Pros: Prints excellent quality, and fast. Inexpensive. Scans multi-page documents (single-sided only) straight from the feeder.
Works with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu
Ink cartridges easy to replace
Cons: Software takes long time to install and is buggy. Requires occasional re-installation.
Navigation of settings on the small screen is a chore.
Other Thoughts: This printer serviced our family well for nearly 3 years and now has an error indicating something is wrong with an ink cartridge I just replaced a few weeks ago. For what printers cost, I am inclined to just buy a new printer. I found an online vendor that still sells the 4500, so maybe i will do that and keep this one for spare parts.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, affordable, fits nicely in a laptop, comes with a thin (1mm?) spacer in case you need it
This unit is also sized appropriately for any of the major operating systems if you don't need a lot of extra space for software and data.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Installed this SSD several days ago to replace a 5400rpm HDD in a Toshiba laptop for my step-mother. The difference in performance is very noticeable when booting and launching applications. Complete reboot in less than 1 minute. It probably would have been better with a fresh install of the OS, but I just cloned the existing disk to save time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Good price, works much like identical Foscam camera, better picture quality than expected
Cons: Getting the wireless network connection to work has been difficult and disappointing. It actually connected for a short period of time, but then when I unplugged the power to move it to a different location, it lost its mind and could not re-connect. It has no issue connecting over the ethernet port.
I am a computer engineer and have been working in IT for a couple of decades. I know how to set up a wireless device on my own home network, as we probably have about a dozen of them in the house. This poor camera just has an issue. I think I recall reading a review that claimed certain characters are not allowed in the passphrase, so maybe that is the issue.
Other Thoughts: Looks and operates just like Foscam. I generally recommend hooking up with ethernet for the reliability anyhow. I just wanted to test it for a while before I decided to run wire, but the wireless has left me disappointed.
I have had no issue with a very similar Foscam camera that cost $20 more.
If you are planning on using this thing wirelessly, you might want to plan on another brand.
