3.0 out of 5 stars Hold your nose, clean your glasses., June 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Cleans your specs well enough, but it also has a revolting scent to it, a very heavily floral, sticky sweet odor that is almost overpowering. Stick with regular UltraClarity, which does the same job just as well and has a more neutral scent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands down the best lime shave cream, May 15, 2016
Expensive, but if you've got the dosh, this is shave heaven. Strong lime scent for a few moments before it settles down. Just a smooth shave overall. I hand apply (no brush) and it lathers well, in fact, I actually recommend using it by hand, it's probably a little too stiff right out of the jar for a brush. Defiantly worth it. You get a fairly generous amount as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Left a huge mess, May 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product is NOT made by the people who make regular Endust, they have just licensed their name to the small company who makes this. It's pretty bad, it streaks horribly and no amount of wiping seems to remove it. I finally had to use another brand of cleaner (DeOxit, itself not that good) to remove the mess that this stuff made.

4.0 out of 5 stars A serious contender in 24-70 f/2.8 lenses, October 3, 2015
Sharper than both the original Nikon 24-70mm and the current Tamron, not LOTS sharper but it's definitely noticeable. Zoom ring a little stiff. Manual focus clutch works like a charm. Worst front lens cap in my bag, just tap it and it falls off, you'll want to substitute it. A heavy lens with an 82mm filter thread, but I find the heft reassuring. It will be interesting to see how it stacks up optically to the forthcoming replacement Nikkor, but it's definitely going to be $1400 cheaper. If VR doesn't matter to you and you need a quality lens in this category, this is one you should consider.

UPDATE: After seven months with this lens, i must say that I am continually impressed. I borrowed the new version of the Nikkor 24-70mm, and I have to say that the Tokina is every bit as sharp at center, and is more uniformly sharp across the entire image. Yes, the auto focus is slow and noisy, and yes there is no VR, but this is a quality lens that for some reason is being largely ignored by the photographic press, and as far as I am concerned, a steal.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flimsy!, July 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a VERY thin small gauge cable, with tiny connectors, and is not very reassuring as far as build quality. It works, but I worry about it standing up to abuse or tugging. Would be appropriate for earbuds like the Etymotics, whose own cable is as thin as this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice little writer, once you break it in., July 6, 2015
It takes a little bit to get going and will run thin and skip for a bit, but once the feed gets saturated it's a fine, smooth little writer. Although the description calls the point a "medium", it is actually closer to a "fine", about a 0.5mm line. I wish it were a tad wider. Also, I have only tried this with J. Herbin ink cartridges, which have a nice wet flowing ink, your mileage may vary with other brands. Nice to have it in the collection, will make a good toss-in-the-bag pen.

REVISING: After about 1.5 months of solid use, I must sadly revise my review downward to two stars from four. I had hoped that the pen would be a good "toss-in-the-bag pen" as I noted above. I have come to find that the pen can take NO jostling whatever without leaking like a sieve. I have placed it in the pocket of my cargo shorts on several occasions, and on return home had to immediately flush the pooled ink out of the cap. No good. Buy for your desktop, not for your case.

4.0 out of 5 stars All good so far . . ., June 2, 2015

Attractive and appears solidly built, does what it is advertised to do: syncs my gear and sits still on my desk so I don't have to go fishing on the floor for it. Little pricey though, so I hope it lasts awhile.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh., March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's . . . . OK. Smells good, you get a decent shave. Certainly no better that Cremo Cream, which is half the price. Heavy tube is hard to squeeze, though, making the last few ounces difficult to dispense. Threw it out wondering how much was left in it. Won't buy again.

2.0 out of 5 stars Can no longer recommend., August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
T-fal has come back from the dreadful FV4476 with a much better iron. Good side: heats quickly, plenty of steam, ceramic sole-plate is smooth, 12-foot AC cord is long enough to get to any outlet comfortably, they've finally fixed the leaking filling spout issue. Bad side: black isn't exactly a cheerful color, iron makes strange clanging noises while heating and cooling. Bottom line: keeper!

UPDATE 3/10/15: After about a year and a half of use, I no longer recommend this iron. The amount of steam it produces has dropped sharply even after repeated cleanings, and the iron now leaks badly, giving you a wet palm while you iron your laundry. Disappointing after a hopeful start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely streaks . . ., June 13, 2014
In spite of the claims made for this product by the manufacturer, this will absolutely leave streaks, even when wiped with a clean microfiber cloth. I've tried a LOT of eyeglass cleaning solutions, this is near the bottom.
