    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good
    This has to be one of the best deals on a BlueTooth Headset there is as of this writing.It paired easily, and lost its connection only once during an entire day (my phone?).In keeping with the well known practice of the 3 day conditioning LiIon batteries, I expected it to run out of juice before getting past the "all day" mark.I kept it on for 14 hours, and it never even blinked.WindStop(tm) is truly amazing, and I drove down the interstate, windows open, and even some passing tractor trailers were undetectable by callers (!).Plus, it sits OUTSIDE one's ear instead of an ear "bud" style, which prevents fit issues, and causes less harm on the ole' eardrum.It's quite uncomfortable with (sun)glasses), and it's possible that that my ear was a bit small for the loop.Otherwise, it worked like a dream.

    5-0 out of 5 stars works EXACTLY as advertised
    Unwrapped this headset and it works exactly as advertised.Range is approximately 30 ft but interference and crackling starts around 10 ft.Pairing (Nokia 3360) was easy and the unit has excellent battery life.The 'windstopper technology' really does work, no wind noise even when it's blowing about 15 mph.Conversations are actually clearer when driving my truck than when just using the phone.
    This may sound like an advertisement but I've been amazed that all the claims made are actually true.
    A few other things.Pressing the multifunction button once activates voice dialing, aesthetics are not quite as nice as other units but the unit is comfortable and easy to use.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset
    Using it with a Treo 650.Seems to be solid and well built, no fidgety little bits to break off.Sound quality is good, starts to crackle if I'm more than 10 feet away from the phone - although from reading forums it seems to be due to the Treo's weak bluetooth implementation rather than the headset itself.

    At 23 grams it's a bit heavier than I would have liked.The fit is fairly snug, but could still be improved.Drive on a bumpy road and it's gonna flop around uncomfortably.

    If I were to buy again, I would look for a headset with the same sound and build quality, but with better fit and less weight (maybe around 15 grams).In this price range ($40) there aren't many options, maybe I'd try the Cardo Scala 500 and see how that compares.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great sound quality and battery life!
    So given that I now have a new bluetooth phone I figured it was high time to get myself a good bluetooth headset. I read a number of reviews and compared different models. There were a few that appealed due to their geek factor (the Jabra BT800 Bluetooth Headset in particular because of it's screen and ability to dial phonebook entries) but given that they all got panned for poor audio quality or extreme weight I decided to look for something a little more practical. After reading extensive reviews of about 15 different headsets I settled on the Logitech Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset given that all the reviews were consistent in their praise of it's audio quality and comfort factors. Now that I have it I figured I would add my own review into the merry fray.

    When I got the unit it was entombed in the standard plastic casing that requires near military levels of might and force to open. Luckily I have an implement designed for the job and made quick work of opening the package to reveal the headset, instructions, and an A/C charger. As per the instructions the first thing I did was plug the charger into it and let it sit for four hours. The charger itself is well designed and fairly small. The plugs are rotated 90 degrees from a normal plug and the brick is narrow enough to plug it into a power-strip without blocking any other outlets. The adapter has a decently long cord with a small plug that fits neatly into the backside of the headset.

    While it was charging I took a moment to read the manual and look at the actual headset. It was a little larger than some of the others I've seen, but just as light. It has a very simple interface - a toggle switch for adjusting the volume, and an "action" button for turning the headset on and off as well as taking and rejecting calls. The action button is actually an LED which can turn red or blue to indicate various statuses. Although the simple user interface prevents some really advanced features it does make using the unit simple. You really only need to hit one button to do anything (aside from muting - you press and hold the volume button for a second to do that) and it's pretty intuitive in figuring out what you want to do.

    Once the unit was charged I paired it with my phone. This process was surprisingly simple - I held the action button for 10 seconds until the light started flashing red and blue. This put the headset in discoverable mode and I just had to tell my cell phone to add a new device. After typing in the pre-selected password they were instantly paired. Now whenever I turn the headset on (pressing the action button for four seconds) they instantly pair and the headset automatically goes into headset mode.

    I also paired it with my Powerbook. Unfortunately that broke the pairing with my phone so I won't be using it very often with the powerbook. For users who are looking for a good VOIP headset this might be an ideal solution. OSX fully supports the headset profile and when it was connected routed all sounds through the headset. I did a quick recording test and it did indeed pull audio in from the microphone as expected. After that experiment I re-paired the headset with my phone and started some audio tests to determine the sound quality.

    The main selling point of the Logitech Mobile Freedom Headset in my mind is its amazing audio quality. I called several people in a number of different situations. First in a quiet room with no air movement. I then turned on some music quietly in the background. Finally I went for a drive and tried the headset with the air conditioning off, on, and then finally with the drivers window open. For all but the final test wit the window open the headset sounded fantastic for both ends of the call. Some of the people I was talking to said it sounded clearer than when I was using the handset held up to my face. With the window rolled down (and the headset on the window side of my face) there was a little wind noise, however it was still possible to hear me - something that no other headset on the market could muster to my knowledge. With its 7 hours of talk time I could see using this for a majority of my phone calls!

    Overall impressions:
    I'm impressed and would give the Logitech Mobile Freedom Bluetooth Headset a 9/10 rating. It's quite usable, has incredible sound quality, and is comfortable enough that I can wear it for hours and nearly forget that it's there. The only two things I can mark them down on would be that the unit is slightly larger than some of the competition and that you can only pair the headset with one device at a time. I would find being able to pair it with two or more devices incredibly useful given that I have both a bluetooth laptop and cell phone. Well worth the $50 on Amazon.com!

    4-0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT for the price!!!
    Ordered it Tuesday... received it Thursday. For the price this headset is really hard to beat. And with the extra $30 off for getting an Amazon credit card, wow... a functional Bluetooth headset for only $12 *shipped*??? (And it's $2 cheaper today than it was last week!)

    The sound quality is actually very good, although since it's not one of those in-ear headsets you might have trouble hearing anything in a loud environment. And for people with large ears it's not the easiest to put on, but it's VERY light. Range is excellent, too.

    Buy this headset! You won't be disappointed. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great companion for your iPod Shuffle
    This is an excellent way to recharge your Shuffle away from the computer in a hassle free manner. Just plug it into the wall and you are done, no wires. The plug also folds in for easy storage, just like any other Apple or Canon Elph charger.

    Say you ran out charge in the gym or in a non-tech-savvy friend's house, just pull this out of your bag and ready to go in a few minutes!

    It can also be used to charge any other device which has a USB recharging capability. I have tested in on Palmone's Zire PDA so far and it works great. I am already looking for a USB cable for my Sony Ericsson phone. A possible to solution to mutiple chargers on your next trip.

    Maybe a little bit overpriced but it still is affordably priced. Nice addition to your iPod Shuffle!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Idea
    Thisis a great thing for when you are traveling without your laptop. You can just plug it in at the nearest outlet, and charge your ipod (or whatever).

