Aroma AHP-303 Single Burner Hot Plate
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs It's Hot 03/07/2015

This review is from: Aroma AHP-303 Single Burner Hot Plate

Pros: First, let's get the obvious out of the way - its a plate and it gets hot. That's pretty much what you would expect with a device like this. One feature may make this more or less desirable to you, and that is the cast iron heating surface. As others have noted, it is heavier than the coil-type hot plates, it takes a little longer to heat up and it stays hot long after you shut it off. Personally, I like the cast iron because it gives more contact surface and because it does stay hot after it is shut off. YMMV

Cons: I have only found one con with this, and I would actually consider it a safety hazard and a major design flaw, which is why I deducted one egg for it. As another reviewer noted there is NO positive OFF position on the controller. It is simply a rheostat control with no positive clicked off position. When you plug it in, it WILL start heating, even if it is in the off position. For that reason, if you have small children in the home, I would recommend you look at other hot plates, or pay very close attention when this one is in use.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers have noted that the thermostat clicks off and on as a con. That is how any electric heating device works. It doesn't just stay in constant heat mode. Even on max heat, it is still going to click off until it cools to below the max temperature. If you want constant full-bore heat, you need a gas ring.

Rothco Low Profile Cap With USMC G and A Logo
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Quality Product 06/01/2014

This review is from: Rothco Low Profile Cap With USMC G and A Logo

Pros: Well-made, quality construction. Bright, crisp colors, heavy fabric, excellent stitching, no dangling threads. Accurate EGA, just a stunning piece of Marine gear.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I was really surprised at what a beautiful cover this is. Any leatherneck would be proud to wear this, I believe. I can't wait to give it to my dad (Korea vet) for Father's Day, he's gonna love it! Very nice piece indeed.

memorex 25GB 6X BD-R 30 Packs Spindle Blu-ray Recordable Media Model 98682
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I don't know what all the problem is with these discs. In the year that I have had my LG BluRay drive, I have burned about 70 of these Memorex 6x discs and at least 120 of the 4x discs and have had a total of - count 'em - one (1) coaster from a 6x and zero from the 4x. I do take the precaution of burning at slower speeds than the drive wants to, and I also verify the data, but other than that, no special precautions and the firmware has never been updated, either.

Cons: None, although I wouldn't mind if they were cheaper, but for over 20 gigs of storage per disc, I'm not going to complain.

Other Thoughts: Just like some guns only like certain ammo, maybe your drives prefer certain brands of discs. I can only report the experience I've had, and I have no reason to stretch the truth. Believe me, if they didn't work for me, I'd tell you that, too. But, as with all things in life, YMMV.
