Pros: The memory foam conforms to my noggin quite nicely, and is only slightly warmer than my down pillows.
Cons: The smell is horrendous, and has not gone away after nearly a month of airing out. The cases for the pillows cannot be washed, only spot cleaned.
Other Thoughts: I purchased a pair of these as a Black Friday deal, figuring I'd give "cool gel" a try. Unfortunately, when you unbox these Kathy Ireland (seriously?) pillows, the chemical stank is overwhelming. My girlfriend and I couldn't even be in the same room as these pillows, let alone sleep on them. We've left them to air out for almost a month now, and the smell has faded a lot... but not enough to put your head upon. I hope that I'll be able to use one of these at some point in the future, but it will take at minimum another week until I can bear to have my nose near the things.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Looks snazzy with a horizontal pinstripe, glossy finish.
Plays blu-rays and 3D blu-rays (provided you have the software and equipment to handle them)
Blue indicator light.
Cons: Sounds like a jet turbine when spinning up discs.
Other Thoughts: 1) Originally, an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) was a company that supplied equipment to other companies to resell or incorporate into another product using the reseller's brand name. For example, a maker of refrigerators like Frigidaire might sell its refrigerators to a retailer like Sears to resell under a brand name owned by Sears. A number of companies, both equipment suppliers and equipment resellers, still use this meaning.
2) More recently, OEM is used to refer to the company that acquires a product or component and reuses or incorporates it into a new product with its own brand name.
This review is from: Sony Reader Touch Edition - Red (PRS-650RC)
Pros: Good size - big enough to be easy on the eyes, but small enough for easy transport. Fantastic screen. Touch-screen. Several built-in dictionaries allow quick and easy reference without leaving book. Great battery life. Light weight. A lot (but not all) formats are well supported. Expandable memory.
Cons: Screen can get a bit of a glare in direct light. The Sony software sucks. Price.
Other Thoughts: Although the price is a consideration, you do get what you pay for. The screen glare can be worked around 99% of the time by just changing the angle of the reader, so it really isn't much of a concern. Even though the Sony software is fairly horrible, this ebook works great with Calibre on all OSes. You can bypass the software entirely, but you have to pay attention to the folder structure, otherwise the reader will crash. This is important even for SD or Memory Sticks that are inserted in the unit. Basically, books go in: [READER or SD or MS]/database/media/books/ and you can use whatever subdirectory structure you like.READ FULL REVIEW
