GARMIN 7.0
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Early Death Battery Not Covered by Warranty 06/07/2014

This review is from: GARMIN 7.0" GPS Navigation w/ Lifetime Map & Traffic Update

Pros: Overall, quite a good GPS device

Cons: Poor warranty terms and lack of spares on Garmin's website.

Other Thoughts: After less than 6 months, the internal lithium-polymer battery (part # 361-00066-00) in my Garmin 2797 LMT died. Garmin's 12 month Limited Warranty is lame and excludes "consumable parts, such as batteries", which is poor for a unit that costs $250.

I was unable to find a replacement battery on Garmin's website. Google found part # 361-00066-00 at a well known auction site and for about $14, I got a new one. To replace the battery you'll need some tools: A T-6 torx bit to undo the ten small screws around the back of the case. A piece of thin, hard plastic. A short (about 3 inches long), thin (1/8th inch), flat-blade screwdriver.

Remove the 10 torx screws at the back of the case. Run the plastic 'pick' around the seam between the two halves of the case -- press it into the crack and gently twist all the way around to separate the two halves of the unit. Open the case carefully because there's a ribbon wire harness inside that links the two halves.

Pull the battery connector upwards using its wires (the connector is a push-on, rather than a plug-in type). The battery is held in the case with a piece of plastic, coated on both sides with very sticky adhesive. It has to be removed carefully to avoid breaking the Nuvi's thin plastic case.

Insert the thin flat-blade screwdriver below the corner of the battery next to the strongest part of its recess (there's a rounded plastic web in one corner of the battery pocket) and gently lever downwards on the screwdriver handle. You should hear the sound of adhesive releasing. As the adhesive starts to yield, push the screwdriver blade in a bit more and continue with gentle downwards pressure on the screwdriver handle. After a few minutes, all the adhesive should have yielded and the battery can be removed and replaced. Press the two halves of the case gently back together and carefully tighten the 10 torx screws.

Rosewill RC-USB-PS2-BG 6
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Rosewill PS2-to-USB Works 4 Me! 01/05/2013

This review is from: Rosewill RC-USB-PS2-BG 6" USB to Dual PS/2 Adapter Cable - Beige

Pros: I have a couple of these Rosewill adapters that are working fine (on two identical PCs), between USB ports driven by SB750 chipset (Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3 mobos) and PS2 mouse and keyboard ports on an ancient, but still fully functional, 4 port Belkin Omni View SE KVM.

Cons: none, so far.

Other Thoughts: No problems encountered under either Win7 or VMware ESXi (runs a Linux kernel first and then loads vmkernel)
