Verified Purchase(What's this?)

1.0 out of 5 stars dry old beans, no oil sheen, August 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i got this to hold me over until i could get my usual italian roast at trader joes. this stuff is awful! bland, insipid, dry looking beans. no oil sheen. have you five star reviewers ever seen fresh roasted coffee? i am 99% happy with amazon but this almost makes me break my rule about returning less expensive stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars high quality and too bright, January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
omg is this thing bright. in a dark room it dazzles you. i leave it on at night now to try and age the leds. if it didn't have so many screws on the bottom i would open it and paint the leds with something (nail polish?). i still might. it has three brightness levels and needs another 5 below those. the design illuminates the spaces between the keys brighter than the keys, as the picture shows. and amusingly, the one button that turns on the light and adjusts it IS NOT ILLUMINATED :-0) it's in the dark upper right corner and is flush with the surface. exactly the wrong switch to use. could only be worse if it required a paper clip to actuate.

pros: so bright you can use as a flashlight. the all plastic case flexes a little but seems well made; heavier than you expect. key action fine. it's worth the money for sure, a good $40 keyboard. in a lighted room with the keyboard illumination off its very readable; black letters on white keys.

cons: too freaking bright.

all that said, its the keyboard i use. but i'm seriously thinking about one of the $100-ish logitechs.


Rechargeable Bluetooth Notebook Mouse - White
Rechargeable Bluetooth Notebook Mouse - White

4.0 out of 5 stars old batteries, October 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
received this mouse in 10-2013 with batteries that expired in 1-2010. you do the math. they don't hold a charge. amazon offered full refund but i couldn't see sticking them with postage for $2 worth of batteries. the mouse seems to work fine other than the batteries lasting about a day. so lose a star...

1.0 out of 5 stars birds do not like, August 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Contains no millet (the web page says it does) which juncos and doves like to eat. Contains a large amount of a reddish 1/8" seed which seems to be milo (sorghum). No birds here eat it. Maybe they'll get used to it. There is so much of this red seed and so little sunflower that even the chickadees won't dig for sunflower seed. They just sit on the seeder perch and look at me...

I'll update if things change. Too bad, I was hoping to avoid hauling seed from costco.

I noticed the wikipedia page for milo seed says "Some hybrids commonly grown for (animal) feed have been developed to deter birds, and therefore contain a high concentration of tannins and phenolic compounds". Ha! I wonder how careful the manufacturer is about avoiding this variety of milo?

Update: The birds figured out there are a few sunflower seeds in it so now I find piles of uneaten milo under the feeder. I'm in the woods here and I'm surprised the rodents don't clean it up at night. So into the compost it goes; I emptied the feeder and the bag. Biggest waste of money for an amazon purchase ever! It's sure alot harder to haul those 40 lb costco bags home...

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, August 20, 2013

I've been using this for years now. Fish are happy and so am I ($).

Two dollars per pound is a pretty good price. You can get this via subscribe and save more and if you order 4 more items you get another 15% off. It's practically FREE :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars the duct tape of tree care, August 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is really the most remarkable stuff. very handy in the garden, landscaping, etc. makes a nice inexpensive gift for a gardener. there's a one inch size too but for me it was overkill.

cut it wrong? just hook back together.

it's the duct tape of tree care!

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well, smells bad, July 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: Works very well. My lcd screen looks like new and all the smears from failed attempts to clean with household products were thankfully erased.

Cons: Holy crap this stuff smalls like a chemical plant. You can almost feel the tumors starting to grow.

It should have a big warning: Use in a well ventilated area

I give it a 5 for functionality but have to take off one star for the odor.

3.0 out of 5 stars noisy, June 23, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Vibrated from day one. Now after 2 months one fan has developed a roaring noise. Amazon's return window is 30 days so I'll have to see how good corsair's 3 year warranty really is...

3.0 out of 5 stars not a 6 port card, June 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a 4 port card with 6 connectors. It has jumpers to select which ports are connected. So you can have 2 eSATA and 2 SATA; or you can have 4 SATA; or 3 SATA and 1 eSATA. But only 4 drives max connected.
