Great Laptop Bag.
Pros: This is one very nice bag. Yep, it looks a little funky being in olive drab but that was a plus as far as I'm concerned. Didn't want another Basic Black bag. Great padding for the laptop and for you. Lot's of storage areas to keep things separated. I really love the corduroy lining for the laptop, it won't get a scratch on it in there. Super heavy duty construction. Looks like it will last forever.
Cons: No pad for the shoulder strap, but I never use the strap anyway so it doesn't really matter to me. And I'm sure it will slide off your shoulder just as efficiently without the pad as it would with it. They all do.
Overall Review: It really looks like something you'd pick up at an Army/Navy surplus store, but I like it like that. I've had two other cases. One was a Targus. Neither of them could compete with this bag. It just looks like you mean business, no fooling around. And at 60, I'm not a kid looking to weird people out. It's just one really nice bag. Give it a try.
Not that good.
Pros: They were on sale. The Klipsch logo looks impressive.
Cons: Negligible ability to meet advertised capability.
Overall Review: I bought these when they were on sale at a very low price. I was hoping for a pair of sport headphones that would provide a better seal and better sound that the ones I have. The "customizable flex wire design" sounded like a good idea. Unfortunately, it doesn't work. Even after getting help lining up the ear piece with the ear canal, the things pop out of place with nothing more than a minor change in facial expression. When you can get them to seal, they produce fantastic sound. Just don't expect it to last more than a few seconds. I was expecting a lot better from Klipsch.
Pros: Bought these on a whim. I've paired them with an MP3 player and my Laptop. Excellent sound and very comfortable. These are probably the most comfortable headphones I've ever owned. I'm not a audiophile but I know what I like and I know what sounds good. I've paid more for headphones that didn't sound as good as these and weren't nearly as comfortable. I'd definitely recommend these to anyone.
Cons: The only con I can think of is all the bright shiny surfaces, both black and chrome. Major fingerprint magnet.
Overall Review: Excellent product and excellent service.
Pros: Great Sound. Well Constructed. Tangle Free Cord. Very, Very Comfortable. Nicest Carry/Storage Pouch I've ever seen, for any device.
Cons: The closest thing I can come up that could be a Con is the cord is a little short. But in some cases, that could be a Pro.
Overall Review: I've had a lot of different headphones in the last 50+ years and I've got to say that these are probably the best overall headphones I've ever had. As soon as they arrived I yanked them out and put them to work. I listened to every type of music I have, Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Aerosmith, ELO, Lenny Kravitz, The Teddy Bears, Otis Redding, Henry Mancini, Joss Stone, BOND, Garth Brooks, KISS, Clapton, Don Henley and a bunch more. These Klipsch headphones did an outstanding job of presenting the various types of music faithfully. I even heard things in the music that I hadn't heard before. And the bass was truly outstanding. From the gentle, seductive bass produced by a string bass in a jazz ensemble to the load, booming, kick you in the fanny bass of a rock band, the bass in every selection was presented in the way it should have been. I am truly impressed. The weird thing is, at the price I got them at, I wasn't expecting much. I originally got them for my grand-kids to use with their laptops when they visit. But, these are really great headphones. I think I'm going to have to re-think who is going to get to use them. Now, about that storage/carry bag. That little device is a work of art in itself. I'm not sure what it's made out of, but it feels like a really thick fleece material. It has a truly luxurious feel to it and it will provide a lot of protection for the headphones. I'm really impressed. Another Class Act from Klipsch. I'm just glad they had them On Sale, because I would never have been able to afford them at the MSRP.
Pretty good printer for the price.
Pros: High quality printing, both text and pictures. Excellent scanning feature. Document feed works nicely. Individual ink cartridges for all colors eliminates ink waste. Readily available after market ink supply reduces cost of usage. Easy to setup and get going. Wifi feature is reliable.
Cons: First unit lasted only about 2 years. A bit noisier than I would like.
Overall Review: I always go with Canon printers when I want an Inkjet printer because Canon is the most likely to have readily available, high quality after market ink suppliers, which makes printing a whole lot cheaper. I bought my first MX922 a little over two years ago and it died recently, so I ordered a new one. I had a large supply of ink in stock for it. In that two years, the first printer produced 1000's of prints, scanned 100's of documents and made lots of copies. While it would have been nice if it had lasted a while longer, I figure I more than got my money's worth out of it. As for this most recent purchase, Beach Camera's service was excellent. They got the printer shipped out quickly and it arrived in good shape. I am totally happy with this purchase.
Pretty Good, But Not Perfect.
Pros: It produces a good cup of coffee. It's reasonably efficient. Lot's of variety when using optional "brew your own" k-cups.
Cons: Big. It takes up more room than a conventional brewer even though it makes less brewed coffee per use. Expensive. Everything about it costs more than I think is reasonable unless you can find third party options and use the cups that allow you to use your own coffee source. But my biggest complaint is that there is no control over the temperature of the finished product. While it produces a cup of coffee at just about the right temperature to drink, if you add any kind of refrigerated creamer it drops the temp down to a less than perfect level. Then you have to microwave the coffee to get it back up to where it needs to be, which means you have to be using a microwave safe cup/mug that will fit both under the Keurig and in your microwave. It's just a pain.
Overall Review: I'm not a coffee fanatic. I only drink coffee in the morning and then only during the winter months. Prior to getting the Keurig I was using instant coffee and found it to be a less that desirable product. I've been getting my Keurig ready for the upcoming winter season but I'm beginning to wonder if a small serving conventional coffee maker might not be a better idea.
