Most Favorable Review

excellent design, soso performance

KINAMAX President Notebook Cooler Pad w/3 Built-in 60mm Fans for Laptops FAN-NTP3
KINAMAX President Notebook Cooler Pad w/3 Built-in 60mm Fans for Laptops FAN-NTP3

Pros: design is ergonomic, with modern curves to it, much prettier appearance compare with other notebook coolers, and its cheaper than most retails out there, for better cooling performance

Cons: its build with plastics, backside on/off switch came off box loose, have to find a match for them. cannot switch inflow/outflow direction, if there's a way that'll require rewiring connectors

Overall Review: this thing is not that big, it levels up the laptop and made it inconvenient to type.

Most Critical Review

Nonworking Rice Cooker

TATUNG TRC-6ST Stainless Steel Direct Heat Rice Cooker
TATUNG TRC-6ST Stainless Steel Direct Heat Rice Cooker

Pros: nice looking rice cooker

Cons: turning off by itself before the rice is cooked

Overall Review: I had used this rice cooker for about 6 months before i put it for garage sale. When you use this rice cooker, you have to press and hold the button down many times until you see the cook sign. Then you watch it for at least 15 minutes to make sure that it won't turn off by itself before the rice is cooked. If you don't, please trust me it will turn off by itself before the rice is cooked. We had a hard time dealing with this rice cooker, so we sold it to someone for $3. If you're a busy person, don't want to eat uncooked rice, and don't want to waste your time, I would strongly suggest you avoiding this rice cooker. It looks so elegant, but it doesn't cook the rice thoroughly and burns on the bottom.

IOGEAR KVM 2-Port USB VGA Cabled Switch - 2048 x 1536 - Remote Button Switch - Plug n Play - PC, MAC, SUN - GCS22U

Pros: not PS2 but 2 usb ports for kb and mouse

Cons: VGA output only, had to apply dvi > vga adaptor, images were distorted somewhat.

Overall Review: make a DVI version of it. since you're at it, IOGEAR, why not make the audio port as well ?

Terrible GPS

PHAROS 4.0" GPS Navigation
PHAROS 4.0" GPS Navigation

Pros: It looked like a GPS, it came with a SD memory card.

Cons: This thing works when it wants to, battery died after 2 weeks of use, 90% of the time I have to hard reset it, otherwise it will not turn on. Screen is not 4 inch, which is the diagonal measure of the Cover Plastic Edge. The whole GPS software worked as Windows CE application, without the maps inside SD card it will not work. Fonts are so small, buttons are also small you'd have to use the STYLUS they included. If it’s not FINGER friendly, then it is not designed for drivers. Called PHAROS within my 30 days about battery issue and map update issues, NO SUCH THING CALLED MAP UPDATE, *** CANNOT UPDATE MAPS *** not even If I want to pay for that. Now this thing is a paper weight, I got a TOMTOM instead; I should so get that the first time, don’t waste your money on this trash.

Overall Review: There is an antenna hole in the back, customer service don't even know it exists when I ask for GPS antenna accessory.
