This review is from: HP 05A Replacement Toner by Polaroid - Black Cartridge, Hewlett Packard CE505A
Pros: Came in a professional looking box. Has a brand name on it. Print seems clean and clear. No squeaks or binding. So far so good.
Cons: Remanufactured toners can be hit or miss. Was I lucky and got a good one? Are they all good. Can't tell from just one but I'll order another and see. (I use a lot of remanufactured toners during tax season for printing drafts so my expectations are low and it lets me test these out.)
Other Thoughts: It's too bad the OEM's are so expensive and that the remanufacturing of these toners is so variable among the companies. I print a lot so I keep trying to cut costs but my final docs have to look good too. I always keep an OEM as a backup...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Xplova XA-HR1 Heart Rate Monitor (HRM), ANT+ Wireless
Pros: Lightweight, comfortable, works.
Cons: Main computer unit kills this deal.
ANT+ is being replaced by bluetooth which draws less juice.
Other Thoughts: This unit appears to be a rebranded unit similar to the others on teh market, but that's ok.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Xplova E5 - GPS Cycling Computer
Pros: Small, lightweight bicycle computer. OK looking.
Paired ok with the heart rate belt and sensors.
Felt cool at first trying a new item just introduced in the US.
Cons: The buttons on the side of the unit are toggles for some reason, and are cheap plastic held in place by small connectors inserted in tiny rubber grommets. They do not hold and the button/toggle pops out when it is used - will surely be lost when riding.
The unit does not sync with the online site for transferring/changing height/weight etc. even though it is supposed to.
This was labelled as a "standard" package. Not supposed to include the speed cadence sensor. NewEgg agreed with that - I ordered the sensor - it was already included - I received the"advanced" package - frustrating.
There is a painful amount of button pushing to scroll through menus and set this up. The instructions are online and incomplete. Setting the time zone was by guesswork.
There is no mention of a mileage trip meter although it appears to have a tiny one at the top right. No way to be sure of that.
The recording/lap function is very strange\unintuitive and mostly unexplained.
Software update did not complete as stated in manual. Seemed to work though.
The screen is only 1 inch high - I knew that but it is smaller than you think.
The description on New Egg is awful. Why these marketplace sellers don't make the effort to put up some info is beyond me. The manufacturer does not respond to questions submitted through New Egg.
Other Thoughts: Well, I'd say don't do it. The buttons popping off alone is enough to kill the deal, and if you don't have patience for figuring a lot out on your own, forget it. The inability to sync correctly with the site was a nice touch too. NewEgg was ok with the return but I have to stop wasting money on postage on bad items. Someone else can try the next new thing first!READ FULL REVIEW
