QA Concerns but Solid

Lenovo Laptop AMD A10-Series A10-5750M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8650G 15.6" Windows 8 G505s (59373010)
Lenovo Laptop AMD A10-Series A10-5750M (2.50GHz) 6GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon HD 8650G 15.6" Windows 8 G505s (59373010)

Pros: seemingly solid build, well equipped. runs quiet, nice screen size. Good mix of ports on it including USB3, LAN, and HDMI

Cons: offset mouse pad a bit of an adjustment. Modest battery life. First device arrived with a failed install of Windows on the hard drive. Easy RMA, but wondering about the QA that let it out of the factory with a failed image on the device.

Overall Review: I would have hoped their QA process would have assured an install of Windows before shipping. Newegg cross shipped a replacement for no charge, but Lenovo could have confirmed that the hard drive was imaged before shipping. Makes me worry about other QA work.

Flame out

RAVPower PB07 10400 mAh Black External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank (Dual USB Outputs, Ultra Compact Design), for iPhone, iPad, Mini; Samsung Galaxy, Note 3; HTC One, EVO; Google Nexus
RAVPower PB07 10400 mAh Black External Battery Pack Portable Charger Power Bank (Dual USB Outputs, Ultra Compact Design), for iPhone, iPad, Mini; Samsung Galaxy, Note 3; HTC One, EVO; Google Nexus

Pros: Small tight design. Charges well. Not too big or heavy

Cons: The small cube AC charger for the device was defective ( I hope) got fairly hot when I first used it but then noted that the next morning there was a electric burning smell in the area. USB charger outlet area had smoot on it and the device had clearly burned up internally overnight. Fortunately any flame was short lived

Overall Review: I guess any product can have a short and no harm done to the battery pack (or my house), but the smoke stains on the usb cord (which still works btw) are a litttle unsettling. Fortunately I have other wall adapters.

Cons: None

Overall Review: So far so good.

Everything except the internet

Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ USB 2.0 / Ethernet HD Media Player Only STCEA201-RK
Seagate FreeAgent Theater+ USB 2.0 / Ethernet HD Media Player Only STCEA201-RK

Pros: Plays everything well. Easy interface

Cons: Wifi set up is a pain. Using a suggested USB wifi, every time I turn it off, I have to reenter the WEP key to get it to connect and obtain a functional IP. Just upgraded the firmware and no dice.

Overall Review: I'd suggest it if you want to leave it on always or if you have LAN connection.

Great Price with State included

HR Block H&R Block At Home 09 Deluxe Win
HR Block H&R Block At Home 09 Deluxe Win

Pros: Given the price, I was worried that it wouldn't include the state program as indicated, but it did. Best price I could find. Downloaded and installed fine.

Cons: URL to download is really long and not active off Newegg receipt, so had to cut and paste. No Big deal

Works

Pros: Fits in and works

Cons: doesn't lock in quite as tighly as the OEM from Brother, but it works and prints.

Overall Review: half the price and works well
