AGPtek iT4-2 Stainless Steel 150 mm LCD Digital Vernier Caliper Micrometer Gauge
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, ok construction.

Cons: Not Accurate. Requires calibration each time, and that doesn't work very well.

Other Thoughts: I work on guitars, and sometimes I need to know what gauge string the customer has on it. Sometimes they don't know.

This is not even close. I tested it on several guitars that I know had .012 for the high "E" string. This thing registered .014 - 0.16. In the world of guitar strings, that is huge difference in gauges.

I tried multiple times, re-calibrating each time. The results varied and weren't even close enough for Rock-n-Roll.

3 out of 5 eggs Cheap Storage - Slow Transfer 01/11/2015

This review is from: Patriot SLATE 3.0 128GB USB Flash Drive Model PSF128GLSS3USB

Pros: Inexpensive, decent construction. Good for smaller file storage/transfer.

Cons: The drive is very slow. I copied a 38 gig VM file in 30 minutes. You do the math. Same file with Samsung SSD in an external USB 3 case, 2 minutes.

Other Thoughts: I read where others complained about how difficult it was to get the cap off. Well, it's not difficult, and it's by design.

You need to squeeze the thin sides of the drive and pull. If you look closely, there's a small latch on the inside of wider side. So if you press there, you're closing the latch tighter.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Little Adapter 12/23/2014

This review is from: Tek Republic TUA-300 USB 3.0 to HDMI / DVI Adapter

Pros: Inexpensive way to go beyond what the limitations of the computer ports.

Used to add a 4th monitor to my MacBook Pro. Easy setup, and does exactly what I needed.

There's one caveat, if you use Yosemite you need to download the beta drivers from their site. The drivers that come with the unit won't work. But that's not a big deal.

Cons: None
