Xara Web Designer 10 Premium - Download
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs Not As Stated 12/26/2014

This review is from: Xara Web Designer 10 Premium - Download

Pros: 75% off the normal retail is really good. It somewhat does responsive sites.

Cons: Copy reads:

-----------------------------------------------------------------


No Programming Skills Required
Over 3000 Templates
Easily Embed Photos, Video , Music
Publish Anywhere (FTP Upload)
Optimal Display for Smartphones, Tablets

-----------------------------------------------------------------

3000 templates? The copy tends to lead one to believe that there are 3,000 templates "included" .... not so.

Point 1: There are nowhere near that many templates included even if one counts each web page as a separate template. Perhaps someone should explain that a template is all the pages for one site combined. I know, I've downloaded templates before. Also, individual graphics don't count as templates either.

Point 2: The majority of those available templates are "for sale", as in, you have to buy them in addition to the software.

I've used another comparable webdesign software for more years than 10 years, but was lead to believe that this software would allow for responsive design which is not offered by the other company. Yes, the other company sells templates, but they don't count those "available for purchase" as being "included."

If you have to pay extra, they aren't "included" but rather they are "available".

Misleading copy.

Other Thoughts: If the templates aren't "included" then don't say they are.

TRENDnet TV-IP551WI 640 x 480 MAX Resolution RJ45 Wireless N Day/Night Internet Camera
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Cheap ... got it on clearance for $20.00 and it hasn't set my home on fire (yet).

Cons: TECH SUPPORT: Camera had beautiful pic out of box, but even set to record motion ONLY, records 2 frames every 3 seconds. Called tech support to show me where I may have missed something in setting up camera. Their first solution was to update firmware. Ok, that along with the inconvenience of climbing up to unmount the camera and connect to a network cable wasn't too bad. Update the firmware, reset the camera and all is good, right? No Way!!

Now the image is washed out most of the day. I have 12 hours of mostly white images taken at 2 frames every 3 seconds.

No help, multiple calls. Their solution is always reset the camera ... which I am getting tired of doing and in fact refused to do the last time I called. (same tech, same script, of course I should expect a different result)

Other Thoughts: I have actually installed surveillance cameras and DVRs for my employment, but we have not used IP cameras on any of our systems.

I needed a camera to monitor a small portion of my property which has had several attempted break ins. Figured for $20 I'd try an IP camera. This one was just a poor choice on my part. However, it does come with LOUSY TECH SUPPORT.

THRUSTMASTER Ferrari GT Experience Racing Wheel
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Made To Break 11/29/2012

This review is from: THRUSTMASTER Ferrari GT Experience Racing Wheel

Pros: Works well right out of the box. Nice feel, nice performance.

Cons: About 11 months after I got it the left paddle shifter went out, and although Thrustmaster was very quick to mail the parts, I had to do the replacement. Not bad, but would have preferred replacement.

2 months later, the clamp for securing the wheel to the table broke on the right side. So far have been unable to locate replacement clamp or
