Amazon.com Product Description

The HL-5170DN from Brother is a network-ready monochrome laser printer with a high-quality print image and a number of expandability options. Resolutions run as high as 2,400 x 600 dpi, thanks to Brother's HQ1200 technology, resulting in accurate and crisp graphics and text. Print speeds of up to 21 ppm deliver jobs quickly so that you're free to focus on other tasks.

With the 133 MHz Fujitsu SPARClite processor and 32 MB of internal memory (upgradeable to 160 MB), the HL-5170DN is able to handle medium to large print jobs. Automatic duplexing allows you to easily print double-sided documents. A 250-sheet standard input tray is accompanied by a 50-sheet multi-purpose tray and a 150-sheet output tray. An optional 250-sheet tray is also supported. The printer accepts a wide variety of paper types, including plain paper, envelopes, bond, transparencies, labels, and card stock. Supported sizes include letter, legal, executive, A4, A5, A6, and B6.

The HL-5170DN connects to the host computer via parallel, USB, or 10Base-T Ethernet ports. An automatic interface switching feature means you don't need to adjust any printer settings when you change sources. The network interface allows you to print from any computer connected to the network and supports a wide range of networking protocols.

The 100/120 VAC 50/60 Hz power supply consumes about 460 watts of power during normal operation and about 75 watts during sleep mode. Compatible with PC, Mac, and Linux operating systems, the HL-5170DN also comes backed by a one-year limited Express Exchange warranty.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Value For The Money - Forget HP!
I bought an HP 1320N ($399 on a rebate sale) which seemed like the perfect printer for my OS9/OSX systems at first. However, in OS9 it didn't work at all with AppleTalk (via Chooser), but when connected via AppleTalk LPR (using the Desktop Printer Utility) it went nuts trying to print from Quark Xpress 4.11 (one of my main programs). It would endlessly print a few lines of postscript code on each page from its tray until it was exhausted (then showed an out of paper error to continue its endless printing). Only programs like MS Word would print correctly in the OS9 environment via LPR. In OSX it worked fine using Rendezvous. Then on the sixth day of ownership its network card decided to stop all communication with Rendezvous and even IP printing. I tried re-checking all parameters and settings and finally did resets. No print jobs would complete all the way through pausing at 92% data transferred with nothing printed. This was ridiculous for a company like Hewlett Packard which long has had an excellent reputation in my mind, especially in the Mac graphics world. The 1320N has ended my favorable opinion of HPs since their model lines above the 1320 weren't competitive with other brands. Also, I've been noticing several 1320's (3 total) both regular and N models on display at retail stores showing unrecoverable print errors with their blinking orange LED in the middle of its array. Short of turning it off and on, press any button or open the front toner loader panel and it will still not recover. BTW, they had paper in their paper trays.

My OS9/OSX printer prayers are now definitely answered with the Brother 5170DN ($299). Its priced right and has the most built-in features I've ever seen in any printer in this class like the Ethernet 10/100 print-server. This is also probably one of the last b/w laser printers (in this price range) with AppleTalk support which is important to many of us diehard OS9 graphic designers (yes I know, we're almost extinct.)

Conclusion: If you need a Mac b/w laser printer, get this printer!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb Printer - But Lacks Some Paper Handling
This printer is outstanding for the money.I've had it for about 6 months now and it really works well.It duplex prints (2 sided printing) and the quality and feature set is everything I could ever want.

***But, the paper handling capabilities are not those of the HP printers, so if you want to print envelopes, this isn't the printer for you.If you print a gazillion pages of text and want a very fast, good quality, inexpensive printer, I can't say enough good things about this one.

I was so impressed with this printer, I bought a 5140 for my home.The 5140 differs in that it has no duplex or network interface, and no second paper tray, but it's still a good, fast printer at a great price.

3-0 out of 5 stars Printer won't mix and match legal and letter
My review is limited to print capabilities: I bought the 5170 and the extra tray for the sole purpose of printing mortgage documents which alternate between legal and letter paper. This machine will not perform this function automatically. I write this review because I wish I had known this. I know other printer's exist which will perform this function. Live and learn.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible Value!
This printer represents a remarkable value. It is well made, and it does everything as advertised.

Set-up is a breeze, and the documentation is put togeter well.

I still can't believe that I was able to purchase a network capable, automatic duplexing, PostScript compatible laser printer for this price.

Highly recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow, suprisingly good
We purchased this printer for a home office with both Macs and PCs.This printer has terrific Macintosh OSX support and is easily monitored/controlled using it's website interface (automatically appears in Safari's bookmarks toolbar if you turn on the Safari Rendezvous preference).This printer is very fast to warm up and prints the first page in about 10 seconds.I like that it is absolutely silent when in standby mode and wakes/sleeps on its own.My only problem is that I haven't yet determined if there's a better way to switching duplex printing on/off other than via the web control panel. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Plantronics is way over rated
I had this headset working for only 1 day before the mic on it broke and wouldn't input any audio. This is the second Plantronics headset that I've had that has broken quickly. I am not at all happy with this.

I bought instead the Logitech USB 300 model and although it seems to have worse reviews, I'm quite happy with it. The audio quality seems comparable and more importantly, it's still working. The Plantronics seems to me more fragile and prone to breaking.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing performance with Dragon Naturally Speaking
For those of you using or planning to use voice dictation programs this is your microphone.As a user of Dragon for over 10 years I've researched and examined numerous microphones.None compare with the performance of the DSP500. The recognition/performance of Dragon drastically increases.When using Plantronics I typically have several errors per paragraph; usually do to mispronounciation or accent.With competitors, I can encounter several errors per sentence.

Dragon has a program where it adjusts the volume of mic and tests noise to speech ration.According to ScanSoft anything between 20-24 is good.The DSP 500 comes in at a 27.

Any users of voice dictation software or those planning to use microphones for voice commands in games must try the DSP 500!


(The DSP 400 was rather good as well.I used this microphone for quite a long time. The portability was rather nice.Unfortunately the headset was a bitbig for my head.:-)

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Sound Playback/Recording - Not very practical !
Had this one for over a year for online gaming, dictating to a word document, listening to music etc..Overall I'm satisfied, althought for the money I think they could have done a much better job in every aspect. I only payed $65 online while it was $90 at the store. Had best reviews at the time, and indeed, it sounds almost as good as my $200 sony studio phones (when I play my stereo). drivers are stable and it sounds very good.

Digital Remote volume control is VERY handy! you'll love it.

BAD THINGS:

1. since it's basically a USB sound card, I have to keep flipping between DSP500 for games and my Audigy2 if I want to listen to music in the house .. maybe it's WinXP fault, I was able to use 2 sound cards at wonce under Win2000Pro. This gotten very annoying. Platronics tech support said that's the way it is!
2. Although construction is very solid, and the ear muffs are comphy, it's an UGLY LOOKING headset and is not snugg on my head. If I shake my head fast it'll fly off !

I wish they'd make the ear pieces much bigger for more noise canceling, hugging the whole ear and used 50mm magnets for greater base reproduction. Why is it always one or the other? Why can't americans learn to make practial things that also look good? :)

(...) I realized nobody sees me playing games at night so if I hang it under the desk it doesn't bother me much. If you don't care about the looks, THIS IS THE BEST HEADSET YOU CAN BUY FOR GAMING

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Product....Looking for more
These headphones worked great with my sound system. It could use a little more volume, but the bass boost on this is nice! I use this constantly for musical recordings with my friends & blending the recording with the instrumental makes the newly formed track almost 100% clear.

