This review is from: Syma X5SC (2015 The Latest Version) Explorers 2 2.4G 4CH RC Headless RTF Quadcopter with 2MP 720P HD Camera - Exclusive Thunder Blue Deluxe Package with Additional Battery & Accessories
Pros: * Very stable and easy to fly
* Looks nice in blue
* Great for kids without expectations
* Durable product for the crashes I have put it through.
Cons: * Camera has NEVER worked
* Not all the motors work all the time
* Battery life is dismal and only gets worse
* Sometimes it does a flip, depends on the remote's mood.
Other Thoughts: I bought this while I was extremely busy because for $45 I figured I couldn't go wrong. But I was wrong, this is just a poorly executed build- even for $45. I have never been able to get the camera to work at all, pulled the memory card and it only had the test photos on it. I am a mid 40's male that has some limited flight time with a friend's helo, so I figured that would transition. It did, but after spending a few hours of watching Youtube videos, I figured out I wasn't the entire issue. I have had this out for a total of 6 flights, only 2 of which were outdoors. The first couple of flights were smooth and fun, but during the third flight I noticed a few motors were gravelly and grinding. So I took time to make sure to use some air on them so that they would be cleaned, they only got louder. By the fourth flight it was loud enough that a 81 y/o with hearing issues could tell something was wrong. By now one motor stuck out as the loudest to turn. Took it out on the fifth flight and it was visibly turning slower after the two minute mark. Took it out today and after about minute and a half to two minutes in the flight it just stopped turning, but the quad was still able to get airborne and have some movement.
I have tried contacting Syma about how to proceed and never received a response, so today I took time to contact the seller to try and clarify if I go through them for warranty or the manufacturer. I really want to like this machine, but with so much failing its just hard to do.
This review is from: Quikcell S150B Black 3.0 Stereo Bluetooth Headset
Pros: Flexible connection
3 different sets of gels for your ears
PLENTY of volume
Great fit in the ear
Cons: Gels can be frustrating for fit.
Charger is not a high output forcing me to use another charger in the house
Other Thoughts: Bought these and another set at the same time, the other set was a bust. These made my day though, they do well in wet/high moisture environments all while allowing you to hear what is going on around you without removing them when you pause them.
Be patient and take time to try all the gels for a day or so before you settle on which ones you're going to use. I am having to use two different size gels for them to fit just right in my ears. They fit a bit different than traditional bud headsets, but once fitted properly they are not an issue to wear for 8 or 10 hours at a time.
The sound quality is not an upper end product, but they are better than the previous 5 sets I tried when having to replace my LG Tone HBS800's. That being said, they are not a booming bass type of headset, but they do give you enough that you can still enjoy your music.
I know some of the earlier reviews they were complaining about low sound output, but these go loud enough that if you listen to them for too long your ears will be hurting from the volume. And yes, this is coming from a metal head that has ran sound systems for years, so I'm not just a pansy about volume.
Pros: Better than average sound for bud style headset
Lightweight, wear and forget type of fit
Better suited for teens and children than most adults.
Cons: Odd fit
Hard to wear for the adults in our family
Only one set of protective gels for the unit.
Other Thoughts: I bought these along with a pair of Quikcell S150's for high activity days after shorting out my LG Tone HBS800's while doing yard work. While I enjoyed the sound when I could keep them in my ears, it was just hard getting them to stay in my ears that was the problem. So after some testing in the family found out they were perfect for my teen niece. Battery charge seems to be right about 5 hours and she loves the sound compared to her other bud style wired headphones.READ FULL REVIEW
