This review is from: Bluedio 99A Bluetooth Stereo Headset for Mobile Phones - Retail Packaging
Pros: Cheap, functional, reasonably comfortable, gives you media playback in a mono bluetooth device (with stereo if you want it).
I listen to a lot of podcasts, and most bluetooth headsets that are designed for calls won't play media audio. This device does. I can listen to a podcast, and people just think I have a bluetooth headset in my ear. If I want to "tune out" I can plug the other earpiece in, but I rarely do.
Battery lasts *forever* -- like weeks. I've never run out of juice. I just bought this second one so when I lose this one (which I've done for as much as a month or more) I don't go without my podcasts. Plus now I have a second set of accessories. the charger cradle is really nice and works very well.
The rotating earbud really makes this very comfortable, it's very easy to get it in a position that fits my ear.
Cons: I have had occasional complaints about phone audio quality (mostly being very quiet). The microphone is on the top of the device, instead of at the end. I usually point the device down to the floor when I'm on a call and there are no more complaints.
Other Thoughts: Good price for a good product, bought a second one for convenience.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Actiontec PWR511K01 AV500 Powerline Network Adapter Kit, Up to 500Mbps
Pros: Inexpensive (at least when I got them)
Packets often arrive at the remote destination
Cons: Disconnects, often doesn't reach rated speed.
Other Thoughts: I had a set of TP-Link 200Mbps powerline adapters that worked like a charm. Truly plug and play. These have disconnected three times in the two months I've used them, and don't reconnect on their own. I have to go press the button on them to reset them.
They get two eggs for mostly working most of the time, but that's being extremely generous.
This review is from: Logitech F540 2.4 GHz Rechargeable Wireless Gaming Headset for PS3/Xbox 360
Pros: I spent a lot of time figuring out what gaming headset I wanted to use, and I hit a homer with this one. Built-in batteries mean it can just plug it in to my phone's micro-USB charger, no swapping out batteries. Charge lasts a week or so of gaming.
The mic auto-mutes when you flip it up, goes hot when you flip it down, it's very convenient & effective. independent volume controls on the headset for game audio & chat audio.
Great sound quality & range
Cons: Recommends connecting using the composite video cable that came with my PS3 (which I was practically offended by; why did they pack in that cable with a high-def machine?) Was able to connect it to the audio-out of my TV, so no real loss, but could be a pain for others.READ FULL REVIEW
