This review is from: Kaspersky Internet Security 2015 - 3 PCs
Pros: Anti-virus is such that when it works, you're not supposed to notice. sometimes it does tell me about phishing attempts or suspicious websites. But I guess I'm supposed to take their word for it...
Cons: ...Nevertheless, I was hit 3 times in the last month by spear-phishing attempts where the attack attempted to spoof my DSL router's configuration page. I caught it because I was alert, but I feel a competent security program should have caught first.
Other Thoughts: This will be my third year of using Kaspersky and I'm becoming increasingly disappointed. Not just at the quality of the product, but at the way Kaspersky is doing business. I don't mind paying for a good product, but if you are going to advertise your offering with a rebate promotion, principles of good customer service compels you to follow through. When my rebate check failed to arrive by the announced date last year, I called twice only to be told the ETA of my check was pushed back again and again. My patience was rewarded today when a final call to the same customer service rep told me the manufacturer has closed the promo and because I didn't check back in time for the 3rd time, she was unable to issue the rebate I was promised. When I was forced to wait the first 2 times, I thought there was a chance the sanctions on Russia due to Ukraine may have played a role in hampering Russian business activity in the US. But when I inquired further today, the customer rep told me that 99.9% of the time the reason for a missing/delayed rebate was that we, the customers, unwittingly throw them away. I don't doubt that does happen. I give props to her for being blunt about the possibility. However I'd been expecting and waiting for the promised rebate and it offended me to have implied I couldn't read or recognize an anticipated item of mail, that this was my fault for having to continuously nag them to deliver on a promise. Habits are hard to change, but if this is going to be the norm now, it may not be worth Kaspersky's waning reputation. Migrating to AVG, Panda, or someone else is a hassle, but you do what you need to do if you have to.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: iPad 2 3 4 Bluetooth Keyboard Case wireless Leather case keyboard
Pros: Form factor and design fits my iPad 2 nicely. attractive price.
Cons: smelled really bad upon arrival. Took a few days to outgas. Minor blemish in a few spots. Not normally noticeable, but because the product is white, it does stand out more than it should.
Other Thoughts: The silicone keyboard is a nice guard against dirt and spills. But I've noticed it isn't too comfortable to type on for extended periods of time. This is important as the small size is already an ergonomic disadvantage.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For the price I paid, this is a bargain, even if it was a refurb. Only 7 inches, but packs quite a wallop. The sound from the speakers are surprisingly decent. The screen is very crisp.
Cons: Lack of microSD to suppliment the 16GB onboard memory.
Power/volume buttons have lousy debounce circuit.
No flash for the rear facing camera
Other Thoughts: The battery life is so-so, but not really unexpected. My main complaints at this point are directed less toward the hardware (which should be the focus of the review) than the Android OS and available apps. I am a bit annoyed that so far, my Nexus isn't a complete replacement solution for my 2nd gen iPad because of the unavailability of certain apps.READ FULL REVIEW
