1.0 out of 5 stars Returned as Defective but had several good features. Do NOT be like me; READ reviews before buying!, August 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have no idea how the image was taken for the advertisement! The screen on the phone that I received was NO WHERE as sharp and clear. It was difficult to impossible to see in normal room light, in the middle of a sunny day. Admittedly, my den is not extremely bright, but it is ridiculous to need to turn on a room light or use a flash light to see the screen on the phone. IN SHORT - the photo in the ad is VERY misleading. When I tried increasing the contrast on the screen, all that happened was that the "hidden" "unused" numerals and characters became visible, INSTEAD of increasing the visibility of what I wanted and needed to see. Please see attached photos. I must admit to NOT having read reviews before buying this phone. Before I find a replacement, I will do research. The need for batteries/absence of an AC adapter is surprising and disappointing although not a fatal flaw by itself. Whatever I do buy to replace this phone will have a well lit screen and an AC adapter.

On the positive side - this phone offers perhaps the best call log facility I have ever seen in a telephone. Unlike other phones that I have, the call log was very easy to access and provided very clear and concise information. Apparently, the phone is well engineered for the hearing impaired (as I am). The few calls I had on this phone were clear and easy to understand. However, I did notice that the phone amplified the room air conditioner I have in my den. NOTE: I did NOT try the "audio assist" feature. In retrospect, I am wondering if it was turned ON and that is why the air conditioner was amplified?

5.0 out of 5 stars It BLEW ME AWAY!, July 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Very Best of (Audio CD)
I was somewhat familiar with this group before I listened to this entire album on an American Airlines transatlantic flight. It BLEW ME AWAY! Musically, the harmonies and instrumental arrangements were nothing short of wonderful. While I loved, and purchased the CD through Amazon.com upon returning home, one track, in particular really does something for me and to me. The song "Hallelujah, written by Leonard Cohen, is one of those enigmatic songs that is far beyond my comprehension. BUT, there is something to the Gestalt of the piece, the rhythm, timing, something indefinable that reaches deep into my soul. Perhaps because the first time I ever heard it was on an episode of the Scrubs TV series. The song was played upon the passage of a beloved nurse character. While there are several performances of the song available, to my ears and soul, THIS ONE is the BEST ... PERIOD! While the entire CD is magnificent, it is worth the price for this one track!

I far prefer the new, all inclusive, edition. This edition is aimed at my parents' generation (I am 68). I believe that ALL humans are equal, male and female, all colors, all ethnicities, all "orientations."

A High Holiday prayer book for MODERN people. All inclusive. Probably heretical to the ultra-Orthodox. Want a prayer book to which YOU can relate? This is it! Excellent quotations and meditations from various authors.

Good design and very usable. Bluerigger cables appear to be somewhat stronger. BUT, these usually do not get much movement or stress.

In my opinion, one of the best books describing the process, debates, reasoning, logic and needs of the 13 colonies when forming our country. Well written. Easy to read.
