Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale-Retail
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Best suited for large stone countertops 02/13/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RKKS-12001 Digital Kitchen Scale-Retail

Pros: #1: Nice-looking (stainless and black) #2: Battery included

Cons: #1: The mechanism (non-moving top platform) depends on a having a very level surface (not old and wavy Formica). #2: Auto power-off after 60 seconds is too short – readings get lost when (ex. A: stop to get another onion then cut some more; ex. B: go to the store room to get another box of something then open it). #3: Display is in ounces only (e.g. 9 lbs. would read as 144 oz). #4: Large in size (7.85" x 5.70") with a space-wasting rectangular shape.

Other Thoughts: I replaced this with one that has a moving top platform, 2 minute auto power-off, and smaller size with a teardrop shape.

Electronic Digital LCD Kitchen Food Scale 5000g 5KG/1G
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

3 out of 5 eggs Best suited for small apartments 02/13/2014

This review is from: Electronic Digital LCD Kitchen Food Scale 5000g 5KG/1G

Pros: #1: The mechanism (moving top platform) does not depend on a having a very level surface (old and wavy Formica not a problem). #2: Auto power-off after 2 minutes is big plus – readings don't get lost when (ex. A: stop to get another onion then cut some more; ex. B: go to the store room to get another box of something then open it). #3: Small in size (6.5" x 5") with a space-saving teardrop shape.

Cons: #1: The buttons are very hard to press (in the neighborhood of 3 to 5 times more difficult than your typical microwave oven). #2: The display cover is very thin (about the thickness of the few pieces packing tape). The waviness can be seen. Actually, what covers the whole bowl-shaped silver area is merely an adhesive label. This started to bubble up in the front after less than two weeks. #3: The battery cover doesn't lay flat after inserting the AAA cells. #4: Batteries not included. #5: Color is gaudy white like typical cheap appliances.

Other Thoughts: For a few more dollars, this could have been a five star product.

Coboc 15 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Does exactly what I bought it for 01/29/2014

This review is from: Coboc 15 ft. gold plated, High speed HDMI to HDMI A/V Cable (Black)

Pros: This cable provided a flawless picture when playing a Blu-ray movie disc from a Windows 8.1 laptop to a 46 inch LCD HDTV (that's four years old).

Cons: None (regarding the cable itself)

Other Thoughts: My major complaint is what Newegg is doing to the rating system – clumping together different items into one egg rating. In this case, it's five different lengths of cable – as of the date of this writing, the Top Favorable Review is from the 6 ft. model while the Top Critical Review is from the 25 ft. model (anyone surprised?). I guess Newegg expects me to sift through 428 reviews and find the ones noted "… 15 ft." then average them manually. I've also seen this practice on a desktop power supply with different output ratings and USB hubs (plural meaning USB 2.0 and 3.0 models bunched together). However, where it should be done it isn't – hard drive enclosures, just different in color, are being rated separately.
