Cons: I cloned the drive from my laptop and it failed to boot. After trying 3 times including formatting and cloning again, still no boot so the drive was returned for a refund.
Overall Review: I would not buy again.
Pros: I bought this drive to use in my wife's old ASUS netbook. I installed Linux Mint and it works great. The netbook is too underpowered to gain a lot of speed from the upgrade, but it helped. Quick, easy install.
Cons: none so far.
Pros: I was shipped fairly quickly.
Cons: Trying to use this motherboard with the Ryzen R7-1700 processor. It was shipped with old BIOS version and had to be flashed before I could try anything. The USB ports on this board would not recognize my cameras when I connected them to the ports. They would recognize flash drives but not cameras. I tried all the ports, front (on the case) and rear. Flashed the BIOS to the latest version, reloaded the drivers three times. Once from the original disk that came with the motherboard, once with drivers from the Gigabyte site and once with drivers from the AMD site. Again slow response for the first couple of times from Gigabyte. Their site says 4 to 7 days for response. Finally got faster, but time was gone for a swap. I'm stuck with a bad motherboard. This was shipped as a replacement for the first bad motherboard. I don't know if I received a board returned by another buyer, but it was very frustrating. I bought another motherboard by ASRock.
Overall Review: I will not buy Gigabyte again.
Pros: Easy setup, works flawlessly every time, low price, long battery life. I have bought 2 of these.
Cons: None I can think of.
Pros: Good speed, great display, bought for my cousin to replace older laptop.
Cons: First unit received had defective charging circuit and would not charge the battery. Had to exchange.
Overall Review: Joy Systems was very easy to deal with and did a quick replacement with a T520. Windows loaded without a hitch.
Pros: Huge capacity and fast reading and writing. Sturdy metal case. LED indicator that is not too bright, just right, not obtrusive.
Cons: none so far
Pros: I bought this to replace an older Norelco Arcitec razor which needed new, very expensive heads. I wasn't sure what to expect because the price was a lot less, about what the head would cost for the older unit. WHAT A GREAT SURPRISE!! Fast, smooth shave with no irritation. The included shave cream and lotion added greatly to the comfort of the shave.
Cons: None so far.
Pros: Great price, fast, secure burns and low noise. This is the first one of these I have bought in SATA format. Previous was IDE and was a real workhorse. This one seems to be just as good.
Pros: Good price, camera does what it is supposed to do, good image for web and Skype. Easy setup in Win 7. Software downloaded and installed automatically.
Cons: Bad microphone. Sound was muffled, distorted and unintelligible. Would have been 5 stars if the mic was good.
Overall Review: I will try another brand.
Pros: Automatic string feed works great. Plenty of power for normal yard work. I've trimmed my yard 3 times on the first battery charge and it's still going. It came with 2 batteries and a charger and the 18V batteries also fit my B&D Firestorm drill. Well worth the price of the trimmer just for the batteries.
Cons: None so far
Pros: Inexpensive price on special makes it a good value.
Easy setup, except for the data entry. Excellent picture and sound quality. Nice assortment of applications. Movies look great and run without a hitch.
Cons: Data entry is really tedious. The center button on the controller is hard to use accurately. It either moves the cursor too slowly and doesn't respond consistently on all input screens. The data entry screens are not consistent and are different for different functions. For browsing the internet, it's a real pain. For Netflix, not so bad.
Overall Review: I would have given it a 5 star rating if the controller was better. At the special price ($54.94) I would say it's worth it. I couldn't recommend it at the full price.
Pros: I like everything about this laptop. It's a great size for relaxing on the patio or in the den so I can keep up with online interests. It had good speed and the graphics are great. The power monitor software is really convenient and I especially like the built-in 10 key number pad. Battery life is outstanding.
Overall Review: I'm not a big fan of the touch pads on laptops. This one has a lot of different swipes, taps & multi-finger strokes and it will take me a while to get used to it.
Pros: Long USB cable
Cons: It did not work well. Advertised range of 6000 feet, but failed to connect to router 200 feet away. Works only intermittently at best. The only broadband access in the area is via Dish service, we were trying to access my brother's router two houses away. I would not recommend this unit to anyone.
Overall Review: It does not work as well as the previous adapter I bought, ROSEWILL|RNX-N180UBE RTL.
Pros: Great modem/router. I replaced the old DSL modem furnished by my provider and the previous Netgear router which had stopped working. The new unit is half the size of the old router, so it frees up a lot of self space. Speed is increased by about 10-15% also. Easy setup, no problems!
Cons: It seemed to run a little hot when in horizontal position, so I stood it on end with the included feet. All is now well.
