Pros: Display can be separated from plug. Very nice.
Cons: If you're accumulating kWh, you can't read instantaneous watts. If you switch to instantaneous watts, it zeros out accumulated kWh. These are the two measurements users will most want to know, and it can only do one at a time. Really dumb design.
Other Thoughts: Display is not great contrast, but it has a fairly good angle of visibility, so it can be wall mounted even though it tilts upward. But the back is not flat so mounting it is tricky. I used double sided foam tape at the bottom of the display and it hasn't fallen off so far.
If there's a power failure, it loses any accumulated kWh.
This review is from: Acronis True Image 2015 w/ 250 GB Cloud Storage
Pros: Configured to back up my boot drive daily to a second hard drive, ATI has saved my fanny innumerable times over the years from crashes, malware, and the ability to mount any backup and retrieve files from a past date.
Cons: Insufferable user interface. Will do what the programmers decided it should (usually) but you often need to figure out how. Making it work on a small laptop under Windows 10 was an odyssey through glitches and strange unrepeatable errors, though I finally got a USB flash drive to boot after getting some help in a user forum.
Other Thoughts: I approach each new edition with trepidation but couldn't live without it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Pyle 6.5" 120W 2-Way White Marine Speaker
Pros: I was looking for an inexpensive speaker that fit an existing hole with screw holes on 6 1/2" diameter. This filled the bill - and the hole. And it does make noise.
Cons: You get what you pay for. The sound is tinny - response is listed as 45Hz - 16k Hz - and on the weak side. And it's not a two-way; Pyle calls it a "dual cone" and there's only one speaker in each unit. They are listed as "marine speakers" but the grill is not designed to keep water out and the mounting screws are not stainless.
Other Thoughts: I rarely use the speakers in this location so these are all I needed. I had low expectations and it met them.READ FULL REVIEW
