5.0 out of 5 stars i then bought a cheaper one off of ebay only to find the pairing to be terribly complicated and unreliable and the sound quality, December 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
this is the one i should have bought in the first place. at first, i balked at the price and ordered a cheaper bluetooth transmitter from monoprice only to find out that one doesn't work while it is charging, meaning i could not leave it plugged in behind my TV and forgetting about it. the sound was marred by loud hissing in the background of quiet passages or scenes. i then bought a cheaper one off of ebay only to find the pairing to be terribly complicated and unreliable and the sound quality was terrible. after returning both, i finally ordered the taotronics. the packaging is excellent and it comes with a two RCA to 1/4-inch mini plug Y-cable...nice! pairing was super easy and the sound quality is very, very good. i don't notice much lag while using it for watching TV. a little pricey but, oh so worth it compared to the other lame bluetooth transmitters out there.

1.0 out of 5 stars controls render game unplayable, October 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In spite of the bad reviews I still bought this game thinking the controls can't be THAT bad...I was wrong. I'm using the mono force wheel and pedals and trying to steer is a nightmare...almost impossible to even track a straight line...the car flies from one side to the other with minute steering corrections. Turning off steering assist in the settings helps but only minimally. Frustratingly unplayable...I gave up.

2.0 out of 5 stars decent camera but refurb problems and wireless interference probs!, October 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i have 3 wireless IP cameras in my house: one foscam, one D-link and a loftek. i got them all a little over two years ago. in that time, i've been through two lofteks and decided stay away from them even though they're customer service was very responsive and helpful. i opted for this fixed-position foscam as a replacement and thought i'd save a few bucks by getting a refurbished one. well, the first one arrived and it looked new...the problem was, it would power on but refused to connect to my network. i tried it on 2 different routers, a hub and a switch with no luck so i returned it and ordered another one. when the second one arrived and i opened the box, i was shocked to find just the camera body, the antenna and the power adapter...no instruction manual, no CD, and, most importantly, no mounting stand! still, i wanted to make sure it worked so i set it up and it worked. set-up is a royal PITA. the foscam instructions which i downloaded from their website are horrendous and the built-in DDNS address did not work so i resorted to assigning it to my dyndns.org host which finally gave me wireless connectivity. luckily, i am somewhat experienced with networks and IP cameras or i never would have figured it out. foscam claims 7 meters of IR range but it is definitely less than my other cameras that claim about the same range. so, in summary, the FI8909W is a good camera,especially for the price, but i'd highly recommend buying a new one to avoid any potential refurb hassles like i'm dealing with. it took me such a long time to get the camera properly setup and configured that i don't want it send it back for a replacement just to get the stand so i just emailed foscam support and asked them to send me one. we shall see...

october 7 update: foscam support emailed me back the very next day asking for a copy of my invoice and sent out the missing piece the next day. i received it just two days later. excellent customer service.

october 11 update: shortly after installing the FI8909W, our remotes for our garage door starting acting really squirrelly, refusing to open or close the garage door 95% of the time. i then ran a cat-5 cable directly to the camera and disabled the wireless in the web interface and removed the antenna yet the problem persisted. i performed a series of tests: unplug the camera's power, the garage door openers work fine. plug in the camera, the garage door openers stop working. repeated over and over again with same result. i finally put my FI8918W in the same spot (hard-wired connection) and everything works fine. so, my words of caution: WATCH OUT FOR WIRELESS INTERFERENCE WITH THE FI8909W!

