1.0 out of 5 stars In SERIOUS need of copy editing, August 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You should definitely try the sample before buying. This book is completely incomprehensible. The author seemingly can't even maintain his train of thought through an entire sentence. A sentence will start off ok, then he adds a comma, followed by some comment which doesn't even make sense grammatically, much less in the context of the sentence. In addition, he has invented his own unique system for using capitalization and punctuation, which further confuses matters.

This was a total waste of money, I've gotten more readable results using Google Translate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fairly cheap construction but works ok, August 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's not too bad, but the construction definitely feels cheaper than I was expecting for this price.I'm just using it for a light whose switch is in an inconvenient place, and it's working fine for that, so I'm not going to return it. The click when you step on it isn't very authoritive, so I find myself wondering whether I've actually hit it, since the light takes a moment to turn on. If I need another I'll be looking around to see if there's anything a little more robust for a reasonable price, or at least with a price that lines up better with the quality level.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very solid, July 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was hesitant for a long time to buy these due to the price, but I kept encountering things where the spreader feature would have been useful, and I eventually took the plunge. Now that I have them in my hands, the price seems much more justified. These are much sturdier that the old 12" and 18" versions which I have a number of. The bar is thicker, with an I-beam profile,and the plastic parts are made with a much stronger type of plastic.

The spreader capability is as useful as I imagined, and is easy to use. I was momentarily confused about how it worked though: rather than taking each piece off and flipping it, you just move the fixed arm to the other end of the bar. This is easily done, yet it shows no tendency to come loose on its own--well done Irwin.

An additional nicety is that the pad on the fixed arm has a switch on it: it can either be locked parallel to the other pad, or you can allow it to pivot a small amount in either direction, giving a better grip when what you're clamping isn't perfectly square.

Having tried them, I'll probably have to get at least one more pair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was hoping for, July 24, 2014
I was looking for something that would give some history of trucking in the US, but this is really just nostalgic pictures of old trucks with brief captions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adds another layer of strategy, July 24, 2014
This piece is an interesting addition--it has no defensive use, and is in fact a liability. Your opponent can use it just as easily as you can, and on top of not protecting any pieces behind it, it also allows them to attack in a second direction simultaneously. This makes it completely distinct from the other pieces, you have to be particularly careful when moving it, and it takes some time to work out the best ways to use it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems to help, July 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
CD has a decent variety of sounds. Each track is about 8 minutes long, so you'll want a cd player that can loop a single track. Each track also fades in at the beginning and out at the end, which helps prevent startling an almost-sleeping baby. I was having a hard time finding a small/cheap CD player with the single-track-repeat feature, and we didn't want a giant cd player taking up lots of room in there so we ended up getting a Tecsun D3 Rechargeable MP3 Player which works really well for this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Actually a pretty decent MP3 player, July 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Surprising for such a cheap item--sound quality is pretty good and volume is more than adequate. Directions are all in Chinese but you don't need them anyway. It will loop through all tracks, or you can repeat a single track. Has next/previous buttons, or you can jump to a tracking using the number keys. It just plays through the MP3s in the order they were copied onto the card, not sorted at all. Battery lasts 4-6 hours at moderate volume and seems to recharge in 1-2 hours, or you can use the included wall adapter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quality, July 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Solidly built, tracks well, and tracking was easy to adjust. Lever makes it easy to change belts. It will sit on its back if you want to sand something small. Only used it to fix one sticking door so far, but it certainly gives the impression of something that will be around for a long time.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lots of room for improvement, February 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The only thing this has going for it is that it does seem to keep ants out of the food. However, it's very flimsy and any attempt to move it splashes water everywhere. Even a small kitten stepping on one of the corners will deflect it more than an inch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well in our nursery, February 14, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have an electric heater in the nursery (rather than turning the thermostat up for the whole house), and also a humidifier (our house is really dry in winter). This lets us see where things are actually at, and seeing how big the temp swings are with the min/max function is also nice. Clock may be confusing to set for some since there are only three buttons to work with, but you've probably done it enough on other stuff to figure it out. Only thing I would add for our use is a backlight.
