Pros: - Small
- Appears to be well built
- Relatively cool when plugged in
Cons: - Slow. 6MBs Write, 16MBs read
Overall Review: Hey, for $15 what do you expect? Good value. Great value if it lasts.
Pros: Good color rendition, sharp images, easy setup, easily mounts on monitor
Cons: A bit of barrel distortion and some minor jaggies
Overall Review: Hey, for the money, you aren't going to get a Red camera. Excellent web cam, especially for the price.
Pros: The performance per h2testw:
13 MB/s Write
20 MB/s Read
Well within class 10 rating. That's all you can ask for.
Cons: None, other than an ugly label :-)
Overall Review: Since I've only had this for a few months, so I can't say anything about long term reliability.
-Should last longer than the stock Tivo fan since it's uses ball bearings
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Standard replacement for the stock Tivo Series 3 fan
Pros: 18MB/s read, 13MB/s write, so it easily meets Class 10.
Cons: Unknown pedigree and reliability.
Overall Review: This is a very good flash card that performs well. I ran a 2 hour performance test is there were no problems. The only real issues might be how long it lasts and how well the warranty would be fulfilled. This is the only reason for 4 eggs.
As of now, highly recommended.
Pros: Once you get it working, it's pretty good. Reasonably fast. 2 USB ports are convenient. Printer and USB hard drive were easy to setup.
Cons: Setup can be problematic depending on your modem. Poor initial quality control. Firmware upgrades are hit or miss. USB hard drive connection is slower that a straight USB port.
Overall Review: My first 2 units were DOA, the third worked. Had problems with a new DSL modems that my ISP required me to upgrade. The latest firmware, 184.108.40.206, didn't talk to the modem and I had to back off to 220.127.116.11 before it worked. Will occasionally drop connection requiring a restart, but generally reliable. Would give it 4 eggs if setup weren't so problematic.
Pros: Solid constriction, no video problems
Overall Review: This cable is a good example of modest cost and 1st rate performance. Spending any more would be a waste of money. Highly recommended.
Pros: Works and is reasonably fast
Cons: Exposed connector could be subject to wear on a key chain.
Overall Review: Since the connector is exposed, I keep it between plastic tags on my keychain, but other objects could scrape the connector. I still give in 5 stars because it's so unobtrusive and works well.
Pros: -FLAC decoding
-Versatile file management
-Good battery life
Cons: -Screen is hard to see in bright light
-User interface takes time to get used to and is somewhat clumsy
-Can't easily replay (reverse) current track
-Should be used with high efficiency headphones
Overall Review: I would only consider using a lossless decoding player and Meizu seems to be the best of the portables as it supports FLAC anc Ogg (I use FLAC and there are lots of freeware encoders available like EAC). The sound is excellent but I had to get higher efficiency headphones than my Shure E2C's. This is very high quality and not your typical Chinese schlock electronics. A bargain compared to iPods, Zens, etc., if you can live with the somewhat inferior screen and unusual controls.
