Pros: Cheap, at the time I ordered it was under 30 bucks.
Cons: I could not transfer more than 29.8GB of data onto this 64GB card. I decided to do a full format in Windows 7. Windows 7 could not format it and the format was stuck at 29.8GB. I tested the card with h2testw_1.4 and it could not write onto the card more than 29.8GB (50%). I tried other formatters and partitioning software, all of them could not go pass the 29.8GB mark either. The card worked great when the data written to it was under 29.8GB. It just didn't work when I tried to do anything over 29.8GB.
Other Thoughts: This is clearly a 32GB card that was programmed to show as 64GB, a common practice from China.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Blu Tank T190i 16 MB ROM, 32 MB RAM Black/Blue Unlocked Dual Cell Phone 1.8"
Pros: I bought this Blu T190i from Newegg store on e Bay to use as an emergency phone in case something happens to my Samsung Galaxy S2 and I can't use it. For under $30, this is a very good phone. The audio is loud and clear, the Bluetooth is very easy to set up, the FM radio has excellent reception, the size is very compact (great for pocket phone)... The specs said this phone would accept a microSD card with 8GB max but I tried a Samsung 16GB microSD in it and the card worked great with no problems. The battery after a full charge seems to last forever.
Cons: It was hard for me to figure out where to find the Bluetooth option in the MENU because BLU has put it under the Organizer submenu. It was very easy to pair the T190i with my Panasonic DECT 6.0 home phone system with Link-to-Cell feature. But every time I powered the phone OFF/ON or when I came back to the Bluetooth range, the T190i always asked me if I wanted to connect to the Panasonic DECT 6.0? The same thing happened when I paired the T190i with the Samsung Bluetooth headset. I do wish it has auto-connect like the other BT devices I'm using. A bit annoying but I'm not gonna complain about that too much given the low price of the phone. Now I will be happier if I can find where to order extra batteries for the T190i.
Other Thoughts: Charging the phone the 1st time took quite a long time, about 4 hrs or so. I took out the T-Mo SIM from the Samsung S2 and inserted into the SIM1 slot of the T190i, powered it up and I could use my cell phoneline instantly. Texting was hard and took longer when we got used to texting on a touch-screen phone. The specs said it accepted a microSD card with 8GB max but I didn't have an 8GB uSD card so I just tried the Samsung 16GB class-10 card laying on my computer desk and it worked without problems. The phone recognized the total size as 14.9GB which was correct because 16 * (1000/1024)^3 = 14.9. Honestly, I think a 4-8GB microSD card is a great size for this phone.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rosewill RC-408X 10/100Mbps 8-Port Fast Ethernet Switch
Pros: Compact size, 8 ports, great look, inexpensive (I bought it for 8.99 bucks shipped when it's on sale), running cool, never needs to reboot in 2 months now, auto MDI/MDIX, 10/100Mbps full duplex/half duplex auto-speed sensing & negotiation.
Cons: Very light weight so it tends to move in the direction of the weight of the cables attached to it.
Other Thoughts: I bought this RC-406X in 8/12 to use for the devices that didn't need Gigabit connection (2 network printers, the DirecTV receiver, the Yamaha AVR, the Panasonic 3DTV). I ran it off 1 of the LAN ports on the Trendnet TEG-S80G Gigabit switch. It's been running with no problems for 2 months now and I totally forgot about it most of the time. The switch is running only a bit warm to the touch. The 10/100Mbps full duplex/half duplex auto-speed sensing & negotiation is also great for VoIP ATA's, which (most of them) run at 10Mbps half-duplex by default. For the price I paid, this is a great buy. This is an excellent switch that we just plug then it plays and we forget it's there.READ FULL REVIEW
