New cptr to old printer - works most of the time

SYBA Model SD-USB-P 0 ft. USB to Printer Port Adapter
SYBA Model SD-USB-P 0 ft. USB to Printer Port Adapter

Pros: Allows me to hook up my old HP Laserjet IIIp, which only has a parallel port (the big Centronics type), to my new computer, which has no parallel ports, only USB. Better than installing a card to add parallel port capability to my computer.

Cons: Sometimes when you turn the printer on, then print something, it just won't print out. The Windows print queue says "Error in printing". I've found that unplugging the USB cable from the computer, then plugging it back in, always fixes the problem, and the document just prints out then.

Most Critical Review

Very loud fan

Rosewill RFA-120-K - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Sleeve Bearing, Silent
Rosewill RFA-120-K - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Sleeve Bearing, Silent

Pros: - Cools well (I assume) - Installed easily.

Cons: - It is very loud. The fan it replaced sounded like its bearing was going bad, and had a clicking sound. This new fan is even louder than the old fan that was going bad and clicking. The power rating on this one is higher than the power rating on the one it replaced, which could be the reason it is louder.

Overall Review: I have had the fan installed for about 5 days, and it seems to work fine. It is just a loud fan, and we would rather turn the computer off when not using it than have to listen to the loud noise created by this fan.

Reliable Bluetooth mouse

Pros: This Logitech Bluetooth mouse just works. I connected it to my MacBook Pro with no issues, and started using it right away. It works well. The scroll wheel is convenient for scrolling through web pages. You can configure the mouse track speed, the scroll wheel scroll amount, and reverse the primary button (for left-handed users). I received the mouse within 6 days of ordering it.

Overall Review: I recommend this mouse to anyone with a computer with Bluetooth capability, as you don't have to take up a USB port for a wi-fi mouse, and you don't need to mess with a cord.
