Most Favorable Review

Works As Expected

Pros: Charges my 3DS, plugs into any USB. Sufficiently long for all sorts of uses.

Cons: So far no cons.

Overall Review: The 3DS did make my computer pop up a "USB was disabled because it's draining too much power." This is not the fault of the cable or the computer, but simply because the amount being drained from the computer is more than most USB devices.

Good Enough

Maxi-Matic EKA-9210SS Stainless Steel 4-Slice Toaster Oven Broiler
Maxi-Matic EKA-9210SS Stainless Steel 4-Slice Toaster Oven Broiler

Pros: Has 4 options: toast, broil, bake, and off. Fairly inexpensive.

Cons: No temperature control. A little difficult to clean. Drip/baking pan doesn't support putting aluminium on too well. The back of the oven toasts significantly better than the front.

Overall Review: For this price, especially on sale, it's a pretty ok deal. However, if I were shopping again, I would prefer to pay the extra $10 to get something with a temperature control. Also the top of the oven gets extremely hot (to the point of melting plastic), but this is expected and has a sticker to show that.

So Useful that I Keep 2 Around

Fellowes 99090 6.0 Feet 8 Outlets 1300 Joules Mighty Surge Protector Black Color
Fellowes 99090 6.0 Feet 8 Outlets 1300 Joules Mighty Surge Protector Black Color

Pros: This surge protector has multiple plugs with a great layout. I almost never have trouble putting oversized plugs in. I believe at one point, I had 2 routers, 3 computers, a phone, and a modem plugged into it without having to really think about any major adjustments to what's already plugged in. Long enough cord for majority of purposes, and very compact. I always leave one at home and travel with another one, especially if I expect any shortage of outlets.

Cons: The plug of the surge protector has the table leading downwards. If you are unable to plug it into a bottom outlet, that poses a problem. However, this is usually avoidable if you just swap outlets.

Overall Review: I've been using my 2 surge protectors for nearly 4 years, and they have never failed me. One of them does have a flickering light for the actual switch, but hardly a complaint from me for 3+ years of constant use.
