Pros: Inexpensive - usually found on sale in a variety of capacities.
No failures in light applications (Raspberry Pi 3, cheap cameras, trail cams) in a variety of conditions.
Cons: Maybe not for critical application (cell phone) use. I'm seeing some one egg reviews that are furious.
Overall Review: I bought a range of these microSD cards from Team. 16, 32, 64 and some 128 GB while on sale last year. We used them in a variety of devices but mostly for 6 trail cameras used in New England. They are still working through the heat of two Summers and now their second Winter. Also used in those cheap action cameras which routinely go in the pool with kids and in the ponds for looking at fish.
Pros: Plug and play; immediately recognized at boot in bios of an ASRock 570M. Used for a fresh install of Windows 10.
Cons: Heat spreader doesn't allow me to use my other heat spreader that came with motherboard. I suppose it could be removed and replaced, but i don't want to potentially damage it.
Overall Review: I bought it for eighty nine bucks during Black Friday.
Pros: 4K monitor for a great price (two hundred fifty nine dollars on Black Friday 2018). The colors are comparable to the ASUS that this monitor replaced. So-so integrated speakers, but I won't use them much. Two HDMI ports are a plus. No dead pixels!
Cons: I'm not going to knock any eggs off, but I was under the impression that you could twist the orientation of the screen to a portrait position. It appears that you can only remount the monitor to the base to get this type of orientation. There is a slight bleed at the corners but only if I look for it on a high contrast setting.
Overall Review: After my last monitor experience, I opted for the 3-year Square Trade protection for twenty six dollars. Unknown if this gamble will have been needed.
Pros: Paired with a docking station it's a very versatile device.
Cons: Certain applications are annoying but the hardware is solid.
Overall Review: I didn't have any experience with tablets prior to getting this. Our family doesn't have a wireless internet plan for our phones but with wifi in our house and so common elsewhere this seemed a better value and it was. For instance, if we used Google Maps for directions on a road trip, another free GPS application provided a handy tracking feature that, to our surprise, indicated our position on Google Map. I'm just surprised at the overall value of this tablet. I don't want to consider the costs associated with an iPad or something of the like.
