Pros: - Cheap
- They physically fit into my HP Photosmart 5520.
Cons: When I first installed them ink was smearing on every print. At times it was a puddle. I thought this was a huge waste of money. Then when they did print, the font was grey instead of black. Also, the printer will annoy you that you're a dummy for not using authentic HP cartridges.
Other Thoughts: However, I decided to print 30+ pages of text to exercise the demons. It appeared to get through them without bleeding and the font was dark as it should be. So I continue to hold my breath that these might work out for me.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.
