This review is from: Bluetooth Headset w/ Android Application Support (HM7000)
Pros: I have tried a few BT sets and had great luck with most of them. The one nagging thing is noise cancellation for me. The older units I have had were nice but no noise cancellation at all. It seems things have come a long way with the newest sets. In looking the most popular sets were found to actually be over a year old. I am sure some of them were updated in firmware but there is so much information from other buyers that make you feel a bit unsure about the older units. I dont want to sound like a robot just to get noise cancellation and I would rather know I am getting some new technology. This unit paired with my galaxy phone is great. It has little or no weight and it is super clear. I get awesome cancellation. Does not take everything away but it makes your voice clear in noisy areas. Works well in the wind but not perfect it you are pointing directly into the wind. I get really good charging times. I wear it for a 8 hour shift and have not ran it dead yet. I love the dock.
Cons: The add-on software is not as supportive as the already installed voice recognition in my phone. I tried it but so far I have just gone back to the built in phone options. I did love the text to voice but it does not recognize my voice hardly at all. My phone gets it right 90% of the time. So I will leave it where it works.
Would be a superstar if the whole software thing was better.
Other Thoughts: I added a jabra ear gel to this thing and love it. It is way louder and I can wear it all day. It sticks out farther with the ear gel but there is no weight to be a problem.
The ear gels can be bought in sets of 6. That is for lg, med & sm. sets of left and right ears. I put an old rubber on the BT set that does not have anything sticking off of it. Just a rubber ring for a factory Samsung BT, Install the Jabra ear gel over it, Adjust the direction of the mic boom and your set to go. (PS this ear gel adds a bunch of volume to your BT)
Great BT with great volume and clear voice on both ends.
This review is from: Hitachi GST Touro Desk 3TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive 0S03290 Black
Pros: Ordered on Thursday and received it on Friday. Newegg rocks on UPS shipping from Memphis.
Cons: Plugged it in and not found. Noticed the plug in and power board is way inside the case. Secure but mounted well behind the case opening. The power fit well but the cord would not even stay in the mini USB connection. I had another cord with a small jacket that worked. Next the computer did not find the drive. Went through the whole ordeal to set up the computer and bios and still nothing. I tried it on 2 other computers and even tried the power supply from a 1TB version of the same drive. Still no go. I finally stuck my ear to it and plugged the power in. All to hear a soft beeping sound and absolutely no hard drive spin up at all. Spend about 30 minutes getting a RMA. It's going back and I get to wait a week or so till the drive is opened in California to be sure it is dead.
I needed the drive pretty quickly to back up a failing drive I got late last year. Not going to happen now and I hope I dont loose all the movies I have stored on the failing drive b4 this is exchanged.
Other Thoughts: Never had to many problems with Newegg. It is a pleasure to work with the support group. If there products were as good they would be hard to beat.
In the old days it was rare to have a bad drive. I am really getting disappointed with the ratios of failing drives in today's market. I really hope the companies get a hold of the problems and get back to dependability and happy customers.
