ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T Tegra 3 32GB 10.1
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Shut out the whiner noise and buy it 09/14/2012

This review is from: ASUS Transformer Pad TF300T Tegra 3 32GB 10.1" IPS Tablet - White

Pros: Freakin thing just works. Android rocks on it. Fast, clear, beautiful screen, great camera. Outstanding network functionality. I use this thing on multiple wifi ndtworks, from enterprise setups to coffee shops, to residential. It connects every time. I use it with my tethered iphone and bluetooth; connects everytime. I even use this thing to remote assist in a pinch or connect to my biz server via rdp. It works. Buy one, you'll love it.

Cons: Uhhhmmmm, could be cheaper. Doesn't mow my lawn.

Rosewill RSV-S5 - 5-Bay 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Nice looking box
- easy to access trays
- well ventilated
- low price

Cons: Documentation in the box and what little is on the Rosewill website is poor, bordering on worthless. The design of this enclosure is also very poor; where to begin:

1. the status indicator lights cannot be seen when the door is shut. Truly, this is a minor issue. If there's a problem with the drive, I'm probably gonna know it before I check the lights.

2- the status indicator lights \cannot be seen from an angle more than 5 degrees above horizontal level with the drives. Translation, if you put the box anywhere lower than line-of-sight with the drives, you cannot see the lights.

3- The trays are cheap. The latch is really unintutitive and isn't really a tension/release latch at all, only an awkward handle to pull the drive out with.

4-the installation routine installs a very outdated version of java and doesn't function correctly without THAT version. Reinstalls ignore/overwrite any other Java version.

5- The quality of the included card is so bad it's stunning.

Other Thoughts: Review the drivers and control panel downloads on the Rosewill site carefully. Do NOT assume that the installer with correctly recognize your OS - it won't. Update the firmware from the Sil website.

Rosewill ought to be ashamed of this product; it is poorly conceived, poorly designed, and misrepresents both capability and compatibility in it's description. I would not suggest that anyone who is concerned about their data use this product. Both the hardware and software are outdated and very poorly implemented. I would return it, but the cost and headache of doing so outweighs any satisfaction I might gain. I'll just add a REAL raid card to it and move on. Can't say I'm very keen to make another Rosewill purchase.

SYMA S031 Gyro Metal Frame 3.5 CH RC Helicopter Jumbo Size
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

1 out of 5 eggs Funny, you would think it was supposed to fly... 12/31/2011

This review is from: SYMA S031 Gyro Metal Frame 3.5 CH RC Helicopter Jumbo Size

Pros: Looks awesome! It's FREAKIN' TWO FEET LONG! It is an impressive sight to behold and generates a tingling sensation in the brain when you look at it.

Cons: Well, I ASSUMED that this thing would fly. I mean, that is the intent of a RC aircraft, one would think. Sadly, it does not; most of the time it is unresponsive to the controller. At times, it just does nothing, stares at you with it's prettu led lights going back and forth, back and forth. At other times it teases you by starting up and lifting into the air as if it will fly!... then dropping out of the sky like a stone, usually assuming the previously described unresponsive state. Very sad, very disappointing. Still... it looks GREAT!

Other Thoughts: Unless you're looking for a magnificent conversation starter to place in your den or living room, move on.
