4.0 out of 5 stars ExPower Bluetooth Speaker Bar with Alarm: A Critical Review, 25 Aug. 2014
Length:: 2:34 Mins

This is one of two new speakers made by ExPower and it's extra features and extra speaker makes this the better of the two.

The speaker measures:
9.5" x 2.5" x 2.25" and weighs 1 lb.

Spec's:

* LED Display (shows time, FM Channel and alarm clock time)
* Bluetooth 3.0 (up to 75')
* Phone mic
* Micro SD card port
* Line in/ Aux in port
* FM radio
* Alarm clock (w/ multiple programming options)
* Rechargeable Li-Ion battery
* 80 Hz to 20 KHz

*** Design ***

Front panel:
* Aluminum grate covering three speakers. Two (1.75" diameter) left and right speakers, One 3" center speaker.

Top panel:
* Play, pause, phone button
* Back/ volume down button
* Forward/ volume up button
* Alarm clock set button
* FM button
* Bluetooth pairing button
* Microphone

Back panel:
* Line-in port
* SD-in port
* USB port
* On/Off button
* DC/5V port

*** Sound ***

Although made by the same manufacturer and having similar components, it's the added features that makes this more than just a "larger" version of the smaller wireless speaker.

Both of the speakers do NOT emphasize bass-centric music like rock, hip-hop--this is strictly a mid-ranged music bar. This is NOT high-fidelity but it's definitely acceptable.

The sound reproduction, although, with little to no amplification built in, produces more than acceptable sound.

So, if you're a music lover that listens to various kinds of music whenever the urge hits you, this is a good option, especially when considering that this speaker also has the rare feature of an alarm clock as well as a line-in feature.

See video for demo.

4 stars

2.0 out of 5 stars Waterproof HD Sportcam: A Critical Review.,, 24 Aug. 2014
It's rare that I give a product a very poor rating.

This product is between a 1 and 2 stars--because it just doesn't work. Even after 4 weeks and two frustrating and wasted bike trips.

***

This Sportcam, I realize, is a budget cam but I do expect some functionality.

The camcorder set includes:

* The Camcorder
* Waterproof outercase
* Bike handle
* Helmut handle
* Instruction booklet

The cam has two (2) main buttons a part from the Power button. The first is the Mode Button which enables you to switch between the camera and the video camera and the standard resolution recording and HD recording.

The second button is the Record button.

Although I am able to toggle from the various recording modes but the Record button doesn't work.

5.0 out of 5 stars MeasurePro Thermostat "TF1000" and Timer "CCT100": A Critical Review., 18 Aug. 2014
Length:: 1:37 Mins

MeasurePro has two new products that came out recently: their Cooking Thermostat and a multi-function cooking timer.

Both products work very, very well. The thermostat in particular was accurate, especially when measuring it against other thermostats in the kitchen.

*** Cooking/ Digital Timer (CCT100) ***

The cooking timer "CCT 100" is a combination of digital timer, clock and stopwatch that has wristband. On the backside there's a convenient magnet so you can place it on the refrigerator or perhaps the stove hood.

You can scroll through the different functions by the Clock/ Count up/ Timer.

* Clock--12 hr or 24 hr function
* Count up/ Count down--from 1 sec. to 99.59.59
* Timer- set a particular for meal preparation.

*** Thermostat (TF1000) ***

The Thermostat is a two-piece set which comes with the digital reader and a pen-styled cover.

I used the thermostat to judge how well my stove was cooking ground turkey. The direction mentioned that the minimum temperature to safely cook turkey is at 165 degrees.

The thermostat was able to registered the turkey's temperature before, during and after being cooked. Even measuring the room temperature--it was the exact same degree as our wall thermostat had registered.

Both products are very well made

3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Novelty. Dancing Water Speakers: A Critical Review., 14 Aug. 2014
Length:: 4:13 Mins

The Dancing Water Speakers is one of those rare items that makes you go, "Whoa! What's this about?"

The appeal begins and ends with the water show that imitates the sound spectrum of the music that the speaker is playing.

To be certain, this is NOT high fidelity, nor could I say that it's par for the course for the budget-minded shopper.

I wasn't impressed with the sound--and, there are a lot of private companies that make good and great speakers, speaker bars, bluetooth headphones and transmitters.

That being said, I can't seem to look away from this product anymore than walking past a Christmas tree that is beautifully decorated with lights and ornaments.

Despite my need for at least "good" audio, the novelty of this water show is too good to ignore and if someone you care about doesn't need high fidelity but would appreciate a nice gift to have on their desk at work, this definitely fits the bill.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Specialty Video Camera., 5 Aug. 2014
Length:: 0:41 Mins

This generic endoscope is a great specialty camera.

Although it says that it is only for Windows, it works well with Windows 8.1 as well as Mac OS X.9!

***

You can use this in place of Facetime if you want want to have a recording that not directly in front of the computer or if you want to show people or elements outside of the computers camera view.

But, an even better use is to use this with Quicktime Pro. Before it can be used, you have to adjust the settings in the Preference panel.

