3 out of 5 eggs Know what you are purchasing 01/17/2017

This review is from: Intuit TurboTax Deluxe 2016 Fed + State + Efile Tax Software

Pros: See comments

Cons: See comments

Other Thoughts: For 2016 ALL versions of TurboTax support the same suite of forms including schedules B and D. More expensive versions offer additional interactive assistance for those who need it. Do your own research; lots of misinformation dating back to 2014 when some popular forms were not available in lower priced versions. I no longer use Intuit products but wanted to correct misinformation from another reviewer.

Rosewill Powerbank RCBR-13020-BK - Black, 11,200 mAh External Backup Battery Charger for Smartphone, iPhone, iPad, & iPod
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Nice finish, works as advertised

Cons: No included accessories

Other Thoughts: This power pack does what it states. It feels nice in the hand but is a bit large/heavy to slip into a pocket. Unfortunately, it does nothing to distinguish itself from the numerous competitors with similar specs that often toss in accessories and/or sell at lower price points. I look to Rosewill for high quality products offered at a reasonable cost. This product meets criteria #1 but otherwise is not a particularly good value.

01/16 Edit: Purchased another pack due to the ability to simultaneously take/deliver a charge which was a previously unrecognized benefit. Arrived fully discharged (unusual) and heavily scuffed suggesting prior ownership. Initially appeared to charge ok but bricked with one light illuminated after removing from charger. Nothing I tried revived the unit. Contacted Rosewill for exchange. Took several days for approval after refusing to return faulty unit at my expense. Used a Newegg gift card to purchase which could not be credited. Nor could a new card be issued (according to the rep). Waiting from a check from Newegg. Long time premiere subscriber with hundreds of purchases - initially got no preferential treatment as Rosewill is categorized a "Marketplace" seller. Entire RMA process was an unnecessary hassle. I get DOAs happen on occasion but the customer should not be burdened with finger pointing and return postage for a repackaged, defective product sold as new. That other big retailer that stars with 'A' sets the bar for handling returns; others have to step up or be forgotten. Buyer beware when dealing with Marketplace sellers. At minimum don't use a gift card.

4 out of 5 eggs Nice first impression 02/18/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1K)

Pros: Strong read/write performance, retractable connector, activity light

Cons: Cheesy retraction mechanism (rattles while open; tough to close)

Other Thoughts: Observed rock solid 120/75 MB/s read/write performance on 33 GB transfer using an old rig running a PCIe x1 USB3 card (reformatted to exFAT). That in itself is impressive! Not to far from what I see with a USB SSD. Device stayed reasonably cool during transfer. Favorable initial experience. Knocked off an egg for shoddy build.
