4.0 out of 5 stars Easy and fast, February 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
But pricing is more than the physical card that is mailed. Not sure why this is. It's nice though for Microsoft to not have my credit card on file. I use amazon edelivery for annual membership and any Microsoft points.

3.0 out of 5 stars works as hoped most of the time, December 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When it works, its really nice. However, there is something that interferes with the signal from time to time making it completely un-usable. Sound quality is good, but not as nice as the wired version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good idea, poor execution, December 20, 2013
I have used this pack now on several rides (all commutes to work), and so far I am happy with the overall quality of the bag. It seem well made and of solid construction. I dont worry about things like straps coming undone or zippers catching air and blowing open.

However, I am not sure if anyone who has ridden a motorcycle worked on engineering this. For starters, there are no external pockets for anything. This means that you have to completely take off the bag, which means that gloves, and helmet are most likely also coming off to get to a wallet in order to pay for gas.

Its also hard to manipulate the buckles (both chest and waist) when wearing gear. I personally found that the waist was almost impossible to work once a motorcycle jacket was put on due to where the buckle is (near the base of the jacket on the right side) and due to how far across the body you have to reach with any sort of bulk. If you are a more 'husky' guy, good luck.

As for interior room, I have a new thin mac book 15 and it barely fits. There are no interior pockets, so things like power supplies, usb drives, thunderbolt adapters, etc float loosely on the bottom. I also bring my lunch to work and its a squeeze to get my laptop and lunch bag in the backpack. If I had anything else in there like an ipad, it would not fit at all.

The idea of packing shoes in here is interesting, but when you get where you are going, there is no way to get boots in here or to strap a helmet, etc to it, so you would need to leave that stuff with the motorcycle or do something else.

2.0 out of 5 stars maybe its better if you are a highschool coach, October 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was hoping for something that would help a first time coach in pop warner organize practice for 1st year tackle youth players. This is much more around administering a complete program.

1.0 out of 5 stars It could be the all time greatest game..., October 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
...If it worked.

GTA Online is very buggy, when you can connect. Its even more difficult to connect with friends or play with your 'crew'.

In my GTA single player game, im 1/2 way through when the story was put into a state that wont allow me to proceed. This game has easily the lowest software quality of any game I have ever played.

I would recommend waiting to purchase this game for a few months and then get a used copy and hopefully Rockstar will have figured out a solution to get this game out of its current 'beta' state.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too often "We're performing scheduled site maintenance at this time" from Nike+, October 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:
-lightweight and comfortable to wear while running
-accurate
-easy to read while working out
-data that is displayed on nike+ is interesting

Cons;
-Nike plus website is often down
-Nike plus uploads can be easily corrupted (site goes down or is partially online when workout is uploaded)
-Can not delete or re-upload workouts
-Limited stats are collected on Nike+. For example, 1 mile and 1k PRs are recorded, but other PR times that might be interesting like 1/2 marathon or marathon times are not.
-Its difficult to configure Nike+ to show you data the way you would like and it can change for no apparent reason.
-Sometimes the watch battery can completely drain over night.

Conclusion:
Its an interesting product with a lot of potential. It could be made a lot better with a few software patches to stabilize the key pieces, but in the mean time, it has more bugs than I would expect a watch and website to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what you expect, June 16, 2013

If you want a cheap pair of headphones, these are for you. They arent at a Bose level in terms of sound and overall quality, but if you want something that is great for a work out, these are what you want. They are comfortable enough in design and the over the ear part keeps the speakers in nice. They are cheap so if you, sweat in them, break them, or otherwise destroy them as part of a workout, no big deal. They sound good enough so listening to tunes or audio books are also good. I have had mine for over a year and now they are starting to sound a little 'tin' like, so I will soon be ordering a new pair.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Guy sleeping bag, March 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Im 6'4" and 225lbs and love this bag. It has a lot of room to move around in and it comes up high enough so I dont feel like my shoulders are exposed. I normally camp in the fall, winter, and spring in SoCal where the night lows generally get down into the 30s and this bag keeps me warm enough that I can sleep comfortably in a t-shirt and shorts. I have used it now on about ~6 multi-night camp-outs and have not had any problems with durability, zippers, rips, etc. Due to its size, its probably not feasible to backpack with.

This review is from: Snap Circuits SC-300 (Toy)
if your kid loves to learn how things work get this toy. if your kid loves legos, get this toy. I had high expectations with this toy after reading the other comments on this page. I have to say, I was even more impressed with the actual toy itself.

The only negative comment is that my box was semi damaged upon arrival...big whoop.
