3.0 out of 5 stars didn't work the first 4 times) Like I said, October 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It works SOMETIMES, setting up was tricky (following the directions step by step, didn't work the first 4 times) Like I said, I don't know if it is the buttons, or device, but it seems to take a few tries to get it do what you want. But it was cheap, so, it is what it is...

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is great, but I will warn anyone it might take about 2 - 3 ruined or half cooked batches of popcorn to get the timing right for your microwave.
For comparison, my 1200 watt with some Popcorn oil on the 1/3 cup of Kernels is 2:05 .... anymore and it burns, any less and there are way too many unpopped.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fits some rather large plastic lunch accessories we own from Tupperware. The base is larger than the top, so its sorta shaped like a slight cone (if that makes sense) the base is great for separating cold or items that might get messy. It cleaned up well the one time it got peanut butter all over it.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like multiplayer, its here, October 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I almost went with 4 stars because it's so darn addictive. If you like multiplayer, its here, if you like single player or team ups with friends (3 of them for most things) its here.
The loot search is addictive, diablo ish.

Can't wait to play again tonight....

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The game is easy to pick up by my 5 year old. The rules are simple, almost too simple. We have made a few "house rules" to make it play a little better. But the base board and pieces are well made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of Skillets, October 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As pots and pans go, these are top notch. I think they are actually a little TOO non-stick. They have nearly 0 friction, but cook evenly and wash up easy.

These are what they are... great cake toppers given the lack of party goods out there for Skylanders.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun game, but the implementation and marketing is terrible..., October 7, 2014
Don't get me wrong, I like the game. Its fun to play, but given the way it is sold I think they really need to revamp the "compatibility" of this games engine and or decisions they made for the overall functionality.
The game has the Toy Box, which is universal and every last figure ever made thus far works there. Ok, great, but its not as large or expansive as the playsets and story free for the most part. The PLAYSETS only allow a set group of figures to work in them, which I find, in a second attempt at this game, appalling. Having played all 3 sets that were released in this wave of 2.0, there is absolutely no "technical" reason to limit the ability of these figures to work in any of the 3 sets. So what if cut scenes are missing Donald duck if you happen to be using Donald duck. The characters (except the cars, and even them with some tweaking) would all work in any playset and its absolutely stupid to not allow them somehow (After all they know they can with the crossover characters, but even those are limited??!?)
Come on Disney, you want to market a figure based game, give me a figure based game I can truly use them in other than your putsy 5 minute load time for 5 minutes of game play toy box junk...
Also, the 1.0 playsets (Still being sold right next to 2.0) don't work and takes a keen eye to realize this is pure stupidity. They should have been re-done for 2.0. Or they need to change the way they are marketing this game and releasing it in the future. Skylanders did something similar with Swap Force when they quietly made their "extra levels" just a 5 second power boost figure instead. Disney could at least of had the decency to carry over their 1.0 playsets into 2.0 at least once, especially given 2 platforms didn't even have 1.0 so can't use them no matter what...(PS4, XB1)

2.0 out of 5 stars It is terrible for gaming, September 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had this monitor for all of 2 days. It is terrible for gaming. I played Wildstar, Wow, Wolfenstien and Crisis on it. Setting everything for testing down to lowest detail, I still had MAJOR ghosting especially noticeable when large dark colored objects are on the screen. For graphics work, I tested 3D studio MAX and had the same issue when moving them around.
