Pros: The Toshiba Thrive is a great tablet, it has a full USB port, full HDMI and a mini USB, charges fast compared to other tablet, just over 3 hours 100%. Can change the battery.
Cons: Support from Toshiba, camera (so so quality). It took a while to get ICS in the toshiba while pretty much all the other competitors already had them, and no one was even sure it was going to be issued....
the screen quality is not very good, specially if you compare it with the Samsung couterpart.
Other Thoughts: Nice tablet. If you want a tablet and don't want to carry more than the necessary adapters, or if you use a lot USB flash drives, this is great. From time to time I fix computers and if I don't have my laptop when I need to download something I download it in the tablet, then put it on a USB. It supports Flash, (if you have patience, don't think that Flash is going to behave as it does on a computer)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Koutech IO-RC522 All-in-one USB 2.0 Card Reader / Writer
Pros: Excellent card reader, reads a lot of different cards, it's small.
Cons: The USB cable is short, and some times it's confusing to see where to put the card, it says that you can set the icons for each port instead of the default from windows but instructions are scarce and could not do it. just minor details, that don't affect the performance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Soleus Air CFM-40 40 Pint Dehumidifier White
Pros: It's quiet, I bought another one that I returned because it sounded like an old refrigerator, and I'm using it in my room. This one is much more quiet, and I can sleep easier in my room with it.
I read in several places that the dehumidifiers could be very noisy, specially the ones that cool down the air in the cold metal coils to condensate the water, fortunately this was made to be quiet
Cons: Unfortunately (in my opinion 'cause I live in florida), like most dehumidifiers, they heat up the air again, and that actually the air that comes out is a little bit warmer, and eventually brings up the temperature of the room, and since I'm using it in my living room, in the time to bring down the humidity from 60% to 40% @ 73F the temperature goes up between 5F and 7F depending also if I leave it on the whole time on or turn it off.
Other Thoughts: A 40 pint dehumidifier for a small living room of just over 10x10 feet is just too much but brings down the humidity pretty fast (like 20% in 15 minutes). I got in winter so it hasn't been used much, but still I got it because I have a collection of anime dvds boxsets in my room and clothes; I live in Florida, and my father leaves the back door to the yard open in SUMMER in the day for the dogs to come in and out whenever they want, and humidity in summer is just insane, plus the heat, so the house almost always have this bothering feeling of humid with an acutal humidity between 60% and 71% @ 78-79F. The air acconditioner, can bring down the humidity to 50% in 15 min. but with a door open the whole day is just a waste of energy and effort, so I didn't want to keep arguing, and got the dehumidifier. I'll probably get the an extension to the door for the dogs. but that's another issue.READ FULL REVIEW
