3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book, but if you're taking a welding class...., April 11, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Interesting book, lots of information of different methods of welding. But.....

For those talking Welding 160 (Prof Roberts), I advise you to avoid buying this book because it is missing a chapter called "Thermal Cutting" which is part of a homework assignment and that chapter is removed from this updated book.

Great product, not only are these required in some gun ranges, it can also be used to release your mags on your "bullet button" equipped AR-15 and press stubborn take-down pins.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fitment issues on 95 Civic SI., March 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You're better off buying Magnaflow's universal catalytic converter and get it welded on the existing flanges at a much lower price than buying this. This is NOT a direct fit and I traveled all around town for specific bolt sizes and they still ended up having fitment issues. Do your self a favor and avoid buying this one.

I provided a picture to show the difference between the Aftermarket and OEM looks like. The aftermarket one has free-moving flanges and the flange that mounts from the cat to the header leaves a huge gap which require a longer bolt. The problem is these bolts are special spring bolts which you can't find easily at a local hardware store. The OEM spec spring bolts aren't long enough to catch thread.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a tank!, March 31, 2014
I just bought him a few weeks ago as an addition to my defender deck. It is quite a nice blocker, and is my only possible attacker that I could put out as an option. I love cards that are super beefy and this card as well as my Tree of Redemption are my strongest blockers in my defender deck. Most of my defender creatures can produce mana so being able to cast this card with its monstrosity is highly possible.
I'd give this card a 10/10, by far one of my favorite defenders in the game!

Check out my defender deck at MTGVault website. Search "Szetoa's Defender Deck"

5.0 out of 5 stars Great smartphone for under $100, March 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got my Fusion 2 in the mail on March 6, 2013 and so far so good. I already had a phone plan from AT&T so I popped my old SIM card in there and it works just fine! I don't have a data plan so I simply turned off data usage in the settings. The WiFi is great, I didn't experience any disconnections like other reviewers pointed out. I was also able to root the phone successfully so I can uninstall the preloaded bloatware that you can't delete unless you root the phone. Overall, this phone offers a great value for under 100 dollars. Also this phone uses Android version 2.3.6 (Gingerbread)and cannot be updated any further.

Pro : Under 100 dollars, WI-FI Capability, Micro SD expansion slot, decent battery life.

Con : Camera quality is pretty bad, keypad buttons are pretty close due to the size of the screen, ram capacity is a bit low (but what do you expect from an entry level smartphone?)

NOTE : If AT&T is going to charge me for a data plan, I will call back and ask that I didn't sign up for a plan and they should data block me. If all else fails, I can just go back to my old phone and pop an unactivated SIM card in this one and treat it like a 70 dollar Ipod touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, my first Nvidia card!, September 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Prior to owning this, I had a HD 5XXX series, decent card to play games at medium settings, but I waited for the right moment to pick up a better graphics card that comes with a game that I intend to play. Luckily I waited when Borderlands 2 is included with the purchase. I got the 660 TI because I know later down the line if games get power hungry, I can run dual SLI, or even 3 way SLI and not worry much for quite some time. At the moment a single 660 TI can run the following games I own at the maximum settings on stock clock speeds.

Borderlands 2
Modern Warfare 3
Battlefield 3
Saints Row the Third
Battlefield Bad Company 2
Other old titled games on steam.

Here are the pro's and cons about the product.

PRO : Fast, runs cool, 3 way SLI support, Borderlands 2 free.
CON : No SLI adapter, it would be nice if they included it.

So far the best bang for the buck, and with borderlands 2 coming with it for free it was like shaving 50 bucks off the gpu.


AmazonBasics Wired Keyboard
AmazonBasics Wired Keyboard
Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, September 13, 2012
I just got the keyboard today 9/13/2012, and it plugs and plays immediately. The features this keyboard has is being able to control the volume, they have buttons to start up calculator, my computer, and windows media player. As another reviewer stated, the keyboard has a fixed tilt angle, which I don't mind at all because I never use the keyboard if is not angled. The angle isn't very high so it's not too bad. The buttons feel pretty good, they feel kind of similar to a laptop keyboard.

Here are the Pros/ Cons of the keyboard.

Pro: Being that this is an AmazonBasics product, you don't have to worry about being left out on the 1 year warranty as Amazon's customer service is outstanding. I'm sure if the product malfunctions during the year of purchase (hopefully it won't) Amazon will be happy to help you out. The price makes this keyboard the bang for the buck. It has more features than a cheap OEM style keyboard.

Con: Can't really think of any since I just got it, But I'll keep the review updated until the warranty on the product expires.

Conclustion: Great keyboard at the right price, look no further, unless you find a black friday style deal on a nice keyboard.

5.0 out of 5 stars You can't find a $800 laptop with the same specs as this laptop., August 29, 2012
****UPDATE***** I found out why this computer takes a while to connect to the internet. Apparently the Mcafee anti-virus program trial is the culprit. After the trial ended, I immediately uninstalled it and installed the free Avast program and this computer connects to the internet quickly. Shame on Mcafee.

This lenovo y580 is one of the entry models of the y580 series. This one does not have 1080p, blue ray, or a solid state drive. With that said, I knew that before buying this laptop. I don't own blue ray movies and don't care much for 1080p screen so I went for this laptop anyway. This laptop is amazing for the price. I paid $799.99 for it and for a laptop with one of the latest high end i7 ivy bridge processors equipped with a Nvidia GTX 660, there's nothing out there that can beat it. I've searched for a laptop for months and I have yet to see a laptop with the same processor and dedicated graphics for $800. This laptop can run battlefield on high settings without any hickups. If you plan to buy this laptop, I highly recommend installing a solid state drive if you want everything to load faster.

Here are the pros and cons about this laptop.

Pros: Powerful CPU, dedicated GPU, light up keyboard, JBL SPEAKERS, price, and 5 hour battery life (pretty good for a high performance computer).

Cons: Touchpad can get annoying (luckily you can disable it and use a mouse), Wireless card seems to delay connecting to the internet upon startup , and slow HDD.
