Exactly as pictured and described. The stones themselves are good quality. Also the bowls and carrying case are of very good quality. I wanted a way to carry stones around without using a tupperware container or something and this exactly fit the bill. I'd recommend these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but only lasted about 3 years, October 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had this for about 3 years. It worked well enough - the only downside was you had to make sure the top was closed or else it didn't shut off. But then after about 3 years it broke and won't turn on any at all. We only used it a few times a week so that's kind of a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unlike any massager you've tried. This one really is very powerful and will get out your knots and tight shoulders., October 13, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 0:31 Mins

This is amazing. I'm used to vibrating massagers. They don't get very deep, and don't really relax knots. This is NOT a vibrating massager. It's called a "tapping" massager but it has a bunch of levels and can easily be called a "pounding" massager. I unzipped the case a bit to see the technology, and it has two solenoids with rounded pads on the end that really dig into those tight spots on your neck and back. If you don't know solenoids, take a look at the attached video (that's for solenoids in general, not for this product in particular).
If you have tightness / knots, this _will_ solve your problem. Very highly recommended.
The only downsides are (1) a slight plastic smell that doesn't completely go away. I'm pretty sensitive, and it doesn't bother me but is noticeable. (2) it shuts off automatically after repeated use so that it doesn't overheat, and you have to wait for it to cool down. However, I would buy it again in a minute.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but be sure to not touch the top of the DVD before printing, August 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hard to argue with these - I've burned about 150 of these with no issues. They write well and are read fine by different DVD players.

One thing to be aware of is that you need to be very careful not to touch the top of the DVD with your bare fingers before printing on it.
It leaves fingerprint oil on top of the DVD, and then the ink pools up on it and doesn't look very good.
At least this happens with my printer, an Epson Artisan 837.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't stay cold, doesn't last long. Don't waste your money., March 26, 2015
Not worth your time. These don't stay cold very long - certainly not the minimum 20 minutes that I need to keep it on. They don't last long. The goo starts leaking out after a few months. The goo is not very thick, so it doesn't stay cold evenly. The one good thing is the soft covering so that you don't need a separate washcloth or dishtowel or something between the cold pack and your body. However, that feature by itself isn't worth getting this cold compress. You would be much better off with the Chattnooga Colpac Cold Polyurethane, Black; http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001W3FXWY/

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome - don't waste your time looking at other brands - just get this!, March 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Stays cold for a long time - certainly over the 40 minutes that I'm using them. The gel inside is very pliable and doesn't shift around a lot, and the surface is great. They seem like they'll last a long time - it's the brand that my physical therapist used commercially. Can't recommend these highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, low distortion, very comfortable, March 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
OPTX 20/20 makes great glasses for a very good price. I have a bunch of them all over the house, and in the car. Recently I picked up a pair and noticed they were much more comfortable to put on, compared to the other ones I'd been using. It was these, the "beta" ones. The spring-loaded hinges means the arms flex out when you're putting them on, and feel nicer than the "OptxAlloy" that I had been getting. I'm sticking with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well - captures Macrovision-protected tapes, January 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I needed to archive a few VHS tapes that were protected with Macrovision. The tapes were getting old and dirty, and I wanted to be able to keep playing them. I was concerned about this product because it was cheap and the reviews were a little mixed. But I went ahead with it, and am very satisfied. I'm using it on a Windows 7 laptop with USB 3.0 ports, and haven't run into any of the problems that others reported.
I ignored the included DVD and just downloaded the latest drivers from diamond. I was hoping to avoid using their "ez-grabber" application, but a few video programs didn't recognize the capture device. EZ grabber works well; there's not a lot of documentation but it's pretty self-explanatory, and you can find a manual online. Works just like a VCR - press the record button to start recording. You probably want to go to setup (looks like a gear icon) and on the "record" tab, change the format to DVD for the best resolution.

I didn't try the included movie authoring program; I already have some video editing programs that can import the mpeg file that is captured.

Overall: very easy to use, captures fine, great value, works with Macrovision.

Tastes great. Doesn't have any plastic aftertaste. The packaging is easy to work with - the cap breaks a tamper-evident seal when you open it, and doesn't have any difficult liner etc.
