This review is from: Xbox One 500GB The Lego Movie Console Bundle
Pros: After reading many reviews for all consoles I was a little worried that if anything went wrong I would be doomed since I am a complete "Newbie old man".... Therefore I was wildly happy when everything went well right down to finding my Wireless connection except.....the first time sign up update process. It just wouldn't accept my birthday from my Microsoft account, no how no way. Had to create an Outlook account or I would still have wonderful console that Microsoft wouldn't let me use (see below). Having solved that problem everything worked perfectly from that point on. Being a total novice at gaming I am still learning the basics that everyone else knows so I can't comment on how it compares to others. IT WORKS! Apparently if I can get passed the 30 day period when most failures occur I'll be a happy boy.
Cons: During the setup I found It just wouldn't accept my birthday from my Microsoft account, no how no way. Had to create an Outlook account or I would still have a wonderful console that Microsoft wouldn't let me use. Didn't think that one would not be able to skip the online aspect of the game and just start the game that it came with, but I didn't see any way to do that.... Just my opinion.
Other Thoughts: Wish I had bought one 10 years ago when this old brain was still working :).READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vilano Aluminum Road Bike Commuter Bike Shimano 21 Speed 700c, Medium (54cm) - Black
Pros: Bought this from Newegg about a year ago and I have had very good luck with it. Very light compared to my Schwinn grocery bike :) I am riding this every day for about 10 miles and am improving every week I have had no down time with it and although I'm a fair bike mechanic those skills haven't been needed. Once properly adjusted you should have no grief. I assembled it in about 30 minutes. Don't remember needing any of my specialized tools for the assembly either. I am an old sucker so I chose to buy a flat bar instead of the drop bar included. It's been that way for most of the time I've had it. Finally, the most important part....you can look reasonably cool while riding it!
Cons: Just remember what you paid for it....it's not $4K bike.
Other Thoughts: I would recommend to a beginner or somebody upgrading from their WM bike.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Vilano TUONO Aluminum Road Bike - 21 Speed Shimano 54cm Medium - Black
Pros: Nice bike for the money. It's got every thing the more expensive bikes have, just heavier. This, however only weighs 25 pounds. My first bike weighed 50 so it's not heavy to me. If it's going to be your first bike it will seem light. It has indexing on the rear derailleur but not on the front. That does not bother me at all. It means you don't have to adjust it regularly.
Assembly: Well it wasn't any problem for me but it wasn't my first. If you are reasonably mechanical you shouldn't have much trouble. The "owners manual is only good to teach you the basics. It appears they have one "owners manual" that's supposed to cover all their bikes. Therefore assembly is up to you or your LBS (Local bike shop). If you're looking for a First Road bike it's not a bad choice.
Cons: No reasonable Owners Manual
Other Thoughts: So far so good. If anything changes I will try to comment here again.READ FULL REVIEW
