Great Scale!7/13/2016 3:40:24 PM

Pros: - I like the 1g accuracy. My last scale only measured to even numbers of grams. Not a huge deal, but it's nice to have

Cons: - The text on the "Tare On/Off" button literally wore off in less than 1 week*. That's the reason I deducted 1 star. - This is a minor quibble, but it takes a few seconds to settle on the final weight. You can add a little food and the weight will gradually climb.

Overall Review: -I've been using the scale daily for a couple of weeks now and have overall been happy with it - My last scale had a pressure plate elevated above the area with buttons/readout, so you could use larger plates/bowls and still be confident that you were getting an accurate reading. With this scale I'm concerned that if the base of the vessel I'm using extends beyond the hole at the top or the readout at the bottom it won't work properly. - All in all, I'm still happy with the scale for the price I paid (under $15) *Regarding the text that wore off: I use the scale 1-3 times a day, but it's never gotten wet; I've never used wet fingers to push the button; and I've never wiped or cleaned the surface of the scale. I was really surprised by how cheaply that part was manufactured, and that worried me at first. But it seems to work just fine other that that.

Great Keyboard10/19/2009 7:19:40 AM

Pros: This keyboard is very comfortable to use all day at work. I really like the reverse slope, which puts my hands in a more natural position. It takes a little getting used to, but it's well worth it.

Cons: -> The space bar starts off a little stiff You can find videos showing how to fix this, but I haven't changed mine (it broke-in and/or I got used to it) -> The zoom slider in the middle Intuitively this should be a scroll instead. Google "microsoft 4000 scroll" (without quotes) to find a simple fix to change it to a scroll. Still, it's crazy to me that the zoom/scroll thing isn't an option in the software. So -1 egg for that. ->It's a tall keyboard This isn't a big deal for me, but others might need to consider this.... After I had this for a few months I got a second one for home, where my desk is a little higher than at work (or maybe my chair is just shorter?). Using the riser for the reverse slope puts the front of the keyboard too high for my wife to use. And it's too tall to fit on a slide-out keyboard tray under the desk (with the riser in place, it's about 3.5" tall). I keep a second, wireless keyboard on the keyboard tray for my wife to use.

Overall Review: I bought this for work about 7 months ago. I liked it so much that I bought a second one for home a few months later.

OEM Worked Fine For Me10/15/2009 9:21:43 AM

Pros: This is a great keyboard. It's very comfortable to use all day at work. I really like the reverse slope, which puts my hands in a more natural position. It takes a little getting used to, but it's well worth it. Also, this OEM keyboard is indistinguishable from my non-OEM (retail) version.

Cons: The only cons are shared by the retail-version of this keyboard: -> The space bar starts off a little stiff There's a fix for this, but I haven't changed mine (it broke-in and/or I got used to it) -> The zoom slider in the middle Intuitively this should be a scroll instead. Google "microsoft 4000 scroll" (without quotes) to find a simple fix to change it to a scroll. Still, it's crazy to me that the zoom/scroll thing isn't an option in the software.

Overall Review: I bought the retail version of this keyboard for work about 7 months ago. I liked it so much that I waited for it to go back on sale to get another one for home. Since the retail version doesn't go on sale often I wound up getting this OEM version 2.5 months ago. I can only speak for myself, but this keyboard looks and performs just like the retail version I got 4 months prior. (Other than the lack of retail box and driver disk, of course.) I've been reading a lot of reviews saying people think they got a used keyboard. I detect nothing to suggest that my keyboard is anything but new. I'd rate this keyboard exactly as I would the retail version.

Pros: Lots of power; Lots of connections

Cons: Couldn't find any info _anywhwere_ about the 8-pin power plug. All documentation online and in the manual says it has a 4-pin - which it does.... But it also has an 8-pin, which my motherboard had a hookup for. I finally crossed my fingers and plugged in the 8-pin to my mobo and it works fine. Whew.

Overall Review: Apart from the really poor documentation, I'm very happy.

It Works1/5/2007 12:23:12 PM

Pros: It works. What else can I say?

Cons: Not crazy about the SD card sticking out of the side of it. You couldn't just carry this around like a thumb drive as you can with some other models - but I know this going in, so not much of a complaint.

Overall Review: This is much slimmer than some other stick-style readers because it isn't wide enough to completely enclose the SD card. The down side is that the card sticks out of the side while in use. But it doesn't get in the way of anything and works just fine with my Patriot Extreme Performance 2GB card.

Good Enough That I Just Bought A Second One1/5/2007 12:17:22 PM

Pros: Very fast read and write times; High capacity; Cheap

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I bought one of these several months ago (see my previous review below) for a Kodak P850. My camera was stolen along with its case and my memory cards. :( I just replaced the camera with a Kodak V610. I was happy enough with this card that I just bought another one to replace the first. I'd highly recommend it.

Great Product1/4/2007 10:41:54 AM

Pros: HUGE screen; Terrific picture; Very bright image with deep blacks and overall great contrast; No burn-in worries, so I can game away worry-free

Cons: Only 720p (but there is almost no 1080p content yet - except for BlueRay and HD DVD); Lacks some of the "wow factor" a plasma has (but a plasma will cost at least 3X more for a screen this size)

Overall Review: I got one of these just after Thanksgiving (_incredible_ sale at a different store), so I've had it for over a month now. This isn't too much more than I paid, and (dare I say) is the lowest price you'll currently find. The screen is actually so bright that I almost always keep the lamp in low-power mode (which should also help the lamp last longer). I was concerned about the horizontal viewing angle, but it is actually very good on this model. The vertical viewing angle is not so as good, so you will definitely need a stand to raise it up to eye-level. I have TimeWarner cable with an HD 1080i converter box. HD programming is breathtaking. DiscoverHD is one of the most impressive channels to watch, along with just about any HD sports content. The cabinet is only about 18" deep. I also got the stand made for this model by Toshiba. The silver front bezel isn't quite the right size which is annoying, but probably not noticeable to anyone but the owner.
