2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing quality issues., September 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was quite disappointed in these pants in two respects. First, the waistband is very prone to rolling over the top of a belt. Second, the fabric has pilled quite a bit. Taken together, these aren't suitable for anything more formal than yard work.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy, maybe a touch small, October 18, 2012
Nicely put together with sturdy construction.

I was a little surprised at the sizing. I'm 5' 10" and about 180lbs so pretty average male build and I found the large to be just barely big enough. My range of motion wasn't constrained but as soon as I started to move much the legs and sleeves would ride up a goodly amount. This was OK for my purposes but if you're going to be exposed to, e.g., fiberglass insulation, keep in mind you might end up with some itchy bands on your forearms and shins.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's decent, maybe not quite worth the cost depending on your use., October 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'd call it "drips less" rather than "dripless" as there are still some drips to contend with in my experience (although much less than with your typical gun).

The 18:1 ratio is great if you're working with thick or cold caulks, but with your run-of-the-mill caulk or sealants, you're trading an easier trigger squeeze for more frequent squeezing. I find it easier to lay down a long, consistent bead (e.g., 8' of baseboard to wall caulking) with guns that offer less mechanical advantage.

Last quibble is that there is no recess at the "nozzle" end of the gun to hold the caulk tube in place. Not normally a huge issue because the tube is pressed into place by the plunger but, at times, the tube can get jostled out of position.

Otherwise, pretty nicely put together, sturdy, the trigger's a good/comfortable shape. It has its place but there a probably better "compromise" guns for general painting/household use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice price. Light quality not quite there., August 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These bulbs are attractively priced. The light they cast has a noticeable red tone at the edges of the light pattern. For the price, I'm willing to live with it (I'm using these mostly as accent lights). If the lighting is going to feature prominently in your room though, I'd probably pass on these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time., August 19, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Two big issues with this thermometer:

1) It's not so accurate to begin with, and there doesn't seem to be any way to calibrate it. The thermometer that I received reads about 50* low. Ok, that's not so great, but on its own I could learn to deal with it.

2) It's really, really slow to respond to changes in temp. Using the Taylor alongside a known-to-be-accurate digital thermometer, the Taylor will "hang" at a given temp for as long as 30 minutes after the digital thermo has shown a change in temp. So - if I were going only by the Taylor, it could seem like my temp was holding at a steady 250* when it had actually spent the last half hour spiked up to 300*.

The large dial is nice, but the performance just isn't there.

3.0 out of 5 stars As of Nov. 2011, not the one you want for making a micro UDS, November 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is probably fine as a steamer, although the aluminum is very thin gauge. I'd be hesitant to use it for anything other than steaming/boiling -- I think it's so thin you'd have trouble with hot spots and scorching.

If, like me, you bought this with the idea of using it together with a Weber Smokey Joe to make a micro/mini ugly drum smoker, you will probably disappointed. As of November 2011, Amazon is selling the made in Colombia version, which is not the same diameter as the made in China version. As a result, it is not compatible with the Smokey Joe lid and won't work for that purpose.

3.0 out of 5 stars SHORT watchband, October 25, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a big fan of the watch itself, but it just barely fits around my (average-sized) wrist. The buckle is on the last hole of the strap, with barely enough strap left to slip into the "keeper". As a result, I'm wary of the buckle coming undone and the the watch falling off -- and the watch is so light, it's not as though I'd necessarily notice right when it fell off.

That said, for the price and style it's tough to beat. I might look for a replacement band, but the watch was so inexpensive itself that I'm hesitant to double the cost (or more!) by getting a new band.

This review is from: Medieval Castle Playhouse (Toy)
Title pretty much says it all -- kids thought it was awesome. Be forewarned, it took at least three adults to put it together (nothing too complicated, just big floppy pieces of cardboard to hold upright/align). It made it through the birthday party and for about a week after that...which I think is pretty good durability. Good stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars tough castle, October 25, 2011
= Durability:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:2.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We got the princess castle pinata for our daughter's sixth birthday party. If I were to describe the kids' reaction, it would be initial excitement, followed shortly after by frustration, followed by excitement at getting the candy.

As other reviewers note, this pinata is sturdy -- maybe too much so. It survived a good dozen or more whacks from the kids (using a heavy, hard wood dowel, too!), only surrendering the candy within after a few whacks from the parents.
