This review is from: Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 Deluxe Bundle Scanner for PC and Mac (PA03656-B015)
Pros: 1) Scans fast (new computer, usb 3.0 connection)
2) Bundled software works well (I mainly have been just "scanning to file" with ScanSnap manager)
3) 1 jam out of 1,000 pages
4) Can scan very small papers (receipts, ect) with other sizes in the same batch without a hiccup.
PDF's come out sharp and clear even when source is wrinkled. Page folds do show up, but it has to be pretty deep creasing
Cons: Auto detection of color sometimes will scan in B&W when I would pick grey scale to deal with finely dithered monochrome documents.
Auto detection of page orientation gets it right most of the time .. seems to not like a page of very small text.
Other Thoughts: This scanner is replacing a old but much more expensive scanner (B&H Sidekick 1200) and it seems to have more functionality and just as speedy and reliable.
For the price I am very happy with this product and would recommend it over the scanning function of a AIO printer hands down, as the time it saved verses the price was worth it to me.
This review is from: Pioneer SW-8-K 100W Powered Subwoofer Single
Pros: Good sound, lower power. Takes high volt or digital RCA input.
As a pro, newegg's cons timer service was stellar in resolving the issue. Some company's just about forget you when it comes time to honor a return policy. It was painless, reps where helpful and so present to deal with.
Cons: On line conditioned power with on board gain set to middle the sub made it 3 days (3 movies on adult volume) ... The culprit was a bad fuse which was replaced for testing purposes 1a 250v slow blow ... With new fuse device lasted 10 mins on auto with no sound being supplied to subwoofer .. I never had the device turned up loud enough to make the speaker " bottom out" as my system was setup for a 40w used Phillips powered sub that was over 10 yrs old (which was put back on place and is still doing fine)
Other Thoughts: This sub is a good deal, I suppose I just ended up with one that was poorly made and or tested. I used to work for a factory that made icb's and it happens, but I did expect better quality control from pioneer.. So if you plan on purchasing this product .. Test it right away and for a good length of time to make sure you got a "good one" .. A large percentage of electronics fail with in the first dozen power cycles.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE90G 2.5" 90GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Did a new build for a friends big box store machine, this drive is just ridiculous fast. It scores higher on the 7 index than my 10,000rpm raid setup. 7.4 vs 6.2
Running in a
AMD x3 system
ATI 5770 1GB
Cons: Price per GB, to be expected.
Other Thoughts: I would like to try this drive in a RAID setup vs one of the PCI-e aio cards that are promising faster speeds yet. I am sure that on-board raid controllers just can't handle all that SSD goodness, but it made me a convert.
This product blew me away enough to right my 1st review
