Good quality brush, lathers up the face really well. Doesn't bother the skin while doing that. I like it.

5.0 out of 5 stars It has a very solid feel and feels good in the hand, November 17, 2014
It has a very solid feel and feels good in the hand. I've not used all the tools yet but they will surely come in handy. The screw driver and the pliers are actually very useful. The locking mechanism especially gives a good feel while using this tool.

For the price I love it.

Better than any screen guard. It's glass, not plastic. So well packed and easy to apply!

2.0 out of 5 stars USB ports not powered well, July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:
Has many USB ports

Cons:
Power output for each of the ports is very low. I could not get my portable HDD to power up on the hub, even after connecting the second USB pin which can be used for additional power.

My use of this device is for the Raspberry Pi, which I'm planning to run as a media server. However a powered hub not being able to power up a portable hard disk is plain crappy.

If you plan to use this to connect flash drives, etc you may get most use out of it, but I doubt it powers up any of the devices it mentions in the description - "USB Portable Hard Drives, USB CD-R/RW or DVD-ROM drives".

5.0 out of 5 stars A good combo of shaver and trimmer, November 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It feels better in the hand because of the thicker grip. The trimmer works well for intended purposes. The blade on the back side is a good addition to shape locks.

It's cheap, does what it is supposed to. I did not have a requirement of speed, so I'm totally satisfied.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality plugs, August 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use them with a 14 gauge wire and they are perfect for them. There shouldn't be any issues with smaller wires either, but you may need to bend them onto themselves to double the thickness. The screw on the plugs will hold them tightly, just make sure you have the required size screwdriver to tighten the screw to the required extent.

They fit just fine in my Denon AVR-1712 receiver.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not really that good., August 27, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I use this with an HTC Vivid phone. It does not charge the phone as quickly even with the 2A port even though the phone is rated at 1A (or something just above it). It's good though to keep my phone charging while I use it as my GPS.
Edit: My phone also gets hot over time while charging. Possibly because the current it received is not as clean.

It's a good quality product overall. Just wished it was a bit softer and thicker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent VFM laptop. Alright when it comes to performance, September 8, 2010
This laptop is an excellent choice taking into consideration the price it sells for.

A 3-core processor, 4GB DDR3 1066MHz Ram and 320GB HDD are more than enough for anyone who wants a laptop for routine daily work like browsing webpages on the internet, or doing reading on the computer (ebooks, e-newspapers, etc.), or for writing reports, making presentations and so on. I can easily watch 720p movies on the laptop without any issues with searching n rewinding / forwarding them.

What I cannot be expected to do on this laptop is play newer games or do multimedia transcoding or engineering graphics. You cant expect a $520 machine to be a Ferrari! I will summarize in short how I rate the individual components: (keeping in mind the price)

Processor : 3-core AMD phenom is excellent for any routine task. For most of the time, the processor will run at a lower speed of 800MHz to save power except when the 1800MHz is required. So, it really doesnt matter 90% of the time if you have a 1.5GHz Processor, or 3GHz Processor if you use it for home / office work. (includes watching movies too)

4GB RAM: 1066MHz DDR3 is a lot of RAM for anything you'd do on this laptop. Nothing will take up more than 2-2.5 GB of it, so 4GB gives enough headroom for future software.

320GB HDD: Decent for a primary hard drive. You can always buy a 1TB external for another $100 if you need...

14" screen: More than sufficient for readability. If you are buying a laptop for movies primarily, you'd use a bigger screen. Screen is pretty clear and resolution is good - 1366 x 768

Keyboard is excellent. Keys are soft and responsive. The touchpad is also decent, its got a rough surface, which I personally like as it gives some traction. But for prolonged usage, I'd say you would like a mouse as the pad interferes while typing.

Battery lasts anywhere from 2.5-3.5 hours. It lasted me around 2-2.5 hours, when I was having a Skype video chat for the entire duration. I'd give battery life a 4 star.

Cons:
Build could have been more sturdy.
No inbuilt bluetooth device
Laptop speakers let you down if you want to watch movies / listen to music in a room with several people. Not loud enough.
Fan is a little noisy when laptop gets heated, but for me it stays off for most part, so its not a biggie.

So, I give it 5 starts for the price/performance ratio. Keeping only specs in mind, id say its a 3.5/5 stars. I personally find it a good buy. Recommended!
