Pinzon Egyptian Cotton 6-Piece Towel Set, Cream
Pinzon Egyptian Cotton 6-Piece Towel Set, Cream
Price: $21.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the $$$, August 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm quite happy at this price. The bath towels are really thick and thirsty. However, the hand towels and washcloths are not quite as impressive, and seem a little thin. (The bath towels are actually a little nicer than the Ralph Lauren towels I have been using, but the others seem a bit "budget" thickness.) My niggling complaint has nothing to do with the quality, but the color description: the so-called "cream" color I bought really isn't cream to my eyes -- more like a light beige. Still looks nice, but not quite what I was expecting. Still, no complaints at this price, and color is subjective, after all. These really are great for the money.

3.0 out of 5 stars Carelessly put together selection, August 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Leaving aside Sargent's famously lethargic pace for a moment, this is a carelessly put together assortment of "bests," which leaves out an unbelievable number of the most beloved G&S songs, and includes far too many deservedly obscure numbers, from the lesser operettas. Avoid. If you have to listen to Sargent, buy the full sets, selectively if need be, to get the G&S songs you love.

5.0 out of 5 stars a true champ, August 27, 2014
Over a 20 year period, Midnight has finished at or near the top of the official National Turf Evaluation Program (NTEP) rankings every year, an amazing record. There are some newer KBG cultivars that slightly outpoint Midnight in one or two areas, but as an overall performer, Midnight sets the standard by which others are judged. I've used it for years, and will continue to do so until something better comes along, which might be another 20 years from the looks of it. Midnight is the Secretariat of grass seed, a true champ IMHO.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Patching (Only), August 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is great seed for patching bare spots, but be aware of its limitations. It is mostly annual ryegrass, which germinates amazingly quickly, but is pretty coarse, and can barely tolerate temps over 85F. There is some intermediate and perennial rye in the blend, which is a good thing, but I wouldn't want to do my entire lawn with this mix regardless. Use perennial rye or tall fescue for a permanent lawn. They look much better and will be much hardier.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fingers too Long for Me (Male L Size), August 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are good for the money -- thick latex that resists water well, My only problem with them is that the fingers are quite long. They fit fine on the palm - medium would be too tight for my hands (male, L) -- but there is about 1/2 inch extra finger space compared to the "large" size work gloves I have bought from other manufactures. I can use them, but I will try another brand next time.

2.0 out of 5 stars penny-wise and pound foolish, June 29, 2014
This is hardly a premium mix, and the description of it being of he same high quality of the name brands is simply untrue. This blend is 60% Argyle Kentucky Bluegrass, a "common" bluegrass that is about as bad as it gets -- poor disease tolerance, and quite stemmy and unattractive. Merit (20%) is slightly better, but undesirable in my view. I have never heard of Kelly, and it is not widely used, probably for good reason. The price is low, but the so is the quality. Fine, if you want that, but penny-wise and pound foolish for anyone who wants a good lawn.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Product, but not as economical as the granular Miracle-Gro, June 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just to state the obvious, perhaps, you are paying for convenience here by getting it in liquid form. If you don't mind digging into the powder bag and getting your fingers a little blue (always happens with me), the granular Miracle-Gro costs about 1/3rd as much for an equal amount of NPK. However, it works great, just like granular Miracle Gro, although I would note that both forms are very short duration (7-14 days), so you might wish to consider a time release product if you have a large yard or garden.
