This review is from: Dirt Devil SD40050B DashMulti Bagless Canister Vacuum with Vac+Dust Tool & Swipes
Pros: small and much more powerful than expected.
the upright tube is telescoping and can be adjusted for people that are not tall.
Cons: the description did not say that it was an open box purchase.
Other Thoughts: minus all eggs for deceptive marketing plus two eggs for product quality leaves two eggs to the good.
after i got through all the outer packing material it was clear the the box had been closed again after having been opened.
i almost sent it back without opening it.
i decided to take the risk and try it anyway, but i'm not happy with this forced choice.
the machine works better than expected, so i'll keep it.
if it works for a reasonable amount of time before it breaks down/burns out it will be a good purchase.
if it had been new and not "open box" i would give it 5 stars.
i have seen offers to replace items in these situations if the item is sent back.
if you want to do that send me a new one with a paid return postage label and i'll send this one back to you AFTER i inspect the one you send as a replacement.
i took the risk and trusted you, now it's your turn to trust me.
do i sound frustrated?
This review is from: BYTECC HM-VGA005 HDMI-A to VGA Female Adapter/Converter
Pros: it's a powered adapter and has a very good chance of doing the job.
it seemed to be able to get pictures on a monitor that was not able to display the minimum resolution for this device.
but the monitor was making screaming noises so i discontinued trying to find a mode that worked. my fault, not the devices fault.
the monitor couldn't display the required mode.
i feel sure that it will work when i get something that will.
Cons: i didn't know it wouldn't work till i got it and read the docs.
Other Thoughts: it didn't work with the old super VGA monitor i wanted it to work with, but that could be because the old monitor couldn't get up to the adapters lowest resolution. this is a powered adapter and needs to plug into a USB port for power. DOT NOT BUY A DISPLAY ADAPTER OF THIS TYPE THAT IS UNPOWERED. i expect this to work with a flat panel display that does not have the HDMI input, but does have the vga input because it will display at or above the minimum resolution of this device. . .good purchaseREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Spore PC Game
Pros: i loved the game and there is a way around the DRM.
i payed for the game when it first came out.
so i am an honest owner.
Cons: the DRM.
the lock that won't allow you to install it forced me to use illegal methods to use a game i am an honest owner of.
and it doesn't stop people from getting around it.
it is a bad idea and i hope it is never repeated.
Other Thoughts: if you look around you will find there is an illegal fix for this DRM problem.
i was forced to use it, and you can use it too.
i will give no more details, but this is a problem that drives honest people like me to use illegal methods to get around something that should not be there in the first place.