    Out of all the devices to speak on with your cellular phone, the cell phone industry has finally found an awesome device.This headset is comfortable, has great sound quality, does not cover your entire ear and make you look like a space alien as does the Motorola devices and overall it is an exceptional device.Feel free to email with questions.(...)

    3-0 out of 5 stars BT200 vs BT250V
    I am just purchasing a BT250V (I have not yet received it.)I've been using my BT200 for over a year and it's been GREAT!Good sound quality and features.Comfortable to wear all day and fits well.After a couple of days of use, you don't even notice it's there.More importantly, the 250 has almost twice the battery life of the 200 (7 vs 4). I don't know the the vibrating feature is a plus.I would think it adds mass and so, more weight.I'm not sure I need my ear vibrating.

    From the mind and labs of sound genius, Woody Norris, The Jabra is a great unit.

    (I only gave the BT250V three stars, since I have not yet received it.If it works as well as my BT200, it will rate five stars.)

    4-0 out of 5 stars Solid product...
    I first bought a bluetooth headset when I had my T616 with ATT wireless and it was absolute trash.. (Sony HB65) I got a bad first taste of bluetooth but since then I got a HS820 from a coworker and it was decent but felt flimsy and unsecure against my head.. The BT250v is much more secure and the audio quality is great.Same model as the BT250 I just liked the all black style of the 250v (I turn off the vibrate mode). I have not had a problem at all with reception or the range on the device.I really like this headset... BTW works great with RIM 7290 if you are wondering!!!

    3-0 out of 5 stars Two things to note about this product
    I fell in love with the bluetooth module when I got my first bluetooth enabled phone.The idea of being able to jus tleave your phone in your pocket, in your house on the counter, or elsewhere, and walk around up to 30 feet without holding the phone was just awesome.Two things about this phone, however, that made this appeal diminish over time:

    1. The 30ft. radius degrades over time.Although you should still be able to get 30ft six months down the road, the reception will be extremely scratchy.The quality of this receptoin is based on your battery in the phone, which degrades over time as well.
    2. The construction of the product is flimsy.If you are like me and put things in your pocket, beware that this will cause the plastic and rubber to disconnect from each other, making the wires inside visible.I also lost a button - it popped out when the parts disconnected.So if you buy this, take care of it.It will still work, but it will just be that much more annoying.

    Hope this helps.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Lifetime of unreplacable battery: just beyond 1 yr warranty
    I got a BT200 (appears to be nearly the same as the BT250v) 15 months ago.It worked well and I liked it a lot despite annoying background clicking and short battery life.Now, after just over a year, its battery often won't last a day of standby let alone conversations.Jabra support says they have no spare parts or service and offered me a 20% discount on a new one.In other words, beware that this is a disposable product!I also have a BT-110, which uses a AAA cell that has much longer life and can be removed for recharge and/or replacement. ...

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Get ready for total freedom with the Jabra BT800, an advanced Bluetooth headset with the features lots of folks have been waiting for. With the BT800, your phone actually becomes the accessory, as the headset lets you control virtually every major function of your phone. With simple controls, a built-in LCD display, and powerful sound clarity and noise reduction technology, this is a must-have for Bluetooth-enabled phones.

    No matter how fancy or powerful a headset may be, it's not all that useful if it isn't comfortable. Fortunately, the BT800 has comfort covered. The ergonomic earhook makes for easy wearing on either ear, while the unit is stylishly contoured to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

    All the functions you use most often on your phone are conveniently available on the BT 800. Using just four controls-- the mute button, jog wheel, 'Answer' and 'End' buttons-- accessing the functionality you need is easy and natural. For example, the jog wheel, which is used for scrolling through menu functions in standby mode, becomes the volume control during a call. Meanwhile, a blue backlit display shows caller ID on incoming calls so you know who's calling instantaneously-- no need to fish through your pocket and look at your phone. Plus, you can use the display to choose from five included ringtones, or even set the headset to vibrate when a call arrives.

    The BT800 offers optimum sound quality in all environments, thanks to unique digital signal processing technology (DSP). The DSP's automatic volume control compensates for noisy surroundings by increasing the listening level accordingly. In addition, noise cancellation technology means that the incoming caller can hear you more clearly.

    NOTE: The BT800 is designed to work optimally with devices that support the Bluetooth Handsfree profile. Some features such as the Caller ID will not be possible if this profile is not supported. Please check with your phone manufacturer for details of profiles supported.

    3-0 out of 5 stars wish it would fit better
    The sound quality from this unit is better than any other that I have tried and, I guess, that is the most important thing.

    That being said, it IS heavy and, worst of all, it does not fit worth a damn.It takes me a minute or so of two handed wrestling (so much for the safe-to-use-while-driving theory) to get it on and, when it is, it is not at all secure. You have to hold your head sort of like you would if you had a book balanced on top. Too sudden of a move and it will flap around and/or fall off.I even tried taking some of the excellent gells that came with my wired jabra unit and forcing them on to this one.I did some surgery on one with an exacto knife, but it was no go.

    All in all, when my phone rings while I am driving, I usually look over at the jabra (where it has fallen onto the passenger seat), sigh, and reach for my headset.Probably will end up on ebay.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Other than its weight it is very good.
    I've had this headset for a couple of months now.

    The sound quality is great, in and out. Battery lasts me 2 to 3 days depending on use, which I think is fine. The caller ID is a neat idea but it only shows the phone number with a 1 and area code all bunched together (eg. 15195553234) making it hard to read and in my opinion rendering it useless.

    The only complaint I have about this device is its extreme weight. At 25grams it hurts my ear just thinking about wearing it. After about 10 minutes I have to take it off or atleast re-adjust it. If you have small or sensitive ears I would highly recommend getting another headset that's closer to 15 grams. I have a friend with this same headset who has larger ears and he has no complaints.

    Because of its weight the headset is also unstable. A tilt of the head will easily make the headset move out of place.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Headset; But Lacking a Few Things
    I bought and returned this.It was heavy and I could not wear it for a long time.The pairing process with my LG PM-325 was long and I had to call Jabra to get it completed.The caller ID is a great concept by not very functional since you can not look at it while you are wearing the head set.This is good for someone who does not talk for a long time and does not want to keep the headset on between calls.The "Noise-Cancelling" is not worth it.

    I ended up buying a Jabra FreeSpeak 250 and I am much happier.It is great to wear all day.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Overhyped
    This is one of those products where the anticipation is better than the ownership. The BT800 seemed like a good headset based on the available on-line literature, but it doesn't measure up in practice.

    First, its materials and construction remind me of the interior of a rental Chevy Cavalier. Meaning, both are too cheap for such an expensive headset. It neither looks nor feels solidly made.

    Second, inspite of the above, this headset is HEAVY. After about 15 minutes wearing it, it feels like a piece of lead on an earclip.

    Third, combined with the above, the BT800 isn't physically stable. Its size and weight make it prone to flopping around with even just a slight turn of your head. The overly-articulated yet too-loose earclip design exacerbate the problem.

    (Speaking of the earclip, its 3 points of articulation all rely on friction to stay in place. I feel they will soon wear out, and become too loose to wear the BT800 any more.)