3-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!After using others I HIGHLY recommend these now.
3.21.04: First off, I will say that I am an on-line gamer and prefer the best when it comes to my electronics. I purchased the Plantronics 500 headset in March of 2003 and I'm now looking for a replacement. About a month ago, the audio from the left ear of the unit started to go in and out. I decided to dismantle the unit tonight after the left side finally quit on me and I found two places where the very thin wiring has almost completely frayed apart in the actual housing of the unit and where it connects into the headset itself. The sound and microphone on these is VERY good but I am disappointed that just after a year of pampering that they have given out (sorry, only a one year warranty on non-commercial items from Plantronics - which these are).

I also had a few small complaints about the inability to switch back to my computer speakers easily, or that the cord can really get in the way at times due to its long length.This may be good for some applications but the cord will stretch for a good 5 feet, alot more than I needed.They are very comfortable though and even after all night gaming, they still felt decent, unless I had my glasses on and then they can really start to hurt after an hour or two.In conclusion, if they would have lasted me at least another year, I would have rated them 4 or maybe even 5 stars but after only one year of use, I have them falling to 3 stars.

10.25.04:Well, I am back to buy another DSP-500 headset.I went through two different sets since I last purchased these and they do not compare to the sound quality of the DSP-500.I would have to give these an excellent rating when it comes to the sound/microphone/ease of use/etc... they just need to work on how long they last but I have been told by friends that I use them ALOT so an average user will easily get more time out of them than I did.A year for me was pretty good from what my friends say... so I am revising my review to give them "5 stars".This is an excellent headset and easily outperforms others in the $50 range. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Epson Stylus Pro 4000
The wait to get this printer was well worth it!I love the speed and quality of the prints.I not all that happy about how hard it is to find paper in the 17" x 22" or 17" roll sizes.The other thing was finding ink cartridges and the maintain tank replacements. These items seem to be out of stock just as much as the printer.There is a little bit of a learning curve but in the end the pictures are outstanding and worth every bit of the current problems in getting ink and the maintain tank.I was surprise by the size and it does need heavy duty desk or stand.But again it works great out of the box and better once you learn how to use all the settings.I suggest if you get this printer that you plan ahead in ordering extra ink and other maintain tank if you going to do a lot of printing.Everyone that has seen the pictures are very impress and I had one person wanting buy a picture I was just showing off.This is a great printer!! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Works Great!! No problems at all
When ever i buy products off amazon and ebay, i always look for what custombers say.. well i read what some of the people said, on here about how crappy the disk were, but i took a chance anyway, i've come to find out, the people that said these disc where faulty and crappy are totally wrong, i've backedup alot of media and important files on these disc, i've haven't had any bad burns. So I do think i will buy these again... I've had more bad burns with memorex brand than with any other dvd media.. But i do like these disc.. and the best part about it is, they're cheap!!.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very VeryBad
Never did a review before but I am compelled to write it for this.
'penny wise, pound foolish'. Tried to save 10 bucks by buying this, but wasted 10s of hours copying videos for backups. They write without any errors, but when I play them, they skip or hang like crazy. I tried them on 4 different DVD players; same issue with 90% of the DVDs
Stick with named brand and you won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Velocity DVD+R 4.7GB, 8x (100-pack Spindle)
The discs I got were PRODISC R03, Seem to burn good for me in an NEC drive. Seems i can use cheap media with no problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars I'm getting a lot of coasters. Won't use 4 anything serious.
These DVD's look great when all you're noticing is that they're $30 for 100 of them, but they fail frequently. Furthermore, they don't last as long. The individual who wrote the Buyer Beware review really knows what he's talking about:

You can't get something for nothing. Don't expect to buy cheap media and end up with flawless burns. I made the initial mistake of backing some important work onto these DVD's. Of course it wasn't my only copy, if it was I'd be rather furious, but it was still inconvenient to retrieve the data off tapes. If you have a high end burner, it will probably just spit these guys right out. That's what happened to me in the video studio when I tried to make a copy of my latest animation work. I hear stories of people actually damaging their DVD burner from these discs!

Also, the compatibility with DVD players is really sketchy. If you're doing burns with the intention of playing them on your DVD player, I would definitely recommend against this brand. Almost every video DVD I burned skipped in most DVD players or simply wouldn't play.

I wish I had read the reviews more carefully before wasting $30 on these DVD's. Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with my remaining DVD's. I may very well just throw them away. How is that saving money?

1-0 out of 5 stars This is the worst DVD Media I ever saw
This velocity DVD+R 8X is really a piece of junk! I would give it a zero star, if it is available.

My TOSHIBA burner has been pretty sturdy with other DVD media, yet it can only recognized this disc as 4X, and after the burning process completed, the DVD drive can not read anything, even if I change the DVD drive. I tried 4 discs, and the results are all the same. I felt lucky that my DVD burner is not broken, as a few other users experience.

Strongly suggest you do not buy this. I am going to return this tomorrow. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best investment made in a long time!
I've bought this projector with a free screen at Costco for only (...)and received a (...). The setup was a piece of cake. The projectors noise is very low, the picture quality is outstanding. The projector is hooked up to our Xbox and a stereo system. Watching movies on the Xbox works fantastic, so does playing games. No need to go to the movie theaters anymore. Playing games on the big screen makes you feel as if you are in the middle of the action. Especially recommended - Splinter Cell Chaos Theory!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for Led Zep Movies
The vid quality is great.Yea vid res isn't really high, but for the money you need to spend alot to get high res and get good color and frame rates.There are some projectors that offer higher res for under $2000, but they are typically not suited for movie use.If you going to do buisness presentaitons maybe go with another.Ifthe primary use is for home theater this is the way to go!!!!Although I did get this for buisness use and do presentaitons, it is somewhat weak in that use.


Oh yea... while your at it get the Led Zep DVD - looks great on this projector.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!
The picture quality rivals systems that I've seen costing thousands more.I carry the 4805 in a briefcase from my southern cal home to the home in northern cal.

I project onto the screen it came with, however in my norcal home I project right onto a wall the is approx.12' wide.

The wall is painted off white and has texture, however you can't see it.The picture is still crystal clear.

I am so hooked on the quality and ease of operation of this projector that I am buying a second one, so I can do a perminent installation.

Again!

A very happy consumer of the Infocus 4805

5-0 out of 5 stars Just purchased the SP4805 and Love It!
After a labor intensive literature search of tech-related website reviews of projectors, we settled on the SP 4805. After reading all the product reviews and comparisons, we narrowed our search down to only InFocus products -- the X1, SP 4800, and 4805. The X1a and X2 do not have the Faroudji processing, therefore eliminating them from our search (the X1a and X2 currently have manufacturers rebates, and without the special processing algorithms, I can see why they're on sale). The SP 4805 is a newer version of the X1 and SP4800; the SPs are "optimized" for home theater use versus business use.

If you're looking to buy near term, Costco has a deal right now where you can get the SP 4805 and a free screen (if I remember, it is a 72" screen) for $1224. This is the best price I've come across thus far. [...]

We paired the projector with a Yamaha receiver and Klipsch speaker system. We get an approx. 100" dia. image on our wall (you can set the projector to letterbox, 16:9, or 4:3) from about 15-20 ft away. I liked how easy the setup was and the companion instructions on use are straightforward. We hooked up our DVD player via component cables and the resolution is fantastic! (Of course, we had to test it with Lord of the Rings). If you're doing research on purchasing an overall home theater system without paying alot we were able to do it in under $2300 (projector, screen, speakers, receiver, and all cabling -- the cables are an additional cost that adds up).

I read alot about ghosting and other issues involving these type of projectors. I am not an expert in the subtle differences, though we do own an HDTV so I have become accustomed to the hi-res images. Given this caveat, I can say that the resolution and overall image quality is amazing. It is a true movie theater experience!

