This review is from: Precision One 7853 Removable Remote Glass LCD Digital Body Fat Scale
Pros: Attractive unit with digital readout
Cons: I purchased this to be used primarily as a scale for daily weight checking. Unfortunately, the readout reliability varies by as much as +/- 2 pounds making the scale inadequate for this purpose.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The unit produces a good picture. Telephone tech support is responsive and USA based. HDMI output and RCA output for audio work together.
Cons: The menu will show up on top of whatever channel was last selected. This can be annoying but resolved by switching to a blank channel. The daily scheduling option is for all seven days. There is no weekday scheduling option. I found that my unit got confused when trying to schedule successive days when the program went over the date line. (i.e. 2300 to 0100) There is no chase capability. If you want to watch a program that you have recorded, you have to wait until it has finished recording. The documentation is in small print and could be a lot better but that seems to be the norm now-a-days.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this unit on sale and was amazed at how much bang for the buck that I got. The unit handles the lower channels from my cable service --2,4,5,7,9,11,13 &21 plus sub channels. I'd be thrilled to find a similar unit, hopefully with the cons above worked out, that would handle all of the cable channels. I'm sure that they can do it. Also, oddly enough, a lot of the procedures and info provided make sense only to the technically inclined; Joe TV watcher isn't going to be able to handle this. But then again, this is becoming true for a lot of this stuff.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COBY Alarm Clock/Radio For iPod CSMP120
Pros: see other thoughts
Cons: see other thoughts
Other Thoughts: The radio has a nice compliment of features and a quality level that would only be expected in a more expensive piece of equipment. The radio has excellent sensitivity. The tuning, as is the case with a lot of contemporary radios, lacks the tuning vernier that makes tuning easy but it can gotten used to. I'd also like to have seen a brighter tuning indicator. The FM antenna supplied is just a piece of dangling wire. It does work better than something wrapped up inside the box but is a bit tacky. These are only minor complaints. I have no plans for the iPod input so it would have been nice if a plug cover was supplied so as to keep out the dust. I'll put something together. I expressly planned to use the headphone output to drive a pillow speaker. This worked fine. I was surprised to see such a strong volume level and sound quality and the size of the brick powering the unit. This is a healthy power supply. The clock numerals are certainly large; no need to fumble for glasses to read these numbers! Over all, this is a nice clock radio that well serves the function without being costly.READ FULL REVIEW
