2 out of 5 eggs Not Compatible with HP Touchpad!! 07/25/2013

This review is from: eForCity Screen Protector+AC+Wall Charger+USB+HS+Stylus compatible with HP Touchpad

Pros: The stylus is good, and works on my tablet and phone.

Cons: The wall charger IS NOT compatible with the HP TouchPad as advertised. Upon plugging it into the TouchPad, I am greeted with this message:
"To reliably charge, please use the charger and cable that came with this device."
If my TouchPad is dead, it will not charge at all, displaying the above message instead. If I'm booted into Android, it will charge, but only at the extremely slow pace of 500 milliamps, the same as using a USB port on a computer. I have not tested it with WebOS. I bought this product specifically because it was supposed to be compatible with the TouchPad, and all my other chargers in the house also display this message. About 5 weeks after purchasing this, I found my original charger and it works perfectly, so its not a problem with my TouchPad.

Other Thoughts: I haven't used the screen protector yet, but it looks good!

G.SKILL Phoenix Pro Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Was one of the fastest drives available when I bought it
Lasted 2+ years so far with no issues or bad cells (sectors)
No noticeable speed decrease over time

Cons: Runs a little hot
A little small (80GB)

Other Thoughts: When I bought this drive 2 years ago, the $2.25/GB price was the best you could find. At the time, SSDs were pretty rare and 250MB/s was one of the faster drives available. 80GB got a little cramped, so I upgraded to the 256GB Samsung 830 series with the sale this week ($0.62/GB lol). That will become my main drive and this OCZ drive will go into my Pentium 4 to breathe some life into it.

PRO TIP for those using an SSD. I use mine for Windows 7, programs, and games. To organize my files I have a HDD RAID array. I went into my user folder and deleted the following subfolders: Documents, Music, Videos, Pictures, and Downloads. Then I created junction points pointing to folders with the corresponding names on my disk drive. With this setup, putting a file in C:\Program Files\ or C:\Users\KJ4EZJ\ or C:\Users\KJ4EZJ\Appdata puts the file on my SSD. Putting a file in C:\Users\KJ4EZJ\Documents or Music, Videos, or Downloads appears like it's on the SSD but is actually on the HDD.

BTW my Windows 7 boot time with startup items on this drive was 32 seconds

SuperSonic SC-602 HDTV and Digital TV Indoor Antenna

5 out of 5 eggs Receives DTV signals during bad storms 06/21/2012

This review is from: SuperSonic SC-602 HDTV and Digital TV Indoor Antenna

Pros: Very sensitive antenna
Long range
High quality
Easily adjustable

Cons: The coax cable could be longer

Other Thoughts: Note: Most TV stations transmit with vertical polarization, meaning for best reception, you should set it up so it's elements are vertical.

Spring 2011, I was stuck at home during a really bad storm. The storm came out of nowhere, going from a mostly cloudy and eerily calm day, to torrential downpour with 90MPH winds in 5 minutes. We cut cable in favor of internet streaming, so I turned on the local news to see what was going on. The storm completely blocked the signal from my old rabbit ear antennas. A tornado ended up jumping over my house. We suffered little damage, but it could've been much worse. I bought this antenna because I needed something that could get a signal when I need it most. This antenna does.
