This review is from: Microsoft 4YH-00005 Black 3 Buttons 1 x Wheel USB Wired Optical 800 dpi Mouse
Pros: Cheap, works fine.
I've been using this mouse for about 5 years now and it still works as well as the day I bought it. Can't go wrong with that.
Other Thoughts: Like what other people said, this mouse is nothing special. But being so cheap I expected it to break after a couple years. It's still going strong after 5 years so I have to recommend it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Canon EOS 60D 4460B003 Black 18.0 MP Digital SLR Camera - Body Only
Pros: Price, battery life, non-photography extras, solid viewfinder. Decent ergonomics. Light sensor is alright.
Other Thoughts: Very nice. I upgraded from an old ti rebel that was like 6 years old or so and I really appreciated the new features in this one. The pentaprism viewfinder is a lot brighter than the pentamirror based rebel (probably the biggest reason I upgraded). Although if you use auto focus that doesn't matter. Someone was saying the autofocus sucks and can't be controlled but there is a button that looks like a cross right on the top right shoulder of the camera where you can select the autofocus location. Who uses autofocus anyway?
Onboard flash blows but it says that right in the owners manual. Perhaps I am being naive but I hope anyone that buys this camera knows that if you're going to be using the flash often you need to upgrade.
Uhhhh battery life is like way better than I thought it was going to be. I don't use autofocus so that probably helps, but even with an IS lens and a 5 hour hike through the mountains my battery still says full.
Megapixel count is fine. I mean, the difference between a 12mp and this 18mp isn't really a big deal. I had a 12mp picture blown up to a ~2ft by 2ft print and it looked fine so....
That's about it.
Basically why you should buy this camera over a Nikon is because Canon takes out a full page ad in National Geographic and writes about an endangered species for advertisement and Nikon has Ashton Kutcher..... Both cameras will probably do you well although I have only owned Canon.
This review is from: Samsung UN32EH5000 32" Class 1080p 60Hz LED HDTV
Pros: Color and contrast is great. Sharpness and color bleed are decent.
Onboard speakers are actually not terrible.
Cons: Overall a cheap and poorly engineered setup. As others have said, there is minimal connectivity and what really ground my gears was the HDMI ports are on the side. So instead of a stealthily hidden cord comming out the back I have an eye sore jutting out from the side. I can understand side ports for wall mounting but why not one on the side and one on the back? That would make too much sense I guess.
The base is also another engineering fail. You need an extra long screw driver to screw the base to the TV connector. My other Samsung TVs had a modular base that doesn't need any tools to assembly.
I also hate the rectangular base. Again, my other models have round bases which look infinite times better.
Also the remote also controls my Samsung computer monitors....
It's also surprisingly thick (i mean like... 5cm or so) when my other Samsung LED TV is like 1 or 2cm thick.
Other Thoughts: Overall if I sit back and think about it this is a fine TV because the picture is great and that's what a TV is.
There are just a lot of things that make me wonder if Samsung engineering quality is slipping. Seriously: why would you put both ports on the side?
It's a fine TV and all the cons I have listen here are pretty superfluous so... if I would have paid more for this TV I would have been mad but it was on the cheap so it's fine.
