This review is from: Contigo 24 oz Madison Autoseal Water Bottle - Blue
Pros: High initial quality. Affordable price. Great design. Attractively styled from tough plastic.
Does not leak at all. You can turn it upside down and shake it and it won't drip. The button action is pleasantly tight and reliable. The button doesn't bind and, when you release it, it snaps shut with a rubber seal.
Cons: Seems to fit a bit awkwardly in the cup holder in my truck because it's tall and the bottom is slightly rounded. Of course, if it were any wider, it wouldn't fit in the cup holder. If it were any shorter, it wouldn't hold as much water.
Carabiner clip is made out of plastic. I'm not sure how strong it is. It does seem very strong for being plastic.
Other Thoughts: I bought this bottle because I bought a travel coffee mug from Contigo and had such great luck with it. Seriously, unless you want to go cheaper for some reason, get this one.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Energy Take 5 Pack 5 CH Home Theater Speaker System
Pros: Very wide and true frequency response. Quality piano black finish. Wire connectors are sturdy. You can screw in the wires directly (no spring-loaded garbage) or use banana plugs. To use the banana plugs, remove the colored polarity caps on the terminals.
Cons: You will need to buy a subwoofer to complete this setup, but in my case I considered this a good thing. I wanted to buy the sub separately so I chose this package. If you would prefer, Energy does offer a package with these speakers and a sub.
Other Thoughts: You could get better speakers, but not at this price. This brand name is a subsidiary of Klipsch. The name sounded corny to me but after reading so many glowing reviews I decided to give these a try. I'm glad I did.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cideko AVK-02-915 Black RF Wireless Mini Keyboard
Pros: The keyboard is just big and comfortable enough to feel good in the hands. The grips feel as comfortable as an XBox controller. Controls are logically and conveniently placed.
Cons: The air mouse motion is just not quite what it should be. I've used a Gyration Air Mouse and the motion is more comfortable. I was hoping to get that feel with a bonus keyboard in this product. The problem is that to move sideways, it doesn't work well to use the flick of a wrist. I was hoping it would feel more like a Wiimote. It's not even in the same neighborhood as a Wiimote for ease of motion. However, the Wiimote needs the sensor bar to accomplish this. The Cideko does not.
Other Thoughts: Something weird happened when I tested this out; My PC wouldn't boot with the transceiver dongle plugged in. It just hung up at the POST screen. Unfortunately I haven't yet investigated further what happened. The machine boots fine when the dongle is unplugged. Then I can plug it in and it works fine.READ FULL REVIEW
