Pros: These headphones are lightweight, have comfortable soft on-ear pads, decent upper bass response.
Paired with my DROID 4, they play fine with my phone in my pocket or on the other side of the next room.
Cons: Sound occasionally skips for a fraction of a second, the headband moves the earpieces when moving one's head, the mid and lower bass suffers due to lack of earpad seal and suffers significant wind noise.
While generally comfortable, the plastic over the ears becomes less comfortable after a few hours.
Other Thoughts: My usual headphone listening is with a Sennheiser HD555 circumaural open ear unit paired with a FiiO E6 amp, but the 2m cord with 1/4" jack and huge 1/8" jack adapter plugged into the amp and connection to my phone doesn't work well when cycling, so I bought these.
For the price, it's a great deal and worth the compromises.
This review is from: Rosewill RLFL-11003 3W 220 Lumen Heavy-Duty 3 D-Cell LED Aluminum Flashlight
Pros: Quality materials and construction,
Very bright narrow light,
Attractive gunmetal finish,
Long time between battery changes,
Price when on sale.
Cons: These are considerations, not cons.
The beam is highly directional and focussed with no adjustment, so there is no easy way to use it for broad or area lighting. Rosewill has some nice small Cree LED flashlights with adjustable beams which take AAA batteries. I have four of them on my bike.
The batteries last a long time because they are three D cells which carry a lot of charge. These are heavy.
The switch is touch sensitive, which doesn't matter since you don't hold it with a finger on the switch.
Other Thoughts: I bought one after having liked the battery-consuming small Cree LED flashlights. After some months of light use, I wanted another and when it went on sale again I bought two and gave my first to family members.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Black & Decker CM1650B Black 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker
Pros: Cheap when discounted.
Nice dark finish with bright blue lights.
Hot plate timer feature.
Cons: The carafe spills liquid down the front during pouring while full (over ten cups) no matter how gently one pours.
Even with the carafe properly positioned, the jug sometimes fills with coffee due to the valve not releasing then spills coffee onto the hot plate and over the carafe when it's removed and replaced.
The overflow protection for both the water storage and the jug is a couple of holes out of which liquid will spill if the unit is moved while full.
This unit is no replacement for my decades old Black & Decker and is not worth the heavily discounted price offered recently.
Other Thoughts: The product is defective in several ways, each of which was described in the many feedback entries for this item when i bought it here. I note that now they have all disappeared, leaving only a single five star entry... on each of the two pages for the "Black & Decker CM1650B Black 12-Cup Programmable Coffee Maker".READ FULL REVIEW
