5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent pictures at a bargain price!, July 23, 2014
This is a really nice system for the money. It's pocket ready and takes amazing pictures, even from a moving car and train. in addition the battery life is quite amazing. Great zoom, and quick to snap a picture. Bring along a tripod or mono-pod and you are good to go for some fantastic vacation pictures. Will not break the bank and makes the most of a really nice 16 Megapixel compact camera.

Very durable and great for kids first camera and at under $60.00 it's a steal!

5.0 out of 5 stars High praises for a 12 Mp 30X Zoom Canon!, July 23, 2014
This camera offers many options that are not offered on simialr systems.

You get WiFi, 30x optical zoom, and easy camera to computer connectivity to get those precious moments off the camera and onto the web. Simply download the software needed from Canon and you are off and running. There is a bit of noise in low light but not such much, and it's markedly better than other cameras of the same build and price range. It's alos light weight and very intuitive to use and setup. It does have a Canon battery so you will need to remember to keep charging it up and not replacing "AA's".

It takes a great 12 megapixel image for the price and size and will perform well as a backup to larger, heavier SLR's. It's not the ultimate Cadillac of cameras but certainly a really nicely loaded mid-range system that is backed by Canons legendary build and design.

Highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Good basics with upgrade possibilities., July 23, 2014
This system has been around for a year but still hangs in there at a solid 4 stars. Here are my Pros and Cons:

Pros:

Quiet
Free plentiful apps
Not as hot as others on the market
Excellent keyboard feel
HD Screen
Sweet Trackpad
Can access Google cloud
Good quality camera
Memory card reader
3 USB 2.0 ports

Cons:

Low battery life
Needs to be on internet to have full access to capabilities
Sound is a bit weak
2 GB Ram

This is another great option for a basic system that will be perfect for those needing access in high school and first year freshmen. You can upgrade if needed through some basic DIY electronic knowledge with RAM and such but I'd suggest simply upgrading to a higher powered system if needed and and pass this down the chain of command.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong here - Excellent System, July 23, 2014
Very tight system, lets discuss the pros and cons right off the bat.

Pros

Inexpensive
Excellent graphics with bright screen
High quality sound
Very modern design with moderate weight
Windows 8.1
Very good battery life
Excellent Video player and movie playback
Multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive
1 USB 3.0 and 2 USB 2.0

Cons
No Microsoft Office installed
Not a portable gaming system

It's been a really nice system with extended capabilities to serve high school students of beginning college freshmen when they need a good basic system with an optical drive that wont break the bank. High quality and goes the distance, just wish it had Office installed to turn on instead of having to start from scratch.

I highly recommend this unit as a fill in or back up for more expensive high powered systems. Toshiba has done their homework and brought forth a nice basic system offered with a few select upgrades

4.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Basics!, July 23, 2014
This is a fully functional laptop at under $300.00. The price is realized since there is no optical drive, touch screen, Bluetooth or wired Ethernet, but at this price that's OK. You can use an external drive and WiFi for your connection needs.

Even with the plastic feel it's been quite durable and easy to care for with storage in a case when not in use. I also like to use a trackball instead of mouse or touch-pad, but the touch-pad is OK if you decide not go that route. It is a fully functional system with a bright easy to read screen, that is perfect for web browsing, checking email, watching movies download to the hard drive and has fired right up even after sitting in my hot car for most of the day.

It is a bit sluggish with high performance software and that's the only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Overall, a really great system and one that will serve you well. I suggest this a starter system for middle school age children that have the discipline to care for such items but don't need the high power and extras of a more expensive system.

Outstanding value!

5.0 out of 5 stars High power, low profile - most excellent!, July 23, 2014
This unit looks very similar in shape and design on the Anker products, but comes with an on and off button. It came with a charge but I charged up anyway in a short time and it was easily ready to go in a few hours. It has charged my iPad Air completely once and still had juice to charge the iPhone 5 completely from 40%. With 10,000 mAh you have the power you need. It has 2 output ports for charging both 1A and 2.1 A at the same time, the first for phones the second for tablets.

I loved the way the device was packaged, as I work with food every day, the whimsical icons were pretty cool to see. It's a very high quality item and has a good feel and design that really makes it a nice powerfully small package!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crank up the Power!, July 21, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This unit is more than I expected and I am getting another since the first works so well. Its a self contained power house offer both solar and hand cranking to meet the needs of emergency situations.

"The WR-099 sets itself apart from other crank chargers - you can fully charge the WR-099 through the USB/AC/DC adapter, and when you need it, charge the cell phone/MP3/MP4/USB with no cranking. Other crank chargers require continuous hand cranking to charge a device."

That aspect alone, being able to charge without constant cranking is excellent. I do have issues with my iPhone 5 in that it's not recognized it at times and when it does it's not always on for a long time.

Cons:

Cranky crank, moves around a lot.
No indicator on how much power is in the battery.
Solar not as effective as I thought it would be, even on bright days.
Issues charging smartphone, my old flip phone - no problem

Pros:
Very bright flashlight that lasted all evening in camp.
Very well built
Put away antenna
Bright clean volume
Good Placement of keys

The highlight is the NOAA all hazards weather receiving! Highly recommended item, very well put together and will give years of service.

4.0 out of 5 stars Portable labeling on the run..., July 20, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
You have tons of options in printing - from iron on labels, glow int he dark, transparency, black and white and assorted specialty cartridges. It's also portable and can be run off of 6 AA batteries. So, if you are in need of portability, speed and don't have WiFi then this is the system for you.

Once you download the app you are ready to go with setup. The included printer wire is not not needed if you connect via Bluetooth. You can also add pictures which become black and white, unless they are already setup in such a fashion. I love hte QR code and bar code reader printing that is available. You can setup a specific label for merchandise without breaking a sweat, and if price changes, print out a new bar code.

If they drop the price of cartridges then I woudl give the system 5 stars. As it is, it's fantastic and easy to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality Photo, copy, fax and scanner at a bargain basement price., July 12, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Great job and fantastic printing! Very fast printing, low maintenance, quick setup and high quality print outs. Stop heading out to print high quality photographs, you have the ability to do so right from your own home. You can copy, fax, scan, print and make breakfast, well ok not breakfast but it certainly can give you some nice prints from your breakfast pictures. The touchscreen screen is big and bright, so you can see what your are printing and the instructions and setup are very easy to follow. The help features on the system are easy to access via the screen and go the distance in assisting you without having to bring in tech support or a teenager to make it work.

It's a workhorse that keep on printing, and even though the ink is more expensive on these models I seem to be getting more bang for my buck on this system. It prints as close to a laser printer that you can get without forking over the bucks for a high end system.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch printing, July 12, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This item arrived in good order, well packaged and easy to set up. It took a few minutes to un-box and then about 10 minutes to set up. It's on a home network but was first setup as a stand alone system.

I will say the print quality for pictures and normal day to day printing is pretty nice. I would give it 5 stars but the print quality is only as good as the ink and the ink is expensive and they don't fill up the containers as much as needed. The setup cartridges are not as full as the normal cartridges and you can't print unless the printer recognizes that there is adequate level of ink in each one. It would be nice if a company could set up defaults to allow just black printing or odd color printing if needed.

The nicest aspect of the unit is the multi-functions, faxing, scanning, printing and copying all under one roof! Printing photographs is a snap and having the image on the screen helps with picking the exact shot if using an flash drive - for file types, only .jpg and .tif are supported. WiFi is great and works well in my applications. All in all a really nice system, highly recommended.
