Amazing phone for the $

Axon Pro Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver Color, 64GB Storage 4GB RAM, (North America Warranty)
Axon Pro Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver Color, 64GB Storage 4GB RAM, (North America Warranty)

Pros: Beautiful display, bright and color rich but not saturated. Speed 64 GB storage, 4 GB ram. Easy to use Works great with T Mobile Aluminum body - looks better than a review suggested. Close to pure android No glitches or issues yet Quick charge feature Uses miniusb, not USB C that likely would require ordering extra wiring. The camera is better than I expected.

Cons: Battery holds up through the day, but barely, wish they would have went with a greater capacity, say 3400. I also hope but doubt ZTE will upgrade this model's android to Marshmallow and later versions. The phone can get a little warm, but not uncomfortably so, during multitasking. I understand disabling extra apps helps with this and increases battery time. Also the second lens on the rear camera is still a mystery to me and I have read it is not very helpful. Also I think it better that a great phone have microusb storage and a removable battery, but this phone, like other top of the line phones, does not. The only other issues I could imagine are related to using android.

Overall Review: So far, I wish I would have ordered several instead of the two others I ordered. This came with a $50 pair of JBL headphones and is largely the equivalent of phones that cost much more. Don't expect to find a wide array of great cases for these phones!

Most Critical Review

Be Careful about this one!

ZOTAC H67ITX-C-E LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
ZOTAC H67ITX-C-E LGA 1155 Intel H67 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard

Pros: ITX - small board with many features. USB 3 Sandy Bridge etc.

Cons: Fails to work as expected Many problems-there working on a bios to fix as many as possible. Zotac mainboard support not as bad as others have found.

Overall Review: Frankly I am surprised that Zotac would release a board that clearly needs so much to make it work for their customers. I am RMAing mine, hoping that Newegg will allow me to buy another brand.

Suprising phone for the money!

Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty
Asus Zenfone 2 Laser Unlocked Smart Phone, 5.5" Silver, 32GB Storage 3GB RAM, US Warranty

Pros: Large screen, memory, speed, good camera

Cons: Not as bright as a quad HD display

Overall Review: I recommend this product to the value conscious consumer who wants a large full service smart phone but doesn't want to pay the high price of Samsung or Apple. I would buy again, and actually did buy 2!

Fast and silent!

HyperX 3K 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive) SH103S3/240G
HyperX 3K 2.5" 240GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) (Stand-Alone Drive) SH103S3/240G

Pros: From what I can tell, this drive is great. It allows for quick windows load times and silent performance. I think the SSD is clearly the drive technology of our time and the future.

Cons: Just a couple of issues. The first is that the drive size is small for my tastes, but is the largest one can purchase on a average budget. The same dollars would buy a huge hard drive! The only other con is that, though the drive came with a small cage to mount it to a 3.5 inch bay and a few screws, it didn't come with anything else. Even transferring the files from the old drive to this was a problem. Fortunately the other drive was a WD one, and I could use their free software that works wonderfully.

Overall Review: Drop the price and raise the capacity, and the SSD will clearly be king of storage!

Basically OK

Panasonic ES8243A Arc IV Rechargeable Men's Wet/Dry 4-Blade Shaver with Travel Pouch
Panasonic ES8243A Arc IV Rechargeable Men's Wet/Dry 4-Blade Shaver with Travel Pouch

Pros: Basically this is a nice Panasonic shaver that was worth the price and allows a better shave that most of the other major brands that I have owned. It has four screens (but only two cutters), quickly recharges and fits nicely in your hand. Works equally well dry or wet.

Cons: Sometimes it seems to leave a little too much stubble, but other times not. It is somewhat disappointing as I previously had bought a cheaper Panasonic model (bought for 30 dollars less) and this one performs on a par with that shaver and I was expecting more. It also seems to have something of an issue where the screen gets compressed against the cutter creating a high pitch sound and a lack of performance. Doesn't seem to damage the shaver though.

Overall Review: I think I am a Panasonic buyer. These shavers are certainly good products, they have less maintenance than their competitors (for example you can easily go a year before buying screens and blades) and easily flex to the contours of your face. What more can we ask? As for me, I am still looking for a shaver that you run once over your face and the job is done!
