Pros: Exceptionally Bright. Can be used in a defensive manner, to blind/dazzle briefly.
Cons: About US$10 more than it ought to cost. Operational time on a charge ca. 1-2 hrs, and rechargeable lithiums, so not your main hiking/camping lamp, though an excellent supplementary tool.
Other Thoughts: Don't actually have this one, but I have owned and bought a dozen like it or similar.
A search on "Cree 1000 lumen" should be able to find you the essentially same light for about US$10 and two 18650 batteries plus a charger for another US$10.
There are also Cree models that use 4x 18650s for US$30 and US$45, respectively, that rate at 3800 and 7000 lumens.
There are also Cree models that rate up to 2000 lumens, have adjustable focus, and utilize one of three: 1x 18650, 1x 26650, or 3x AAA. These cost US$10-15.
Granted, most of those are anodized black and not "silver", but they are rugged, solid, AND effective.
I haven't been unhappy with Rosewill in purchases, so they're a good company. I'm just noting that you should be able to get the exact same performance characteristics for about 2/3rds the price along with an additional battery.
But trust me, the Cree-based flashlights are the way to go for anything where brightness, as opposed to longevity, is of high value. As noted above, longevity on a single battery between 1 and 2 hrs, and, unless you get the above-mentioned 3xAAA model, not readily field-replaceable for extended camping or hiking, away from electrical sources.
This review is from: Acronis Disk Director 11 Home
Pros: Acronis is at least reliably functional, in my experience.
Cons: Support will be inadequate and expensive. Probably doesn't support the latest tech, unless you're lucky, and they'll charge you for the "update" that does.
Other Thoughts: Acronis used to be a great company, but now they are out to chisel every penny from you they can. I bought an earlier version of DD, because they had a good history, and I like to reward companies. This also offered them two additional sales of the True Home Backup product, too.
Came the time when I really needed to use DD, I discovered it did not support GPT disks -- despite the fact that I'd purchased it more than 2 years AFTER the release of Windows 7, which **requires** GPT functionality -- and I would have to pay a $25 fee to upgrade to a version that did support GPT.
I don't expect miracles -- but failing to support it TWO YEARS after release, then demanding a huge upgrade fee to get access to functionality that should have come with it on the day of purchase is ridiculous.
Instead I discovered an alternative, which supported GPT in its FREE edition, and who has since gotten my PAID purchase. And will continue to do so for the indefinite future.
I don't recommend or purchase Acronis products any longer. They are out to cheat you of every penny they can.
This review is from: Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 - White
Pros: Solid, good battery performance, attractive. Sharp screen. Good size for the price (MNSHO: 100 bucks more for 1 extra additional inch? Naw.)
Cons: No phone/data connectivity. Didn't think about that when I bought it. Might have seen how much the price difference would have been. Can still use my phone as a hotspot connection, but be conscious of this.
Other Thoughts: It's notably smaller than the Galaxy Tab 2, so finding a cover/case for it is tricky -- better to buy it, take it to a store like Office Depot, and see if you can find a case that fits -- there weren't any GTab3 specific cases available when I bought it.READ FULL REVIEW
