4 out of 5 eggsReception is ok

Pros: Connected without any problems. The volume was much louder than my previous cheap earpiece.

Cons: The earpiece loses the connection and I have to pickup the phone to use the conversation. This does not happen very often. Once every few months.

3 out of 5 eggsWorks okay

Pros: Worked fine with my PS3 and cell phone for about 6 months, then it suddenly died. It wouldn't charge, or turn on. I talked to Samsung and they sent me a replacement within a couple of weeks and the replacement hasn't failed yet.

Cons: Slow replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsDead at the age of 3... A Tragic Loss

Pros: This was my first Bluetooth ever. I wanted it for the car and for traveling and talking hands free. I was excited that out of the box it was easy to connect with my LG800G phone with no issues. I got a good deal after both the instant rebate and the mail in rebate.

Cons: I bought this on 4/13 and by 7/4 it was dead. Will not charge, will not turn on anymore. Dead at the young age of 3 months. What a shame, it will be missed. I have always liked Samsung and I am very disapointed with this bluetooth's life span.

Other Thoughts: I will check with Samsung about any kind of warranty but I will NOT hold my breath on it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Connects well, has a fairly good distance from phone. People I'm calling most of the time don't have any problems with understanding me. Once I called someone and they said i sounded far away from the microphone, but that was only once out of many calls.

Cons: Sometimes it disconnects with my phone. I'm not entirely sure whether it is my phone or the earpiece, but it's not often that this happens. I personally don't find a problem with the quality of the sound, but a friend of mine did not appreciate the sound quality.

Other Thoughts: For about 20 bucks, you get two chargers (12V DC and 120V AC), a phone stand, and a carrying case for your phone. The quality, from my experience, is not bad. There are times it disconnects, but never during a call. I can hear better ( I work around loud machines), and it's overall easier to talk, I reccomend this earpiece to anyone.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: Sounded good while they worked-which cancels out as soon as they break...so no "pros"

Cons: pure junk...I bought two of these. One fell off the table and the earpiece popped out and one of the speaker wires came loose. It could probably be soldered back together if you were about 2 inches tall. The other one stop working after MAYBE 2 uses. Won't turn on or do anything.
