LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Product, a few caveats 12/29/2012

This review is from: LG Behind-The-Neck Stereo Bluetooth Headset w/ Music Streaming/ Call Waiting Support (HBS-700)

Pros: As others have mentioned before:
- sits on your neck, not your ears
- you can wear this under a jacket/hat in cold weather without issue
- stays put in physical activity (workout, labor, etc.)
- charges quickly with micro USB
- can pair with two devices at the same time

I've been able to wear this headset all day long every day and use it for music and phone calls and sounds from my computers, and have rarely needed to charge it in the middle of the workday. However, I also plug it in every night to make sure it's fully charged for the day.

Cons: if you're lying on your back, it will fall off, so situps are out.

no mute on the headset, so you have to go to your phone to mute yourself on a phone call (note to LG: both volume buttons should have been MUTE and the extra bass boost feature should have been on the track playback buttons; bad form).

wires for ear buds don't have strong enough sheathing. I wore through the sheathing on both ear buds in about a year, which resulted in exposed wires on both sides. Only reason I'm purchasing this one now is to replace the one I currently have, since the right earbud no longer works.

you can hit the buttons accidentally if you tilt your head too far to one side while on a call, so a lock feature would be nice (mentioned in another review).

Other Thoughts: If you're wondering about whether to get this or not, let me save you some time: buy it.

I have been very pleased with the set, and inadvertently started a trend at work where at least 5 other people have purchased this after seeing me wearing it. The set will not disappoint you.

If you're an audiophile, remember that you're getting a bluetooth headset that's primarily meant for phone-calls (this includes skype), not for running a mixing studio.

I recommend the bass-boost feature, it makes the sound a bit fuller and easier to hear.

if you can find a way to protect the wires, I highly recommend it. I've worn my set daily for the last year, and both earbud wires had the sheathing get rubbed open right at the point where they connect to the large plastic nodes that go around your neck. As a result, the right earbud no longer works.

StarTech 2.5in SATA External Hard Drive Enclosure w/ 3.5/5.25 Front Drive Bay
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: This is identical to the Rosewill RX251-US drive enclosure. Just don't know if they are completely interchangeable (seems like they should be).

Cons: Newegg discontinued the Rosewill 3.5" drive that the RX251 HDD tray they are selling fits into. (N82E16817182112 = 3.5" drive, N82E16817182113 = HDD tray).

Other Thoughts: Now, instead of being able to buy the Rosewill enclosure (that allows you to mount the drive in a desktop) for around thirty, if you still need the internal enclosure, you have to buy the this enclosure at twice that price. Oh yeah, and Newegg is the only Rosewill dealer, per Rosewill's website.

Rosewill Stallion Series RD500-2SB - 500-Watt ATX12V v2.2 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Rosewill = Generally excellent quality without slaying your pocket book

Cons: DOA

Other Thoughts: Rosewill makes ecellent products, and I've been very please with items I've bought from them before. Between this PSU being DOA, and the fact that it doesn't have modular cabling, it didn't work out for what I need.

This is the first PSU I've ever bought that was DOA. QC needs to do a better job.
