Most Favorable Review

Wow! Amazing Bang for the Buck

Brother MFC Series MFC-8860DN MFC / All-In-One Up to 30 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer
Brother MFC Series MFC-8860DN MFC / All-In-One Up to 30 ppm Monochrome Laser Printer

Pros: Lots of features, Network support, can scan into FTP server. Reasonably reliable ADF.

Cons: Does not support HTTP printing. Requires installing a cumbersome ENTIRE suite of drivers and utilities, even if on a specific PC you only want printing capability (i.e. without faxing, scanning, etc.)

Overall Review: Excellent value.

Most Critical Review

A Classic Example of Poor Enigneering

Sabrent USB 2.0 to Printer Converter Cable Printer Cable [CN36M] (SBT-UPPC)
Sabrent USB 2.0 to Printer Converter Cable Printer Cable [CN36M] (SBT-UPPC)

Pros: Doesn't need drivers for XP/Vista.

Cons: Worked (more or less) for 2 months - then died. Also, in order for the printer to be recognized by Windows, you need to make sure that you plug the **USB first** into PC, only then you plug the LPT connector to the printer. If you do it the opposite way (which makes sense because it is more convenient), your printer will never be discovered by Windows.

Overall Review: 5' is a little too short. I think that this device has a thermal DESIGN FLAW.

Died after 8 months

Pros: Worked fine during the first 8 months.

Cons: Died after 8 months.

Almost Perfect

ThinkPad T Series T60 Notebook Intel Core Duo T2400(1.83GHz) 15" 1GB Memory DDR2 60GB HDD 5400rpm DVD/CD-RW Combo W/Docking Station
ThinkPad T Series T60 Notebook Intel Core Duo T2400(1.83GHz) 15" 1GB Memory DDR2 60GB HDD 5400rpm DVD/CD-RW Combo W/Docking Station

Pros: Comes with Windows XP, instead of the bloated and irritating Windows 7.

Cons: Screen's aspect ratio outdated. Small HDD (but more than enough for Windows XP) No longer in stock.

Mediocre

Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Cyan) Model DT101G2/4GBZ
Kingston DataTraveler 101 Gen 2 4GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Cyan) Model DT101G2/4GBZ

Pros: Test finished without errors (tested using H2testw v1.4). Metal swivel better than a cap.

Cons: Very SLOW writing speed: Writing speed: 5.30 MByte/s Reading speed: 20.4 MByte/s

Overall Review: Bought 4 of these with the incentive of a 10% discount. Even with the free shipping, this is too expensive for a mediocre flash drive like this. Should be under $1/GB.

1.5 Months later... Unreliable

Transcend 4GB microSDHC Flash Card with SD Adapter Model TS4GUSDHC2
Transcend 4GB microSDHC Flash Card with SD Adapter Model TS4GUSDHC2

Pros: Worked OK for about one month and a half.

Cons: Failed when I most needed it, at the least convenient moment (1 day before a critical demo).

Overall Review: Not worth returning. I replaced it with a 4GB Sandisk model SDSDQ-004G-A11M at the local SEARS.
