This review is from: Rosewill RTMT13001 Infrared Thermometer
Pros: Mine is quite accurate (when I point it at a digital home thermometer or thermostat, I get +/- 1 degree F).
It has a nice tight "spot" (1:12).
Has a nice wide range of temperatures it will read.
Cons: The instructions don't tell you how to open the battery compartment. They seem (to me) to suggest opening it from the bottom. When I couldn't get it open gently, I was concerned it would break (all plastic). So I called NewEgg. They gave me Rosewill's number (800-575-9885). Their support guy couldn't make heads or tails out of their non-instructions either, and had an engineer call me back. I deducted 2 eggs for all the phone calls. Really a shame: it's a totally decent product for a great price.
Also, as someone else mentioned, putting the battery in is neither obvious nor confidence-inspiring. But you can get it in.
Other Thoughts: So, how DO you open it? You just pull it out toward the front of the unit, grabbing it around the trigger. You don't have to pull hard, and it opens right up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CENTON DataStick Pro 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Grey) Model DSP32GB-001
Pros: It looks nice, and seems very sturdy.
Cons: Pretty slow. Mine died after a month and a half.
Other Thoughts: Their (newer) USB 3.0 sticks are much faster. Mind you, the difference has nothing to do with USB: USB 2.0 is plenty fast to keep up with the newer ones. At least Centon didn't hassle me (unduly) to replace it; otherwise, it would have been 1 egg.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: HooToo® HT-UH007 USB 3.0 HUB (4 Port, Bus-Powered, Built-in 1ft USB 3.0 Cable)
Pros: Plenty of room around plugs.
Delivers USB-3 speeds.
Integrated cord (you can't lose).
Power indicator LED (blue, of course).
Cons: Integrated cord is fairly stiff.
Integrated cord only about a foot long.
No external power option (bus power only).
Other Thoughts: As long as you are OK with the cord and don't need a lot of current (you can't charge 2 high-draw devices at the same time, for example), it seems to be an excellent product.
These limitations are both mentioned in the short product description, so it's not fair to deduct an egg for them.
(If you DO need a lot of current, you'll need a hub with an external power supply that plugs into the wall.)
