Pros: Long lasting charge, great amplification, good mate to my phone, excellent range, easy to use, and comfortable behind-the-neck design.
Cons: These play their own jingle to inform you of phone calls, rather than your phone's usual ringtone. I'm not sure why at all.
Other Thoughts: I got these mainly to listen to music and audio from my phone while riding the bus or train to work. I found that they are quite comfortable, fitting well over my ears without affecting my glasses. An extra bonus is that they seem to double as earmuffs as well on chilly mornings. I would probably sleep in them if I could.
Communications during phone calls are excellent. The range is magnificent, easily 30 feet or so, even through residential walls, though commercial firewalls will cut the signal instantly. It gives a quick pair of beeps to let you know when you come back in range of your source for audio and generally re-connects on its own.
I fully discharged the battery as noted in the instructions and now find that with my normal use I easily get two days or more before having to recharge at all.
I am very pleased with this purchase and will likely get some more to pair with a Bluetooth capable tablet in the near future. Yes, I bought these on sale, but they are easily worth the full price.
This review is from: HP V165w 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD16GHP165-GE
Pros: This performed exactly as expected. I bought four of them. Two for general use, two for installation on an Xbox 360 Core system.
I gave two of them away to Friends. They were looking for work and needed a means to keep their documents with them to transfer between computers. 16GB was enough for them to take all their important files while still leaving room for other media as needed.
That made for plenty of storage on the KiNECT bundle I gave away for Christmas. I plugged in two of these and they fit snugly, but without any undue protrusion. They are quite tiny, but shaped just right for easy removal. The system recognized and formatted them without issue. Access was fast, without waits or stutters for Arcade games downloaded to these units.
Cons: Now that the storage capacity per USB device has been increased to 32GB on Xbox 360, it would be nice if that capacity were available at this form factor.
Other Thoughts: Near as I can tell, these things are pretty much perfect. If transporting them, the protective cap fits tight and snug. About the only way to loose them is to take them off, put them to the side, and walk away without them. Which my Friends did... Since I had two extra caps that were unused, I just gave those to them.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SAMSUNG STORY Station 2TB USB 2.0 3.5" External Hard Drive HX-DU020EB/B62 Dark Gray
Pros: I know that many will say that drives of this sort should be used for backup only. Yeah, well... whatever. I got two of these back in May 2010 and they've been running pretty much non-stop ever since. Originally under Windows, but I gave up on that forever by the end of June. They've been speedy and reliable running under Ubuntu 10.04 and now 10.10 without issue.
Cons: Their neat sort of Star Trek: The Original Series styling is very similar to the Galileo shuttle, but lower and sleeker. This makes them seem as if they absolutely should mesh perfectly as stackable drives... Unfortunately that is not the case. So they sit neatly side-by-side on my desk instead.
Other Thoughts: I really wish these were stackable. They seem to have some sort of sleep function built-in that I can't figure out how to disable - though I haven't tried too hard. It really just takes a couple of seconds for them to spin up to full speed when they 'wake'. In the end this is a great product at a superb price. I need to find out if Samsung offers a NAS case or Media Server too...READ FULL REVIEW
