Klipsch Lightspeaker System 5.2.2 Architectural Speaker Pair
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs seriously, do not buy these! 05/25/2012

This review is from: Klipsch Lightspeaker System 5.2.2 Architectural Speaker Pair

Pros: Were cool, on the rare occasions when they worked.

Cons: I've had these just over 1 year, and have had nothing but trouble with them. One of the speakers has now failed in the worst way possible: the speaker doesn't work, and light flashes from off to full brightness. So it's not just that the speaker doesn't work or the light is out, instead you can't use the whole set of can lights it's a part of.

Other Thoughts: The transmitter failed and was replaced under warranty. One of the speakers would quit after being on for a little while, but since it would come back on if you turned power off and back on, Klipsch wouldn't replace it. Finally, just 1 week out of warranty the bad speaker quit, entirely. Now the bright flashes it makes mean you can't use the whole set of can lights the speaker is in.

Rosewill RHRC-11001 - Windows Vista / 7 / 8 MCE Infrared Remote Control with Learning Function
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs not really a "learning" remote 05/23/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RHRC-11001 - Windows Vista / 7 / 8 MCE Infrared Remote Control with Learning Function

Pros: Does function as a Windows 7 Media Center remote with no driver installation required. Long USB and IR blaster cables.

Cons: Can't control multiple devices. "Learning" function so limited as to be useless. Rows of small buttons means it's hard to find and use anything but the four central buttons. Pause, fast forward, rewind, are virtually impossible without looking at the remote in good light.

Other Thoughts: Just needed one learned function: turn on the TV when I turn on the computer. The manual (printed in almost un-readable tiny, light-grey text, BTW) explains that this "learning" remote can actually only control a set-top box connected to a TV tuner in the PC. It can't control anything else and can only be programmed at all after you have installed said TV tuner and set-top box.

Patriot Xporter XT Rage 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GRUSB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs blazing fast USB 2.0 drive 05/15/2012

This review is from: Patriot Xporter XT Rage 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model PEF8GRUSB

Pros: Fastest USB drive I own. Easy to find in my bag. No problems after almost a year of fairly heavy use.

Cons: Bulky. Blocks other USB ports both above/below and to the sides.

Other Thoughts: Of course, real life doesn't match the synthetic benchmarks, but when dealing with large files I easily get 11.6MB/s write, and 30MB/s read. You need a USB 3.0 drive to get any faster than this. No question in my mind that it's worth paying the couple dollars more to get this over any other 8GB drive except maybe the Mushkin Enhanced Mulholland.
