1.0 out of 5 stars please buy a pair of Levis which are every bit as good and donate the rest to a charity or something, February 18, 2016
If you spend 235 dollars on a pair of Jeans there is simply something wrong with you.....please buy a pair of Levis which are every bit as good and donate the rest to a charity or something. ANY company that thinks this is justifiable needs to go out of business tomorrow

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful TV, November 28, 2012
I like many recently got this TV from WalMart on Black Friday for 688.00 and yes it was a total STEAL!!! I along with others got very lucky at this price I admit, but the TV is absolutely worth the 1K that you are being charged here at Amazon

The picture is fantastic....it sets up very easily and the keyboard on the back of the remote is a major plus for entering information. With the thin Bezel it gives a nice clean look and using a low profile mount it looks fantastic on the wall.

Now it is easy to expound on all the virtues of the tv which there are many but I will give you SMALL issues I did have with it because that is really what you are looking for right?

1) the Standard picture setting you get out of the Box have to be tweaked as they are way too "colorful"....use the settings giving in here from Kris above as they are an excellent starting point and then tweak a little here and there to your liking. The problem I had is that you had to redo them for all the different inputs.....it isnt a one time fix. Once you have done them for the inputs though they stay

2) the hook ups and power connector are set a little far in IMO and make it difficult (slightly) to hook things in when you are mounting on a wall. If you are going for a clean install you want to hide the cluster of wires behind the tv so they will already be sitting there and you have hook them up last. A minor issue

3) my Biggest issue with the whole thing really is the remote.......it is a great remote to be sure as I mentioned above but I think it was short sighted of Vizio to not make this a Universal remote. I was going to buy a Vizio Bluray player also but found out that even though both of the remotes are basically identical one will not control both pieces of equipment. Something for them to think about......It would make the experience better if they made the TV remote a Universal and also promote brand loyalty

4) the access to Netflix and Amazon prime is excellent and the experience with Netflix is what you have come to expect but if you really look into it, the content in Prime streaming is actually surpassing Netflix now. Example (for us 40-50 year olds) you can now stream Friends and the West Wing on Prime and you can not do that on Netflix.....so the issue is that the interface with Netflix is excellent for saving what you are watching and your instant Que......Prime really needs to make the interface better. you have to jumps through a few too many hoops to get back to where you were. Again a smallish thing

All in all a wonderful purchase and if you are in the market for a TV this size you simply can not go wrong with this TV

and this is for you out there that think that a 60 Inch TV is too big for a bedroom.........its because you havent tried it. This thing is on the wall in my Bedroom and I am LOVING IT!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Bought this as a joke, March 28, 2012

This review is from: UFO: Target Earth (DVD)
For my brother

we watched this movie in the theaters so many years ago when we were very young (maybe 8 and 11) and even at those tender ages we realized that we just were subjected to one of the worst movies of all times. To this day when I am asked which are the worst movies I ever saw....this movie is on the top or right near the top of the list.

2.0 out of 5 stars I understand the love people have, March 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For these books....I do truly

But for me......I decided on reading this series after watching the first season on HBO and I couldn't get enough.....plowed right through GOT and COK, but I made it through 2/3s of Sword of Storm and got to a particular scene and that just stopped me dead in my tracks. People that have already read these books are probably pretty sure which one I am referring to but I don't want to ruin it for those that haven't read the books yet. Maybe I do live in a Pollyanna World or such, but I simply don't want to continue down this road with the Author......to say I was disappointed in his choices is understatement. I read for enjoyment,inspiration and a feeling that there is good in the world. I choose not to accept this dark, cynical, despairing world that Martin seems to revel in....where goodness and honor is for fools and suckers and you are rewarded for how much you can betray others and be evil. The original plot/premise of the books is one I would have loved to seen followed through to a satisfying conclusion but to see it all abandoned so easily was shocking and confusing to say the least and made the rest of the story moot to me. It feels like somewhere along the way he just decided he didn't like the books he was writing and blew everything up for shock value.

