This review is from: JVC HA-FX67A Vibration-Proof Earbud - Blue With Black Cord
Pros: •Unique design makes it impossible to confuse L & R buds & fits the ear much better than most I've seen.
•Adjustable sheath for keepin' 'em tigher or loose under the chin.
•Sound Range is fantastic!!! Bass & highs are represented better than the few other earbuds I've had, which include some made by Sony, Phillips, Skull Candy, & Creative(& in that order). The Skull Candy's were very close but I think a bit heavy on the Bass.(one side eventually failed, like the Creative ones, thus the replacements)
•They've LASTed! Bought these back in Apr. 2012 & they still sound great. No signs of 'em "going out" like the last pair(the Creative Black Zen AURVANA's had like no Bass & I think it was my method of boosting it that might've killed the left bud)
•Appropriate cord length.
Cons: •After wearing them for significantly long periods of time, the "air bubble" bulge can become a slight discomfort.
...can't really think of anything else currently.

This review is from: Weiita Tactical LED Flashlight, 600LM, CREE LED
Pros: -Extremely bright for a 'flashlight' of this size
-Light mode change can be initiated without clicking the button all the way, making it quick & easy to cycle thru to what you want.
-Definitely like that the SOS mode isn't too slow. Friend o' mine had one that seemed a bit on the slow side & it kinda drove me crazy.
-Battery recharged properly
-Battery life seemed pretty good. Had to wait until now for it to fully die so I could finally test the charger. Ordered mine just after the start of August this year.
Cons: -The lens is Plastic but easy to get out so replacement will only be as much a problem as obtaining another lens
-Aluminum housing being used as part of the electronic circuit, in my experience, usually means electrical problems within one of the most basic circuits on the planet.
LUCKILY, such has not been the case with this one's housing. ^_^
Other Thoughts: Vary satisfied with this purchase & how it's turned out.
Have noticed it gets warm when on high output mode for a while.
This review is from: MOTOROLA MR355R Two-Way Radio
Pros: Power mode handles better than expected in the Arizona mountains between Phoenix & Snowflake. Used these in a caravan on that trip.
Didn't know it but they come with a change of faceplates that you can use if you want to change the camo out for a highly visible neon orange.
.... I suppose it's kind of an inconvenience that the screws that hold the faceplate on are the special 'star' kind & so small phillips head screwdrivers won't work. What's the point of that? Srsly, don't make it extra hard to change something like that out, eh?
Other Thoughts: Manual seems very thorough but the frequency chart in it is a bit confusing.
Keep in mind that the private channels are only filters for what is received. Other folks using the same channel without said privacy filters will receive transmissions sent on all private channels. So don't think you're actually making secure transmissions.
For example: Radios A through E are all communicating on channel 10 but each is using a different private channel(like a sub-channel). Radio Z is on channel 10 but not using a private channel. Radios A-E will NOT hear each other's transmissions until they change their private channel to match that of the radio using one & broadcasting. Neither will they hear Radio Z's broadcasts until they turn their private channel to 0 (or off). Radio Z on the other hand, being in range, will hear all broadcasts by radios A-E
Some manufacturers place restrictions on how details of their products may be communicated.
