Pros: Great casual piece for the price; I got it for $55 (Including tax and shipping). My girlfriend loves it. Do note that I replaced the chain that came with the necklace; see cons for details.
Cons: I noted prior to purchasing that the included chain was not adequate (looks very flimsy and would not hold very well). However I am not deducting an egg since I knew prior to purchasing. I got a sterling silver box-chain at a local jewellery shop and now it's perfect!
Overall Review: I highly recommend this for guys looking for a casual and practical gift for their girlfriends for Valentines.
Pros: -Great color reproduction (once you fine tune the settings)
-Easy to setup (You only need a Philips screw driver)
-Very Slim (Compared to my previous LCD TV)
-Good selection of input/output options
=>Has 3.5mm audio out jack (Read other thoughts)
=> Several HDMI outputs for your Blu-ray, console(s) HTPC and/or Media Box.
Cons: -Terrible Sound: To be expected at this price point, I did not deduct any points for this.
-Remote not responsive: Deducted an egg for this.
Overall Review: Overall a great TV for the price - I got this for $420CDN after tax before a whopping $70 Mail-In Rebate.
Got this solely to pair with my HTPC. I gave this a 4/5 because of the great overall quality. The main reason I deducted a egg was because of the unresponsive remote. The terrible sound quality was to be expected considering it's price point (did not lose points because of this).
**Considering how economical the TV is, I highly recommend getting some decent $20-30 Speakers for this TV. I'm no audiophile but the sound quality difference is night and day.
-Stable connection with decent range (at first, see other thoughts)
-Works brilliantly with my iPod Touch 4th Gen and Samsung Galaxy Phone
-Call/Voice quality is fairly good (for the price)
Cons: -It's dying (See other thoughts)
Overall Review: I've been using this for about 4 months now and the headset's connectivity/range is slowly fading/dying. I used to be able to pick up a solid signal from across the room (with no walls) without any problems regardless it's from my iPod Touch or Phone. However, now I can barely get a solid signal when the phone/ipod is in my pocket (2 feet away).
I'd give it 4 eggs if it lasted a full year.
Pros: -Economical (Got this for $39.50 CDN after taxes and shipping during a sale).
-SHARP, can't stress this enough..... this is not a toy.
-Nice grips; greatly improves handling and safety.
The knives work great for cutting vegetables, fruits and boneless meats. Be very very careful when using these if you haven't used ceramic before.
Cons: -Cheap & flimsy plastic cutting board
-Peeler has a tiny chip in it
Don't really mind the tiny chip or the plastic board since I mainly bought this for the knives. Considering what you get for the price (on sale), it's well worth it.
Overall Review: Recently got into cooking and this is my first experience with ceramic knives. So far so good.....
Oh and don't use excess force when cutting on the plastic board since it will easily bruise (because the knifes are very hard and sharp). Decided to use a wood cutting board for my ceramics and the plastic for stainless steel~
Would give 4.5 but can't, so going to rate this 4 instead because of the bad board and chip in the peeler.
Pros: -Extremely silent; the padded side panels absorb alot of sound and vibration
-Maintains good air-flow; even with the front panel closed.
-Lots of room for cable management
-Extremely(also excessively) large CPU cutout; installing/changing the CPU cooler would be a breeze
-Smooth finger-print resistant front panel finish (very slick)
-Extremely extremly easy to remove front dust filter
-Fan controller panel at the back of the case [it's really just a speed switch holder for Antec fans but.... I really like it]
-Last but not least, good Power/Reset button placement [Top front of the case]
Cons: My only complaint (why I deducted an egg ) is due to the lack of a USB 3.0 20pin to 9pin adapter for users who have a slightly dated Motherboard. I can understand that it would be a waste to include an adapter with EVERY purchase, however I think they should give buyers an option for requesting an adapter, given the customer provides a copy of purchase. Please refer to the link below to see a picture of the adapter I mentioned earlier.
Overall Review: Overall great case, it's easily one of the best looking items in my room (aside from my Asus monitor) will not even consider getting a new case for years to come.
