This review is from: Team C123 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model TC123332GW01
Pros: Its a large capacity fast USB 3 drive that works with no problems. I have both an 8 gig and a 32 gig and neither has given me any trouble. I use it to install Windows 7 on library computers. Plug it in and boot up into the Windows Install right from the USB drive. It has room for all the other programs that I install with it. It has cut the install time by half. that of a DVD.
Cons: The 8 gig and the 32 Gig are the same color. You have to look close to tell them apart. And there is no place to attach a lanyard, that would be a nice thing to have.
Other Thoughts: I have a box full of pen drives. None of them are bad, just smaller capacities. I can combine the data from all of them on to a single 32 gig drive.
I do worry about loosing it. That is a lot of data to replace if I leave it behind somewhere.
This review is from: HOMELITE 14" In. 9.0Amp Electric Chain Saw UT43100
Pros: I use firewood for heat so I use saws a lot. I have a bunch of worn out ones. When my last one showed signs of dying I bought a couple of these, a 14 and a 16 inch. The way I usually process wood is I cut trees into log sizes that will fit in the truck with a gas saw in the woods and then cut it into stove size pieces with an electric saw when I get it home. This saves wear and tear on the more expensive gas saw, and electric is safer, cleaner and quieter. Also electric always starts, even in below zero temps. I actually like the 14 inch better than the 16, They have plenty of power and so far the oilers keep working which is one thing my other electrics always had problems with. As long as you keep it sharp and the chain tight it keeps cutting. These are also quieter than my other electrics.
Cons: I don't care for the toolless chain tightening system. It tends to get slack in the chain and when that happens the chain comes off easily. I much prefer the manual system with the bolts that hold it tight.
Other Thoughts: Somebody needs to make a power cord connection that locks together because I get really tired of having things constantly getting unplugged. You step on the cord while cutting and move the saw and its unplugged. And yes you can do the little knot in the cords thing but the pigtails on saws are pretty short and that does not work that great. A much better thing would be a socket that has a twist lock in it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK Gaia SD1283 120mm Long Life Bearing CPU Cooler LGA1150 Haswell Compatible
Pros: As replacement for stock cooler its great. Runs very quiet and keeps the temperature way down. Its a bit overkill for the processor I put it on but since its priced low its worth it. It takes a little bit of work to install but if you follow the directions it goes smoothly.
Cons: Its tall, make sure it will fit your case. You might have to remove the motherboard if you want to change the fan later.READ FULL REVIEW