    Fourth, the controls aren't intuitive. There are too many buttons; other, easier-to-use headsets accomplish the same features with fewer buttons. Additionally, the buttons provide poor tactile feedback; you can't tell if you've pressed one all the way without looking.

    Fifth, and most importantly, the sound quality is poor. The volume is often too low, even at its max setting. There's an abundance of static, too, even if the phone and headset are close to each other, not blocked from each other, the phone has perfect signal strength, and your caller does, too.

    Finally, the included belt-mounted case is almost useless, as the BT800 does not properly fit inside.

    The only pros: The mic is good, as others can hear me without problems. The screen is VERY handy for Caller ID and headset setup. And if you ignore the manual (which says to press a recessed switch in the BT800 with an included mini-stylus), pairing is a snap via the displayed menu.

    I'll wait for the Motorola HS850 to arrive, and after I try it, look for my BT800 here or on eBay.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply, The Best Bluetooth Headset up today.
    It's the most comfortable to wear. The sound is unbeatable. The capability to have several profiles (phones) let you select which one you want to use with the headset and if Bluetooth is on, you have automatically set headset in that phone.

    The battery last at least all day long if you are a heavy user, or you'll have several days if you use it moderately.

    Combine this with the Jabra A210 and you'll enjoy wireless freedom with your 2.5 mm jack phone (even used with your home wireless phone).

    Weighing less and an ounce, the FreeSpeak BT250 is constructed from a soft, sound-absorbing elastomer material that reduces distortions, resulting in crisp sound quality. The earpiece also features the new Jabra MiniGel, a soft, ergonomic gel tip that channels sound directly into your ear for better reception, improving your ability to hear conversations clearly even in noisy environments.

    The device works up to 30 feet away from your mobile phone, so you can talk and walk freely even if your phone is inside your briefcase, pocket, or across the room from you. It also provides you easy, intuitive volume controls, and features LED and audible status indicators, and you'll get an average of up to 8 hours talk time and 240 hours standby on the BT250's batteries.

    3-0 out of 5 stars NOT COMFORTABLE
    In general I am okay with this headset, I am using it with a TREO 650 which lends itself to other issues, the headset is not advanced enough to work automatically with the treo.My main complaint is it is not adjustable to my ear.I actually have to use the big ear gel to get it to stay on because the part that goes over your hear is about 1 cm too high over my ear, so the big ear gel holds it up....It fits my husband perfectly, so maybe it is that I have smaller ears, it just seems to me that there should be a better way to make it fit.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Generally happy
    I have been using this device for two months, and have been generally happy with it - the audio fidelity is good, the unit is comfortable, the battery life is long and, although I haven't tested the maximum range, I usually use it at 10 to 12 feet from the phone (Nokia 6820).My house is in a marginal reception area for Cingular, and using the headset allows me to put the phone in a "sweet spot" with an unusual orientation, giving me three or four bars instead of one.

    The "belt clip" is a joke.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A good Bluetooth handsfree kit, but with a few problems
    The FreeSpeak is no doubt a reasonably good performer. The sound on it is reasonably clear and the microphone does a good job too. My only complaint on it is that once I paired mine and turn the kit on, my PDA (a Sony Clie PEG-UX50) would no longer be able to connect to the phone (a SonyEricsson T610) via bluetooth unless the kit is switched back off. Could be a flaw with either the phone's design and/or the Bluetooth specification (I never really did test it with a different phone to verify the problem), but since I am able to receive calls while my PDA is connected to the internet (I have GPRS enabled on my line), it would be nice to be able to answer a call without either talking on my phone or taking the PDA offline. Still, a good starter kit if you don't have any other Bluetooth device paired with your phone.

    Update: Well, I've managed to get a Motorola V600 and tried the same headset on it, and the same problem persists- you can't connect other Bluetooth devices to the phone while the headset is connected. I am now also fairly certain that the problem is with Bluetooth's specifications as I was unable to exchange pictures between the phones while the PDA was accessing one of the phones. So, okay. No fault of the phones, PDA or the headset. Just the way Bluetooth works in general.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Poor belt clip design
    I don't have much to say about the 250 other than to point out the really poor design of the belt clip/charger. The 250 is supposed to click into this holder (which connects to the power adaptor for charging). This holder is designed to clip onto your belt so that you can carry the 250 when is is not in use. Okay, I agree that you will look extremely nerdy if you have your phone AND your earpiece hanging from your belt but sometimes you need to put the things away and the Freespeak 250 is really too fragile to carry in your pocket. The only problem with this is that the 250 will easily fall out of the holder and if you use it you WILL lose it. It is only a matter of time. My 250 lasted about 45 seconds and when I went to get it from the belt clip it was GONE. Not the holder but the 250 itself. Some lucky stiff at the Houston airport picked it up and walked away.

    I also thought that the 250 was not well made. When I would push the on/off or volume buttons I could feel the housing "give" a little, as if the buttons were about to collapse into the housing. A little too flimsy and not indication of a long life expectancy for the earpiece.

    I suggest that you consider another alternative - at $90 the 250 is simply overpriced.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not Ready for Prime Time
    I have used this headset with my Treo 650 and have been very disapointed with it's performance. It may be a function of the Treo's Bluetooth capabilities so keep that in mind and do not waste your money on this headset if you are using a Treo.

    It has very poor range; arm's length at best. Outdoors it is useless. It has times when it will refuse to pick up a call. The voice quality is also poor with hissing and crackling. The only place it seems to be remotely useful is in the car where it is within arm's reach and the hissing is only moderate. This is pretty expensive to only be able to use part of the time. Talk time is also much shorter than advertised.

    My $.02, save your money for something else.

    Update: Recently purchased the new Treo 650 headset by PalmOne. That is the new Bluetooth 1.2 version, not the clone of this Jabra. Much, much better. Now I have a headset that I can use all the time. I have completely replaced all my wired headsets. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Unbeatable price.
    With amazon.com price of $20.05 for this printpack, cost per print is just unbeatable, whether from a lab or from competition such as HP.Print quality from Picturemate deluxe is nothing less than amazing, Epson has a winner in this printer and printpack.

    5-0 out of 5 stars picturebug
    I love my epson picturemate.It prints great pictures.I prefer glossy prints so that is a plus for me.I have a Canon A60 digital and it is so easy to download the pictures on my computer and then I can edit them (with any software) and then just print them out.I have been working on a scrapbook and it is so convenient to be able to just take a picture and then print it right away.The only drawback is that it is rather slow.If you have taken a lot of pics it can be quite time consuming to print them all at one time.I try to download them into different folders by date/event or whatever and then just print a few at a time.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Top Tier Product Once You Get the Hang
    I Agree with "Great Prints", PictureMate produces top quality prints at about half the price of its competitors. Look at the price of the refill packs for the competition and pay attention to the number of prints per box, you will find that they cost between 50 and 60 cents per prints. That is where your true cost, and true savings accrue. PictureMate is 29 cents per print. The quality, as always from Epson is Outstanding. One thing that I noticed is that the default setting causes a photo to print in 8 to 9 minutes. If you go into the Print Settings and uncheck the "Enhance Fine Details" Checkbox, the PictureMate will produce a fantastic, beautiful, and durable print in about 2 to 3 minutes, which is acceptable.

