Pros: Makes labels, Lots of options for label style. color, and durability
Cons: *Wastes an inch or tape per label. But this is true of all TZ tape labels.
*Eats batteries. It takes six AAA batteries. Sitting on a shelf powered off, it consumes them in a month. It turns on, lets you enter the label information, then when you press print, it prints half of the first letter and quits, the display reports "Dead Batt" I only make labels about once a month, and I have to go get SIX AAA's each time I want to make labels. I always turn it off, and I have confirmed that if you leave it on, it shuts off automatically, But still it requires batteries each time I want to make a label.
The cut options to try to save label tape between labels doesn't work. If you want neat labels, bring your scissors and hand cut the leading inch off of EACH label.
Other Thoughts: I love the P-touch line of labelers from Brother, and the TZ tape line looks nice at first till you realize how much label tape you throw away. I would stay away from any TZ labeler. The only reason mine isn't in the trash is because I bought 5 different sizes/colors of label tape, and I wan't to use them up before I throw it away. I just store the batteries out of the unit and it seems to work fine, but becomes more of a hassle to use.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Used these to supercharge some old dell Optiplex 620s. I had a large base of the 620's installed, and I needed to improve performance. These did the trick. The old XP machines ran better than ever. (I know XP is retired now)
I also used one to clone a fresh install to 25 Macbook Airs. Using disk utility from the "command-R" console and having the dmg on one of these in a USB3 drive dock, I restored a 15 Gig dmg in under 3 minutes. SSD to SSD was amazingly fast.
Cons: I had a hiccup with one where the pc wouldn't boot, I t resolved itself. Might have been the PC or the drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Foxconn R20-D2 Intel Atom D510 Intel NM10 Intel GMA 3150 Barebone
Pros: I needed a cheap, reliable file server for my parents. One big drive backed up by carbonite. This thing fit the bill, and has run great for almost 3 years now. It's not the fanciest, or flashiest, but a nice little atom runs quiet. 3 fans in the case, one in power supply, one on Northbridge, and one one the back of the case.
I wish it had another sata port, or took more ram, but other wise, I am happy with it.
Cons: I took one star away because the hard drive is incredibly tedious to get in. I mean its a small case, I don;t know how they managed to get enough in the way to make it so hard to get the hard drive in. It's like they tried to make it more difficult.READ FULL REVIEW
