1.0 out of 5 stars Damaged Surface due to Packaging, July 6, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After ordering a Skinomi Screen Protector for my 8" Galaxy Tab 4 and loving the results, I decided to purchase this brand of screen protector for my other devices.

I have now ordered two of these now for my wife's Galaxy S4. The first one went on with no issues, but after it completely cured, two days later, there is still a pattern to the surface of the protector which you can see here; i1238.photobucket.com/albums/ff482/vladimir___/protector.jpg
So I ordered a replacement for the original damaged one. When the second one arrived, I paid closer attention to prior to removing it from the packaging. After examining how the cellophane bag was stuck and adhered to the screen protector, I removed the screen protector from the cellophane bag and it displayed the same pattern to the protector's surface as the way the cellophane bag was stuck to it.

This surface damage is apparently a result of the cellophane bag sticking to the screen protector and probably sitting in a hot warehouse for who knows how long.

I also ordered two protectors for my Galaxy Note 2. One of the two boxes had an extra piece of packaging material that prevented the cellophane bag from contacting and damaging the surface, the second one did not and had a similar pattern in the surface of the protector.

So if you're purchasing this protector for a device that has just hit the market like my Galaxy Tab 4, you're probably safe. But if you're purchasing these protectors for a device that has been available for a while, you protector may have been sitting in a hot warehouse with the cellophane bag adhering to and damaging the protector's surface.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wonky! Purely wonkey!, August 31, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Power supply was plugged into the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub, whether the power supply worked correctly or not, I cannot say. But something with this package was not working properly.

When the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub is connected to my Mac through a PCI card with USB 3.0 ports, the Mac does not recognize any USB 3.0 portable drive connected to the hub, even though the Mac has no issues with the drives connected directly to the USB 3.0 port.

When the HooToo® USB 3.0 Hub is connected to my PC motherboard's USB 3.0 ports, any drive plugged into the hub reports as being plugged into a USB 2.0 port with Windows 7 reporting "This device an work quicker when plugged into a USB 3.0 port".

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor packaging led to ruined Steelbook!, August 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If I could have chosen no stars, I would have.

Steelbook blu-rays are limited production blu-rays, typically purchased by collectors. Some collectors open these limited steelbooks and some keep them closed as collector's items.

This item arrived with the discs inside loose and rattling around inside the case, which ruined the value of this collector's item. I have no idea whether the steelbook was originally packaged with the discs loose, or whether this happened during shipping, but I have been having issues with Amazon using the barely padded yellow bags for shipping items that can be easily damaged.

2.0 out of 5 stars Starts out well enough..., July 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I initially liked the Intro-Tech Auto Shade, the fit was relatively good, leaving little to no gaps at the top, bottom or sides. Unfortunately, that fitting didn't last past the first week.

After rolling and unrolling the numerous times, this version of Intro-Tech's Auto Shade looses some of it's stiffness. This loss in stiffness allows the sunshade to 'buckle' a bit across the width of the windshield, leaving 3/4" to 1" gaps along the left and right side of the windshield. Even attempting to use the sun visors to 'mash out' and support the Auto Shade does not help since my BMW's sun visors do not fold down far enough to press the Auto Shade up against the windshield.

Any bend or crease to the Auto shade's material will affect how well it covers the area of the windshield. I inadvertently bent a lower corner of the Auto Shade when removing it one afternoon. That lower corner crease allows the auto shade to droop down on the left side of my windshield now, resulting in an even larger gap of area not being covered. To keep the Auto Shade in place, I ended up using the 'pop up' style oval window shades to push the Auto Shade up so that it would cover the windshield as it originally did.

The velcro strap intended for keeping the Auto Shade rolled tightly caught the fabric trim of the pillar support once which pulled the fabric away from the plastic pillar cover causing a very ugly loose section. This area is so visible and distracting that I will end up paying quite a bit to have that piece replaced. This may have been prevented if the softer loop section of the velcro was sewn next to the Auto Shade rather than the hooked section of the velcro.

The only saving grace, and the reason I provided two stars on this review, is that the material does seem to reduce the heat inside the car more than the average 'pop up' style oval window shades.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cooks the pizzas correctly!, April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this to replace an aluminum pizza pan. Cooking pizzas with the aluminum pan I always need to add a few minutes to the cook time to get a pizza cooked correctly. Using this pan, the cook time is reduced and follows the recommended times on the frozen pizza instructions.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap, nasty sticker on Jigger!, April 12, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: EZ Step Jigger, Acrylic
I have owned a couple of these in the past, and they're very quick, easy and convenient as a measurement jigger. Instead of having to look at the side of a jigger to see how much has been poured, you can view this one from the top or side.

I would have given this product 5 stars, except I had to soak the jigger in soap water for three days to get the cheap paper sticker off of the jigger. I don't know whether it was the manufacturer or the retailer that added the sticker, but you can source stickers that are made to be removed and do not leave a residue, you should look into these!

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Color!, March 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The image in the listing shows a white/ivory colored jacket, but what I received was grey jacketed speaker cable. Either the description needs to indicate grey or the picture needs updating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Defective mastering, audio dropouts SEVERAL times through out this blu-ray, February 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If there were an option for no stars, I would have selected that. This blu-ray disc has NUMEROUS audio dropouts through out the movie when using the TrueHD audio selection.

After contacting Sony Home Entertainment Customer Support, they insisted that my blu-ray player needed a firmware update. I then contacted Sony Blu-ray Player service, noting that Sony Home Entertainment stated my player needed a firmware update for my Sony BDP-S560 blu-ray player. Sony support stated there is no firmware update for this issue.

Not only is this happening with Sony's own blu-ray players but several other brands as well. I find it HIGHLY unusual that this is the only blu-ray disc out of the hundreds that I own that exhibits issue and it is not the fault of the disc.

Sony began a disc exchange program but stopped offering the replacements. Apparently the replacement discs that Sony were sending out exhibited the same problems.

Since Sony seems unwilling to address the issue with this defective disc, I returned the defective blu-ray movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never had any issue with BJC cables!, January 2, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have ever run into an issue with a digital cable such as a HDMI cable, you know how much time it can take to narrow the issue down to the cable itself.

While not the cheapest cable you can buy, I would almost guarantee that you will never have a problem that can be traced back to a BJC cable. These cables are highly flexible and are good for longer runs than most other HDMI cables.

5.0 out of 5 stars Under Rated Show, December 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A suspenseful TV series that isn't your usual 'cookie-cutter' storyline. Just when you think that they can't do very much more with the story, it takes an imaginative turn.
