ThinkGeek THG-00094-C Portal 2 Sentry Turret 4
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs I don't hate you! 03/27/2014

This review is from: ThinkGeek THG-00094-C Portal 2 Sentry Turret 4" LED Flashlight with Sound

Pros: I love this little thing. Calling it a flashlight is a joke, but it is fun. I lives on my desk and has brightened many a boring work day (yes the review title is one of its comments, so NO this is a relative product review, not a Hate statement in violation of the guidelines).

Cons: It is tiny. The "flashlight" is about the size of a large pin. The legs aren't too stable. I mistook the antenna on the head as packaging and ripped part of it out. I'd like to see a larger version.

Other Thoughts: I thought this thing had died many months ago because it stopped talking when you click the talk button. I found out that if you turn on the "flashlight" for a few seconds, it recharges the speech center, and it will talk a few more lines before you need to "recharge" it with another few seconds of turning the "flashlight" on.

PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Nice 119 GB Drive Overall 03/27/2014

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: Seems to be fast, 3.0, and a ton of storage.

Cons: Uses the cheat that many less scrupulous companies do by calling a billion bites, a GB, but such a GB is NOT a Giga-Byte. This drive may have 128 billion bites, but it only has 119 Giga-Bytes of storage. Not a major issue but took off a star for the bad faith.

Also, while the slider may slide up to encapsulate the connector, the slider isn't a full cover, it is more like a protector from bending or snapping the connector, not from gunk getting in or on the connector. Even "closed" the connector is open to debris.

Other Thoughts: Also, this drive comes formatted to FAT file systems, I would change that as soon as I get it to NTFS or exFAT as per your preferences. NTFS is a bit more compatible if you are not sure.

5 out of 5 eggs I don't hate you! 11/28/2013

This review is from: ThinkGeek THG-00094-C Portal 2 Sentry Turret 4" LED Flashlight with Sound

Pros: The same annoying Turrets that keep trying to kill you in Portal and Portal 2, getting to look at you on your desktop. They give a little light and fun chatter (Such as "I don't hate you." and "Dispensing Product").

Cons: They are rather costly for their size and quality. They are quite small.

Other Thoughts: One thing I have noted as MT turret's life is ending. His voice slurred, and then stopped entirely. But I found if I turned on his light for a few seconds, I got a few more threatening phrases out of him! :)