The camera has a maximum output of 720, not spectacular but it is certainly acceptable.

***

The set comes with:

* 5M/ 16 feet Endoscope camera
* Mini Disc of optional software
* handful of thin, wired stands

If you're into videography, this camera is indispensable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Phenomenal. RII Mini Keyboard ("I8"): A Critical Review, 4 Aug. 2014
Length:: 2:26 Mins

I see a lot of tech products but very few are really heads-above their competitors. In fact, most are the same product, made in the same factory overseas. But, this product is different and it's great.

The "I8" Mini Keyboard for, primarily, mobile devices is absolutely fantastic.

This device works as a wireless (Bluetooth) keyboard. It can work on the Windows, Mac and Chrome OS', but that's not practical because you'd use a full keyboard for your desktop and a laptop has a keyboard built in.

Where a device like this really shines is on your tablet and smartphones.

Believe it or not, the most difficult brand to pair to Bluetooth devices, in my experience, is Samsung; the easiest is HTC.

I don't see many "mini" keyboards, I have one from 3 years ago from Anker and it's about half the size of the I8, and to be honest, I didn't see how anyone with an average size hand could use such small keys.

I like that this keyboard is significantly bigger yet portable enough to carry anywhere.

It measures:

5 " x 3 5/8" x " and weighs 3.7 oz.

It features:
* Full Qwerty keyboard
* 0-9 numeric pad
* Left "mouse" key
* Right "mouse" key
* Directional keys
* Audio keys for Volume, Play/Plause, Forward, Back, Mute
* Magnifying key
and...
* Touchpad

This is simply phenomenal.

On my Samsung Galaxy Note tablet and my Galaxy Note 3 phablet--in the video clips you'll see how easy it is to negotiate emails, audio files and games.

If you carry around a smartphone (without a keyboard) and especially a tablet, this portable, inexpensive mini keyboard would make a great edition to your electronics gear.

I love this.

5 big, big stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Mocreo AIO USB Travel charger, 4 Aug. 2014
The Mocreo AIO USB Travel charger is a multi-national usb charging plug. That is to say, this device will plug into a number of wall units and provide current to your usb-powered device.

The manufacturer insists that it has no ability to convert voltage. The device can operate between 100-240v / 50/60Hz with a maximum output of 2100mA and 6A from an AC.

This is a device that measures:

2 3/8" x 1 " x 2 3/16" and weighs 3.6 oz.

Although you have two (2) usb ports to charge your mobile devices, it may be best to just charge one--1--device at a time. The device doesn't have power surge protection, so it may be prudent to charge one device at a time or to be on the safe side carry a couple of high-capacity external batteries and use this device to charge them--that way you still have those safe devices to charge your devices.

On the front side of this mechanical device, you have to have a slider that opens the ac connector to the "US/AUS", "UK" or "Europe."

The only thing that bothers me about this device is that it feels a bit flimsy. I think if you push or pull a bit too hard for this device something is going to get jammed or fall off.

Other than that, this seems to be a handy device to own if you're planning on traveling outside of the UK or the US or even the Far East.

5.0 out of 5 stars TaoTronics "TT-DL05" Touch Powered, LED Desk Lamp: A Critical Review., 29 July 2014
Length:: 1:50 Mins

The "DL05" is an excellent, touch-enabled Desk Lamp.

There are several touch-powered desk lamps out there and with various levels of light amplification. To tell the truth, there really isn't a distinct difference in illumination beyond maybe the 4th level.

The 7-levels on this DL05 is very subtle, yet noticeable.

The system includes:

* Lamp
* AC cord
* Instruction booklet

* Cleaning cloth (gift)

The lamp, itself, has a soft, textured feel to it and is barely 15" high.

Some of the peripheral benefits are:

* Eco-friendly lights
* Low power consumption (9w)
* Long-life--40000+ hours.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Close Look at Mocreo's Soundbar: A Critical Review, 27 July 2014
Length:: 6:05 Mins


The Mocreo soundbar is absolutely identical to JoyiQi "C1" soundbar.

The good news is, is that the soundbar is a good buy regardless of the seller.

With a 3.5mm jack, the speaker also functions as an external speaker for older audio devices or replaces your cellphone or tablet's interior speaker.

One the things I immediately recognized is that the soundbar is well built and it's got some weight to it.

Also, the speaker is water-resistant.
The set comes with:

+ Speaker
+ micro usb to usb plug
+ 3.5mm plug
+ Bluetooth 3.0
+ 6w (3w x 2)
+ Frequency range: 120Hz - 18KHz

The unit measures:
7" x 2.75" and weigh 1.1 lb

***

This speaker bar also has a loudspeaker and you can use the speaker to have telephone conference.

***
The sound for a consumer grade speaker is very good, not bass-intensive.

The only thing that bothers me about this unit (and, it's identical sister) is the buttons are hard to negotiate because its barely raised above the surface.

The sound, in my opinion, is better than average but not stellar. In a price vs. value, it is definitely worth a grade of B+.

In the accompanying video, I play a few tracks to demonstrate its capabilities.
