3.0 out of 5 stars Less than great., April 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've used four other Bible covers, and this is the weakest of all, primarily because the cover is the kind o vinyl you would find on cheap auto seat covers. It fit my copy of the Qur'an quite nicely, but do not think this will hold the very big study Bibles from HarperCollins or Oxford. The construction seems sound, but note some other reviews which have issues with that. This might be good for a young person's first Bible.

3.0 out of 5 stars A poor, bare bones edition., March 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Romeo & Juliet (Kindle Edition)
This review review is directed entirely at the Kindle edition by an unknown publishing house, Waskeep Publishing. It's cover has a passing similarity to Penguin editions of Shakespeare's plays, but that is where the resemblance stops. The volume has NOTHING except the bare play, and an active table of contents. There is no introduction and there are no notes. Virtually every Shakespearean play by Penguin, Oxford, and Modern Library has all these things, plus line numbers to track lines across various printings. What is worse is that in some cases, the name to indicate who is speaking is ambiguous, as when it says "Friar". There are two friars in the play, Friar Lawrence and Friar John. You cannot tell the difference between the two, except when they first enter a scene. There is a much better Kindle edition as part of the Yale University editions of Shakespeare, with full annotations, an introductory essay, and a concluding essay by Harold Bloom. It also has the line numbers to compare editions. You will be much happier with that edition than this, which is, quite honestly, even hard to read, with its gaping empty spaces.

Here, gentle reader, Amazon seems to have mislead me by their picture, just as they did the last time. Both times, I was intent on matching the color, and I went on faith that the size matched the picture. It doesn't. It is shorter and deeper than the picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great substitution for Preparation H, March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As far as I can see, these wipes are identical in content and packaging as the Preparation H wipes they were marketed to imitate. That about covers it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Discuss this one with your cat. He may need some "help" in making it attractive., March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I need to be very careful with this review. I have six cats, and I give them all sorts of canned food, and they eat them all with relish. But, when I put this pate style of food in front of them, they don't touch it. That is, they don't touch it unless I slice it up into lots of slivers and chunks. Then, they scarf it down as quickly as the other styles of Fancy Feast.So, to that extent, it is a qualified hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Fast, very efficient. One reservation., March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love it for making a pot of tea. It is far superior to heating water on the stove or in the microwave, but I find that it may be "tricky" in that you have to use a certain amount of finess in making some types of tea, especially loose tea. The pot brings water to a boil, and one rarely boils tea. If I were to ask for one additional feature, it would be a "keep warm" setting. The hot tea cools off quickly, once the heating cycle is done. You need to get it into a vacuum carafe quickly, or you will be on your way to iced tea.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, one weakness., March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall, this is a great product, in concept and in execution. I just have two "quibbles". The adhesive supplied to mount the block on a surface is simply not strong enough to mount it on a vertical surface. I suggest you try either the Command adhesive strips, or 3M Velcro strips, which are strong enough to restrain an elephant (sic). My second quibble is that there are working outlets on all five sides, so to mount it, you need to block one of the working outlets. I suspect that's considered a feature, as it means whichever way you mount it, you have the same number of outlets. Aside from that, it's a great idea, if you can get it attached to something, near a chair, where you would be recharging computers and phones and the like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I've used, by far., March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is really great. I use it every day, and it is clearly superior to the type I get from CVS brands. It has far greater capacity, and, best of all, the spray, when pushed right, gives a fine mist, the kind you would expect from a good perfume mister, rather than a glob of drops. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does the job. "Pretty Good", March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This falls into the range of "pretty good". That means I think it could be better, and I suspect the lamps used by professional orchestras are better. This is clearly superior to the lamps with a single point source, and to those who have two necks and two bulbs. In case you didn't notice in the specs, it has two intensities. This makes little difference. I think this would make a really good lamp for reading in bed, if you clamp it to a clip board.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good, especially on second and third brews., March 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was apprehensive about getting this tea, based on some of the reviews which said it seemed without taste. I made the tea in a metal tea ball and an automatic hot water pitcher, and I found the taste quite good, as long as I didn't over cook it. In fact, I can confirm one reviewer's observation that when you brew the same leaves a second time, the taste is even better. Yes, and even for a third time. I suspect there is a lot ov variation in results depending on your brewing technique.

It's not "perfect" Oolong, but it's pretty good.
