Pros: OEM Rapid Charger for specific model phone.
Cons: The shelf/ledge the One+ charger has is narrow if the phone has any protective skin on it.
Overall Review: Recommended, both device and seller. Per my title, never trust the delivery service if not SOLD AND SHIPPED by NEWEGG. Seems items to be delivered are currently optimistically projected for delivery date. I allowed just over 24 hours for the device to actually arrive AFTER I was notified of delivery. AND IT STILL TOOK YET ANOTHER FULL DAY for it to arrive. NOT the sellers fault.
Pros: USB and USB-C for PC-Android connectivity
Easy to use.
Cons: At ¼TB, and trying to migrate from a 128gb Micro-SD in USB adapter for nearly half capacity usage from the get go, it was not fast. Bottle necks, and total file count resulted in nearly 6 hours for a usb-to-usbC copy. It may have been faster to actually move to the local HD first and use the usb-c.
I've never been comfortable with "key fob" drives that are capless.
Overall Review: Perfect for my wifes' needs. Have a small neoprene pouch to keep it in so I don't have to worry about a "capless" design. In this case, total portability and storage capacity eclipses initial write speed irregular speed from usb-to-usb copy that wildly swung from fastest to 10%, at sometimes almost seemed to stop.
Need a HUGE storage that works on PC *and* USB-C phone: This is the monster.
Pros: storage Storage STORAGE. I was looking for a volume large enough to copy my entire USERS folder. Found this beauty that jumps between laptop and phone! And it's small enough to fit my keychain!
Cons: I did not see by any pictures supplied that revealed that the "capless" design leaves the USB-C end uncovered, I want to find a unit that has a positive dust cover that plugs the USB-C end much like the ones used to plug phone ports when not in use. This sliding "cover" doesn't.
Overall Review: Get it, great storage. Just no dustless cap feature means this isn't a keychain item.
Pros: Comfortable angle to hold. FWD/BACK buttons handy. BT connection is easy.
Cons: Satin like finish is not grippy enough. I tried it in a MMO and the right-click quickly produced cramps. So, good for desktop use, but not games. Would like it better if the FWD/BACK buttons could be remapped, to perhaps Cut/Paste.
Overall Review: Good mouse for holding angle in less intense usage profiles; but could use a feature such as a dimple and/or stronger textured surface to assist in holding, especially if in right-click intensive profiles (so it's not a even casual game use).
Pros: Small, bright, colorful.
Cons: Looked closely at all (then) current descriptions and bought it. Only to find it was Android/iOS only... you *must* not have a windows phone. You *must* link it with your phone to even set the time. You *must* have a Google Play account. So, I tried to get a Google Play account. Google Play has three attempts of mine to start an account, but all three times it said there was suspicious activity on the account that was seconds old! I had gone to some trouble to set up an existing backup e-mail account and when Google Play tried to verify me, it *never* offered to use the back-up contact I had just setup, but instead insisted on a phone contact. Again, Windows Phone, no iOS or Android phone. Left out in the cccccccold. Further, I made the mistake of trying to charge it for the first time in the middle of the day, it appears that if I had started charge it at MIDNIGHT it would at least be close to the correct time. NO amount of reset/restart (or letting it run out of power) on the device resets the time ... so now though the device seems to be working to count my steps, it resets to ZERO in the middle of the day.
My only device con is that it has become less sensitive to display, not one, or two or three.. sometimes 5 or 8 finger/palm swipes to get it to respond.
Overall Review: When I read the descriptions I could not find any prerequisite for a requires iOS or Android". Other models did, this one did not. Bluetooth link on my headset doesn't require my phone number. So, if you get one, DON'T PLUG IT IN FOR THE FIRST TIME UNTIL MIDNIGHT, or give up your phone number (personal ID, locations, travels etc..) with Google Play underhanded tactics, Where this may not be the intent of Amazfit.
Pros: Carrying case is very nice, swivel ear cuffs are good and soft. Nice bright indicator when noise cancellation.
EXTREME BONUS of removable patch cord so it is noise cancelling ONLY (mowing, airplane flights). My old Philips set had permanently attached cord to BOTH ear pieces, this single 1/8" cable can be easily replaced.
Cons: Slightly small on the ear donuts, slightly larger could be appreciated. Firm, but not tight head grip, so it's not a workout/running set (which would be too warm anyway).
