3.0 out of 5 stars Everything I hoped it would be -- until it broke, July 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Hose and fittings are high-quality. Hose is very resistant to twisting, as well as kinking. It is lighter and much easier to move from plant to plant while uncoiled. Coiling it up or flaking it out on the ground require some attention as the hose will not lie flat if there is a twist in the line. The spiral winding on the hose appears to be strong and durable. Expect to get several years of life from this item. -- Update 9/6/13. Well, it lasted almost 3 months before the end fitting has separated from the hose. There is some kind of bonding problem with the hose to the brass alloy fitting that gives out after a while. This is exactly what the lower reviewers had warned about. Hose is absolutely the best for easy handling and watering plants. Will attempt to make repairs myself. I can probably do better with KB Weld epoxy than the factory did on this. -- Update 4/14/14/. Seven months ago I replaced the metal alloy fitting with a black plastic quick-disconnect fitting and used 5-minute epoxy to glue it. Hose is holding up well and I am very happy with the result. The factory should add expoxy to their production process instead of relying purely on mechanical crimping alone. If you are willing to make this repair yourself when the day comes, I would recommend you consider this hose for its light weight and true anti-kinking performance.

1.0 out of 5 stars No quality control at ZAGG, July 14, 2013
Zagg Invisibleshield has become crap. They were good about 5 years ago, but I have gotten deteriorating results since 2008. Shields come pre-streaked, pre-scratched, pre-wrinkled, and pre-dented from the factory so they won't lie flat and has an irregular appearance. When you place the iPhone 5 shield on your phone you realize the template they used is not even symmetrical. If you line up the home button and ear phone hole in the center of their cutouts, the film is not centered on the phone. The rubber squeegee provided is cut with a rough edge (looks more torn than cut) that scratches the film when used. Wish I could add a photo.

Really livens up the back patio. Neutral straw color and teak wood matches any color home or patio furniture style. Fun to watch it flutter in the breeze. Perfect size and height. Have ordered a spare just in case they stop being made in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fragile wing, April 20, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hobby Zone Champ Champ RTF (Toy)
This is a complete ultra-lightweight kit that is good for starting and has a long battery life, but every crash will break its fragile, unreinforced, paper-thin styrofoam wing. The wing is mounted with double-sided tape that is stronger than the styrofoam, so replacing the wing requires patience and skill with an X-acto knife to carve the remnants of the previous wing away. A more durable plastic wing mounted with rubber bands would be superior. Also, there are now beginner R/C airplanes that have computer stabilization built in. I would recommend such an alternative as a first airplane over this one.

Son loves this title and begs to play it. Decent graphics. No gore. Still lots of life left in this game station.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice accent pieces all by themselves, April 20, 2013

Bought three sets of these in anticipation of needing them for more books and are displaying them in pairs atop the book cases without books for now, and they look great. Very substantial and of solid quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent polycarbonate "glassware," but beware of different sizes, April 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These glasses are crystal clear and dishwasher safe. They stack decently in the cupboard and are safe to use around a pool or children. They are polycarbonate, which is what motorcycle windshields and helmet face shields are made from. It is tougher and a more flexible than acrylic (you can squeeze theme a bit out of round in your hands). Our previous set was acrylic, which is more brittle and they all eventually developed cracks from the temperature cycles of the dishwasher. Look forward to several years of use. ToysNGamesEtc on Amazon sold us 18 oz glasses (20 oz to the rim). When I went back to Amazon to order more because we were so pleased, I bought them from Wind River, but received 14 oz glasses (16 oz to the rim). The Amazon.com item description for both was identical and the capacity was not mentioned. Amazon needs to fix its descriptions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dies after 18 mos, whether you use it or not, March 27, 2013
Only used about once a week, but it just completely died 18 months after purchase. I probably got 100 cups of coffee out of it, so it cost me $1.29 a cup for my hot water. Generally a challenge to keep it functioning if not using everyday as it gets vapor locked and otherwise confused. Last time I tried to use it the display showed that the machine was stuck in a menu mode. I finally got a cup of coffee out of it, but sure enough, this morning the display is completely dead and won't come back even after all the exhaustive troubleshooting steps of cycling the power plug and water tank, etc.. The machine is brain dead. Made in China. They have apparently perfected the art of having stuff die just outside of warranty. BTW, Keurig customer service told me the reason the computer died was because I didn't descale the coffee maker with white vinegar. By that logic, my laptop screen might fail if I don't dust my keyboard. So be warned that not only don't they stand behind their product, but they also try to deceive the gullible customer with a false argument that deflects blame. No more Keurig hardware for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect light for typing in the dark, January 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very compact and clever folding for easy storage. Not too bright but bright enough to see keys and read an adjacent paper if positioned to one side. No switch, but unplugging is not too much to ask. Wish silver cover was a bit more opaque as it lets a little light through.
