Rosewill RTCA-FX9 Black Toner Replaces Canon 104 0263B001

1 out of 5 eggs Awful products 06/14/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RTCA-FX9 Black Toner Replaces Canon 104 0263B001

Pros: None

Cons: Ordered "X" higher capacity cartridges for my Canon 4370DN. Received HP cartridges that of course did not fit. My initial request for correction was refuted as I was told they were the exact same thing. Went to trouble of photographing empty Canon vs. new HP to show physical differences, as well as failure to seat into printer. Was finally told to return them for replacement. Also received acknowledgement that there are no such think as high-capacity refills for this printer. When new order was finally received and installed, cartridges started to leave white blotches and streaks after about a week of light printing. With both cartridges, I had to remove, rotate to distribute toner and squeeze a few more pages at a time out of what I consider are low-capacity refills more like starters. I will never go through this again.

Other Thoughts: The supplier was pleasant enough once we got passed the denials, hence one egg.

3 out of 5 eggs Funny quirks 04/19/2009

This review is from: GARMIN 4.3" Navigation with MSN Direct Service

Pros: Quick satellite locks, spoken street names and advance navigation prompts. Very good screen info. When matched to Garmin's own beanbag-style mounting, offers quick release without having to remove cable.

Cons: Voice hilarious when pronouncing abbreviated addresses. "St" becomes "Saint", not "Street". "Dr" becomes "Doctor", not "Drive". "MLKing Dr" becomes "Milking Doctor" (what if his initials had been "FC"?)

Setting and retaining routes not intuitive. I entered 12 real estate listings to visit, stored them and then found only the start and end points had been saved. Also, one day the trip from east Bradenton to St. Pete says take I-75, the next I-275 for the same exact route with no change in preferences.

Western Digital Caviar RE WD1600YS 160GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: To soon to tell whether this RE model will be as stable as reviews say. I know the RE makes it an excellent RAID drive, but I wanted stability and longevity as a non-RAID boot drive.

Cons: I replaced an old Seagate series 7 Sata I 160gb with 8mb cache that scored 5.5 on the Vista Windows Experience Index. This drive, with Sata II and 16mb cache, drops to 5.4! Going into Device Manager and running a performance test of my nVidia nForce Serial ATA Controller shows a theoretical maximum of 300mb/sec, an actual burst speed of 91 and a sustained rate of 61! Write caching is enabled.

Other Thoughts: There was also a problem on booting it up after restoring an OS image. Chkdsk /f found six bad clusters and restored the data. I'm just not sure about using this alone in a non-raid setup.
