Cathe 10lb Weighted Vest

cathe-10lb-weighted-vest

This vest is perfect for anyone who is looking for a little resistance. It is very versatile and can be used while playing sports… that’s what I use it for.

There are heavier vests out there but they’re all full bodied ones, and only good for walking or while weight lifting. The build of this vest is similar to those of ankle and wrist weights but it goes on your back so you can’t accidentally over extend any of your extremities.

Its a little over priced ($30) but works great. Also, Wal-Mart now carries the new 12lb Gold’s GYM marketed version ($35), so if you are looking for a little more weight, check their shelves because its not sold online.

Rating: 4.5/5, I deducted .5 off the rating for it’s high price.

Super Talent 4GB Flash Drive

About a week ago I decided that my 256mb flash drive wasn’t cutting it anymore. I got myself a Super Talent 4GB for $18 off of supermediastore.com.

The Drive was as promised and the reviews were fairly accurate. But…

1) the darn thing is too small, it really doesn’t hit you that it is too small and hard to keep track of until after you get it in your hands
2) the shiny outer sleeve fits rather loosely so the plastic gets exposed frequently straight out of the box
3) the plastic casing should actually be metal because its obvious it can be broke if handled wrong or from a serious drop to a hard surface
4) it’s write speed is super, super slow; this is especially true for folders with many small files

I’d have to say my biggest complaint is the write speed on it. It takes me 1-2 hours to write about a 1GB of data onto it. Other than that, I partially alleviated all the minor design problems with a paper clip and some shrink tubing.

Review Thoughts: Rating (3/5), that means don’t buy it. Super Talent offers a more stable looking metal drive… but the speeds are the same… 😡
