Genius DVR-FHD590 Full HD Vehicle Video Recorder with 128-Degree Wide Angle and G-Sensor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Don't know of any pros at this time, the camera died before I could test it.

Cons: Only had enough time to set up the camera's time and date, put stuck it to my window with the power plugged in all the time and it mysteriously died within a minute or two with the red light lit solid and never came back to life. Used the reset button multiple times, the screen flashed but nothing else happened. Left it charging throughout my 9 hour drive from Milwaukee to Nashville, no change in camera's status.

Other Thoughts: Really getting sick of the cheap Chinese made stuff that does not last. However tried getting a comparable speced camera that is not made in China and I did not have much luck finding one at any price range. Yes, I could use my Go-Pro but I would like to have a dash-cam that was specifically designed for that purpose (purpose specific functions).

ORICO 31W 4 Ports USB Charger Family-Sized Desktop Charger for iPhone 7 / 6s / Plus, iPad Air 2 / mini 3, Galaxy S7 / S6 / S6 Edge / Edge+, Note 5 & More - Black (DCH-4U-US)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Bought 2 of these chargers somewhere else, one was DOA. Contacted Orico, they asked me for a pic of it plugged in and right away sent me a replacement I got in 3 days. Awesome service. I then cracked the DOA one open to see the craftsmanship, I must say being an Electrical Engineer, I was impressed. They use a an actual linear transformer (expensive, price of copper is way up these days) instead of cheaper switching PS, and a transistor to further pulse-width-modulate a rectified signal. The craftsmanship inside was top notch, neat, and and input power cables were meticulously siliconed in place to prevent movement. Both, their service and build quality impressed me. Was expecting some cheaply made Chinese sub-par product and no warranty, but I was wrong. Both the replacement and the original working unit work well. It also seems that the rating is per port and not like most other chargers, 2A split between ports in use (total rating).

Cons: One of the two units was DOA but was quickly replaced by Orico. The blue "ON" LED is way too bright, can literally light up a room at night (can you say night-light?). Nothing that a piece of non-transparent tape won't fix but I should not have to do that. Definitely not to be used close to your bed (bought it for my bedroom to charge my phone at night).

Other Thoughts: It seems that Orico has a U.S. shipper since my replacement unit was sent from the States and I got it 3 days after contacting Orico. Their tech support also wrote in good English and answers were not canned. For the price of this charger, I say buy two!

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It has a nice sticker.

Cons: Arrived DOA, tried it on 5 computers, none were able to detect it. I order tens of thousands worth of computer equipment a year and it is the first time in several years that something arrived completely DOA straight out of the box (other than damaged during shipping). I emailed support, have not heard back so kept calling and left several messages, have not heard from Mushkin for weeks. Finally, they call me back and tell me that I have to RMA it through their web site, no advancement shipment is available and I have to pay for shipping. My view: if Mushkin chooses not to have quality control, they should at least pay for shipping both ways.

Other Thoughts: Last purchase of any Mushkin product for me. They want to be viewed as a high end company, well, they have to start acting like that to deserve the image they try to project during non-stop marketing recordings while on-hold for hours. My recommendation: stick with other SSD manufacturers, I wasted enough money on this garbage product and a Mikey-mouse operation named Mushkin.
