Kingston 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDC4/32GB

5 out of 5 eggs good card 12/05/2013

This review is from: Kingston 32GB microSDHC Flash Card Model SDC4/32GB

Pros: What is there to say? It's a good card, not much more than that, no reason not to give 5 stars.

Well-priced, compatible with two different brand cameras I use, and reads in my laptop with decent R/W speed. Can be formatted easily.

I wouldn't see any difference between this card and higher priced ones.

Cons: none that I can think of.

Sceptre 40
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Couldn't be happier! 07/22/2013

This review is from: Sceptre 40" Class (38.5" Diag.) 1080p 60Hz LCD HDTV X408BV-FHD

Pros: Awesome price (could definitely be worth hundreds more)

Full HD picture; Looks fantastic, and all color/temp controls are highly customizable

So many ports of every type (aux, VGA, 3 HDMI's, YPbPr, A/V). I have every device hooked up to this tv (XBox, Roku, PC, Cable, N64, Gamecube), it switches seamlessly.

Digital tuner picked up at least 30 more HD channels on my basic cable connection that my old analog tv couldn't. It tunes and navigates these channels quickly.

The screen and plastic screen border seems smudge and fingerprint resistant somehow.

Rotating base is secure and allows easy-but-stable rotation for different viewing angles.

Wide viewing angles; you can see the picture just as clearly from head-on, at a distance, or far to the side. Anyone with a line of sight to the TV will get a good picture.

Great audio controls. Has an audio out by two methods; either a standard headphones port, or by Red/White RCA ports. You can choose which devices you want to receive the audio, or play through multiple simultaneously. Very easy to add your own audio system.

Power cord is not bulky, does not involve some large brick or adapter as it plugs into your wall to steal all of your outlet space.

Remote is well designed too.

Very little glare; screen brightness is perfect in low and high light conditions.

Cons: Very minor complaints; These "cons" are just what I can try and come up with to help you, but really don't bother me much.

Seems to run hot. There are ventilation slits along the back. If you hold your hand near, you can feel how much heat this thing pumps off.

Native audio is acceptable, but sounds kind of flat and tinny. I highly recommend some sort of separate audio system. Even a pair of computer speakers w/ subwoofer would be a tremendous improvement.

Although the screen and border seems resistant to dirt and fingerprints, the base of this TV is a static magnet! Dust and dog hair seems to constantly gather around the base. I need to clean it frequently.

Need to aim the remote directly to the lower left corner of the TV where the receiver is. Weak IR signal, apparently. If there's an obstruction (a drink on your coffee table between you and the tv, perhaps?) you'll need to clear a direct path for the remote beam.

Other Thoughts: I had read some frightening reviews before purchasing about Sceptre brand. I have never heard of them and assumed it to be some cheap overseas company with no support. Perhaps it is, but I haven't had to call them!

I have owned the TV for about 8 months. No dead lines in the screen, no burnt pixels, nothing wrong as some other reviews stated. I guess I wasted my money on the warranty. It still functions as perfectly new as it did out of the box.

I have nothing but praise for this TV for the price of $299 which I paid for it. I'd argue it can stack up side-by-side to any of the top name brands that run twice as expensive.
