This review is from: Bush Enterprise Double Pedestal Desk, 60w x 28-1/2d x 30h, Mocha Cherry, Carton 1
Pros: :: Very well built desk. Functional and has some nice features.
:: Easy to put together, though you probably need 2 people to put the top on (it's pretty heavy)
:: Bush customer service was phenomenal (see below)
For some reason, unlike a lot of other products on Newegg, when I purchased this, it was not listed as needing a second purchase. I was extremely angry about this when I realized that what I thought was a $260 desk turned into a $600 desk, especially since we ordered two of them. That said, we went ahead and ordered the other parts (the tops) and eventually everything came in. UPS had completely destroyed two of the boxes and it resulted in having one of the side pieces damaged and one of the drawers destroyed. I contacted Bush hoping that they would be able to handle this rather than trying to do a full return with Newegg, and to my surprise, they were on it super fast. The rep at Bush responded overnight and after giving her some information, she had replacements out via Fedex within a couple days. Very, very good customer service from them.
The desk itself is very well built, has a nice USB hub built into one of the wire plugs, and has great cable management options throughout. I highly recommend.
Cons: :: Newegg did not advertise correctly.
As noted above, there was no mention that this was part of a two-order package when I purchased it originally. That's the only reason I'm dropping an egg.
Other Thoughts: Given the quality of the fixtures, rails and hardware on this desk, I would safely assume that Bush's other products are really good also. One other thing that I though was really cool was the desk came with an actual screwdriver for the few things that needed to be put in (not many), which was nice compared to most products coming with either nothing or some flimsy thing that barely works.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Brother MFC-8910dw 1200 x 1200 dpi USB/Wireless Monochrome All-In-One Laser Printer
Pros: :: Fast and Clean Printing
:: Inexpensive Refills
:: Pretty much does everything a home office could need.
My wife and I needed a somewhat more capable, though just black-and-white, all-in-one setup for our home office, and after doing a lot of review searches, we settled on this one. It was quick and easy to set up (except for a couple minor things, below), prints very well, and Rosewill makes refills for it that are super inexpensive and seemed to be good for a few thousand sheets or so (they rate it at 8000, but I think that's the max - realistically it's more like 4000 if the sheets have a lot of stuff on them). Absolutely been a workhorse for us so far, and it has some nice features with the scanning, once you figure them out (again, below).
Cons: :: Instructions are a little bit wonky
:: Scanning takes a little figuring out
:: No Color (though if you're looking at this, you probably aren't looking for a color printer, I would hope).
The only real gripe is that it became obvious that the printed instructions were not intended to be "quick and easy." Don't get me wrong, setting up the thing was super simple, but the additional functions after setup take a little getting used to. Scanning to your PC (after you've set up the software) is simple, but then you have to choose what you are scanning it as, and instead of simply choosing a file type (jpg, pdf, etc) you pick a less specific term (email, picture, etc) - so you have to get that figured out. That said, folders can be changed, etc. and once you do have it figured out, it works great.
Other Thoughts: A way to re-label the file types would be nice. There's a few choices, and having to think about it every time gets old.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Panasonic Milano Series ER-GB40-S NEW! Wet/Dry Beard/Hair Trimmer
Pros: :: Well priced.
:: Very solid build
:: Adjustments are easy
:: Wet/Dry and simple to clean.
I really can't say enough good things about this, but the short version is this - it performs and is built like a ~$150-$200 trimmer. I caught it on sale for $35 and am unbelievably happy with my purchase. It does exactly what I need it to do, no annoyances involved. I can use it in the shower if need be, adjustment dial is super simple, and the detachable spacer has no secondary latches or anything to deal with.
Cons: :: Spacer style
I wouldn't knock off an egg for it, but I do wish the spacer was shaped slightly differently. It gets difficult occasionally to get those few odd hairs in areas like the corners of your mouth and such. Thankfully it's easy and quick to just take the spacer off and carefully hit them with the direct blade.
Other Thoughts: Worth it at $50, ridiculously worth it at $35-$40.READ FULL REVIEW
