Most Favorable Review

The one to get

POWEREX MH-C9000 Charger - Analyzer
POWEREX MH-C9000 Charger - Analyzer

Pros: All four slots are independent -- you can charge in one and condition in another, or use different capacity batteries in each slot. Can restore batteries that other charges have ruined. Charges batteries to much higher capacity than most chargers.

Cons: Slow. Conditioning new batteries, for example, takes about two days. There's no way to turn the bright white LED screen off, so you don't want this in your bedroom.

Overall Review: Saved two batteries for me that a 15 minute famous brand charger had ruined, and refused to charge. Fixed two other batteries that were running at around 30% of new capacity so they now run at around 70% of new capacity. The high cost of this charger is going to pay for itself quickly.

Most Critical Review

Only for OLD PSPs

SONY PSP Headphones with Remote Control
SONY PSP Headphones with Remote Control

Pros: Fast delivery by Newegg

Cons: As said by others, this is only for the OLD PSP 1000-series, which was replaced by the PSP 2000-series ("slim and lite") in August 2007. Also, it comes in a blister pack that has to be cut open before you find out that the plug doesn't fit, thus making it impossible to return.

Overall Review: I would have expected Newegg to note that this is ONLY compatible with the outdated PSP 1000-series, and not the current devices. When compatibility isn't specified, I would have expected compatibility with the current device.

Where to begin...

ASUS ROG Gladius Wired Optical Gaming Mouse, 6400 DPI, Steel Grey
ASUS ROG Gladius Wired Optical Gaming Mouse, 6400 DPI, Steel Grey

Pros: It comes with two USB cables. It doesn't have more buttons than needed. It comes with replacement switches, which is why I bought it.

Cons: Oh, where do I begin? Oh, build quality is a good start. Or lack thereof. The sliding soles had been haphazardly stuck on, missing the cut-out for them, so the sole edges actually stick up and snags the mouse pad. It comes with extras, but if I use them now, I won't be able to change the switches in the future, because the soles have to be removed to do that. The shorter of the USB cables is way too stiff for mouse use - the zig-zag pattern due to folding persists, and the cable kinks WILL catch on anything. The plastic squeaks when using it. I guess live mice squeak, but computer mice shouldn't.

Overall Review: The mouse is not usable for full hand use as advertised, unless you're a child. The switches are so light that the resting weight of adult male fingers will click them. And the back button is too far back to reach with adult hands. The advertised feature of the settings being stored in the mouse itself is misleading at best. The DPI switch appears to have no effect unless you use the mouse on a system with ROG Armoury installed. I had hoped that like my old Microsoft mouse (which isn't made anymore), the settings would REALLY be handled by the mouse, so the DPI switch would work in Linux or other computers without the ASUS software installed. Not so. This probably won't be a problem for most, but it also draws 150 mA, which is 50 more than delivered by old USB (1.0/1.1) ports. If you plan to use it on an older computer, or one where the ports don't deliver more than 100 mA while still in BIOS mode before the OS starts, you may need a powered hub. I'm also unsure about the DPI accuracy - this mouse moves less at 2400 DPI than my old did at 1600. There are no ferrite cores on either on the USB cables, which I'd expect for expensive mice. It means that if you also use your computer for audio work, you may want to unplug and use a different mouse while not gaming.

Unusable

Nippon Labs 25 ft. Premium 3.5mm Audio Stereo Speaker 25ft Cable M/M Model SPC-25MM 25 feet
Nippon Labs 25 ft. Premium 3.5mm Audio Stereo Speaker 25ft Cable M/M Model SPC-25MM 25 feet

Pros: Cheap. Black.

Cons: The cable is so thin and low quality that it's really unusable for its intended purpose: audio signals. The attenuation is really high, and the lack of shielding means it picks up noise.

Overall Review: It's too cheap to return. In reality, I bought a 25 foot string. I'm sure I can use it to tie something with.

Good, not great

Logitech G27 (941-000045) Racing Wheel
Logitech G27 (941-000045) Racing Wheel

Pros: Advanced steering wheel. Partially leather clad.

Cons: Obviously lower quality than the former MOMO wheel Logitech had. More buttons, but less weight and solid feel. Sharp edges on the aluminum paddles required filing down because they were sharp enough to cut fingers. The aluminum shield on the button panel is flapping because it's so loose - there's no way to fasten it; it's just bad tolerance values. The pedal set slides on smooth floors. The small rubber pads don't provide nearly enough traction, so unless you have a carpet and can use the carpet hooks, you need to place something behind the pedals to prevent them from sliding.

Overall Review: The bean counters have had a field day with this product. I really wish quality would improve with new models, not go down. I would gladly trade all the extra features like extra buttons and HUD switches for something simpler with higher quality. It's still one of the better wheels you can get, and the price is good for the tech you get, just not for the quality.

Stunning retro

Messerschmitt Radiant Blue Dial Special Edition Quartz Dress Watch KR200-BDBL
Messerschmitt Radiant Blue Dial Special Edition Quartz Dress Watch KR200-BDBL

Pros: This watch is just stunning. It has the classic look of expensive Swiss watches from the 60s, including a domed crystal, but a high quality modern quartz movement.

Cons: They don't sell the matching bracelet for this watch, nor spare wrist bands.

Overall Review: This is not a large watch - it's the same size as men's watches were in the 50s and 60s. That doesn't mean "boy's watch" - it means it's classy, not gaudy.

This seller - ships from private Chinese individuals. - packs watches in boxes that don't fit the watch. - packs watches with wrong instructions. - packs inadequately for international shipping (a thin unpadded plastic bag). - misstates the value of the shipped product on the customs form.

Professional

Professional, good packaging, never a problem. The only improvement I could think of is if they started listing the lug width of the watches they sell, so customers can order bands or bracelets with the watches.
