PNY tops SDHC card reliability
Pros: Believe me , when it comes to a satisfying experience ,capturing that great shot of your grandchild is worth a lot , but the reliability of the flash card that it was written to is more important. I have had several brands of flash cards and I have never been robbed of that precious moment by a faulty PNY card. Sorry to say, but stay away from Transcend cards, and I say this from experience. Be careful buying a memory card only choosing a card because of price, cheap is not always cheap, if you catch my drift.
Cons: I cannot think of any real cons, only the fact that the prices keep getting lower, so when making a purchase you must come to dread seeing the card you paid $75 for last week is now $62 .so you buy another card only to see it go down even more a week later, ha , not really a con as I stated.
Overall Review: The only other thing , is ,you might find this a little cheaper somewhere else, but Newegg's Customer support is by far the best I have found on the internet, so if you happen to get that one in ten thousand DOA item or you simply ordered the wrong part, Newegg with gladly help you with your dilemma .
not quite as good as hoped
Pros: Relatively inexpensive, easy to set up. Daylight picture is acceptable.
Cons: Not made for exterior uses, and both the focus and motion monitoring lack acceptable performance. Night view is bright, yet unless you knew the person being monitored, you could not tell who it was (a very blurry photo). The on light (connection etc.) is very bright and cannot be turned off. To conceal the unit one must place tape over the led (I guess).
Overall Review: I am very disappointed with these units, I bought 3 to focus on various approaches to the house, but had to settle for monitoring the doors from inside. At approx, 10 ft. , the motion sensors fail 80% of the time. I guess I have to make the intruder walk right up to the device to activate it.
T-Fal nearly at its best
Pros: they (the complete set) are useful for cooking food. Non stick is a real plus. You can use them to melt aluminum cans for casting, but you have to make a furnace out of a garbage can , propane and a Bunsen burner, an air supply to increase temperature, and your a smelter. Nothing will hurt these pots. period.
Seagate at their best drive
Pros: Hi performance 7200 rpm with satisfactory buffer. I find no faults , and I have used Seagate drives for over 30 years...One of my first was a 200 MB IDE for aprox. $1100.00. Of course as a govt. worker in the science and health care experimentation sector , we needed the best.
Unfortunately , mine came defective
Pros: The box came undamaged , shrink wrapped, with all accessories included.
Cons: Firstly, I thought I was ordering the H80i unit, so when I received the Refurbished h80, I was initially disappointed. It would have cost me $16+ to return it for exchange of the same item (which I didn't want in the first place), so I installed it. Upon first boot, the led lit up, but the fans on the radiator did not work. After rebooting, the led lights no longer worked and the fans continue to be without power.I was able to confirm that the fans worked if connected to the motherboard directly, so the heatsink main block is defective i.e. the brains of the unit.
Overall Review: I called Newegg customer support, and spoke with Elizabeth. She was fantastic at handling my problem. I was able to return the defective unit , and pay for a NEW Cosair H80i cooler I had wanted in the first place. Eggcelent sic Support from NewEgg as always.
