This review is from: Keurig 2.0 K350 Brewing System
Pros: None! Run AWAY!
Cons: I was given this K350 for a birthday present. It was purchased at Newegg on 10/31/2014. I had a Keurig about 3 years ago, enjoyed it for about 4 months, and it quit. Replacement machines quit similarly 2 more times until Keurig refused to send another. I guess this current machine was thought to be a perfect gift. WRONG! The Keurig branded machines are no more reliable than the old machines (built-in failure potential) that gave horrible service. Also, the new draconian DRM scheme to force unsuspecting customers to purchase Keurig K-cups ONLY will certainly be the death of this shyster company. And good riddance. Please do not give Keurig products to anyone you are friends with, or any of your loved ones. They don't need the grief that this company causes.
Other Thoughts: Don't get caught up in the seasonal sale prices on Keurig products. They are in trouble and their chance of survival is slim at best. Find another means to make delicious coffee. You'll be MUCH HAPPIER with your purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: NUANCE PaperPort 14
Pros: Theoretically, the essential functions of document management are incorporated in this version of PaperPort,
Cons: All functionality depends on consistent and accurate indexing of documents that are stored. For several versions now, including 14, this necessity has be broken. Their tech support is impossible to work with and their draconian registration/activation process and ongoing anti-piracy techniques make it almost impossible to keep the program running. Note... Nuance is actively trying to get acquired. Samsung is in deep negotiation, but they would only retain the voice recognition technology. All other Nuance product categories would be terminated. Investigate before you make a purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Build quality and easy of use top the list. The cable and case is solid, and the function of the ports and power button is perfectly fine. Spin-down of the drive (not all drives are constructed to spin down...not the dock's fault) works fine with 2.5" and 3.5" WD, Seagate and Samsung drives that I use. Great transfer rate with USB 2 and 3. So far all my functionality wants and needs have been met.
Cons: The design of the power adapter is poor. When the adapter is plugged in, it can tip or wobble with the slightest disturbance of the power cord. The result is potentially a poor AC power connection at the wall or power strip. This design opens the door to a high resistance connection that may be dangerous under certain circumstances. It's not a deal breaker, but it is a real safety and data integrity risk that I have to pay way too much attention to.
Other Thoughts: To resolve the power adapter issue, I've had to physically modify it's base to provide additional support when it is plugged in.READ FULL REVIEW
