Most Favorable Review

Protection is great but needs communication improvement

Norton 360 Premium 2023 - 10 Devices - 1 Year with Auto Renewal, - Download
Norton 360 Premium 2023 - 10 Devices - 1 Year with Auto Renewal, - Download

Pros: Have used this product since Norton's for Windows 95. Have tried others but this has constantly been improving since the "slow days". Has multiple products with subscription to protect, backup and keep your data safe. Password Vault is excellent. Can be used on PC, Apple, iPhone, Android and is sync'd between by simply using the product on all these platforms. Incredibly fast install. Uninstalls completely in needed to reinstall.

Cons: Not fond of the new interface but is functional. Latest product "Sonar Protection" failed to function and failed to reinstall and failed to communicate why it failed. Problem was on my side but I expect some message or log entry that indicated why.

Overall Review: I'd give it 4 out of 5.

Most Critical Review

Sloppy Software UI

Acronis True Image Home 2011
Acronis True Image Home 2011

Pros: Software works. Backups and restores. Does good good job of imaging. Images of the OS are tight and can be restored later if a crash occurs. New feature can rotate backups so you can use limited space and rotate backup schedules. Has nice email notification of success/failure of backups.

Cons: Several features have been removed from 2010 version. Calander of schedule backups is gone. User interface on my Windows 7 machine has buttons in each window of my scheduled backups. These buttons are not readable because the boxes overlap the buttons. Sloppy interface. Software starts up loading with a big spinning "Please Wait" circle. Each time the software gets busy, no active feedback is available. Looks to be hanging but actually it will come back. Caught myself ending task because of this hang. It is much harder to view logs of the backups to see if there was any problems.

Overall Review: Customer service was Ok in straighting out my license registering. Downloaded and installed latest updates hoping UI was fixed but it wasn't. I have used Acronis products for many years. This release is sloppy. I haven't uninstalled it but I am very tempted to install 2010.

High performance but

Western Digital Ultrastar 8TB DC HC320 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Data Center Internal Hard Drive - 0B36452/0B36404

Pros: Great speed when running. Huge capacity. After research this drive should have the highest reliability of any I researched.

Cons: Drive shuts down too soon by default. This causes hangs in my system until windows gets a response from the drive. This is not a good solution for something memory intensive that only accesses the drive occasionally. Went into the setting of the drive properties and told it not to shut down for two hours. This basically eliminated the hang. Some information should have been passed to consumer but was not.

Overall Review: Gave it 4 stars because of the slow response when it is asked to respond after shutdown. This was resolved by properties but specs should have indicated this ability.

Pros: Lightweight monitor with good balance Easy to set up. No screw drivers needed Well packed to prevent damage Software included to set up multiple split screen scenarios.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Bought two of these and hooked them up for both games and photo editing. These have worked out very well.

Good Product

New Dual Car Cigarette Lighter Socket Splitter 12V/24V Charger USB Power Adapter for MP3/4 iPhone 4S iPad iPod Samsung S4
New Dual Car Cigarette Lighter Socket Splitter 12V/24V Charger USB Power Adapter for MP3/4 iPhone 4S iPad iPod Samsung S4

Pros: I have been looking for a plug like this for a while. this is a marine grade meaning it has rubber plugs to seal water out of the electronics. It works. It also produces the voltage to charge an IPhone 5s. This requires voltage on the data pins. The IPhone sees it as an approved charger on both the 2.1 amp and 1.0 amp USB plugs. I love it. It even comes with wire connectors and black mounting screws. Only draws 25 ma when not in use.

Cons: No on or off switch. This means it will take a measured 25 milliamps all the time from the battery. This will eventually run your battery down. Deep cycle batteries usually are in the range of 900 amp hours rated.

Overall Review: Would be nice to have on/off switch.

Great performance

Intel 320 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSA2CW120G3K5
Intel 320 Series 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) SSDSA2CW120G3K5

Pros: Installed this drive as my Win7 boot. Moved data to 2 T second drive. This combo seamed perfect. Performance was great. Capacity was OK but found if you have a lot of software or large swap file you can run out of space quickly. You need to redirect data to second drive.

Cons: Something hangs print spooler. Not sure if it is HP LaserJet print driver or Drive. Once it hangs it's lights out. I cannot even reboot. Forced to power off...hard. No item in event logs. Sometimes it prints one page then hangs.

Overall Review: Can't blame SSD yet. Most likely HP can't handle speed. Don't know why. Drive is Rock solid 99.9% of the time. I'm impressed and happy with purchase.
