This review is from: SAMSUNG ML-D2850B High Yield Toner Cartridge Black
Pros: Lots more pages than the standard size cartridge. Much cheaper price per page. Free recycling with the Samsung Takeback and Recycling programme (STAR). Just fill out your name and address online and print the free mailing label. The Samsung ML-2851ND printer lets you squeeze as many pages from the cartridge as you dare. Doesnt force you to stop using the cartridge like other brands.
Cons: Only comes in black ;)
Other Thoughts: When it starts running low, rock (shake) the cartridge a few times to get more pages from it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Always test new drives with the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics utility! Run the extended test. It takes about 3.5 hours but its worth the time. I run the test multiple times and the full Write 0’s test. One of the 8 drives I have recently purchased passed the Quick Test but failed the Extended Test about 3/4 of the way through (too many bad sectors). Otherwise, I might have gone several years before knowing about all these bad sectors. Another drive (purchased from pr0v@nt@ge b/c NE was out of stock) was packed with NO padding under the drives. The D.L.D. utility reveals one drive is 3 to 10 times slower than the others. The Quick test even reveals they were “damaged by handling”. My proof for an RMA. NewEgg has gotten better at packing, Now they usually wrap in bubble wrap then put in a snug cardboard box.
Cons: Not fully tested at the factory. / It cost me $10 to return a defective drive. / NewEggs bubble wrap is ALWAYS popped on one side leaving the drive exposed to shipping damage.
Other Thoughts: When running the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostics utility, the full test will take 3.5 hours via SATA or eSATA, but 15 hours via external USB.
I called NE about an RMA issue (they gave me a refund instead of a replacement). I discovered they still list this item as *In Stock* even tho they have less than 20 and >10,000 order requests. He said a lot of orders will be credited rather than shipped.
This review is from: Canon DR-3010C Duplex Sheetfed Scanner
Pros: Much smaller and lighter than I expected. Fast. Easy to install. Easy to use. Great software. Quiet. I am amazed how quickly and efficiently this scanner turns 500 pages into a compact PDF file. AND it does OCR at the same time and embeds the OCR text into the PDF file so you can search or copy the text. The hidden OCR text is aligned with the image of the page. Incredibly useful. I was delighted to find how easy to use the CapturePerfect software is. It can even add (or replace) new pages to existing PDF files. It also comes with an Acrobat 8 Standard OEM CD for editing PDF files; that’s worth hundreds of $ if purchased separately. Most vendors give you ancient drivers, but I was surprised to find the drivers and software on the Canon install CD is up-to-date with the web site. Very thorough documentation. Canon gives you a lot of quality for your money. Duty rating is 3,000 sheets per day.
Cons: Wish the input tray was more than 50 sheets.
Other Thoughts: Our non-techie office manager usually shuns new equipment but she actually LIKES using this scanner! I was surprised how well it handled warped corners, staple tracks and binder holes.READ FULL REVIEW
