4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely not for Backpacking, April 29, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great value, undeniably warm. Low commitment purchase for my daughter for a winter trip in the Sierras. Can verify that it did keep her warm approaching 0ºF. But it took two compression sacks and careful planning to get it through the opening of her pack where filled all the space in the main compartment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Noise, April 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This produces playback but it has the sprocket engagement parts of an actual cassette and these rattle around loosely in the housing and make enough noise that you don't want to listen to it. When I have a moment I will open the case and find out if these have any possible function that I might not have foreseen, then take them out. I will update this if I produce something useable.

5.0 out of 5 stars These are the good ones, April 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Chinese branded products can be exact duplicates of the ones they make for known international brands. They can also be the absolutely minimal assembly of parts that could be sold as the item they purport to be. One of the best things about the Amazon reviewer community is that it allows you to know in advance which is which.

These headphones are definitely Chinese branded. The package is visually very impressive but the copy reads, in part "capable for extra long time music playback." They are also, as the revues here indicate, produce sound comparable to those at six times the price and have a full set of bluetooth features which function flawlessly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprising Value, April 5, 2015

No compromise made to get to this price. Meets all the specs listed, including ease of installation. The company even provides pro-active customer service by email.

2.0 out of 5 stars The beautiful kind of stainless steel, but very little of it, February 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
18/10 and nicely finished, they look good, but the design makes them almost unusable for me. Surprised at how small and flat they were when I unwrapped them.Thin handles, flattened with a slight curvature, comfortable only when gripped with fingertips. Maybe when summer comes and the butter is softer this will work. At 70F there is just not enough control. When held in the hand, the corner of the handle digs into the soft area of the palm. This is for my large hands; there are a lot of positive reviews so others must have found a better fit.


Therm-a-Rest Neo-Air Xtherm Sleeping Pad

5.0 out of 5 stars A technical advance, great engineering where you might least expect it, December 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I noted the high R-value when I ordered but thought I was getting something like previous generations of Thermarest. I was shocked by the tiny package that arrived. Smaller and lighter than even the minimal models of the past. I was very unsure it would actually function. It turned out to be also the most comfortable pad I have slept on, as well as the warmest.

Insulation is achieved by a series of internal baffles forming separate air pockets. Simple enough, but the technical achievement is assembling it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully not too late for you to get a ChromeCast instead, December 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have been Apple loyalist since the beginning, but I despair of anything iTunes, the app, the store, and trying to use the app as a file system on the iPhone, and now the Apple TV. Simple and clean to set up for iTunes and other commercial channels. So far impossible (I am not a neophyte, check the forums) to set up mirroring for my pre-2011 iMac.

Again Apple has crimped the usability of one of its elegant devices in the interest of pushing their overpriced content.

The auto-switching feature only occasionally works. Still give it three stars because I didn't really expect that it would.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As reviewed elsewhere, not the kind of tools to use if they are primary to your craft. For occasional use they are appropriately priced and indispensable. I used to beg my dental hygienist to keep some discarded tools for me.
