Dearest Mother, I am writing you during this trying time to inform you the continued famine of the “meh face pop sockets” still haven’t arrived. The troops are growing weary and the supplies of hope are running low. We have found dead mehtizens strung across the battlefield as papier-mâché dolls. We are not sure where they come from but the enemy is known simply by the way they continue to string us along with hope. One of the more recent incidents that occurred was the enemy chanting at us “We don’t know what to sell! What should we sell?” We scoffed at their remarks as blasphemous witchery because they know what we crave and what we desire.
Mother, the care packages you sent have yet to arrive. Our faces are becoming the meh faces to which we desire. I do not know how long we can continue the march towards the Meh-tropolis of our dreams. All I know is that we will continue our journey. At the end of the day our platoon is known for being meh. Other soldiers and companies continue to laugh at our abysmal results, or lack thereof. This does not discourage the faithful few. We know our efforts are not in vain.
@reclaimercube@Thumperchick MMMA Make Meh Mediocre Again This is a national Crisis and we the mehtizans are declaring a national emergency, soldiers are ill equipped for the rigors of modern warfare and lack the essential popsockets for holding devices as they navigate this hostile terrain. You must hold true to the notions that made Meh Mediocre. Provide for you mehtizans.
@lljk I was curious what that one sold for, since it’s been a few months. Perhaps Meh could just add the price to the url’s linked photo for easy reference?
Finding that answer instead took me deep into the forums for that day. ($274, BTW) In the process though, I was reminded of the prior campaign to request that meh sell t-shirts again. We’re now inundated with t-shirts!
So fair warning: If/when meh decides to sell pop sockets on a weekly basis, I’m inclined to launch a GoFundMe campaign to bury the @reclaimercube residence with them.
I really want to pull the trigger on one of these. Would it be worth it to pay $30 extra for the new one at Costco like someone said above? Or should I trust an open box? I don’t have a Costco Membership.
@nolrak@robson My point being, why buy something that everyone has returned (read the reviews), that MEH will obviuosly not check before sending, and then have to deal with MEH for a replacement which they won’t have anyway?
Does anyone know how this speaker would compare to/against the Dr Dre Beatbox bluetooth speaker? I have been looking for awhile for anything in the $100 range that compares. So far nothing has been the slightest challenge to that damn Beatbox. I know the Beatbox is not rechargeable and don’t care about that point. I want something that pounds like it. Thanks
yeah, I sort of want some kind of bluetooth speaker to use as a remote speaker for my PC in the house.
this may be overkill.
plus it says “Monster” on it.
not sure I could overcome the shame, even if I did only pay 17.25% of their ridiculous retail price.
Its too bad bluetooth won’t let you connect to an unlimited number of speakers. If it would let me connect to say…15, which is the approximate number that I’ve been “gifted”, I could have the famous “wall of sound”.
Monster = NO WAY!!!
I won’t deal with any of their over-inflated pricey crap.
“Wanna buy a $100 coax cable that is a copy of a $5 one but says Monster?”
And these are the ppl who will sue at the drop of a hat—they sued “Monster Mini-Golf” for using the name “Monster”. They sued an electronics company because their coax interconnect had a similar look, but different name.
Everyone: No way! Monster way overprices their stuff!
Meh: But this is actually a very low price for the level of quality they offer, so the cost/value proposition is actually quite good.
Everyone: MONSTER IS THE DEVIL! BURN IT!
@grovberg I mean you call a spade a spade. When the company purposefully creates lawsuits to prevent anyone else from using Monster in their name (besides Monster energy, they can’t afford to fight coke) I won’t support them.
I hate bluetooth speakers. They never should have been invented. They allow annoyance like this to happen. Enjoy (unless you commute on the NYC subway, and then be terrified that these kids are going to cause you bodily harm)
I caved…at least the Monster logo is pretty small, so less embarrassment. I was using a JBL Clip I won at an electronics vendor show, to play recordings of tunes we are rehearsing with a couple of jazz groups I play in. Not quite the quality of the Virgin Boomtube EX I used to use. I got that a LONG time ago, maybe from Woot! But it was direct-connect only, and you had to cable up the speakers each time.
My better half has absconded my Clip to use while watching TV, so this Monster thing might be worth getting. Hopefully it does not conk out right after the Meh warranty!
@redjeep0 Thanks for the offer…but actually, my Boomtube still works fine. But it takes longer to set up when you have to hook up cables, etc. to get it going. But for the time, it was a well-designed and built unit! I am more worried about the Monster dying early based on some reviews…but it will probably hold up ok.
So I really want to buy this, but I shouldn’t. Someone, please give me a convincing argument why I should not buy this. My wife will kill me if I do, and I don’t care. I need something better to tell me “No.”
Not every unit sold on this deal necessarily has to be a returned item. This can also be how mfgrs sell off discounted inventory without violating agreements with retailers. Surprised anyone on here doesn’t realize that.
Second, $100 + tax at Costo is a 52% price increase over Meh’s price on this deal today. Doesn’t defacto make it the deal of the century, but it’s not like it’s not discounted.
Lastly, there still is a warranty even if it’s 90 days. So if you actually do get a returned one that “hisses”, you do have an out.
Now with all that said, this doesn’t scratch my itch, so I’m passing, lol. So I wrote all this for nothing!
