Works great but a rebate debit card?
Pros: Never fails or lags even when doing video editing apps. Looks cool.
Cons: none as far as the product goes. Rebate is different. See below.
Overall Review: I expected a rebate check like always but got a debit card for $22 bucks instead. To activate it you must go on line and enter and verify more info about yourself, probably so they can send you junk mail and phone calls at dinner time. Also the envelope the rebate came in looked very much like junk mail. The only reason I didn't toss it is because I knew it was coming.
31 days and the vertical lines appeared
Pros: Big, clear, bright and the price were all nice before the lines appeared.
Cons: But you get what you pay for. I had mine for 31 days, one day more than the warrantee covered when the floating horizontal lines appeared. The monitor still works but the lines are noticeable and annoying once you know they’re there. So now I am faced with the decision. Do I pay for the shipping and send it back to Hanns to be repaired or exchanged, or do I wait for it to die completely and then send it? Also this thing is big. Shipping is going to cost a lot.
Pros: It works fine but....
Cons: I understand the unit is refurbished, but I did not expect to receive a product with scratches, chips and a crack. Although the unit seems to work fine although I have only used it for about 30 minutes, it came in "poor" used condition. Prior, when I have bought a product that was "refurbished," it came reset to factory defaults, but not this one. This product came with baby photos and videos, a facebook account, and an email address account of the previous owner. Luckily the item is covered by Throwback Deals Return Policy so I will be exchanging it after the holidays. I am giving it 3 stars because it does work.
Stopped reading DVD's
Cons: Stopped reading DVD's after it's second burn.
Overall Review: When I put in a DVD of any format, it starts up momentarily but does not read the DVD. CD's of any format work fine. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it through the device manager and had the same issue. Then I put it in another computer and experienced the same problem. I saw all the positive reviews so I figured it would last more than a couple of weeks. Haven't had anything fail in a while so it was probably just luck of the draw.
Looks good but....
Pros: Looks good Comes with power supply Cheap Long wires
Cons: Really cheap and flimsy. Power supply only comes with one SATA power connector. Clear panel window came with every single screw loose and two screws were in the case and had to be fished out.
Overall Review: You get what you pay for, but I have paid the same for better cases. The case does look great, and after it all came together the cases downfalls seemed less significant.
WARNING WARNING WARNING!!!
GALAXY TAB 2: I received an item that was called refurbished but was in very poor used condition. The back was cracked, the screen scratched and the edges were chipped. It even had the previous owners email and facebook account accessible, as well as baby photos and videos. They agreed to refund my money. That's when it turned all bad. After they received the item they had all sorts of excuses why they had not given me the refund. Seriously, it was amusing. First they told me I'd receive the refund later that week, then they were busy do to the holiday, and then they told me they had a fire. They also used that excuse with someone else in the reviews over a month ago. I opened a case with PAYPAL and Newegg and it appears I will eventually get my money back. DONT USE THIS COMPANY!!!
