1.0 out of 5 stars Great idea but not a great flashligt, ligt emits green rings, April 30, 2014
Nice idea or concept for a flashlight. Got one as a gift, installed batteries, but the light it emits shows several green rings. Great idea to say 20 lumen brightness, but doesn't work. You can tell, made in China, not the quality a customer will expect from Stanley Black and Decker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relatively painless to true painless, will highly recommend, December 24, 2013
I bought this device and its lancets. I've been using the Delica lancing device/lancets for a couple of months. It really does not hurt me on a setting of three, and it gets enough blood for my test strips. As another reviewer wrote,This may be the first testing device that is actually painless or at the very least close to painless.

Some reviewers complain in not getting enough blood. I will say that after firing the device, you may not notice that it puncture the skin, but wait, don't fire again. The blood drop will come three to five seconds later, and is enough for the meter.

Previously I used regular lancet devices and they hurt, plus the lancet seem to go too dip in my fingers. The One Touch is almost pain free, and gets the right amount of blood for me.

I am also very happy with the One Touch device and the computer program that allows to log and monitor the resuls. Plus you can print the chart and take to the doctor. One thing I don't like is that the font size is very small and somewhat harder to read, even with the light on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, easy to use, but hard to read, June 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very good product, easy to use, the Delica lancet device is almost pain free, all that very good. Meter keeps track of date, times and even statistics. All these a big PLUS

Gave only four stars because the meter display of statistics, before and after meal flags and other setup information is in small size letters that could be hard to read for the elderly. You may need a magnifying glass. Wish they use a better kind of display, or larger font, or at least bold size letters. That's my CON and the reason for four stars. The meter displays results in large numbers, that's the only large display.

Suggest next version will talk, to help setup the flags by announcing flag choises, and maybe use a better display for more clear, easy, larger reading.

1.0 out of 5 stars Highlight keywords recognition very poor accuracy, June 1, 2012
I bought this scanner encouraged by very enthusiastic reviews here on Amazon. On the basis of my first months of using this scanner every few days, I would agree with many reviewers that it is an excellent scanner, I will probably give a rating of 4 or 5, ...but will give only a 1 to alert other reviewers that the part of highlight keywords and keyword recognition works very bad. Picks a lot of garbage, is basically useless.

I'm glad that so many people have had nothing but good results with this product, but I am not among them because of this keyword recognition.

I ordered the product from Amazon, it arrived promptly and in fine condition. So I have no beef with Amazon.

I contacted the Fujitsu customer support, (very nice, prompt response) they instructed to reinstall the ABBYY software, it improved a little bit, but still picks a lot of garbage and is basically useless. They say isn't perfect. I will say worthless. I am wondering why other people don't comment about this. Sounds like such a great feature.

Yes, you can drag and move files into directories, force or assign keywords, but the keyword recognition of highlighted words is pretty bad.

So buyers be aware.

And if it works for someone, please tell me what you do. Please comment or give suggestions at Amazon's ScanSnap S1500 discussions. (Check post :Keywords accuracy with highlighter)

One last thing, the instruction book is very small and limited, they sort of depend on you watching a lot of YouTube videos to learn how to use the ScanSnap unit. Is a great unit, do a lot of things, but takes time for you to learn/figure out how to use it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good and bad, be aware, read reviews carefully, February 10, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good, easy to use, somewhat hard to get the caps on, but at the end you can easily dispose of these disposable Kups after using. (Review update - More than somewhat, hard and tricky to get the cap on.)

Good that you can use your own coffee. Fresh coffees. I personally like coffees from Spain, Puerto Rico and other countries.

The bad, sometimes is messy. Coffee grinds seem to leak, creating a slight mess and the need to clean the machine. This leak is more in the area of the cups lid and cup. And some times these grinds even get in your cup of coffee. Just read other reviews about this. Not sure if it could be related to how fine are the grinds of coffee. (Review update - The plastic of these cups tends to melt/soften/deform more easily than the Keurig coffee cups, maybe that's why they tend to leak more easily.)

On the other hand, with disposable cups you don't need to keep cleaning wire filter baskets. That's a very plus.

All considered will probably buy again, but wish a better lid/cup seal that will not leak. Hope down the road they will offer improved DisposableKups. (Review update - No, will not buy, there are other choices that worked better. Some use more durable cups and paper filters that seal much better.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Important installation instruction., August 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The installation is very easy. If you are replacing an existing unit, just two screws to remove the old unit out and install the new one in. Watch the connector, it plugs just one way in, there is some kind of notch or guide.

But instructions with the unit are very poor. It doesn't mention that one of the cables to plug have some kind of temperature sensor that needs to fit into a clip on the underside of the unit.

Without that part fitted there, the unit may not work. !!!!!!!!!!

And again the instructions didn't cover that.

On the other hand, one good thing, you can adjust the amount of water that goes in to make the ice cubes.

It came with all the parts needed, including a mounting plate that helps fit the unit to older refrigerators where the mounting screws maybe at a different location.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great coffee but leaks, June 4, 2011
I got this a couple of months ago, brewing coffee is fast and convenient. Taste very good. But works in a strange way, once the water goes down into the brewing chamber, some of the water seems to leak into the bottom try. How or why, still don't known. Next time will try a different model.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, very easy to use., May 6, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great product, very easy to use, simple to operate, very quick, makes very good coffee, is small, doesn't take a lot of counter space.

Specially in the morning, if you don't have much time to make breakfast, here is a quick way to get a fresh cup of coffee.

Only wish they had Spanish, Puerto Rican, Italian coffee K-cups available. Those are strong good coffees. But still, you can use your own favorite coffees.

5.0 out of 5 stars For me is better than the 432, May 6, 2011
Tried many types and brands and this is the best. I have used this model for years. For me is better than the 432. If I was to make any change, will use a broader support in the forehead, rather than a single point support for the mask. But that's only a suggestion. Will not change this one for any of the other types, even if they have the broader support. Easy to clean, is very easy to get on and off, and easy to release. No need to keep adjusting every night. Just snap the clip.

I think is also good for active sleepers that move a lot and breath/open mouth sleepers. no need for chinstraps. Maybe suggest add snuggle straps if you notice any marks in your face. Also suggest use the hose quick connects and or swivel hose adapters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read time., April 15, 2011
Pros - very easy to read the time or see the needles.

Cons - the wrist band can only be adjusted by taking on full link in or out. There is no room for in between or minor changes, thus it could feel too loose or too tight.
