This review is from: Philips Norelco Series 4000 AT810/41HP PowerTouch with Aquatec electric razor with bonus Neutrogena Men Sensitive Skin Shave Cream 5.1 oz, Neutrogena Men Triple Protect Face Lotion 1.7 oz with sunscre
Pros: I got this to replace an older Norelco/Philips XP that was about 3x this price when new, but now needs new heads, and probably a battery at some point, as it's going on 5 years.. Buying this model would be about the same cost as the replacement parts for my older one. This one does not shave quite as well, i.e. it takes more passes to shave totally cleanly, but it does its job. It also has no indicator lights for charging or cleaning reminder, but that's OK, I can keep track of these things ..
In short, it's very fair value for it's cost, and I didn't really expect it to be as good as the more expensive model, so I am happy with my purchase.
Cons: I am a little surprised that the heads do not shave as quickly or efficiently as the more costly XP model, but then I was sort of anticipating that .. Funny, they look about the same, and I assumed that the cost saving was for the 'frills' - charging and other indicator lights,etc. Not really a con though, as you get what you pay, and this little shaver is worth more than the apprx. 1/3 cost of the higher model ..
Other Thoughts: If this unit last as long as my older one which is going on about 5 years trouble-free usage, I'll certainly have got my satisfaction from it..
I prefer the Philips shaving system over others that I have tried, such as the Remington screen type systems etc. . The heads mold to your facial contours and seem to cut a little closer without burning.
Pros: Good monitor. I have 4 of these - different sizes and some model numbers. i find them clear and reliable.
If you're looking to get the $10 or $20 rebate offer, forget it. I sent them all in, never got anything from Asus.. it's a scam in my opinion. Nevertheless, I will still keep buying them, but not if I'm counting on an extra little discount from the manufacturer; it just doesn't exist.
Cons: Asus rebate never came..READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Tyvek Ultrathin Water / Tear-Resistant Wallet, Red Dragon
Pros: Looks attractive, just like the pictures and seems like an indestructible little wallet. I've often marveled at the strength of Tyvek, and here's a unique use for the stuff. I wanted a 'travel' wallet that would survive the outdoors while camping, kayaking, cycling,etc.. and it looks like this just may 'fit the bill'..
I haven't really put it to the test, but it's obvious it will live up to its claims.
Cons: Not really a con, because it does exactly what I imagined it would, but somewhere in the literature it says it has something like 18 different places for documents.. I think that's a stretch, but just as a simple billfold and a few credit cards, it's perfect.READ FULL REVIEW
