Most Favorable Review

Good Scale

Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale
Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale

Pros: Small handy scale, stores nicely and works well. I have used this for almost a year and it is holding up well.

Cons: This is not very accurate when you are dealing with single grams, but I understood this when I purchased it (Precision is +/- half a gram). I use this in the kitchen and the screen is not flush with the weighing surface so I have a lot of crumbs getting stuck there.

Most Critical Review

Shouldn't have

PNY Polaroid 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU32G10-EFPOL
PNY Polaroid 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model P-SDU32G10-EFPOL

Pros: Large amount of space for a great price.

Cons: I read a lot of the reviews for this memory card, and thought I shouldn't get this one, but the price was great and I have never had any problems with a SD card before so I took the risk. It started corrupting my files after two months of using it, then finally died after three. The RMA was quick and easy, but I did lose time and $$ sending it back.

Overall Review: Get what you pay for? In hindsight, I really don't need +32 GB of phone storage with everything being backed up to the web, so I should have bought a smaller size with better user feedback.

Convenient

StarTech HSB2535SATBK Dual Bay 5.25" Trayless Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane
StarTech HSB2535SATBK Dual Bay 5.25" Trayless Hot Swap Mobile Rack Backplane

Pros: Easy to install and putting the drives in works easily

Cons: Noisy Fan

Overall Review: This was easy to install and came with all the parts I needed. Unfortunately, the fan on the back is very loud and I had to disconnect it. The reason I bought this model was for the added fan on the HD and disconnecting it meant I am not getting my money's worth. The ejection is very easy to use for my HD, have not tried an SSD yet (and due to the lack of fan, I might not have both inserted at the same time).

Easy to Use

Total Defense Premium Internet Security - 5 User
Total Defense Premium Internet Security - 5 User

Pros: This Security suite is comprehensive with parent controls, backup utility, and internet security. It has the ability to White list items once they have been detected by a scan. I do not see a large drain on resources and I do not see a lag when the scan is running. Rebate process is done well, with a website to track progress.

Cons: I had to completely remove Comodo Firewall to install this (I was able to reinstall after). -1 star

Overall Review: Windows 7 (64 bit), Intel i7 CPU 920, 12 GB RAM

Handy

MEElectronics EP-AF9-BK-MEE Black Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headset
MEElectronics EP-AF9-BK-MEE Black Stereo Bluetooth Wireless Headset

Pros: This is small and convenient. I bought this to allow me to stream to my stereo, but I have recently been using it with headphones and they work well. I am using the Xperia, and like not having to uncover the headphone jack to listen to music. I have not had any problems connecting and the range is surprisingly good, at least getting more than 33 feet from the phone with good connection. The sound quality is very good for the price.

Cons: I do not like the need to use a specialized plugin and I too wish that it used micro/mini USB. Also it is snap together build and it is easy to take apart. There is interference if I have this unit plugged in to charge while I am using if for playback, so I cannot set it up with my stereo permanently; I need to remember to charge it every so often.

Overall Review: The device uses a built-in mic when making calls, and not the mic on the headset. It works fine, but it is not as convenient as the headset mic.

quick and easy

Pros: Nice replacement for a laptop wireless card that failed for my wife. She expects technology to work as if by magic, and this does. I plugged it in, ran the installer and she has not noticed it since.

Cons: None
