This review is from: Changhong 50" 1080p LED HDTV - LED50YC2000UA
Pros: It's inexpensive, and when it works, it gives you a real 1080p screen.
Cons: If you intend to use this with a computer, or care very much about recreating 1080p data, don't cheap out: don't buy this screen. You can't get a good black level, and you can't get rid of the hideous unsharp mask sharpening processing. This is unusable as a computer monitor or for any serious display purposes. The white halos around *every* detail were annoying after 2 seconds, and there's no way to get rid of them. Plus, the only way to get dark blacks is to turn down the LED backlight until nothing is bright at all---this is not a solution. This is just an overly-cheap TV. Save yourself some disappointment and spend $200 more for something real.
Other Thoughts: First one that I received was DOA (annoying and a waste of my time). Second one arrived a week later and works. But it's just a crummy screen. It lacks any control whatsoever over the auto-sharpening, which is very annoying and also makes it a deal-breaker for serious work.
If you plan to use this for TV-watching, it's probably going to be fine. The price is right, and it can't get much lower. So just ignore the ramblings of this critical (but apparently very cheap) video artist and get it.
I gave it 2 eggs instead of 1 because it works, and it actually shows you all 1920x1080 pixels, which is more than I can say for the UHD Seiki screens at 1080p.
Pros: Inexpensive, decent print quality, compatible with Linux with no hassles. Tech support phone number is answered 24/7, which is nice.
Cons: After 9 months, black simply stopped printing---not with the under-warranty starter cartridge, not with the HP-authentic 61XL cartridge that I bought as a backup (with a July 2012 expiry). Went through the entire troubleshooting list from the hp website. Tried to send a message through the website to tech support, but the site wouldn't recognize the product number, and then failed to send the message with som other error later. Now have spent the last hour on the phone with support.
Other Thoughts: This is my second review of this printer, and my opinion has obviously deteriorated. I don't expect to buy another HP product again. Consumer products are becoming a waste of my time.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Logitech G330 3.5mm/ USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset
Pros: I'm a fan of good audio quality, and I was very impressed at how good these sounded. Even over Skype, the audio is excellent. Also, they are comfortable. I forget I'm wearing them some times. The cable splits to two jacks (if you want to use mic and phones 1/8" ports) and the package contains a box that muxes them together again for use in the USB port.
Cons: Can't think of any.
Other Thoughts: I use this every week (or more often) at work, and have been pleased with the quality each time.READ FULL REVIEW
