Cuisinart CPK-17 Silver PerfecTemp cordless electric kettle with 1-2/3-liter capacity and concealed heating element, 1500 Watt/110 Volts stainless-steel
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This is an expensive tea kettle, but sometimes you get what you pay for. First of all, it's 1500 watts, which is about as high as it can be with 115V-120V electric service, so it's fast. But more important, it has several sub-boiling settings for different kinds of tea that result in a much better tasting cup of tea than you'd get using boiling water. By default, it goes into "keep warm" mode when you put the kettle back on the base, then shuts off after 20 minutes. Of course, if you know you never have more than one cup, you can turn it off when you put the kettle back on the base.

OK, I admit I like the cool blue LEDs too. But the key advantages are that it heats water quickly and the choice of several different temperatures (including boiling if that's what you want)

Cons: I didn't find the instructions intuitive. For instance, you have to hit "start" after selecting a temperature. Once I got past that, though, it does default to "keep warm" after you pour and then it shuts off automatically. I wouldn't mind if the "Keep warm" button was a little larger, but that's a very minor complaint. It's worth the standard Newegg price, but it's certainly pricey.

Other Thoughts: I love a good bargain and I hate paying for just a brand name. This isn't just "a Cuisinart", it's worth the money.

SCOSCHE Black In-Ear 3.5mm Headset w/TapLINE II Control Technology for iPod & iPhone Models (IDR355md)
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

3 out of 5 eggs These are for iPhone not Universally Compatible 08/11/2011

This review is from: SCOSCHE Black In-Ear 3.5mm Headset w/TapLINE II Control Technology for iPod & iPhone Models (IDR355md)

Pros: See other thoughts.

Cons: See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: If you zoom into the picture of the package on this site or go to the Schosche site, you'll find out these are compatible with iPhone and iPod. That's significant, because Apple uses a different pinout on the four-conductor 35 mm plug (called a TRRS). This won't work with other phones or MP3 players unless they use the iPhone pinout (which isn't the standard one).

Having said that, I believe that Blackberry uses the Apple pinout and HTC and LG phones do as well. Investigate the pinout used by your phone so you won't be disappointed.

I don't own one of these and have no opinion about the product. It just isn't "Universally Compatible" the way newegg has listed it.

I also assume newegg doesn't know about TRRS pinouts, so I'm not accusing them of anything other than an honest mistake.
