Most Favorable Review

Works great now, Had a hiccup when I first started it up

Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Computer and Electronics Electric Blower | Electric Duster, White
Metropolitan ED500 DataVac 120 Volt Computer and Electronics Electric Blower | Electric Duster, White

Pros: -Solid, metal construction -Consistently puts out air at a pressure good enough to dust out my computer without compressed air cans. -Variety of attachments are nice -I love that it has a cord so I'm not worried about charging batteries. -Cord length is good. I haven't measured it but can stretch across my office from the wall plug (about 10 feet)

Cons: -When I opened it I plugged it in and pressed the button to start it up and it made a horrible grinding sound. I turned it off immediately but it was already smoking and smelling like burned rubber. I hoping to just resolve it myself so I took it apart and found that a wire nut had lodged itself in a part of the motor. I cleared it out. put it back together and it works great now. -The button that holds the attachments on to the air hole is very stiff making it hard to change them out -Pretty heavy and loud for how small it is but not really that big of a deal

Overall Review: I recommend this for the heaviest of dusting operations, just be careful when starting it up for the first time.

Great product for the price, keyboard doesn't work

Pros: Good price for what you get. computer, Wifi adapter and mouse work great.

Cons: Keyboard seems new but doesn't work at all. I tried plugging it in to multiple USB ports and tried plugging it into a different computer but doesn't register any key presses.

Overall Review: Solid refurbished PC. I bought this set for my grandma to have a computer to use but now I have to order a new keyboard separately and find a way to get rid of the one that doesn't work.

Solid piece of hardware

Nippon Labs Cat 8 Ethernet Cable 3 ft. Blue - 2GHz, 40G, 24AWG, S/FTP - Shielded Latest 40Gbps 2000Mhz SFTP Patch Cord, Heavy Duty High Speed Cat8 LAN Network RJ45 Cable - in Wall, Outdoor for Router, Modem, Gaming etc.
Nippon Labs Cat 8 Ethernet Cable 3 ft. Blue - 2GHz, 40G, 24AWG, S/FTP - Shielded Latest 40Gbps 2000Mhz SFTP Patch Cord, Heavy Duty High Speed Cat8 LAN Network RJ45 Cable - in Wall, Outdoor for Router, Modem, Gaming etc.

Pros: -Feels very sturdy. I have no practical way of measuring the thickness of the cord but it does seem a lot thicker than any of the other old Ethernet cords lying around the house -I got the 3 ft cord, perfect length since my router and modem are right next to each other -BIGGEST PRO: When doing research on Ethernet cords, I found out that the cord that came with my modem was only CAT 5e. I was only getting 100 mb/s down even though my internet plan is for 150 mb. After connecting my router and modem together with this cord I get consistent 200 mb/s. This is the first time I've gotten more than what I paid for with comcast. Seems like high quality hardware makes a difference. -Rated as CAT 8 so hopefully future proofed for Gigabit internet (I only have 150 mb right now)

Cons: -Solid construction seems to make the cord very stiff. Might require stretching it straight for a bit if you want to run it a distance. -Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Overall Review: Definitely recommend this company. I was looking all over am*z*n for a good Ethernet cord but all the reviews for cords on there seemed to say the same thing mostly: -Advertised as Cat 7 or 8 but was actually 5 or 6 -Flimsy, made in china garbage -stopped working after a while for no apparent reason However, these cords seem to be exactly what they were advertised as. Hopefully they hold up over time. I will update if anything goes wrong.
