This review is from: D-Link DSP-W110-4P Mydlink Wifi Smart Plug (4 Pack), Supports IFTTT and ECHO
Pros: Works OK as (only) a phone-based remote control, as long as you don't want it to be a timer, too.
MIGHT work if you have an iPhone.
Gives you a chance to experience NewEgg's excellent customer service as you return it.
Cons: Does not do any but the simplest functions with Android.
Can not be used with their website. (Package has myDlink branding, but unit does not have a myDlink number.)
With Android, it usually does not save the schedule you set with the app.
Even when it does save the schedule, the unit turns on but not off.
Other Thoughts: Do not buy this. You have been warned.
If you have an iPhone, and you are feeling brave/reckless, there is a chance it might work properly.
As soon as you register the unit (following the directions), it tells you to Click Here to update the firmware. Some units will be "damaged" (in the words of Tech Support) by doing that. Call them (877-453-5465) before you do, to see if you're supposed to update your unit or not. (Their email- and web-based support are not helpful.)
Actually, just don't buy this. Life is too short.
It's really sad: D-Link used to be a good company.
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
