Pros: I have to admit, I thought I had a winner here for a low-priced ceramic heater. It looks great, sleek black and a pretty small size for how much heat it produces. I also really like the tip-over switch being much larger in diameter so that it can sit on carpet and still engage the switch and operate. My previous heater had a tiny "pin" sized tip-over switch, which would not work on carpet unless there was a hard flat object (like a book) under it.
Unfortunately, that's where the Pros end.
Cons: After taking the heater out of it's box, I plugged it in on the floor with more than 5 feet of space on every side, it was in the absolute middle of my room. The room was 66 degrees F at the time, and it proceeded to heat the room to 72 degrees in about 30 minutes, at which point it turned off. This heater has a thermostat knob, which was set to the highest position, meaning it should not turn off at any point. I even rotated the knob back and forth several times. So I unplugged the heater and left it off for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes of the heater being off, the room was back to 66 degrees F. I plugged it back in, thinking it had just overheated, and NOTHING. Completely broken after just 1 use and 30 minutes. Since then, I have tried waiting one hour, and different sockets throughout my apartment, which I know work. Still broken. The red light on top of the heater comes on, but the fan does not spin.
Other Thoughts: I can honestly say that this is the shortest I've ever had a product work for me, 30 minutes??? I wouldn't even pay $1 for a device which works for 30 minutes and then completely breaks. For this, I award this heater 1 egg, which is actually 1 egg too many if you ask me.
If you're reading this right now, do yourself a favor and order ANYTHING ELSE.
This review is from: Beats Pill 2.0-Black
Pros: Easy to pair, battery lasts a decent time, fashionably sized for easy travel use. The cons easily outweigh the pros though
Cons: You're buying this speaker for better sound quality than your phone or laptop speakers, right? I can't believe how many positive reviews there are for this thing!!! Has anyone actually used their ears to listen to the sound produced by the beats pill? It's horrible! The sound quality is not much better than blasting music from your iPhone. I'll admit the volume level can get quite respectably loud, but the quality is absolute garbage, I was really expecting more. There is absolutely NO bass, and a lack of lower midrange. The result is a shrill, ear shattering reproduction of your favorite music.
Go to a retail store and listen to all of the competitors if you don't believe me, I purchased this and quickly returned it, I now have a UE unit which is INFINITELY better sounding.
Other Thoughts: Seriously almost every Bluetooth speaker on the market sounds better than this unit. I'm almost insulted that the price of his beats pill is so high, and yet the sound quality can be likened to a $29 Chinese knock-off of any Bluetooth speaker.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Orange MOUW2020TB Black 5 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB RF Wireless Optical 1600 dpi Mouse
Pros: Honestly, for the $15 I paid here on newegg for this mouse, it has been fantastic. I travel for work a lot, and like to game when I'm in the hotel at night on my laptop. I wanted a cheap alternative to my Logtiech G9X I use with my desktop which I love dearly.
This mouse does it all for me:
+Feels solid to me (don't know what the other reviews are talking about with saying it feels cheap)
+It has lasted me 2 years of being thrown around in a large briefcase with many other loose items, nothing has broken on it
+very good battery life, infact almost 1 whole year on 2 AAAs with every day use
+click effort is perfect, and makes a nice quality click feel and noise
+scroll wheel feels great, it takes just the right amount of effort to click and scrolls have a nice thick feeling, not loose or rickety feeling.
+the tracking is simply spot on, it tracks just as good as my G9X does, and I like the adjustable DPI button on the mouse which is located in an area where you can't accidently press it
+rubber texture feels nice and prevents slippage after eating greasy snacks while using it
+wireless dongle is small and fits inside the mouse for traveling
Cons: While the mouse has a solid feel to it, it does have some downfalls:
-side buttons are EXTREMELY easy to press and often are pressed without the intent of pressing them. Most of the time, this is not a problem because of the location of the side buttons, but if you hold the mouse in a slightly awkward position, you'll find yourself browing back and forward in webpages when you did not want to.
-the usb dongle which fits inside the mouse for traveling can sometimes become stuck inside the mouse and require more effort than I expected to remove it again.
Other Thoughts: I love this mouse, and I have actually ordered another for my work computer because it is quite comfortable to use for long periods of time.READ FULL REVIEW
