5.0 out of 5 stars Great Traveling Laptop, August 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Arrived early - Works great - Terrific price - Best traveling computer especially if going out of the country.

If you travel and need Internet, email, write proposals, watch movies during layovers, have music collection and audio books - look no further - this is the computer. You will never worry if it is stolen, dropped, or overheats and burns up the motherboard. I've gone through 4 of them already. This is the fifth. I do my work in the Cloud so everything is saved and syncs to my primary laptop when I get home.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one to get ..., April 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This medical table is the only one that actually raises to 45". Terrific for those that are tall and want to work standing up with a laptop. I'm tall and returned others that claimed to raise over 40" but did not.

1) Stable - Looks nice, rolls well and is stable.

2) Weight bearing - 50 to 60 pounds over the support post. 25 pounds out on the far edge. I know what happened with the reviews that said it pulled out the "underneath" table screws. If you use the table to help pull yourself out of bed, you're going to put pressure down on the edge that extends over the bed. Mechanical leverage puts 3 times the pressure on the post end with the outer wood screws. A mere 65 pounds down pressure on the far edge equates to over 200 pounds on the post-end with the screws. A mechanically inclined person will understand. Don't use that far end to steady yourself.

3) Assembly: not bad at all if you follow just one rule:
a) DO NOT remove either the black screw on the black plastic band on the support post nor the silver screw directly below it. Simple. The rest of assembly is forgiving and redo-able if you make a mistake. Once assembled, take out the black screw and replace it with the packaged silver screw as described in the instructions. NEVER remove that silver screw that is directly below the black screw and the black plastic band.

4) Last thing: there are two locking washers that go on the #6 bolts that hold the table top to the support post. They go on the outside, upside down, between the bolt head and the silver support bar and they put pressure on the bolt when tightened. This keeps movement and gravity from working the bolts loose over time.

It's a great table. Price is right. You won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Planned Obsolescence, September 27, 2008
Here are two things Phillips will not tell you about their Sonicare toothbrushes and heads.

1) The collar that holds the toothbrush to the handle will disintegrate in a couple of months. That's what prompted this review, because they would not replace mine after it fell apart two weeks after purchasing a replacement.

They manufacturer these things to disintegrate so you will continue to buy replacements - planned obsolescence. However, I suspect their China supplier is skimping on the plastic specifications and they fall apart in weeks instead of months. (Do you think China would really do that?)

2) UNPLUG your base until you need to charge the toothbrush. If you charge it up overnight, then unplug the base, the toothbrush will work for four brushings per day for about a month. Then, when it signals or stops, plug the base in to charge it.

This method will allow your toothbrush to work for five years or longer. If you keep the base plugged in all the time, these NiCad batteries develop memory and will stop functioning after 18 to 24 months.

A bonus, if you travel a lot as I do, you don't have to pack the charger. Just make sure it's topped off and you're good for a month's vacation.
