Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Nice price but runs HOT on USB3 02/14/2015

This review is from: Kingston DataTraveler Generation 4 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model DTIG4/8GB

Pros: Inexpensive
Good storage size for many uses
Form Factor is average

Cons: Drive gets hot (very HOT) when used on USB 3.0 port

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these to use as bootable devices (recovery). They've proven fine for that, more capacity than needed. Speeds are nothing to brag about (29 Read/10 Write) - no advantage to using on USB 3.0 port. For some reason this drive runs cool on a USB 2 port, but gets really hot on 3.0 ports. Because of the modest speeds, I'm going to use them on my 2.0 ports - those high temps concern me.

TATUNG TPC-5L 5L Pressure Cooker with Inner Pot - Stainless Steel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Solidly built, but flawed 09/19/2014

This review is from: TATUNG TPC-5L 5L Pressure Cooker with Inner Pot - Stainless Steel

Pros: Substantial stainless steel inner pot
Affordably priced
Solid construction, feels well built

Cons: Unless you speak Chinese, the manual is worthless
Pressure seal/relief valve is unreliable

Other Thoughts: For me, operation is purely guesswork. The labelled buttons are clearly aimed at the Asian consumer (Tendons, Fragrance ???)- hence as a WASP American they mean nothing to me. Unfortunately, Tatung clearly put no effort into translating the operator's manual. Also, included was a loose sheet that looked like it may include recipes but it was written exclusively in Chinese.

The third time I used the cooker the relief valve would not seal. The first two times I had to nudge it a bit before it stopped bleeding steam, but on the third use it never would. The result was that the water in the pot boiled off and my vegetable was scorched. After three tries of "cleaning" it (there was no evidence of anything on or in it that needed to be cleaned), it worked again. At this point, I'm not sure how confident I am it will work every time I use it.

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Pretty fast SSD, way quicker boot times than HDD
Samsung makes good products
Comes with useful software for migration and configuraion

Cons: Migration tool doesn't handle the partitioning (that I could tell)

Other Thoughts: Operation is as expected and with Newegg promotion it was a very good deal. When I moved my existing HDD to the SSD, it didn't have a provision for the fact that the HDD had two partitions (OS and storage) - I do this to make backup images of my system smaller. When migrated it just created a single partition with the boot (OS) drive contents. I had to use admin tools in W7 to do the split/partitioning - no big deal. Also there was nothing that addressed aligning the drive, but apparently it is automatic as the new drive is OK.
