1.0 out of 5 stars Buy the cheaper one instead!, March 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Looks nothing like the picture, looks exactly like the one that is less $$$. I chose this one because it looks like the original but did not get what I expected.

1.0 out of 5 stars Forget the USB ports!, June 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a good modem and a good router but I really bought it to use the USB ports for networked hard drives and that is the part that does not work. I have one 1 TB drive that works on the USB ports and my flash drives work ok, nothing else. Netgear's tech support is useless, they keep spouting canned responses about my ISP changing the firmware (not likely since I changed the admin password before putting it online) and if that were the case then the 1 TB drive should not work either.

Netgear has a list of compatible hard drives but it is very old and does not even list this router. If you want a modem/router there are other options: if you want network storage look elsewhere!

4.0 out of 5 stars It fits., March 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This cover fits the Miix 2 and doesn't cover *any* of the screen. I would prefer that it didn't contain any leather products at all.

This tool is much thicker than I expected. It is made to last and works well for its purpose. Gotta' keep those rotors true to within 0.003"! ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars Almost there..., August 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The shorts fit well and are really good to ride in, the right amount of stretch. I rode in them in rain and after riding 20 minutes when the rain stopped the shorts were almost dry. The pockets are placed well and are deep enough. The liner is long and the elastic leg bands leave funny looking stripes on my legs but maybe they all do that. The liner is nicely padded and good for long rides.

The shorts have tan zippers rather than the black ones pictured. They are more understated that way but either way would be fine by me. The instructions mention to keep velcro away from the shorts but the waistband closure is velcro! Just be careful to keep the velcro closed when not wearing the shorts so it can't grab the fabric.

Why 4 stars? The little tag by the right leg that reads "Zoic" is made from a scratchy material (melted plastic) where it is trimmed. The scratchiness gets annoying after awhile. My gray shorts are much better although they have the same tag. I gave these four stars since I had to remove the tag myself.

The thickness is as close to specification as I can measure and it works as expected but how can I give a piece of shim stock five stars? :)

Niagara cutting tools just work better than the imports. The price is a little higher but the finish and accuracy are worth it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not made in USA, March 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This kind of file is difficult to find locally, most stores only carry the more common shapes. It works well and avoids the sharp corners of typical files. I kind of expected a Simonds file to be made in USA but I guess not much is anymore.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good Luck Drilling Straight Holes, January 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Or more accurately, good luck drilling holes perpendicular to the workpiece. The tool is held way off plumb from the base plate, a few degrees front to back and almost as much side to side. There is no adjustment for front to back. It's a shame, the actual construction and operation of the tool is pretty good but if it can't drill straight it does not meet the primary purpose. Maybe Dremel will correct these issues one day and make this worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars It Works!, January 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product does just what it claims! It holds things on a shelf without marking or mess. It is difficult to praise a piece of rubber (or whatever it is) but it really works!
