Compact, and maybe useful, keychain bauble

SCOSCHE flipSYNC II Keychain with USB 2.0 Charge & Sync Dual Cable for Micro & Mini Devices (USBMM2)
SCOSCHE flipSYNC II Keychain with USB 2.0 Charge & Sync Dual Cable for Micro & Mini Devices (USBMM2)

Pros: I've never been in a situation where I desperately needed a USB to mini/micro cable while away from home, but when I do I'm set. Note that the length when extended from USB to mini/micro tip is only about 4" so the device you're charging will need to be up close and personal with the computer. As a bonus, this little bauble was was able to both charge and data sync.

Cons: While it's small and light enough to fit on a keychain, I wish a small ring could have been provided because the connector too thick to slip onto a keychain without difficulty.

Overall Review: Purchased as a shell shocker impulse buy and I'm happy with the purchase.

Most Critical Review

Loved for 2 months, then fan died

Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans
Cooler Master NotePal U2 - Laptop Cooling Pad with Dual 80 mm Configurable Fans

Pros: Bought during Black Friday and loved it for the 2 months it worked. It *was* whisper quiet and it did lower my laptop temp by 10 deg C .. than was then, see cons for now.

Cons: One of the fans started vibrating and shaking and generally made itself so disagreeably loud that I stopped using the stand.

Overall Review: Nice design, too bad the product is hampered with such shoddy workmanship.

Fun for the 3 weeks it worked

Pros: It was fun while it lasted. Light enough that when attached to some helium balloons it floated for some birds-eye-view video.

Cons: Didn't last more than 3 weeks. I admit not expecting much, but even lasting out a month would have been expected.

Overall Review: As others have said, the included documentation was just awful, but there are some very good youtube videos on its operation.

Really is a nice looking watch

Pros: I like this watch very much. Just that perfect dressy touch to a jeans based outfit and yet still dressy enough to wear out in the evening. Feels solid and hefty, and yet looks very feminine.

Cons: No cons. Got a good watch at a extremely good price (shell shocker!).

Overall Review: I needed to have about 5 links removed from the wristband to fit my wrist, and I'm by no means considered skinny, so there is plenty of wristband provided for adjustments.

Works as expected, with one obvious exception

iLuv - Portable Amplified Stereo Speaker Case (iSP110) - BLACK
iLuv - Portable Amplified Stereo Speaker Case (iSP110) - BLACK

Pros: Loud enough, tho the sound is tinny and distorted at higher volume ... but that was expected considering the price and size. Works as an amplifier for mp3 music, not so much for radio.

Cons: Biggest reason I purchased this was for background radio ... my mp3 player includes fm radio ... but putting the player *inside* the iLuv speaker case completely borks reception.

Overall Review: I had expected a plastic case, but was pleasantly surprised to find a textured pseudo-satin feel to the outside.

They work ... but pretty wouldn't buy again

Mee audio Original Series SX-31 In-Ear Earphones for iPod and MP3 Players (black)
Mee audio Original Series SX-31 In-Ear Earphones for iPod and MP3 Players (black)

Pros: I'm not an audiophile, but to my unsophisticated ears these do sound better than stock iBuds, and by using the smallest rubber cushions they fit much better.

Cons: Audio to one or the other ear cuts out sporadically. Seems to be a connection issue between the mp3 player and connector because when I jiggle the connection I get audio to both ears restored.

Overall Review: If I had paid even a dollar more for these headsets I would have returned, but because I spent so little for these headphones, and they do fit and sound better than what I was using previously, I'll be keeping. I wouldn't buy another set tho.
