Don Matteo - Set 8
DVD ~ Terence Hill
Offered by MightySilver
Price: $34.21

1.0 out of 5 stars Set 8, NOT season 8. Should be made clearer by the sellers., February 17, 2015
This review is from: Don Matteo - Set 8 (DVD)
Like the show, but you need to know that this is not season 8. Was trying to buy it, because season 8 is not available via streaming in the US.

3.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much as expected., October 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Light Up Bow Tie
Looks good, and the three different settings (on, slow flash, quick flash) are nice. And it served its purpose as a fun gift. The battery pack and extended cord is annoying, but I guess necessary if you are going to use AA batteries. There is a distinct hum that one can hear when the light is on...nothing terrible, but noticeable.

New Balance Men's M890 Neutral Light Running Shoe,Black/Yellow,7.5 2E US

5.0 out of 5 stars Not small but different feel than other NBs, September 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I first put them on, they felt more snug than other 7.5 EE from New Balance (my go to brand for running shoes for 20+ years). But with my first run, it was more like they provided better 360 support and it was a question of getting used to a different feel. Cushioning was great as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars 6 months old and 3 of 3 batteries are useless, November 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought these as replacement batteries for three uniden phones on the same line. The original batteries lasted almost 5 years before being reduced to about a 15 minute charge. These replacements are all at the point where they cannot hold a charge for more than 15 minutes. Nothing else has changed. I cannot believe these came from the same source as the originals.

Epson Perfection V600 Color Photo, Image, Film, Negative & Document Scanner

5.0 out of 5 stars Great scans. Slides and film also work well., November 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought this to replace an old HP Scanjet 5530 (last supported by HP in Windows XP...using Vuescan). Have been very happy with the quality of the scans of old photographs. Quick start and relatively quiet. Have used both the included Epson scanning software and Vuescan. Both work well with the hardware. Digital Ice available for both negatives/slides and photos (unlike v500 where only available for negatives/slides), but it's effectiveness varies. For instance, it makes a total mess of any photo with a textured finish.
Negative/slide scans work pretty well. Obviously not designed for mass production, but have done a fair number of slides 4 at a time. Works best if you invest the time to learn how to automate the process so you can do other things while scanning. Quality of both negatives and slides has been good as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars First pair of New Balance shoes that are just "meh", September 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought these to replace a pair of New Balance 890 v2s ... which I really, really liked (my size for any 890 was not available via Amazon). I was disappointed in the following 1) tongue is too long for my taste. It is annoying if you use short socks. 2) lacing comes up either too high or too low (if you go down a space 3) they are kind of floppy. Not sure how to explain it, but even when tightened some, the seem to slap down to the road when running. I have only worn New Balance for the past 5 years...and this is the first pair where I am disappointed. I run about 20 miles/week on average. Running shoe opinions are ultimately pretty subjective, which is why I am comparing them to other shoes that worked well for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failure rate is ridiculously high, Returns are a hassle, July 22, 2013
Because you want your battery-powered tools to run off of the same batteries, choosing a line is a big deal (that's why companies always have great deals on multi-tool kits). The Ryobi tools--although not pro-level by any means, have been adequate for me, a weekend project warrior. Unfortunately, the batteries have not proven to be as solid as the tools. I have7 Ryobi lithium-ion batteries purchased over the past 4 years and 5 of the 7 are no good. (1 of the 5 takes a charge and dies after several minutes), the others have all ceased to take a charge.). None of these batteries were abused, and none of them received more than 20-25 hours worth of use. When I asked about returning them, Ryobi first directed me to Home Depot. Home Depot then directed me back to Ryobi who then directed me to a dealer. With a failure rate this high, I'm thinking of just putting the tools on Craig's List and moving to a different brand.


Seiko Men's SKP333 Dress Black Leather Strap Watch
Seiko Men's SKP333 Dress Black Leather Strap Watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Understated and elegant, June 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wanted a watch for work that was slim, looked good, and understated without spending a lot of money. Spent about 2 hours looking at different watches on Amazon. This one seemed to be a good choice, and upon arrival, it was exactly what I had hoped. As other reviews mention, there are subtle hour markers that are only visible in certain directions. Date is a little small, but that's more an issue of my eyesight than the watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Value, June 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wanted to replace the wash clothes at home in one fell swoop. Local stores were looking for $6 up per wash cloth. Ordered these based on other reviews, and was very happy with them. They are not the most luxurious. But, they are very nice. Thick enough, nicely stitched, and everything you need in a day to day wash cloth. They have held up to washings so far as well. I will be keeping my eyes open on Martex products in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfort and style, June 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted a shoe that had classic Oxford lines, but with the comfort of Rockport so I could wear them all day, every day. This shoe fit the bill. Nicely contoured and extremely comfortable. The only minor complaint is that on one side, you can see a little white between the upper part of sole. It is not noticeable except when polishing the shoe (hence still 5 stars).
