TATUNG TRC-10DC White Direct Heat 10 Cups (Uncooked)/20 Cups (Cooked) Electric Rice Cooker
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs NOT a twin of the National brand!! 02/10/2015

This review is from: TATUNG TRC-10DC White Direct Heat 10 Cups (Uncooked)/20 Cups (Cooked) Electric Rice Cooker

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Cheap

Other Thoughts: This is a review to counter the bad information in the "Edward L" review submitted on 1/21/2015 3:25:34 AM. I do not own this rice cooker yet, but am considering purchasing one while it's on sale. But I do have important information to help others decide if they want to buy this.

National is one of the brand names of Panasonic, who is based in Japan and is a quality manufacturer.

Tatung is a ENTIRELY separate company that's based out of the Taiwan and while they generally produce better products than a similar China based company would, they are NOT up to the standards of a Japanese based company like Panasonic!

Note that both Panasonic/National and Tatung have China based manufacturing plants, but their standards are higher than the local companies in that area and they both product good products as a result.

But the difference in quality is like a Ford Fiesta (Tatung) vs. a Lexus ES 350 (Panasonic/National)! Both good cars, but I would prefer the low end Lexus over the low end Ford any day!

"Edward L" is reviewing the National brand rice cooker because it looks like the one in the picture. So his review is actually NOT on the Tatung rice cooker, AS IT SHOULD BE, but on the National one which would cost 2 to 3 times more (similar to the Fiesta vs the ES 330).

It's important to the potential buyer to understand that if they purchase this rice cooker, the will get the lower quality Tatung cooker and not the one that'll last ten years from National!

Patriot Viper 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Desktop Memory w/Futuremark 3DMark Vantage Key Bundle Model PVS24G6400LLKNB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast RAM, extended heatsinks, rebate

Cons: Had to set timings manually, but I was using a non-EPP motherboard so that would be expected.

Other Thoughts: I'm using 8GB with a Core2 Quad system and Vista 64-bit and after manually setting the timings and the voltage these run reliably (which is what I need as this is a video editing system I make a living on). I have run each of the OCCT tests for 8hrs or more and it passed without errors using the 4-4-4-12 timings and 2.1v.

I'm glad I bought them 3 months ago when they were cheaper, but they are still a great value when compared to the alternatives. BTW- just received my rebate check a couple of weeks ago, one of the faster and least problematic rebates I've submitted in a while - thank you Patriot!!

Antec earthwatts EA430 430W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.0 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Clean and stable power, good PFC (0.99 in actual use), ample power connectors

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This has been a great power supply, reliable, very clean and stable power output. I use it on a Core2 Duo system with a single SATA hard drive, DVD-RW drive, a Sapphire HD 3870 video card and 3GB of DDR2 memory.
