5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite inserts for work, dress and casual shoes, January 24, 2012

I've tried many different models and manufactures over the years and these are the best. They have great arch support too. Worth every penny.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Modern Day Greek Myth and Tragedy, January 4, 2012
This is such a powerful story, it blew me away.

It's so rare for anyone to risk everything they have (security, money, health, a future, family, love, etc.) for something they believe in...(or at least initially believe in, in Pat Tillman's case). Its even more unbelievable that he was a professional athlete and rising star in the NFL looking forward to million dollar paydays. Its a real life and modern day Greek Myth & Tragedy when you consider how and what he died for ultimately.

His story makes me agree with those that argue that war is senseless and absurd, especially the case of the Iraq and Afghan wars. And that the costs of these wars goes beyond money; inconceivable are the costs to any family that loses a loved one over there, and on both sides.

His story also reminds me that there are actually people in this world that feel compelled to act on what they believe in...at any cost. This world would not be worth living in without them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound and a steal at $54 for quality Sennheiser Audiophile headphones, June 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are my second pair of Sennheiser headphones and I am continually impressed. I had the PX-100's which I broke by sitting on them after 4 yrs of constant use. I will spare you a technical review and simply say that at $54 on Amazon they are the best value (a steal!) for audiophile quality headphones especially if you're mainly using these for computer, mobile device, phone, iPod, etc. listening. They rock, are comfortable and sound great! Get them today before they sell out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Compact and it works., April 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had this adaptor for 3 months now and it works great. I have a Dell Lattitude E4300 and needed a second smaller power supply for travel. I replaced the Kensington model that started "beeping" shortly after its warranty expired.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great little light but it arrived broken. Come on MagLight., February 27, 2011
I got this flashlight for my 5 year nephew and he loves it but not until he had to ship it back as it arrived broken. The replacement works great but he had to ship it back and my brother had to pay for shipping to return it. Thanks to Amazon this is easy but he still had to drive to the post office and pay for return shipping.

Come on Maglite, improve your quality control.

I still recommend this flight light, its bright and comes in camo design, but make sure to look at Nebo flash lights too as they are competitively priced on Amazon.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great idea and features but not durable and broke in a year., February 27, 2011
I've only had this power cord for about a year and it started beeping intermittently. The tip needed for the my Dell Latitute cracked after normal use and travel in my laptop bag. I paid approx $100 for it and now need to buy a new one. Based upon the reviews I've read, I would NOT buy this adaptor unless you don't plan on travelling with it and simply using it at a desk or babying it as it is not durable.

Look at the new DELL OEM Latitude E6410 Slim-Line Laptop AC Adapter Chargers or possibly the at the newest logitech models.

A fun and quick read. If youre a political junkie you'll get a kick out of some of the personal descriptions and accounts of the characters that run for political office and their supporting casts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Value almost 5 Stars, January 21, 2010
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Nyco charger with two batteries is a great value for anyone that has just purchased an Xbox and is looking for rechargeable batteries and a charger base.

As you can see from the picture it comes with charger base that can accomodate two controllers with the batteries in place. It also comes with two batteries for only [...]!

However, this charger will not recharge the standard Microsoft batteries ([...])as those are not compatible with the Nyco Charger base.

I unfortunately now have two Microsoft batteries that require the play and charge kit (above) and this Nyco charger and two Nyco rechargeable batteries. If this charger could charge the Microsoft batteries as well this would have earned a 5 rating.

I have only had this prodcut for a week and its performance is superb so far. The batteries came almost fully charged so it took less than 15 mins total to charge both. Mine arrived from Target/ITC via Amazon. I selected the black model to match my Xbox. Hope this helps.

Get it, you won't be dissappointed. Its very slick looking and well constructed. The only note I would add is, Like Ferrari's it takes time to clean properly.
