GPX C353B Clock Radio
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

2 out of 5 eggs Don't Bother 04/06/2014

This review is from: GPX C353B Clock Radio

Pros: Easily readable from across room.

Cons: Most confusing controls of any sort I've ever encountered. Can't even set the time without referring to the instructions! Too bright, even at dimmed setting, to use at nightstand. Radio reception is almost non-existent.

Other Thoughts: I had hoped to use this to replace my 20+ year old clock radio which is starting to have problems and because of my deteriorating eyesight. Instead, I'm using it solely as a clock placed across the room. Let's see if it I manage to continue to use it when DST ends without smashing it to the ground in frustration of simply setting the hour back by one increment.

Corsair Vengeance K70 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Black - Cherry MX Red (CH-9000011-NA)
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 2 year, no hassle warrantee. Wonderful backlighting. Looks and feels great.

Cons: Failed in under a full year. Not recognized by PC any longer. Not suitable for accurate typing, despite mechanical feedback. I never made so many typing errors in my life as when using this device. Lots of missed key-presses and multiple key-presses. May be good for gaming - I don't game - but not good for typing.

Other Thoughts: This review is for the Cherry Blue key model. I've reverted to my unlighted bucking-spring Unicomp IBM Model M clone keyboard. Will use the Corsair Vengeance as a backup, but it's likely to be a long time until then, as my last original IBM Model M lasted for more than 15 years. I'm gladly giving up the back-lighting for much improved typing accuracy.

ASUS Eee Pad Transformer (TF101-B1) NVIDIA Tegra 2 1GB DDR2 Memory 32GB Flash 10.1
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Durable. Well supported by developer community. Long battery life. Fast charging. Good display.

Cons: Relatively slow by modern (2014) standards. No oil-resistant glass coating. Requires special USB cable and proprietary charger, but a small negative given the really fast charging afforded by its 15V charger. Very low volume from speakers and headphones.

Other Thoughts: I bought this almost 2 years ago for $375 and I just completed another upgrade to Androiid 4.4.2 KitKat. Although Asus stopped upgrades after ICS, the developer community continues to provide updated ROMs. It's relatively slow to boot and shutdown by current standards, but everything else about this tablet remains fine for my browsing and blog reading. I have a Samsung tab 7 and my wife has an Asus Note 8 which are faster, but I prefer the size and feel of the TF101. I am worried about its continued reliability (2 years is old for a tablet), so I just ordered a new Asus TF107T after spending a lot of time reviewing the competition. My positive experience with the TF101 was a big influence on my decision. I haven't needed any support from ASUS. The few questions I've had were quickly answered via on-line resources,
