Cons: Never worked. The network couldn't see it. I spent about 2 hours troubleshooting with help from Forums. Gave up.
Pros: Feels great to stand. I'm 6'4" and it's tall enough for me. Easy to lift and lower my two monitors. Keyboard fits. Mousepad is big enough for me.
Cons: Take a little to figure out the adjustment screws so it works with your monitors. Can't fit any monitors over about 23 or 24 inches.
Overall Review: It's expensive, but solidly built and works perfectly. I am comfortable working sitting or standing now.
Pros: Conceptually does what it says. Heats, vibrates, etc.
Cons: It's made for a wide face/head with no ability to adjust. So both my wife and I fell a lot of pressure on the bridge of the nose with this but the sides of the eyes aren't even touching. Defeats the purpose.
Pros: I have no idea. And now I'm supposed to type more so that I meet the minimum number of characters.
Cons: I must have completely misunderstood the description of this device. I was expecting to be able to open a door and slip in a hard drive and have it work. But this is just a casing of metal and plastic. There's no SATA connector! Okay, so maybe I'm supposed to just somehow wedge a SATA connector from my PC into the back slot or feed the cable in manually. The next problem is...it doesn't fit properly into my 5.25" bay! It's so loose that it's like I'm supposed to have a casing with a SATA connector that this entire product fits into. In fact, there's a picture of such a casing in the directions, but I don't have it! Complete waste of money and it has to go back.
Overall Review: Apparently this is for a specific ICY DOCK rack that I don't have and didn't understand was part of the equation.
Pros: It works for a solid week before dying.
Cons: FOUR OCZ's of mine died in a 6 month period while being used in 3 different computers. Each time OCZ replaced it under warranty but the fourth time I decided it was better to toss it in the garbage than to waste time constantly reimaging a new drive and going through a return hassle. Other SSD drives have worked fine, just not OCZ. Never again...even if they gave me one for free.
Pros: it actually came.
Cons: The playbook requires the user to swipe the frame of the device. you can't if you buy this case. completely worthless
Pros: It is the only way I can get my corporate email, calendar, tasks and notes onto a tablet.
Cons: Prepare to stare at blank screens and the "updating" circle icon. This device's software is so bad that if you do a search in the AppWorld and it doesn't find anything, it just shows a blank screen. It connects to my home wireless network and then can't connect to it 5 minutes later. The browser is so slow (when it works) I'd think I was on a 3G network instead of a 15Mbps wireless. There are literally dozens of apps you can download for it. This product isn't even worth the $200 I paid so I can't imagine how RIM thought they would get more. The performance of this device is what I would expect from a $79 Android device that I bought from Walgreens. I've played with it for 3 hours now, and I've had to reboot it 3 times for freezes, had 10 web pages never load (blank screen), the WiFi seems to randomly work, and I can logon using my Bberry id in one place but not another.
Overall Review: The ONLY reason to put up with this device is if you (like me) have a blackberry through work and your corporate email server is so locked down that you can't get to your email from an Android or Apple device. I have used both Android and Apple phones and either is so far advanced over this. Apple stuff just works, and Android stuff you can root and make it do what you want. Either route is a blessing over this PlayBook pile of garbage.
Pros: Fast when it was working.
Cons: I left a one star review previously where my drive died after about a month. I got a replacement...guess what? Dead after a WEEK. When I say dead, I mean data loss, can't reformat it, nothing. I have no idea what is happening, but I can't trust my data to this drive anymore.
Pros: Was fast...and fast to die
Cons: Completely dead after 5 weeks. Just long enough that I can't return it to Newegg. Can't access the drive at all. Lost data. Would not buy again.
