This review is from: Norelco QT4070/41 Vacuum Stubble and Beard Trimmer Pro
Pros: Do you remember those cartoons from the '50s where they'd show a "Car of the future" or "House of the future" where there were ridiculous features that made everything so convenient? This is the trimmer of the future. It has a vacuum! That's awesome! So is the turbo setting! And the fact you can use it while charging! And it comes with other things! If I lived in the woods, totally off the grid, I'd figure out how to use a potato or tree bark to keep this as my one creature comfort.
Cons: It seems like the battery life has diminished over time, but that's not terrible considering it's still very good and you can still use it while charging.
Other Thoughts: I wish there were more manly products on the store shelves like this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: SanDisk Sansa View 2.4" Black 8GB MP3 Player
Pros: I bought this last summer and there haven't been any technical problems with it yet. There's a great outlay on the menus, controls are easy to figure out even if you skip over the instructions like I do, and expanding with a mico SD wasn't a hassle at all.
Cons: The headphones aren't anything spectacular, but what do you expect with something included in a package. The only real gripe I have is that I dual-boot between XP and Ubuntu Ultimate, and when you're in one OS the computer won't recognize any files you uploaded to the player from the other. I can understand there being a barrier with this, but it would've been nice to transfer stuff hassle-free.
Other Thoughts: My own stupidity: I dropped it in a snowbank last winter. Cleaned off the contacts as best as I could but it won't charge via the USB input in my car stereo anymore. It'll still play in the car, and it'll still charge from my computer and the wall, but that's it. It can take a fair amount of physical abuse, but still treat it like the technical wonder it is.READ FULL REVIEW