    In response to another reviewer about selecting prints, I agree that it is not easy to select prints when printing from card, I either remember the number or you can use most cameras to mark images for printing in camera. I too print from computer and this is definitely the way to go.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Lab Quality Prints At Home
    I am a semi-pro photographer and was looking for an easy way to get proof images and I found it with the Epson Picturemate. The prints cost roughly the same as from my local lab, about 29 cents each, and the quality is sharper and better. You can connect it directly to your computer or print straight from a variety of media cards. The only down side is there is no way to monitor and pick which image you want off the card without first printing a contact sheet.
    Since I print from my computer this is really not a problem. The printer is small and portable. Epson claims the prints will last 100 years or more. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome paper
    The Canon glossy paper is great! I've printed out over 600 4x6 pictures on my Canon i960 printer and the pictures are much better than taking them to any photo lab. I have used nothing but the Canon glossy photo paper and certainly have been quite pleased with the paper not to mention flawless printing on the i960. I certainly recommend the paper and the printer and the price on amazom for the paper is better then any store I've been to.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best paper for your Canon Printer!
    Do not pass up this photo paper. If you own a canon printer. this is the best paper for it. The quality of the paper is better than most professional paper such as kodak or fuji.

    What really makes the difference in your printed photos is the quality of the paper. I own the Canon IP4000 printer and the photos are better than getting them developed at the lab. This paper is quite thick whcih makes the photos you print very professional. Combine editing software like Microsoft PictureIt! and you have a winning combination!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost like the Photo Paper Pro
    I have used both this photo paper and the photo paper pro, and i really cant tell a difference. I am using a canon mp730 (great multifunction printer if you are in the market btw) and the colors come out crisp and vibrant. The only thing you might notice between this and the really high end stuff is the texture of the print. It seems that this paper is ever-so slightly rougher than the really good stuff. If you are just making regular prints to share with family, I would get this stuff...if you are using it for professional shots or something that you would like to keep for a long time, i would get the higher end stuff.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant color
    I did a few test prints with this paper on my Canon i960 phoyo printer with some pics of the kids and they looked great. Then I printed a close-up of a stunning mum flower that I shot on slide film and had scanned onto CD. I could not believe the brilliant color, saturation and detail in the print!!! It's mind-blowing. I might take the slide to a local printer to see what kind of print they do by comparison, but I give some major kudos for both the printer and this paper. Wowee. I am going to blow through a lot of paper this way!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stellar Photos
    This paper is absolutely amazing with my Canon printer!I was surprised to find that the color was accurate, the prints very clear, and the paper was dry once it came out of my printer.I even "test smudged" the paper and there was not one run, smudge, or ink left on my fingers (unlike my first attempt on the crappy generic paper)I'm definitely reordering this stuff for my photo printing needs :) ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars It works great for copying protected VHS tapes
    Let me state up front. All I want to do is make a single copy of purchased VHS tapes for my own use. I am not interested in pirating movies or anything else.

    I recently purchased a Panasonic DMRE 85 DVD recorder from Amazon. I love it. I have made many DVDs of videos that I shot myself.I then started looking at my vast, purchased, VHS collection but when I tried to copy one of the tapes, the DVD player reports that it cannot copy copyright protected material. It automatically detects the Macrovision and simply will not copy it.

    A friend purchased one of these nifty GO DVD devices and I borrowed it to see if it would work.After putting the GO DVD in between the DVD recorder and the VHS machine, the recorder made a perfect copy of the same tape. No discernable degradation in quality at all.

    Of course I immediately put in my order to Amazon for one of these beauties.$70 is a small price to pay compared with replacing my VHS collection with purchased DVDs.Some of my tapes have never been released on DVD so this is really my only option!

    5-0 out of 5 stars It Works!
    I received this nifty little device this afternoon, and by evening I had made a backup copy of one copy-protected VHS tape ("The Big House" from 1930) to a DVD-R disc. The device seems to have an incredibly simplistic (some would say efficient) design.There aren't a lot of options - just 3 switches, one that scrolls through input selection, one that scrolls through mode selection (the black-and-white mode worked perfectly for the old movie), and one that switches output from NTSC to PAL (I didn't test that one).They didn't spend anything on frills - you could probably reverse engineer this and make what you need from radio-shack parts for a few dollars, but you'd still have to get it first to do that.They didn't even include extra cables - just one - but you probably have another one from your VCR or DVD player.It wouldn't have cost them much, considering mass production and the selling price, to add audio inputs & outputs so you can keep your cables together; but that might defeat the purpose and degrade the audio signal.And there's no power switch, you just leave it on or pull the plug.But it does the job!

    You can use GoDVD to darken, lighten, correct bad synch, and make fair use copies of copy protected material. Just connect the audio cables OUT from the playing device to the IN of the recording device like you normally would. The video cable OUT from the playing device goes IN the GoDVD. Then you run a video cable (supplied) from the OUT on the GoDVD to the IN of the recording device. The A/C adaptor is also supplied.

    Product works as stated :-).

    2-0 out of 5 stars The Good & The Ugly
    The good: it does successfully strip Macrovision & allow you to make legal fair use backup copies of tapes you own.

    The ugly: Significant picture degradation compared to a straight pass through, & the "enhancement" modes are 3 presets that either : 1. Lighten, 2. darken, or 3. lighten & strip color. Not of much use. If I had been aware of the poor picture quality of this unit, I wouldn't have purchased it. I was hoping to back up a large VHS collection & in some cases improve it by picture enhancement.

    For VHS, I suggest first checking to see if each tape has Macrovision (Not all commercial VHS tapes do) & only using this unit if needed.

    For making legal fair use backup copies of your dvd's I suggest an inexpensive Pioneer 108 or 109 pc burner & widely available legal freeware programs which will give you a superior disc in every manner. The Pioneers are the best burner of any type I've used.

    The only caveat to the above is I tested the unit with both inexpensive & non-video cables (I tried all the following: a generic s-vid, a generic rca, a $50 rca terminated audio cable & a $200 Simply Physics rca terminated digital audio coax cable which gave the worst results of the bunch!); expensive dedicated video cables might improve the picture, but

    a. this is only an $80 unit & expensive cables seem a bit excessive

    &

    b. the $50 audio cable noted above does great going straight into my pioneer dvr-225s on non-Macrovision videos.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The perfect solution!
    After trying every possible PC software digital video converter (they were all bad to horrible) to make fair use copies of my precious OOP VHS & Beta movies to DVD, I finally found the Sima CT-2 -- thanks to Google and online discussion groups!It works perfectly to defeat my Panasonic DVR's super-sensitive recording nix on transferring my own videotape movies.And for a few tapes that are on the bright side, the darkness setting makes them crisp and more viewable than the original.Is it worth $100+?For me, absolutely -- even though I found it for under $70 using online price searches.

