AOC U2870VQE 28
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

3 out of 5 eggs Meh. 09/24/2015

This review is from: AOC U2870VQE 28" LED LCD Monitor - 16:9 - 1 ms

Pros: Great resolution, no doubt.

Cons: Lousy contrast. Tremendous light bleed-through. Next to my 10-year SyncMaster, this thing -- even when all-black -- looks positively glowing. In a bad way.

Other Thoughts: I would not buy this model again. Can't imagine why it got so many "glowing" reviews.

Velodyne vFree Wireless Bluetooth Headphones (Silver)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Pretty Darn Good 02/02/2015

This review is from: Velodyne vFree Wireless Bluetooth Headphones (Silver)

Pros: Good, balanced sound.
Quite comfortable.
Good range

Cons: Could be a little less cheaply-made.

Other Thoughts: These aren't noise-cancelling. I've never seen this claimed, so don't know why some reviews raise a stink about it. I also see an inexplicable range of sound quality claims. Go figure. I've got fine ears, and some great-sounding, very well-reviewed headphones. IMHO, these sound just fine. The biggest problem -- far-and-away -- is that Bluetooth blows. Depending on the implementation, your sound may be poor, and have such high latency that you can't watch movies/video with these. If so, that's the fault of the transmitting device, not these. I have a good Bluetooth host, and experience slight, but non-problematic latency.

Steeply discounted (four tens) these are an absolute steal.

Polk Audio Atrium 4 Compact Indoor/Outdoor Speaker White Pair
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Own. Love. 12/16/2014

This review is from: Polk Audio Atrium 4 Compact Indoor/Outdoor Speaker White Pair

Pros: Small, great, surprisingly good sound.

Cons: Woofer cage is potmetal.

Other Thoughts: These speakers punch well above their weight class. For < three figures, I'd buy them again in a heartbeat. The only real down is that one dropped from a modest height onto a wood floor. From this, the woofer cage bent, and the driver no longer worked. Polk sold me a new driver, all is well. But they should be made from stiffer metal. That aside, these are really great speakers. I highly recommend them. Remember, for proper bass, placement is ALWAYS critical.
