ASUS T102HA-D4-WH Transformer Book 10.1" 2 in 1 Laptop(White/Orange)

A great Tablet/PC combo that can’t be beat!
I bought this to use in meetings at work. I tried my Ipad, but it never met my needs for PC laptop functionality. I looked at many products and decided on the Asus Transformer. I have been using it since Friday with no issues with hardware or software. As an upgrade, I bought a magnetic mini USB charging cable which is great and easy to use. The computer comes with a pen and keyboard attachment, a big difference from the Microsoft Surface product. I have not used the pen much, but I will start using it when I can see how it fits my work. The screen, although not HD, is very clear and bright. The machine boots fast. This is my first Windows 10 machine, so I had a bit of learning on that. A great value for your money! Pros: Clear screen Good keyboard feel Pen is included plenty of space with 128 GB, ungradable with an additional micro SD card Lightweight and easy to carry around No bloatware Cons: Pen loop is unusable and a distraction Backside of keyboard is a soft material that might not be durable Could have used a better startup cheat sheet USB charging port seemed flimsy (why I upgraded to the magnetic port)

Works as expected & this version seems to have resolved the concerns of past models for being very slow to process.
Machine came in and worked great. Have enjoyed it since it arrived and it is quickly becoming a permanent attachment to my right hand. :>)

Olympus Noise Cancelling Microphone

A quality mini (3.5mm) microphone, I would certainly recommend it
A+ Functionality A+ Size/Weight A- Build A- Quality I bought this to plug into a Rockit Headphone/Microphone Splitter in the headphone jack on my PS4 Dualshock 4 controller, so I can chat into the DS4 while listening to the chat through the TV (done through PS4 audio settings). It also functions as an secondary mic on my Tascam digital recorder. It works like a charm. The build is good and it does everything it is supposed to do. It also comes with a 3.3 foot extender w/clip, which can be handy when doing voice recording. Just a quality mini (3.5mm) microphone. If you need this, I would certainly recommend it.

Maybe that might hurt reception end but so far it seems to work fine and keep them covering on
I am resting my wrists and trying to dictate to a recorder. This has made this possible so i can do chores and "write" while Im cleaning. I will keep even when my wrists are stronger. But the microphone foam covering does fall off as well as the lapel hook. I took double sided tape for the top. Maybe that might hurt reception end but so far it seems to work fine and keep them covering on. For the lapel I switched it out with a binder clip.

Inateck 4 Ports PCI-E to USB 3.0 Express Card for Mac Pro (Early 2008 to 2012 Late Version) – USB 3.0 4-Port Expansion Card Desktop, No Additional Power Connection Needed

Card + Mac Pro (Early 2009) + El Capitan seems fine
Installed in a Mac Pro (Early 2009), running El Capitan 10.11.6, in the last available PCI slot. Seems to be fine, much faster transfer rate to a high-speed USB 3.0 memory stick, though I haven’t done metrics. Bought a couple 3′ USB 3 extension cables so I wasn’t fishing around behind the Mac on the floor to connect memory sticks and such. No impact to system stability. One star off for the nicely-printed fold-out installation instructions making zero reference to Mac requirements or installation. I opened the box, installed the card, closed the box, booted, and it just worked, so it’s not like much info was needed. If they’re going to do a Mac-specific version, some mention of the platform and installation would have been nice.

Easy to install No “power” needed Tranfers files from USB …
Pros: Easy to install No "power" needed Tranfers files from USB 3.0 drives at 80-100mb/s Cons: Definitely not running 3.0 speeds on my Icydock Raid that clocks at 750mb/s on my mac pro at work with buily in 3.0. While editing (Premiere / Avid) and coloring (Davinci) it sometimes crashes my system Interferes with my Black Magic Insanity Card on a regular basis. Was very excited about this, but unfortunately, it isn’t great.

Symphonized NRG Bluetooth Wireless Wood In-ear Noise-isolating Headphones | Earbuds | Earphones with Mic & Volume Control (Red)

Like them so much I purchased a second set!
These are the best sounding, most comfortable ear buds I have ever owned. I like them so much that I ordered a second set so I can wear them whilst the other one charges! The charge lasts about five hours but it only takes about an hour and fifteen minutes to recharge. Because my ears are really sensitive, I changed out the tips for memory foam ones (purchased separately) and I don’t use the ear hooks. The sound is fantastic! The base is deep and resonate. The tenor crisp and clear. The distance these work from the device is terrific! I can go up my stairs and into another room with them without losing connection! The price is more than fair for such a great pair of ear buds!

Not sweat resistant
Ive had two pairs of these ear buds and neither lasted more the one week. If you plan on sitting at home using these they are fine. Do not use these at the gym. I do have to say that the companys customer service is good but the product is not worth $29

PowerBear Samsung Galaxy S7 Battery Case [4,500 mAh] High Capacity External Battery Charger for the Galaxy S7 (Up to 1.5X Extra Battery) – BLACK [24 Month Warranty and Screen Protector Included]

Flimsy build quality.
I ordered this in hopes of extending my phones battery life during the work day. However after receiving the item and opening it up, i was very disappointed in over all build of it. I know you get what you pay for. I also know that i ordered a regular case for my phone and paid about half as much for it. Comparing build between the two cases ,my regular case wins hand down. Thanks but no thanks to Power Bear.

Decent
Phone usually dies around afternoon turn it on and it gives 1 full charge and still has enough juice for roughly 50% if you turn it off to charge or 40% if u just leave it locked with no usage. As a case i havnt dropped it yet. so i cant say. The screen protector isnt that great. Had a hard time sticking to my screen and eventually fell off. Overall i just wanted the extra charge and i got that.

Toyota Black Premium Leather Car Key Chain Coin Holder Zipper Case Remote Wallet Bag

Big key case!
Didn’t expect it to be so big lol that you can put about 3 home keys in it together with a car remote.

I would definitely recommend. Nice, sleek looking and easy to open, but durable zip
