Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These original ink cartridges work great - which is expected. They seem to last and the quality of print is great. I've used my printer for several years now and no issue with printing as sometimes happen with after-market cartridges. They are obviously more expensive than the after-market products, but in the past I had issues with such product, but never with these originals.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent product. Easy to 'install', December 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Excellent product. Easy to 'install'. My phone paired with this receiver effortlessly and the sound quality is very good - for the music I rip at high quality. My only issue with this received is that there isn't an on-off button, hence it connects to my phone as soon as I step into my home and my interfere with my Bluetooth headset. I just keep it disconnected from power until I need to use it. Obliviously, a button would really help here. However, considering the price, this is a great high quality product and I'm quite satisfied with this purchase.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product combines great design with high quality materials - at least that is how it looks and feels. This can fit either within the wall or outside of it. It was not too difficult to install, however, it did require for some reason drilling holes in the bottom supporting bracket - unclear why they couldn't do it at the plant and also attaching the side panels can be very tricky - the glue hardens extremely fast and hence there is no room for error here. Overall, very happy with this purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars My phone fits nicely and easily in the cradle, December 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall the cradle looks and feels very sleek and high quality. My phone fits nicely and easily in the cradle, and I'm very pleased with this purchase. The only issue with this cradle is that you cannot listen to music or speak on the phone using a wired headset when the phone is connected to the cradle, since the headphones jack at the bottom of the phone is blocked by the cradle. This is not an issue for me - as I use a Bluetooth headset - but may be a deal-breaker for some.

3.0 out of 5 stars Powerful and speedy laptop. Very mediocre tablet., April 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased this convertible laptop as I wanted a more powerful tablet - one that can run full windows programs such as office, Quicken and a bunch of other software applications, while maintaining the ease of use and touch screen capabilities of a tablet.

As a laptop, this is quite a powerful machine. It had a sturdy design and feel, hardware keyboard is very comfortable despite the smaller size compared to a standard keyboard, and the SSD allows this laptop to restart in just a few seconds(!!) and provides an overall excellent performance and responsiveness. As a pure laptop, this is one of the best and most comfortable laptops, I've used till date.

There are 3 issues I have with the overall physical design:
1. Form factor: I guess a better from factor would be the ability to fold the keyboard all the way to the back as done is some other convertibles, negating the need to search the keyboard every time one needs to heavily type or edit.
2. Keyboard charged separately from the screen (which actually contains the laptop hardware). As there is only one USB port, charging the keyboard while using a mouse, requiring connecting the keyboard to a separate power source instead of the main battery on the top portion.
3. Limited screen backwards bending. As the screen section contains all hardware except the keyboard, there is a limit to how much you can bend the screen back - otherwise the unit will just fall backwards due it's uneven weight distribution. This limitation can be very annoying if this laptop is placed on a low table or if you attempt to use it, keyboard attached, when lying on the sofa for example. There is a reason why most laptops can bend almost flat and I've only realized how important this is when using this laptop.

However, the above drawbacks are not as problematic as the attempt to use this as a tablet when the keyboard is detached.
The main problem has nothing to do with Asus design and everything to do with the limitations of MS Windows 8/8.1.

In all fairness, Windows was never designed to support the coarse touch of a finger but rather the pinpoint accuracy of a cursor operated by a mouse. And I'm not even sure if there is a way to combine these two capabilities (how should both left and right mouse click menus be combined for a finger use?) Indeed, when using the "tablet" apps (as opposed to full fledged software applications) designed around touch screen capabilities, the system behaves very well; but when trying to use regular software applications (e.g. a spreadsheet) without the hardware keyboard (and mouse) using touch only, expect only frustration as the smooth touch usage of any smartphone or tablet is just not there and really limit the usage of this as a tablet only for those tablet applications - which really defeats the purpose from my perspective of purchasing this laptop in the first place.

As an example of Windows 8/8.1 shortcomings when it comes to tablet mode usage is the software keyboard which uses almost half the screen and most times covers the text entry fields, requiring hiding and un-hiding the keyboard just to see what I've types. (e.g., I cannot type this review comfortably without connecting the physical keyboard)

In summary, if you are looking for a laptop with some tablet/touch capabilities, this is one of the better choices, especially when price as factored in. However, if you are interested in a powerful tablet which is also able to run full fledged Windows applications, then I guess you'll have to wait for Windows 9 or 10 or maybe even longer than that, as currently such a device does not yet exist; and maybe never will.

Not sure how much one can rate or describe a standard cable...
I use it to connect an 'old' PC turned into an entertainment center using XBMC to the TV in the living room.
Transmit both video and audio in excellent quality. Very happy with this purchase both in quality and price.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best "analog" games in a gaming world gone digital, January 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: KEVA Contraptions Plank Set (Toy)
As simple as this game is - 200 wood pieces of same shape (and two balls), it allows for countless hours of imaginative play time, were amazing and complex structures can be build and broken down - which just as fun :-)
An excellent game for practically any age group - and not just kids.
A great solutions for parents seeking quality time with their kids, away for the mind numbing electronic game consoles.

Excellent business card holder that is easy to use and seems more expensive than it's price.
Good design that allows pulling out cards as an effortless task.
