ASUS USB-BT400 USB 2.0 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Straightforward setup and easy to use 04/02/2016

This review is from: ASUS USB-BT400 USB 2.0 Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter

Pros: Great value for the money and worked.

Cons: The only con that I can think of is that you have to download the latest driver from the Asus website, but honestly that is installation 101.

Other Thoughts: My primary use of this device was to transfer files back and forth between a computer and a smartphone. I did not use or test any of the other Bluetooth functionality.

I had purchased a more expensive brand of Bluetooth adapter by Kensington, and every time I tried to select the files to transfer, it hosed my Windows Explorer.

The only surprise I had with this BT adapter was that the file transfer did not see JPG files which is how my pictures are stored after the initial install. However, applying the latest driver update fixed this issue. I did not count off for that because I consider this step part of a standard installation.

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.
