Luxa2 Groovy Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker 2.1
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Convenient, portable and clear 01/04/2014

This review is from: Luxa2 Groovy Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Speaker 2.1

Pros: The radio is highly compatible with older devices as it uses an older bluetooth 2.1 protocol and auto connects to the host device, no need for passcodes or pressing another button to pair. A "unique" sounds let me know when it turns on/off and paired.

Audio quality is good with no rattles and I have charged it once and it is still going strong. The build materials are fantastic, aluminum with leather and a cloth net protecting the face.

Cons: I've noticed a finite limit at about 20' where the bluetooth transfer loss causes the audio to cutout. Volume is not normalized so don't stray too far from the host or speaker, those around you will thank you for turning it down. There's no rattle and no bass. The bass is on the high end of the lower spectrum, drum and bass sounds like drum and cymbal, kind of a bummer there.

Other Thoughts: I have two young boys and this speaker travels around the house with us. Whether we're jamming to Laurie Berkner or chilling to Tycho the audio quality has always been good. Notable extras were the black and brown leather handles and pull string bag.

My wife likes how it looks ...

D-Link  DGS-1008G  Gigabit Desktop Switch - Retail

5 out of 5 eggs The price, the speed, the value! 11/18/2011

This review is from: D-Link DGS-1008G Gigabit Desktop Switch - Retail

Pros: I bought this to upgrade my network backbone and the configuration is stupid easy.

Cons: You think you have time to get a cup of coffee and browse the paper transferring files? Well, now you don't.

I'm curious what the "Green" actually means for it's durability over the years but at the price I paid, I can replace it twice over 5 years and still have saved money.

Other Thoughts: No other thoughts, the speed is great. If you are wanting to connect this directly to another device like a router, plan on having only 7 ports available because one will be used for that connection.

SAMSUNG Spinpoint M8 ST750LM022(HN-M750MBB) 750GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I needed an upgrade to my aging Fujitsu 250GB drive, it was becoming noisy and slowing down by the day it seemed. This drive wasn't my first choice but the prices on hard drives has been unpredictable.

There's no random head parking due the drive's lack of drop detection that would conflict Apple's built-in process. Without that trouble, reinstallation of my latest Snow Leopard Time Machine backup was straight forward. I just had to repair permission and rebuild my Aperture library and everything was just as I left it.

My Boot Camp installation of Win7 was pretty unexciting and straight forward, nothing weird from the drive.

This drive is HUGE, 750GBs in a laptop has now empowered me to store work files externally less often and streamlining my workflow without worrying about free space.

Cons: Only an 8MB buffer. This hasn't had as direct of an impact on performance as I figured it would because the disk's overall XBench score was still over 50 but the price was right.

Installing in an older Macbook Pro would be nerve racking for a person with no prior experience as I had to remove 20 or screws and expose the mainboard.

I'm going to have to upgrade to a larger external drive to house my Time Machine backups.

Other Thoughts: This was, overall, a smooth and solid update. From disassembling my Macbook Pro to completing the installation of Snow Leopard from a Time Machine backup, the process was only 4 hours. No surprises, both Snow Leopard and Win7 via Bootcamp recognized the drive.

I would recommend this drive to any person interested in updating their non-unibody Macbook Pro.
