Pros: Great machine!! If you dont want to spend alot, but want a machine with good performance & you can upgrade so you can have for a while, then this is a great machine!!
Its small enough to take with you everywhere, but large enough that if you have fat fingers, like me, you can still type & work without constant clumsy accidents & frustrating squinting while looking at the screen. Fast processor, decent ram (I would upgrade), decent Hard drive (I would upgrade). Its a great machine for the price. Small, light, but packs a powerful bite! PLus if you need to work on the go for a while, it also has a 6 cell battery to keep you going!
Cons: Mostly DELL. No joke, when I went to the dell support page for some quick info on upgrading my laptop, the dell sit did not have my service tag in their system, as if my machine didnt exist. Worse is when I entered live chat the rep tried to convince me that my machine only had 1 GB DDR2 RAM installed & could only be upgraded to 2 GB!!! He then tried to tell me that my laptop had 6 RAM Slots!!! Why would it have 6 if I could only upgrade to 2 GB I will never know!! By the way it took me an hour & a half & i never got any useful info from dell!
The machine is great, just dont expect it to be a $1200 alienware PC for this price! Its great for on the go work, great to upgrade & keep alive for a while!
Not really a con considering the price, but the size of the HD & amount of RAM. Easy fix for under $100, still a great Notebook
Other Thoughts: I upgraded the RAM (4 GB) for about $13 through Newegg of course & a 750 GB hybird drive for $49.99 also through Newegg. This thing Purrrs!! start up is around 13 seconds, all apps start super quick, multitasks awesome!! Battery lasts forever (just kidding) I love the HDMI, the SRS could be a bit better, but not really a con since I dont really use it. The 4 eggs are mainly for DELL, I used to love them, but not so much anymore. You really shouldnt have any complaints considering the price.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MOTOROLA T325 Black In-Car Bluetooth Speakerphone
Pros: Real simple device, works exactly as it's advertised. very small, but sturdy unit (metal clip verses typical plastic). Clamps onto sun visor or similar location. Mountable if you know how to & feel like the little extra work (mountable tools & mount not included or advertised for product). Battery lasts a long time, slightly less than described (talk time a little shorter than advertised, but stand by time is about the same), but very good. Voice recognition is good, syncs all contacts, easy programming. loud speaker (does not sync personalized ringtones like some do, but the supplied ringtones are loud enough to be heard over the radio & or open window), noise reduction is good, not excellent but better than most blue tooth head sets. large buttons, I like for easy use without looking (while driving).
Cons: Battery is a little disappointing. The sync abilities are limited, but for the price I paid ($19.99) you just cant beat it! No real cons to speak of. I only took an egg off because it is on the cheaper end with limited features of blue tooth units Ive owned, Ive had alot of them I might add.
Other Thoughts: Its much easier than most blue tooth units. My other car has blue tooth standard built in & it has a ton of blue tooth features, like playing music from my phone, & text/e-mail to talk etc, but it is an ordeal to simply make a call (it can take 5 full minutes to answer all the questions to make a call), this thing is as simple as pressing a button, & saying the name, & its ringing. in the end if you see it on sale buy it, It allows me to charge my head set & still be able to be hands free while driving, & its cheap, & works well for the price!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cavalry CAUG Series EN-CAUG-Y Aluminum 2.5" Yellow USB 2.0 External Enclosure
Pros: Very slim, LED indicator light, Aluminum body, & its snap connect design, all make it a rare buy for the price!!! If you know what your buying, because some buyers here do not & then complain afterwards, then you should really like this enclosure.
Cons: The color might be a con for some, for me there are only a couple of cons; one is that there doesn't seem to be any real shock absorption for the drive. Although unless you buy an enclosure that is ruggedized for shock, then none of them fully protect against shock, some do provide more protection than others by design, & this one doesn't provide much at all. But knowing that it was a slim enclosure at purchase, it wasn't much of a surprise. The only real con for me is the enclosure is somewhat tough to re-open after you have closed it. It snaps into place & is a tad bit tricky to re-open. I have many enclosures, & I always prefer quick connect enclosures so if I needed I could quickly switch between drives in a single enclosure without screwing drives in & out, with this one, the snap connect feature might be slower than screws.
Other Thoughts: I rather enjoy the color only because I swap out all of my old laptop drives eventually & have plenty of identical drives laying around & have to label them so I can distinguish them, so the color, although not my preference, is welcomed for me. It does what I need it to do, so its worth every penny for me. No real cons worth not purchasing more of them.READ FULL REVIEW
