Hutt SlimFit Premium 6-in-1 BMI Scale w/ Large LCD Display
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Nice Scale, for me 09/10/2013

This review is from: Hutt SlimFit Premium 6-in-1 BMI Scale w/ Large LCD Display

Pros: Does what it says, seems accurate.
Extremely good deal for $14.95 w/S&H

Cons: If my feet are overly dry it won't display more than weight.

Other Thoughts: I got mine directly from 1saleaday, for $14.95, and have been very pleased

I think it's probably worth up to $25 or $30, possibly more, except for the fact that there appears to be poor quality control, and so buyers experience a wide range of quality. For some it seems to never work right, for others it breaks quickly, and yet others, like myself, experience high quality, high sensitivity, and no problems.

For instance, if my feet are REALLY dry, I get an Error2 when it tries to calculate anything but my weight. But I have found that moistening my feet with a very little water is enough to solve that problem.

I definitely reccomend it, as long as your total + S&H is less than $20.

For total prices above $25, it seems to be too much of a risk that you'll get a bad one, unless they will pay for return shipping.

Between $20 to $25, it's too close to call. But the good news is that it's possible to find it for less than $20 on some popular websites.

Pros: None. Worked for a few weeks, then one bay stopped working.

My emails to the manufacturer have been ignored.

I feel like Calvelry conspired to steal my money.

I've has such good luck with NewEgg over so many years it's hard to believe they were anything but a patsy in this.

Cons: None. Worked for a few weeks, then one bay stopped working.

Other Thoughts: The opinions I state below are my own, and no-one elses.

The FACTS I relay, and that lead up to my opinions feelings, and convictions, are in the public domain, and belong to everyone. Because noone get's their own facts.

The bay worked beautifully for a few weeks, then one bay just gave up, making both High-Speed copying between drives and HDD Duplication impossible.

I emailed Calvery several times, and never heard anything back even once. Not even to acknowledge that this is a model with issues. I think I even used a web-form on their website, and never heard back from that either.

I feel that they KNEW that this dual HDD bay was a big, stinkey toilet trout, but rather than being ethical by recalling them and taking a huge loss, they decided to sell them KNOWING they would break AFTER NewEgg's 30 return policy, then THEY would BREAK THEIR OWN WARRENTY, by refusing to fix them and further, not even acknowledging the customers they ripped off.

And I am CONVINCED of that because, AS SOON AS the SALE was OVER, the thing went on CLEARENCE! If it WASN'T electronic effluence, why the sale, then clearence, then no longer selling them at all?

This really is the worst product I've ever gotten off of Newegg, and probably the worst product I've EVER purchased in my entire life.

Until Calvalry makes this good for me, I... 1) Will Never buy another Calvery product in my life, and... 2) Could never in good consience reccomend Calvery to anyone ever, and will use my IT credentials to warn others from making the same mistake I did when I purchased a Calvalry product.

Cavalry EN-CAHDD2B-D 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked at first. And I gave it a high raiting. But after being used for RAID 0+1 w/the 2 TB Seagate drives they had on sale for $69.99 over Christmas for a few days, And then being used to replicate two drives successfully, I put it on the shelf for a month. Then got it back out to copy files from one drive to another (Hoping that would be faster than pulling the files from a 2TB drive through USB 2.0 connection, and then pushing them back out through another USB 2.0 connection.)

Unfortionately...

Cons: After owning it for less than a month and a half, drive bay #1 stopped working, and so it became useless for RAID 0, 1, JOBD, and drive duplication.

Now it's only good as a USB to SATA converter.

Since I didn't have a problem until a month and a half after the purchase, it's no longer covered by Newegg's 30 replacement or exchange warrenty.

I emailed the manufacture on Saturday evening, it's now Thursday but I have gotten no responce yet. I'll let you know if Calvery ever get's in touch with me.

Other Thoughts: If I'd had known this was on sale just to be discontinued, I might have passed it up.

I guess I should have known from the cheap price that it was a cheap product, but I got pulled in thinking I'd gotten a good deal.

P.S. - I ignored this at first, but the lights for the two drive bays are reversed, with little pieces of paper poorly stuck over the original lables, and are now comming off.

This makes me think that these were unmarked refurbished or remanufactured products, which I believe must be advertised as such. If not, I don't know why so many retailors go to such lengths to tell the consumer, and why refurbs are sold at such a discount.

I'm going to be looking into the legality of selling refurbs W/o notifying the customer.
