VERBATIM Spindle of 10 DVD+RW (8cm) - 1.4 GB - storage media
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Way Over-Priced 08/16/2014

This review is from: VERBATIM Spindle of 10 DVD+RW (8cm) - 1.4 GB - storage media

Pros: Exceptionally good product for short "Video Mail" (which I use them a LOT for), extreamly good for a small amount of pictures or music that you want to transfer without spending a lot. Very wise to keep 1.4, 4.7, 8.6 gig disks on hand to right to.

I like the 1.4s especially for sending a letter. Buy small manilla envelopes to put them in, then drop in standard mailing envelope, and the cost is standard postage for a letter, no more.

If you record from computer webcam, and then convert to standard "DVD" format, these will give you EXACTLY 15 minutes of record time. Just right for a personal letter.

Cons: On this web site - WAY TOO MUCH MONEY - I buy these all the time for 6.30 for 20 disks plus shipping (total cost 9.30) and that is for the more expensive 1.4GIG disks.

NTi Backup Now 5 Advanced
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Not worth the headache 07/05/2013

This review is from: NTi Backup Now 5 Advanced

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: I had searched a lot of companies for a very long time, trying to find one that I could be SURE would do the job. After talking to this company directly, they convinced me they were "it". On the first failure I had, the "start up disk" that was made would not boot up, and then wouldn't run when I used another system to boot up on, so the whole thing was worthless. I also had the same issue as the other remark that after 2 installs it's like pulling teeth to get a key back. They need to understand that when I purchase their software, it's MINE, not theirs.

HooToo HT-UH001 SuperSpeed 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good Price Fair Performance 07/05/2013

This review is from: HooToo HT-UH001 SuperSpeed 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub

Pros: Very simple to install. Takes advantage of ports at back of computer, Good visual indicators. Very stable IF you use those double sided stickies to keep it in one place good and solid. Otherwise you will have trouble with your devices keep "coming unplugged" and then going back in service over and over.

Cons: interferes with 2.0 ports during boot up. After connecting, I found that my Keyboard was no longer active UNTIL my OS started. This meant that I couldn't get into my BIOS if needed, which is pretty important with ASUS motherboards (which I have). IF I disconnect the hub during boot up, the motherboard works correctly. You will find some pretty bizarre "fixes" to this issue over the internet. Personally, I find just pulling the power tap to the hub before booting up a lot more simple and a lot less intrusive than the "fixes" that you will find.

Other Thoughts: At first I wasn't happy at all, but over time, it has been a big advantage
