Pros: Well worth the price! Work great, both, connectivity and sound delivery Did not test microphone

Cons: - No box cover (not intended for being carried in the pocket?) - No volume control (have to use connected device) Neither is a deal-breaker for me.

Overall Review: Well worth their price as a spare set of headphones.

Most Critical Review

Impractical

Hamilton Beach 4-Slice Toaster Oven, Stainless Steel
Hamilton Beach 4-Slice Toaster Oven, Stainless Steel

Pros: Nice look, aluminum finish, reasonable price

Cons: Highly impractical design...

Overall Review: Purchased mainly for grilling cheese sandwiches and warming up buffalo wings / pizza. These are the foods that tend to drip and require frequent clean-up. Though this toaster comes with both, wire tray and a crumb tray, you can't use them at the same time. Since you wold want your food to be baked / warmed up on both sides, you would use the wire tray most of the time. Without a crumb tray, everything would be dripping right on to the heat element and the bottom of the device. Though bottom plate is accessible and fold out to allow for easy clean-up, you must tilt your toaster 90 degrees to get to it, causing all the mess to fall / drip onto the back wall and inside the toaster.

Works as advertised!

USB C Power Bank 15000mAh Fast Emergency Charging Slim Portable Charger 30W PD3.0 RAVPower Power Delivery External Battery Pack with Digital Display for iPhone 12Pro Max, iPad Pro, Galaxy S21 and More

Pros: Got two (was a good deal at a time) and have not had a single problem with either after moderate use over past few weeks. Recharges quickly, does fast-charging, last through several charges. Allows you to charge a device while it is charging. Why would you do that? Fast Charging!

Cons: Manual has tiny print, could barely read it, but with single button and two ports you may never resort to it :). I just wanted to look up what the blue light meant (when connected to 3A chromebook power supply), but it wasn't mentioned there, anyway. However, accordinng to the manual, warranty is actually 18 months (as opposed to 1 year listed iin New Egg description)

Overall Review: Solid device, well manufactured and reliable.

HORIBLE screen

Lenovo 2-in-1 Notebook IdeaPad Flex 15 (59387556) Intel Core i3 4th Gen 4010U (1.7GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD 8GB NAND Flash SSHD SSD Intel HD Graphics 4400 15.6" Touchscreen Windows 8

Pros: Lenovo, nice specs, slick design, competitive price

Cons: HORIBLE screen. Very pixilated, very narrow viewing angle. Adoptive backlighting makes it even worse. SLOW! Must be related to the hard drive, but it's significantly slower than my 3 yr old x60 (Core 2 Duo) with SSD drive. Task manager was showing latency as high as 10sec (!!!!) HUGE. I didn't realize how huge 15.6 laptop would be. Not really a con, but worth mentioning.

Overall Review: Purchased it as a cristmass present for my significant other and will have to return it. One of the deciding factors for me was that it's a Lenovo and, as someone who's been supporting enterprise computers for 15 yrs, I am very fond of IBM / Lenovo brand. I was VERY surprised to find such a horrible quality screen on Lenovo device. Viewing angle is about 90 degrees, after that colors get messed up. Additionally, 1366 x 768 on 15.6 screen is auwfully pixilated. You can distinctly see each and every pixel on the screen from about 3 feet. It also feels unreasonablly slow. CPU behaved well and once apps are loaded, it was quite snappy, but starting apps or loading the updates was painfully slow. Task Manager was showing disk usage at 100% at all times and latency was going up and down from 500ms all way up to 10seconds (!). I am guessing this could be just a faulty drive in mine, but even if that was not an issue, I can't get past the screen...
