5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Replacement for Koss KSC75's and PortaPro's., May 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought 2 Pairs - one for a pair of Koss KSC75 hook-on earphones; and one for a pair of Koss PortaPro headphones. I found them to fit Perfectly. The original foam ear cushions deteriorated and ripped off these 2 earphones, but the phones themselves were OK. These 2 Black Soft Pleather pads offered a nicer look, and better on-the-ear seal. Hopefully, they'll be more durable and will last the life of the headphones. Note - the little pins on these headphones grip either the foam or these ear cushions quite nicely. Conversely, these same pins can make mounting the new cushions more difficult -- you'll need Patience when Gently pulling them onto the phones. Recommend you use your fingers in pulling them on, I believe needle nose pliers will be too strong - can rip the mounting lips of these cushions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, quality substitute for standard MR 16 25W bulbs!, December 14, 2014
Great, quality substitute for standard MR16 25W bulbs! Had a standard MR16 25W bulb blow out in a favorite 3-foot tall fiber optic Christmas tree (which lights it up in nice rotating rainbow colors). The standard bulbs only lasted about 3 seasons at most. Found this new LED-type bulb, which promises to last much longer. The new LED bulb is only a few dollars more than a standard bulb. Height Consideration -Take note, the diameter of the bulb is about the same as a standard MR16 bulb, but it does stand ~ 1/4" taller. After adjusting the Christmas tree's MR16 bulb holding bracket for the additional height, found it works as well (and a bit brighter) as the conventional bulb. So far, Highly Recommended, and worth the Slight additional expense.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you loved it in the theater in 3D, you'll love to own this for home!, December 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Godzilla (3D) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Saw it on an airline trip on the tiny LCD screen - loved the plot and the production. Wanted to own it and watch it in 3D on my Home Theater Projector. You really have to see it on the big screen with big sound to appreciate the intended *SCALE* of Godzilla and the enemy monsters. Buy it and enjoy!

Does what it's supposed to. Good friction fit into female eSATA ports. Installed one on my Verizon FiOs DVR box to an external hard disk drive. Installed another on a HDD dock with eSATA and USB3 ports.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Any Serious Martial Artist!, December 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great Product at a Great Price! Excellent for training technique and durable too! Thanks for other reviewers who recommended adding inexpensive Steel Carabiner Clips to reinforce / replace the existing black plastic "O" clips. As mentioned many times by other users, it is Designed and *Sized* for the Century Wavemaster XXL punching bag, which it perfectly fits. By the way, I also installed the Century Uppercut Bag above the Strong Arm II - makes a great artificial jaw target above the arms.

5.0 out of 5 stars For 2005 Infiniti G35x Sedan - Perfect OEM replacement, December 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For 2005 Infiniti G35x Sedan - Perfect OEM replacement; Essential to have when replacing HID Headlamp - 3 of these clips and 2 phillips screws hold the wheel well shroud covering the Headlamp access. If the clips are old and brittle, they will break off instead of being pulled off cleanly.- therefore, have a few spares handy!

5.0 out of 5 stars NO Need to Buy In Pairs unless you want -- Perfect OEM DIY replacement part., December 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Confirmed low price after web-researching for this item. Perfect OEM replacement for a burned out driver side lamp in my 2005 Infiniti G35x. Followed YouTube installation instructions - took about an hour (Valuable Information!) - involves dismounting front wheel / tire; and loosening the plastic wheel well shroud by removing 3 Nissan Push-Type Clips 01553-09321 (I bought some Necessary Spares here on Amazon). Removed the 6 year-old lamp (which actually fractured); and installed and tested the new lamp - Works Perfectly!

Found there was No Difference in intensity and color to the working, existing 6 year-old passenger side lamp - you really NO NEED To buy two, unless you Want to -- I'm holding off until the other one does go out.

*** From Philips own D2R Rebate form: "Philips Xenon HID replaces a single burned-out lamp while matching the color of the unchanged one. Its single-lamp replacement technology allows for one-by-one replacement while still matching the color temperature of the unchanged lamp... "

** Shame on Infiniti / Nissan for making it this difficult to replace such an important Consumable Safety item! Shame on dealer service for charging $200 - 400 for this replacement! ** At the time of purchase in November 2014, Amazon reported availability of a Mail Rebate - working on that with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Buy in Lightweight 3D DLP glasses!, August 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A Great Buy in Lightweight 3D DLP glasses! The price for these Okeba Ultralights is very fair. The Okeba's are the lightest I could find for wearing over eyeglasses. Tested and works well with my Optoma GT750E projector at 120 Hz (I don't have a 144 Hz DLP to test against). Since they are lightweight plastic, the arms are square, thin, and fragile. Very comfortable when worn over eyeglasses. The square arms don't cut into your ears. Again, they are lightweight plastic and are Fragile - not to be tossed around haphazardly. Much more comfortable than my SainSonic SSZ-200DLW over eyeglasses, which have sharp, narrow, heavier arms that cut into ears over time, and the SainSonic's curved frames don't fit over eyeglasses easily. The SainSonics also cost 30% more. I came across these Okeba glasses during a search for DLP glasses designed like the "3VIEW® Passive 3D Slip-On Glasses for Prescription Eyewear" that I also bought from Amazon - I believe those Are the Lightest (weigh almost nothing), Minimalist 3D glasses you can buy (so far, these Okeba are closest to the 3VIEW's in weight).

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great out of the box!, August 25, 2014
Works great out of the box! Although it's a "Japanese" model (Not Warrantied in the U.S., but U.S. Warehoused and Fulfilled by Amazon), the camera's badging, controls, and display menus are multilingual (including English) at about HALF the price of the "U.S." model. The enclosed manual is in Japanese, but you can download the English manual as a pdf from Fujifilm directly. I developed a kit for mine -- Ordered some higher powered, spare 3rd party batteries and a 32GB SDHC UHS-I flash card for it - all work great in the camera. Using a Joby Men's UltraFit Sling Strap with it. Found the need to buy a simple $5 aluminum tripod screwed camera handle from China to aid in handling the small camera (my long fingers keep blocking the Right sided lens). Not using the Fuji Film software -- I'm a long time user of Stereo Photo Maker - a great, Free 3D photo editing software. Special notes - 1) the latest and last firmware update was version 1.20, released 5/13/2011, and I found that was already installed on my camera (no risk of "bricking" a newly received camera). 2) In the past, there were some old complaints about the Vertical Axis Alignment (bad = L lens looking up, while R lens looking down, or vice versa). Some reviewers mentioned the twin lenses to be vertically misaligned and uncorrectable - I found mine was pretty close to perfect at maximum zoom out, but could easily be adjusted if need be. However, I could Further "micro" align (beyond the fineness of the camera's vertical alignment control) the L & R images easily with the Stereo Photo Maker software if I really wanted to.
