This review is from: Rosewill RLFL-11003 3W 220 Lumen Heavy-Duty 3 D-Cell LED Aluminum Flashlight
Pros: I echo most of the previous comments. Brightest flashlight I own. Construction feels solid.
Cons: The on/off switch is the only obvious weakness. Exactly as other reviews have noticed, when the light is on, any light pressure on the switch shuts it off. It acts and feels like a flaky switch, close to failure. With a better switch this would be an easy 5-egg product.
Other Thoughts: I can adjust the beam somewhat by unscrewing the head. Don't know if that's the design or just a side-effect of the construction.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The SSD itself works great so far. Win 7 boot time went from 42 to 15 seconds. Initial Firefox launch from 26 seconds to 5 seconds.
Cons: The migration software was useless to me. I have a multiple logical drives on the hard disc and wanted to move only c: to the SSD. The software just won't do it. It's the whole disc or nothing, and if the SSD won't hold the data on all your logical drives, you're just plain out-of-luck. You must find another way to clone the c: drive to the SSD. More $$$ is you don't already have something.
Other Thoughts: The migration software was worse than useless, as it installed automatic startup services on the computer. So after being no help, it hangs around and uses up your machine resources. Why does a utility you use one time push its tentacles into the OS? When you're done cloning the disc, uninstall the dang utility!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tripp Lite VGA + Audio over Cat5 Extender Kit (Transmitter + Receiver) B130-101A
Pros: - Easy to install.
- Does a good job sending the video+audio to the remote end.
- Handy video and audio passthrough connectors on the computer end.
Cons: - A little ghosting on the remote picture.
- Remote video not a sharp as with digital transmission, but probably about as good as can be expected otherwise.
- Power supplies required on both end of the link.
- The remote display's EDID is not supported by the link. In my case, this is actually a pro because I can set the screen resolution to what I want, instead of what Windows would otherwise allow.
Other Thoughts: The only reason for not giving a 5-egg rating is the slight ghosting on the remote picture. The image looks the same with a short patch cable connection, or through about 100' of cat6 wire with a patch panel in the middle. If I'm more than a few feet from the tv screen the ghosting is a nit. If the TV is used as a monitor for serious text reading, a digital link would be better. For casual browsing or looking at photos and videos, this product does a great job, and the easy installation is wonderful.READ FULL REVIEW
