This review is from: Acronis True Image 2014 Premium - 1 PC
Pros: Feature rich.
Cons: Very unreliable!!!
Other Thoughts: In the beginning, say 10 years ago, Acronis backup software was great. Easy to back up with and equally as easy to restore with. It just worked.
That has all changed. Now, the software is so feature rich that it is needlessly cumbersome to work with. Unless you have backed up a brand new, clean install, it is likely that the backup will not restore on your machine. It is absolutely terrible. Forget this software and use Microsoft's native Disk Imaging software which is now standard in Windows. It is very basic, and will actually allow you to restore an image which you have created. Reliability is everything when it comes to backups. Sadly, Acronis is not reliable. If you want to set yourself up for failure, buy and use this software.
This review is from: Vantec 2.5"/3.5"/5.25" SATA/IDE to USB 2.0 Adapter - Model CB-ISATAU2
Cons: I have no idea how well this device works. It came in the mail today and will not power up. Multimeter shows that the power cord from the wall to the brick is bad.
Other Thoughts: Maybe someone from Vantec will see this and offer to send me a new one. We will see.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Black & Decker GCO18SB-2R 18V Cordless Drill Driver with Two Batteries
Pros: You don't have to be a tech genius to rate this Black and Decker Drill Driver. Something like this either gets the job done...or it doesn't. This piece of equipment will do the job as long as it does not take too long. This is definitely a "light use" piece of equipment, suitable for only the lightest duty around the house.
Cons: My experience with this is that the life of both batteries is extremely short. If left unused for 10 days they will need to be recharged 3 or 4 hours before use. Not a ringing endorsement by any means. Try something else.READ FULL REVIEW
