Fuji FinePix 14MP 8x Optical ZoomDigital Camera, JZ100 Red
  • Verified Owner

3 out of 5 eggs Nice Camera, Broken USB Cable 02/09/2014

This review is from: Fuji FinePix 14MP 8x Optical ZoomDigital Camera, JZ100 Red

Pros: Camera has lots of features and takes good pictures.

Cons: Micro USB cable will not attach to camera. Double the normal force needed and it still fails to go in far enough. This reconditioned unit looks new, but close examination of the cable shows pin damage, probably from first user. Not sure if a generic micro cable will work,or if I need to purchase a Fuji JZ100 cable. I only hope it's just the cable and not the camera port.

Other Thoughts: I hope a new cable solves my problem. If it doesn't, I will be forced to take the memory card out and attach to my computer directly. Major hassle because the door for the card and battery is pretty weak, and could break off easily from repeated use.

Seagate Samsung Spinpoint M8 ST320LM001 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Inexpensive and arrived safely thanks to excellent packaging from NewEgg.

Cons: I strongly prefer Samsung Spinpoint over Seagate Momentus for personal reasons. The photos in this listing clearly shows a Samsung Spinpoint, Made in Korea. Must be an old photo. The 3 drives I have received since Seagate bought the Samsung division, are Made in China with Seagate Momentus written next to the Samsung Spinpoint name.

Other Thoughts: It appears that Seagate is relabeling their Momentus drives with the Samsung name. Based on past purchases of notebook drives, Samsung notebook drives were made in Korea, and Seagate drives are made in China. Did Seagate shut down the Samsung manufacturing plants? I don't really care who owns the Korean plant, as long as I'm purchasing Samsung designed, Korean manufactured drives as I am led to believe with this listing. The Key phrase in this listing is "Made in Korea" as printed on the label that's shown.

TRENDnet TEG-S8g Switch 8-Port Gigabit GREENnet 10/100/1000Mbps 8 x RJ45 8K MAC Address Table 128KB Buffer Memory
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good price, nice appearance, energy efficient.

Cons: Worked at 1gigabit for 2 weeks, then began dropping to 100meg. Resetting switch would bring it back up for a while. Seems to run hot and has the kind of smell that occurs when electronic components are overheating. I will move it to a cooler spot and see if that helps.

Other Thoughts: I use a 50' cat6 cable and only have 4 ports used. Perhaps moving it away from other electronic devices will allow it to run cooler and fix the problem. I will comment again if moving helps.
