5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Features, Image Quality, August 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
25 minutes to install. 15 minutes with the manual, though mostly intuitive once you know basically what the buttons do. Was able to slip the wiring under the headliner, across to the door, between the headliner and the "A" pillar trim without removing the trim, inside and down the door gasket, up under the dash to the power (cigarette lighter receptacle). I did use a plastic molding removal tool so I didn't scratch anything (Astro Pneumatic 4505, Amazon)

The manual's a tad awkward, but nothing major. The only thing to understand that isn't clear in the manual, is when you plug it into a computer, all you get is access to the memory card, there isn't any special software or features that will show up on your computer. All settings are done on the camera.

Amazed at the image quality, especially at this price. Only downside is you have to make some decisions about what data you want to capture with the images, not an issue for me.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This comes in one size, and I'm guessing that it's fine if you're anywhere from 7 1/4 to 7 1/2, though if you wash it or get it wet the 7 1/2 is going to feel tight for a while. No idea what the significance of "pigment dyed" is. I have these in two colors and wear them to run in the sun. I've also washed them both. They're solidly made, the colors don't bleed. 100% cotton, not waterproof. They shrank a bit on washing, but stretched back. No metal parts to rust or corrode.

it is what it is. Filter for 2003 Miata. Seemed odd that locally only the dealer had them and that's a 15 mile drive and twice as much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, It Works!, August 10, 2014
My TomTom 2535 has been flaky for about a year, never occurred to me it was the battery. The video that comes with the battery is on YouTube so you might want to see what you're getting in to before the purchase. Opening the case can be frustrating; it is with all these electronics unless you do it all the time and I don't. Stick with it. Start from the bottom where you've removed the screws. There are three "catches" on each short side and four slightly different ones on the top. The plastic spudger works and it is all you need, though I found it works best sort of backwards from what seems intuitive. You'll figure it out. Once one catch finally gives, the rest are easy.

Because of the way the wiring on the battery goes, you do have to unscrew the circuit board as the video shows. Note that under the top edge it's held down by clips. Note too, two of the screws are different, machine screws so note where each screw goes.

As soon as I plugged the battery in, the TomTom booted and is completely back to normal. All my "favorites" still there. I'm impressed.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Dark Enough In Bright Sun, August 5, 2014
Basically these are very dark, narrow sunglasses. Most of the time they're effective, but facing the sun with a clear sky with my eyes closed, it is still uncomfortably bright. I covered the lens with duck tape.

It is precisely as described, well made. I'm using it to fish small animals and debris out of a sump pump that's in an unusual environment. I needed something small, rust proof and durable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, Fun, Durable with a Learning Curve, August 4, 2014
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Fun and the learning curve will bring a few laughs. First, this thing is durable, though all of our crashes have been on grass. This runs on the ground, as well as in the air, but the ground capability makes no sense, it works but there are better choices if you want a ground vehicle. There is a learning curve and when we tried to learn to fly it in the yard we were on a steep learning curve and we were struggling. We went to a park and got some range and altitude where we had lots of room to make corrections before crashing, things went much more smoothly. It needs a smooth surface for about 20' to get enough speed to take off. Doesn't hand launch well and will not take off in grass. Flying is simple; if there's any "trick" it's to back off the throttle until you develop control skills.

The batteries are not replaceable, only rechargeable so you can fly for either side of 7 minutes, then it takes about half an hour to recharge. You can recharge from the 6 AA batteries in the control transmitter or plug into a USB port, which seems to be a tad faster. It's a little pricey, if it were cheaper it would be fun to have two and alternate flying and charging.

The description says it's for ages 5 to 15 and the box says age 8+. The box is accurate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits, Functional, July 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just wanted a simple, cheap, washable hat for running that would protect my head from the sun. This works. Nothing fancy, no exotic headband, made well enough. The 59 cm circumference described is right on, just a tad larger than 7 3/8". I suspect it will shrink after the first washing, but also suspect it's easy enough to stretch back out. I hate spending $30 or more for a hat I'm going to profusely sweat in, even if it's washable. The other thing about more expensive hats is the vents are often made with metal grommets that rust and stain the fabric after rain or sweat. The vents on this are simple thread reinforcements.

5.0 out of 5 stars Serious Piece of Hardware, July 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Surprised at what a serious piece of hardware this is. Anchored it with #14 stainless screws and am confident it isn't going anyplace. The clip is 1/8" thick and the D ring is welded, 7/16" thick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Dewatering Toilets, July 31, 2014
Several times a year I need to get the water out of toilets either for maintenance or at the end of the summer season to replace the water with an antifreeze mix so they don't freeze. I've been using a manual boat sump pump, which works but basically requires two people. This is quick, one person operation and gets more of the water out. Perfect.
