Weber 6492 Original Instant-Read Thermometer

Price: $9.99

4.0 out of 5 stars and the display is easy to read, February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works well, until it dies. This is my go-to thermometer for grilling. It reads very quickly and accurately, and the display is easy to read. However, they don't seem to last a long time. I've had several quit working in the same fashion... they worked fine until one day when they began showing absurdly low temperatures. Like giving readings below freezing while sitting at room temperature. My first purchases were from brick-and-mortar retailers. I didn't bother retaining the receipt for my ten dollar thermometers, so while Weber support responded when I contacted them, the first thing they asked for was the receipt. Dead end there. I repurchased from Amazon, primarily so I'd have the receipt handy if I ever need to send them in. I'd recommend this thermometer, but keep the receipt handy.

Does what it's supposed to. Sticks well to the tub, and provides a good non-slip surface. It is holding up over time but has yellowed a bit. A must-have if you are worried about slipping in the shower.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm an incorrigible packrat when it comes to cards. Credit cards, ATM cards, loyalty cards, IDs, you name it... for years, I've tried to stuff them into regular wallets and have caused them all to slowly (or quickly) come apart at the seams. They got so thick it was uncomfortable to sit down with my wallet in my back pocket. If you carry a lot of cards, this wallet is a must-have. I have over 30 cards in this wallet right now, and it is unbelievably thin due to the "2x2" layout.

Minor complaints: there are four pockets to hold cards, and then another compartment behind the card slots on one side. This might be meant to hold things besides cards, but I stuff it full of more cards. There is no separator in the middle, so some of the cards will slide around and overlap each other. Also, the cash compartments are quite deep because of the two-high design. It's not a problem to get cash out, but if you have smaller items that fall way down in there - stamps, receipts, etc. - they can be hard to retrieve.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great case. Protects the iPhone from impacts to the corners, and also to the screen (provided it lands on a flat surface), while adding almost nothing at all to the size of the phone. This seems like the right compromise between protection and size. Much easier to fit an (already enormous) phone in your pocket using this case than one of those "indestructible" plastic monstrosities that triples the size of your phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good weight for the paper, February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good weight for the paper. Security tinted. The nice thing about these envelopes is that the self-sealing mechanism doesn't require pulling off a strip of paper to expose the adhesive. Simply fold up one flap, then fold the other flap down, and the two adhesive surfaces meet. It's a bit quicker, and no waste... and it sure beats the hell out of licking envelopes. The seal seems fairly solid, but not as strong as self-sealing envelopes where you do remove the paper to expose the adhesive strip.

5.0 out of 5 stars and the connectors at the end seem like they're more resistant to splitting or fraying, February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a bit of a stickler about only buying cables and chargers made by the original manufacturer. But with Apple's MFi program, I figured I'd give this a shot. Seems to be a very well built cable. The cable feels a bit thicker than the Apple OEM cables, and the connectors at the end seem like they're more resistant to splitting or fraying. The fit into my iPhones' Lightning ports is snug, no worries about the cable sliding out. At one-third the price of Apple's 2m cable, you can't go wrong.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good: It's inexpensive, February 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good: It's inexpensive. There's a convenient remote button to toggle between the computers you're using... this is a nice change from KVM switches that make you hit a button on the main box, which you probably have tucked behind your equipment.

Bad: There are two USB cables to each computer, rather than the KVM switch acting as a USB hub. This isn't a bad thing in and of itself, but USB and VGA share the same cables until the end where they split... and if you only have one USB port on each side of your computer, it can be a stretch to get both USB cables inserted, as the cables only seem to be 6-8 inches long after the split.

Ugly: Crashed every computer I connected it to. Windows 10 bluescreened repeatedly. MacBook Air kept completely freezing. It started when I put this KVM switch in. It stopped when I pulled it back out. RMA'd it and bought a TRENDnet unit instead which has presented no similar issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good size, easy to use, January 17, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These bags make picking up after your dog so much easier. For years I had just reused shopping bags, but these are far more convenient. Good size, easy to use, no holes. I've purchased both the lavender scented and unscented bags... I don't really see a need for the scented ones. Tie off the bag after using and it doesn't really smell. I've also bought the box o' bags as well as the bags on rolls for use in a bag dispenser... I prefer the ones on the small rolls, so you can tear one off the dispenser right when you need it. With a box like this, you've got to tear one off before you go outside, and if you end up not using it, you just have to put it somewhere outside the box for use later.

As expected... plain old socks. Fit as expected. I'm a size 12 and they're not too small. Don't think the toes and heels are really reinforced.

Comfortable. Does a good job of cancelling out noise around you so you can hear better. However, the microphone does not cancel noise well. You may be isolated from the noise around you, but the people on the other end are going to hear it.

A button on the side of one of headset lets you quickly shut off the sound coming through the headphones so you can hear people around you without having to take off the headphones - this is really convenient when you're on a call or your jam comes on, and someone picks that moment to walk up to you and start talking.

Sound quality is fine for communications, but pretty average if you're planning to use these for music also.

The biggest strike against these headphones is reliability. We've bought perhaps 20 of them and had to return 3 in less than 6 months because they flaked out.
