2.0 out of 5 stars Over-rated Tire that doesn't last very long., July 12, 2016
Not worth the price. I bought based on reviews. They had good traction in rain & snow for the first 5000 miles. Most tires do. They have worn very fast and poorly. They are worn out at only 30000 miles. The traction is now just average. I hope to replace them soon.

Dacor 24 In. Stainless Steel Built-In Dishwasher - RDW24S

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. Cleans dishes well. Solid construction., February 19, 2016
Excellent dishwasher. Yes, it is a bit louder than the 41dB dishwashers, but it is not "loud" IMO. A bit of water noise, but way quieter than 1990s DW it replaced.

Most importantly the dishes are spotless and dry. Wash cycles takes the same time as old dishwasher.

Plastics of course take longer to dry, but this is true of all modern dishwashers.

Very little plastic construction inside. Solid nylon over graphite racks. Stainless steel interior. Easy to clean filter. Metal spray arms for top and bottom. IMO, this is better than poly-carbonate arms, which practically all DW makers now use.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't fall for the classic space revival hype. This is nothing like classic space lego. It has too many stickers too!, January 5, 2016
There's classic space lego and there's late 80s space lego. The original late 70s, early 80s space lego has the simplistic design. It has less of a "toy" look and more of a realistic space look. Late 80s, they ruined the original appeal, at least for me.

This has "some" classic space feel, but it is really more late 80s throwback. It also has a ton of stickers. The original space classic lego had zero stickers. I'm ok with the new elements, but this is a big miss, especially the stickers. It also looks more like a unrealistic toy than the original space lego.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disregards basic ocean safety. Have to change story around when I read it., October 30, 2015
This book starts off promising, but it soon misses the mark. The author wants to show conquering fears, but the venue is completely wrong. The ocean is a dangerous place and water safety takes a serious after-thought in this story. Yes, it is just a story, but if anyone follows the examples set in this book, they are putting themselves at risk.

One of the main issues this reviewer has is that Ladybug chases a drifting play bucket that is being swept away by the ocean to "rescue it". She jumps right in to get it. No! You don't do this ever even if you can swim. This is totally irresponsible. One of the first lessons is wear a life-jacket in the water/ocean, don't go in alone, and never chase things that drift out. The ocean has rip currents and tides. The waves in the pictures are fairly big too. You never see her Mom beside her or watching her either.

Why'd I write this review? My daughter likes the books. For this one, we have to change the story around. Not recommended and poorly thought out. If you like this series, pick another book in the series.

1.0 out of 5 stars Drive problems after only 2 years with minimal usage., October 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought my drive in 2012. I upgraded the firmware several times and believe it had the latest (000f?). The drive failed on me yesterday. I rarely use the machine it was in. The drive was NOT detected by the BIOS and seemed to be completely gone.

I had to follow some weird instructions on the web to get it working again. Here's what worked for me:

Unplug all drives except the m4. Unplug the SATA cable from the m4, but leave the power connected to the SSD. Power on the computer and leave it on for 30 minutes. With computer still plugged in, plug in the SATA cable again. Hit restart on the front of the computer.

After this, the drive was luckily recognized again. Windows BSOD'd a few times and eventually after restore it came back. I no longer trust the drive and will be replacing it ASAP. Luckily, I did not lose any data. Avoid this drive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best smartphone I've used, July 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an excellent phone. It is well laid out and works well as both a phone and for smartphone features. Voice quality is very good. The manufacturer of this phone is making a comeback and look forward to their new Windows phone releases. Windows marketplace is good and growing. Reliable apps and certified so you aren't downloading potential malware. I was going to wait for the Windows phone 8, but glad I got this one in the meantime.

(Previous smartphones owned: blackberry and iphone 3G. Prefer this phone to both of them.)

1.0 out of 5 stars Goes on ERR all the time, June 20, 2012
It only worked for a day. Batteries were fresh alkaline batteries. It stopped working and stays in error mode. Nothing will take it out of error mode. It's not user error, it's broken and not a reliable product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not just a true cushioned shoe anymore?, June 2, 2012
As an under-pronator with high arches, I had high expectations for this shoe. I read the reviews and ignored some early reviews saying that the shoe felt firmer than prior models. That was a mistake.

The shoe is way too stable and not flexible enough. I feel they made the shoe more stable to market to "slight overpronators", which is a bigger market than the true cushioned shoe market for under-pronators. I'm disappointed in this shoe and feel it should be classified as "structured cushioning" by Asics instead of being placed in their cushioning category. Hopefully they will realize their mistake and make it more flexible in later versions.

I'll revisit this review later if the shoe breaks in better over time. For now, I'm not sure if this is the shoe for under-pronators. Asics makes great shoes. I love their Hyperspeed, Speedstars and Piranhas. Less cushioning, but at least they are flexible for my high arches. I bought the Cumulus for long runs but didn't expect this amount of rigidigity. It's a really firm shoe.

HALO SleepSack 100% Cotton Disney Wearable Blanket, Pink, Medium (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, bad painted zipper, May 28, 2012
The product worked well for a while. This one has the solid zipper without the eyelet ring. After some research, they changed the zipper and removed the eyelet because it got caught on at least one babies' tooth.

Although the zipper zips to the bottom, our baby can flip her legs and suck on the zipper. The problem is that the zipper is painted and we've noticed significant amount of paint has come off of it. The zipper should not be painted.

Better yet, the zipper should not even be exposed. The zipper seems strong and zippers rarely break, but I'd rather not take the risk. Babies constantly chew on things.

Now looking for a brand without exposed zippers, and preferably not painted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not made in Germany, December 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rosle Perforated Turner (Kitchen)
For the premium price and history of this company, I thought it was Made in Germany. It is not so I have returned it. Please put the country of Manufacturer for all cookware items.
