Rosewill RTCG-ML-D2850B (MLD2850B) High Yield Black Toner Replaces Samsung ML-D2850B ML-D2850B/XAA ML-D2850A ML-D2850A/SEE
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Works in my Samsung 2850D
Easy to install, no mess, no fuss
Trouble-free in operation
Works with Samsung's print monitor to show toner levels

Cons: Got slightly fewer pages than rated for
Slightly squeaky-noisy, didn't affect performance

Other Thoughts: When I got the toner-low warning at 9%, my printer stats said I had gotten 3789 pages out of this cartridge. So if it's rated for 5000 pages, when it dies, I'll have gotten about 4200 pages out of it. That's probably fair, and I probably print more toner-intensive content overall than the average, so I'll still call it a good value.

It does squeak a little in operation, and you can smell it while it's printing, but those are not really problems, just things I notice.

All in all, this one has been a good toner value. I got two of them, so I'll be putting the second one in shortly.

Alpine Swiss Men's Wallet Extra Capacity 2 Bill Sections 16 Card Slots ID Window Real Leather

4 out of 5 eggs Easy to move into. It's a wallet. I like it. 11/29/2014

This review is from: Alpine Swiss Men's Wallet Extra Capacity 2 Bill Sections 16 Card Slots ID Window Real Leather

Pros: Has enough places for cards
Compact size fits well in back pocket
Seems reasonably well made

Cons: Would like it if inner pocked zipped like my old wallet.
Not roomy enough for billionaires who deal only in cash

Other Thoughts: It's a wallet. I was able to move from my old, beaten-up wallet into this one without much trouble. It's nice that it has a middle flap to have enough space for all the cards we get. For most of us, anyway. Besides, if you have seven credit cards and 10 punch cards from businesses you frequent, maybe you need a man-purse instead.

My old wallet had a place I could stick extra keys, the pocket on each side between the card areas and the money holding area, and it zipped, so the keys wouldnt' fall out. This has the same pocket, but it's not secured. My extra keys are unlikely to fall out, I must admit.
Tip: Keep an extra car key (skinny model) in your wallet for those oops times you lock yourself out. Keep an extra house key in there too.

GE 169209 Black Digital Coffee Maker

5 out of 5 eggs Good tasting coffee, great little coffee maker 09/04/2014

This review is from: GE 169209 Black Digital Coffee Maker

Pros: * Brews good tasting coffee
* Permanent filter basket, works well
* Easy to get to brew basket to add coffee
* Brews fast enough for my needs
* Has lots of useful features

Large Sprayer head distributes hot water evenly over brew basket

Cons: * Wish it had a battery backup for clock
* Replacement carafe's cost $30, don't break yours

Other Thoughts: Great little coffee maker. I retired a Mr. Coffee E-Lume in favor of this. Got a Keurig single serve brewer, tried it, decided I liked this GE better, returned the Keurig.
My GF broke the carafe by accident; I went to get a replacement on an Amaz-ing site, and found they were $27! I decided to switch coffeemakers, and tried another Mr. Coffee, but it was low end with single water spout over brew basket, and simply didn't make nearly as good coffee as this GE. My GF concurs and then some.
I got lucky and found a white carafe at Goodwill of the same size/design for $2. I switched out the white plastic parts on the carafe with the black parts from the broken carafe, perfect fit. and it's back in service looking like new.
I looked at new coffee makers too, and none of them looked any better than this GE, just more expensive.
Apparently GE stopped making coffee makers over a recall issue, but this coffee maker, when you get a working one, is a real gem.
Next time I get a new coffee maker I will probably get a Mr. Coffee mid-higher range unit, or a Black and Decker, or a Hamilton Beach, as they have easily replaced carafes available new for $10 or so.
In the meantime, I'm very happy with this one, and I might just pay the $30 for a new carafe if I have to, now that I know the other things out there aren't better, and in fact most aren't as good.
