1EG-MBK Metallic Black 39-Inch Electric Guitar Package w/ Gig Bag, Picks, Strap & More (Full Size)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Inexpensive, and suitable for my needs as an absolute beginner.

Cons: I've run into two issues within my ~2 weeks of ownership:

1. The included strap was not quite long enough to let me comfortably position the instrument. I'm a bit taller than your average person (just under 6'2") so this may not be an issue for more normal sized people. Furthermore, the discomfort may have been related to my inexperience.

Regardless, as I struggled to find a comfortable position, the slider that allows you to take in the slack on the strap broke. No huge loss, as I had not intended to use anything less than the maximum length. A couple days later, however, the strap completely severed at the point where it anchors to the guitar. I've since replaced the strap with a longer version, acquired elsewhere.

2. While learning a new song, I noticed that one note continually sounded wrong. I ensured that the string was in tune, and all other fretted notes along that string rang clear. All was in good order, except for that note (2nd string, 11th fret.)

Did some further testing, and found two other notes that buzzed, rather than sounding clear. Research has indicated that parts of the fret bars are a bit too high, making it impossible for those notes to be played properly.

Alas, it seems that the broken strap prevents me from getting a free replacement through the supplier, so I will either choose to learn songs that don't use the bad notes (not too difficult, as the other notes aren't immensely popular in the types of songs I am learning) or pay out of pocket for repairs at a local store.

Other Thoughts: I know the cons section was long, but I would still recommend this for a beginner. Hard to find full sized guitars at this price.

BYTECC BT-370 3-in-1 USB 2.0 to Standard SATA, Slim and Micro SATA Adapter
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 3 in 1 design

Cons: Did not work

Other Thoughts: Just picked one of these up from a local electronics store. It does not work at all. It is not detected on any of my USB ports, all of which I have verified as working. I'm not saying all of these are bad, but it seems that the majority of users can't seem to get them working.

Honeywell Altura MLX 42
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

4 out of 5 eggs So far, so good 06/11/2009

This review is from: Honeywell Altura MLX 42" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV MT-HWJCT42B2AB

Pros: Size to price ratio.

Cons: Number of connections, especially audio.

Small patch of lazy pixels, that show up dark blue instead of black. Only noticeable when the screen is totally black, and only at close distances. While watching this set from 4-5' away, I have to strain my eyes to see them.

Other Thoughts: This is a great for the price. The contrast ratio is far beyond other models in this range. Picture is sharp and clear, with detailed black levels.

This machine doesn't have a huge number of connections.

Delivery was faster than I expected, 39 hours from placement of order to my door.

Overall, I'd say this is a great set for anyone looking to enter into the world of HD. Unfortunately, the TV arrived before my HD cable box, so I can't judge that quality, but it looks stunning when hooked up to my PC (through a DVI > HDMI converter jack) with both games and B-Ray.