Overall Review: Included 1/4->1/8" adapter, and dual mono to stereo adapter.
Pros: Bulb worked.
Cons: Screws were too far apart and too large to fit in DLP Television. MY error was not getting the RMA soon enough. I was left with spent money and resorted to Nitrile gloves and screwdrivers to move the bulb from the OEM housing, tossing it, then removing "guaranteed fit" bulb into OEM housing then tossing the new housing: new bulb in old housing worked.
Overall Review: No. This is supposed to be a simple two screw component swap out where guaranteed fit and exact part number match that prompted the order were both 100% failures.
Pros: Price Point crossed with WD reputation and previous user history with NE and WD. Exact match for capacity and performance of OEM drive in new laptop.
Cons: None, exactly as expected.
Overall Review: I purchased two of these as my Clone/Backup process for my new laptop. Using an Apricorn (also in NewEgg) USB drive adapter these two drives are in rotation as a clone of my computer. As long as those drives aren't spinning on my shelf, my ability to swap one in and recover even my OS and biometric password cache is a mere 5 minutes and #0 screwdriver away. On my rotation schedule, I boot to the Apricorn interface, and set it to clone my internal drive to the bare external drive during my downtime, next cycle, use the other drive This greatly reduces my recovery time should I have even catastrophic drive failure (unlikely as that is on these MTBF stats) as I am cloning even the updates and installed programs.
Pros: Relatively small, BRIGHT led flashlight option, nice finish, power charge indicator lights, dual function
Cons: Switch position, socket lacks protection.
Overall Review: Great product. I charged my Nokia 920 no problem. The Indicator in 4 stages shows charging status. The power switch for the flashlight feature is TINY. The USB power IN and power OUT sockets are fully exposed 100% of the time where a rubber cap that secures in those sockets could supply an easier flashlight button operation vector as well. Then again, that's 20/20 hindsight from a design viewpoint.
Pros: Capacity! MicroSDXC is the "bleeding edge" of flash capacity.
Overall Review: NewEgg timewarp shipping as usual! It seems you click SEND and the mail delivery person stops by a minute later.
Pros: Great way to use an older smaller HDD after an upgrade. Currently less expensive to convert a drive than to buy a 32gig Flash USB drive unless size diff between Flash and External HDD is your concern.
Cons: The screws are easily handled by any standard or philips screwdriver used by a jewler or eyeglass retailer/repair shop. So if you don't want to buy a small screwdriver ask them a favor.
Overall Review: Mind how many you plug into any single hub, using a single USB port can suck up power fast and cause a drive (toshiba and samsung I've confirmed) to tick-tick-tick and not register in "My Computer". Powered USB hubs reduce the stress.
Pros: 8gb, class 6
Overall Review: Excellent card. Rated Class 6 it stands up to my pocket digital camera for voice and motion, my SmarPhone and the like. Though the addressing system for flash memory is currenlty utilized around 64 gigs (depending on format) the theoritical limit is 2TB. If I was using this for a PDA or still camera class 4 or even 2 would work.
Pros: Metal construction, spring or location stop seems "positive" and not likely to wear out/break. 4 gigs means a significant storage for "on the fly" type data storage. Carbiner type attachment keeps it handy and secure. Capless.
Cons: Carbiner clip is a bit smaller than I envisioned, not really a "belt loop" size, but it works on my wifes purse ring fine or badge clip fine.
Overall Review: NewEgg, while carrying wonderful stuff, needs slightly better pictures. The smaller than envisioned clip would have not been a suprise if the picture included a refrence item, like a ruler, or a dime/quarter
Manufacturer could make this as a MicroSD adapter and it could grow with needs. Add a small clear cover on the 'back" and we could add an avitar or monogram to the cap. I also bought one for my daughter, distinctive for turning in USB homework in college.
Pros: Compact, firm and sturdy. AbFab on the screws included, 4 for the drive, and 2 for the cap. Real Bonus is the E-SATA port on it WITH the Cable AND the E-Sata Head it wold let you put in your desktop.
Cons: FINGERPRINTS the polished surface on it makes it ideal for showing the slightest smudge.
Also, the "Y" cable with the power tap and data, as others have said, you can just plug the one into the other (power tap is a pass through) and it works. This is a 3rd 2.5" enclosure for me and the first ones had a straight cord, no "Y", too bad NewEgg quit carrying those!