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent machine
We've had this projector for about a month now, having bought it unseen and untried based on high user ratings from another web site. Our viewing location is flooded with ambient light but this machine still throws a very discernable image even on the low-power setting.

With a distance of about 13 feet we get a 90-inch (diagonal) image (7 feet x 4 feet). We project on a panel of sheet rock painted white and have the projector sitting upside down on a board hinged to a wall just below the ceiling, supported by two pieces of chain to the front of the board. We're happy with the results using the supplied S-video cable.

If the remote is used to control the lamp, the fan always remains on, which is a bit annoying and my reason for only 4 stars. The low-power fan noise itself isn't bothersome during viewing. We have tried the high-power setting only briefly since we don't need it and it results in a noisier fan and decreases the life of the bulb.

The machine does produce some rainbow effect for people susceptible to it. We don't have experience judging the blackness of blacks or the whiteness of whites, nor some of the other technical aspects that videophiles might want to know about. We had an easy time hooking up an iBook to it though.

For the price of the machine and quality of the image we see, we feel this projector is a much better deal than a fixed-size TV of any sort. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars This Mouse WORKS with Macs
Please ignore any comments stated that this mouse will not work with Macs.I'm currently running 10.4.1 (Tiger... the latest OS for the Mac) and it is working fine.I have all 6 buttons (I know it says it's an 8 button mouse but 2 of them are for the dpi control) working with expose and dashboard.I ABSOLUTELY love the dpi on the fly.It's nice for sniping in FPS games and just having more control over the sensitivity on the fly.I highly recommend this mice for any Mac gamer.The ONLY thing that doesn't work with the Mac that comes in the box is the software.Other than that it's smooth sailing.Enjoy and have fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars Gaming mouse goodness
This mouse from Logitech is the best mouse for gaming I have ever used. The ability to change dpi on the fly is a great advantage for many games. Especially first person shooters. Very comfortable, easy setup. Highly recommend this product. Price I received from Amazon was less expensive than several sellers I found. Tim

5-0 out of 5 stars MX 518 Rules!
I have tested a lot of gaming mice over the years. I play FPS games and have been doing so for many years. Over the years have used Razer, Microsoft and Logitech. I have to say that this is the best mouse Logitech has ever produced for gaming. I love the feel of the button clicks, like the fact that you can change the sensitivity levels without any drivers. This seems to be a winner!

5-0 out of 5 stars Superior Gaming mouse and excellent mouse overall
I like this mouse a lot. With the right mouse pad (a Microthin Wow!Pad from Office Depot), this mouse glides beautifully, never seen one better. The main buttons are easy to push (only Microsoft does this right also). The forward and back side buttons are a little small but work fine. The scroll wheel is not as nice as the MS Intellimouse 4 as it still clicks and isharder to roll. Never used the tilt wheel on the MS mouse. It is gaming where this mouse shines. The mouse tracks no matter how fast I move the mouse. The mouse never sleeps so it always responds perfectly. Frankly, I have not yet found any use that I needed to change the mouse resolution (i.e. speed) but in trials that is easy to do.
Feel is good, middleto small sized so fits most of my family. Cord is thin and a little stiff so it does not always lay completely flat (I have not found on that did). Very lightweight. Contoured nicely to fit the cupped hand.
Worked with Win XP as soon as I plugged it in, drivers and program loaded with no hassle.
Nice job, Logitech!

1-0 out of 5 stars BEWARE: MX518 is not Mac compatible!!!
As a proud owner of the MX510 (which I love), I wanted to have the latest and greatest edition! I assumed that the MX518 would be Macintosh compatible, but alas it is not and I was sorely disappointed when I bought one! This is the first time I have heard of a Logitech mouse not working with the Mac. Message to Logitech: PLEASE FIX THIS so that Mac users like me can use the MX518! At the very least, PLEASE MARK THE BOX VERY CLEARLY THAT THIS IS NOT MACINTOSH COMPATIBLE. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Panorama Feature not supported.
If you are interested in Panorama feature which is available in many Olympus digital cameras..make sure you buy "Olympus xD card".
Do not buy Fujifilm or Lexar or other brand.
All Olympus Xd Card covers have BOLD letter stating "Supports Panorama". Make sure you check that before buying a xD-card.

5-0 out of 5 stars I like it
I have a Fuji A205 2M digital camera and this 128M card can contain about 200 1600X1200 pictures. It has been working well for a year. Its size is small compared to other cards (CF, SD...). The only not good thing is that xD card is more expensive.

5-0 out of 5 stars It works, these two words say it all
I have had this XD Picture Card for eight months and it's great. I just put mine in the camera eight months ago and have never taken it out since. When I have about 50 or 60 photos on the camera I just plug into my computer and download them and clear the card. It's as simple as that. The card is fast and speed and reliability do not seem to be affected by temperature or battery power. Just buy it, stick it in the camera and forget about it. You won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fujifilm 128 MB Picture Card
Whats the problem. You gotta have this card for the Fuji camera. It works great. Produces great pictures and at Amazon's price it can't be beat.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Deal for XD on Amazon
I priced Xd Cards in Ireland and was shocked (but not surprised) to find high prices for it. I went to Amazon and got it for $33 less (about €27) than the best deal in Ireland. I got my package exactly 1 week after I ordered it and the package arrived excellently packaged in official Fuji container. The XD Card increased my Fuji S7000 from a max of 10 6Mb pictures to about 88 max resolution pictures. Very happy ! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A GT4 Requirement....
Just my opinion...if you've been playing GT4 without it, you're going to have re-learn driving it. Steering feel is good, but I do have a few minor complaints. The brake and gas pedals do not have enough resistance -- it feels fake. Also, the shifter and the paddle shifters does not have enough "mechanical-resistance-precision". They are easy to double-click. The paddle shifters are located on the steering wheel, not steering column. You can be fumbling for the shifters during and/or after a turn. Finally, I wish there was a way to adjust the angle of the pedals. They seem way too upright for me making difficult to control gas and brake input (I place towel under mine).

So, in summary, it's not perfect, but there's nothing out there that comes close to it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A nice solid wheel

I'm a wheel newbie, but I liked the looks of this wheel when I saw it in a local retail store.It's very well made and solid, and includes gas/brake pedals and a +/- gearshift as well.The diameter of the wheel is a bit small, but it doesn't really detract from the experience.Besides, I've noticed Indycar wheels are small.

The wheel is a little hard to turn, feels like manual steering.But you get used to it quickly.I'd rather have some resistance instead of just a freely-spinning wheel anyway.The force feedback effects are great.In Grand Turismo 3 when your car is going close to it's limit, you can feel the car lose adhesion to the road and pull left and right irregularly.If you pop over a hill and go airbourne for a second you can realistically feel the wheel lose turning resistance.

Burnout 3 and Grand Turismo 3 are a BLAST with this wheel.

Here are my tips:

1.You must have a table or similar surface to mount it to.Something flat and around 2 or 3 inches thick and sturdy, I would guess.You cannot hold it in your lap.I've got mine mounted to a wooden chair turned sideways for now, not an ideal setup but still fun nonetheless.
2.Plug it in the top USB port on your PS2, otherwise some games will only want to use it for player 2.I don't think the picture "manual" tells you that.
3.This wheel also works on a Windows PC.Download drivers at http://www.wingmanteam.com/I'm not clear whether force feedback can/will work on a PC but I tried it in Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 with good results.I've heard you can get the 900 degree mode working in a PC but haven't got that far yet.
4.You'll need to plug in the wheel to a standard electric outlet, so plan for that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice
I bought this wheel a couple of months ago.I have to say that I really like it.I don't believe that it made me any better at gran turismo, but it makes a lot of the races more fun.I mostly enjoy using it when I'm confident that I'll win a race.It's also fun when I feel like I want to be "really into" the race.