Now I dont fancy myself any kind of writer...I am the farthest thing from it and I admire anyone with the skill to write for a living. That being said I felt that Martin COULD have cut those books down maybe 200 or more pages by simply not spending so much space describing down to the smallest details every tunic worn and every banner flown......sometimes I felt he was spending so much time describing things just to fill up space on pages.

Maybe I am a romantic or feel I need to see honor in things......but after that one scene I simply dont think there is any honor left in these books really nor in possibly the Author himself

5.0 out of 5 stars Why did I wait so long??, March 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I made the plunge the other day to get my first tablet/reader and I got the Fire. Wow has it made reading so much more enjoyable......as I have gotten older I have been having more and more difficulty reading a normal book unless I have strong light. This units screen is backlit and makes reading easy again. Set up was incredibly easy.....I would say from taking it out of the package and starting to read my first book on it (Storm of Swords) took about 4 minutes total. With my Prime membership I can also borrow books if I want and watch all the streaming videos as well. A really great device and I will be getting one for my son for X-Mas

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well....but, September 13, 2011
$55.00 Dollars Amazon?

Really??

this item if you walked into a Verizon store tomorrow is only 39.99 and MOST of us get a 25% discount through our work so it is actually only 30.00 plus tax

way to overprice for the unknowing Amazon

4.0 out of 5 stars Best "Styx" album since Paradise Theater, July 2, 2010
It feels like we were finally given the Album that Dennis promised during the reunion tour.

I try to forget Brave New World personally.

A lot to love about this work and can be listened to over and over. The first four songs really get this moving in the right direction....it will take you aback with the amount of guitar work in it.....like Dennis was trying to send a message that he has a harder side too.

if you liked pre Kilroy Styx you will really appreciate this album

BTW.....I wonder if Tommy or JY listened to this, looked over at Gowen and realized he would never even come close

5.0 out of 5 stars Dont even worry....., June 22, 2010
I was skeptical I admit

I moved out of my house into a much smaller townhouse and I had to give up my Klipsche 2 series 5.1 system.....I HATED giving up surround sound. I have been bouncing back forth between this one and the CT350 model. I was scared that this wouldn't be as loud as I would like it........wow was I wrong. The room I have it in is only 11 X 15 (system on short side) and this thing is fantastic. It has a max volume of 50 and I find 24 to be more than enough. Is it true 5.1....no... but it has great surround effects and very full sound.....you will feel like the action is going around you which is what we all want anyway isn't it?

I tested it with Avatar Blu Ray..... Lord of the Rings ROTK Disc 2 DVD......Invictus ON Demand (for the accents.....hard on TV speakers).....was blown away each time

I turned up the center to +5 to bring out the dialog a little more and set the sub at +2

I also mounted the speaker ABOVE the TV which I feel really helps to bring out the surround effects because they don't get lost down near the ground around the furniture

It is a little slow switching inputs but that is to be expected......the remote will only control Sony products....so if you have non Sony stuff invest in a Harmony remote

If you are planning this for a really large room and you are going to be sitting 17 or more feet away maybe you should consider the 400W 350 model..... but for a normal room you will be thrilled by this unit.

I couldnt be more happy with this purchase

1.0 out of 5 stars Add me to the list....this game is AWFUL!!!!, March 20, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have purchased EVERY C+C game ever made.....and I still play many of them regularly.

this game is beyond awful......a total absolute waste of money....they have gone away from all of the things that made their games fun to play. NO Harvesting....NO buildings....NO unit build ups....NO strategy

Capture the flag (Nods) ......seriously????

it isnt even fun on Skirmish

and the internet thing is ludicrous

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY......please do not think "well maybe it will be different for me...maybe I will like it"..... you wont

EA Games should seriously think about refunding everyone that bought this travesty their money back......I dare you to find people that like this game
