This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46
Pros: Fast fast fast. I run portable apps and my other USB 3 drive was pathetic. The SanDisk is a huge improvment.
Cons: Do not care for the form factor. It is very long. I have not seen this big of a flash drive in quite some time..quite awkward in a laptop. Also I have had some difficulty with the thumb slide on it already getting stuck. I have only been using it a couple of weeks so am worried about that.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This is easy to open up to install the hard drive and memory (or msata if you wish). Quiet and inexpensive.
Got this to replace my old Foxconn Booksize box which had a problem with the power plugin on the motherboard and it kept shutting off. This model is a nice upgrade to my old one. I love the aluminum case and the power button is nice and easy to find...even better it was cheaper. I did have to buy new memory though, it is DDR3 and I only had DDR2. Runs OK, I mean these things are not powerhorses. I am only using it to stream video from a dropcam. I don't know how it would work with other applications. The fanless thing kind of freaked me out at first, but everything runs fine. The only noise I hear from it is the hard drive every now and then (older non-ssd laptop drive).
Cons: Documentation was pretty sparse.
Other Thoughts: Main point I learned...that little USB drive that comes in the box has all the drivers. I thought it was just a nice little item for storage. I went to the Foxconn website to get the drivers, saw the manual with actual information and learned it was on that. Boy did I feel dumb!
I could not get XP to install on this and there are no drivers for it anyways. Had Windows 7 32 bit and all was good.
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8 Professional Upgrade
Pros: I don't know why people say this is as bad as Vista. I say it is much worse. At least Vista looked decent and not like a freaken daycare. To keep with the theme, the icons in MS Office 13 look like children's blocks. Microsoft must be laughing that they can push these insulting themes on the public and the public is saying "this is how the interface is, deal with it".
I don't know of any other operating system such as Mac or Linux that is so unintuitive. Get over yourself Microsoft and make a usable OS for Business and Adults!
Cons: Took me hours even with a tutorial to figure anything out. Not worth the headache. Am shocked to see wonderful Windows 7 being suceeded on by this atrocity.READ FULL REVIEW
