Pros: rugged/water resistant, built-in lens cover, features, ease of use
Cons: picture quality, heavy, large/clunky, ugly design
Other Thoughts: All Olympus tough cameras are a compromise, they're relatively rugged but the photos aren't great. When left in Auto mode, photos are way too contrasty - shadows/dark areas are almost black with little, if no, detail. Bumping up the exposure in Program mode helps with shadow detail but washes out light areas. High ISO settings yield extremely grainy pics, so it's not good at night.
If you absolutely need a rugged camera and like the ease of use Olympus offers, you get the same photo quality and similar ruggedness with the less expensive tg-630. The tg-630 is also smaller, lighter and better looking, in general.
Pros: long wireless range, quality construction/materials, good size, SetPoint software
Cons: needs batteries, turn off both keys/mouse nightly to extend batt life
Other Thoughts: Good price for what you get - materials and construction are relatively impressive. Full size keys (w/ number pad). Keyboard, mouse and dongle are portable. Wireless range is fantastic and never drops the signal.
Free/downloadable SetPoint software is excellent and, imo, mandatory.
Dislike the need for batteries in both and I never remember to turn them off at night in order to extend battery life.
This review is from: BYTECC SATA Adapter SATA to IDE Converter For Drive
Pros: Automatic driver install
Fast data transfer
LED tells you it's working (as if you didn't know)
Cons: sloppy construction
Other Thoughts: Sloppy construction on mine had wires protruding so far, they touched my hard drive's metal case. I ended up shorting out my comp, but fortunately I could reboot. You must cover these wires w/ tape or file them down, first!
No instructions. You must attach SATA cable to adapter card, then ATTACH POWER CABLES TO BOTH THE CARD AND THE HARD DRIVE.
