Pros: They are optical media sleeves... the product does exactly what I needed, but Newegg came through when another vendor left me hanging. See other thoughts.
Cons: The clear window is slightly smaller, so I have to print the media type a bit closer to the center of the disk... a small inconvenience. They are heavier weight paper, but that could be under the Pro heading just as well.
Other Thoughts: I had ordered similar sleeves from another vendor and expected them to barely arrive in time, but two days later, no ship confirmation, so I saw these on Newegg, and figured a "backup" purchase might save me. Luckily, Newegg came through and I had my sleeves in time for my deadline and the other sleeves came in three days later, so now I won't need to order sleeves for quite some time. I'll look on Newegg for sleeves next time I need them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Transcend 2.5" 512GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) TS512GSSD370S
Pros: Boot time improved by 45 seconds or more. Websites now display with the same speed as when I moved from a phone modem to a cable modem... which has slowed considerably over subsequent years.
Cons: It took this long for the prices to drop to my ability to pay.
Other Thoughts: I have two video editing machines that occupy the same corner desk. I can start them both at the same time. Before the addition of this SSD these two Win7 Pro machines would start within seconds of each other. Now the SSD boot drive machine is ready nearly a minute before the other one. I haven't done any converting or rendering, yet... but I will very shortly, hoping for similar results to the boot test. I'm just waiting for the next SSD sale to launch.
I've done all sorts upgrades to speed up my computers, from doubling RAM to video card upgrades. Of all the singular hardware items I have ever purchased, this was the most effective, short of building a new machine with at least two CPU generational jumps. Even those haven't made me feel this good about my expenditure.
This review is from: Corel VideoStudio Pro X6
Pros: The price was really good for not being an upgrade version. I had two purchases of the X4 version, which I learned was nearly the same as this newer one. I was relatively knowledgable about using the product.
Cons: I had difficulty installing the software, and found how difficult it is to get help, when you have difficulty with a Corel product. Somehow, I couldn't talk to their forums, because they said I didn't know my password from previous visits. When I tried use their "forgot password" function, they said my email address was not registered with them. When I tried to create a new account, they said my email address was already in use, and to ask for a new password. Luckily, updating DirectX at Microsoft fixed the problem, and I won't be needing their stuffed shirt forums, which you can't email the moderator, unless you have a membership. Sheesh... what a mess. But the software does exactly what I want it to do, once it's installed. I just have about a dozen more gray hairs, and about two dozen fewer.
Other Thoughts: After the circle twerk I did with that bunch, I don't want to think about it anymore.READ FULL REVIEW
