This review is from: powercom KIN-1000AP 1000 VA 600 Watts 5 Outlets UPS
Pros: Solidly built, steel casing, runs cool, good capacity.
It is rather slim and long, and though heavy as expected, it is pretty easy to stow and handle in the world of UPS's. It did shut the server down nicely during two power outages, and has kept power levels constant.
Cons: Requires and old-fashioned serial port, and is very finicky in It's in the communication with the enclosed UPSMON software, which is ridiculous bordering on useless. No netpage configuration, very clunky software from the BASIC aera. Failed to properly shut down (software not communicating) during the last power outage, and now my 5TB RAID is still hours away from being done resyncing.
Other Thoughts: Without good software communication it has severely reduced functionality. Tried via 2 different ports, the native com1 and a usb adapter. Both serial ports work fine, but it feels random when the UPSMON gets to read the status or not.
Each time software stops communicating with UPS, it requires a full uninstall and reinstall (sometimes several) to seemingly randomly work again.
This review is from: Silicon Power Firma F80 64GB Waterproof USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP064GBUF2F80V1S
Pros: Great design; sturdy, fits on my key chain and seems like it is holding up to the rough life there because of its all-metal casing. Great space; 64GB. Relatively fast for a USB 2.0
Cons: USB 2.0 is now definately "older generation".
Other Thoughts: With development as rapid as it goes, the price seems high for just USB 2.0. Had I found the same design, waterproof, USB 3.0, I would have gladly paid extra, but it wasn't available when I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy to install correctly- You don't want to take chances with a TV being both heavy and expensive.
I used this one to mount a 46" LCDTV to the wall just under the ceiling in our bedroom. I am confident it's going to stay there until I take it down =) Came with every conceivable nut, bolt, and washer you could possibly need.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
