4.0 out of 5 stars It worked somehow, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This screen protector is not flimsy, sturdy and clear. So it's easy to pull it back if you aligned it wrongly with phone screen. It's good to have 6 of them, because you, probably, wont apply it without bubbles from the first try. Well, I couldn't, regardless of my skills and tools for cleaning and applying. The 4th attempt was more or less successful. Although there were couple bubbles left this screen protector lined up with Samsung GT-I9250. Nevertheless, there is no curving for camera as this picture shows, instead there is a hole for camera in this screen protector, but it matches, though, with camera position.
As for delivery, it took almost 2 weeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great so far, February 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's simple. You plug it to the wall, then to your cell phone with MICRO-USB port and it charges. I did not pay attention for how long till phone is fully charged, but I recalling that it took about an hour or so from 30 to 100%.
Worked well with Nokia 810.
Two month later: it still works.

5.0 out of 5 stars It worked for Honda CRV 2000., February 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It worked for Honda CRV 2000. It sits tight. The old one often triggered BRAKE light on dash board, especially when it's cold outside or so I thought. Unfortunately, replacing old cap with new one did not solve this BRAKE light on problem.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too many useless features, bulky, not Swiss quality, February 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First of all, there is no indications that it was Made in Switzerland. So I would not count on Swiss quality.
Pros: puncher punch
cutter cuts
(I did not try on real car glass or seat belt, though)
Cons: 1. It's practically impossible to pull safety bar away from cutter. And if you will, eventually, then in case of accident you'd be dead by that
time. I had to grind off the plastic knob, which holds this safety bar to make it work.
2. Alarm button. This is disaster! It can be pressed at with easy touch, which triggers alarm sound instantly and insanely loud. You have
to hold it for about 2 seconds to dis-alarm it. And pressing and holding this button did not even work every time. So if you put this as a
key chain in your pocket you better be ready for panic attack. I had to disassemble it and cut off speaker wires. Guess what, it would
still keep chirping, quietly though, but annoying enough. This is impossible, unless there is another speaker or microphone somewhere
on electric board. So I had to disconnect the alarm button to end this disaster.
3. Flash light button is easily to press on also. So, again, if it's in your pocket or purse it will be activated and waste all battery at the end
of the day.
4. Pressure Gauge. How many of us know what pressure is normal for your car tires in BARs of PSI? The port for valve is made flimsy
and you have to hold, according to manual, for 3 seconds. Because of small groove of this port it won't cover tire valve firmly and for 3
seconds you'll loose even more air in your tire.
5. Tire thread depth indicator. Unless you really concerned about this depth or you mechanic, I'm sure that most of us will never use this.

All these useless features make this device too bulky to have it in your pocket on your car ignition key along with alarm remote control. As for quality, as I already said, this is not from Switzerland, so I would not make hopes that it will last long.


Denix Left Handed Pirate Flintlock Blunderbuss Pistol, Antique Gray
Denix Left Handed Pirate Flintlock Blunderbuss Pistol, Antique Gray
Price: $47.80

5.0 out of 5 stars Looks real, October 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First of all, the Pistol looks pretty real unless you start to look at the details, like: barrel and other metal parts made out of 2 parts alloyed together. The pistol is heavy. the handle has a nice polished finish and feels great in my hand. The description says it's "left handled", but I had no problems to cock the trigger with one thumb of right hand. Besides, if you hold the pistol in right hand the smiling Rodger on handle will be visible. You can set and release the trigger, what adds some fun. The metal parts, looks like, made of duralumin, which is not bends but brakes under certain hit load.
All in all, the average price for good quality of replica pistols is about $40. For the less price you going to buy cheap toy with feeling of unsatisfactory.

3.0 out of 5 stars As same as at this, pirate arrr look, picture., September 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Price is Ok among others. But hat is big even for adult. The hat's fields are about 1.5-2 inches bigger than Captain Sparrow hat. I had to roll in all over perimeter these hat fields to make of it at least distantly residual look.
Material is not a leather but can hold the shape. There is thin metal cable stitched into the edge of hat. This is what allowed me to reshape it.
Hat does not look like a pirates' hats from movie POTC. It's Ok for Halloween but not for Jack Sparrow role. For that you might want to check an e-bay. They have, in range of $125-$225, most realistic look hats.


