This review is from: Foreverlamp A55 6W Omnidirectional A19 LED Light Bulb, Warm White
Pros: High light output, low price, warm light, 270 degree beam pattern
Other Thoughts: Some other bulbs have 120-180 degree beam spread. These have 270 degree beam spread. Some advertise warm light at 2700K, but are actually whiter. These really do look 2700K warm, like the incandescent bulbs they replace. Because the light is output in a 270 degree pattern instead of the normal 360 degrees that a normal incandescent bulb provides, they are brighter in the 270 degree area they are lighting. So, you will probably find them brighter than normal 40 watt bulbs. In fact, I'm replacing many 60 watt incandescent bulbs with these 40 watt equivalents because 60 watt equivalent LED bulbs are way too bright.
If these are to replace bulbs in directional desk lamps (like the animated Pixar lamp jumping around in the beginning of Pixar Movies), these will be wasteful. Buy some that have a 120 degree beam pattern so they focus all the light forward for these lamps.
These are great bulbs for fixtures that aim the bulbs UP. Because the beam spread is 270 degrees, they aim 45 degrees downward (45 degrees on two sides equals 90 degrees downward plus the 180 aiming upward reflecting off the ceiling totals 270 degrees).
These are also great bulbs for fixtures that aim the light downward, but have a glass bell around them. The light that aims upward still gives the warm glow through the glass bell and gives great ambiance that is lost with other bulbs that have a 120 or lessened with a 180 degree beam spread.
Pros: Inexpensive, clean, high end Core 2 Duo CPU (3GHz)
Cons: DVD did not open. This must be common as another reviewer had same problem and I bought some other refurbished HP towers from same company having 3 bad DVDs that also would not open. Going to RMA. One case had very hard time getting cover back on. But for the price, I can accept this.
Other Thoughts: DVD drives are cheap, so if they don't work either RMA or get another with no complaints at these good prices. Also suggest adding more memory. Supposed to come with only 2G, but some had 3G (3 sticks of memory). Three sticks make the system operate at single channel for memory instead of dual channel, which slows it down. Must install 2 or 4 sticks for dual channel operation.
Came with 32 bit Windows 7 Pro installed, but both 32 and 64 bit DVDs included. You can install the 64 bit version instead and activate BEFORE you run and activate the 32 bit version that comes with it.
This review is from: Cisco Small Business 200 Series SLM2024T-NA Smart Gigabit Switch SG200-26
Pros: It runs well as a plain gigabit switch.
Cons: My switch has been very problematic. Tried to set up a VLAN with no success. Rebooting will cause system to lose all settings, including password, and restore to factory default. Associate got VLAN working once, but upon reboot of system it went back to factory settings.
Other Thoughts: I'm sure this is a good switch, but I must have gotten a lemon. Time to RMA. If the new one works fine, I may give a few eggs back to the rating.READ FULL REVIEW