5.0 out of 5 stars super happy with mine...like better than the gas-powered ones, August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
my homeowners association sent me a letter telling me to remove the mold growing on the north face of our house. my brother-in-law has a fancy gas-powered pressure washer that i've borrowed on occasion before...powerful but noisy, sucks gas, and is tiring to use. this AR blue unit had such awesome reviews and is so reasonably-priced that i figured i'd just buy my own pressure washer.

first of all, i almost ran down to home depot to buy a brass coupler based on some of the reports here of leakage but i thought i'd try it out first. i'm glad i did. i used the unit extensively over the weekend (6 hours each saturday and sunday) and experienced no leakage with the supplied couplers. set up was easy and seems very nearly as powerful as my brother-in-law's $400 pressure washer. the adjustable spray head is very, very convenient and much better than swapping tips. the cord is super long and the hose is just about right.

this unit works as advertised. it's light, compact and easy to use. i only have one minor complaint: there is no trigger lock button to hold the trigger down. it takes a fair amount of pressure to hold the trigger down and it gets very tiring after the first hour, especially when you're way up on tall ladder and using the other hand to hold onto the ladder. i eventually discovered a cable tie works well here. other than that, a first-class product at a great price.

2.0 out of 5 stars whoa! why did KMS have to change a good thing?, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i've been using the KMS hairstay gel for over a decade but i was down to my last little bit. i read with trepidation all the other reviews that said the new formula stinks so i tried unsuccessfully to locate bottles of the old formula. so, i went ahead and ordered a bottle of the new stuff. well, on one hand, it doesn't smell like rotting garbage (which is good), on the other hand, it doesn't smell nice either. i would describe it as kind of "industrial" and "chemical"-smelling. the worst part though is that it is strong. even if i use the smallest amount in my hair, i can smell it. and, if i can smell it, everyone around me will be able to too. i'm kind of bewildered by KMS's move here...what in the world were they thinking?!? bad, bad move. unless KMS goes back to the old "cranberry" fragrance, i'm going to have to look for an alternative.

5.0 out of 5 stars way better than i was expecting!, August 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
my samsung galaxy S3 is white but i didn't want a white case because i just knew it'd get dirty fast. so, i got this black one and it's perfect! when closed, the only white you can see is a little bit at the bottom. the case itself holds the S3 securely and the overall fit is perfect. the case and the cover are very thin, barely adding any bulk and allowing it to still fit in my jeans pockets with ease. looks great, fits greats, works great. love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars very impressed...am going to buy more, August 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i ordered three of these to try out and will soon order three more. i had bought some cheapies at walmart and the light output was pathetic so i returned them. i ordered these from amazon based on the positive reviews and, i must say, i'm impressed. decent brightness for a solar-powered light and the charge lasts a looooong time and the color output is perfect. however, i do have three gripes: 1) the stakes are FLIMSY...one broke the first time i tried pushing it into the ground. 2) the angle of the head doesn't aim high enough for me...i ended up having to insert the stake into the ground at an angle so i could get the light beam pointed up high enough. and 3) why didn't malibu make the diameter of the stake the same as 1/2-inch PVC pipe? it's off by just a tiny bit. this would have allowed the use of PVC pipe was the stakes. otherwise, these are excellent and highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars works okay on 3G ipod touch but be careful who you order from, May 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
my son was asking for this so i placed my order for this item with C-tech on april 24th. the next day, i received an email notification that it was shipped. weeks go by and it still has not shown up. so, i go back and reread that email notification and that's when i noticed that the expected delivery date is june 7th!!! six whole weeks?!?! i decide to order one from SF planet since my son is asking me everyday when it will arrive. i ordered it on may 11th and it arrived just a few days later...my son is thrilled. guess what arrived two days ago? the mic from china. ugh.

both mics work on my son's ipod touch 3G.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed with the neck, December 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i couldn't decide between this and another similar flexible USB LED light so i bought both. i thought i'd like this better because the head was thinner and the i preferred the black finish to the silver finish of the other unit i was looking at. the lamps are not particularly bright and the sliding on/off switch located near where the neck connects to the head is awkward to use. however, my biggest complaint is that the neck is so thin, the light will not stay where i position it...it constantly droops.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, December 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i was initially torn between this one and another one and ended up just buying both. as it turns out, this was the better one. the flexible neck stays where it is positioned and the light is bright enough for the illuminating the keyboard in the dark (the main reason i bought it for). the push button on/off switch is well-positioned and works well. my two gripes are: 1) the "low" setting is barely different that the "high" setting and, 2) there's a row of blue lights on the top side of the head which is completely unnecessary and even unwanted as they cause glare.
