Build quality is very good for the price, the length is good.
CONS
none
Aluminium ends, braided cable, does not tangle easily but not too bulky. The ends are also thin, good for some phone cases Charges my Xiaomi @ 1.2A (measured) good enough for me, but a bit less than the original cable (@1.6A)

Simple to install, works like it should for call and streaming music
CONS
There is a high pitch noise present (I blame the power unit) specially noticeable on calls and annoying
It is quite easy to set up, plug in to the AUX in your car and you are good to go, connect the bluetooth and an english voice (with strong chinese accent) will tell you that it is ready to pair/connected. The sound quality and volume are good, unfortunetelly spoiled by the constant high pitch noise in the background. Speccially annoying in call since you need to crank up the volume more than when listening to music. It also emits quite a strong blue light from the control unit, in which the controls all work on Android. Be carefull with the placement, since the mic is not that good it need to be somewhat close and not down by the 12V port. The usb charger is like any other one and it goes to 450mA (measured)

Nice looking, sturdy, great packaging
CONS
Not 2.1A
I bought this because my current car usb charger only goes to 0.45A That said, plugged this in, used my best usb cable (usually charges my phone @ 1.8A in the wall charger no issues here) Used my usb amp meter thingy and... dissapointment, it was only delivering 0.45A, not even a full amp. Bummer, bought 2 units...

PROS
Good sound quality Bluetooth V4 functions Feels nice and sturdy
CONS
No English manual. The speaker speaks in chinese when it boots and connects. Quite funny actually. Recessed micro usd port, no 3.5mm jack
Quite impressed with the bass this can deliver. Much better that the tiny speakers of a couple years ago. It actually gets a nice bit of bass, better than any laptop I've ever heard for example. Bluetooth V4 allows for the battery charge to show on your phone and use the power button as a camera shutter button for example. Despite being all in chinese, the pairing was quite easy. If you want to use the micro sd port to play mp3's you'll need an app tho, available on the manufacturer site (can't find it now, it was written in the box) Recessed usb charge port is annoying as you need the supplied cable with the long connector. Can't comment on battery life yet. Overall quite happy, it sounds way better than i expected, for the price can't fault it.

It works perfectly. Easy to setup, image quality is good, really cheap. IR light is quite strong, lights up the room. Internal speaker allows for 2 way comunications, It is quite suitable for pets or baby monitoring.
CONS
Makes a very slight high pitch noise when in standby. The app for it is not flawless. Bright blue Led on the camera is very noticeable. (I covered it with tape)
I installed the YooSee app on Android. Set it up to motion detection and "arm" the camera, and quit the app, it sends an email when motion is detected. No need to run the app on the background (annoying). It sends a photo in the email, and it records a clip that can be streamed in the app with decent search and load times. The videos are stored in the micro Sd card (not included) but the format is a bit odd, not playable in the VLC as other video files. Overall I'm quite happy, just wish the app had better features, like set a time to "arm" and "disarm" the motion detection, It leaves a notification always on that annoys me. Also you might want to consider to get another usb cable, the one supplied is white and not very long
