This review is from: HP LaserJet Pro M402n (C5F93A) Duplex 4800 x 600 enhance dpi USB Mono Laser Printer
Pros: Shorter than the previous M401n (though I think the foot print might be slightly larger)
Other than the cons below, its pretty much the same as the M401n.
Cons: Prints some PDF forms incorrectly. Example: all lines of text on some pages will be upside down. This does not happen on the same system and forms with the M401n.
In less than 150 pages, the drum on the toner cartridge started leaving dots on the pages. This is something I might expect from a worn out refurbed cartridge, but not a brand new OEM one with fewer than 150 impressions.
Driver install slightly more annoying than the M401n. Also had issue after first install where all of the installed printer devices had their drivers messed up, requiring manually deleting all of the currently installed drivers and manually reinstalling each device., my t
Uses a different toner cartridge than M401n. This was extremely annoying when HP does this, my toner supplies are segmented enough between model likes without them now doing between revision within the same model line (400 Pro). The redesigned cartridge is likely due to making the printer lower profile, but had it been the same as the M401n, I think the print issues would not have happened.
Other Thoughts: I bought 9 of these for new hires since the M401n was discontinued. I'll be returning all of them and looking for something else.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: WD Se WD2000F9YZ 2TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Enterprise Hard Drive
Pros: Have not used it yet.
Specs are nice for the price range, so its either going to be very nice, or end up a total avoid like the WD Reds.
Cons: Like the other reviewer said, the lack of having locking on the SATA connector is a really big omission. It would not have been as huge of a deal if it wasn't extra loose compared to early SATA1 that did not have cable locking.
The design was likely intended for backplanes, but even standard SAS drives have cable lock support, so I don't see why WD had to do this.
Other Thoughts: I may put these in one of my servers instead of the new desktop; while I have an extra RAID backplane I could mount up in this thing, I can't give up the 5.25" drive bays for it.
I've got a family friend that's an engineer at WD, I'm going to complain at them for the choice of connector plane on this series.
This review is from: Microsoft Office Professional 2013 - Download
Pros: Nothing new of considerable vavlue.
Cons: New licensing scheme locks license to physical hardware. If your computer fails, you will have to buy another copy at full price again.
Other Thoughts: Key only, guessing on win8 you use the key in MS's yet-another-app-store, but unlike app stores we've been using for years now, its an install-once-buy-again system. Win7 install requires hoop jumping to get download.READ FULL REVIEW
