This review is from: NUANCE PDF Converter Professional 8.0
Cons: Using this software to fill a PDF form is an exercise in frustration. The free Nitro PDF Reader does a way better job.
Other Thoughts: I tried to fill an application which was in PDF format. Nuance would not let me position the cursor in the line in which I wanted to type. Then I noticed that at the end of previous line, there was a CR/LF character (essentially an ENTER key). I had to move that to the next line (by positioning the cursor at the character and press ENTER key). Then I could type on the next line. The typing became impossible when there were several of these characters because of frames. The cursor just would not move to the next line. I gave up in frustration. Nitro PDF reader allows me to type wherever I want.
The second use I wanted to have was to combine PDF files to a single PDF. The PDF files had a combination of scanned pages. The pages printed in landscape were also scanned as portrait and that is how I wanted to keep them. After joining the files, Nuance converted the landscape pages to portrait thus messing the layout completely. I did uncheck the option to disallow automatic re-orientation but it still did it. I finally printed the documents to Nitro PDF reader PDF printer and appended the files together. No issues.
The third thing I wanted to do was insert scanned signature. Nuance does not have a way to manage signatures, Nitro PDF reader has this feature.
When editing large documents (I was working on a 28 page PDF, 488k) and software kept becoming unresponsive. My laptop is quad core processor with hyperthreading, 8 GB memory and SSD drive.
I had high hopes from this software but I was disappointed.
This review is from: Rosewill RX81U-AT-25A Rigid aluminum 2.5" SATA to USB 2.0 Ext. Enclosure
Pros: The drive was a very snug fit without any issues and worked right away. The carrying case and the USB cable are good.
Cons: None that I can think of.
Other Thoughts: After an hour of intense read/write activity the enclosure did get a bit warm but nothing to complain about. The enclosure material is good and the carrying case is a nice added bonus. I like this product. Nowadays it is hard to find something that works right of the box.READ FULL REVIEW