The force feedback is great.The feel of the wheel is great.The pedals are a little close together and I wish the pedal base was a bit heavier, but no biggie.I tend to hold the base still with my left foot, while using it with my right.I love the fact that the controls are also on the wheel so I don't have to pick up my control pad for certain things.Overall, this has to be the best wheel on the market and great fun for the hardcore gamer.

4-0 out of 5 stars Nice wheel with unique multiturn feature
Being a gadget lover, I decided to upgrade my Logitech Formula Force GP wheel to the well-reviewed Driving Force Pro. The bottom line is that the DFP is indeed a big step up, with 900 degree steering support, additional side shifter and better feedback effects. It also feels more rugged, though it is still all plastic.

This wheel is marketed as a Playstation2 accessory, but it does work under Windows, and that is half the reason I bought it. Just install the Logitech drivers and plug it in, no special tricks required. Currently I don't know of any Windows games which support 900 degree steering, but hopefully we'll see some eventually. For now, the DFP is working great for Richard Burns Rally in 200 degree mode. It still provides better feel (and more buttons) than the good old FFGP. It's also great with Gran Turismo 4 and Need for Speed 2: Underground on the PS2, which both support 900 degree steering.

Unfortunately, the DFP still suffers from a mediocre clamping system--not that this is the only wheel to be so afflicted. The clamps don't open quite as wide as I would like either, which made it hard to attach to my desk. As others have recommended, I suggest a using a TV tray.

If you are in the market for your first wheel, this is a very good choice, especially if you want something that works for Windows and the PS2. If you already have a wheel you like, this would only be worth the upgrade if you are a real driving nut.

By the way, this would have been a 5-star review if the DFP had a clutch pedal.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very good.
I had borrowed a Logitech WingMan Formula Force GP from a friend to see if I like it. One week later I was looking for the best. I now have the Logitech Driving Force Pro. It is very nice. It feels better in your hand and all the controls that are on the controllers are there. The gear knob is place close to the wheel so that your hand can easily change the gear with out leaving the wheel. If you don't like that, you have the paddles under the wheel. The foot peddles are nice and the pad grips to the rug very good.

The only thing that I thing should have been done is to place a colour band around the top of the steering wheel. This allows you to check that your wheel is centre when wrapping with the 900 degrees turning during a rally. I sometimes get lost and have to look down to see which way it is pointing.

VERY VERY GOOD!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Defective Out of the Box
Obviously a lot of people love this printer when it works, but there appear to be significant quality issues at Brother.

I decided to take a chance and order one, but am now sorry I did.I followed the instructions for setup and during the ink cartridge initialization the printer stopped working and gave me an error message, stating that it could not complete initialization.After following the troubleshooting instructions in both the manual and online multiple times, nothing solved the problem.(Scarily, the primary explanation in the troubleshooting manual for this error message is simply that "there is a mechanical malfunction" with the machine.)This one's going back and I don't think I'll take my chances with Brother again.

Thank goodness Amazon makes returning defective product so easy.

1-0 out of 5 stars Brother Customer Service Horrible!!!
Unit displayed error messages after installing the ink cartridges. Called tech support in case I was doing something wrong. They confirmed unit was defective and offered to ship another one immediately and I could Fedex back the defective unit. It all sounded so easy and it was, however the unit I was shipped, appeared to be refurbished...it came in a plain cardboard box totally unlike a new one and there were no advertising stickers on the unit like a new one has. So did I pay full retail price for a refurbished unit? The second unit did work but after trying the scanner I was not impressed with the quality. I thought, "I need to get a unit with a better scanner". BIG PROBLEM!!!! BIG PROBLEM!!!!BIG PROBLEM!!! Retailer says, "They will not take back an item without the original packaging!!! I contacted Brother and explained my situation. I told them them this item is less than a week old but the retailer will not return it because Brother sent me what looks like a refurbished unit in a plain cardboard box. I told Brother that I would like to get another one of THEIR units which has a better scanner which is the same price. They said they won't do it!!! They only swap defective models for the same model number! Now think...Do you really want to purchase a product from a company like this? I'm going to take a hammer to this unit. Rest assured I will not buy another Brother product. They cost me $140.00!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buyer beware at all and every time. Do you want to be stuck with an item you don't want?

1-0 out of 5 stars Dead out of box.
Received a machine dead out of box. Twenty minute hold for customer service. Had I bought it anywhere but Amazon Brother would replace a "new" machine, never used with a refurb!!!!!!!
So, sounds like a good mahine but you'd be crazy to buy something like this anyplace but Amazon.I will return it to Amazon and get a NEW machine.Better luck next time!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Value

One of the best products for the money I have ever come across.

If you need a multifunction machine with network capability, this is it. Set-up was simple and problem free. Print quality is excellent. Scanning looks good and is easy to use. I have not used the Fax yet. I highly recommend the mfc-420cn. Buy it.

3-0 out of 5 stars be careful if just using as a fax/copier
I have owned this for 4 months and have been pleased thus far, until today. I only use it as a fax and copier. I have a seperate printer at my office so it is not even hoked up to my computer. Today I received the warning that my color cartridges are out of ink, so it totally shuts down. I cannot even send a fax. The problem is that I have never used color. I always copy in black and white, same with the fax. Apparently it cleans itself periodically like a cat and that uses a small amount of ink. It is rated for 400 pages of color, so 100 pages of ink a month just for cleaning seems excessive to me. It is frustrating to spend c.$40 for color even though I never plan on using it. Perhaps those were the sample cartridges that came with it and they did not have the same capacity as standard ones. Other than that, as a fax machine and flatbed copier, it works great. Good value and small size. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You are right and wrong 1 star folks
Okay,I agree with you,this system is sort of childish. But the what you call "childish games" are suppose to be fun for adults. Let me give you some examples.

Mario Kart: Double Dash!!: My mom loves this game!

Super Monkey Ball: Fun for all ages (and adults)

There's millions and millions of examples,too much.


Now that I've told you why you are wrong,let me tell why you are right. Okay,I goota admit,there is didly squat of rated M games,and Rated T games are like rated E. Overall,this system is great. I'd reccomend it. If you have have some extra cashola,buy the best system of the year,DS. Make sure to get SM64 DS as well.

P.S X-Box and PS2 sulks,I like Play Station better then the newies.

5-0 out of 5 stars the affordable gamecube
Today I finally purchased a gamecube from a local retailer on sale for just 97$ w/ a free game, Metroid Prime 2(50$ game currently). I figured I then only paid 47$ for the system itself adding in the bundle. (I really wanted the metroid 2 echoes game too) I chose the metallic "platinum" color over the ugly plain jane black one. For me nintendo has far too many kiddie games and just a couple I'd be interested in, but my wife and kid like all the kiddie stuff and I already own an XBOX & PS2 that have more games for the teen/adult gamer. The 3 systems will entertain our family until the hype ends over the upcoming "next-gen" systems (Revolution, 360, & PS3)and they have price drops into 100-150$ each and have 20$ games available as well. If you get a gamecube I'd suggest adding the 1019 memory card for it(30$) and also an S-Video cable from monster cable. I really like the compact size of the gamecube, but I don't really care for the akward styling of it's controller very much, the N64's controller was pretty weird too w/ it's "3rd leg". It's also nice to see nintendo finally using discs instead of old-school cartridges. I was considering a Nintendo DS, but I couldn't justify spending more for a portable system w/ less powerful graphics than a highly rated home console like the gamecube. Maybe the DS will have a price drop down to what the advantage costs now(80$). The PSP is way too overpriced for me to even consider it and it's weak battery life and fragile LCD are major drawbacks to me. Anyways I'm happy w/ my decision, the gamecube is a quality system and you can get a system and games cheap now.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best system
This is the best system currently out. It has all the classics and is more fun than the other systems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended.
Any fan of the Nintendo 64 needs this console to add more depth and knowlegde to their already large collection of games. I highly recommended a Gamecube for any fan. And soon the Gamecube Revolution will be released making another ultimate console due out in the future. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Tired of computer speakers that sound tinny and weak even when combined with a good sound card? Introducing the Klipsch ProMedia Ultra 2.0 system, which is designed to deliver deep bass performance from a compact two-speaker setup. The system features a pair of two-way magnetically shielded satellite speakers, each employing dual 2.5-inch fiber-composite cone drivers and a 1-inch metalized polymer tweeter with exclusive MicroTractrix horns. Combined, the drivers produce rich midrange tones, clear and efficient highs, and a satisfying bass punch for pure and total balance throughout the audio spectrum.

