This review is from: HP Officejet 200 ISO: On AC: Up to 10 ppm, On Battery: Up to 9 ppm Draft: On AC: Up to 20 ppm, On Battery: Up to 18 ppm Black Print Speed 4800 x 1200 dpi Color Print Quality Wi-Fi Thermal Inkjet Color Printer
Pros: The 1st thing I noticed was the super solid build quality, I have never had a printer that felt this solid and well built.
The set up took just a few minutes and was extremely breezy, so refreshing as lately this is lacking with a ton of new products. You can finally get them to work but the software is so clunky and not well thought out that it is a pain. NOT WITH THIS, I was set up and printing in literally just about 15 minutes from opening the box to grabbing the pages out of the printer.
So much faster printing than I expected with a battery powered mobile printer. Slightly faster when plugged in but still good on battery.
Great print quality and no format issues, it just prints what it was asked without having to go to properties and change anything. Font looks beautiful and clear and fits page perfect.
Battery has a good life span, to be honest it hasn't run out yet but I didn't print 1,000 pages either.
Charges pretty fast. An hour or so from 15% to 100%.
If you are extremely mobile and need something that doesn't require power or a cable to connect to the internet this is perfect.
Easily connects to mobile devices, laptops and PC's works like a charm. I was able to print from my phone, think pad and my PC without even a small problem. It just does the job.
Cons: A little bit expensive for a printer without some all in one features but to be completely honest it's worth it to me because it's so hassle free.
The UI screen is a bit small and has a narrow viewing angle. No a big one but a con none the less.
Battery got a bit warm after a while of use but not drastic.
Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this and am glad I have it. I work in my office, at a storage unit that is used as a warehouse and at customers homes and will love bringing this to make printing
easy, accessible pretty much anywhere. I still can't get over how solid this thing feels. HP has changed my opinion about their products with this. I have had a pretty low opinion of them in the past.
I will not overlook them in the future.
This review is from: Wemo Switch Smart Plug, Wi-Fi, Works with Alexa
Pros: Once set up the Wemo Switch is very handy and easy to use.
Solid build quality, doesn't feel cheap.
The app is easy to use and works well with a wireless network.
The app recognized the Wemo Switch right away.
Cons: Only one issue while once set up it worked fine I had serious issues getting my phone to work with this. I don't think I should have to change my phones settings in order for an app to work with it. It just seems like a bit more testing and tweaking would have saved me an hour and a half of frustration. While the app recognized the Wemo straight away I had to try and connect over and over, changing wifi settings on my phone until it would completely connect. It won't connect unless it only sees 1 network on my phone and frustrated me to no end. 1 Egg off for this and honestly I almost gave up on it completely before it actually worked.
Other Thoughts: Please do some work on the app and save customers a lot of trouble.
P.S. Not all phones have this problem. Mine is an LG Android based unit with the newest OP system.
This review is from: Fractal Design Define Nano S Black Window Silent Mini ITX Mini Tower Computer Case
Pros: Beautiful design, perfect for a HTPC which is what I use it for.
Very easy to build in with a great layout and mounting for watercooling. If you chose a shorter GPU the RES and Pump will be easy to mount with plenty of room. You can mount everything with a 12" GPU it's just a bit tighter. Good RAD mounting options.
Very sturdy but not too heavy.
Great cable management options especially because ITX boards has most connections at the top and there are 2 holes with grommets for this although a slightly bigger one for the 24 pin cable would have been perfect and made it almost invisible.
Good SSD and HDD mounting options to keep them hidden.
Pretty quiet, although the solid side panel version will mute the sound even more.
Fits long GPU's, depending on what you use for cooling.
Fits up to 160mm Air cooling towers (yes it fit's a Hyper 212 evo for those who care but only by 1mm).
Overall just a very clean and well thought out design. Very pleased with my build and it blends so well with the other components in my home theater set up.
Cons: I would really have liked to seen a fan controller for at least 3 or 4 fans due to the fact that it's an ITX case and the mostly come with only 1 extra fan connection. With it's watercooling capabilities I would have payed $10 more just for this to be built in to the case with a switch that has 3 settings.
Other Thoughts: My system includes a Z97 Mini ITX, a Pentium 3.7 Ghz CPU, 8 Gigs of DDR3, Corsair H60, 5 fans, Corsair CX450M PSU, 240 GB SSD. I will be adding more to it later but for streaming it's cheap, quiet and beautiful.
I have also just built a system in the Core 500 form Fractal which is there even smaller ITX case and that turned out just as good for me. Kudo's to Fractal Design for giving builders great options to build in with pleasing aesthetics and quiet operation.
