Quick install with zero issues on initial boot, like always with Corsair RAM
Pros: Getting to 32GB so I can safely leverage larger video cards Matches more of the case, without a silly blue color like my old 16GB pair of Vengeance RAM
Cons: It doesn't tell me sweet nothings, or auto upgrade my dinosaur PC to DDR4
Overall Review: I did not touch this in terms of overclocking.. I just want a rock solid experience and Corsair always seems to deliver
it worked for my needs, with caveats
Pros: Good screen runs Lollipop light
Cons: No space (8GB of it) No RAM ( less than 1GB) Rear facing speaker LG's version of Android has minor annoyances, but especially the poor keyboard implementation. Just download Googles.
Overall Review: mine has died almost to the DAY I bought it a year ago. I'm almost not mad because this thing is slow after it is loaded up.. I think going forward it'd be better to just get a maxed out phablet and not have to deal with managing multiple devices on limited space.
Disappointing when compared
Pros: Mobile and Website are modern looking, responsive, and inviting to browse.
Cons: No read out on the device.. only dots that blink to signify things (Good luck remembering) Battery life is requiring charging every other day, and uses a proprietary connector that no one else but fitbit owners have. inaccurate compared to hip worn trackers (when I was working on our apartment, had extra 25% steps compared to hip worn tracker) the wrist piece breaks so easily, you'll need to super glue it back together over and over again. They fixed this in later versions of FitBit, but not here.. so be gentle when taking the piece in and out of the strap.
Overall Review: I think Fitbit knows what they're doing, but this device was an iteration on a arc of devices.. and I want something a bit more durable.
Quality cabling that's flicker free
Pros: Braided cord feels and looks great I cannot discern any loss of quality from my old shorter cable. Running Windows 7 x64 with an EVGA 560 Ti , and I love the new found flexibility with this length
Cons: with this much length, you may need to find a place to hide the cord.
Overall Review: It's a braided cord, so it's flexibility is not the best... however I'll take that over having something that bends and degrades over time.
Never failed me
Pros: This router will run day and night, with no input from the user. No dropped connections. QoS sounds great..
Cons: The QoS is difficult to setup manually.. I guess that's why the next generation uses the cloud to get input from everyone using the router.. You may see the lack of this feature as a con.. or a pro if you're a privacy nut like I am. Sometimes the wireless can cut out, if you're not using QoS.. and downloading a huge file on one machine.. while others need access.
Overall Review: This router is a steal at it's current price. Wait for AC spec to improve adoption and features..
Stopped working in time for refund, phew
Pros: this keyboard looked nice, felt okay with the rubberized keys, and I was beginning to get used to the 'low-rise' keys.
Cons: This keyboard stopped working, meaning pressing keys didn't do anything. I'm experiencing the same thing as others and had to reconnect the device to my Windows XP machine.
Overall Review: On startup when I entered my bios password the keys would ALWAYS stick.. not sure why. This was being used on a laptop so I ignored it, but I should have taken that as an immediate bad sign.
