5 out of 5 eggs Love this Thermostat 02/18/2016

This review is from: Honeywell RTH9580WF Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat w/ Customizable Color Touchscreen

Pros: I did a lot of research before purchasing this Thermostat. When I'm in the family room and watching TV I simply open my cell phone and turn up the heat its really simple. Or if I feel I'm chilled I open my cell phone and check the temp using the Honeywell App. No pausing my show, walking through the house. You can change the color of the screen with themes to match your mood. SIMPLE TO USE.
I can be out at a jobsite and if the weather gets cold I can turn the heat up for my dog anytime anywhere.

Cons: The only Con is occasionally the Wifi will disconnect (Usually due to power failure or router unplugged) It does not always reconnect by itself. This leads to confusion but its like any other device that disconnects from Wifi. I read through many troubleshooting help files and the Honeywell forum and didn't find the fix until I experimented myself.
The fix is simple, go to the Thermostat, disconnect from your Wifi connection, reconnect. Then be patient it may take several hours at times (Usually several minutes) before it establishes a connection. Being PATIENT is the key.
Keep in mind routers sometimes lockup on the Wifi side so unplug your router, power back up. Go to Thermostat and disconnect from Wifi, reconnect and be PATIENT. This has never failed me....

Other Thoughts: I would repurchase this again and recommend it to my friends.
Friends do notice it when they visit and I'm happy to show them how simple it is to use.

Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

1 out of 5 eggs Download Product Stinks new low 03/07/2013

This review is from: Microsoft Office Home and Business 2013 Product Key Card - 1 PC

Pros: I would give it half an egg if possible. No Pros over 2010, with 2010 reinstall whenever you need to with an actual CD/DVD product in your hands.

Cons: Ok, so no CD/DVD install, you have to go through hoops to setup and account, verify this verify that. Download the product which will only work on one PC. Good luck if you want to reinstall from a virus or crashed drive. Do yourself a favor and purchase 2010 while you can. MS has a nasty habit of changing phone numbers and websites

Other Thoughts: I give Newegg ***** Eggs for returns by the way
Returns for the product to MS direct is a nightmare, transferred 3 times from dept to dept. MS will only take returns that are mailed to them with receipts. Takes 6 to 8 weeks for a check to be mailed to you. Caution before you buy.

Microsoft Office 2010 Professional

1 out of 5 eggs Office 2010 the file is currently in use try again later 04/12/2011

This review is from: Microsoft Office 2010 Professional

Pros: Its MS Office nothing much else compares "If it worked as it should on the most basic level"

Cons: "Office 2010 the file is currently in use try again later"
I am completely dissapointed that MS released an Office product that cant SAVE files properly?, Please Google the error many users are reporting in the above quotation. I continually receive the error in Word and Excel on a clean install of Win7 and Office 2010 on 3 of my machines. Of course MS technical support is blaming everybody but themselves. Turned off the AutoRecover and I still get the error (I Paid for AutoRecover it should be ON) only workaround is to SAVE AS another document type, then you get multiple saves of the same document in different sizes. Sometimes 0 bytes in size the files name is there but nothing you produced is in the document. Which has come back to haunt me on multiple occasions when I needed the information in the document but the document was empty. Never had this error in Office 2007. Rocky start for Office 2010 :(

Other Thoughts: I have to give it 1 star simply because such an expensive productivity product should not have such a huge significant problem that simply put "fails to make the user productive" You cant SAVE files with confidence.
