1.0 out of 5 stars All hype. Way too salty. Doesn't add much to the taste of the popcorn, September 21, 2014

I did not like this. The hype for this product is undeserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect size. Positively 80's, September 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love it, but the clamp isn't that great. I don't think it will last. At this price I think I will collect every version of this.

1.0 out of 5 stars For somber occasions..., September 14, 2014
I work in a funeral home where customers often ask for audio to be played during the wake. So we play this album in the background because it does not contain any jokes. There were few instances where Joe DeRosa's "comedy" reanimated the corpses and made them cover their ears inside the caskets, but now we just tie their hands to prevent it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing quality, September 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This case is unbelievably good. I've gone through couple of cases in the past but nothing felt as good as Toblino on the iPad2. Hard to believe it's only $40. Great attention to detail and it doesn't add bulk to the product.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good. Do not buy., March 21, 2008
I made the stupid mistake and went by the product reviews on Amazon, eventually settling on this product. I bought it from a local retailer and felt buyer's remorse right after I took it out of the box.

It's pretty cheap looking. The legs are not round in their construction - they are fragile and somewhat bendy. I couldn't feel the quality of higher end tripods like Manfrotto ones, even though that was implied. The design of the tripod is really strange and looks like something out of the 80's. You can't really tell that by looking at the picture. In person it's just awkward. Leg tensions will pretty much guarantee that you'll injure your finger at some point.

Today I returned it and got a much better one - Slik Pro 400DX. It's just a 10 dollar difference but the construction and the quality trump this baby tripod. It has a nice weight to it (just right), and the legs are cushioned. I love the 400DX.

Learn from my mistake and don't buy it because of the glowing reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid pitcher, September 17, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very small. Steams enough milk for 1 serving of double-shot latte. When deciding on size, always measure liberally. Take into account that steamed milk usually doubles in size if done properly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it's supposed to do, September 17, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have looked everywhere for a tamper that would fit Saeco Aroma for a sensible price, but 53mm tampers were either too expensive or just unavailable. Although this one doesn't fit properly, the small end of it covers about 90% of the basket. Overall, I'm happy with it. It's a temporary solution. Tamper brand or construction is not a huge variable in the resulting quality of an espresso shot. You might at well use something out of the hardware store as long as it tamps the loose grounds well enough. This is why I am skeptical of tampers that cost 50-100 dollars. If RSVP Terry tamper fits your basket's proportions you should consider it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real deal, July 4, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'll skip reviewing the content and speak to book's edition. This is the one that was abridged by the author from a multi-volume, earlier edition. In later years, the tome was watered down and censored due to authorial speculation on the nature of Jesus. All the controversial ideas are present in this particular edition, so it is safe to purchase it and not feel cheated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional mouse, July 4, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is my second purchase in 3 years because the first one gave out due to USB-plug failure, as it is expected of tech products which experience heavy use. Despite this, it is quite durable, does not require changing batteries every two weeks, and has a cord management system that makes sense, compared to other mice which have awkward retractable cords.

It's especially good when you have a sub-15" notebook computer, like a MacBook. Lots of people make the mistake of investing in giant mice to drive a cursor on a 12-14" screens.

I would recommend it to anyone who needs a corded laptop mouse.
