They say that a good quality powerbank is much heavier than its cheap counterpart, because includes batteries and accumulators of a better quality and in a bigger number. Only thanks to this you can get true 10 000 mAh.
They say, the heavier it is the better it is. Well... not!
If you want a truly good quality powerbank then simply test it. Check, if:
- It looses all its charge during just a single month (must last at least a year since charging)
- It has problem charging just a half sized battery and looses all the charge trying to do so
If any of above is true, you don't even have to open it up to expect some piece of clay or otherwise creative solution inside.
There is a third (next to this one and this one), quite pretty fuckup with HP printer's settings. Even though they have full hardware support for duplex printing, this feature (as good as many others -- like manual page feeding) comes disabled.

When running my HP LaserJet Pro M426fdn for the first time I didn't removed touchscreen foil and my finger slipped over when selecting location of my printer. I ended up with having proper language but location set to Estonia and some reports (like Google Cloud Print configuration leaflet) printed in cyrylic (even though entire printer interface was set to English).
Unfortunately, due to extreme stupidity of HP engineers you are forced to perform a full factory reset of your printer in this situation.

In HP support you have to login, if you want to sign-in...
...and you have to login, if you want to register!
In order to create a new account you have to login to it first. Fuck me...
There's a huge weird bug in Polycom SoundPoint IP 331 PoE phones.
When changing display name using web panel you can enter space in it. This will be accepted, but after phone is restarted this will render in useless (many features not working; unable to call any number).
You'll be forced to reset your phone to defaults (see here for details).
The Mio MiVue 658 Touch dashboard camera is generally a good piece of hardware.
Unfortunately, among some extra features (like included safety cameras warning feature) and some obvious things, found in most dashboard cameras (like being able to use it for just 10-20 seconds without external power source) it also has two huge fuckups, which may not be so obvious to people willing to purchase it.

OKI engineers proved that you can create a driver setup program, that is not only as less user-friendly as possible, but also isn't able to correctly detect a printer, it is supposed to install drivers for. In 2016 OKI developers proves that such things are still possible.

Believe it or not, it took me more time to unpack the player, install hard drive inside and briefly read manual (approx. 30 minutes total) then to use this device and decide to return it to shop. Let me underline the meaning of this post:
