Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale-Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good Utility Scale 01/11/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale-Retail

Pros: Inexpensive, small form factor, capacitive touch buttons.
It's a good scale for general purpose needs. If you need beyond 1 gram precision, get a lab scale.

Cons: Sometimes the buttons need to be pressed a few times to operate.

OLYMPUS VN-702PC USB PC Interface Digital Audio Recorder
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent Recorder 11/14/2013

This review is from: OLYMPUS VN-702PC USB PC Interface Digital Audio Recorder

Pros: Easy to set up, easy to record, easy to transfer content to your computer.

Cons: The transfer rate is very slow (from internal memory). If I had to record more content, I would use the micro SD card slot and a card reader. Sometimes the microphone picks up interference and playback contains some clicks and beeps.

Other Thoughts: In general, it is a great recorder. I bought it for recording lectures at school, and it performs quite well. The options to filter the mic input for speech are very handy as well, removing most of the booming you'll get from air systems and general din.

Western Digital Blue WD5000AAKX 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Incredible value ($/GB) for a Western Digital product.

Cons: The drive does hum occasionally. Perhaps it is under heavy read / write from the computer.

Other Thoughts: As with most things, you get what you pay for. If you just need a drive to hold music, movies, documents, and you have most of it backed up already, you should be good to go.

I have read many reviews about "Dead on Arrival" drives, it is probably due to ESD (electrostatic discharge) events, and I noticed that this drive arrived in regular bubble wrap. The drive's static shielding bag should keep the drive safe, but bubble wrap is incredibly triboelectric. Some users may be inadvertently frying their drives with >20 kV discharges. Just a suggestion for sensitive equipment like hard drives and memory that don't ship in their own factory boxes, wrap them in antistatic foam to keep ESD event likelihood to a minimum.