Listeners can control the main volume and bass level from a module on one of the satellite speakers, which also includes a headphone jack and auxiliary input jack for convenience. The system is versatile, too, connecting to more than just laptops and desktop computers, including such portable devices as Apple iPods, other MP3 players, mini-TVs, and portable CD and DVD players. Listeners can even feed a simultaneous laptop PC and MP3 signal to the speakers for mixed sound playback, making the system a great choice for both multimedia presentations and entertainment. The sleek satellites also feature floating grilles and undercone termination, which hides the voice coil leads for a cleaner look.

Whether you're setting up a kitchen system for your iPod or building a multimedia system for your office presentations, the ProMedia Ultra 2.0 delivers impressive, full-bodied sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well-balanced sound, especially good for classical music
I use these speakers in a small office to listen to news and classical music. The most impressive thing about them is their overall balance and clarity. Male voices are clear and completely free of upper-bass boominess. Classical music is accurately reproduced. As I type this, I am listening to Schubert's Trout Quintet. The double bass is clearly audible without distortion or undue emphasis in the upper range. The piano and strings come through naturally with low distortion. Other classical music also sounds great. Even harpsichord music is cleanly reproduced, with sparkling high frequency overtones. I listened to many other speakers, some costing several times more before deciding on these. All of the others were annoying in one way or another: many had exaggerated bass and some had piercing highs. These Klipsch would be a good bargain, even at a much higher price, if you're looking for clean, natural sound.

4-0 out of 5 stars An affordable speaker designed for accurate sound
Let's face it, most computer speakers are the pits. Most of these sub/sat system comprise of a low quality satellite speaker coupled with a tiny subwoofer with an emphasis on making one note boomy sounds. So now we have a boomy loose sounding sub, with a huge gap in the midrange tones.

So along comes Klipsch with this Ultra 2.0 system. Finally a speaker designed for best accuracy, not volume. A nice change among a whole bunch of mediocre 2.1 and 5.1 entries. The speaker itself is tall and deep, but not too wide, most people won't find it overbearing on their desks. This speaker uses a horn loaded tweeter, and two metallic 2.5 bass/mid drivers. Suffice it to say that you won't be rocking the house with bass with these tiny drivers, but what does come out is pretty even and clean. Just enough that you can hear the bass instead of saying "where's the bass?", and the rest of the sound is quite flat. Klipsch themselves say the frequency response is plus or minus 5 decibels, which is a rare spec among computer speakers. I measured the frequency response and I found that the response started to roll off below 100 Hz, with a hump at 130Hz, but in all, the frequency response is considerably flatter than any of the other speakers you'll find in this price range. I'm satisfied with the bass for the most part keeping in mind the size of the speakers.

The sound is crisp and lively. You can hear all the details, and vocals are nicely voiced, even in tone with good presence. The bass is somewhat limited, but what's there is pretty tight sounding, and not overemphasized just to make a quick sale at the in-store demo. These little speakers are good enough that one can enjoy them even if you are used to much better sound from a home system.

Even though these speakers aren't cheap compared to many other offerings. I'll still give them four stars. Actually a rating of five isn't out of line, but I only give five stars when I know that *everybody* will like them. To get better, you could always buy some real home audio bookshelf speakers, and an amplifier, but then you've spent a lot more. If you don't want to go through that much trouble, these are really a good compromise between most of the junky satellite systems, and a full home setup.

4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good speakers
First let me say that my computer 2002 Sony Vaio laptop with a generic sound card in it so maybe I can't give these speakers a fair test. I was expecting a lot more from these speakers 'cause of all the great reviews I saw here, and all the talk about "rich bass sound" for me these speakers sound great at low to med volume , but even at med. the bass starts to distort, listening to classical and pop. So I guess that for $99.00 they are about as good as you can get for a 2.0 speaker sys..So until I dish out $125 bucks for an Audigy sound card to plug into the PCMCIA slot on my laptop maybe then I can get the better sound I am looking for.I other words if you have a newer computer with a good quality sound card in it you will no doubt get better sound than I did.-Scott

5-0 out of 5 stars great & booming sound from a 2.0 system
We all know the first pair of speakers we got for our computers.Probably paid $20 for two satellites and that's it (unless you're an audiophile -- if that's the case you're probably not reading this in the first place).

The sound was tinny and it didn't take much to blast out the cones.What did you expect from a $20 investment?

Well, these aren't your grandpa's cheapo speakers -- just look at the price.Given, you can probably get a decent 5.1 system (no THX, no Dolby) for $99, but you're probably looking for something a little more portable; maybe you've got a laptop, maybe you just hate those powered subwoofers.Well, let me tell you the sound from the ProMedia Ultra 2.0s is INCREDIBLE [for a 2.0 system].I think we all need to realize the limits of 2.0 systems, since they are all-in-one boxes (subs, midrange, tweeters), but Klipsch stays true to its history and has produced some of the best sounding 2.0 computer boxes I've ever heard.The lows are surprisingly low and the highs are crisp.My favorite thing is that you can turn the master volume on the computer up and still crank up the volume on the speakers -- these things will get VERY loud and can easily drown a bedroom with loud music!And it's not just loud, but it's high quality sound -- as long as you keep the audio source's volume lower than the speaker volume (a general rule), you'll be hard pressed to hear distortion.

The bass can be overwhelming -- sometimes you've got to fiddle around with it, especially if you've got the EQ going on with whatever audio player you use for your computer.I'm used to just jacking the bass all the way up on 2.0 systems, but in this regard the ProMedias really are comparable to a x.1 system in that the bass is true to a powered amplifier.Not as strong, but it reacts in the same way.

3-0 out of 5 stars Good - but don't kid your self
I read the reviews.I was looking for a really good 2 speaker setup.The family room computer is above my bedroom and the idea of a sub woofer on the floor did not seem like a good one.While I would say that these are good computer speakers, don't fool yourself into thinking that these will substitute for a good stereo.The quality of a $300 mointor size stereo speaker attached to an amp are light years ahead of these speakers.

Some commented on their size. I did not find them overly big placed on either side of our 17" LCD.I don't regret buying them, but I have to admit I was hoping for more based on some of extravegant praise this speaker has recieved.Yeah - I know, there "only" $99. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb economy laser printer
My present inkjet printer is great for small jobs and color printing, but it lacks the speed that I need when printing lots of text. I printed a 265 page document, (which took about 40 minutes) and went to the copy center to make three more. When they told me how much it would cost, I realized that for the price of three copies, I could just go and buy my own personal laser printer. I did some comparative shopping and ended up with the economy minded Samsung ML 1740 laser printer. Here are my first impressions (no pun intended) of this printer.

