GARMIN nüvi 1490T 5.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Died after 18 months. 03/29/2014

This review is from: GARMIN nüvi 1490T 5.0" GPS Navigation with Life Traffic and Bluetooth

Pros: Nice screen. Navigation works well.

Cons: Died after 18 months (during use). Would not start beyond the "Garmin" splash screen. Would not do a hard reset. This is a well recognized fault if you search the Web. Phoned Garmin tech support - confirmed that it had bricked itself, and outside warranty.

TP-LINK TL-WR1043ND Ultimate Wireless N300 Router, Gigabit, 300Mbps, USB port, 3 Detachable Antennas / IP QoS/ QSS Button
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap. Gigabit wireless n router. Good range.

Cons: User interface is not as good as my previous D-link. Filtering by MAC address is entirely manual. Status does not list connected computers. Help is not well written. An option to overcome this is to flash with open source firmware. I did not try this.
Made in China.

Other Thoughts: Newegg still insists on using foam peanuts for packing. They're a pain to dispose of and cannot be recycled. They should follow the lead of other retailers and change to something better for the environment, and easier to dispose of.

Western Digital Scorpio Blue WD3200BEVT 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Quiet. Cheap. Large capacity.

Cons: Installed on my Macbook. However, whenever the Macbook tried to sleep, it became unrousable. May be due to HDD sleep function. Reset Macbook PRAMs (helps with boot time), and SMC which had no effect on system freezing. Re-cloned internal drive, but did not improve.

Other Thoughts: May be an issue related to drive sleeping. I should not have to set the drive to never sleep.
Recently upgraded Mac Mini with 320GB Hitachi 2.5" without any problems.
