This review is from: 1W Solar Battery Charger + USB Charger for 5#7# dry cell for 1-4pcs AA/AAA Power
Pros: Charges up to four AA and/or AAA Ni-MH batteries via sunlight or included USB adaptor. Seems to be of good quality lightweight plastic, not overly bulky for its purpose. Arrived intact through shipment.
Front panel LED lights for each battery indicate relative strength of charging by brightness for solar charging, and it can also indicate an individual bad battery if present.
Comes with a transparent battery cover to protect against dirt getting on the sliders, stationary contacts and in the battery housing.
Solar panel is a bit bigger than previous similar solar chargers I've purchased, and the charger is less complicated to use.
The charging cable can be stored inside the battery compartment when not in use.
Cons: Uses what looks like two-foot proprietary USB adaptor cable, with a wall wort-type jack at the charger side, instead of a connector for one of the many standard USB cables widely available. So try not to misplace it.
Battery cover snaps on and off with light pressure, and may need a little care while handling the charger.
Other Thoughts: Works fine so far. USB charging is generally much faster than by sunlight, of course. I use a few of these to keep batteries on standby for my wireless devices, and to cut the cord while those wireless devices were charging. Very convenient. As inexpensive or costs less than some other wall chargers. Great deal.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 110 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model TS4GJF110
Pros: Very fast.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: My first real-world experience with the Transcend JetFlash 110 4GB Flash Drive was excellent. I installed a ~300 MB Operating System (OS) image (.IMG) file to the drive, plugged it into a newly-built computer and booted up on the image file with no problem. It took three(3) minutes to install the OS from the image file on the drive versus fifteen(15) minutes for an .ISO installed on a CD, drive speed 48x. At first I thought something went wrong becuase the install was so quick, but the OS is working perfectly. In this instance, the drive performed about five times faster than installing an OS with a CD.
I have no benchmark numbers or packaging quotes. Just my direct experience for this particular drive within a week of purchasing it.
Pros: Comfortable for smaller hands, ambidextrous design, high DPI for such a low price.
Cons: Light weight does tend to off-put when compared to larger, heavier and more expensive units. High DPI out of the box could make this mouse a bit overly twitchy on initial use.
Other Thoughts: With the right mouse pad and a little time to get used to the lighter weight, found that this mouse works well with my 8-port KVM switch. The price was right and I gifted my neighbour with one as well. He immediately noticed the DPI difference between this mouse and his previous identically priced Rosewill USB optical mouse.READ FULL REVIEW
