Pros: It's 10 ft long. I really hate being tethered to something with a short cable, always worrying about moving the wrong way and yanking the cord out. I don't have that problem with this cable.
Cons: None other than the price dropping slightly since I bought it.
Haven't had any problems at all. It's used almost every day.
Other Thoughts: What can be said? It's a cable, it's long, and it does it's job.
I was worried it might not charge as quickly as a short cable (loss of power over the extra length), but I haven't noticed anything. I haven't scientifically measured it, but if there's any loss it's minor.
This review is from: Seiki 40" 1080p 60Hz LED TV - SE40FY27
Pros: Got this on sale. Hard to complain about a 40" 'class' TV for under 280. Hard, but not impossible.
Decent picture. Not as good as my name brand TV in the living room, but was also half the price.
Very strong built in tuner. Gets several stations my old TV would not pick up without any change to the antenna (yes, I'm using an antenna, not cable or satellite). During bad days certain channels will drop in and out, but this TV holds them better than the TVs in my living room.
Lightweight. I easily set the TV 5 ft high on top of a dresser in my bedroom with no assistance. It's only about 20 pounds and very manageable. I still have nightmares of throwing away my old 32" CRT TV a few years ago. I almost killed myself trying to move that heavy beast!
Plenty of inputs & outputs. Several HDMI, standard video, VGA for computers that is supposed to be able to use the full 1920x1080 resolution (haven't tested yet), digital audio output, and headphone outputs. VERY useful and versatile.
Cons: STUCK PIXEL! 29 days after purchase, developed a stuck blue pixel just a few inches up and left of center. Very noticeable in dark scenes. Unfortunately NewEgg must *receive* the TV within 30 days of purchase for a return or replacement per their policy. Now I'm stuck with a defective TV unless I go through the manufacturers replacement process. I'll investigate, but it probably won't be worth the cost and effort.
Same menu system as the infuriating TV it's replacing. This menu & firmware is barely usable. Slow to respond at times.
Very bad audio. Anyone who claims this TV sounds good has VERY low standards and would probably think a 10 year old laptop or first generation tablet has good audio! The good news is, the TV has digital out for hooking up to a sound system (if you have one available), but also headphone output. This makes it incredibly easy to set up a pair of computer speakers. I've got an old pair hooked up now and the sound is infinitely improved. I'm planning on setting up a good set of 2.1 speakers when I get the chance for even better sound.
NO ASPECT SETTING FOR EXACT 1920X1080 aka "Native"!! All of the settings include some sort of over-scan. I personally find it a bit annoying when lose some of the picture to a useless over-scan. It will also cause trouble when hooking my computer up through HDMI. I won't get the exact 1920x1080 output! The aspect settings are: "Standard, Wide, Wide Zoom, Zoom". My 5 year old Toshiba has 7 aspect settings, including "Native".
Other Thoughts: If it wasn't for the STUCK PIXEL, this would be a 4 egg TV, maybe higher if you consider the value.
With the STUCK PIXEL, it's hard to give a 2 egg review. The value kept the review at 2, but I did think about it.
This review is from: Magic Wand HV260 Personal Massager
Pros: I received an authentic Magic Wand, not a knock-off.
VERY strong vibrations. Slightly soft head, so it's a little forgiving. A quick search finds many add-on accessories to make this more fun.
I just got it today, but seems to be very solid and well made.
Cons: These really are relatively minor, especially since I knew about them before the purchase. However, this still isn't perfect.
(1) There are only 3 settings: off, low, and high. More settings or a variable speed dial would be nice. The dial really would be an easy addition.
(2) This is NOT a silent vibrator! If there are others near where you are using this and you don't want them to know, be sure to turn up the volume on the TV or radio.
Other Thoughts: This seems like it will be LOTS of fun! Can't wait to try it with my girlfriend.
I thought about uploading a video review...but...figured that might not be a good idea.
