Andis 21485 Pro Pet Clipper Kit in Storage Case
Andis 21485 Pro Pet Clipper Kit in Storage Case
Price: $74.99
14 used & new from $74.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Blade changes and replacement...for dummies like me, May 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This Andis 21485 comes with a standard #10 blade. This is the "UltraEdge" blade from Andis. For alternative blades, you can buy any Andis blade that fits AG, AGC, BG, BGC, BGR, MBG or Oster brand A-5 products. Now, if you're a shear dummy like me... the question then becomes how do you switch out the blade? Unscrew the two screws? WRONG! The complete blade set hinges to the housing in back of where the two screws are placed. To switch out the blade set, FIRMLY pull away the set away from the housing from the front area. The only reason to remove the screws would be if fur is stuck within the blade set. The Andis website has more information about blade changes, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A serious workhorse, March 2, 2014
The Zoeller M98 1/2 horse is a solid and reliable piece of equipment. The types of pumps that are sold at big box hardware stores are literally a disaster waiting to happen. Don't trust the stuff in your basement to inferior equipment. The materials in this pump will allow it to sit in a moist environment without corrosion. And the float and switch are very well designed to lessen the chance of snags and malfunctions. I couldn't be happier.

2.0 out of 5 stars We got hosed!, December 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've purchased on Amazon since 1999 and this is the first purchase that I returned. As other reviewers say, the flow is restricted and the plastic fittings leak. The hose is only 5 feet so it's not going to reach an toddler or dog. Bad design all around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Z580 Packs Value and Performance, November 21, 2012
I've owned the Z580 for a few months and have found that this machine is a great value for it's performance level. The keyboard has a nice touch and feel and if you like having a numbers pad on the keyboard it's perfect(otherwise takes some getting used to). The cooling fan driver features a mode to clear dust (very useful) but otherwise operates super-quiet, nearly silent mode. The clear pluses on the value side are:

-- Intel Ivy Bridge Core i5 machine for a nice price
-- Classy look and feel; nice keyboard, lightweight and not a cheap setup
-- Energy saving features and 5-hour battery charge
-- Quiet and cool operation

The cons are:

-- Issues with LED backlite driver; it reverts to an energy saving mode when rebooted (no fix as of this writing)
-- Some sound features ("Dolby") but not as great as other laptops I've owned
-- Video playing sometimes needs tweaking to get the best picture and sound

I made this purchase hoping I would be invited to Indian lunches but I haven't got past the hot water part.

2.0 out of 5 stars "In Recovery" or is it still boozing?, April 11, 2012
This programmable thermostat is generally a good one -- does what you need it to do. But there will come a day that you see an "In Recovery" message and wonder if it has robbed the liquor cabinet! This model has "Smart Response" setting that I found to be quite annoying. What happens is the thermostat attempts to calculate the amount of time it will take to reach the temperature at the next time setting. So if you want 69 degrees at 7:00 and your room is 61 degrees, the heating system will turn on long before 7:00 such that the room reaches 69 at that time. Well, seems interesting -- but you might find your furnace on full blast at 5:45 instead of 7:00. The mode will read: "In Recovery"

There is a way to turn off this feature but you won't find instructions about this in the Operating Manual. Quite oddl;y the advanced instructions are in the "Quick Installation Guide"! User friendly? I guess that is a matter of personal opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Black Came Today, July 23, 2011

This review is from: Frank (Audio CD)
A powerful talent that burst out of an apparent insecure figure. We can only guess what held her back from taking charge but it's worth to take a pause now for the less talented who are challenged as well.

And shame on virtually every news outlet for the insensitive reporting of Amy's ultimate demise. Troubled, or normal without the tools to handle such talent?

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much of a "guarantee" at all!, February 12, 2011
I've used Turbo Tax Home & Business for years without any issues. I always thought their "100% Accuracy Guarantee" was meaningful. This year I was as careful as I've always been to ensure my source tax documents aggregated properly into my final return. I filed electronically when everything appeared perfect. Now in viewing a printed copy I see that some stock sales appearing as "Short Term" had purchase and sale dates greater than 12 months. In one case the Short Term transaction was greater than 13 years! Why should I need to review this kind of thing? I expected their error check to find this kind of basic problem. According to the Turbo Tax "guarantee", they will pay interest and penalties but not guarantee the product by refunding the purchase price. Live and learn, I guess. But since this kind of problem is a red flag, I probably should use a tax professional who would use more reliable software

5.0 out of 5 stars Garden all winter, December 17, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've purchased a similar mushroom log in the past. This one is much larger, producing a bounty of mushrooms very quickly. One recommendation: After the first step of submerging the log in water for about 10 hours, you may want to put it in the basement for a few days. There is a ripe, musty odor in the first few days. The mushrooms grew much faster than the instructions predicted. No odors after the first few days. For me, it was a good way to "garden" during a cold New England winter.
