Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

3 out of 5 eggs Cheap Printer 09/23/2014

This review is from: Canon Pixma MG5520 Wireless Photo All-In-One Inkjet Printer,Black

Pros: Cheap @ $50. Compact size. Nice control panel. Easy wireless setup. Lots of mobile features. Decent color.

Cons: Slow boot time until ready to print & slow office printing. Not for heavy use. Heavy ink usage. WAY overpriced ink cartridges. Average color print quality. No USB thumb drive port nor memory-card reader.

Other Thoughts: Marked down from $150 to $50. I use at home. If you plan to use a printer for business office I strongly suggest paying more for a laser. If you don't need color perhaps get $400 office quality monochrome laser and use this or another inkjet for color.

COUGAR CF-V12HB Vortex Hydro-Dynamic-Bearing (Fluid) 300,000 Hours 12CM Silent Cooling Fan (Black)

Pros: Quiet. Efficient. Compatible. Good mounting. Pretty.

Cons: Needs instruction in mounting the rubber mounts. Not sold (yet) on hydro-dynamic-bearing feature.

Other Thoughts: Bought hoping the higher price and well-hyped hydro-dynamic-bearing makes this fan last longer than the cheap Antec fan whose shaft froze. Time will tell. I don't require large CFM so plugged the 3-pin connector into the MB's chassis fan plug. Works great. CPU fan no longer runs at high RPM when room temp. is hot. HINT: I used silicone spray (a little wet hand soap works also) to allow the rubber mounts to pull through the fan mounting holes. Used pliers and circular motion to pull HARD on the rubber mount to get it through the fan holes. Same with mounting to case.

Western Digital AV-GP WD3200AUDX 320GB IntelliPower 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

Pros: Fast. Cheap. Easy installation.

Cons: Slower (surprise) but still 5x cheaper than equivalent SSD. Hard disks fail often. This hasn't yet.

Other Thoughts: I have had good luck with WD so I stick with them. Others have not had such good luck.
