Terrible Flash Drives
Pros: I have bought the 16GB and 32 GB versions. They will work for a few weeks/months then they die. I store NOTHING important on them. I just use them to move data from 1 PC to another. Failure mode is they are not seen by the computer. Can't access them or format them.
Overall Review: Junk
Works for a Compaq CQ60
Pros: Flakey things going on with my CQ60. Sometimes the power led on the CQ60 would be on, sometimes off. It really seemed to be a mechanical problem inside the CQ60. I figured I would try this AC Adapter that I had bought as a kind of universal spare. It had the right power adapter in the box, plugged it in and away she went. The old adapter plug came straight out of the laptop, this one is at a 90 degree angle. This is a much better design. I am happy.
Overall Review: I just love the EGG!
Wrong Memory Size
Pros: This is my second one of these. Great Little Camera. My 15 mile commute is crazy. I use one as a dash-cam. Every day some idiot does something stupid in front of me, now I will have proof if something happens.
Cons: This camera does NOT have 64M memory in it. On the package it says 16M and even that is not all usable. I can use, at most, 8.5 Meg to record with. 2000mA ENELOOPS get me at least 2 hours of recording. A 4Gig card, on the highest quality picture setting, gives me an hour of recording.
Pros: Works good. Runs fast. Powers on and off fast. Pix quality good both video and still mode.
Cons: I am connecting it up to a Vista system. With no SD memory card plugged in, it shows only 8.8 MB of memory not 64MB memory as in the spec. The largest video I can take is 8MB in size. Works fine with an SD card in it.
Pros: I have 2 of them. Someone wrote that you need a fan for all 3.5" drives. Only if your hard drive runs hot. Most of the drive is exposed to convection is enough to cool the drive. Some of my older, 250G drives runs hot and I don't use them in this enclosure. My 500G drives run fine. The heat problem is a drive problem, not this enclosure's problem.
Cons: I like them so much,, I might have to buy a third.
