This review is from: Sennheiser HD429s Over-Ear Headphones
Pros: Bought as a Christmas present, on holiday sale. Recipient is very happy! I tried these for a few minutes, compared to more expensive Sony MDR V6 and MDR 7506. These are lighter, and very comfortable. Sound is almost as good as the Sonys and better than two other celebrity-branded headsets I also compared: VModa M100, and $200 MSRP 50cent . Sound is overall quite balanced and neutral. Sound isolation is really good. Plus you can use them for phone calls. In terms of price/performance and neutral sound (I hate boomy, artificially boosted bass) these are a great value.
Cons: Deep bass could be better, for example "Ophelia" on the Natalie Merchant live album. It's still good, just not on a par with higher end phones, but for the price it is more than good enough.
Other Thoughts: Great for anyone who wants to listen to music and also handle phone calls easily. Super light and comfortable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got this on black friday special, what a deal? Snappy performance, plenty of memory, large, crisp, bright screen, viewable outdoors, can go a couple of days or more without charging. Gorilla Glass. Removable battery. My favorite Android phone so far! Talk about bang for the buck: this is it. Five eggs for great value even though it does not have every single feature I would like: all the important ones are there.
Cons: Wonder about ability to update to Android 6. whatever. But even without that, 5.1 is good now and probably fine for the next year at least.
Wish it had 5 GHz WiFi and NFC, but for the price I can live without these.
Have not found a decent price on a spare battery yet.
Other Thoughts: Got a dual-molded bumper case for it. If I get at least a year out of this I will be very pleased. This replaced a Samsung Relay 4G, this phone blows it out of the water. All the features such as voice searching work very nicely on this phone. Would not want a screen any larger: this still barely fits in a pocket. Really impressed with the battery life: 24 hrs with what I consider heavy use, including bursts of GPS and maps, and 48+ hours if not using it much. My old phone could not even go 12 hours of moderate use. Wish I had bought two more of these as gifts while it was on sale.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk 8GB Cruzer Blade CZ50 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ50-008G-B35)
Pros: Compact, Sandisk is a good brand
Cons: Plastic housing, so small it's easy toi lose it
Other Thoughts: With Atto Disk Benchmark, getting 12 MB/sec writes and 25 MB/Sec reads, which is pretty good for a USB 2 device.READ FULL REVIEW
