Most Favorable Review

Great camera!

OLYMPUS SP-590UZ Black 12.0 MP 26X Optical Zoom 26mm Wide Angle Digital Camera
OLYMPUS SP-590UZ Black 12.0 MP 26X Optical Zoom 26mm Wide Angle Digital Camera

Pros: My first outing with this camera was to take it with me for a whole day at the State Fair Of Texas. After spending the whole day taking pictures, the batteries were barely used. Every picture came out perfect except one or two when I was zoomed in really close. This camera is very easy to grip and take pictures with one hand. Zoom is very fast.

Cons: For really high zoom, you'll need a very steady hand, or a tripod. I don't think this is really a con, but it's something to keep in mind.

Overall Review: This is a replacement for my Olympus C765. I was initially worried about having a camera that used AA batteries instead of an included rechargeable lithium ion battery, but I was very impressed with the battery life. I will buy some rechargeable AA batteries and a charging unit to avoid having to buy AA batteries all the time. Nonetheless, I have yet to see the included batteries run down after having this camera for several days.

Broke within 3 months

Patriot Memory 32GB Supersonic Boost XT USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 150MB/s Durable Rubber Housing (PEF32GSBUSB)
Patriot Memory 32GB Supersonic Boost XT USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 150MB/s Durable Rubber Housing (PEF32GSBUSB)

Pros: Very fast data rate.

Cons: Bad construction resulted in this thing breaking after only 3 months. I keep this thing in my pocket all day. The rubber exterior should give the internal parts enough protection against day to day use. When I pulled the drive off of my computer, the outer case came off, and left the internal part in the USB port. I noticed that a plastic gasket that holds the internal part in the outer case had broken. I noticed that some other people who have reviewed this product have said the same thing. Clearly, this is a manufacturing defect.

Overall Review: I was surprised that a product made by Patriot would be this poor in build quality. This doesn't mean I won't buy this brand again, but I definitely will not buy their thumb drives that are made this way.

Great headset!

Logitech H390 USB Computer Headset - 981-000014

Pros: Works with every app that I needed it for. My Skype and Facetime calls are always crystal clear. This headset has a really long USB cable, so if you need to move around while you're on a call, you wont' feel tied down. This is a very comfortable headset. I can keep it on for hours if needed.

Cons: None

They don't hold their charge

Panasonic BK-4MCCA8BA Eneloop AAA 2100 Cycle Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries (Pack of 8)
Panasonic BK-4MCCA8BA Eneloop AAA 2100 Cycle Ni-MH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries (Pack of 8)

Pros: None. They're horrible.

Cons: They lose their charge quickly and they don't keep their charge while being stored.

Overall Review: I bought 16 of these batteries recently, and all of them have failed to keep their charge for long. The only thing that's good about them is that they charge up really fast.

Failed within one day!

ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface
ORICO 3519SUS3-BK Aluminum Alloy HDD External Enclosure with E-SATA and USB3.0 Interface

Pros: Nice outer construction. Easy to insert hard drives.

Cons: This unit is very noisy with the fan turned on. As a result, it's totally useless as a desktop drive. It failed less than one day after I received it. The included instructions are written in very bad English.

Overall Review: DO NOT BUY THIS ENCLOSURE!

FAILED within just 2 months!

BUFFALO MiniStation Thunderbolt 1TB 2.5" USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt Portable Hard Drive Model HD-PA1.0TU3

Pros: Great transfer speeds (when it works)

Cons: Thunderbolt port FAILED after just 2 months!

Overall Review: After only 2 months, the Thunderbolt port failed. I bought this drive specifically to use as a Thunderbolt drive with a MacBook Pro late 2011, so USB 3 is not an option. When I contacted Buffalo support about the problem, they told me that the policy is for me to return the drive AT MY EXPENSE, wait 3-5 days, and then they would send a replacement. The whole process would take about 7-10 business days. That is not acceptable. I have had a couple of Seagate drives fail, and on both occasions, they offered me an advance replacement option, and they did not charge me for shipping the product back to them. I will NEVER buy another product made by Buffalo again.
