4.0 out of 5 stars The Qi wireless charger works just fine with that on, April 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just got my Note 4 and had to protect it as well as I did my 2 year old Note 2. But I was also switching to wireless charging (i also have extra batteries charging as I am phone intensive). The inner clear silastic cover appears to be a robust protector as was my Note 2 protector. The Qi wireless charger works just fine with that on. When I put on the hard outer cover, the wireless charger did not pick up. So 1 star off. But if you dont need or use wireless charging, consider this a 5 star review.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far so good. I got this memory for an Acer C720 ..., December 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So far so good. I got this memory for an Acer C720 chromebook with 16 gb storage. The other more popular memory seemed to have a lot of failures in reviews. I have had good luck with transcend stuff so I gave it a try. Very easy to install exactly like has been written in reviews. This went in easy. When I reinstalled the chrome OS system, the chromebook got stuck in a loop. I did not see this in any other review. So i just turned it off and decided I would have to try to reinstall all over again. However when it rebooted up, the ssd was formatted and the OS was installed. I have 106.3 gb memory on board! Gotta love chrome OS, it put all my extensions back on. Next stop, Ubuntu.

edit- added ubuntu "trusty" unity yesterday using crouton. The Acer hangs a bit so far, but appears pretty stable. Libre office, firefox, etc etc all installed.The memory says 110 gb left on the ssd in ubuntu and 106 left in chrome os just fyi.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great device, December 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a device for every software platform. My wife's go to device is an original Samsung Chromebook with the Gogo subscriptions. I miss that. However on cyber Monday the Acer C720 was available for $150. Had to have one. Got it last Thursday. Wrote a paper modification on Google docs, translated to word docx and sent it to the principal author. I did some financial things with sheets and translated to xls. I edited a powerpoint talk and saved it in ppt. I am writing a book chapter on it right now. Oh, we watched Hulu and Amazon Prime yesterday on a Chromecast with a download speed of 2mbs. It was perfect. I have had a macbook air, its gone now, and all the windows stuff. I don't see how I can use a Chromebook to edit and save a Microsoft Access database (pm me if you know how to do this). This Access issue and the power plug at a 90 degree angle are the 2 things that take a star off. This is better than the Samsung Chromebook in my opinon having used them both.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great way to recharge that second battery, August 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Left my first one in a hotel room. This is a great way to recharge that second battery. But if you try to use the usb charger the battery won't charge in it's slot which is no big deal. A value.

This bag was a great value for under 80 dollars. It is light and easy to carry. I like the water bottle holder location. My wife wants one in purple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great hat, February 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sierra Hat
My wife got this hat to wear to Europe in late November and early December. She wanted a hat with a large brim for sun protection that was wool for warmth. This hat did both very well for her. The brim was stiff enough that it didn't flap around in a breeze and had a chin strap for really windy days. We think she got a lot of compliments in the Christmas markets but we don't speak German.
