This review is from: PLEXTOR USB 2.0 External 6X BD Combo Super Multi Drive Model PX-B310U
Pros: It can read files?
Cons: Well, I bought this to let the kids watch movies on a laptop while we were traveling without wifi. I know bluray is a dead technology, but we have a box set of Harry Potter and well I need to keep the kids quiet on an 11 hour trip. What you aren't told about this player is that the included software is like 5 years old and doesn't work to show movies. Literally spent an hour trying to get it to work, but just found many other frustrated users that Plextor would bundle non-working software. So I went to plan B and downloaded a trial of one of the newer software packages that normally costs $50, the price of this stupid drive, but luckily I would get 30 days free and that would get me through my trip! It worked, hooray! I packed it up, set off for our 11 hour train ride and wouldn't you know, on the train, set up the player and laptop and the player works for about 3-4 minutes before registering an error and shutting down. You see, when I tested I only watched for 1-2 minutes before I assumed it worked. The whole purpose for this was shot and I felt like I was using windows 95 when using this player. Oh, and it is huge - I would have done better to bring an xbox with us. What a hunk of junk - I have been happy with Plextor in the past, but clearly they are falling behind.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: I've always loved Rosewill products - I've found them to be high quality. I bought this for my printer that was only 6 months old. The print actually would rub off of the paper. I thought there was something wrong with the printer. Took it in for service and they told me that the generic toner was the problem. Bought a real TN750 from Brother and works fine. Literally, with this toner cartridge, my printer was unusable and embarrassing.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RHSD-11001SS Automated Soap Dispenser
Pros: Easy and reliable. Great for the kids bathroom. Got this for free when I ordered a printer cartridge. Ordering another one.
Cons: None so far. Learned quickly to keep it away from the kids water glasss in the bathroom to avoid inadvertent dispensing.READ FULL REVIEW
