This review is from: PNY Optima SSD7SC240GOPT-RB 2.5" 240GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
Pros: Not really a lot to say - works, has had no problems since I bought it about a month ago. At least as fast as the 90 GB I was replacing (and put in my laptop). Nice to have the room to not have to worry about where I install programs. Still have my 2 TB drive for media. Didn't run any official speed test, but Win 7 still shows the same rating as my prev. one. I suspect the difference between "super fast" $150+ drives and this wouldn't be detectable by me. And if rebate comes through, < $100 makes hard to beat.
Cons: Rebates. Normally I hate them because who's going to keep track of them for 2 months to see if they come in? But when the $ w/o rebate is still good, it becomes less of a pain if they don't. Only real downside is PNY has apparently a newer version for nearly the same price. No idea what the difference is - but I'm happy with this.
Other Thoughts: If I were to buy now, I'd go for the XLR8 I expect. About $10 more isn't a lot to pay for an updated one - though I've no idea what the difference is. But for the price of lunch, I guess I'd prefer to have the latest and greatest.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PLANTRONICS M50 Bluetooth Headset
Pros: Pretty comfortable. Volume sufficient. Long battery life and quick recharge.
Cons: I may be a bit sensitive - or my ears may just not be made for headsets. But it does get a bit annoying after an hour or so. I can't, however, blame it on the headset as they probably ALL would get annoying and this likely less than most.
Other Thoughts: This is my first bluetooth headset ever and I've been very happy with it. But that also means I have no experience with any others, which renders my review somewhat less than ideal. Still, I'd happily buy another. Plantronics is a name I've very familiar with, having worked in the telco industry, and I do trust their products as they've been building headsets for DECADES so they probably know what they're doing by now!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Still an awesome value for the hardware!
Cons: Can't replace battery (well, not via user-acceptable procedures. Can always disassemble). Confirmed by tech support.
Other Thoughts: Just a quick update to my review of this phone now that I've had it for a while. I still give it 5 because the value is so good, but:
A - Battery is NOT user-removable (heard back from their tech support). In theory you could disassemble the phone though. Appears previous BLU Play Life version (with plastic back cover instead of aluminum) allowed that. That's a step in the wrong direction IMHO.
B. I said it wasn't blue. In the proper light, it does have a slight very dark blue to it. But most would just call it black or dark grey. Still looks good though.
Their documentation clearly states to remove the battery when replacing SIM/SD cards, but that's impossible so it needs updating. But if iPhones can get away with a non-removable battery, I can't really ding BLU for it with this cheap of a phone! I still remain quite happy with my phone, but honestly I think the longevity of the phone is limited since the battery can't be changed (all batteries die eventually as evidenced by every laptop I've ever owned!)
So still 5 eggs with a caveat that it wouldn't be if the phone weren't such a danged good phone for the price! *And I wish Newegg let me edit my previous review after some time goes by and experience teaches buyers more about the products.
