Pushing Daisies Season 1 [HD]
Pushing Daisies Season 1 [HD]
Price: $16.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever, funny and very entertaining, April 5, 2014
One of the most creative and clever shows I've seen in a while. Very witty dialog and just a feel good show all around.

3.0 out of 5 stars good quality, but runs smalll, March 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I usually wear a small or extra small. The small size was so tight (it hardly stretches), I was not able to put it on at all. Should provide good support otherwise.

Usually wear a small but these Capri's were way too big. Material is VERY stretchy, not a skin tight fit. Seems I am unable to return it...

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad K cups, November 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Something wrong with the pods we ordered. The water doesn't run through properly and causes the water to run out the top. Because of this the tea has no flavor. The Twinings Chai Tea w/caffeine is fine, it's just these decaffeinated K cups that are defective. Unfortunately we ordered them several months before we tried them and now it's too late to return them. Unhappy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not absorbent, September 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I thought the purpose of a dishtowel is to dry the dishes. Well this item fails miserably at that task. I have come to learn microfiber towels are not very absorbent. They are good for polishing though. I use these on my car now.

2.0 out of 5 stars Is not an alarm clock, April 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this because of the description of the item from Philips. It is very deceptive and I would classify it as plain wrong.
First I would like to say that I like everything else about it. The display is nice and dim at night, and the color of the clock is a more sleep friendly red/orange instead of blue. The sound is decent. The extra USB port is perfect for charging my Kindle. And it is a nice compact size and looks good.

But I bought this as an alarm clock, and the description states "wakes you up" and "Combines Stereo and Alarm Clock Functionality for Bedroom Use". As other reviewers have stated this is not true and it does not work this way. I wish I had read the reviews first. I will unfortunately have to return this otherwise nice clock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really impressed, August 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought these because the oem screen protector was oos. These were cheaper and came in a 3-pack. I wasn't expecting much. To my surprise they are quite nice. I am impressed with the thickness and the matte finish enables my fingers to glide nicely across the screen. I am terrible at putting these things on, but I got the second one on perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in this price range, March 30, 2012
Got this camera for my son during a Woot-off. He loves it and I am impressed enough to buy another one. Can't beat it for the price (under seventy dollars)! The optical image stabilization with the long zoom range works great. The wide angle lens and the strong flash takes nice indoor pics. The camera is MUCH better than the Nikon Coolpix S3100 that I bought that is in the same price range. I also like that you can charge it using standard USB ports. What I don't care for is the Micro SD format and the high gloss finish. I also wish it came with a case.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good sound, a couple of minor flaws, March 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this as part of a promotional deal with my LG 47LM6700 3D TV. It is not being used with that TV since I have a proper surround setup in my family room. I am using it in my bedroom with the Samsung TV the LG replaced. One thing about sound bars is that they usually need to be placed in a square or rectangular room to get a good simulated surround effect. My bedroom is sort of an odd shape so I wasn't expecting much.

Upon unpacking I was disappointed by how light the subwoofer was; it felt cheap, but looks good. Pairing the subwoofer and a HP Touchpad tablet to the sound bar was an absolute breeze. But the Bluetooth range is poor; only about 10 feet. This is the main reason I only gave it 4-stars. The other thing that disappointed me was that LG used toslink instead of hdmi for the sound. This means no CEC; you cannot use your TV remote to control the sound bar. I have a universal remote that will control both, but I can see why some people are upset by this poor design idea. I would have given it 3-stars because of this, but then I turned it on.

The sound is usually what's most important. For a < $300 sound bar package I was pleasantly surprised by the sound quality. Yes the bass is boomy, but the vocals from the sound bar are actually quite excellent. Again, this is a cheap system for my bedroom, so I am not trying to compare this to my Hsu Research surround setup in my movie room or my Bose Acoustimass in my family room. Plus the simulated surround sound works pretty well in my odd shaped bedroom. It has plenty of volume too. To anyone suggesting that it's about the same as their TV speakers; you must have a damaged unit or reviewing the wrong item.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful TV with a cool remote, March 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been using my TV for about 4-days now. I know Amazon has a separate shipping/packaging review area so I won't let what happened reflect on this rating, but I do want to mention that the TV was shipped in the store box with no additional packaging or protection. The first TV arrived with a cracked screen, but Amazon overnighted another TV (packed the same way) and it arrived OK.

I bought this TV based on my experience testing one at a local electronics store. I was really impressed with the 3D quality using passive glasses which was a requirement for me (I did not want active shutter); I also really liked the remote. I found it super easy to type in the search fields and to make on-screen selections. It's very accurate and easy to use. And since the TV also has an IR receiver I was also able to add the TV to my Logitech Harmony 880 remote as well.

It has taken some time learning how to use all the TV features correctly because the owner's manual is weak, which is probably my biggest complaint. It took me a while to figure out what all the 3D setup options were and what all the selections were for. The on-screen interface is very cool and super easy to navigate; especially with the magic remote. The only thing lacking that I wish it had is Pandora radio. There must be some legal reason because when I use the TVs web browser and go to Pandora.com there is no audio. IN LG SmartTV there are a lot of free apps, including some cool 3D programing.

Picture quality is great with plenty of brightness. I was impressed that it was to my liking right out of the box. There is a short setup process when you first turn it on that lets you turn the energy saving feature on/off (I chose off) and if the TV is in a store/home (I chose home). It has no more or less light bleeding than any other LED TV I sampled, and has no light leakage. My Samsung had a more even backlighting, but that is only noticeable when it's a black screen; and seems to be a problem with a lot of LED TVs (all the ones I looked at anyway. One thing I would like to point out is that I seem to get the best 3D experience when the room is completely dark. I normally watch TV with a soft light behind the TV, but I now turn it off when I'm watching 3D. Glare also really impacts the 3D quality.

To top all of this off, the TV is one of the most beautiful sets on the market. I replaced a 40" Samsung LCD, and I was worried that this 47" might be too big in the same space; but because it is almost frameless it is only 1" wider (the Samsung had a distracting thick, high gloss frame). It has a sleek modern design with brushed metal accents. The stand is a very heavy plastic with a matching brushed metal finish.

All-in-all I am extremely pleased with my purchase. I feel I got a great price and I love the package deal from Amazon that included LG AG-F216 Cinema 3D Glasses Family Pack (6-Pairs) for 2011 LG 3D LED-LCD HDTVs and the LG NB3520A 300W Sound Bar with Wireless Subwoofer.

***UPDATE***

After using it a bit more I wanted to add a couple things:

The light bleeding I mentioned earlier is only noticible on the initial startup splash screen where the LG logo is on a black background. Once the TV warms up there is almost no noticable light bleed on dark scenes. I am very happy with this.

When watching a movie from a flash drive, the play, pause, forward, rewind, buttons on my Harmony remote don't do anything. I have to use the magic remote.

We watched the Immortals in 3D and the effects were nothing short of amazing. We are so happy with this TV.

***UPDATE 2***

If internet access and Apps are important to you, you might be disappointed. To me the LG Smart TV Apps are pretty much worthless. I like Netflix, Amazon VOD, Pandora Radio, iHeart Radio, and Slacker Radio. The only one that this TV has is Netflix (it does work well). The TV has a decent web browser, but when I go to any of the radio websites they block the sound. Navigating Amazon Prime VOD is just a terrible experience and not worth the effort. I will be connecting my Logitech Review back to the TV. Bottom-line: Great hardware, disappointing web connectivity.

If this were a 10-star rating system I'd give the TV an 8.5
The 3D really impresses.
