Cons: I saw somewhere these were advertised as enhanced bass. There is no bass. Instead they are enhanced treble. The cord is so stiff that the folds from rolling it up for storage are permanent. This greatly shortens the length, and any head movement pulls the earbuds out of your ears. Tightly adjusting the memory wire around your ear has no effect preventing them from being dislodged. Luckily they were only $7 or $8, so it's not a big loss.
Overall Review: I have a Mxcder Over The Ear BT headphone. It has great sound, is comfortable and the battery lasts at least 15 hours. Based on my experience with the BT headphone, I expected a lot more from these. Unfortunately, I was significantly disappointed. I cannot recommend these to someone else.
Pros: High capacity
Cons: Noticeable bump on both sides of battery. RAVPower acknowledged a defect.
Overall Review: Returned for refund.
Pros: I've been using PaintShop Pro since it was a Jasc product and find it a great, low cost alternative to Photoshop. I like the fact that Corel has retained a lot of what Jasc started, and has added new features. I'm very happy with the program. Corel has released an update (SP1) that installed over X4 without a problem.
PaintShop Pro is a great alternative to Photoshop and costs considerable less.
Cons: Corel has created a confusing registration process if you've installed the trial but bought the program elsewhere. The process is complicated by Corel using serial number and activation number interchangeably. See below on how to install the full version if you have the trail version installed.
Overall Review: To solve the problem. I tried installing the full version over the trial. The installer asked if I wanted to uninstall the previous installation (or the trial?). I let installer uninstall the trial. After the trial was gone, I attempted to install the full version but it wouldn't work because the installation folder was locked by the uninstaller. I rebooted, ran the installer and the installation went fine. At the end, you're asked for the "serial number", which is labeled "activation number" on the inside of the CD case. I think you can also use the Windows Uninstaller to get rid of the trial before installing the full version.
Pros: I've been using PaintShop Pro since it was a Jasc product and find it a great, low cost alternative to Photoshop. I like the fact that Corel has retained a lot of what Jasc started, and has added new features.
Cons: The program is useless because there is no serial number. Corel's help video says the serial number should be on the order confirmation email or online receipt. I think Corel believes they are the only ones selling their product. There is no serial number in NewEgg's confirmation email, and the online "receipt" is an invoice with no serial number.
