Worth every penny

Samsung U Flex Bluetooth Wireless In-ear Flexible Headphones with Microphone (US Version with Warranty), Black
Samsung U Flex Bluetooth Wireless In-ear Flexible Headphones with Microphone (US Version with Warranty), Black

Pros: These over-the-neck headphones were just as good as the 2 or 3 pair of LG Tones I had before it. They held a charge for my entire day of 50%+ use, and sometimes 2 days. They beeped when disconnected, but did not try to talk to me like the LGs did (I found that irritating). Before I ripped off an earpiece, they lasted for 1 year and 9 months, with no noticeable degradation.

Cons: The wires leading to the earpieces were mounted in the very front, making it possible to wrap around any nearby obstacle. In my case, I split one earpiece the first time, glued it back, and then ripped on earpiece completely off. I might buy another like it if they were still available, but I want to try a design that sends the wires out the side instead of the front..

Overall Review: Good phones, just be careful with the earpieces.

Pros: Good while it lasted. Performance was acceptable

Cons: Under very light usage, always in a case, never dropped, it died in 11 months.

Overall Review: I want a bigger drive anyway. Next time, I'll get one with a longer warranty, hopefully that will indicate higher quality.

One of Two chips DOA

Pros: Low price

Cons: not reliable.

Overall Review: I have been building my own PCs for 20+ years. I purchased 2 chips. They are hard to remove from the little USB adapter, but I was very careful and gentle. One chip has worked fine so far (2 days), but the other died 1.9 Gigs into the first file write, and the partial file could not be deleted or formatted from Windows XP (quick or full format) or Ubuntu utilities. I had already thrown away the packaging or I would RMA. My next order will be for a brand with a better reputation and better reviews. I still love NewEgg ... this is only my second negative experience with them after 4 or more years of business.
