This review is from: Logitech Harmony Touch Universal Remote with Color Touchscreen, 915-000198
Pros: but this sadly is one of those things. I wish I had bought the brand new one so I could return it for a refund. Beware of that return policy on refurbs, which I was aware of when I decided to take the risk here
Pros: ... have to think for a minute...
- It's rechargable, and the battery life seems decent (note I said seems)
-Less than a brand new one (thankfully!)
Cons: -Battery life indicator seems to bounce quickly from full power, to like a quarter of life, with no in-between.
-Touchscreen is quirky, frequenly paging left to right, instead of clicking on the channel you're trying to change it to
-DVR controls are HORRIBLY located at the top, instead of down below. The control is not ergonomically comfortable to click the DVR button all the way at the bottom and then slide your hand up to the middle to click the top buttons. It's seriously terrible.
-THE WORST THING about the remote is that it has constantly froze up on me. It wouldn't back out of the help menu, and the swipe function button that you often accidentally click is super annoying to try and stop (like making it accidentally rewind your DVR show). I had to plug it into the laptop to re-sync it (which also takes forever btw), until I had enough and contacted tech support to complain. Tech support informed me that if you hold the power button down for like 7 seconds, it will perform a hard shutdown from which you can power it back on, similar to Windows. Yay... that fixes the issue but it's still annoying to have to do.
Other Thoughts: I can't say how much I dislike this. I hope Logitech sees the ills of their ways with this remote and stops production of it, in favor of a more "Logical" layout of the buttons.
The touch screen idea is cool, but it's not very good in application because of the paging issues. I do like the fact you can set the icons of the channels and just click on them, and that it also automatically hits the enter button after the channel number to speed up the changing, but that's about it.
The firmware update I got a few days ago will hopefully alleviate the freezing issues, but it won't alleviate the terrible button layout/lack of ergonomics for the DVR shuttle functions, or the lack of accuracy of the touch screen button pushing. It's simply not comfortable to hold and doesn't do what you want it to, far too often.
Freezing issues aside the remote is still not a winner, on it's best day. Regretting buying this, big time. Enough to post this review to warn others.
This review is from: G.SKILL 16GB microSDHC Flash Card Model FF-TSDG16GA-C10
Cons: Died on me. Been using this card for about a year and my mistake in not backing it up recently and I lost some very important video, like stuff of my daughter learning to walk and memories I'll never get back.
Using in a Galaxy S4 for about the past 4 months, and had it in an HTC EVO 3D prior to that for about 8-10 months and everything seemed fine til one day my phone randomly just said "SD card isn't formatted" or something like that. Didn't have it maxed out at all... probably only used about 7GB or so. NOT happy to lose all the baby stuff. The music and random other pics are no biggie, but the baby pics are gone. Put in the adapter and plugged into the PC and it wouldn't even show up as recognized. Sprint repair center said they couldn't get anything off it either.
Other Thoughts: Love my G-Skill RAM which is why I took a flyer on this card, but apparently they should stick to what they are known for... or at least I should stick to the known brands for any given type of tech. Lesson learned. Buy the known commodity and BACK YOUR STUFF UP!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Syma S107 Mini RC Helicopter Metal Series with Gyro (Blue)
Pros: Metal, as opposed to plastic body
Cons: Lost connection to remote after only about 3 falls. Only goes up, no other directions work
Other Thoughts: Glad I only paid $23 for this. This is my 2nd copter (not the same one, just my second one I ever bought) and it seems that they don't make the circuitboards strong enough to handle hard landings.READ FULL REVIEW
