This review is from: ADATA Premier 32GB microSDHC UHS-I CLASS 10 with Adapter
Pros: not a one
well,the yellow was appealing on the usb drive
Cons: i bought two 10 class minis and two 32 GIG USB3 and two 16GIG USB3s.
I put the first mini in my Samsung TL225 camera. Worked good for a couple weeks.
Also backed up several important files on the 32GIG USB drives. All Adata.
One day I was using the camera and upon plugging it in via the proprietary USB I was waiting a long time to copy files and for folders to open. I was surprised because up to then it had been the fastest mini SD I had used. After an eternity I gave up and then realized I could not eject the camera because the cards drive letter had disappeared.
I quickly powered down the computer and then rebooted and tried the card with a USB reader[IO gear] which i had used many many times before.
after 3 or 4 more tries it started simply booting the cards drive letter...then a few seconds 'do-doo', it was back.
repeat repeat...finally it stabilized and instead of 5 folders and several sub folders of a month of data for court...hundreds of folders in ascaii-looking script, i.e. corruption
I was beyond frustrated.
I opened the second mini. This one i couldnt even get to read in my camera or card reader without its drive letter playing peek-a-boo ( all in Win7x64 UL and/or Win7 x86 H.P.). To top it off, when i checked the two 32GIG USB drives BOTH were garbage. You could see the file structure but try clicking a folder and wait...wait....wait....
instead of bother i just gave up
a bad batch of flash memory? what other excuse is possible?
Other Thoughts: Im sure I will never get these again. and fortunately all but one were 2nd or third backups so the only damage done to me was 5-6 GIGs worth of pictures and short vids that I need for court coming up soon. Also, I did try a micro to mini adapter and stuck that in a couple different laptops. Every time the result was the same.
Irreplaceable data. That was why I was as a standard making three separately located copies of all data. Which was great for all but the one card.
I dont need a 'whoopsie' manufacturer, I could use help paying the 700.00 that drive savers is getting for (hopefully) recovering that camera card.
This review is from: BOSS Office Products B317-BK Task Chairs
does not move unless you flip and and move screws.
does not have recline bar.
so far,casters decent
Cons: does not have recline bar, though i was tired of those getting wornout
chair back could be 6" higher
Other Thoughts: work chair/at desk chair. one for at home and a few for the office (repair shop)
just what i wanted, and i have always been loyal to executive-style chairs. but, simplicity has its perks. on sale under 75.00 its a no brainer. full retail (which ive seen from 110-150) i would wait.
This review is from: HealthPro Titanium Straw & Stainless Steel Ice Cubes Drinkers Kit
Pros: they are easy to clean; they (if cleaned and dried properly prior to freezing) offer no addition of any kind of flavor to drinks,which is the point
Cons: the straws need modification. i too mine to a jeweler that works with titanium. i straightened two of them (for talls) and cut two (for coctail-size). The angle they are at out of the box is not useful.
Other Thoughts: as far as the straws, once modded,cool,and easy to clean
the cubes, well ice serves a purpose besides keeping stuff cold. as a former bartender i can tell you many dif drinks are designed with the ice in mind.....ice seasons, and yes ice melts...but liquors are designed in their prospective drinks to break with the ice and it changes the delivery. a lot. so using these,for me, it has to be certain things. specificly, the best, is glasses of water. most people i suppose would think thats opposite as water is the only t hing you wouldnt care if is 'watered down', but i like my drinks to have the slow melt. thats why we add more ice each time. anyway, for glasses of water while sitting at the computer,or with dinner, works great. they last/stay cold from 10 min to an hour depending on how cold your liquid is. but they freeze up pretty fast.
