4.0 out of 5 stars Great product, February 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have had this scale for over a month and have no complaints. The only functionality I wish it had is displaying total muscle mass in pounds rather (or in addition to) as a percentage of body weight. One can increase muscle as a percentage but actually lose muscle mass, especially when on a fat loss regime, so this is something I like keeping an eye on. The scale already has the inputs it needs (total weight, and muscle as a percentage of it) so it just a matter of doing the multiplication.

Granted, a minor area of opportunity in an otherwise excellent appliance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, but departing in style from Endwar #1 (meh), December 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The book is ok, yet not as good as the first one of the saga. Moreover, it is written in a very different style, which might throw some readers off.

The story departs from that "Red Storm Rising" vibe that Endwar #1 provided (techno-thriller covering large-scale conventional operations, seen from the personal POV of various parties involved), adopting more of a spec-ops or even spy-chase style (more of a Ghost-Recon meets The Cardinal of the Kremlin, if you know what I mean). Albeit interesting, it wasn't quite what I was looking forward to.

I bought the book to keep myself entertained during a long plane ride, and it did the trick well enough. That being said, I have re-read Endwar #1 several times, and this one I have only read once and never found myself craving to go back again.

Bottom-line, if you enjoyed Endwar #1, get Red Storm Rising. You will love it. You might as well get this one to get some sense of closure, just don't expect a classic. It is not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with the product, August 4, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am giving this product 5 stars because I am overall very satisfied both with the quality and looks of the product, and it provides and excellent value for the money (considering that you get a dozen).

I certainly do not know much about cloth feels/texture, etc. or the fine details of tableware, so if you are looking for some specific fabric quality or any opinion in those lines, this review probably won't be of much use. However, if you are a person like me, merely looking for something that looks very nice for special occasions (e.g., when having a girl over, etc.), then take my word for it: Looks fancy and it is affordable. I don't see any reasons for it not getting 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars It is nice - But there are some caveats, January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some comments:
1. It is a nice bracalet and the seller delivered in time
2. It is a bit too big for my wrist (which I assume is normal-sized). In fact, I read a similar comment in here before buying, but didn't really pay attention to it. So keep in mind: If your wrist is normal-sized, it WILL be a bit too large. If your wrist is a bit large, it should fit perfectly.
3. The finish looks actually more golden than pink, i.e., the picture in the web is "pinker". I am not a big fan of carrying around a golden bracalet because may look sort of cheesy (too much bling). Pink is at least original in a guy (and a guy who is not able to rock pink is not a man).

All those things considered, it is a nice product. I use it to accesorize a bit when I go out. Chicks start conversations when one carries around eclectic stuff.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good sheets, December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There isn't really a lot to say on a bed sheet recommendation. I am satisfied: these sheets are nice looking, the fabric feels good and the product is exactly as advertised. Great deal. I got the burgundy ones, and they work very well on black furniture in your bedroom (e.g.,bed, night tables, etc.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool posters, December 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: #N/A (Kitchen)
I bought the three posters of the collection (Freedom is Peril ..., Keep Calm..., and Your Courage...) and I am very satisfied with the purchase. They are a great conversational topic -the story behind them is that they were originally part of British communication campaign geared towards maintaining the population morale during the German bombings of London- and give my pad a pretty cool hip/classy/wordly angle. It is also worth mentioning that the posters are different colors, so they work well as wall decoration for a living room/bedroom. Really like them.

I keep getting complements on the watch. The watch is very stylish: it looks elegant/expensive without looking old-fashioned or over-the-top.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great looking sunglasses, October 8, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You just can't go wrong with a pair of Aviators. These are the only sunglasses that I would buy without trying them on first. The blue-pink shade is very nice too. I thought that the pink shade would be a bit pinker, yet it still looks very nice. Highly recommended.

Sort of wobbly, but it does its thing... especially considering its price. Good bang for the buck.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worked as advertised, October 15, 2010

The product works and snaps in quite easily in the vacuum cleaner. I don't know what else is there to say about a HEPA filter, but I am happy with it.