The unit comes packaged with toner, the printer itself, manuals, CD installation disk, power cord, but no USB cable. You'll have to provide that yourself. The printer is a very compact unit and is about the size of a small microwave oven. The whole body of the printer is made of plastic, rather fragile looking, but nice.Setup took less than twenty minutes and is simple as falling off a long. After installing the necessary software, and connecting the USB cable from the printer to my computer, I printed out a test page which was very sharp and clear. The printer is easy to load with paper and has a 250 page capacity. Very nice. Paper exit trays are from the top of the printer or from the rear exit. You can choose which exit the paper comes out of. Generally speaking, the top exit is good for general printing, and the rear exit is for printing envelopes or thicker paper stock. The rear paper exit is 'straight through' compared to the top exit which makes the paper do a 'U-turn' before coming out.

The printer is very user friendly and has great software.(Note: From reports, this printer does not seem to work with Macs.) I was able to print up that 265 page document without a hitch. There is a toner saver button on the top of the printer. When this button is activated, the printer only uses 40% of the toner, which extends the life of the cartridge. Since I was only printing out text, the difference between full mode and toner saver mode was not important. The full toner mode looks richer and darker, but the saver mode was quite acceptalbe in quality. After finishing, I needed to print up a 225 page manual for my digital camera. I was able to print up four images to a page with the Samsung printer software, and shrunk the entire manual down to just 57 pages. There were quite a few photos and halftone illustrations in the manual. These turned out very good, even in the save toner mode. The dpi (dots per inch) is 600dpi or 300dpi for this printer. I found that 600dpi is just fine for text. The characters and letters were very sharp with no 'jaggies'. This little unit produces quite a bit of heat, so the ML-1740 has a powerful fan to keep the printer cool. I didn't find the fan noise distracting or irritating. The printer cartridge will give you about 1,000 printed pages in regular mode and about 60% more in toner saver mode. The cartridge that comes with this printer is a 'starter' cartridge, which means it is not completely filled with the standard amount of toner. Though there have been some gripes about this, it is easy enough to refill the spent cartridge with a refill kit at a fraction of the cost in buying a new one.

This printer is an excellent value because of the rebate programs associated with this device. Consider the Samsung 1740 if you are on a budget and want an easy to operate, efficient, 'bare-bones' laser printer. Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great step up from InkJet
I bought this printer about 2 months ago to replace a dead canon i850 and have been extremely happy.Initially I had a standard parallel cable connecting it to my computer and the first page out time was roughly 8 seconds.When I found a spare USB cable in my closet, first page out went down to almost 5 seconds and general print speed increased.

It's fast and spits out great quality prints.I've compared it to the output of a much more expensive HP Laserjet 8000 and it is as good or better.

The only downside is that I'd like to do duplex printing, but then again I don't know of a laser in this price range (sub $200) that can.

I figured my long term ownership costs (paper and toner) to come in around 2.7 cents a page compared to an inkjet with per page costs somewhere around 9 to 20 cents each.Also, it has a published life cycle of around 60,000 pages before needing a tune up.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great buy
Laser printers offer low operating costs and crisp clear copies. The Samsung ML-1740 will not disappoint you in terms of copy quality or operating cost. Toner replacement cartridges offer thousands of copies rather than the hundreds (if you are lucky)you get out off an inkjet. A toner saver mode ads to the operating cost savings.

Other features include a 250 sheet paper tray, USB connectivity and true Plug and Play capability. This printer took 5 minutes out of the box to set up and start printing.

The unit is reasonably priced at the low end of comparable laser printers. This is but own component of the great value this printer represents.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bad luck or bad printer? You decide
This is only the second review I have ever left at Amazon, but I thought our experience might possibly help other people make an informed decision.

We bought a Samsung ML1740 from a company other than Amazon. We chose it mainly because it was such a good price--about $88, quite a bit cheaper than the HP LaserJet 1012. It also had some nice features, particularly the large lock-in paper tray.

We set it all up and printed a page and it seemed quite a snazzy little printer. It wasn't until later that I realized the page had printed off center by over 1/8 of an inch. In other words, quite noticeably.

I called Samsung and told the CS person my problem. He suggested that I change the margins. I assumed he meant that there was a magical way to change the margin settings within the printer software. But no, it turned out he was suggesting I change the margins within the word-processing program for every single document I printed! He said that's just how this printer is and that the one he had on his end printed off center as well, albeit not as drastically. Apparently the print head is stuck in there a certain way and there's no way to recalibrate it. Overall, he gave the impression that he thought I was unrealistic and overdemanding to expect this printer to center the print job on the page. He did admit, however, that he had received other calls on this issue.

Well, I was pretty steamed about this at first, but when I cooled off I decided to give the 1740 another chance. The price was so good! So we drove significantly out of our way to another version of the company where we got the first one (the original store was out of stock). Got home, set it up, turned it on. It started warming up, kept warming up, kept warming up, and after a while it started to smell kind of hot and dangerous, and still it kept warming up...

Our first 1740 had a loud warm-up period of about 10 seconds or so. This one never printed one page due to its apparently permanent warm-up phase. Fearing it might explode, and considering that this might possibly be a sign that the 1740 was not the printer for us, I boxed the second one up and exchanged it for the HP LaserJet 1012.

The 1012 has worked perfectly from page one, has no obnoxious warm-up noise, and, aside from a rather strange software setup, has given us exactly zero problems to date. The printer it replaced was an HP 5L, which worked great for over 10 years with very few and minor problems. I should have known better than to let the allure of a low price cause me to ignore a product with a proven record.

This was my first Samsung product and so far I am not impressed, not just with the quality of the product but also with the peculiar attitude of at least one of their CS reps. Will I buy Samsung in the future? I haven't decided, but right now it doesn't look good.

2-0 out of 5 stars Text quality looks like 300 DPI only
Pro: Cheap and small
Con:
1. come with 25% toner only, after you print out around 200 pages, you need to buy a new toner, which is almost same price of this printer. refill toner if you can, buy toner refill kit from ebay, only cost you $10.
2. noise level is hight when printing.
3. 1200 DPI text quality looks like 300 DPI. HP has the best text quality.

After I dump this print, I purchase a brother 14XX laster, same price, 100% toner, better print out quality, but a little bit bigger in footprint. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT COMFORTABLE
In general I am okay with this headset, I am using it with a TREO 650 which lends itself to other issues, the headset is not advanced enough to work automatically with the treo.My main complaint is it is not adjustable to my ear.I actually have to use the big ear gel to get it to stay on because the part that goes over your hear is about 1 cm too high over my ear, so the big ear gel holds it up....It fits my husband perfectly, so maybe it is that I have smaller ears, it just seems to me that there should be a better way to make it fit.

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally happy
I have been using this device for two months, and have been generally happy with it - the audio fidelity is good, the unit is comfortable, the battery life is long and, although I haven't tested the maximum range, I usually use it at 10 to 12 feet from the phone (Nokia 6820).My house is in a marginal reception area for Cingular, and using the headset allows me to put the phone in a "sweet spot" with an unusual orientation, giving me three or four bars instead of one.

The "belt clip" is a joke.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good Bluetooth handsfree kit, but with a few problems
The FreeSpeak is no doubt a reasonably good performer. The sound on it is reasonably clear and the microphone does a good job too. My only complaint on it is that once I paired mine and turn the kit on, my PDA (a Sony Clie PEG-UX50) would no longer be able to connect to the phone (a SonyEricsson T610) via bluetooth unless the kit is switched back off. Could be a flaw with either the phone's design and/or the Bluetooth specification (I never really did test it with a different phone to verify the problem), but since I am able to receive calls while my PDA is connected to the internet (I have GPRS enabled on my line), it would be nice to be able to answer a call without either talking on my phone or taking the PDA offline. Still, a good starter kit if you don't have any other Bluetooth device paired with your phone.

