Rosewill RLFL-11004 1W 70 Lumens LED Head Lamp
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

1 out of 5 eggs Only for pin heads 09/12/2012

This review is from: Rosewill RLFL-11004 1W 70 Lumens LED Head Lamp

Pros: None

Cons: It was discount deal. If it wasn't I'd not have bought it and be much better off.

My hat size is 7 1/4. Average? I dunno, but it's not a "pin" or "fat" head. When straps of this headlamp are adjusted completely out it still fits way too tight. For a heavier 3 AA cell headlamp I like a on top head band so I don't have to adjust the forehead band so tight, but that's too short too.

Thin plastic lens over LED came cracked.

The battery case DIFFICULT to open.

This 3 AA cell powered LED advertised at 70 lumens is not near as bright as my single AA cell 45 lumens Rayovac.

Tilt adjustment is VERY poor.

Other Thoughts: I LOVE my Rosewill convection oven and the other products I've bought from Newegg with their name have satisfied me.

It's going to take a 6 mile drive to the post office for me to return it. I'm not doing it for the $6 I'll get refunded. It's to TELL Rosewill ... I want good deals and reasonable QUALITY ... not JUNK!

DuroStar DS4000S 4000-Watt 7.0 HP Air-Cooled OHV Portable RV Gas Engine Generator
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Started on first pull for my young helper and then surprisingly for me a old fart with floppy biceps! It handled the test load of two small ceramic heaters one at half power and one full ... approx 2500 watts from adding the two "Kill-a-Watt" meter reading measured at the heater end of a 25' 10 gauge extension 5-30 plug to 3ea standard 115v standard plug end. It looks good and manual is good too.

Cons: The single page "Unpacking Instructions" was for a different generator. It called for 1 quart of 30wt oil WHICH IS WRONG! Manual says 20oz of 10-30wt. This page also mentions a battery for starting, but this DS4000S is a pull start. Shipping bracket bolts were WAY to tight and REQUIRED a socket and small breaker bar to loosen.

Other Thoughts: After purchase but before receiving I searched net for reviews and found mention of the problems indicated in my "Cons" so I was ready for them. The generator is for standby in case of power failure. I filled the tank and added a gas stabilizer that is supposed to last for a year which I did because years ago a motorcycle I'd stored with half a tank developed rust inside from condensation. I found a large plastic garbage bag makes a snug fit dust cover. Mine's stored on a deck so has breathing room underneath.

4 out of 5 eggs Started on First Pull 07/18/2012

This review is from: DuroStar DS4000S 4000-Watt 7.0 HP Air-Cooled OHV Portable RV Gas Engine Generator

Pros: GREAT on special price. I'm overall very impressed with it's build quality. Looks good and seems well made. Started on the first pull. Easily handled the test load of two small portable ceramic heaters (approx 3000 watts) attached via it's l5-30 plug and a Coleman 25' extension cord. The manual is very good and a spark plug wrench included.

Cons: The bolts holding the shipping bracket were VERY tight. Too tight for open end wrench. They required a socket and short breaker bar to safely loosen. DO NOT try to get 'em off with the cheap wrenches included.

Other Thoughts: The engine's oil fill and drain are awkward to access. For first fill we tipped it 45 degrees so oil from the funnel would go downhill into the opening. To drain I'll get some help to lift and hold it waist high since my old man joints don't bend well. Be able then to channel old oil into a container and use a funnel with a tube
