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.

This review is from: Jobar JB6606 Easy Push Hammer
Pros: Good nail starter for many surfaces.
Cons: Does not push nails all the way into wood or any other reasonably hard surface. Wood tested was not even hard wood but pine.
False claims about its capabilities insofar as I was concerned.
Other Thoughts: I thought this was too good to be true, so I half expected that this device would not live up to the claims made.
However as a device to start a nail, it works fine. You will need a real hammer to finish the job.
Pros: I have tested several USB 3.0 drives over the last several weeks and this is one of the fastest drives for the money. I had tested Team, Patriot, and Silicon Power flash drives along with the poor excuse for a USB 3.0 flash drive, the entry level Kingston (100 G3) which is barely faster than a Kingston USB 2.0 drive.
The case is very, very solid. I was tempted for a moment to run over it with my car to test it, but figured any damage might not be covered under warranty.
Activity light is very visible without being overly bright.
The sliding outside case mechanism is a plus in my view. I don't like caps because they are easy to lose, and internal sliding mechanisms with a button seem to break or get loose after a period of time, which means you have to hold the button down to insert the flash drive.
The key ring is solid metal, so I will be surprised if it breaks.
Finally, the metal case is very resistant to fingerprints, smudges, etc. Some of you may wonder why this is worth mentioning, but my fellow polishers will understand....
Cons: The plastic inside case is a white color which may get dirty in time. It would have been better if the white was a gray color for example.
A big large and heavy at 1.2 oz, but that has not been a problem so far.
If you use this in tight quarters or on a notebook, you might have an issue due to its size. I did try it on several notebooks and netbooks in the office without an issue.
If you have two USB ports very close together, you may not be able to get 2 USB flash drives in. If the two ports are 9mm or further apart (side to side), you have a very good chance of being able to use both ports.
Other Thoughts: It would be very helpful if Newegg was consistent in listing features of like products. For example, you will notice that on some USB flash drives, any mention of speed is omitted, so it is much harder to compare apples to apples.
I think Newegg is big enough to tell vendors here is the questions we want answers to before we list your product.
