OkiData MC362w MFP Wireless Color Multifunction Laser Printer

1 out of 5 eggs really unhappy 01/17/2016

This review is from: OkiData MC362w MFP Wireless Color Multifunction Laser Printer

Pros: Tech support based in the US

Cons: I am on my third one.. The first had a bad motherboard, the 2nd the wifi would not fire up and third.. I've gotten about 2600 print pages on one demo cartridge and two full cartridges.. and at least one of the cartridges is set on the lightest print setting.. Initially, they were going to take this one back because of the excessive toner cartridge usage, but changed their mind when they found out I used after market cartridges.. I am so fed up with Okidata. Mine sits at the top of the stairs on a landing and sometimes I wish it would tumble down the stairs. PS These things are heavy to ship back at about 70lbs.. I started out with a MC361, one of the last available.. but it came in damaged.. So I am on my third MC362w but four total. Never again..

Other Thoughts: I would not recommend this product

Seagate Hybrid Drive ST1000DX001 1TB MLC/8GB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s NCQ 3.5

Pros: I have hybrid drives now on (4) of my computers (for the last year or so) and have become used to 1min boot ups.. I had a 5th computer (i3) that took 3min to boot up. The i3 now has the above SSHD and is blazingly fast with a recent boot up of 37sec running a fresh install of Win7. Of course, now the SSHD has 8gb of flash which is pretty optimal.. I also just set up a new Dell 8900 with a Samsung 240 SSD and I am not sure it is worth the trouble (so far). PS took three days to discover MiniTool Partition Wizard which solved the SSD transfer/cloaning issues. MiniTool goes on all of my computers now! PS Always run iobit driver software to get your drivers up to date.. especially after a new install or newly delivered computer.. forget factory. use iobit..

Cons: cons? Nada

Other Thoughts: very fast shipping. NewEgg has always done a great job.
Sometimes, companies just get it right. Seems NewEgg does.
PS They seem to ship very fast without the extra shipping charges

ThinkPad Laptop Edge E531 (68852BU) Intel Core i5 3230M (2.60 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6

Pros: I was not happy with the touchpad on the first unit I ordered. It seemed flimsy but I was living with it though I ended up returning it because it died after delivery to a client in San Diego. (I wonder if the Border Patrol scanned/zapped it at a checkpoint on I-8 as I was driving to SD on I-8.)

Cons: I got a second E531 a few days later (Win7 is important to me) and the 2nd touch pad was much better. Seemed the first one had a sizeable gap between the touch pad and the recess the touchpad sat in which seemed to be a bit sloppy. The second one seemed different with much tighter tolerances. The whole touch pad is still on springs or whatever, but the replacement unit seems much better.

Other Thoughts: I do not prefer the springy touchpad for myself but it can be gotten used to, or one could use a mouse.

All in All, Lenovo does a good job
