Most Favorable Review

Faster on USB 3.0

ADATA 32GB microSDHC Flash Card with Adapter Model AUSDH32GCL10-RA1
ADATA 32GB microSDHC Flash Card with Adapter Model AUSDH32GCL10-RA1

Pros: Getting sustained 18MB/sec write speed on USB 3 and 15.4MB/sec write speed on USB 2. This was sustained across the entire SDHC card.

Cons: Price was higher than competition but based on other reviews on performance I went with this card.

Overall Review: There is not much you can write up in a review on a micro sdhc card. 1) does it work, 2) does it perform. Yes on both.

Most Critical Review

Locks up - Defective

Zonet KVM3008 8 Port KVM Switch w/OSD
Zonet KVM3008 8 Port KVM Switch w/OSD

Pros: none

Cons: Per Zonet's support, I got a defective unit. Over the course of a week, this kvm locked up several times. Turning off/on doesn't fix it. You have to hit the reset button. I am using this remotely via an IP KVM. If you can't reset the kvm without physical access then don't buy this no matter how low the price.

Overall Review: Side note about Newegg: I wasn't returning this because of time constraints and costs. But Newegg read my review and offered an RMA without my even asking. Now that is customer service. I am glad I am a Newegg customer!

Slow write, average reads

OCZ Rally2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBR2DC-16GB
OCZ Rally2 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model OCZUSBR2DC-16GB

Pros: Cheap with discount code.

Cons: Not very fast. It must have some cache because I was getting 50MB/sec at the start. But copying 8x2GB files showed how performance quickly dropped. In the end I was getting 8MB/sec write speed. (speed measured by what Windows 7 reported during the copy) Read speed was average, getting 22.5MB/sec copying the same files.

Entertaining for a short time

Wii Game
Wii Game

Pros: Same format as the TV game show. 3 difficulty levels. Earn new characters.

Cons: There are a very limited number of variations. Each difficulty level only adds a few variations. My 6 and 8 yr olds beat the hardest level within a day.

Overall Review: While the kids did enjoy the game, I don't think it is worth spending this amount of money for a few days entertainment. The game will sit in its box within the next day or two.

Avoid-Complete lack of info on website

ZyXEL DMA1100PKIT-SP HD Digital Media Theater with Free PLA400 200 Mbps HomePlug AV powerline Adapter
ZyXEL DMA1100PKIT-SP HD Digital Media Theater with Free PLA400 200 Mbps HomePlug AV powerline Adapter

Pros: n/a

Cons: There is NO support on the ZyXEL website for downloading software, firmware, users guide, nothing. I see others have said Support helped them... but if nothing is available online then you can expect support to be GONE soon.

Overall Review: Run, do not walk, away from this product. Cheap as it is it is money wasted if you can't find information on the product.

Reviews are true. Don't buy it

ALTEC LANSING Behind the Neck Bluetooth Stereo Headset (BackBeat 903)
ALTEC LANSING Behind the Neck Bluetooth Stereo Headset (BackBeat 903)

Pros: Comfortable

Cons: Died after 24hrs. Others report it fails after it comes in contact with sweat but I can report it fails without sweating. I used it once and the power/controls no longer work. My review as an owner is in on the 906 which is exactly the same except it comes with a bt adapter.

Overall Review: Avoid it.
