This review is from: Rosewill RHM-556 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Headset
Pros: These seemed pretty nice, but broke a bit past the 30 day window to RMA. The long cord is necessary for me but actually a bit too long. Audio seemed decent but I won't pose like an expert on that.
Cons: Broke way too soon. At first, I thought there was a problem with the jack or my computer case. For a few weeks I had been having to pull the plug out slightly to get anything beyond very minimal sound and this was putting the strength at 50%. I could tell I was missing half the audio and it would occasionally get stronger if I messed with the plug.
Today my already weakened sound started cutting in and out. I figured I had to mess with the plug, but no it seems like the plastic volume control housing along the cord has some problem.
This review is from: Black & Decker TRO4075B Black 4-Slice Toaster Oven With Convection
Pros: It was just three Hamiltons on sale at a local Sears wannabe. If the tray wasn't so bad, it is acceptable for a low-end TO. Really though, you should buy anything that isn't B&D because all they sell has this same faulty nonstick coating. No, I am not just one of those weirdos who freak out about chemicals in the coating.
Cons: The aluminum pan with silver nonstick coating started to flake the first time I used it normally and gently hand-washed it. I should have known something was up, but waited a bit too long to get my 60-day refund at my local store. It goes into the dishwasher for probably the 2nd time and comes out coated in rust spots. B&D will only send a new pan and I don't see why this one would be any less defective, but we'll see.
Other Thoughts: Spend $50 more on a nice toaster with real toast settings. If you have to go cheap, don't buy B&D with crummy nonstick coating.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fine so far, seemed like a much better value than everything else out there right now. I had some sort of external 2TB on order from another place that cost half as much, but it was a smaller cache, 5400RPM, etc. but they were taking forever to even ship. I'm glad I switched to this.
Cons: none yet
Other Thoughts: Testing out SRT caching with a Samsung 830 and maybe it still needs more time to adapt, but it isn't that much faster than the HDD alone in boot time. I think within windows some things seem faster but speed was nice on HD alone (asrock extreme3 gen 3, i2500, 16g 1600 ram)READ FULL REVIEW
