iCanonic Black Blue 12,000 mAh Universal Rechargable Power Pack ICR-12000B
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Exactly the one I'mve been Looking for 10/24/2013

This review is from: iCanonic Black Blue 12,000 mAh Universal Rechargable Power Pack ICR-12000B

Pros: Relative fast charge.
Small size.

Cons: Well, it is not fancy as some of the others have. I care less about this.

Other Thoughts: Almost all the other portable batteries I've looked at have the Micro USB power input. And this is the very first one I found that does not use the Micro USB. Charging input makes a big difference. With AC charger, you can charge it much faster.

I use this battery mainly to power my MiFi. That box has a small cellphone type battery, but it lasts only minutes. I do not know why. With this large battery, I never have to worry about the MiFi out of power. I also use the battery to charge my Galaxy and Nexus tab. I've not used more than 1/2 of the capacity.

A good buy.

1 out of 5 eggs Scam, Do not Buy 09/21/2013

This review is from: Total Defense Premium Internet Security - 5 User

Pros: None

Cons: Basically the software is free and they make $ by subscription service.
Rebate is scam.

Other Thoughts: I was wondering why this product has been bundled with so many other products and is basically free if you get the rebate ($60 to $80). Now I know.

First, it is very hard to get your rebate. I do not know what the success rate is to get the rebate. I figure very very low.

The software is essentially free and they try to get your money by forcing you to install the software and use its subscription service. To submit the rebate, you'll have to activate the product. I figure they would make the rebate eligible only if you keep using their service. Or no rebate!

Most subscription-bases software is totally free, but this company add one more layer trying to get your $ through the rebate scam. You can't change your mind after you purchase the software.

Do not buy.

Acronis True Image 2013
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Useless 09/15/2013

This review is from: Acronis True Image 2013

Pros: Nice GUI

Cons: Corrupt backup without warning.
Confusing log info.

Other Thoughts: Well, it is sad to own Acronis name. I've been using Acronis for a couple of years. It has some hicups, but I still stick with it.

Now I run my own Home Server 2011 and I installed both Disk Director and True Image (called Backup and Recovery for server) server versions. No errors from installation.

First server backup. It reported some errors with backups. I did some research and found the errors from shadow file setting (VSS?). Reset the setting and backup ran ok.

Another backup problem. When I tried to set the backup compresson to high, the backup froze and would not go. So I had to stop the backup and set the compresson to normal or none. Finally backup completed.

The restore was a disaster.

I used to Disk Director Server to move a partition from one disk to another disk. The task completed with failure. The source partition was removed, but the target partition was corrupt. So I lost data.

So I called upon the software to restore from the backup. The restore failed completely with tons of errors. It reported that the backup image was corrupt and could not complete. I mounted the backup image and tried to manually copy files from the backup image. I did salvage some data, but some files were lost. Some files could not be copied.

Backup software has to be 100% reliable. Disk drives can fail and restoring is what we pay for backup software. Acronis has failed very badly.

I'll stay away from Acronis and try to find something else. I lost data.....
