1.0 out of 5 stars Very, very bad!, November 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a piece of CR*P! I bought it to demonstrate Newton's action-reaction law during a lecture. It is so small that it is useless for an audience. (3-1/2 x 3-1/2 x 4-3/8 inches). More importantly, the spheres are totally missaligned to the extent that nothing can be demonstrated. The strings seem to be glued in place so no adjustment is possible as far as I can see.

Even if it were well aligned, it woluld still be way over-priced for the quality you get.

I cannot add to the expert testimonies already submitted for this lens other than to say that I love it and have achieved fabulous results with it on my D800.

5.0 out of 5 stars A terrific source for the science behind the experts' advice, November 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very rigorous mathematical look at the game of billiards. My having been trained as a mathmatician and physisist, this is exacly what I was seeking. Now remember that the random unknowables of the pool table are sufficiently influential so that one cannot become an expert by formal analysis alone. But it is nice to know the physical science behind some of the insider pool hall expertise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for a walk around photo shoot, November 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This monopod is exactly what I was looking for. Extremely light and portable. Naturally not strong enough to support a full size camera and lens, but just right for taking the yips out of hand held photos when walking around.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice little books, very weak box for the set., September 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This set was published by Barnes and Noble some time ago. I was in Ashland, Oregon and discovered a set there. I have a brother who enjoys miniature books so I bought the Ashland set as a gift. The books are in excellent shape but the box was a bit rough. So I looked for a set in better shape and found it on Amazon. Described as in excellent condition, I bought it. When it arrived, I found that that set also had perfect little books but a worn box. Disappointed, I guess that the box is the weak spot in this product. In any case, my brother was happy for the gift and I now have the original set as well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good in some ways, but in others a disappointment., August 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A few years back I bought a COOLPIX S6300 and it performed very well. While taking a photo from the back of a motorcycle, my girlfriend caught a bug directly into the lens opening. We cleaned it out as quickly and thoroughly as we could, but parts of the bug caused permanent dark blotches in all subsequent photos.
Well, it has been a couple years so maybe the S5300 currently is equivalent of the previous S6300. And, indeed, some features like the video capture is far better on the new camera.
However, the camera takes forever to power up. Often the first photo cannot be taken for 4-5 seconds. For candid opportunities, this is an eternity. Other times, the focus gets confused by the fact that we are moving and fails to operate. It either refuses to snap a picture or is completely out of focus.
It does take good photos, but for my purposes the above shortcomings often make it unusable.

I really like the feel of these sheets. Very soft and smooth. They run nicely large in size and fit my very thick mattress plus memory foam pad.

2.0 out of 5 stars Run very narrow, August 4, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These seem to run very narrow. I usually wear 11-EE or 11-EEEE and took a chance with these. They seem more like a D width, I could not even get my foot in past the narrow ankle area even with the zipper fully open. Too bad, I like the look and they seem to be well made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very steady, fits perfectly., June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this mount for my Nuvi to use when I rented a Harley in Washington DC. It worked perfectly. It mounted easily on the handlebars, albeit with very long threads on the u-bolt. Never a problem, very adjustable, positions the GPS for easy visibility.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really nice, I like it, June 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This fits my new HP laptop just about perfectly. It is well built, has pockets for additional storage, is not weighty, and looks good. My only wish is that it would be about 1/2 inch wider. I use a wireless mouse which has a fob that plugs into a USB port on the side. When I leave this fob plugged in, the laptop does not slide easily into this case. I can wiggle it a bit and then it will fit, but a little wider would be more convenient.
