Pros: -Small footprint
-well designed power pad
_has a LED Blue light that Glows through the glass and lets you know it is heating
-Has a loose teal leaf filter in the pouring lid
_excellent for multiple water heating needs in the morning..Tea, Cocoa, instant Oatmeal all in one convenient kettle!
_Very well Balanced!! easy pouring.
_No need to wash just wipe out the stainless plate and glass sides.
Cons: _not really a con but has a short cord. No problem for most countertops.
_the pot must not be submersed in water..
Overall Review: I purchased this for my wife because she always heats water in the Microwave. This is way more convenient. I will purchase another for work! Great for freeze dried foods!!!
Pros: simple lines works plug and play...Has the great feel for a Palming mouse not too extravagant. Long cable for desktop PC
Overall Review: I would recommend this Mouse
Pros: speedy when working.
Cons: Terrible software included..Windows dependent.. easily corrupted storage BEWARE of the DOS based secure erase.. You need to pay attention when formatting this drive.. After you initialize the drive it is near impossible to go back to factory default. If you initialize as GPT or MBR you must accept that If you use the supplied magician secure erase in windows it will identify as frozed and send you to the DOS based secure erase.. BAD Move.. It will brick this unit ! what happens is it will ask for a password at the end of the secure erase procedure and send you back to the DOS command prompt in a viscous cycle!
Overall Review: Wish it had softwear that worked out of windows for maintenance and performance improvement..
Pros: Great flexibility..Positive connection
Overall Review: great for 2.0 speaker setups from sound card on motherboard to speaker pod
Pros: THIS is the way to go with PC backup systems IF you do not have a NAS.
Format the laptop drive you have in this unit with exFAT in windows 7, that way it can be identified as a removable hard drive (storage). and left in the desktop!!
EZ and secure latching system!!
Do not worry about the bright activity light!! It is great once windows identifies this as a removable drive it works Flawlessly!! REMEMBER if you use this drive Format GPT and exFAT. You cannot go wrong!!!!!
Cons: Wish I would have found this system years ago!!
Overall Review: USE a WD black edition laptop Drive 7200rpm with 5 year warranty that Beats ANY external drive!!!
SUPER fast Backups of Large HD video files with absolutely NO corruption.
Purchase Extra trays for additional hard drive fast swaps!!
Pros: Fits on a MicroATX board without problems!
Much quieter than a stock AM3 cooler
Extremely efficient cooling!!
Mounts wery well with OEM mounting style!! No adapter plate required for mounting on an IN place Upgrade.
Cons: Rosewill specific Fan mounting only
Overall Review: If you are able to exhaust directly out the rear or top case fan , Your temps are kept down to 34C on general computing tasks. Once the processor is loaded down heavily, the temps do not exceed 40c!!! Dual core AMD Athlon X2 245 Linux 64 OS/Win 7 64 USE arctic Silver5
Pros: Neat package!! Filter at spout for keeping the dregs out of that cup of coffee!!!!Nice and Hot!! Hope it can last!!
Takes standard basket filters... Nice programming!! Can use thick mugs without spilling a drop!!
Cons: Burns the coffee after 1 hour... Nasty after it simmers over 1 hour.... Plastic holding tank ..
Best to expect to finish your brew before it gets the burned taste..
Overall Review: Works well with Starbucks ground coffee. BETTER tasting after just brewed than purchased starbucks. DO NOT LET THE COFFEE SIT OVER ONE HOUR IT WILL BURN!!! mostly because it has a flat bottom coffee Resevoir that has a Hot Plate that simmers the coffee (actually you can hear it simmering when the level falls to 2 cups left in the unit)
Pros: The price factor being the most cost effective.
3 platter high density advanced format
Cons: Poor customer support from Samsung.
firmware issues with AHCI mode
full of bad sectors, failed to format
Overall Review: These hard drives are a gamble to say the least. Very corruptible sectors on the platters need to run a hard drive repair utilitiy constantly in Unix based systems.I have heard of bad performance within Windows due to the firmware issues. You need to run these in IDE mode
Pros: Super quiet, fit well in Antec Sonata 2 Midsize PC case Modular cables nicely loomed in nylon mesh sleeves.
Cons: Short warranty only 3 years. it was 2 years 11 months .....and I thought my Motherboard or the case Power button was to blame. Long time to trouble shoot because of the slow death of this power supply. Unexpected slow failure consisted of flickering LED lights in the Antec sonata 2 case. one in a while I would have to quickly activate the rocker switch on the powersupply and all would be well for 3 or 4 boots and then it finally spazzed on all boots, but worked well as long as the PC was left on.
Overall Review: TOTALLY disappointed and lost $135.00!! MFG warranty was NOT honored. Expected to have this power supply as long as my old antec Tru Blue 480 still going strong after 7 years!!
Repaced with XFX p1-750b-CAG9....From the EGG of course!!
Pros: Exact same as OCZ PS, Low noise. Lasted 3 years exactly. will boot up from standby mode in powersave option , but not from full power down(complete restart with Power button on computer Momentary contact switch on the computer case)
Cons: At exactly 3 years I had just started experiencing Sporatic booting problems from low power. After push button power on Momentary contact swiTch replacement on my Antec sonata 2 case .problem persisted. PCpower & cooling IS my next supply to replace this OCZ rebranded power supply.
Overall Review: Zalman still makes good CPU coolers though
Pros: Ultra quiet... Runs cooler than Others!! SATA 2 works well with XPpro and INTEL chipsets and Intel motherboards
Cons: Poor documentation on chipset limitations at the samsung website. Live and learn format limitations!! Maxes out at 1 TB with NVidia 750i chipsets
Overall Review: XP pro 32bit sp3..... Some one Needs to point out the limitations of formatting a 2 TB drive on Nvidia 750i sli chipset. Maximum 1TB will NOT format any higher. and will not recognize a formatted partition on this drive. had to resort to an INTEL board after successful formatting 2 TB on an Old intel Bad axe 2 975 board. Nvidia is ALLWAYS behind the curve in compatability with Microsoft operating systems.
Pros: Recharges your I pod as it plays or on standby. Excellent Bass. universal mounting without adapter shoes
Cons: The volume automatically gos Waaaayyy high when your Ipod Nano is first inserted!! Need to address this problem.
Overall Review: Needs an equalizer to adjust the high and Low frequency