Update: Well, I've managed to get a Motorola V600 and tried the same headset on it, and the same problem persists- you can't connect other Bluetooth devices to the phone while the headset is connected. I am now also fairly certain that the problem is with Bluetooth's specifications as I was unable to exchange pictures between the phones while the PDA was accessing one of the phones. So, okay. No fault of the phones, PDA or the headset. Just the way Bluetooth works in general.

3-0 out of 5 stars Poor belt clip design
I don't have much to say about the 250 other than to point out the really poor design of the belt clip/charger. The 250 is supposed to click into this holder (which connects to the power adaptor for charging). This holder is designed to clip onto your belt so that you can carry the 250 when is is not in use. Okay, I agree that you will look extremely nerdy if you have your phone AND your earpiece hanging from your belt but sometimes you need to put the things away and the Freespeak 250 is really too fragile to carry in your pocket. The only problem with this is that the 250 will easily fall out of the holder and if you use it you WILL lose it. It is only a matter of time. My 250 lasted about 45 seconds and when I went to get it from the belt clip it was GONE. Not the holder but the 250 itself. Some lucky stiff at the Houston airport picked it up and walked away.

I also thought that the 250 was not well made. When I would push the on/off or volume buttons I could feel the housing "give" a little, as if the buttons were about to collapse into the housing. A little too flimsy and not indication of a long life expectancy for the earpiece.

I suggest that you consider another alternative - at $90 the 250 is simply overpriced.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Ready for Prime Time
I have used this headset with my Treo 650 and have been very disapointed with it's performance. It may be a function of the Treo's Bluetooth capabilities so keep that in mind and do not waste your money on this headset if you are using a Treo.

It has very poor range; arm's length at best. Outdoors it is useless. It has times when it will refuse to pick up a call. The voice quality is also poor with hissing and crackling. The only place it seems to be remotely useful is in the car where it is within arm's reach and the hissing is only moderate. This is pretty expensive to only be able to use part of the time. Talk time is also much shorter than advertised.

My $.02, save your money for something else.

Update: Recently purchased the new Treo 650 headset by PalmOne. That is the new Bluetooth 1.2 version, not the clone of this Jabra. Much, much better. Now I have a headset that I can use all the time. I have completely replaced all my wired headsets. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars excellent drive
No prob with it for the past 3 months. I would recommend it to anybody who needs a cheap 1GB portable drive!

3-0 out of 5 stars Very decent product, poor cap design
The keychain portion of my thumbdrive broke completely off after a mere 4 weeks of carrying it around on my keychain.There are other thumbdrives that have much sturdier cap designs, so if you are planning on attaching this to your keychain, you may consider shopping around some more and paying close attention to ergonomics.

Aside from the brittle cap loop, the drive works great and i'm happy with its performance.

3-0 out of 5 stars This is OK but you can do better.
The 1GB storage is nice but watch the ads because you should be able to get a SanDisk or maybe even a Lexar for between $55 and $65. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, this is not as fast as other thumb drives. Another drawback is the shape. Some machines have recessed and/or side by side USB ports, particularly in the front. Because the recessed areas are usually narrow, and close together, this series of USB thumb drive does not plug in unless you have a USB patch cable which makes one more thing for you to carry around.For these reasons I like my SanDisk Cruzer mini better and can only rate the Memorex as OK. Another note, if you have SD, CF, or other digital media cards, you might consider getting a mini card reader. (They run between $10 and $20 depending on the media and manufacturer) They are similar in size to some of the larger thumb drives and do have a USB patch cord but you can then use your digital media just like a thumb drive. Not to mention you can keep adding capacity with additional Digital media cards. P.S. Swimming is not a recommended activity with any electronic device ;-), someone's lucky they didn't fry their motherboard.

2-0 out of 5 stars NOTE TO SELF...
Just a warning to other potential purchasers - this product is NOT water-proof.I went swimming with my Flash Drive and to my surprise, it shorted out - now I can't get it to work!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great little thumb drive!
I've had This Memorex thumb drive for quite awhile now and as a "non-traditional student" back in college I find it invaluable and wonder how I ever got away without having one when I went through college for my first degree. I've mistakenly tromped on it, dropped it in my cereal bowl, and got in the shower once before noticing it was still around my kneck.It's a very sturdy drive. I would say that a very picky person could complain that it's an ity bit too wide to fit well in the USB slots behind SOME of the older computers becuase of where the rest of the computers wiring inserts.Fix that with an extension cable, who wants to be messing around behind their computer every time they want to insert their thumb drive anyway? ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great product.
This is a great product and comes in very handy with large cd/dvd collections.I have my video games, dvd's and cd's with booklets all in this case and so far none of them have scratched.

The pages are very easy to take out and they are very easy to put back in, doesn't cause any stress or frustration.

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good CD holder
I really enjoy this product. Some people say that it scratches their disks but it hasn't scratched one of mine yet. This CD wallet is good for taking on the road. I take it everywhere I go. This is a very sturdy product. It has very good value. I would recommend this product to anyone that is looking for a good and low cost CD case for their CD collection.

5-0 out of 5 stars My favorite CD/DVD Case
I've gone through a few cases to hold discs but stopped searching when I bought the 128 capacity one about 8 mo. ago.Now I can hold all my DVD's (who uses CD's anymore)...This is the best option you can go for and its relatively cheap on amazon.com.
Pro: Sturdy steel zipper,Strong oustside Nylon Case, CD's do not come out of the pocket, Each sleeve is secure and I feel confident they're not going to rip.
Con: The only thing I don't like about this is how hard it is to insert new sleeves.It's not like a three ring binder where you can insert sleeves where ever you please.If you want to insert one in the back of the book, you have to remove all the other ones.

Anyway, buy this DVD/CD? Wallet.. you won't be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars No more hunting for CD-ROMs
I got this to store my CD-ROMs in after one too many irritating searches for a CD to reinstall something.I was hoping it would have metal binders like my MSDN CD wallet, but they're flat and plastic instead.But it seems like fairly sturdy plastic.The binders can be opened pretty easily, which means you can remove and sort the pages.I found it easier to put the CD-ROMs in initially by removing all the sleeves first.You get eight CDs per page, four on each side.

As others have said, this thing is enormous.Lay out four CD cases, 2 by 2, and that's about how big it is, and at least three inches thick.So be sure that you want one that large.It seems pretty sturdy, but I have to concur with what others have said about the zipper.It slides around easily once you get it going, but it's hard to get going; it gets sort of stuck and you have to wiggle it a bit to get it to move.I suspect that if you're not careful to make sure it's all the way unzipped before you open the case, it'll start to weaken.

By the way, if you're using it to store CD-ROMs, don't forget to get the keycodes off the CD cases/sleeves before you pitch them!Better yet, don't pitch them; enter the CD keys in a program where you can look them up, and then stick the original cases in a box somewhere as backup.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pro-Junk - Sleeves scratches CD/DVD coating.
Pro-Junk should be more like it. The Pro-Sleeve damaged my Season 1 DVD of the X-Files with careful insertion and removal. WARNING AND CAUTION to those who buy this, try it in a retail store first with a blank CD-R/DVD-R and judge for yourself.

Your better off storing your CD/DVD's in Dupont Tyvek Sleeves (with no flaps that could cause abrasion.) ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Good for certain speed writers but no the faster...
I've bought several packs of the Memorex CD-R's and they all worked great until I got a new computer with a faster CD-RW (48X).The CDs worked great with the slower writer on my older computer, but with the faster writer there is either some user error...or in the off chance that it actually burns it sounds like there is a strong wind in the background...very annoying.For someone with a 16x CD-RW I would recommend these...but not someone one with a higher write speed.

