This review is from: HGST 0F10453 2TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Pros: Cheap, large capacity hard drive
Cons: Failed twice, won't trust it again
Other Thoughts: Bought one new as a primary hard drive for a new build. After several months it crashed hard. Removed and checked it on another PC which showed the drive had some sort of partition problems but was able to copy the data to the other PC. After a couple years, reformatted the 2TB hard drive and used as a secondary drive on a new build. Had serious problems again. Removed it as a backup and the PC worked fine. Hard drives are too cheap to endure these problems more than once.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vornado Air LLC CR1-0089-16 3-Speed Shop Fan/Air Circulator
Pros: Great fan, use mine every day in the summer for over 15 years. Face snaps off for easy cleaning. Durable, have dropped it at least a couple times with no harm.
Cons: Available on other web sites for at least $35 less with free shipping. Not as much horsepower as some of the larger Vornado floor fans.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: TOSHIBA DVR620 DVD Recorder/VCR Combo with 1080p Upconversion
Pros: Looked like new. Easy to setup and ran right out of the box. The upconversion gives a sharper video on a big screen TV from a DVD or an external tuner than my previous DVD/VCR combo. Setup and Timer screens are similar to most units.
Cons: Doesn't have coaxial antenna connectors in back. Forces the use of RCA connectors from the external tuner which could have been used to connect to another device. Remote has an odd layout. Record button is a small button one up and one over from the lower right corner. The RCA cables included are thin gauge with the yellow video cable separate from the red and white combined audio cable. Minor issues overall.
Other Thoughts: A good bargain recorder. New units are too expensive for such well established technology.READ FULL REVIEW
