Pros: The opener performs great. Open 20 bottles so far and no sign of worn out battery. Easy to operate, just install batteries and go. Pay attention when closing the battery lid, sometime it does not making good contact but once the contact made, it remain in contact at all time. Slow motor speed with good torque helps to remove the cork even when it dry.
Pros: Good quality built, great sound and easy to use. Well design through out and good looking unit.
Cons: None that I can find
Overall Review: I'll be able to pull in channels that I could not tuned in with other radios. I live in deep South OC, CA so with this unit, I'll be able to get all channels broadcast from LA as well as SD metropolitan area which is great (more selections available for me)
2)Many Quick access keys
3)Nice key switch feels
Cons: 1) Media Quick keys only worked with Window Media player.
2) No LED indicator for Caps Lock or Num Lock.
3) The mouse is worthless.
Overall Review: I'm looking for the decent wireless kbd combo. The mouse is worthless but the kbd is fine for the $$ when I paired it up with the Logitech Cordless Optical Trackman. Pick this combo when you're ready to dump the mouse that comes with it.
Pros: Reliable, fast & quiet. This drive will be able to read minor scratches disk that other drive couldn’t. It works well with all the media such as Verbatim, TDK, Memorex, HP…
Cons: Nothing so far...
Overall Review: Pioneer did it again. I own the model DVR-105 for 4 yrs and this thing still work like a champ except that it’s too slow for today’s technology. I’m very happy with the model DVR-111D and would buy it again. This product is far superior comparing with NEC 3550 or LiteOn drive.
Pros: Easy to setup, good performance for budget price, 4 SATA & RAID.
Cons: Poor lay out:
1) It’s easier to remove the heat sink of the ATI Chipset in order to install the AMD CPU oem heat sink on.
2) The PCI express is so close to the RAM slot and not giving enough clearance for the RAM locking tab to be unlock (will hit my EVGA video card). You might have to remove your video card to replace the RAM when needed.
Overall Review: DIMM 1 slot has become intermittent after I’m using the board about a month. I suspected my Corsair RAM module at first but after I moved it to DIMM 3 slot, everything is fine but this might be an isolate incident. I would buy this board again in the future.
Pros: Good price, long output DC cables, harness is well organized and wrapped up in sleeve, quiet operation, good looking housing.
Cons: Unit died after 4 weeks in moderated usage.
Overall Review: I am using this PS in 3 different computers. Yesterday, 1 computer died. After T/S, it ends up the power supply went kaput. The other 2 are still running OK but I don’t know for how long.
Pros: Runs cool, option to use DDR or DDR2, integrated video allow you to have more time to select the better performance/price for the PCIE 16x video card.
Cons: Not true AGP 8x
Poor information on user's manual booklet
ECS Technical support is horrible. I submitted the TECH SUPPORT request form form the ECS web site and wait for 3 days, still no reply
Overall Review: Recently, I installed 2 Maxtor 300GB SATA and attempt to do the RAID0 but user's manual has no instruction on how to set this up. ECS Tech Support is worthless. If someone know how, please help by posting here the quick guide. Thanks
Pros: Sturdy, good looking, plenty of spaces for internal drives and others, good quality power switch,CPU runs cool, tooless design.
Cons: Plenty of dust collected on the front panel after a few months of running make it looks stand out and ugly among the dark panel background.
Overall Review: After having this case for 6 months , the fan is getting noisier and becoming annoying.
Pros: This RAM works well with my DELL D700. I went from 2 256MB modules to 1 OEM 256 & this Gigaram unit. The speed performance isn't much improve but Window Task Manager is showing the available memory value never sink below 150k even though I have multiple application at work (Note that the computer might crash if this value is less than 100)
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: I should get the 1GB module instead
Pros: Fast, Quiet...
Cons: Does not recognize Memorex DVD-R 16X which works fine with my old Pioneer DVR-105
Overall Review: This Burner does not recognize Memorex DVD-R 16X at all. It gave me Burn process error right at the beginning of Nero's "LEAD IN" phase. My other burners are 3520, 3540 and they gave the same symtom. Any suggestion...from anyone
Pros: Programmed “Quick Keys”, Illuminate keyboard, Scroll wheels...
Cons: “Toggle” & “Close” key are too close to “Arrow” keys causing end users may accidentally closing the application on screen. No docs or user’s manual guide.
Overall Review: The keyboard design and function is good. I like the key stroke travels and feels, especially the programmed “quick keys” and the illuminating part. Key cap’s materials are ABS/Clear but the finish is kind of cheesy. For xx$ and with all the features this keyboard has, I’d recommend to buy. I ordered on Sunday night and get it Tuesday afternoon which is alright but the S/H cost was x$ is a bit overcharge for this item’s size & weight.