Overall Review: I tested it with a straight cord from one of the other drives, no issues, so I scratched my head and tested non-pass-through end of the 'Y' only, it worked. you may need to run the power tap on an OLD laptop, but even there a powered hub negates that. Good thing it's pass-through, wouldn't chew up a port this way.
Pros: Has worked on an old 30gig IDE and my original 160 gig in my laptop. I puchased a 320 gig SATA150 to repaldce my 160 with an external enclosure. From hooking up the bare 320 through the SW install in my OS (WinVistaUlt)and stopping to partition the drive, to the OS copy and HD swap I upgraded my Gateway laptop from 160gig (149 real) to 320gig (298 real) in <90 minutes from hook up to screwdriver down and boot! This puppy never complained. It copied my multiple users and domain logins and blinding (for usb2) speed; the boot up was spooky it was so smooth, to see all my stuff and not have to reload *everything* was just.. well.. spooky. This will make work so much smoother on checking bare drives in my lab; so much so the boss is asking what they need to do to get 10 more!
Cons: Oh man, this con is soooo minor, it won't report an uninitialized drive from the CD boot. It's why I booted to the OS and isntalled the SW from there, I could have easily initialized the drive on a different box. Might try that sometime.
Overall Review: LOVE the image feature to OR FROM the external drive. I'll need to confirm it works FROM an initialized drive (that contains a backup) to the internal on a laptop soon. If that is as easy as my upgrade was the boss will buy me lunch!
Pros: Easy to install. I researched NewEgg to make sure it would be compat with my new laptop, I was pleased to see my maker (Gateway) in the list and want to add my specific model: MX8734 and say it sailed right into port and booted w/o any issues.
Overall Review: NewEgg sometimes "drop-ships" from their warehouse or supplier. This particular order was supposed to come to me at my work site not home, and in this case the supplier omitted my work place and only kept the C/O <Morohval> Line so that the OOPS..er UPS guy kept it an extra day to clarify deliery point.
Pros: Nice small profile for the laptop case. Wroks well on Sony and Olympus digital camera's to off load pic's so I don't wear the mechanism for the card socket on them. That was the intended second use, and still an achieved goal.
Cons: Using this cable as a first goal was to power and use a drive/enclosure I got on this site months ago, and this cable will transfer data, but since it can't deliver the 5v needed to spin the drive I'm stuck using a wall-wart or second usb cable for power.
Overall Review: We have no designation as consumers if the cable *also* carry's the power needed to power a 2.5" laptop drive in an external enclosure or other devices that are "bus powered".
Comments: I *love* the peferated metal case! 8 tiny screws easily handled by my eye glass frame screwdriver (philips) since I work in optics. Cable(s) are handy length. Only one cable needed for most apps, but if your using it on an OLD laptop, the 2nd one is a power tap from the keyboard/mouse port. Not only a good price, a kewl look.
Comments: Ok, so one of my computers is OLD, and USB ports are limited, this extended one up and accepted all my "standard" usb items with one on the back and both top mounted ones still available, all in easy reach. Only down on this, it runs quite warm, so I just mounted it on the side of the PC so it has some heatsink cooling.
Comments: Pretty trick. Convert any one rear panel USB port to 2 ports on your desktop that move between PC's. Switch PC's, and your sound comes too. Only *slight* drawback is the design is so light that the stand (on edge) or set flat (as pictured) can make it hang funny with the sheer weight of the cords. I got a peel and stick anchor and some spiral wrap from HomeBase and now I have 2 pc's on one desk and LESS cord clutter!
Comments: Every one needs one, a way to carry those vacation pix, or hundereds of DOCments. Problem is finding the USB port to plug these puppies into. This one has the matching USB extender for EASY desktop access. Especially LOVE the strong metal hoop that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to loose the cap (guess what happend to the last one? yeah, right). The desktop socket is also handy for other standard USB devices, and makes a rear panel USP port more handy than a front panel.
Comments: Small! Compact! LIGHT! The cord is short, less to tangle up in your travel case and so this tadpole is perfect for your on-the-go laptop that's always short that one USB port for your MP3 device, memory stick, external drive or camera cable with ports that aren't buried too deep in the coputer case for some of these cables to plug in well. No power adapter means self/no-power demand items, but hey, this is for a moving and shaking "Mover and Shaker" so you aren't too worried about powered hubs.
