Pros: I used one to back up my music for use in the car. As my desktop only has USB 2.0, I really can't judge speed ne way or the other. That said, it did the job. The price was good.
Cons: n/a really
Pros: Price - Easy set up - Exceeded expectations for the price
Cons: Mouse works fine - slightly different "feel" from the one I've been using
Pros: Very good support
Easy to live with
Cons: Have to put it together - but, it was pretty easy.
Some of the bolts need tightening from time to time (blame the mechanic)
Overall Review: I had an Ekornes "Stressless" desk chair for year. Finally had to be put down nut, I was unwilling to pay near $1,000. (or anything NEAR that figure) to replace. Did get a "traditional" businessman's desk chair at Staples but it wasn't greatly comfortable (just, over-stuffed) and did NOT hold up.
This one is "just about right" for my purposes. I've had it for 6 months now. I'm not a GAMER and my daughter cracks up every time she sees me in the chair - but it's a solid for the many hours I use it daily.
Pros: Compact - Great picture - Portability - Can use external power (Car and Battery pack)
Cons: Need read directions - then, trial and error
Overall Review: Used as dash cam and "walking" recorder during recent trip to Italy. Even as a handhold (with external battery pack) - got hours and hours of terrific video. PS Some good website /forums for help and ideas.
Pros: Nice compact size - Certainly inexpensive (but not cheap IMHO).
Overall Review: I purchased it for an external power supply for my Mobius camera. I'm not even certain if this was an intended purpose (or I was using the proper output) but, I used it for hours at a time during a recent vacation. PS: I don't think the Mobius uses much power because it the RAV still showed "4 Bars" after several hours use.. YMMV
Pros: Been using S&T (and Auto Trip Europe) for years - I love maps and planning a trip is half the fun.
Cons: No support for GPS on Windows 8
Overall Review: I realize the write-ups don't suggest the GPS will work on Win 8 but it never occurred to me that it wouldn't. I bought the new edition in anticipation of upgrading to a Win 8 touch screen laptop.. Apparently, Win 8 doesn't "see" a USB as a GPS device port.
To make matters worse, MS is essentially silent on their so-called "support" forums on this glaring omission.
PS: I don't usually post negative review ('cause often enough the poster is the problem)or If anyone knows a work-around (or, if I'm the problem) I'll be happy to update my review.
Pros: Acceptably comfortable and does't slip-off.
Cons: I don't usually write "bad" reviews - especially for stuff that costs almost nothing $hipped. I mean, it cost less Nine freaking dollars.
I bought this to replace a buckwheat pillow I've had (and used daily) for years. There's something about the weight of buckwheat that sits on the shoulder/neck area that works well - for me.
While this one sits - fairly comfortably - I've found the red dye bleeds onto my shirt collars.
I would have been happy to launder / soak out the offending dye but, the cover is not removable. I would be reluctant to throw the whole thing into the washing machine.
I hope it doesn't take more than a couple washings to "fix" the damage.
Pros: The Seiko watch is as nice as I expected.
I opted for "Free Shipping" and they use the USPS and, as usual, their "Tracking info" is unreliable. (What do you expect for FREE?) That said, only took a few days.
Lastly (just FYI), the band (apparently) requires a "special" tool for sizing. It doesn't have the pins most bands of this type use. Not every jeweler has the tool, so, call ahead to make sure.
Pros: This works EXACTLY as I had hoped. - Better than expected.
I'm running a Win 7 and a new refurbed XP-Pro box and wanted to, of course, run my HANNS-G 28" monitor and my wireless keyboard.
Everything was pretty much plug-and-play. Took a bit for each computer to configure the mouse and the keyboard but, perfect since.
Clean and simple (Like Me).
Cons: None really. I'll have to figger' something that will allow me to run my printer from both boxes - then Ill be pleased - fon a while<G>..
Pros: 6 nice LED flashlists and 18 AAA batteries for $10. bux delivered - What's not to like? They work (well 5 of 6 did - 1 was missing a spring in the battery bay - No biggee)
Of course, they're cheap but, they are very useful.
Cons: None really
Pros: Knives are actually pretty good quality (not cheaply constructed). The storage block is solid and steady and a nice handy size next to my cooking surface. I'm a sucker for "Free Shipping" Don't know how they do it.
Cons: none really
Pros: They were cheap. The sound is fine. I use them on my desktop and a laptop that has a lousy soundboard. No vigorous outdoor use.
Cons: I taped the the area where the wires enter the earbuds 'cause I'm sure the wire would pull-out pretty easily.
Oddest thing- The plastic covering on the wire has cracked in several places.
They still work OK but, it's probably only a matter of time.
Overall Review: Bottom line: What can you expect for under Ten Dollars? Don't know how much better quality wire could possibly add to the price but, MEEE (IMHO) will develop (or continue?) a "cheap" reputation with a quality level like this.
Pros: Quality and size - WAW SIZE DOES MATTER - of image!
Cons: None really (other reviews lowered my expectations for sound - I'll use my old Bose Wave radio)
Overall Review: So-called documentation is pretty minimal. That said, other than figuring how to adjust brightness (I'll use a forum to get it right)
