Evaluation

The whole impression is "the F500E is well organized to be compatible with the tastes of the target demographic." The size of the toggle fits nicely in a woman's hand and is well thought out. However, the highlight is design for sound. The sounds that are made when turning the switch ON/OFF and operating the toggle are very soft and comfortable. These sounds make you want to keep switching it ON/OFF and operating the toggle. Sounds may be considered as insignificant overall, but this attention to detail gives us a favorable impression.
