understanding of the target users - the people with impaired eye sight, mobility, balance, etc.

Other Thoughts: Returned it!
