This review is from: Kingston 16GB DataTraveler SE9 USB 2.0 Flash Drive (DTSE9H/16GBZ)
Pros: I think the size, physically, is just right. I've been carrying jump drives around on my keys for years and the hole is just the right size to fit on a carabiner, and it's small enough not to stick out of a Blu Ray player or Laptop very much.
Cons: I haven't found any cons yet. It works, and works fine without being big and bulky.
Other Thoughts: I liked it so much I bought two, and will probably by another one in a higher capacity.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Panasonic WiFi Ready Blu-ray Player DMP-BD65
Pros: It works as a Blu-Ray player and can access Netflix (usually).
Cons: The Viera-Cast access is VERY slow and the interface is clunky. No way to access other content on the network and doesn't play all types of computer files.
Other Thoughts: I have both this player, and a Samsung C5500. Both are on the same network, with the same router, and even the ethernet cables are from the same manufacturer bought from New Egg at the same time.
The Samsung is far and away the better player, and is (usually) cheaper too. It's much faster accessing Netflix, it can play almost any file type, it can play them across the network from another computer. It also has a much easier graphic interface.
Also, a few times the Panasonic couldn't find Netflix...I had to re-start the player. Very frustrating. I've yet to encounter that problem with the Samsung.
This review is from: Accessory Power FM Transmitter Car Mount System For iPhone 4/3GS GG-Flex-Pod
Pros: Nice adjustable holder. Will hold a small iPod Nano to an 8 year old Gen 2 iPod firmly. The iPod connector is a nice touch especially since it will charge the iPod too. Can be used with any MP3 player (or even an old 80's Walkman or for that matter) through the headphone jack input.
Cons: The cigarette plug is too "fat" to fit into a standard cigarette lighter. The big rubber pads around the plug tend to push out the plug so it's constantly losing power. The signal isn't "crystal clear". Gooseneck is a little short for some cars (in my case a full size 1997 Chevy pickup)
Other Thoughts: In order not to destroy my cigarette lighter plug, I had to cut off one of the rubber pads with an Xacto knife. It fits OKay now. Before, it was just too fat, and would constantly come out since it was hard to push in. It's too bad, the rest of the design is really good.
Also, since I got this for audiobooks and not music, I can hear the static more. It's not bad and if you find just the right channel is more than tolerable, but it's not "crystal clear" as others have stated. The static is very minor, but it's there. For the record I've used another FM modulator with this radio and that one was indeed crystal clear.
