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
Pros: Small size, mountable almost anywhere, clear and bright picture in very low light when plugged into an AC outlet and using the HDMI input. It also has a built-in media server for pictures, audio and video files. There are many adjustment options for viewing different types of media, and it has a built-in amplifier suitable for a quality set of earbuds. I consider the built-in battery a bonus feature for small stints of needed portability. The P3 compares very favorably against many other pico projectors in its category. Just awesome for the price.
Cons: For the money I paid for it, the only thing I can think of is a lack of keystone adjustment (used to correct trapeziodal distortion when the projector is not completely at a 90-degree angle with the vireing surface). Also, the video is centered with the projector, so high or low mounting options may be limited without the ability to correct.
Found that if the HDMI cable is not securely attached to the projector, artifacts and, I think, an odor of something burning will emit from it.
Would not recommend going much bigger than the stated 80-inch specification, as the picture tends to be much less sharp and bright after exceeding it. Not really a con, just appears to be a design fact.
So small, it is possibly easier to misplace if not nailed down.
Other Thoughts: I love projects. And I fell in love with this projector after testing its suitability against my capabilities..
So much so, I bought another one just recently. Upon reading the specifications before I bought the first one, it was clear that the 50 lumens brightness might pose a challenge for viewing even with the curtains and shades drawn in any room. Glad to say that I was very surprised that this little projector performed well even in dim morning light on a small highly reflective screen. It does pitch an 80-inch diagonal viering area somewhat dimmer, and the small fan makes a bit of noise, but not much more than any full size projectors that I have used that cost four times as much.
So I built a ventilated, noise-cancelling cabinet the size of a picture frame, mounted it to the wall, and securely mounted the projector within the cabinet. When not in use, the projector and full-size screen on the opposite wall disappears from sight.
The AAXA P3 is a welcomed addition to my low-wattage HTPC setup. It actually outperformed two other full-sized DLP projectors that were previously used for this duty because of its HDMI port's sharper video. Have experienced no problems watching DVDs and streaming video from my personal media server, Netflix, YouTube and Google Play on either P3 from Windows or Linux. Exceeding the native resolution is not a problem at 1280x768 using a ten-foot interface. The video is crystal clear by my home projector standards.
Six months later, and still going strong!
