After 2 years, the usb socket broke and I can't charge it anymore. It's a shame, because otherwise the light functions perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars 25 mbps in my house., January 25, 2015
With my laptop right next to my Wifi-N router, I get about 28 mbps. With these powerline adapters, I get about 25 mbps, and that's passing through a circuit breaker box.

I had some problems with circuit breakers tripping for a while, but to my surprise, after changing my root router, that problem went away.

3.0 out of 5 stars Desperately needs an update after 2013 law changes, December 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After the law changed in early 2013, much of what this book recommends is wrong. It spends many pages telling you how to keep an inventor's notebook; which is useless under the new law. I'm shocked Nolo hasn't updated it already.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good choice for bicycle commuting., December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: RoadHawk Ride (Electronics)
Pros:
Small size, it's a feather on your helmet.
Simple operation: only one button to push.
Perfect for road safety: records time and date stamp, and automatically loops.
Easy to connect to computer and watch videos.

Cons:
At 720 resolution, you have to be right next to a car to make out its license plate.
There is no documentation on all the mounts, I had to watch a YouTube video to discover the best way to mount to my helmet.
There is no bicycle mount; it must be mounted on your helmet, unless you can custom fabricate your own mount.
The position of the microphone means all you hear is wind noise.

Conclusion:
Gets the job done, but I look forward to the next, improved version. For me, the time stamp and looping functions are critical for my commute, and I couldn't find them in any other camera suitable for cycling. The small size is great too.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's very noisy., October 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Forget about using it for an indoor aquarium or even on a patio. I suppose if you're riding a power boat, you'd never hear it.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best, because it's the worst, August 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are may favorite episodes of Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, because the plots are absolutely horrible. Every monster is bullet-proof, and half of them have mind control.


API 14-Day Pyramid Automatic Fish Feeder
API 14-Day Pyramid Automatic Fish Feeder
Price: $3.50
20 used & new from $1.50

4.0 out of 5 stars Works as advertised, August 15, 2013
I have 6 1.5-inch gold fish. I dropped this this feeder in the tank and went on vacation for a week. When I came back, my fish were happy. Water testing showed only the water hardness increased, which fish don't care about. Maybe there was a bit more algae growth than usual, maybe not. It's hard to tell.

3.0 out of 5 stars Runs Large., September 16, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wear a size Large in Hanes' pajamas. But for these, a size Large was too big. I need a medium. The fabric is quite thin, but that's what I wanted.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's a reason why it's still in print after 57 years., July 14, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If your first language is English, then this is book is the easiest way possible to learn Spanish. The languages have so much in common, why not start by learning the similarities? Why not start by teaching the past tense which is the most common tense used in conversation? I love the author's very practical style that gets you speaking real Spanish quickly. Of course, conjugating the tricky verb tenses can't be avoided, but the book introduces them slowly over many chapters. In other words, the book doesn't dump a whole tense on you in a single chapter; it will introduce only a couple conjugations of that tense (for example, I and you) in that chapter.

It's so easy and fun, I have to conciously limit myself to one chapter per day. I want to go faster, but I'll probably forget too much if I do.

The book lacks any useful guide to pronunciation or listening, so you'll need another resource to master them.
