Pros: The Nifty Fifty! Great Glass, fast aperture at F1.8, fast AF through screw drive, great Bokeh!. Been using this on a D200. IF your using this on a DSLR DX format with screw drive (D1,D2,D50,D70,D80,D90,D100,D200,D300,D7000) Do note that it is actually a 75mm Focal Length, due to not being on a full frame camera, since this was designed mostly for Film use. For a DX camera I suggest 35mm DX lens. You can still use it, but your not getting its full potential as a lens, also it will not work as good in close range as the 35mm will (I own both) Also works great with Reverse Lens Macro Photography (look it up!)
Cons: No Cons, just do your research when buy it for your camera, make sure its compatible. IF you have a cheaper Nikon with no AF motor, get the 35mm DX.
Overall Review: Best use, Film and FX format CMOS sensors.
OK, but really really slow
Pros: Cheap, no cap to loose.
Cons: Very, very slow, I was maxing out at 1.7MB/Sec on WIN7 trying to transfer 2GB of wedding pics to it, was going to take over 1 hour, this is just really bad. For a few bucks more you can get much better sticks. This is sad, I own an older AData stick that they discontinued and it is much, much better.
Overall Review: Spend a few extra bucks, get a Xporter.
I don't know why they still sell these
Cons: Backblaze just published their report on the failure rate of 4000 of these drives, and its at 32%. To keep that in perspective the also have 2500 Hitachi's going as well, but they only had a failure rate of 4% which is much better. Seagate needs to pull these drives from the market immediately.
Overall Review: More than likely Seagate had a rush to make these after the floods to corner the market, however in doing so they are lemons for sure.
Good Camera, old tech
Cons: old tech
Overall Review: They are trying to sell these now since the 3200 is coming out in a matter of weeks, once it does, you can get the 3200 at almost the same price as this. I would wait and get the 3200 and get a camera that's 2x better, or, wait until the 3200 is out, and the price on the 5100 plummets.
Pros: Absolutly love this little guy. Scans fast and easy, and is very high quality. I use it to scan photo's mostly and have done some great resto projects with it. the 4800dpi is perfect. its also slim and fits on my desk nicely.
Cons: honestly there isn't any. Wish the bed was bigger, but I knew the size when I got it.
Overall Review: Buy it!
Decent for the price
Pros: Cheap considering other brands. IR remote works with multiple bulbs at once, which is what I wanted, so you get even fades among multiple bulbs. I got 2 to fit inside tall slim paper lamps for a wedding decor to pump out red, and it will do just that fine.
Cons: OK, here's where it gets bad, you cant really program the bulb at all, meaning you cant set it to transition or flash between specific colors, its all preset. Flash is just R-G-B over and over, and the fades are through all colors. Strobe doesn't do anything but switch back and forth each time you press the button.
Overall Review: OK for a budget bulb for decor to switch between solid colors only.
