Acer C7 Chromebook C710-2847 11.6-inch WiFi  – Iron Gray
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs I like it, and I understand its limits 03/16/2013

This review is from: Acer C7 Chromebook C710-2847 11.6-inch WiFi – Iron Gray

Pros: Small, light, runs cool (cooler than any laptop I've owned.) Superfast boot. Sharp display. Not bad build quality. Excellent buy for $199. No virus vulnerability. No Windows-related sluggishness over time.

Cons: Chrome, as an OS, still needs a lot of work. File management is primitive. It's got this sizeable hard drive, but it's really best to focus on cloud storage. I like wireless mice. My 1st one (a Logitech) worked poorly. A different model Logitech works perfectly. Weakest feature of the hardware, by far, is the speakers. Their poor quality an badly located. Basically useless.

Other Thoughts: I have this, a good Toshiba laptop, and an iPad. I spent about 90% of my computing time on this machine. Perfect for writing (Google Docs) and for pretty much anything you can do in a browser. Most of the limits are inherent to the CHromebook concept. Just make sure you understand what you can and can't do with a Chromebook.

LITE-ON USB Red&Black External Slim DVD/CD Writer Model Esau208-76 LightScribe Support
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Stopped working with Windows 7 upgrade 11/18/2009

This review is from: LITE-ON USB Red&Black External Slim DVD/CD Writer Model Esau208-76 LightScribe Support

Pros: Light, cheap. Works under Windows XP.

Cons: I used the drive to upgrade my netbook to Windows 7. Ironically, once Win 7 was loaded, it would not longer recognize the drive. Lite-On's website is not helpful and the email I sent to Support has gone unacknowledged for 3 days.

Other Thoughts: Maybe a driver will pop-up at some point, but not so far.

Lexar JumpDrive FireFly (Black) 2GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model JDFF2GB-431
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Small. Terrific durable cap that fits a keychain well. Cap snaps on firmly. Very visible "working" light. Sturdy and solid.

Cons: I've never noted slowness or timed it, but I've also never been frustrated waiting on it to finish a read or write.

Other Thoughts: Really surprised at the number of negative reviews. I've used dozens of thumb drives and have owned two of these, kept on my key ring, for a couple of years. Never had a problem with this model, something I can't say of many others I've used. I have a bad habit of jerking the thing out the USB port without "ejecting" it and have never lost a bit of data as a result.