1-0 out of 5 stars brand new spindle had flaked cds when I opened it
I opened a brand new spindle and there was a brand new, shrink-wrapped cd right on top with missing surfacing that flaked off. This is not the same quality memorex surface they used to have with the white writing surface. I'm going back to fujifilm cd-rs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great CD's for everyday use
These are very good CD's to use everyday.I usually burn 10 CD's a week and I haven't had a coaster once.I only burned songs onto them and they work fine.If you want CD's that you can use everyday with great quality,then buy these cuz these are great!Trust Me!!!

As a professional audio engineer, I use Memorex-brand CD-Rs for all of my personal audio and data projects.They're even good enough for entry-level professional mastering.While not the same caliber as a gold studio master (2-3x the price), they easily exceed any kind of standard a consumer or prosumer might be looking for.I've used about 800 or so in the past year without any problems.I think most of the problems the reviews are showing is either user error or bad recording equipment--I've never had problems.

1-0 out of 5 stars Try another brand
have rarely had problems recording music or mixed media data on to a disk. However, the 100 pack of Memorex CD-R I bought have made me think twice about ever buying their brand again. I use a Lite ON 40x CD-RW and most of the problems I have had in the past were a result of user error: recording at high speed, using other applications whilst recording data etc. Yet, it seems several CDs in the spindle I bought were corrupt. It took me about 10 CDs and several emails & calls to their customer service dept. to figure out their media was to blame. My firmware was up-to-date and I've never had compatibility problems before. After discussing this issue w/ friends, Memorex appears to have compatibility problems w/ some audio & recording components. The worst part about this problems is that I cannot get my money back either. My advice is to steer clear of Memorex and spend the extra few pounds on a TDK or Maxell CD-R

4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent product but installation may make you annoyed
I'm an extremely experienced computer user and I had issues with installation, even by following the instructions. Eventually, I ended up resolving my own problems after about five hours of time. Specifically: The "step by step" instructions were fine, until the next step "click next" didn't apply anymore. The installer was freezing, and if I allowed Blue Screens, was clearly crashing. I have a number of USB devices and spent hours trying different configurations, none of which helped. I downloaded the updates online and installed those, which continued to be problematic with not much offered in support in help, documentation, or by phone (banker hours, long distance support) and I dreaded trying to get this done by e-mail. Through sheer persistence I resolved whatever my conflict was, which was clearly as USB conflict, but the consumer should expect the same. It's no joy of life to debug this, I'd dread what your Aunt Lila would go through trying to sort this if she received this as a birthday gift.

That said, the product is fantastic once it gets going. I am more than pleased with the copying ability, and for my purposes the photo quality is more than acceptable.

Users which claim Epson printers have a low life expectancy are correct, but I usually plan on replacing them every two years anyway. It's par for the course. At the market price for this all in one, if you get a year out of it you've done well. Make sure you use it atleast once a week to keep the jet tubes cleared and you'll be better off.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great overall value
I purchased this printer to replace an HP Laserjet Multifunction unit.Overall I am very satisfied with this model.I was initially looking for a simply a new inkjet printer, but purchased this due to the low cost.Consider this model when comparison shopping.

PROS:
- Fast print speeds, excellent print and scan quality
- Flatbed scanning and copying; scanner cover can be removed to accommodate a book or larger item to scan or copy
- Photo-quality borderless prints - looks like a postcard
- Unlike HP, Epson has separate ink tanks for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black, so only replace when needed
- Card reader allows printing from card, AND can transfer images to your computer using USB 2.0 (elimilates need to waste camera battery)
- Can copy or print from memory card without a PC
- 150 sheet input tray

CONS:
- A bit noisy when feeding in paper, but this is typical of any inkjet
- When one cartridge is out of ink, you cannot print without replacing it

2-0 out of 5 stars Clogged printer heads can't be cleaned, Dont purchase
Loved my Epson All-In-One printer until it just went over its year waranty.Then the printer would not print even though the ink cartridges were 70% full of ink. The Epson troubleshooting guide said to replace cartridge with new ones when cleaning the printer heads mutiple times didn't work. I wasted money buying 4 Epson replacement cartridges and still not getting the printer to print.Gave 2 ** since the scanner still works.Fortunately I have a backup HP printer.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great All in One Device
Great Speed, quality color and b/w prints at low cartridge cost. You can print, copy and csan documents/pictures, and even Fax with any software fax utility like MS Word Fax.

1-0 out of 5 stars Stay away from Epson, especially the CX line!
About a year and a half ago I purchased my CX5200 to replace a nine year old Epson Stylus printer. I don't print that often and was getting down to the end of my second set of replacement cartridges when the ink on the paper started to smear. I tried a few head cleanings, but the problem persisted. Next I replaced the black cartridge and, SURPRISE, no more black. I then replaced magenta...no more magenta. I did some research and found that all the Epson printers get clogged jets after a period of time. I bought the Epson cleaning solution and tried that. Now pretty much nothing works. I can't wait for all these five star reviewers to come back in a year. I will never buy another Epson printer again since this problem seems to be huge with their printers.

My advice to anyone, stay away from any Epson product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Don't take it too deep
I recently used this housing in Bonaire and got some decent shots, though nothing that would come close to photos taken by a real underwater camera. The best shots can usually be had at shallower depths where the colors are more brilliant and less filtered. Also, on my last dive where my max depth was 55 feet and the temp was 79 degrees, the lense on the case fogged up when I returned to shallower depths (around 20 ft.). There was no damage to the camera, but I lost some great shots during the last 10 minutes of the dive.

Lastly, be aware that although users are advised to not open and close the case more than necessary, you will need to do so to change out and recharge the battery and/or memory card. I suggest using a 512MB or even a 1GB card, since they won't fill up as quickly and you won't drain the battery by reviewing and deleting the pics you don't.

5-0 out of 5 stars Followed directions.Worked.No Leaks.
My wife and I both got one each and took them on 4 different snorkeling excursions while on a cruise.They worked well.The deepest I took mine was around 12 ft.My only complaint might be that the viewscreen can be tough to make out underwater sometimes but that is no fault of the case.Sometimes the fish just blend in to the background so it is hard to tell if you are lined up for the shot or not on the little screen.I just took lots of pictures to be safe. :)Using auto color correction in a photo editor really helps bring out colors in a lot of shots when they have that blue underwater hue.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great for a non-diver
This is a great item to buy if you have one of the Canon Powershot cameras that fit this case. It is easy to load and and all of the buttons line up. So, all of the camera functions are still usable. The one trick to use it though under water is using the screen to compose your picture rather than a view finder. I was not wearing a mask, so I had to guess on my shots.

Instead of just pool shots of my kids, I plan on taking underwater pictures of the fish I catch this summer. I also plan on having my wife use the case when she goes to the beach. So, a shovel full of sand or a splash of salwater will not be a problem. I am not a diver, so I can't make a recommendation on this item for that specific use.

There is a trick to loading the camera into the case, but Canon's directions are simple and informative. So, despite the rather high price, anyone that has one of these cameras and would like to use it around water should have one of these cases.

1-0 out of 5 stars Mine leaked and ruined my camera
After using the case on about 5 dives over the course of 11 months, it leaked.I read the instructions, followed all of the instructions carefully and it still leaked.And now my camera is ruined.I certainly learned my lesson and next time I will buy a specific underwater camera (but first I have to replace my digital camera that got ruined).

5-0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised
Not much to say about this.It promises to keep the camera dry underwater, and has worked as advertised for me on several occassions.

Note: READ THE DIRECTIONS!!!The most important things to remember when using any underwater camera housing are

1) prepare the housing in a cool, air conditioned area,

2) make very sure that the rubber seal and surrounding area are free of hairs, sand, etc.,

3) DO NOT repeatedly open and close the housing after it has been prepared, and before you dive (snorkel, whatever).

Just be mindful of what you're doing, use some common sense, and this will work great. ... Read more