    If you want to preserve your precious videotape movies and have a DVR that can burn DVDs, this is the perfect solution for you! ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Manufacturers have made it increasingly easy to connect a host of FireWire and USB devices to your computer, but often at the expense of the microphone port and other jacks. Enter the Griffin iMic audio adapter, an affordable USB device that lets users connect microphones, speakers, cassette decks, and virtually any other audio source to their Macs and PCs for recording or playback. Among its many uses are recording voices or instruments for home movies, turning your laptop into a DJ studio, or converting your LPs and cassettes into MP3s or CDs. The iMic includes two 1/8-inch mini-jack ports (one mic/line-level input and one speaker output), along with an RCA-to-miniplug adapter for connecting audio components such as phonographs. Thanks to a small toggle switch on the unit, the microphone input can handle both mic-level recording and line-level signals. In addition, the iMic works with most recording software, and even comes with a CD-ROM loaded with Final Vinyl for Macintosh (for recording LPs), along with trial versions of several other applications.

    Design and Setup
    The iMic looks like a compact version of the sleek power adapters that come with iBooks. Its major shortcoming from a design standpoint is the length of its cable, which measures a mere foot-and-a-half long. Users who plug the device into their computers' rear USB ports had better hope that their other peripherals have far longer cables; otherwise, they'll be huddling close to their hard drives while recording. Installation was effortless, however--simply plug the iMic into a USB port and you're ready to go. The iMic is both Mac and PC compatible, though owners of pre-OS X and pre-Windows XP operating systems may not be able to enjoy its full array of features. For instance, the iMic only acts as a recording device for Windows 98 SE and 2000 systems, and is unable to output music. Some users have also reported the need to update their firmware in order for the iMic to work properly.

    The iMic comes with a quick start manual, but it's fairly minimal, which could make it a bit confusing to operate for people who don't have recording experience. Fortunately, Griffin's web site (www.griffintechnology.com) spells out the instructions in relatively good detail. Mac users should note that they'll need to fiddle with the Speech and Sound Preference panels and enable the "iMic USB audio system" before use, while PC users will need to select the iMic under the Sounds and Audio Devices control panel.

    Features and Performance
    We tested the iMic in two different applications--converting a cassette to MP3 and recording a voice with an external three-pin microphone using Griffin's GarageBand microphone cable. The cassette conversion went smoothly. After connecting the tape deck through the RCA-to-miniplug adapter and flipping the toggle switch to the line-level setting, we used the Final Vinyl software to convert the files to WAV format. Once the files were recorded, it was simple to import them to iTunes and convert them to MP3 or AAC files. Given the symbiotic relationship between iTunes and the iPod, it was also a snap to sync the files for portable play. The audio quality was quite good for a low-priced sound card--the iMic offers 24-bit audio processing, though most computers support a maximum of 16-bit sampling at this juncture--and thus was restricted more by the quality of the initial cassette than the iMic itself. However, the increased capacity bodes well for future upgrades.

    The device also recorded the microphone audio quite easily, this time into the GarageBand application for the Mac. The recording quality in this application was also good--no background noise or static. As with the cassette example, the quality will likely depend more on the source equipment and software than on the iMic. When we were finished, it was simple to transfer the recording to other multimedia applications, such as iMovie. One source of confusion, however, was the toggle switch, which we had to move to the microphone setting (which includes a preamp) for proper operation. The problem is that the toggle switch is counter-intuitively labeled--the microphone setting is under the speaker icon rather than microphone icon--so it's easy to set it incorrectly and wonder why the input isn't working.

    On the whole, though, the iMic is a very good value for the price, and is a great addition for Mac users who miss the once-standard microphone ports. Serious musicians and other high-end users should probably invest in professional equipment, but the rest of us will have a ball. --Rivers Janssen

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works Great With My Mac Mini
    I bought a Mac mini a couple months ago to archive my tapes & photos (among other things). To convert my tapes to CD/MP3 I had to have some sort of USB or Firewire input device. Most pro Audio interfaces are over $100 and I figured what the heck, I'll try the iMic and even if it is a dog, I'll only be out $30 or so. Well, this little device provides great simultaneous 2 way stereo sound (i.e. recording/monitoring simultaneously) and I love it. The A to D converters on this thing are very good and I am totally pleased with the quality of the audio. My only gripe is that the line level/mic switch on the iMic seems to be labeled backwards as line level is with the switch towards the Mic icon. Griffin, why this one little flaw???

    I plan to do some guitar/vocals thru the iMic via my Behringer mixer. But that is in the future. For $30 you can't go wrong. If I had paid $100 I would be saying the same thing. The only problem I have had recording is the 4200 RPM Mac Mini hard drive is apparently too slow (even with iMic plugged directly into computer and with audio buffers at various settings) to keep up with realtime recording and this causes severe audio stuttering.

    The solution was to buy an external Firewire hard drive. Recording to an external firewire drive has totally solved my audio problems and so far I have converted about 15 audio/voice cassettes to CD and into my iTunes library as MP3s. All flawless and clean.I listen to my old cassettes on my iPod shuffle now. I use Bias Peak LE and Bias Soundsoap to record/clean up the audio and let me just say that my little audio rig with the iMic as the front end....is AWESOME!!! You can't go wrong with this little jewel. I am one satisfied customer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very good for specific uses; not for others.
    First, let's describe what this is: it's a sound card. That means it offers analogue to digital and digital to analogue conversion on the device itself, and is capable of shuffling that data over a USB connection to your computer. It is _not_ a cable adaptor, which confused one previous reviewer; it is _not_ a "live" device - you can't use it as part of a studio monitor, which confused another. It is similarly _not_ a format converter. However, it _is_ useful for bringing in analogue sound to your Macintosh (or, in theory, PC).

    The hardware itself is pretty impressive for the price, when dealing with line-level input. Drum captures are surprisingly crisp; piano capture is surprisingly lush; vocals are strong. It is _not_ professional equipment, but it's also not $300; the value for money is quite high. The input fidelity is significantly better than my Powerbook's onboard A/D converter, and the other, more expensive, card I have in our PC tower system.

    On the downside, its analogue grounding and shielding is - perhaps unsurprisingly, given that it's a USB device - weak. In an RF-noisy area, you will probably pick up some noise that you won't hear on your stereo. I suspect this is where some complaints about hum have come from. I was able to create this problem at home, by playing with it. Insuring best possible ground connections on all other cabling, and adding some local shielding, can solve this problem if you live in an RF-noisy area. Similarly, turning off buzz-creating noise sources nearby - such as small motors, dimmer-switch controlled lighting, and so on - will help. This is not a disqualifying issue, but is one that should be taken into consideration.

    On the other hand, the phono level pre-preamplification is simply poor - noisy and just kind of unpleasant - and the RIAA equalisation preset is iffy. If you want to use this device with a turntable, use your own first stage amplification to get it up to line level. (If you aren't in a band or an audiophile, what that means is: plug it into your stereo's "tape out" sockets instead of connecting your turntable directly to it.) Given that microphone input is similar, you'll probably want to use a powered microphone, or route your passive microphone through other equipment, before digitising.

