2.0 out of 5 stars Good floss ruined by a terrible case, October 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I actually like the floss quite a bit. But the case it comes in is terrible enough that it ruins the product for me. When the metal piece that cuts the floss doesn't fall out and onto the floor then it just ends up failing to cleanly cut the floss. I'm quite tired of dealing with this twice a day and will be glad when it's all gone.

I actually decided to try Sriracha after I watched this. Give this video (and Sriracha) a try!

2.0 out of 5 stars You might not want your kids to watch it, August 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pom Poko (Blu-ray + DVD) (Blu-ray)
Ok, so the weirdest thing about this movie is that the male raccoons have visible scrotums. Oh, actually the weirdest thing is that the males can expand their scrotums as part of their transformations and make things like rugs, sails, balloons, etc. Um... yeah... maybe this movie is just not not really something for the American market!

But that's not the only reason why I rated it just two stars. The story just isn't that great. It seems very disjointed and doesn't have a satisfying end. Better to just watch another movie instead!

3.0 out of 5 stars and for those of us who enjoyed Katy's "All of Me" movie it's nothing like that, August 8, 2015

It's no substitute for actually going to a concert, and for those of us who enjoyed Katy's "All of Me" movie it's nothing like that. But for a true Katy fan it's something to watch.

1.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't fit right no matter how much you try., May 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I knew that this product wasn't intended to cover the entire display. So my complaint isn't about that.. The problem is that there is no way to put this protector onto the display and not have part of it sticking up. I tried putting it in right place but either it would be sticking up at the top or the bottom. There was no "perfect spot". This is a real disappointment and I can't recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, May 27, 2015

So far this is performing well (had for a few weeks). Connected through to an older 30-pin JBL speaker I can both charge my iPhone 5S and also hear the music through the speaker.

1.0 out of 5 stars Nice but yes it does easily come off!, May 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Update 2: Well, like others I finally did lose it. Looked down today and it's gone. No idea where it fell off! Taking off another star because this just really isn't something anyone should buy.

Update 1: Taking off a star because it just fell off -- again! For at least the 6th time. Not sure how I have managed to always notice and find it.

Like others I've found that this case can easily pop off. I believe it's happened to me 4 times already (I've had it less than a week). At some point I expect I'll look down and it won't be there. Otherwise I like this case and feel like it protects the display without being too bulky. Perhaps a tiny piece of double-sided tape will help!

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are great, although they can be a pain to cut -- unless you have something like the Craftsman Utility Cutter (http://www.amazon.com/Craftsman-Utility-Cutter/dp/B0035XVSX2/ref=pd_sim_sbs_469_7?ie=UTF8&refRID=1RCD64JWSFEH2ECEPA89). Using this tool it was very easy to cut these to any length in seconds.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars, May 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This isn't really watchable by adults, which is why I give it only three stars. There's plenty of children's programming out there that's tolerable to adults (and dare, Is ay it, even good?) Skip this one if you have to watch it with your kid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solves problems without adding them, March 27, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I haven't had this case for long but I'm loving it so far. I've had Niteize Connect Cases for the iPhone 4s and 5s in the past. Here are the best features of this case:
1) It's fairly thin but still offers good protection. Great tradeoff between protection and bulkiness.
2) It's easy to take off and put on.
3) The clip allows you to pocket your phone without having it slide all of the way down into the bottom of your pocket. Helps avoid the "plank walk".
4) Helps quite a bit with one-handed operation. Instead of having to grasp the phone all the way around the back, you can just grab the far side of the hook in the back. This frees up more of your hand for one-handed operation.
5) The case just barely protrudes past the front of the glass, allowing you to put the phone down on its face without the glass touching. That distance is just a playing card deep (or maybe less) -- not much but it's enough.
Ok - one potential "negative" for some -- the clip does not have holes at the top so you cannot add a Niteize s-clip to this case. I think I'm not going to miss it much so I am not taking off a star for that.
