Most Favorable Review

Nice kitchen gadget for the lazy chef

Rosewill RHPC-19001 6 Qt Electric Pressure Cooker 10-in-1 Multicooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt, Cake, Eggs, Saute/Searing, Food Steamer, Warmer, Sterilizer w/ 17 Programmable Cooking Presets
Rosewill RHPC-19001 6 Qt Electric Pressure Cooker 10-in-1 Multicooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Yogurt, Cake, Eggs, Saute/Searing, Food Steamer, Warmer, Sterilizer w/ 17 Programmable Cooking Presets

Pros: -Stainless steel insert -slow cook function

Cons: The display looks great but the letters next to the function LED's are very hard to read. I wonder what genius of a designer thought it would be a good idea to print silver letters on a silver background. Only 3 slow cook time settings are available: 30 minutes, 6 hours and 9.5 hours

Overall Review: The 'spaceship look' is taking away from the practicality of this device. It seems like it was designed by geeks who have never cooked in their life. The round dial is unnecessary, selecting the setting directly by using buttons that are easily readable would have been better. Other than that it seems to be a solid construction with extra gadgets (that went right in the trash). The extra rubber seal is a nice perk though.

Pros: it does burn discs. Cheap.

Cons: if you burn over 4GB, you consistely will have errors. Large movies will be playable up until 15-10min, and then they will hang and eventually stop playing. It seems like the burning error always occurs at the same spot

Overall Review: Item's model # isn't listed on Samsung's web site, can't be registered, so forget the manufacturer's warranty.

iKross Noise-Cancelling Wireless Bluetooth Handsfree Headset with USB Docking Charger / Neckstrap for Apple iPhone 5S, 5C, 5, 4S, 4 And all Bluetooth-enabled Cellphone and Tablet

Pros: +magnet car charger +cheap

Cons: -ear bracket uncomfortable -muffled sound

Overall Review: This is my third headset and won't be my last. If you have a hard time understanding who you talk to, what's the point of a headset? You'll be concentrating on listening rather than what's going on on the road.

great design at this price point

Pros: Most advantages have been mentioned in other reviews. This case comes without PSU, which is great so you can pick a quiet one. Most cheap cases come with even cheaper and usually loud and unreliable PSUs.

Cons: any con would unfair at this price point

disappointed

Shuttle SZ68R5 Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel Z68 1 x HDMI Barebone
Shuttle SZ68R5 Intel Socket H2(LGA1155) Intel Z68 1 x HDMI Barebone

Pros: nice small form factor, ICE cooling system, Z68 chipset

Cons: -noisy PSU fan makes silent ICE cooling system obsolete -front is designed very cheaply, power button is behind a plastic/alu front panel. drive flap is flimsy, that's the first thing that will break off. I wonder what design amateurs work at shuttle these days. I owned 3 other Shuttles before this one and all were much better designed and built. I am disappointed.

Overall Review: I returned this and built a micro atx system with a quiet PSU

don't buy these

Bose® Companion® 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System
Bose® Companion® 2 Series II Multimedia Speaker System

Pros: they do make sound, but...

Cons: ... when idle there is an annoying hissing sound. The sales man at the BOSE shop here in Vegas wanted to persuade me that it is normal?! I returned these and am glad I got CREATIVE's T20 now.

Overall Review: I have BOSE in my car and used to work with their system when I was a DJ. Big fan of the sound dock too, but this speaker set is not worthy. Or it is the beginning of decreasing quality of a once great brand name.
