Lantronix xPrintServer XPS1002HM-01-S Print Server - Home Edition For iOS Printing At Home RJ45 USB 2.0
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works with PC using Bonjour service per included instruction (single piece of paper). You can connect up to 8 USB printers.

Cons: 1) Works ONLY with iOS4 (e.g. v4.3.3) - both iOS3 & iOS6 (v6.0 & v6.1) not finding any printers. Even using PrintCentral app is useless since you have to know the port (80 connects but gives an error when printing with IPP protocol).

Even on iOS4 I can only see the USB printer(s) - and not the wireless ink printer, which is listed on the 'admin' part of this server's embedded website (http://xprintserver.local)

The real manual is online - to login to that box as an 'admin' check for updates you have to first register this device on company website.

Other Thoughts: Description and marketing materials (currently WRONG) should be updated to reflect limited compatibility with iOS devices - it is safe only for 1st gen of iDevices (since you cannot go beyond iOS4 on them).

Updates are directly from the device's web server. When checking online - there is FW v.1 only from 04/2012 - probably for the business model (NetworkEdition). Nothing for this unit (HomeEdition).

SAMSUNG 650 Series S27A650D Matte Black 27
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Great for longer distance viewing (less eye strain) due to 24" size.

Cons: At the mid bottom edge (at the menu/ config buttons) there is significant light leakage towards the center of the scree - visible very well on dark backgrounds/scenes or when monitor has no signal. That might be caused by overly tightened frame (touch slightly screen and you will see same effect). This part of the screen must have light source underneath (central location rather dispersed?).

Other Thoughts: Light patch extends in two bands (lobes) to the left and to the right covering two soft triangles of ca. 1/10 x 1/15 of screen size each.
This might be 'normal' since this monitor is classified 'business' class.
Still it is an example of poor quality control.

OCZ RevoDrive 3 series PCI-E 120GB PCI-Express 2.0 x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) RVD3-FHPX4-120G
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: PCI-E SSD drives from OCZ work flawlessly for only few months - after that completely die.

Cons: Eric S. from technical support / customer service processed my RMA relatively quickly, but instead of replacing FAULTY "Z-Drive 2" (M84 model) stated that: "after putting new system it was fine for an hour". Multiple times at various stages of the RMA I noted that drives dies after short usage between few hours to a day - and it would not rebuild the array for days and multiple power-cycles. Than I could use it for another hour or so. Last of 8 memory banks would fail per the setup screen - I even offered to make a picture of the screen. "Not necessary" they responded. At the end they newer tried to recover the system already present, but put a new one and tested for too short to detect anythging. They do not want to look into logs of that card / SSD. There newer was a comment about that. No option on the diagnostic screen whatsoever - you can only see dead banks, cannot re-organize existing RAID. IMHO for all failing products they will tell you that "you are wrong".

Other Thoughts: Think twice if you need an SSD working only for 7 months at best. Faulty bank will never be replaced at their facility - insted you will be pointed out as a source of the problem, because they will find nothing wrong with the product. I will follow with video update of this review.