    As for the software: "Final vinyl" is mostly disappointing. As a data-capturing utility, it's adequate; the ability to set basic equalisation at capture time is useful and works well. It can be successfully used to extract individual tracks from a longer capture.

    But as an editor, it is woefully inadequate. Even the simple track-creating task it was built for is laden with unpleasant surprises. Clearly, they did not throw significant testing resources at the software; it suffers badly from the "if you don't use it the exactly same way we use it, random things happen" problem often seen in products from smaller software houses.

    _Many_ seemingly-reasonable actions put it into an unrecoverably discombobulated state. For example, trying to add a cue marker to the left of an existing cue marker confuses it irredeemably; you will probably end up with random cue mark placing, and when you try to start deleting cues, end up with a negative number of tracks. It is also easy to reorder random segments of sound in such a way that it does not, in fact, appear in the editor, but does appear in playback; I haven't found the pattern to that problem yet, but it is recurring and may involve selecting ranges for post-capture eq adjustment.

    Most of these problems require you to revert to original capture data and flush the undo buffer, which means lost work. However, if you can figure out how _they_ use it, I suspect it works pretty well; but I shouldn't have to work constantly to figure out whether I'm going to trash all my work by moving a cue marker the wrong way, or whether trying to bring down levels at one point in a sample is going to reorder or copy other parts of the sample at random.

    In summary: very good value for dollar hardware at line input level; less so for direct turntable input; and if you're thinking about buying it mostly for the software, get something else. I wanted it for the hardware, and as such, I'm pleased.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Suitable for most purposes
    I was a mac user from years back, and was surprised when I found out my new Mac mini didn't have an sudio in...I was planning on turning some casette tapes into MP3 files.

    While it was usable for this purpose, it has a small noticable mid-range hum.This was not from my casette deck, as the hum is consistent no matter what kind of input I use, from casette to a small powered microphone from Radio Shack.It might be suitable for some podcasting, audio blogging, etc., it would NOT be usable for audio input into something like Garage Band... there are higher end products for that.

    5-0 out of 5 stars a fantastic little solution for a mac
    I really am thrilled with my purchase.I have a older mac.It is 600 mhz g4 and I am digitizing a bunch of old records and tapes with the imic using final vinyl and itunes and it really is perfect.The only issue that I had was hooking my turntable up to the imic directly.I was grounding it with an old receiver that I had then running the signal directly from the turn table to the imic and it was aweful.Tons of static etc.Then Ihad the turntable go through my receiver and out to the imic and it is perfect.I quickly learned the ins and outs of using final vinyl and it is just great.I suppose there are a few pointers that are left out of the documentation that I figured out by trial and error but that's alright.Also I suppose the usb cord is too short and I will be purchasing a usb extension.Other than that I am thrilled with this little device and the price is perfect.

    2-0 out of 5 stars $40 for what?!
    I bought this today at the local computer store for $40. I have an iBook and I wanted to record myself playing bass, guitar, mandolin, whathaveyou and apple doesn't put audio-in ports on their computers anymore. I'm an audio nut. iMic fell short of every expectation I had.

    - They advertise as being affordable. Since when was $40 cheap? I don't get paid much and I try to get the most bang for my buck. iMic was like spending $40 on snakes and sparklers for the 4th of July.
    - I can live with the white noise, which is noticable. I like my audio to be pristine, but the audio from the iMic is crap. $40 of simple wiring should provide perfect audio quality. There's constantly white noise fuzzing away whenever it's plugged in. But it's a mellow white noise and it's tolerable. Still, I could have spent the day with some wire, clippers, and a slodering iron and came out with the same results for cheaper.
    - The delay! there is a delay between the audio going into the imic an and the audio coming out the speakers. That's not too bad if you're just making mp3s of old vinyls or something, but if you want to record yourself playing guitar it couldn't be any worse. You play a note and you don't hear it for at least a quarter of a second after you play it. That is completely unacceptable.
    - it doesn't work with the software it came with. When I tried to use it to record myself playing Audacity, the program that came with it, wouldn't record (or hear) the right channel when I had the recorder set to stereo. When I set it to mono it sounded like it was under heavy distortion. I couldn't troubleshoot this though I tried for over an hour.

    another thing that bothered me about the iMic was the packaging. I would have taken it back if it wasn't packed so you had to use the jaws of life to get it out of the plastic, thus rendering it unreturnable.

    I would strongly recommend looking for another device. Don't buy an iMic. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Most economical laser toner for small business home office.
    I Have been using Brother laser printers which use this cartridge for about 7 years. GREAT PRODUCT. In fact the Brother multi function machine I currently use is a (now discontinued) MFC 9600. It has now been replaced with the nearly identical MFC 9700. I have had it for some 5 years with regular use and it works flawlesly. I use about 3 or 4 TN460 cartridges per year. Brother seems to be about the only manufacturer which provides a decent economical value for laser toner. Yes their printers/multi function machines cost a little more initially, but, do the long term math. You pay dearly in toner costs down the road with other better known or more highly publisized brands. I am continually surprised when I inquire at any office supply store about the cost per print or cost of operation of any given laser printer. The sales people are baffled, and never seem to know. This to me is THE question to ask. And, with the cost a some excellent full featured heavy duty Brother multifunction machines (fax scanner laser printer) very close to $300, it really does not make any sense to buy anything else if you are a small business home office with fairly regular laser/fax usage. Yes you might get a laser printer for $100 less. But after a few cartridges, you will wish you had a Brother using this economical cartridge.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good product, great price
    I've come back time and again to Amazon.com for this toner cartridge. Their price has been the lowest I could find anywhere time after time. You can feel confident if you purchase it here, you're getting very close to the rock-bottom price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars very nice
    No problems with these, and great price at amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars high yield -
    The cartridge is easy to install and lasts a long time... haven't had it botch any print run in two years of operation, in fact, the brother printer that uses it, just hummmms along tackling any job my small business needs... a winner! and the price at amazon is a winner, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars It's Ink.
    It's ink. It's great. What more can I say?
    Actually, Brother is pretty good about estimating how many pages will print before the ink runs out. This cartridge is a much better value than the TN430 as you get twice the output for maybe a 30% increase in cost.

    Enjoy your laser printer! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Still better off with separate units, but a nice toy
    The Canon MF8170c is the very first AIO (All-In-One) fax-scan-copy-printer to feature color laser printing at its pricepoint and without the 500 lb bulk of a standalone copier/printer.While you can probably both save money and increase quality and speed with separate units doing the same task, after buying my first AIO HP OfficeJet G85 several years ago I was hooked and promised myself never to go back to the copy-by-scan-and-print method.The color print speed, noise, and lack of certain features are worth knocking a star off, but if you can afford it and don't need certain higher-end features its well worth it for home office use.

