This review is from: Team C125 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TC12532GS01
Pros: Lots of storage cheap, compact package
Cons: Worked fine under Windows XP with FAT32 format, but didn't work in my Honda CRV Audio player. I tried low level format in FAT32, just didn't like it for not apparent reason. Mushkin with same EXACT FAT32 directory structure and files worked fine - go figure.
These drives get quite hot when written to, and run warm when being used. Won't burn your fingers or anything, but it isn't just warm after writing, it's hot.
Read and write speeds are on the slow side.
Other Thoughts: I won't be able to use it for my intended purpose, but it will work as a key chain flash drive.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Klipsch iGroove SXT 30-Pin iPod iPhone Speaker Dock
Pros: The Sound from this pint-sized speaker dock is truly impressive!!
Nice tonal balance, very clean and articulate sound. Crisp highs, but not exxagerated or distorted sounding. I have had quality JBL speakers from the 70s for 40 years, and I know what accurate reproduction sounds like. Listening to this reminds me of the first time I heard a Bose Wave Radio and thought, "How'd they do that in that little box?"
Yeah, it's not as impressive as the $400 Bose dock, but very pleasant to listen to at 1/4 the price. And still sounds good if turn it up Party loud inside. It doesn't want for bass or make pretend bass by distorting like so many small speakers do.
Carries well outside, and plenty loud enough unless you don't have neighbors for miles and really want to play Rock CRANKED.
I don't have any problems with the remote, maybe the battery saver tag left part of itself inside when pulled out? I opened the battery compartment and there was still a shred of paper in there.
The price is great - I paid $84 on sale.
Easy to carry around the house.
The loudness compensation buillt-in to the Klipsch renders the absence of tone controls relatively unimportant. Less to fool with. It just sounds good from Acoustic instruments, to Classic Rock, to String Ensembles and Symphonic Music recordings.
Surprisingly present and clean-sounding Bass, turned up or down.
Charges an iPhone 4 and my iPod Nano. 30 pin connector seems sturdy enough.
NOT UGLY - some of the docks they are putting out just look stupid to me. This one looks nice and doesn't stand out like a sore thumb. No space-ship, radio alarm clock, or other gimmicky cabinetry.
Cons: The dock adapters are numerous, but I keep my iPod Nano in a plastic case, and the adapter for the Nano won't take it with the case on. I just plug in in without the adapter - works fine without one. Not really very important. I suppose I could go to the trouble to enlarge the hole if it really bothered me.
No built-in alarm clock might be a con for some of you.
Won't take an iPhone 5 with the newer "lightening" connector - 30-pin connector devices only.
Other Thoughts: Perfect for the bedroom, kitchen, or sparse minimalist architecture
houses or apartments with an open design. When you read the dimensions and wonder how it can sound decent - just remember all the reviews of people here telling you how good this little sucker sounds!
This review is from: Western Digital My Passport Essential SE 1TB Portable Hard Drive (Red)
Pros: A great size to take with you and your laptop.
Sturdy case - I wouldn't be afraid to put it in my back pocket. I think it's some kind of tough plastic, but it feels substantial. If I squeeze it hard between my fingers and thumb, it flexes a tiny bit, but I can't feel it touching the guts inside.
Runs off ONE USB port power. The drivers for it are on the drive and the hardware wizard figures it out and fixes her right up, even on WinXP SP3.
Run cool even during long transfers. Not even warm.
Cons: I don't have a USB 3 port on my computer, but it works fine with USB 2. Does that count as a con? I can't say how it works on USB 3, but it seems pretty fast without having run any benchmarks.
Other Thoughts: I backed up a big My Documents folder with 10+ gigs on it, and it seemed faster than another external Hitachi I have with a 250M capacity, just by subjective reckoning.
Back up your backups.
