Hamilton Beach 33966 Silver 6 Qt. Set 'n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Not a good experience 04/17/2014

This review is from: Hamilton Beach 33966 Silver 6 Qt. Set 'n Forget Programmable Slow Cooker

Pros: It's programmable

Cons: It's programmable and you can't trust it

Other Thoughts: Had this over a year and only used it 20 times. We wasted about 3 meals near the end of it's short life. It would not fully cook meals after 6-8 hours. Then finally on the last chicken cook it just died and never got hotter than warm. I contacted Hamilton Beach and although it was just out of warranty the most they offered was to sell me anything on their site for 50% off plus, tax/shipping which came to more money than buying from other online retailers. I told them I would never buy HB again as selling somebody something that only works 20 times is disgraceful.

Pros: I've looked extensively for a 15 inch laptop with the following criteria:
1. 1080 x 1920 screen resolution
2. Touchscreen to take advantage of Win 8
3. Between $500 - $600
4. At least an Intel I5 or better processor.

There are only 2 in this class unless you order directly from HP and upgrade the screen to 1080, but that will cost you about $700. The only other laptop close to this one is the Toshiba P55t-A5202, found at Best Buy or you may find a variation of it elsewhere.

As for this ASUS, it is gorgeous and the display is exactly what I wanted. Viewing angles are awesome and the screen is so bright and vibrant that I have to turn it down to nearly 50%. Most laptops you have to turn up to 90-100% in this price range.

Cons: - First Win 8 PC and the learning curve is more like a learning cliff. This OS makes little sense. It was buggy and annoying under Win 8 and I hope Win 8.1 will make some improvement. I think most of the issues are a Win 8 problem and not the laptop's fault.

- The laptop is made with a metalic charcoal color which absorbs oils from your hands, but I knew that going in.

- From what I can tell they don't make this model anymore. I got it refurbed for $520 and it looks brand new.

- Camera isn't great (I think 1 MP) but I wasn't that concerned with it.

Other Thoughts: I bought 1 year warranty just to make sure I am covered. For $520, spending $90 more seemed like a sound plan in case the refurb has issues.

So far I am extremely happy with the purchase.

Dell Venue 8  - Intel Atom Z2580 Dual Core 2GB RAM 32GB Flash 8.0

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Price
Screen Brightness
No Bloatware
8' Display

Cons: Lack of accessories, though this is changing.
Speaker quality is not stellar

Other Thoughts: I bought 3 of these for $149 each and for that price there is no tablet better on Earth. Coming from Samsung Tab 2 (7 inch) to this was a significant upgrade. The Samsung tablet was 8GB but they have so much bloatware that the tablets only had about 3.8 GB available for use right out of the box and adding a SSD card was only good for music and pictures and not for apps. The Dell Venue is a blank canvas for apps and with 32Gb of memory you are getting almost all of that for use.
