This review is from: Eagle ET-ARHP200BF-BR Black/Red Foldable Bluetooth Stereo Headset
Pros: When it works, it works well
OK sound quality - if you're an audiophile obviously these aren't for you
They look pretty good
Cons: Too tight when first received, but they eventually become too loose
Other Thoughts: I just ordered my third pair of these. Not because they are so amazing, but because they are cheap enough that I pretty much consider them disposable. The first pair physically broke at the top, although that was my fault from being too rough with them. Before that point they barely stayed on my head because they'd gotten so loose from frequent wearing. They still worked, but really couldn't stay on any more.
The second pair started to malfunction a few days ago. It wouldn't power on unless plugged in, and when it did power on the left ear wasn't producing sound. They had only lasted ~6 months, so since they were still under warranty, I contacted the manufacturer. Apparently this model has not been produced for some time, so they can't replace or service them. They offered me a different set of headphones, but it was wired. I wasn't interested. I just decided to grab another pair because I do like these a lot when everything is working.
Basically, just consider these disposable and you'll be fine. They'll work for a while then stop, and if you like them you can get another pair fairly cheaply.
This review is from: GIGABYTE Model GC-WB867D-I (ver. 2) Bluetooth 4.0/WiFi Expansion Card
Pros: The Wifi usually works fairly well, though I have had it cut out a few times.
Cons: The Bluetooth functionality is very poor. It cannot hold a connection to my Bluetooth headset, when all my other Bluetooth devices have no problem doing so. When it disconnects, I have to unpair and re-pair the devices, or in extreme cases reinstall the driver.
Other Thoughts: If you are getting this for the Bluetooth functionality, you may want to look elsewhere.READ FULL REVIEW
Comes with everything needed
Cons: A few minor cons. As the previous reviewer mentioned, this has only a dual-core Pentium 4 3.0 GHz processor, rather than the stated 3.2 GHz. I am not concerned about this, no noticeable difference between 3.0 and 3.2. There was a sticky spot near the Win7 COA, and the hard drive is somewhat noisy. As I said, all minor, but worth noting.
Other Thoughts: The computer arrived in fine condition with all the necessary cables. It started up OK, though on the first startup it counts the RAM, which takes some time, and the time and date were not set. You go through the usual Windows setup and type in the product key, which works, but when you get to the desktop you have the black desktop and the counterfeit Windows warnings. Once you get online and activate the key you're fine, though. This PC comes with a special version of Win7 specifically for refurbished computers. Mine had a Windows XP COA still on it too.
As the "ownership" area indicates, I literally JUST got this, so I can't speak to reliability. I intend to get a couple more for some basic kiosks I'm setting up which will be on all day, so we'll see how they hold up.
