Most Favorable Review

Tiny device, big storage

ADATA 16GB Class 6 Micro SDHC Flash Card with SD adaptor Model AUSDH16GCL6-RA1

Pros: At the time of my purchase, these were relatively inexpensive 16G microSD cards.

Cons: Read/write performance doesn't quite seem to live up to the advertising.

Overall Review: My main reason for purchasing these cards was for use in the PhotoFast CR-5400 microSD to MS Pro Duo converter. Two of these 16 GB microSD cards placed into the adapter can give a PSP 32GB of storage for media, making the PSP quite the little entertainment center. These A-Date cards work well in the CR-5400, and I'm quite happy so far with the massive storage I now have available for my PSP - at a price less than the cost of a 16GB MS Pro Duo! All in all, these A-Data cards do what they're supposed to. Their performance could have been a bit better, but I didn't really buy them for speed.

Cheap and quirky

Pros: It's small. it's cheap. it's fairly easy to set up, despite the web interface being a little clunky. Did I mention that it's cheap?

Cons: Wireless crashes - dropping all wireless connection - about half the time I use my PSP to connect. To get the wireless back, I have to unplug the router for a minute or so then plug it in again.

Overall Review: This router would be a great deal if it were more reliable. As it is, it's only a so-so deal.

Does what I bought it to do

Acer KN242HYL 23.8" Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz DVI HDMI VGA Built-in Speakers WideScreen Backlit LED IPS LCD Monitor
Acer KN242HYL 23.8" Full HD 1920 x 1080 60Hz DVI HDMI VGA Built-in Speakers WideScreen Backlit LED IPS LCD Monitor

Pros: Good deal from Newegg on Cyber Monday, Good viewing angles, built-in speaker

Cons: Built-in speaker's audio quality is not very good, Blacks are a bit washed out compared to higher-quality monitors

Overall Review: I bought this monitor because I was looking for something inexpensive with HDMI input and with built-in sound to play my Playstation TV (PSTV) on at the beach. The TVs I'd looked at which were comparable to Newegg's Cyber Monday deal were not too impressive, but this little IPS monitor does the trick. No noticeable lag on PSTV games, and the audio gets sent over HDMI so there's a simple one-cable connection. As other reviewers have stated, the audio quality of the speaker is not good, but I went into the purchase knowing that so I wasn't surprised.
