Useful, but Flimsy Microsoft USB Stick
Pros: - Comes with a full license so you can upgrade your computer and not have to buy another OEM license.
Cons: - Flimsy USB I have ever seen. Do not leave this outside of the packaging because it is clearly designed for a one or two time use.
Overall Review: I was fortunate in that I was able to upgrade from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro without a prompt for a license, so unfortunately, I didn't really need this. Sadly, it is not returnable. And yes, the computer is catching the updates.
Pros: - Good sound - Good Mic w/flexible boom - Charges quickly - Quickly hooked to Bluetooth - Decent controls
Cons: - Doesn't fit head very well - If you lean over, the heavy headset starts to try to slide off your head - Headband has hardly any grip at all on head
Overall Review: - Would only recommend if you plan on keeping your head horizontal at all times - Would not buy again due to headset wanting to slip off if you move your head up or down
Does What It Is Supposed To Do!
Pros: - Gives you the codes you need to diagnose - Had engine light come on - found out it was an O2 sensor, so could drive without worrying about engine damage - Well worth the price just for that instance
Cons: - No cons I had with the unit
Overall Review: - I would recommend this product - I would also buy it again - This might not be a super-detailed review, but it did what it was designed for without a fuss
5 Years In A Row
Pros: - Does Its Job Quietly - Great Price - Highly Rated in a Number of Tests - Probably Not in Bed with the NSA. ;-) - This is the Best Version Kaspersky Puts Out
Cons: - None that I Personally Have - Russian Firm (I Don't Have a Problem; but Your Political Mileage May Vary), although U.S. variant now totally based in U.S.
Overall Review: This is my fifth year with Kaspersky and I always buy this version (versus the similarly named Internet Security). I have had no problems and, as you can see, have it installed on my kids devices, etc. If you wait, Newegg always puts this on sale for a great price. I would definitely recommend. Lastly, but importantly, Kaspersky Total Security always gets a PC Mag Editor's Choice.
Comes Up Short
Pros: - Like Clamshell Entry - External looks fine - Seems to run okay
Cons: - Super-short cable (16 inches) - My son's super-cheap LG model came with a much longer cable - White cable - Make this is for the Apple Mac fanboys, but it will get dirty and discolor.
Overall Review: I just ordered a replacement longer cable because this one is so short. I am using this with a desktop that is in a bottom cabinet and will be using the front top panel USBs for connecting to this BD/DVD/CD player. When one spends this amount of money, a short cable should not be an issue. I also thought the Pioneer name might mean something since they made awesome audio back in the day. It just means another old brand name drug in the mud. Made in China as usual, of course, but for this money it ought to have been made in Japan. I would not buy again.
Product is made in Taiwan, which typically has better quality than China and is more expensive to manufacture there, so Audio-Technica took no shortcuts. Love the detachable cords of of the headset. Bag for everything that is included is also very handy. Nicely packaged and does a good job of keeping noise out. I bought these for my 14-year-old daughter for her birthday and she is very happy with them. I might even buy a pair for myself. Highly recommend!