    The MF8170c is a heavy (ships at 106 lbs - 2-day shipping on this would pay for an Amazon Prime membership!), big (25" x 20" x 20"), relatively complicated looking unit but is a relative pussycat to get going by USB - just install drivers from the CD.Ethernet connections weren't as easy; it and my Netgear WGR614 router didn't like each other at first, but once I figured the problem was the printer didn't have an IP address, the installation software let me solve that problem and I was off and running.

    B&W print quality is in general quite crisp, color print quality very good and both well above that of the HP 4650n I used at my prior job.This is not a photo printer, however; I found using both copy and glossy paper my G85 substantially outperformed it even when the MF8170c was set in photo mode.Fax and copy functionality and quality were ok, although it feels like my old G85 had more features.Where this lacks is in scanning.Scan quality is actually pretty good, but you can't scan through the network and have to have a USB connection (and drivers).Annoying.

    Where I knock a star off (and would probably knock a second off if it weren't a unique item) is three fold.First, no power switch means even in energy saver mode this has fans going; it's not hugely loud (compared to my late lamented airplane-engine-sounding 15-year-old Epson ActionLaser II) but it's annoying and takes forever to turn off and warm up.Second, for a 2005 printer color prints like its 2000 at a rated 4 ppm after a 1 minute warmup.This isn't surprising given Canon quietly skimped on RAM.The printer has only a measly 24MB, a fact convieniently omitted from the available technical specifications and one I only found out about by looking around on the web browser based internal monitor.Finally, I really don't like the fact that I can't buy a duplex (dual-sided) printing collator, although the design makes me hope there should be some accessories coming out shortly.

    If you have more than 2-3 people who need to do routine color printing or scanning this isn't your machine.I'd pick up one of the networked color laser Lexmarks and a good monochrome AIO unit instead.However, for home office use this is state of the art.I like its large bulk in the corner of my home office even with its limitations.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Review of Canon's New MF8170c All in One Copier
    This unit is so new, it is hard to find in any stores, much less set up as a demo. I bought sight unseen based on features and Canon's good name. I was not disappointed.

    Assembly took about one hour, including installing 5 toner cartridges (1 large black and 4 color toners). Software set up went perfectly. The manual and instruction cards were very well written.

    The first color copy on plain paper looked really good. Better than what my Epson 2200 color inkjet would produce. I had some old glossy laser paper and then printed on that. Not a big improvement over plain. Images are a bit grainy and some banding in large color areas. I then printed a digital photo off my computer. Not a vast improvement over the copy function image. Same results where plain paper looks great (for a plain paper copy) and the glossy image was not near as good as decent inkjet can produce. I have not scanned or faxed, yet with this machine.

    Final thoughts: the unit takes a long time to make the first color copy, probably a full 60 seconds. The unit has NO OFF switch, just an energy saver button. Hence, the unit is always on. The unit will sit for hours after copying making fan noises. Don't sleep in the same room as this unit. Much later, it goes into true sleep mode and stays quiet. Even making black and white copies takes a considerable amount of time for the first copy. Images in B&W rival those of my HP Laserjet 4000--a machine with reportedly better resolution. Don't expect photo quality from this laser copier. You will need a good inkjet for that. But for business or home letters with small graphics or small photos in a newsletter, this unit does an amazing job. I will sell my HP 4000 but keep my Epson ink jet. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Almost there
    Bottom line is, most of the glitches have been worked out. Works great with mymac G4 and a co-worker uses Windows and it works for him as well. This is great for AM talk radio. The only negative is that Griffin hasn't come out with an external antenna that plugs right into the 1/8 jack on the side of the unit. It took me a few minutes to make one but obviously most consumers don't know what kind of wire and/or how to solder the conections to make their own antenna. I didn't have to have an external antenna since I live in the middle of the city but it did help a bit to make the signal that much cleaner. 5 stars for the unit and the software but 1 star for Griffin not coming out with a antenna that you can buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Happy with my Radio Shark
    I just got my RadioShark four days ago.I had read the reviews and had a bit of concern about the software and the reception.I am running XP on and am in Seattle with good radio signal strength.During the past four days I have used the scheduling and playback features several times.It worked flawlessly.I am very happy with the purchase.I have found that on the lowest quality WMA settings, an hour of radio time takes about 28 megs.I hope you have as much success.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Radio Reception
    As with other people's reviews, this is a great idea.Unfortunately I can't use a great idea if it can't pick up the radio station I listen to.All other radios in the house can, and Griffin's advice of plugging in headphones to act as an improved antenna only helped slightly.Also had a few minor software problems.All in all, disappointing and will be returned to Amazon.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Record radio shows for your iPod
    I got this as a gift for my boyfriend.I was concerned at first after reading other reviews about the antennae reception, and also compatibility with the PC.If you raise the RadioShark so it's elevated and away from other wires or the monitor, the reception is as good as any radio.The AM and FM stations came in crystal clear.Better than the stereo for AM.The RadioShark records in WAV format on the PC, and there's no preferences to import it into iTunes.But if you go into iTunes and add the WAV file from the menu, it will synch your recording into iTunes so you can copy it to your iPod.This is a nifty device for radiophiles, it's like Tivo for the radio.They also have a feature where you can have a buffer in recording live radio, so you can pause or rewind the program while you're listening to it's broadcast!Pretty neat!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reception isn't a problem
    I was concerned about reception because I have a small clock radio next to my desk, and its reception isn't great. It's okay when I'm sitting at my desk, but when I move around the room, it's spotty. After reading the reviews, I took the RadioShark out of my cart and tried out Audio Hijack and checked out Podcasts. I couldn't get Audio Hijack to work, and read user reviews on several lists complaining of usability problems. So I gave up on those and decided to give RadioShark a try. I haven't had any reception problems with the RadioShark: regardless of where I am in the room, the reception on the RadioShark is fine. So, while I haven't compared it with a decent radio, it's at least better than a cheap, digital clock radio. ... Read more

    And I got free shipping with I believe 'Super Saver' by Amazon.

    I have had my ML-1210 printer for over a year now. I am an insurance appraiser/investigator and print over 4000 pages a month. The printer has performed flawlessly. This was the best investment of $$$$$ I could have made. The toner/drum is (with a little work)refillable with Okidata refill cartridges. I replace the cartridge at about 20,000 pages....Still the price for the drum here at Amazon is $$$$ less than elsewhere. I am looking to upgrade to the ML-1710 soon but will hate to part with this one.....

    5-0 out of 5 stars Works as designed
    I have a Samsung ML-1430 (great little printer) and this toner cartridge was easy to install and it works as expected.Samsung isn't a big name in laser printers, so replacement cartridges aren't as readily available in local stores as it is for HP and some of the more established brands so, once again, it's Amazon to the rescue.

    If you have a Bluetooth phone, and you want deluxe features, look no further than the HS-11W. This headset frees you up by allowing you to handle calls directly from your headset. Plus, with its unique ear clip, it's comfortable enough to wear all day on either ear. And because it has a 30-foot range, you can leave your phone in your briefcase, purse, or across the room.

