Pros: It does what it's supposed to do. I'm not bothered in the least by the manual settings. It gives me more control over the end result anyway. It takes some getting used to, but after several test shots I was easily able to use the metering, make the settings and shoot.
The unit doesn't seem cheaply made at all. We'll see how this thing works out with some use, but I expect with reasonable care this flash should last. The large LCD screen is a nice feature, especially for someone like me over 40 wearing glasses.
It costs far less than other name brand flashes. It works great with my Nikon D5000 and is much less expensive than a Nikon flash.
Cons: It doesn't have TTL, but then for the price one can't expect such luxuries. Again, I generally prefer manual settings. The owner's manual is scant, only giving what the features are without any explanation. It's Chinese, but I'm not entirely certain that's a "con".
Other Thoughts: Just a great, simple camera flash with some good features.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cuisinart DCC-1100BK Black 12-Cup Programmable Coffeemaker
Pros: ...you'll ever need. Easy to operate. Simple directions for programmed coffee making. Great look on the counter. It does what it's supposed to do and does it well. Added benefit of having a water filter. Our previous coffeemaker carafe would spill coffee as it poured. Probably an issue with poor design of the spout. This one has no such issues, thankfully. This coffeemaker makes better tasting coffee than the last one anyway. This is a great item.
Cons: No cons that I can tell.
Other Thoughts: Newegg is great. Catch this one on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BROAN 30" Non-Ducted Range Hood 413004 Stainless Steel
Pros: The unit isn't as fancy as some more expensive models, but it is simple elegance and performs well. Installation was easy with the provided hardware, and easily fits into standard sized 30" over range cavity. Purchased through Newegg as their price was over $10 cheaper than local retail, not to mention savings on tax, with free shipping. Unit was packaged sufficiently to avoid possible damage in shipping. Stainless finish matches well with existing kitchen decor. Highly recommended, particularly considering the price.
Other Thoughts: It mayn't be like some super wiz-bang over range hoods, but this one really is a quality hood considering the price.READ FULL REVIEW
