5.0 out of 5 stars Temperature Technology, August 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is very easy to read the large dial and it represents an attractive addition to our back yard. I would recommend this thermometer as a good value to anyone who wants to keep informed of the local temperature.

5.0 out of 5 stars SimplyShred Review, October 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall, I am very happy with this product, although it does have some quirks.

The shredded strips are thin (about 3/16") but somewhat long (about 1 3/4"). As I use this machine to shred non-security-sensitive paperwork, this is not an issue for me but might be for some users.

The machine continues to run for a short time after the paper has been shredded. I think this is intended to clear remaining paper from the grinding mechanism. This design probably can viewed as a plus, as it likely will minimize jammed-paper incidents.

There is a short slot to destroy CDs, but unlike other machines that I have, this short slot will not shred paper. As I don't use the machine to dispose of CD's I have covered the slot with a label indicating it doesn't shred paper.

The machine works reasonably quickly, isn't too loud for a small office, and has a 7.4 gallon easy-to-empty bin. During the short time that I have had this product, I have been very happy with it and would not hesitate to buy another one if needed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mislabeled Package Problem, December 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered and was billed for a Canon PGI-5 BK 2-pack but received only one cartridge in a 1-tank sized box that had a 2-pack label on the bottom of the box. The package weighs 2.15 ounces. A 2-cartridge box should weigh about 4 ounces.

I just noticed that the picture of the box on Amazon's web site shows a picture of two cartridges on the front of the box. The picture on the box I received shows only one cartridge.

Amazon refused to send just one additional cartridge, but insisted instead on sending a replacement 2-pack. They want me to then send back the incorrectly labeled product that I have.

My concern is that they will send another 1-tank cartridge also incorrectly labeled as a 2-pack, and I will be expected to return one while being billed for 2, or requested to return both without having a cartridge to use.

I can understand if a shipping clerk carelessly filled a 2-pack order with a 1-pack by mistake (as mistakes can happen), but the mislabeled box leads me to suspect that there may be many such mislabeled boxes at Amazon.

I hope I am wrong and this is just a one-of-kind problem, but I suspect that the incorrect label was applied to at least however many boxes there were for that particular batch of cartridges.

1.0 out of 5 stars Short-Lived 20,000 hour bulbs, May 17, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The bulbs arrived within a week of placing the order. I tested all 10 bulbs upon arrival and all of them worked.

I installed 5 of these bulbs in outdoor home lighting fixtures about 10 days ago. They are on a timer to operate about 12 hours a day. After about 120 hours of operation, 3 burned out in 3 separate fixtures. I would not buy this brand of bulb again.

On 5/18/12, eleven days after installing the bulbs, a fourth one has burned out. This product should be removed from Amazon's web site due to its extremely poor performance.

On 5/23/12 two more of these bulbs burned out. I will replace all of them this week with another brand.

1.0 out of 5 stars This product is a scam!, April 7, 2012
New Mexicans for Science and Reason teamed with KQRE-TV13 in a scientific debunking of both this product and the alleged magnetic water softening process (link not allowed by Amazon). This product and other products using magnetic technology to supposedly reduce water hardness are worthless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Switch/Receptacle, July 17, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I installed this in a laundry room in place of a fan switch where there was no conveniently located electric receptacle. I think it is a good value, even with the inflated shipping costs. I had an extra wall plate so the fact that was not included was not a problem for me. I am happy with this purchase.

This product is well made. It gives me the extra space I need to access a crowded USB port configuration on my laptop. I recommend this product to anyone who needs to solve a similar problem.

3.0 out of 5 stars Drive is Good, but encryption software and tech support are lacking, April 25, 2011
When using the encryption option for this drive there is a setting for "Auto-Authentication" that is supposed to allow the drive to connect to a designated computer without having to log in with a password, but this feature does not work with Windows 7. The Tech support person said they were aware of the problem and were working on it, but the issue is not shown on their web site.

When I tried to remove the encryption using the "Release Authentication" button, I received a message saying "unable to run because the hard drive is in use", even though it wasn't in use. I called tech support and they suggested resetting the drive to factory settings, which will remove the encryption but will also remove everything stored on the drive as well. The technician blamed my computer instead of accepting the fact there was a problem with their software.

The drive also came pre-formatted with the FAT32 file system, which I did not notice until after I had stored information on it. To convert it to NTFS, I had to re-format the drive and then restore the data from backup. Converting the drive with the data intact did not work because that process requires a reboot and the drive when encrypted is not visible until after the computer has finished rebooting and the login screen is completed. I could not remove the encryption because the management software thought the drive was in use when it was not.

I am happy with the drive itself, but the encryption management software and the company tech support leave much to be desired. Their web site also was of no help in identifying or resolving any of these issues.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skillet Cover Can Be Significant Safety Hazard, December 12, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought the Presto 16-inch electric skillet with glass cover(06852) on 8/24/06 from Amazon.com. I was very satisfied with this product until yesterday when it was being used to heat chicken on the Warm setting. Without warning the cover exploded, spraying glass from the center of the cover everywhere. If I had been standing near it at the time I could have been seriously injured. I checked on the Internet and discovered that other people have experienced the same problem with other glass covered electric cookware. I will be replacing this unit with a metal-covered Presto electric skillet model 06850.
