4.0 out of 5 stars a great TV out of the box and the wedge design ..., November 4, 2014
High quality picture out of the box requiring minimal tweaks to the settings. Giving 4 stars instead for the following reasons:
1) Light reflection on screen
2) Slower processor when accessing app store, compared to Samsungs I tested

Otherwise, a great TV out of the box and the wedge design makes the TV a dominant wall item....

3.0 out of 5 stars High level introduction to VB, October 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very high level book without delving into procedures that can be used at home. Can be a good read to know what VB ABA is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beginners guide, May 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an expensive book for what is covered in this book. Essentially this is an intro to what can be done using these technologies without delving into actual details. Many topics that need guidance from an experienced author were left to reference / API docs.

2.0 out of 5 stars Copy paste work from different public sites, November 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this book to be useless for any quick understanding and onboarding to Solr platform. This book is more like bunch of pointers to various online resources. Some of the advanced topics are very brief - hardly half page content, which was available on Solr Wiki anyway. I did not learn anything new from this book and I feel that the $50 price is just cheating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great printer but ....., December 27, 2009
The print quality is great. However,
1) Setting up the wireless connectivity is huge pain.
2) I am a tech guy, who deals with computers on a daily basis, at least for 10 hours a day. Still I could not easily figure out how to use the scanner. I had to read all manuals and forums to figure it out.
3) Thanks to made in China culture, I can see the fragile quality of the trays etc. But, this is not specific to Epson. I found similar hardware quality issues with HP and Canon as well.

I have absolutely no complaints about the quality of the printer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best compilation of U Srinivas, November 13, 2009
This review is from: Double Mandolin (Audio CD)
This is yet another best compilation of Carnatic music mastreo Sri U Srinivas. All the songs are very joyful. A must buy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Drops Connection every 5 min, February 12, 2008
I have this router for over an year now and as the time progressed, the router's performance has deteriorated. As of today, it drops connection every 5 minutes. I have heard similar complaints from my co-workers about this router.

I would not recommend this product.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great presentation, April 29, 2005
This book gives the same concepts as many other books. But, what makes this book stand out in the crowd is the presentation style. The concepts I learn from Head First series books stick in my mind forever. Must read for learning design patterns, without slipping into sleep :-)
