JAYS q-JAYS Dual Armature In-Ear Earphones - Black
JAYS q-JAYS Dual Armature In-Ear Earphones - Black

5.0 out of 5 stars Best and most durable earphone I have owned, 19 Dec 2011
I bought these almost 2 years ago and they still follow me everyday.

The sound is very very good. I came from Creative EP-630 and I was not disappointed.
Besides the obvious differences between earphones and headphones, I would say the quality is similar to the Shure SRH840s that I own as well.

I never had problems with the filters as some previous reviews. To be honest, I have never felt the need to replace the stock filters.

I am really surprised they are still working perfectly considering you have to pull directly on the cable in order to take them out of your ears.

Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice and small laser printer, 19 Dec 2011
I bought this printer as a home printer for small jobs like printing coupons, tickets or short articles.

The main advantage of this printer is its size. It is VERY small, lot smaller than my old Brother Laser printer.
Printing quality is good and toners are not that expensive considering the price of the printer. It is quite fast as well.

Two issues though:

- Considering its size, you can't leave paper in the printer when the lids are closed. So you need to store you paper elsewhere and feed it every time you use the printer.
- Thick paper does NOT work with the printer (by thick, I mean thicker than 100g/m≤)

I would recommend the printer for a light home usage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice concept but not fully exploited, 19 Dec 2011
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Nintendo Wii is a nice console with a great concept ahead of its time. The build quality is very good as usual with Nintendo, way above Sony and Microsoft.

It is a great console for party games, quizzes, etc. But note that you will have to buy 4 wiimotes if you really want to enjoy that part.

However, in solo mode and apart from a few exceptions, Wii games are not THAT exciting. There is a profound lack of first person shooters which would have benefited from the wiimotes. Graphically, it is not amazing either and you would rather not make the comparison with Xbox 360 and PS3.

In short, a good party console but that will cost you a lot in the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Durable Remote, 19 Dec 2011

Don't waste your time buying generic remotes, Nintendo did a great job with these.
Very high quality plastic and rubber cover.

The only downside is the lack of integrated battery so you need to buy rechargeable batteries.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and working, that's all, 19 Dec 2011
The case is similar to OEM cases that you can find in most shops for 2/3 times the price. However, the finish is not quite as good.
It is hard to close the front lid properly expect when you force it shut. Not sure it will last more than 10 disk swaps.

Would recommend it if you need a cheap case and you don't need to swap often the hard drive inside.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast but a bit noisy, 19 Dec 2011
I upgraded my MacBook Unibody (Late 2008) with this Hard Drive.

Flawless swap and I used Time Machine to restore my data. I noticed a significant speed bump over the stock hard drive (Toshiba 160GB)
even though it is also significantly noisier. Nothing terrible (not the usual clicks) but you can hear a constant hum similar to a low speed fan.

Would recommend anyway considering it is really fast and I am confident about Western Digital's hard drive reliability.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for making Baguettes, 19 Dec 2011
Good pan, does what it is supposed to do. Helps the baguettes the cook evenly.

Would not recommend washing it however as it is likely it will rust.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good value LED TV, 19 Dec 2011
For the price, it is hard to beat. You get LED screen with Full HD.
The image quality is very good (try the Shop image setting, brighter and more dynamic than the standard setting) and you
get plenty of outputs (VGA, 2 x HDMI, SCART, RCA). I use it for Freeview, DVD/Blue Rays and playing Wii/PS3 games.

There are some downsides however: the image processor is not great which means that if you use the 'Dynamic' setting, brightness adjustments are really slow and disturbing. The sound is really weak but this is not something uncommon for LED TV, plug it to a Hi-Fi system! Freeview is not HD, what a pity.

Recommended if you want LED and FULL HD at a bargain price without sacrificing too much.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good quality but not practical for jeans pockets, 19 Dec 2011
I was very pleased with the quality of this case. It is very thick and you can tell that your iPhone is well protected in it.
However, it is quite bigger than the Apple Bumper and made out of grip material that makes it impossible to take out of your jeans pocket.

For those reasons, I would not recommend the case.
