3.0 out of 5 stars Average, October 5, 2013

It does allow use of the 87.9 FM, which is excellent. Other than that, it's average. The output is worse than my older Griffin, though.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, but maddening, February 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the story of a young (black) handyman who was sentenced to death for the murder of an elderly white woman in a southern town (Greenwood, SC). The trial and sentencing went through extremely quickly, and he was convicted despite the efforts (or, rather, due in part to the lack of effort) of his alcoholic / inattentive counsel. The book lays out the history of the (multiple) trials in great detail as the state attempts to end his life.

It's not that the book isn't good (it is), but it's simultaneously infuriating and aggravating. The author writes as if he's laying out a case for the defense, really - more and more evidence piles up until it's difficult to disagree with the conclusion, that the man was railroaded and almost certainly innocent. Because of all this, it's not the most enjoyable read, even though it's well-crafted; it's not by any means a fairy tale.

That being said, I would recommend the book, as it is well-crafted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but no volume control, February 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Netflix (App)
The picture quality is good, albeit with some choppiness. It's unclear whether that's a buffering issue on the Fire. My real complaint is the lack of a volume control within the UI itself. Because of that missing feature, you can't really use headphones unless they have their own volume control - the system is just too loud.

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be 4*, but buggy, January 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The bad news: the app crashes continuously, probably 70% of the time upon reopening. Plus downloads of new versions take quite a while.

The good news: if the bugs could be fixed, this is a good app. The photos quality are good, and it's fairly easy to navigate. Plus it's free for subscribers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Works fine until it stops working, November 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this not even two years ago, and it has already given up the ghost. For the first say year or so it worked perfectly - my only complaint was that there is no 'auto-feed' button. Well, that and that the system seemed to struggle with about 4-6 pages at a time (even though it's a 10-sheet shredder). But the main problem has come within the last month, when the system decided to stop feeding more than about 1/3 of a page at a time. The online help didn't give me too much advice, but it mentioned that the gears may have been gummed up. I spent time cleaning it extensively (there was a fair amount of paper left in the gears), but no hope. Guess I need another shredder now.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old school, but works well, July 27, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was state-of-the-art back in 1989, but works just as well today. I'm using it to connect an iPod to my car stereo. It takes literally no setup time, the sound quality is surprisingly good, and I haven't had any issues with it. Better value for the money than the >$100 wireless radio connectors for an iPod.
