Pros: Sound good, low frequency good when better earbud tips are used. Throw the included earbud tips in the garbage and get some better quality and fitting ones instead.
Cons: Poor sound quality, poor base response, little base presence.
Overall Review: After trying these earbuds I originally gave them a poor review due to poor sound reproduction, poor low-frequency response, inadequate base. Well, I decided to try some Sony earbud tips I had around that fit properly and are slightly longer in length than the originally included tips. Made lots of positive difference. I was very disappointed in these earbuds but now using the Sony tips instead they have improved these earbuds pretty dramatically, sounding much better now.
Pros: Everything including price.
Overall Review: Installed 16 gb in a new ASROCK B450 GAMING K4 with absolutely no issues with overclocking what so ever. Stupidly easy to OC.
PC Benchmark test claims 15% faster performance than expected for this product running at 3200 MHz with AMD 2600.
Pros: I normally wouldn't rate this item as a 5 but for the price it's quite good quality. Good heavy wire insulation, plug and jack fit tight and secure and are supposedly gold plated. I would buy this again.
Cons: As most Chinese items, shipping is very slow, this item is certainly no exception.
If your in no hurry for this item to be delivered it is worth the longer than usual wait considering the quality and inexpensive cost.
Pros: This product works well and as intended w/o issues or problems.
Was only $49.00
Perfect for my PC system.
I like the Powerchute settings application and that I can set the alarm to not sound at specific times such as at night.
Overall Review: I would recommend this item and I would definitely purchase it again for myself.
Pros: Good price for quality item.
Nice feel to this item, looks good and works very well which is all that really matters.
I just happened to need a new USB 3.0 hub and stumbled into this.
Thought I'ed take a chance based upon reviews elsewhere and low price.
Turned out to be a great item for me.
Fast speeds, very easy installation, windows 7 immediately recognized device and installed my existing Etron USB 3.0 drivers.
Cons: None yet
Overall Review: Item works well, installs easily and I would purchase again.
Pros: Excellent receiver, love the networking to my system, access to Pandora etc.
Plenty of connections.
This receiver works well and without issues for me but I don't use Apple AirPlay.
Cons: None for me
Pros: Quality sub that provided sweet, impressive exacting low end sound reproduction that enhances surround sound and music without the excessive, harsh and boomy unrealistic sounds so often heard from many other subs.
Provides very good/accurate low end sound reproduction with power to spare.
Provides the feel of great low end sound reproduction.
Wonderful with with movie playback or music.
For it's size and being placed on carpet, it has very impressive low-frequency response for movies and television. Crossover provides a clean cutoff.
It easily can be blended with any speaker set.
This sub is great plus I only paid $130.00 for it through Newegg.
Compared to the highly reviewed and rated Polk PSW10, well there just isn't any comparison as the Klipsch K100-sw reference sub just blows it away.
This sub compares far better to much more expensive quality subs.
Overall Review: I am very pleased with this item and without question would purchase this sub again.
Pros: Purchased for $79.99.
Cons: Regardless of many shining reviews, the PSW10 sounds muddy sounding to me.
Got this to add second sub but really does not compare to my Klipsch K-100SW is sound quality/definition or powerful reproduction you would expect from a subwoofer.
No LFE connection.
Below 35hz the sub bottoms out and there is awful port chuffing noise.
Cheap speaker cover
Overall Review: Better for music reproduction, not so much for home theater.
Pros: I think these are the best and most comfortable fitting, least obnoxious in the ear, ear plugs I have ever used.
Cons: These in the ear phones have the worst low end frequency reproduction of any ear plug I've ever owned.
I won't be using these much due to the poor sound reproduction so the ear plugs will be transferred to my Sennheiser CX 400-II phones.
Overall Review: No I wouldn't buy these again.
Buy Sony MDR-EX37B much much better full well rounded sound reproduction. About $12.00.
PS I wouldn't assume to get better reproduction due to a so called "burn in period".
Pros: Good quality, works well w/o problems or issues.
Only $13.99 free shipping.
Looks nice, low brightness blue light.
Overall Review: I've only used this a short time so a year down the road we'll see but so far everything is good and I would buy it again.
Pros: Excellent item, very fast when setup correctly.
Has been very reliable.
Easy installation, excellent migration/transfer software was provided with drive.
Actual drive read and write speeds provided were as advertised or better when drive setup correctly.
Very fast boot times.
Overall Review: Have used this SSD pretty heavily for video copy and transfer work in addition to gaming and typical everyday use.
Item has been in almost use for over 17 months with absolutely no problems or issues with the drive.
This was a excellent purchase for me and would certainly purchase a Samsung drive again.
Pros: Liked using this item as long as it lasted.
Cooking was pretty fast, faster and cooler than using the oven for single person meals.
Reading the reviews I was lucky since
my unit lasted just over a year before the cooking element failed.
Just barely lasted the 1 year warranty period.
After I throw out the cooking unit I can at least keep the glass bowl enclosure as it should be good for something.
Cons: Non user replaceable heating element.
Not worth the return shipping costs when unit fails.
Overall Review: This oven was used pretty lightly maybe once or twice a week with a 45 min per week run time max.
Unit is not long lasting.
Would not recommend to anyone due to short lifespan even though I did like the item while it lasted.
