Intel 335 Series Jay Crest SSDSC2CT240A4K5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: fast drive, nice admin tools, 3 yr warranty

Cons: had a failure.
With an equivalent of a bad sector, I could not clone the drive to another clean SSD, so I'm having to reinstall everything from scratch.

Other Thoughts: Failed while downloading some SW. Crashed the computer, had to reboot several times before Win8 would stabilize. PC worked, but SSD toolbox test would not pass and instructed me to contact Intel. I did, and they RMA'd it quickly. Everything has occasional failures, and the warranty is good, so I figure it's still 3 stars. I have 3 other Intel SSD's at home, and all have been flawless, so this just appears to be a random failure.

ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 24X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: it worked fine for about a year of limited use, other than being noisy.

Cons: Noisy at startup, including every time the PC wakes from sleep.
found it running amok one day - spinning wildly, sounding like a jet engine. Had to reboot the PC to get it to stop. The CD that was in it was too hot to touch.
Sometimes it reads a CD, sometimes not now.

Other Thoughts: Still works kind of, but just ordered a Samsung, which I've had better experience with on two other PC's.

GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Bluetooth Wireless FM Transmitter Car Kit with USB Charging, Playback Controls and Hands-Free Calling - Works with Apple iPhone 6, Samsung Note 4, LG G3 and More
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: it does make and receive calls. Mic seems to be clear - those on the other end of the call can hear the driver speaking.

Cons: lots of noise on audio. Good enough for phone calls if the car interior isn't too loud, but IMO it's not good for listening to music from your phone.

Other Thoughts: If you're listening to a station or a CD, and a call comes in, you have to tune the radio to the FlexSmart. Setting a pre-set helps, but it's still an extra step besides hitting the "answer" button, or an extra 2 steps if you're listening to a CD or have a DVD going (like in our case - a minivan with rear entertainment system). not a con really, but just a note as the marketing material conveniently skips this info.