ATP HA-2  Carbon Activated Premium Cabin Air Filter

1.0 out of 5 stars Just another filter, September 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
"Carbon Activated Premium Air Filter" - sounds like a rocket science, when in fact, this is just a another regular cabin air filter. "Carbon Activated"?! - Please! Don't be fooled!
It's too expensive for just another filter. I bought it from AutoPartsZilla it came to 22.40, including delivery.
Amazon confirmed that this filter will fit to Honda CR-V 2000. Well, it fits by size, but Honda CR-V 2000 cabin air filter frame has 4 slits on opposite sides inside and this filter has no "rails" for those slits. I had to make cuts at the ends of filter to make it fit into CR-V filter frame at all.
Well, it's not biggie, does not require very much craft skills. The problem is that it did not eliminate smell. The smell went away a little for day, at first, (because it was brand new filter) then it came back.
Just because somebody sprinkled filter with carbon crumbs does not make this filter like a gas mask bad air stopper. But, hey, this was the purpose! If it does not eliminate a smell in that case I already had a filter for 7 bucks, recently replaced (3 times less). And yes - I vacuum cleaned the place where filter goes.
My point is - do not believe that "Carbon Activated" filter will solve bad air problem.
This filter is waste of money. There are much cheaper cabin air filters.
I had to sprinkle Clorox in intake ventilation from under the hood and leave car fan with heater running for 30-40 minutes with all door opened. This is helped for couple days. Then the old odor came back. I'm going to try "Clean Air Duct Freshner" AEROSOL now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Corel VideoStudio Pro x4 and ASUS Blu-Ray Writer BW-16D1HT, August 30, 2014
Great Blu-ray writer. I use for many years Corel Video Studio Pro X4, burnt a lot of DVD's (DL) including AVCHD with HP DVD burner. Recently I bought Pioneer 209d which "killed" 6 Blu-ray disks. It burns at first but then just freezes. I tried to updated Firmware, compile project in a single file and burn it again with Pro X4 but nothing helped. BD blanks was a were.wasted. I started to blame Corel VideoStudio for that, trying to find work around but then I got Asus BW-16D1ht and it burnt as it supposed to be at first time. I burnt 2 (the same) Sony BD 25Gb disks in a row with Asus BW-16D1ht (without any Firmware updates or work arounds) and damned Pioneer 209D 6 times for each wasted disk. Burnt Blu-ray disks were easily read with Aiseesoft Blu-ray Player software and with even old model of Sony BDP-N460. Main Title, menu and chapters worked flawlessly. Quality was great with average transfer rate of 14.5 Mbps. Blanks - Sony 10BNR25RNS. MAKE SURE THAT YOU BURN DISK AT 4X SPEED.

1.0 out of 5 stars Corel VideoStudio Pro and 209d, August 30, 2014
First off, Blu-ray is for movies, for storage you can use thumb stick or external HDD's which cost less and have huge capacity.

Pros. Windows 7 found it flawlessly.
You can read files from Blu-Ray. To play Blu-ray's I used Aiseesoft Blu-ray Player software.
It's quiet.
I burned DVD DL.

Cons. There is no official update on Pioneer web site for 209d
Nero 12 Essentials Burning Software (not expired trial version) is another joke since Nero 5.0. Nero 12 BD Player would not start, asks to update for money. I lost mountain of disks with Nero in a past. If you even will be able to write with Nero, the disks will be corrupted somehow in couple months (and I used many different DVD's including -R (+R), Verbatin, Sony, TDK, Memorex). I use for many years Corel Video Studio Pro X4, burnt a lot of DVD's (DL) including AVCHD with HP DVD burner. This Pioneer 209d killed 6 Blu-ray disks. It burns at first but then just freezes. I updated with http://www.firmwarehq.com/download_2124-file_BDR-209DBK_FW120EU.EXE.html Firmware update. It did not help. I compiled project in a single file and tried to burn it again with Pro X4 - another BD blank waste. I was blaming Corel VideoStudio for that, trying to find work around but then I got Asus BW-16D1ht and it burnt as it supposed to be at first time. I burnt 2 (the same) Sony BD 25Gb in a row with Asus BW-16D1ht (without any Firmware updates or work arounds) and damned Pioneer 209D 6 times for each wasted disk. Burnt Blu-ray disks were easily read with Aiseesoft Blu-ray Player software and with even old model of Sony BDP-N460. Main Title, menu and chapters worked flawlessly. Quality was great with average transfer rate of 16.5 Mbps. Blanks - Sony 10BNR25RNS. Just make sure to burn blanks at 4X speed.

I hope it will help someone.
