NUANCE PaperPort Professional 14.0

2 out of 5 eggs Declining performance.... 11/21/2014

This review is from: NUANCE PaperPort Professional 14.0

Pros: Worked well when first installed.

Cons: Performance declined until it was unusable.
See other thoughts.
I rated it at two stars instead of one because I get almost 3 months of useful performance out of it.

Other Thoughts: I installed this on a newly built machine with attention paid to a clean install of Win 7 Ultimate w/ no unneeded extras. For sure I thought all the complaints about this product were unjustified....and I have been a user of PaperPort since around V6 I think- it has been a primary program for me. Worked great at first except it installed no less than 4 versions of MS Visual C+, then with updates, it settled at 15 versions. Then a Flexnet updater as well. It still worked fine and I was happy until the performance steadily decreased, becoming slower until it became unproductive. Went through all the troubleshooting, 2 proper re-installs, etc. Nuance Cust Svc? Good luck. Unless you can get this for $30 (and the rebate took 14 weeks) I can't recommend it. Could be fixed (IF the install/reinstall works as it should, which it didnt in my case, again good luck with Nuance CS) but no way is it worth the time to troubleshoot- there is a better product out there.

5 out of 5 eggs Very light on system resources.. 04/30/2014

This review is from: Webroot SecureAnywhere Internet Security Complete 2014 5 Devices - Download

Pros: Very light on system resources
Always the latest version
Customer support was good when contacted
See other thoughts

Cons: Will used some data if used on a phone, but not a worry if you have unlimited data
Lack of internet connection will affect performance

Other Thoughts: Works very well for my purposes, running it on XP, Win 7 starter, and Win 7 Pro. Per WR Customer Support: "Disregard the version year, you always have the latest product because we update daily". Also, "You can take advantage of a good price and add the key to your existing subscription (be aware of your version e.g. Complete vs. Plus, etc. and also the number of devices ) and it will 'stack' (add on) to your existing subscription, or, you can save it indefinitely- your subscription date starts when you add the key to the first device".

Rosewill REGD-TN439L0 Infrared Thermometer

5 out of 5 eggs Good Value 04/30/2014

This review is from: Rosewill REGD-TN439L0 Infrared Thermometer

Pros: Good value
Backlit display
C and F scales
See other thoughts...

Cons: None noted

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these and compared them side-by-side. They read within a 1/10 of an F degree at 100F, within 1/2 of a F degree at 32F - consistency between units is always a good sign. It might not be accurate enough for research work, but its great for comparing relative temperatures. I used it to test the case temperatures of some modems, routers, and power supplies I recently bought and it worked well. As with any IR thermometer, the surface color (clear vs. black, etc.) and texture (rough or perforated, etc.) can make some readings inaccurate (but relatively close). At $17 on a SS deal, is a great value.
