Pros: Bought this for a client for a older Toshiba laptop and it still is kickin.
Cons: There is no way to securely lock the tips but just have to be-careful that tip is all the way in.
Pros: Use to extend my cellphone charger cable. No need to hover over power outlet because of the sort cable that came with the phone.
Pros: Use this to recovery documents and files for customers for computer that we reformat. The man key to recover data don't use windows to back up from windows. We use linux and just plug in, copy and past home folder and done.
Cons: The IDE connectors are slim line, meaning that the edges of the connector are not thick enough to line up with pins. So if you use IDE drives you need to line up pins, don't just plug it in. I took this for granted the first time and bent some pins. The good part I have the tools to fix the pins.
Pros: Use these to replace the power supplies from customers that only have 350 watts and below. Some of the cheaper computers have very low watts and will die. I buy these from different suppliers and from all that i have installed, non have failed me as log as you mach the power supply to hardware.
Overall Review: Just make sure you mach the watts to your hardware.
Pros: Use these to power up sata drives, for data recovery. Along with a external adapter for recovering data for clients. Does what is suppose to do.
Cons: none really just make sure both sides are connected well and tight and your good.
Pros: Good laptop replacement HDD, for the price.
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: OEM packaging love it no extra trash to throw out.
Just a ESD safe pouch and that's it.
Pros: Cheap, powerful enough to run android, well more like over kill.
With a SSD and android the battery life not that good but its power full.
Might also be the oem battery, it says IBM on the battery so may by OEM battery.
If it is wow.
Cons: not touch screen, but i grew up with a stylist in my hands so not much of a big deal.
Overall Review: There is a problem with the fan, but i don't know if i will RMA it. Since I already have this unit in business production and I'm sure they wont do a advance replacement.
Pros: Put this SSD on my X61 and I am running android. Is awesome, fast and I don't have to worry about bumping it and destroying a traditional HDD. Only moving part is the fan, now to do something about that.
Cons: A traditional HDD uses less than 1 amp to work.
On the SSD it says 1.6 amps, so your battery life might not be that good if you use this in a laptop. but for the price still good product.
Overall Review: Its like a use drive but better.
Pros: I always recommend Brother to all my customers, they are rock solid for the price.
They always, for the most part that i have seen, will take generic toner and drums very well. I finally replaced a 15 year old Brother laser printer/fax after close to a half million pages. Linux user there is a driver package for this printer and is awesome. And you can print straight from you phone or tablet, new idea no, but this prints straight to printer, not some on line service then you printer.
Cons: No duplex scanning but i can live with that for the price.
Overall Review: Great buy.
Pros: Have bought close to 20 of these, and in all one had a HDD fail after a few days. (This happens with all refurbished cpus at some point.)
I called them they emailed me a prepaid shipping label. Shipped it back, then revived a new one. I wish more companies were these efficient in their RMAs.
If the part about the HDD failure puts you down then the one year warranty will up your spirits of buying this CPU. Awesome customer service.
Overall Review: The packaging they use is incredible well thought out.
Pros: Cheap and effective, and it works.
Pros: Great product charges my IBM Lenovo X61 Laptop/Tablet.
There is a light on the transformer and the lighter socket plug. That will com in handy to find out if later on (hopefully years) it ever fails.
Overall Review: Wish the cord was a bit longer, I drive a commercial van for my computer business so i have a lot of room. But for most people with standard size cars its perfect.
