Cons: Toshiba now owns OCZ and they are not honoring most of the OCZ warranties. I had an SSD drive that went bad and did actually get a replacement drive. The drive they sent me was DOA so I called them up and was told that only the original drive is covered under warranty and even though we sent you a NON-FUNCTIONING drive that's just your tough luck.
Might as well have sent me a stick of bubble gum as what they sent me had ZERO value!
This review is from: TMP EPSON WORKFORCE WF-3640 INK CARTRIDGES (5-PACK) (COMPATIBLE)
Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: A little slow on delivery... not bad but you can tell this is NOT shipping from NewEgg.
I got the multi-color pack that has 2 XL Black cartridges and the 3 color cartridges. The first one I opened was one of the black cartridges. There's a little sticker that says "Pull" and as soon as I did black ink SPRAYED out of the top! I had ink on my hands, my furniture, the wall and a stack of tin-type photos from the 1850's that are just ruined.
After rinsing the cartridge off (at least two teaspoons of ink was still bubbling out the top), I installed the cartridge and did a head cleaning and a test print.
Total zebra strip output. So now on head cleaning #5 it's better but not what I would even call "passable".
I'll do a few more cleanings to see if it EVER improves but not looking good.
Other Thoughts: Figured that for this review I should at least try one of the other cartridges. This time I took the magenta cartridge and removed the sticker while standing over the sink with a towel over it. SAME THING!!! Ink came gushing out of the top of the cartridge. I did a clean up of the mess and with a heavy sigh, installed the cartridge.
Three more cleaning cycles and the magenta is totally unacceptable and the black cartridge has had almost NO improvement.
A totally useless, substandard product. I'll report back on how well their return process goes.
Any one know how to remove printer ink from fabric?
Pros: After my flaming review of the NUC5PPYH I'm happy to say this unit was successfully deployed, running Windows 10 Pro serving out a MS-SQL database. Works Great.
I test loaded Windows7 Pro, Window 10 Enterprise (OEM) and finally Windows 10 Pro. The Windows 7 Pro (customized with Intel's program to inject the USB 3.0 driver) that I could NOT get running on the NUC5PPYH installed perfectly. The Windows 7 install went fairly well even though my "Device Manager" showed a couple of items that it didn't have drivers for.
I downloaded and installed EVERYTHING from Intel's web site but never did figure out what items it was that were missing drivers.
After a couple of other smaller quirks I wanted to do further testing and both version of Windows 10 had absolutely no problems so that's what I went with and the unit has been rock solid for the last week.
Cons: Troubleshooting via Intel's web site is just a horrible experience. Just the question of what OS versions are compatible, they show many contradictions.
Other Thoughts: Intel is certainly THE big name brand but I think I would try one of the alternative manufacturers next time. MSI looks like they have a nice product and I'd probably choose one of those next time.
I took off a start just because I'm still recovering from the beating I took with the NUC5PPYH !
