4 out of 5 eggs Good value, short on many things. 11/27/2016

This review is from: Samsung UN40KU6290 40-inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV (2016 Model)

Pros: Excellent panel!
Excellent gray tracking through whole range of grays, a rarity!
Excellent color gamut.
Excellent black when locking straight.
White uniformity is OK (can be better)
Nicely saturated pure colors.
Gamma shifted a bit towards CRT. To me it is a good thing. Can be tweaked in settings with minimal color bending.
Appeared to be able to do 4:4:4 (see explanation below).
Sound, if you use it, better than most TVs.

Cons: Lousy interface.
Cheapish built. (I guess expected for this price)
Required registration with Samsung for apps. Once in a while it allows to install some, but then again hijacks access to the store extorting personal info.
Appeared to loose ALL settings after loosing power. Holds it when in standby.
Tiny lag in any mode, even gaming.
Does not go in standby when used as PC monitor.

Other Thoughts: Purchased with the only intended use as PC monitor. Right away realized that my video card cannot pull 4K. Bought GTX750ti just to drive this monitor.
Have to turn off all enhancements off (like any other TV).
Generally very happy to have it as PC monitor, but there is definite deficiency: when test PNG loaded through USB - panel is definitely 4:4:4. When driven through HDMI, at 60Hz there is color edging on some columns. Looks like analog VGA out of pixel sync. Swithched to 30Hz - color edging is gone. But pure blue and red text still looks soft. It is not subsampled as 4:2:2 panels, all pixels are there, but it appeared softer than pure green or white. I believe this is a result of internal processing where RGB first converted into color-differential (to allow saturation and tint control on RGB signals). Unfortunately many reference implementations do reduce color resolution. This should be possible to solve in firmware, but I guess they will not allow that as it will cannibalize market for higher end PC monitors and TVs.
Anyway, I set it up as PC monitor and despite some rarely noticeable MINOR degradation of color resolution I'm keeping it.
It is much better for photo and video editing than most PC monitors. Able to calibrate it to do very accurate color grading.

I'm using it at 30Hz. This is not CRT or OLED, there is no flicker. To me it appeared that mouse lag is lowest at this refresh rate.

Generally pretty happy with it.

Oh, mine made in Mexico.

Naijiate Electric Unicycle Self Balancing Scooter - 14
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Just get it! It is fun! 11/15/2015

This review is from: Naijiate Electric Unicycle Self Balancing Scooter - 14"

Pros: Great fun! Actually useful as transport. I'm getting 7-8 miles out of it on flat (I'm 220 lbs). I just love it!
With my weight it can clime 10 degree pitch.
Included charger charges it from empty to full in hour or two. I believe this is pretty fast.

Actually I think it is very well engineered and manufacturing quality is descent.

Servo is smooth and gyro is precise. Wheel well balanced. When you lift it and tilt it - it will try to run full speed for second - there is no beat or vibration, all good.

Cons: It is maybe difficult and frustrating lo learn for some. Before you acquire proper technique you will get bruises on anklets. Till you actually learn it - you will be out of breath in 5 minutes.
Even with suitcase like handle - it is heavy to just carry around. Included belt helps to carry it on shoulder.
It takes about a month to fully master it, assuming you are doing it regularly. Training wheels is a must at the start.

Finish is a bit rough on this one, but I do not mind.

Other Thoughts: I bought exactly same model a year ago and absolutely love it. When family going for a walk in the park - I have this thing with me all the time. It can go 10MPH easily , but then beeps like crazy.
My wife getting jealous and started to learn it too! I might have to buy another one.

Once you master it - there is no more bruises and no sweat. It is nearly effortless. I'm 6'1" 220lbs pushing 50 and this thing is just fun for me.

I did not fall on this thing even once! Never ever! I learn it unassisted (but I used to skateboard, surf, roller skate, roller blade and ice skate). So is everybody around me who tried this thing. Once in a while you drop it and run, but it is very natural reflex to catch balance. I believe it is way safer than it appeared.
Even year later I still use belt. This is mostly to have easier start and then to catch easier when you step off, I do not have to bend down to hold it. I just walk it like a dog.
Year ago I did pay 100 more and it was best deal around a at the time than today at NewEgg.

Her is the tip - once you get rid of training wheels - you can drop steps a notch down. There is another set of holes for steps below those used at the factory. This will allow you to drop center of gravity lower from axis and will be easier to step on it unassisted. Less bruising too.

Good luck!

Sony MDR-ZX770BT/B Bluetooth Wireless Stereo Headphones w/Microphone NFC - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Appeared as Sony, comfortable.

Cons: Sounds like cheap cans from dollar store. These are not original, they don't sound like original and market seller does not return request for RMA.

Very dim highs and unbearable resonance at ~350Hz. Sony never sound like this! Maybe this is why there is whole refurbished lot?

Other Thoughts: Stay away. You being warned!
