This review is from: Case Logic Black 18" Laptop Case Model VNC-218
Pros: This was a good price for a decent laptop case, for someone who is not a "road warrior". A 17" Samsung laptop fit fine, with room for the AC adaptor. Lots of pockets to store and carry additional item, like a small mouse.
Cons: Not as rugged as others, but for the price, there are no complaints.
Other Thoughts: A friend needed a laptop case, so, since he's an older, retired gentleman, I told him I'd check them out. After looking in the local big box stores, I opted to order this one, based on the reviews comparing this to the 17" model. I'm glad I did, since he only needs it to take to the local lake vacation house from his primary residence.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I bought this on a sale to take to a friend's vacation home. Not having a good signal where I live, I took it to another location, where another friend let me connect it to another TV. It worked great. Neither of us had any idea he could get about 10 channels over the air - we thought maybe 4.
Other Thoughts: Given that I live in a valley about 30 miles from the nearest "city", I was unable to pick up any stations over the air, which was expected, since there are hills all around. At my friend's house in the "city", as I mentioned, it worked fine. I'm hoping for the same results at the vacation home.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silicon Power Ultima U03 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP016GBUF2U03V1K
Pros: Cheap - that's about it.
Cons: Write speed is very slow. I extracted a ZIP file to this and noticed it was rather slow. I connected a Sandisk to the other front USB port and started the extraction process to it, when the SP was 44% complete. What amazed me is that the Sandisk still finished first, and it was another 2 minutes before the Silicon Power completed.
Other Thoughts: I have had this USB drive for quite some time, and this is the first time I thought to do a real world test.READ FULL REVIEW
