World Tech Toys ZX-35095  - GYRO Metal Arrow Hawk 3.5CH Electric RTF RC Helicopter
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

2 out of 5 eggs DOA Charger - Ruined a kids highly anticipated b-day present. 01/20/2014

This review is from: World Tech Toys ZX-35095 - GYRO Metal Arrow Hawk 3.5CH Electric RTF RC Helicopter

Pros: Came pretty fast. Copter looks fine.

Cons: The charger died right out of the box. On the initial charge there was a "pop" from inside the charger. I cannot test the helicopter until I get a replacement charger.

I have contacted the seller to see if they do the right thing.
However, I will not the entire heli back or pay for shipping to return just the defective charger, that is not an option.

Should they want my return business, they will send a new charger and possibly a prepaid label for the defective one.

Other Thoughts: The remote control is SUPER CHEAP and poorly constructed. More so than typical cheap china stuff. Also, one of the controllers toggles fell right off because it was not glued in like the other one.

I will follow up with more information dependent on sellers response.

I have yet to review the seller Hobbytron but, I should have read the reviews before I purchased from this seller.

Collection LED Tube / 19 Watts / 40 watts CFL replacement / 1611 lumens / Daylight / 5000k  / 40,000 hr / 2 yr warranty / 2 packs
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: VERY NICE. Bright daylight in our kitchen now.
Replaced two 40watt daylight florescents with these and wow, what a difference. They use 1/2 the electricity, last longer and are brighter.

Cost effectiveness is negotiable however as florescent tubes are super cheap but, these LED alternatives are far superior in the illumination department. Also cooler, last longer and no noise.

Wiring was a piece of cake, far easier than the instructions read. Just kill power, remove the ballast, cap off the wires individually on one end of the fixture and run 115 to one end of each tubes socket. Typically already paralleled wiring exists in most 2 tube fixtures. Took 10 minutes.

Cons: 4 Stars due to two reasons.
1- Cost (and I got these on sale for 45 bucks pair here).
2- 1 second time delay when you flip the switch.

Other Thoughts: Cost of these is high. Basically, 12.225 cents a KWH is our power bill bottom line. So two 40's at 10 hours a day draw around .8 KWH and with ballast, prob close to 1KWH per day. So, ~$3.68 a month for std tubes and ~$1.50 for these LED tubes at 10 hours a day (if they in fact pull 19watts). So, they can pay for themselves in just over a year at 10 hours a day usage. A good investment.

Rosewill Audio Pro RHM-6308 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

1 out of 5 eggs Died in 3 uses. 12/20/2012

This review is from: Rosewill Audio Pro RHM-6308 USB Connector Circumaural Gaming Headset

Pros: When it worked, it was okay for twenty bucks.

Cons: Third time I went to use it, I plugged it in and system did not recognize. Tried on several PC's. No luck. Less than 15 minutes of use! Junk.

Other Thoughts: Get a different headset. Used it THREE TIMES! Purchased on 11-01-2012 and it is now 12-20-2012 so, out of 30 day warranty and unless Rosewill steps up to the plate and replaces, this was a waste of money. Had issues with other Rosewill products over the last couple years so, THIS IS THE LAST ROSEWILL PRODUCT I WILL EVER PURCHASE whether they replace it or not.