    The HS-11W is easy to pair with any phone that supports the Bluetooth 1.1 specification (including the Nokia 3600, 3620, 3650, 3660, 6230, 6310i, 6600, 6620, 6651, 6820, 7610 phones, and the N-Gage and N-Gage QD game decks). You can use its Send/End button to make and disconnect calls, or use the automatic redial function for calls that don't go through. You can even control call volume directly from the headset. The HS-11W boasts up to six hours of talk time on a single charge and you'll get up to 160 hours of standby time. The headset's rechargeable lithium-ion battery charges in just three hours with the included charger.

    Of course, no headset is any good if it isn't comfortable. The HS-11W has you covered there, too. A contoured ear-hook gives the headset a secure behind-the-ear fit on either ear. And with a weight of just .74 ounces, you'll forget you're even wearing it.

    This headset has great battery life, dedicated volume and power buttons and another button that answers and hangs up calls and activates voice dial.It has great sound quality and the microphone is clear.Also, it looks cool.It doesn't have any nerdy, annoying flashing lights.It's just slick.Judged by its features, it deserves 5 stars.I give it 3 because I can barely wear it for an hour.I wear an earpiece headset at work, sometimes all day long, without any problem.This one squeezes down so hard that it actually gets painful!I thought I would get used to it, but I've had it for 3 months now and no luck.I now wear it hanging halfway off my ear so that it can't clamp down so hard. I applaud Nokia for trying something different, but it's no good.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very slick headset
    A co-woker has this headset. I got to use it with my Nokia phone today. It looks like something out of star trek but once it's on your ear you don't even notice it is there. It's super-lightweight and very sturdy. We looked funny shaking our heads trying to make it fall off but this thing stays put. Very good voice quality and nice solid design. 5 stars to Nokia for making a unique, well built headset! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Good Product
    While the general axiom is that HP sells discounted printers and jacks up the price on the resulting cartridges.

    This is not the case here, it seems; The cartridges are very cheap and 1 lasts a long time.

    This is an important quality for a chem major who prints LOTS of lab reports but doesn't want to have to go to the store for ink constantly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Reliable
    This makes a nice, clean print and is reasonably priced. I've been able to print around 120 or so pages from each cartridge, so I'm happy.

    Product delivered promptly and as advertised.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great ink!
    I bought a cute little mobile Hp Deskjet 450cbi for college, which has proved to be tiny but reliable, and it's definitely worth the money.While three months of use of our Epson printer at home drains the cartridge, three months of printing out two to three several-page papers every week using my HP 450cbi leaves the cartridge drained only to 40%. Great moneysaver for a poor college student like me!

    4-0 out of 5 stars economical but short service life
    I was only able to get three months out of my HP 56 cartridge.(my old printer was able to go six months but had larger cartridges). ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great Cartridge At A Great Price
    I use this cartridge in an HP DeskJet 5150 printer. The printer always yields crisp, well defined color prints. Unlike some people I think that the cartridge lasts a reasonable amount of time, although I don't print photos very often, which can definitely use ink at a voracious pace.

    My biggest criticism of HP cartridges in general is the price, but the price here at Amazon is the best I have found, and I think the Amazon price point, particularly combined with free shipping and no tax makes this cartridge reasonably priced. Having said all that, there is one area where the product could be improved, which is the pronounced tendency of the ink to smear when wet. I realize that this is a not-unusual trait of inkjet printers, but I am more acutely aware of the problem with this printer and ink combination than with most other inkjet printers I have used.

    Overall the HP 57 is a good value for the money, particularly if you shop around for good deals.

    2-0 out of 5 stars runs out way to fast
    I opribnt maybe 40 pictures and it runs out.At twenty six bucaroonies.That's a lot of money/ picture.I found out Costco will print pictures while you wait for Nineteen pennies a fraction of the copst.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
    I just bought a new HP PSC 1210 All-in-one, and printed 4x6 photos on the free sample premium plus glossy photo paper, after installing the HP 57 tri color cartridge. The result? Astonishing!! There's no way anyone can tell that the photograph is a computer printout and not developed on kodak paper.

    True, developing 4x6 can be as low as a quarter per print at some places, making this scheme uneconomical, but I'd highly recommend this for printing larger photos. (5x7, 8x10).

    3-0 out of 5 stars The pictures are great, the ink cost is high
    I use HP 57 and HP 58 cartridges for 6-ink photo printing on my HP PSC 2210 multifunction machine.The photos look great on HP premium photo paper, just like the ones from my local 1-hour photo center.However, after 20 pages (about 60 4*6 photos), the HP 58 cartridge is gone, and there is only about 1/4 left on the HP 57 cartridge. This is killing me.I will just use the local photo lab from now on :-(

    3-0 out of 5 stars poor information
    HP does not offer full information on number of color prints:
    Impossible to have an approximation of ink costs. Why so vague?

    Ex: 391 prints??? What size?
    ex: 15% Coverage??? Photos or text what size paper, 4x6, 8 1/2 x 11?
    Any variation of the above will make a great change in ink costs.

    Give us the approximate cost for any average 4x6 color photo.
    Give us the approximate cost of an average full page text with some color. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    If you have a Bluetooth phone, you owe it to yourself to get a comfortable, easy-to-use headset from Nokia. The HDW-3 frees you up by allowing you to handle calls directly from your headset. Plus, it's comfortable enough to wear all day. Because it has a 30-foot range, you can leave your phone in your briefcase, purse, or across the room.

    The HDW-3 is easy to pair with any phone that supports the Bluetooth 1.1 specification (including the Nokia 3600, 3620, 3650, 3660, 6230, 6310i, 6600, 6620, 6651, 6820, 7610 phones, and the N-Gage and N-Gage QD game decks). You can use its Send/End button to make and disconnect calls, or use the automatic redial function for calls that don't go through. You can even control call volume directly from the headset. The HDW-3 boasts up to five hours of talk time on a single charge and you'll get up to 120 hours of standby time. The headset's rechargeable battery charges in just two hours with a standard Nokia phone charger (not included).

    Of course, no headset is any good if it isn't comfortable. The HDW-3 has you covered there, too. A contoured ear-hook gives the headset a secure behind-the-ear fit on either ear. With a weight of just .9 ounces, you'll forget you're even wearing it.

    What's in the Box
    HDW-3 wireless headset, rechargeable Ni-MH battery, 2 black ear loops, Bluetooth pass-code card, user's manual. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Size *DOES* matter!
    I've owned this for about 3wks now and this is what I like about it:

    -VERY small and light weight!
    -mic is very sensitive and clear
    -earpiece sound quality is almost the same as hearing it from the headset
    -battery life is very close to what's advertised
    -it looks really cool!

    What I don't like about it:
    -volume buttons are too small and hard to get at

    I used to own the Jabra BT headset and I'm glad I switched.The Nokia has a dedicated on/off switch versus the Jabra's "press and hold this button for 5sec to turn on or off" switch.Belive me, it saves a wealth of convenience. ... Read more
