Overall Review: Well priced from a major brand. Have used before and is recognized by Windows and Mac systems. Much faster than standard HDs. 3 year warranty, have not used long enough to comment on longevity but have had no performance issues in meantime.
Pros: Great price on a like new refurbished unit with full 1 year warranty made me take the plunge and could not be happier. Easy to fly, very stable and rugged build (survived hard crash with no damage, my fault) and takes excellent and stable video and stills. Flying range and reception is much greater than advertised, I fly in NYC and have never had any flyaway or return to home issues. Live video reception is clear and stable. Controls are simple and intuitive. I added some clip on landing gear to expand the footprint and removable prop guards for a total of around $40.00 but otherwise is stock. Only difference with the other Phantom models is their greater range and 4K video but for typical use the P3 is more than enough. You will not be disappointed.
Cons: Second battery costs about $100.00 when on sale, make sure it is genuine DJI, clones are too risky.
Get clear on setting the flying modes switch so you always fly using GPS after quick preflight compass calibration.
Not safe for indoor flying, but who would really want to.
Pros: Very nice and even sound. Bass is not boomy and highs do not sizzle.
Cons: The cord is short, which is OK if you want them for portable devices you will have in your pocket or inflight movies but for stereo listening or music production monitoring restricts your movement. Also does not come with 1/4" headphone jack adapter.
Overall Review: If you are looking for portable device listening they are great.
Pros: Sturdy and well built. Light is bright and adjustable zoom gives a very wide angle of illumination. Excellent for repair work since it easily floods a 10ft circle area. Only issue was included 18650 battery was a bit long and made the power button difficult to work. Weiita support is aware that included battery is a tad long and sending a shorter 18650 replacement battery free of charge with free shipping. Great to see a company stand behind their product like that. This may not be an issue to new buyers since the correct length battery will be probably already issued but in case the solution is simple enough.
Cons: Since battery issue was quickly resolved, none.
Overall Review: As a whole good flashlight to have, the price is very reasonable and the support solid.
Pros: Very bright lighting with great positioning options. Can be well secured as magnet base is strong and includes a metal hook for hanging. Well built, batteries last since LED's do not draw much power but give out ample light. Good design and build.
Cons: None. Purchased while on sale and a great value.
Overall Review: Wish I would have purchased 2 more while on sale. Great to have one in the car.
Pros: Potent light, a bit on the wide dispersion side but that is good as it makes for excellent overall illumination. Have not tested it's weather resistance but seems sealed enough for basic outdoor use.
Cons: Not as thick walled as a Maglite but for the price better than expected.
Overall Review: A very good buy for home, car and general outdoor use. Would not recommend for security, law enforcement or extreme outdoor situations but in general a much better than average flaslight.
Pros: Shipping was quick.
Cons: Did not work, drive would spin up and shut down after 15 seconds. Took a chance despite the warnings in reviews. Obviously a defective design problem with this model, Western Digital is otherwise a reputable company but think they should reimburse for return shipping when a pattern of failure has been established with a specific model. Lost $11.00 on the return shipping costs.
