Bedol BEWC00-24 Water Clock Wink White
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs False Advertisement 03/27/2014

This review is from: Bedol BEWC00-24 Water Clock Wink White

Pros: It is a clock

Cons: IT USES A BATTERY

There is a piece of Zinc in these clocks, you add water, and it creates a battery. Once all of the zinc is oxidized it will not work, and will never work again.

Other Thoughts: I couldn't let them get away with it, this is NOT a hydrogen fuel cell, it is a zinc battery. It is NOT able to be recharged, as adding water will do nothing after the zinc is oxidized.

This company is a sham, and newegg is promoting them on their Flash sales?!

eFun Touch 8 XN800 Black USB 2.0 IR Wireless Touch Pen
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Cheap 05/25/2013

This review is from: eFun Touch 8 XN800 Black USB 2.0 IR Wireless Touch Pen

Pros: Could be used as a signature device.
Might be fun for children.

I felt like it was about as accurate as i expected.

It didn't seem to cause any harm to the screen given its soft brush tip.

Cons: The soft brush tip is probably the limiting factor in its accuracy.

The manual was a very poor translation.
The product came very cheaply packaged given its retail price. The box's descriptions were very... lackluster and poorly worded. If i saw this on the shelf i would not buy it, period.

The device itself is marketed as light, this is true... but it feels... cheap.

Windows 8 is designed for multiple point touch.
You can not zoom, rotate, or make complex selections.
It is difficult to use the various swipes, scrolls, and drags.

This isn't recognized as an actual pen device in windows, it uses its own calibration software that you will need to instal on each computer.

Other Thoughts: I will probably be giving this to a neighbor of mine so he can use it for clients' signatures, for which it does work.

Maybe it could be calibrated to work on say a clipboard instead of the actual laptop screen.

My biggest problem is the price tag on this thing.
It just isn't up to par, it should be aluminum at this price range.

Seagate Desktop HDD.15 ST4000DM000 4TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very low price per GB
189 isn't that bad considering it is 3726 GB formatted, with tax a little more than a nickle per GB.

Solid performance.
For some reason i was expecting the larger disc to be a bit slower, but tested faster than the 1TB Hitachi in my server, as well as the 500 GB WD Blue in my main pc.
Clocking in at 130 MB/Sec using ATTO.

Quiet
Mine doesn't make any real noise at all.

Size
I mean it is the same size as any other 3.5", but c'mon, that's a lot of storage, pretty amazing.

Cons: None really.

Too much storage? Naw..
I will be using this as a backup of the laptop, the main rig, and the current file server... with room to spare.

Boring?
Storage is kind of boring, this is actually about as exciting as it gets outside of SSDs. Maybe Seagate could put some color on the sticker next time?
4000GB could have been like embossed on the rear of the drive, that would cool.

Other Thoughts: Compatibility
I had no problems with getting the drive going, just installed it into the backplane of my:

Then using Computer Management in
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832416443
I found that it was recognized by my motherboard
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813121358
and proceeded to format it for testing.
The disc size was correct, no drivers needed.
