3.0 out of 5 stars Needs brighter keycaps and bigger home row bumps, November 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: the bluetooth connection is reliable and reestablishes quickly when its been left idle and the feel of the keys is good.

Cons: I wish the lettering on the keycaps was brighter! I have an under desk keyboard tray and my keyboard is always in shade, especially at night. If I'm hunting for a key (like typing a credit card number) I have to stare and stare ...is that a 5 or a 6? To make matters worse, the bumps on the F and J keys to help you find the home row are not very pronounced. I have to hunt for those often as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bass player approved, November 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a bass player in a rock band--good speakers are my friend. But shopping for speakers is so frustrating. The ones that sound good are super overpriced and the inexpensive ones sound awful. I wanted a bluetooth speaker to be shared by the 3 people in my small office. What I need is a bluetooth-enabled speaker that doesn't sound like crap and which also will allow everyone to take a turn at wireless DJ--without giving $150 to Bose or Beats. This item from TaoTronics does it! It's not going to replace my studio monitors, but it delivers a nice bump and a full sound. At $60, it's not cheap. But it's not ridiculously overpriced like the others in its hi-fi class.

4.0 out of 5 stars boss say's it's great on her iPad mini, November 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this for my boss when she busted a couple of keycaps off of her Kensington keyboard/case thing. This unit is a lot cheaper and I was worried it would be no good. I put it on for her and then a few days later I asked how it was working. "Totally great," she said. I'd say this keyboard is a bargain because you're getting more than you pay for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gag But Strap Lacks Grip, October 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really like this bag. The materials and construction seem high quality. It is larger than I needed, but I'm NOT holding that against it. For some reason the economics of these bags are weird and the Small size was way more expensive than the Medium. Anyway, I can put my Macbook Air 11" and my iPad mini and all their various cables and adapters in the bag and still have room for my lunch and possibly a hoodie, too. I could have easily gone with a Small. One thing I DO find fault with, though, is the shoulder strap. It's got no grip! It constantly slides off my shoulder. I find myself having to keep a hand on the strap while I walk.

2.0 out of 5 stars Three Problems, October 31, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using this adapter for months. Macbook Air (2014) to Visio 32" TV several years old. I use it day in and day out and it's "good enough," as evidenced by the fact that I've not replaced it. However. I do have some problems. I'm not positive that they are the result of the adapter, but I think so. Soon i'll get a replacement and see if they go away. But for now here's my issues: FIRST, closed clamshell mode does not work on my laptop. You cannot get a video signal to the TV with the laptop closed. I have read everything about how this feature works and it does. not. work. SECOND issue is a very noticeable buzz in the audio coming out of my TV. The HDMI cable I'm using to hook the adapter to the TV is a brand new Amazon Basics. I think the adapter is poorly shielded and introducing this noise. THIRD problem is that sometimes when I turn on/wake up my computer the video to the tv flashes in and out. It comes on and then every 20 seconds it goes black and comes back after 5 seconds. Once this has started it seems like it will just continue like that forever. I usually unplug the adapter from the laptop for a minute and plug it back in. That seems to fix it.

UPDATE: Got the Amazon Basics Mini Displayport to HDMI adapter and what do you know! Closed clamshell mode works! And that awful buzz in the audio? Noticeably reduced. This item definitely was the cause of those problems. I would not buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars First water bottle I've actually liked!, September 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I hate water bottles. But not this one. It's easy to fill, easy to drink from, easy to open and close and easy to clean. The lid pops open with the push of a button. It can be locked open by pushing it all the way back. It can be locked closed with a small wire loop over the button. The shape and texture of the bottle make for a good grip. The opening you drink from is easy to sip or guzzle. There is a counter dial that goes from 1 to 6, presumably to keep track of how many times you've filled it during your day. It's difficult to advance, as twisting it tends to unscrew the entire lid. Other than that it's pretty much perfect.

3.0 out of 5 stars It fits like a glove, August 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this to hold my 11 inch Macbook Air. It fits like a glove. In fact, I think it's a bit too snug. The laptop fits perfectly, but it's a squeeze to get the power adapter in with it. I'd rather have a slightly larger bag where everything fits comfortably.
