Creative ZEN Mozaic 1.8" Black 4GB MP3 / MP4 Player
Creative ZEN Mozaic 1.8" Black 4GB MP3 / MP4 Player

Pros: Lots of functions that are almost easy to run thru. Sound and video are nice. Small enough to go anywhere, but screen is great for private viewing

Cons: software is the worst I've seen from creative. No paper manual( just a quick start sheet ), you need to download it and it's real weak. I still gave this item 5 star's because all the questions I had were answered by playing around with it for a few min's, but I would have liked a good users manual.

Overall Review: It needs the headphones attached to receive radio transmissions. The speaker is the best I've heard from such a small device.

YAMAHA NX-U10BL 20 W 10 W x 2 (1 kHz, 10% THD) USB Powered Stereo Speaker- Black Finish
YAMAHA NX-U10BL 20 W 10 W x 2 (1 kHz, 10% THD) USB Powered Stereo Speaker- Black Finish

Pros: Good sound. Loud enough to fill a large room.

Cons: This unit is powered only, there is no amplifier by-pass. You have to be running USB-AC- or BATTERY power to get sound out of it. At high volume, 4 AAA batteries aren't enough to provide much playing time. Inserting the batteries is kind of pain to line up, the cover gets in the way.

Overall Review: Would have liked an equalizer built into this, my Zen vision W doesn't have one and the bass response makes me turn the volume down to lose some distortion. With minor flaws, it's still worth the money. As always, newegg rocks ! ! !

Transcend 8GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS8GCF133
Transcend 8GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model TS8GCF133

Pros: Named brand at a good price.

Cons: I bought it for my canon XTI and still cannot get a full burst of pictures without the card slowing camera down.

Overall Review: pictures transfer from card to computer very fast, but thats not really where I want the speed. I would say this card rocks as a flash drive

fast D/L

ADATA Turbo 2GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model CF 266X 2GB
ADATA Turbo 2GB Compact Flash (CF) Flash Card Model CF 266X 2GB

Pros: Downloading pictures from this card to computer is very fast.

Cons: On my canon XTI, this card cannot take more than a 5 picture burst ( just Large, not + RAW ) without hesitating to write. Very frustrating, I feel they need to re-vamp the speed tests.

Overall Review: Price would have been fair if it performed where I needed it. Newegg rocks, but doesn't need to spam me, I'm here often enough.

power monkey PM-eXBoxGray - with Solar panel. iPod, Cell phone, PSP portable charger - Retail
power monkey PM-eXBoxGray - with Solar panel. iPod, Cell phone, PSP portable charger - Retail

Pros: already half charged out of the box, it recharged my motorola cell phone. Then plugged it into my creative zen vision W which went straight to charging as well. Plugged in the solar panel and placed it into direct sunlight for a few hours and recharged a bit. Plugged into AC outlet to finish complete charge, which only took a few hours. Works as advertised, mostly interested to see how long it will continue to work.

Cons: Would have liked a longer ' solar panel to battery ' cable.

Overall Review: Prior to slapping everything together, I did do some quick research to ensure all polarities were the same as my electronics. I didn't want to smoke my phone or multi-media player. Nothing needed adjustment. Also, having all tips included is hard to find from other products, usually tips are EXTRA !
