This review is from: Hamilton Beach 51101 White Single-Serve Blender with Travel Lid
Pros: Single serve, small; uses no kitchen space, travel cup, strong... and amazing! Throw in 8oz milk, 8 frozen strawberries, scoop of whey, crushed ice and whirl. In 4 two second pulses, all perfectly mixed. Probably the best mixer for single serve at this price.
Cons: The side measurements go only 1/2 way up the side of the container. I'm assuming this is because when you start to mix everything, it whirls up the sides. Not really a con.
Other Thoughts: This device does not have an on button, only a pulse button. In reviews on other sites, people are complaining of the motor burning out after 'i tried throwing diamonds in and holding the button down for 3 minutes and it burned up!'
Just throw in your ingredients in stages and if your fridge has crushed ice, use it!
Pros: Fast. Good read and write speeds, better than my raptor 150gb
Cons: died after 2 weeks. made some minor ram timing changes, post froze at detecting ide drives. The drive isnt recognized in bios and i dont even feel it spin up anymore. Tried in another system, same thing.
Other Thoughts: I just saw it had 5 eggs and so many reviews + customer choice award. Now after reading here it seems in upwards of 10% of these drives are failing within 3 months. Should have done some more research.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Did everything I wanted. Has plenty of connectors including 2 PCIE's, the motherboard connectors, etc. It is also sleeved.
Cons: Almost too many cables, a con for me, not for others.
Other Thoughts: After about 2 years my computer would have random bouts of bluescreens that would last for 2-3 hours. Finally tested the PSU and the voltages were all over the place. Finally died on me 3 days ago. Just sent in a ticket and I hope I don't get shafted from the holidays because the warranty expires soon...READ FULL REVIEW
