Motorola Droid X MB810 Smartphone for Verizon (Black)
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Avoid this phone 09/09/2013

This review is from: Motorola Droid X MB810 Smartphone for Verizon (Black)

Pros: Large screen
Slim, lightweight design
Great camera (when it works)
Navigation works well (when it can find the GPS & run without freezing the entire phone )
OK battery life

Cons: Slow performance loading apps
Unresponsive screen / Accuracy probelms with screen
Freezes / Crashes very frequently
3G not very fast / buffers often on media apps
Pre-loaded with bloatware like Blockbuster etc (even on refurbished phones)

Other Thoughts: I've had this phone over 2 years, and out of all that time, I was only truly happy for it for the first 9 months. After that point, I started to have more and more frequent problems with the phone running slow in general (i.e. loading of apps); the screen becoming unresponsive, and the phone frequently freezing up or crashing. I don't know if this was due to of upgrades to the OS or what; but it wasn't my doing, I've never had an excessive amount of apps or data on the phone, and the few apps I do have installed are reputable / mainstream ones like Facebook, Pandora, etc. A while back I got a warranty replacement from Verizon (which was a refurbished phone), it runs slightly better than my old one, but still barely runs Rdio, my favorite app, and crashes almost daily for no apparent reason.

It's too bad the performance of this phone is so poor, because it's an attractive phone with a nice big screen, great camera (when working), etc. If only it actually worked. If the Droid X were a car it'd be a BMW M3, but with a Yugo engine in it....

Polk Audio RM75 5 CH High Performance 5 Piece Surround System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Decent, but could be better 04/04/2013

This review is from: Polk Audio RM75 5 CH High Performance 5 Piece Surround System

Pros: Small
Stylish
Quality Construction
Reasonable Price

Cons: Disappointing sound

Other Thoughts: As another reviewer said, these speakers are lacking in the lower midrange frequencies. You're never going to get a lot of bass from speakers this size, but there's no reason they should be so weak in the lower mids. I also thought the treble was weak. I was expecting great sound, but honestly these speakers sound to me like they're inside a cardboard box. The sound is just that flat. They are also very directional, as in you can tell exactly where the sound is coming from. Good speakers should make you forget they're even in the room. You should hear the music (or movie dialog/sound effects), not the speakers themselves.

These just weren't cutting it for me so I sold them and bought larger Polk Monitor Series II bookshelves and center channel from Newegg that I am WAY happier with. Polk generally makes good speakers but I think these are not one of them. They do seem very well made and are nice to look at, it's just too bad the sound is not up to par.

Patriot Xporter XT Boost 16GB Flash Drive (USB 2.0 Portable) Model PEF16GUSB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Durable
Stylish
Good price

Cons: None?

Other Thoughts: I've been using this flash drive to store music files, mostly MP3's, for my car stereo system. I have an Alpine headunit with a USB input and have a cable running into my center console where the USB drive stays plugged in almost permanently. I have used it on a few occasions to transfer files too large to email, like projects and presentations for school; but 99% of the time I just use it to play music off of. In that capacity I use the drive almost every day. It's been pretty reliable; occasionally, maybe once every two weeks, my headunit will display 'Media Player Error', and I'll have to unplug the USB drive and plug it back in, which always clears the error message. I don't know if that's the fault of the drive or the headunit but it's not a big deal. It's never lost any data or gave me any other problems.
