This review is from: Lot 5x Touch Screen Stylus Pen for Motorola BH5X Droid X2 Verizon Silver
Pros: Very inexpensive.
Cons: On my Motorola Droid Ultra, this stylus tip is too blunt (it's like touching the screen with a soft, round ball rather than a more concise tip). As such, my (large) fingertip is no less accurate. I've thrown this cheap thing away; useless. Save your money; don't buy.
Other Thoughts: This was a waste of money.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: High security; good value. After applying a firmware update (obtained after 4 email rounds with Kingston tech support; see below), the drive works great.
Cons: After receiving this product I found it wouldn't allow access to the encrypted volume; same result on 2 different Win7/x64 computers. After I provided detailed information about the problem, Kingston tech support suggested various fixes; none worked. I finally RMA'd drive through Newegg; rec'd a new replacement. But same problems... Another couple rounds with Kingston tech support; their final suggestion: "try latest update for the drive" (they provided a password-protected link to their FTP site for the updater). After downloading & installing, drive works perfectly. My gripes (and the reason for knocking off two eggs): a) Why was this drive shipping with 3-year-old firmware? b) Why doesn't Kingston readily post all firmware updates (I certainly checked their website for such, but not publicly posted); and c) Why did it take 4 email from them before they suggested the updater? This wasted lots of my time, & Newegg's time, and postage $$. Sheesh!
Other Thoughts: I normally never post product reviews on Newegg, but I always read the many helpful reviews others have posted prior to buying. I suggest to those who've bought this drive that if you have problems, be sure to email Kingston tech support and ask for the updater (file name DT4000_Updater3006_Win3012HIDi_Mac3012.exe) before wasting your time with other troubleshooting efforts; might save you a lot of time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: Very roomy; well thought-out; a delight to use for full-size ATX mobo. Great finish.
Cons: Manual is awful (but not really necessary anyway). Stock fans are mediocre at best. Upper tool-free mounts (for odd's) are not what I'd want to use, but they do supply screw holes so you can go ahead and screw your drives in (which is what I did, so no worries).
Other Thoughts: I recognized before buying this case that I'd want to yank out the stock fans and put in my own choice (PWMs where appropriate; lower rpm fixed-rev fans elsewhere; etc), and that was a good choice, imho. There's room for two 120's in the top, but case comes with just one top fan (a cheap 140). I recommend replacing it with two 120 PWMs or low-rpm fans, in part to enhance airflow but also in part to plug up the void space which would be a possible "air loop" if you don't install a 2nd top fan. Overall, this is by far the nicest case I've ever built a system with. Highly recommended.READ FULL REVIEW
