Nice scarf2/2/2012 4:51:51 PM

Pros: Looks great at a nice price. A delicate scarf that looks to be of nice quality. Comes in a pretty pink fabric bag.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Not much too say about this scarf because it is exactly as advertised except for that I didn't see that the scarf would arrive in a nice fabric bag. Nice bonus.

nice unit6/20/2009 7:57:13 AM

Pros: I love the fact that this device accepts as many inputs as it does. It accepts an SD card, USB input, a 3.5mm plug, iPod, and bluetooth. That part of this device is awesome! However, my main reason for purchasing this device is the bluetooth function since I want to stream music from my laptop. It took me a while to set it up to work but once I did, it connected fine. The sound is adequate; not great, but reasonable. Nice full size remote control.

Cons: It loses the bluetooth connection quite often, even though my laptop is only seven feet away. It worked fine for a couple hours when I had it playing and no one was around but as soon as people walked between the laptop and the Phillips system, the sound would break up and take a few seconds to return.

Overall Review: Overall, this is a nice device. I previously purchased a "Mint" speaker that has very good sound and uses wireless(not bluetooth) to connect to the laptop and it works great. However, it did not have a radio which I really wanted so I bought this one as well. In comparison, the Mint sound and wireless is better; however, the Phillips provides much more connectivity options which is a plus. My main reason for buying this is the fm radio since that it what the "Mint" unit lacks.

In comparison, the Mint sound and wireless is better; the wireless range is about the same but the mint does not drop out like the phillips. The mint is standard wireless and not bluetooth. The Phillips provides much more connectivity options but the wireless connectivity is a problem.

So far so good.6/19/2009 4:46:35 PM

Pros: I placed the card in my Garmin 265WT and it recognized the map. It appears to be recognized and working fine.

Cons: Just for fun, I entered the address of my in-laws house in San Luis Potosi, SLP to see if it would provide me directions. The GPS did find the address but would not show me the route. It seem as if the gps routing feature only works for addresses in the US even though it also had the Mexico map in the SD slot. It would find the address but not route the trip.

Overall Review: I will be traveling to Mexico in a week and will use the Mexico map. My hopes are that the gps will work at least as it does in the US. I will add a review based on my experience. At this point, I'm a little disappointed that it can not map directly from my location in Naperville, IL to the address in Mexico. We'll see. I will provide an update once I return.

Works seemless6/19/2009 4:36:28 PM

Pros: Works great on my TOSHIBA Satellite L305-S5921 Intel Pentium. I upgraded from 2gb to 4gb. No issues at all, just worked.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Just worked. What else can I say - I didn't speed rate it. The laptop just powered up and worked fine.

works well6/19/2009 4:32:20 PM

Pros: Cools the laptop. The power button on the front is nice. The fact that it allows you to increase and decrease the fan speed. Also, the fans blow out of the sides instead of directly down on your legs.

Cons: none

Overall Review: The supplied usb cord is a bit long; however, realizing that there are many laptop configurations, I can understand the need to standardize.

Excellent value6/19/2009 4:24:13 PM

Pros: Works as it should. No issues whatsoever. Great value for the price. Overall a very good value for the money. Newegg of course was excellent on shipping since it arrived very quickly. Not much to say except that this was a very good purchase. This is a good laptop and I have yet to feel it get hot as with others that I have had. Works seemless.

Cons: None. Great value for the money. Solid performer for everyday use.

Overall Review: I wish it had a webcam and bluetooth built in. Hmm, still a great value for the price.

Great set of portable speakers4/26/2009 10:27:26 AM

Pros: Portable, sound, carrying case. Sound is transferred through the usb which is also the power cable for the speakers. Sound is impressive for speakers of this size. The included carrying case does a nice job of holding the speakers and wires. The case has enough room to hold my presentation controller as well. I use the speakers with my laptop during presentations and they are loud enough to be heard in an average sized room. For music listening, they sound pretty good as well. An excellent upgrade for my dell laptop.

Cons: I really like these speakers and wish that I could use them with my ipod. Not sure if that's possible since they are powered via usb.

Overall Review: The size of these speakers is just right for me since I carry a backpack to hold my laptop, a digital camera, and these speakers. As I said in the cons (really more of a want) I really like these but would like a way to be able to use them with a portable music player. That would make these speakers perfect in terms of size to quality and versatility.
