Sliced-Bread...move OVER !

Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 2923B002 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner
Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 2923B002 2400 x 4800dpi 48bit USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Interface Flatbed Scanner

Pros: I've used the 80 model for several years now, and this is another Great model ! Light, Sleek, powered-by the USB port ! Scan to PDF ! It's ALL good !

Cons: As a User none. As a Tech Support Professional...also none.

Overall Review: Some mentioned the noise. The motors are small and dampeners would at to the weight. It's not loud, just a kind of squeaky gear noise....and is indeed normal. If you need to share a scanner with others in the office/home, then this [or another of this line,] is the scanner for you

Most Critical Review

want quality ? Look elsewhere.

SYBA SD-U2F-35PT Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB & 1394 External Enclosure
SYBA SD-U2F-35PT Aluminum 3.5" IDE USB & 1394 External Enclosure

Pros: it works. Everything else you can say about this product is a negative comment.

Cons: The cooling fan does not point at the drive, so cooling is minimal, drive only touches the case in the plastic frame, so the aluminium housing cannot help dissapate much. The circut board is not attached to the frame AT ALL. As a previous commenter stated, the aluminium case does not go back in nearly as easily as it came out, and DOES shave-off some material; better hope you don't need to take it appart much.

Overall Review: If you will use this drive only to park backup images periodically, say weekly, then keep it off most of the time, it should performe well for you. If however you want a ready source of extra permanant storage....Look elsewhere, as heat will be a factor.

Eggxcellent

PHILIPS 700MB 52X CD-R Inkjet Printable 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model CR7D5JB50/17
PHILIPS 700MB 52X CD-R Inkjet Printable 50 Packs Spindle Disc Model CR7D5JB50/17

Pros: Inexpensive, purchased 200. Printing on them with an HP came-out supurb. Only a single bad disk out of 200.

Cons: As a User, none. As a Tech Support Professional, also none.

Can't configure it without CD & internet

TRENDnet TEW-631BRP 300Mbps Wireless N Broadband Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft
TRENDnet TEW-631BRP 300Mbps Wireless N Broadband Router IEEE 802.3/3u, IEEE 802.11b/g, IEEE802.11n Draft

Pros: signal strength = good config GUI = ok

Cons: out of the box it has NO IP assignment. You are FORCED to run a driver CD that will check for a working internet connection BEFORE doing anything else. Once the CD is done it will have an IP assignment for configuring.....VERY poorly done trendnet, I will not be buying any routers or w/routers for any other of my customers.

Overall Review: If a customer loses internet service and his ISP tells them to hard "reset" the router, as they are want to do........then it's going to be a bad day. When his internet comes back online, they will still not have service.

SAVED MONEY--DOES'NT WORK

Male S-Video to Female Composite Video Adapter
Male S-Video to Female Composite Video Adapter

Pros: Oh it fits the S-video connections just fine.

Cons: Does NOT actually pass through a signal.

Overall Review: If this is a one-direction only adapter....it SHOULD SAY SO. Most uses would need a BI-directional one. Got me a $24 one which is fatter...and it works fine.

Pros: The title says it nearly all. I have about a dozen in service this year. With zero reported failures.

Cons: One time they sent me a white one when I ordered the black one....

Overall Review: I wish dual burner drives read CDs faster....but oh well, can't have everything !