Any warranty that does not include return shipping after item failure is totally worthless.
Pros: Card is plenty fast for music and video purposes particularly considering the price I paid.
I use this for digital video recording, playback using a USB adapter and even for music playback in my car stereo.
Couldn't be happier.
Overall Review: Would definitely buy another of these.
It's absolutely the fastest SDHC card I've ever ever used for the $14.00 I paid for it.
Cons: Unreliable Noisy, weak, fails easily
Overall Review: Lasted about 4 months with light use.
Typically only use once a month to shred previous months bank statement. No envelopes or staples.
Did shred one credit card in 4 month period.
Pros: This drive was a gift so for me it was free.
It runs quiet, stores lots of data, works continuously w/o complaint or problem.
I have a WD My Book 3TB USB 3.0 and and Seagate 2 TB USB 3.0 and this Toshiba drive works just as well.
USB 3.0 cables are just like any other USB 3.0 drive cable and connections.
No better, no worse than WD or Seagate drives or cables.
Fast USB 3.0 speeds.
If you screw the cables up somehow you just need be more careful.
I've had no problems with cable / connection issues.
Cons: None yet
This drive along with the WD My Book and Seagate USB 3.0 3TB drives are not worth anywhere near $170.00.
Overall Review: Had this drive for 3 months w/o any issues at all.This has been a good trouble free drive.
If anything I'ed say this drive access time is approximately the same speeds as my Seagate and WD 3.0 external drives, typically between 100 to 260 MB/second.
Pros: Great 2 TB drive for $80.00.
Fast, quiet, runs cool
4 stars as support seems light.
Cons: No cons
Overall Review: Would take the chance buy this drive again for $80.00.
Toshiba's support web site and registration needs help as it doesn't seem to offer much of anything as far as drives are concerned.
Hope this drive goes the 3 years w/o any problems as support looks to be a bit sketchy.
Pros: Very fast card, plays games like Alan Wake, Dirt 3, Metro 2033, Battlefield 3 at very to max high settings.
Cons: No cons for me.
Drivers installed and updated w/o a hitch.
Overall Review: Would certainly buy this card again.for the $110 I paid for it.
Pros: I purchased this drive 6 months ago (for 20 bucks less) and it has performed flawlessly and pretty fast.
The drive in mine is the Toshiba MQ01ABD100.
I use this mainly for video backup and playback.and it's been very good. It;s taken a couple of 3 to 4' drops onto vinyl covered wood floors without incident.
I can't speak for the backup software with the drive as I don't and never will use it.
Cons: None, it does what it's supposed to without complaint.
Overall Review: Would consider a 2GB drive when and if they make one.
Pros: Well built, quality look and feel .
Semi-Modular flat plastic coated cables look good but a a bit stiff.
Overall looks and feels like a high quality product.
Works as advertised.
Cons: One of the SATA power connectors plastic shield easily broke during installation, maybe my fault but possibly the plastic was defective or already cracked. Never had that happen before.
The power supply fan frequently has a medium to low pitched variable whine that occurs for no apparent reason. The fan speed seems to vary slightly slower than normal when the whining begins and then speeds up slightly and the noise stops.
Typically the PC is just idling on internet when this is most noticeable.
Not very loud noise but annoying. I'm hoping it stops after being run a while.
I have 3 120 mm case fans and another 120 mm radiator cooler fan and I hear the whine over all that.
Overall Review: This would be a great power supply to use minus the fan noise.
Pros: Quiet, cool, uses up less case space, wonderful
Cons: Provided instructions were pretty vague and the mounting system for mine was a bit different than shown in any installation video I found but it's simple enough to figure out.
Overall Review: Dropped my temps about 20 deg C
Would not even consider going back to a noisy fan
Pros: Decent but average case no serious complaints.
Cons: MSI rebate issues.
MSI claims that the UPC and Serial number barcode was missing from the rebate documents.
It was attached of course.
Oddly enough the document scan they provided me with for their proof that no UPC was attached clearly shows the attached UPC stapled to the rebate form.
MSI seems to have some issues actually following through with product rebates.
I would not buy or recommend this product again due to MSI's failure to follow through with the promised rebate.
Pros: Low cost SSD that works well for meand is very fast.
Looking at the reviews it seems you either have a good one or you don't. I must have a good one.
All the other reviews say it all.
Overall Review: Really wish I had purchased at least a 120 GB size instead.
Pros: It works great, as well as my old waterpic. For the price it's great. Does what it's supposed to do.
Cons: My big hands don't like the small twist controls and they are slippery when hands are wet.
The water basin could be larger, runs out of water a bit fast.
Overall Review: Definitely would buy again.
Pros: This is the second 2100 Max I received from Newegg. The first had some lock up problems, I sent it back to Newegg for replacement.
The second one I received works great, great deal for $89 bucks when compared to other entry level Garmin and others for more than twice as much and certainly no better.
Cons: Free Traffic updates, Freshmaps can be found for half the cost of map updates for other brands. I got the navagon Freshmaps for less than $50.00 for 12 updates over 3 years, Garmin $59.00 for one map update.
Overall Review: Navigon has stopped selling GPS devices in the US but remains operational in Europe.
They have committed to maintaining service to US Navigon owners.
Freshmaps updates are not mandatory but highly recommended.
