Pros: Every 5 years or so I buy a refurbed PC with NewEgg just to do browsing and some light gaming. This particular model is the best refurbished PC I have bought. Super fast and has just the right specs for my needs. Yehaw!
Cons: - I didn't need the free keyboard
Overall Review: A 10/10 for my needs.
Not so good for HD use
Pros: Great for use with DVD/CD drives
Cons: I bought this to be a jack of all trades external drive. It has the capabilities to serve as both an external DVD enclosure and an external HD enclosure. It sucks as a HD enclosure because the HD doesnt line up to be mounted correctly. So you can connect the HD but it has to just rest in the enclosure.
Overall Review: By cheaper a separate DVD enclosure.
Excellent basic phone
Pros: I bought this to use overseas. I wanted a phone that could take pics/video but that looks unassuming. I arrived at my destination county (Argentina), pulled the SIM card out of my old phone and put it it this baby and was up and running. No complaints. It worked instantly with my service provider.
Cons: Keys are slightly small and make a kind of noise when pressed - like fingers pushing plastic bubbles.
Overall Review: This phone has every basic feature you could want in a non touch phone. Has non-techno ringtones (contrary to what other reviewer writes). I give it 4 out of 5 stars because it doesnt do my laundry.
Pros: I travel alot outside of the US and this mp3 player does just about everything I need. Long battery life and easy to use interface are great. And I really like the ability to record voice and noises in other countries. Its kind of fun
Cons: Iriver has a couple of different firmware options available - one of which allows this player to function as a plug n play flash drive (no need for software) so you can transfer files from different computers. To me this is the most useful mode, but when I use this mode, I cant dont know how to make playlists, which sucks.
Overall Review: Practical, functional and durable.
