Neato Pet & Allergy Upgrade Kit
Neato Pet & Allergy Upgrade Kit
Price: $41.63
4 used & new from $39.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Word of caution if you're upgrading an XV-11, January 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have an XV-11 that's around 2 years old, so I bought this upgrade kit a few months ago, extremely excited to install the new firmware and have a quieter brush on my hardwood. Unfortunately, the brush will NOT WORK without the new firmware - it recognizes a different brush/filter and will not vacuum without new firmware. My XV-11, though, is not detected by Neato's firmware updater app on their website. I have followed every bit of advice on their site, I've tried multiple computers with different OSs, etc. The first time I contacted their support, they admitted they were having problems with Windows 8, so I figured I could wait a little bit and I put the upgrade kit in the closet, to come back to later. Then last week I tried again - this time with a clean install of Windows 8.1 - still no joy. So I tried another computer, Windows 7. Then another Win7 machine. I tried 3 different browsers. I tried everything. And support won't help me because the warranty is only good for a year after purchase. Seriously? I've spent over $600 on Neato products, including filters and this upgrade kit. Unless they give and at least TRY to help me or offer me a discounted replacement for my device, I'll be skipping all future Neato products and advising my friends and clients to avoid Neato. Their product is awesome, but it's too expensive to gamble on with support like that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent companion - but it may take some of the joy from the game, July 17, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Trully well done game guide from Prima - they've had plenty of "misses" with their publications recently, but this is an excellent be-all end-all companion book. It's so good, in fact, that it will take some of the joy of discovery out of the game, depending on how you play. If you already know all of the secrets to past Animal Crossing games, then maybe having a reference guide for best times to catch certain fish, and when to get into the Resetti Center is something that can only bring more value and sense of discovery to you. But if you're coming in fresh to the series, maybe do yourself a favor and hold off on pouring over this book until you've got a few months with the game under your belt. I think then, if you pick this up and start reading through it, it will unlock a whole new game for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary for any casual or hardcore fan of arcades, July 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Deserves a place next to other great classic gaming documentaries like Chasing Ghosts, Special When Lit, etc. Lots of interesting human angles on why people collect arcade machines. Great editing and music - definitely worth the rental, or if you're like me, a rental and then immediately purchase the collector's edition bluray.


HORI Nintendo 3DS XL Hard Pouch - Black

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the price, very minimalist case, November 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
No complaints here - the case is exactly what you pay for. The 3DS fits snugly inside, and you've got a "flap" that goes over it. I can easily (without cramming or warping the case) fit my 3DSXL, 6 games (a couple stacked in pairs in the set of 4 sleeves) and a pair of headphones. The case closes with a zipper that pulls nicely all around, and the front and back is protected by a reinforced hard plastic that has just enough "squish" to it that I'm comfortable tossing this into a backpack knowing that the shock is being absorbed.

4.0 out of 5 stars High quality, worth the peace of mind, November 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As you can expect from Ninja, this thing is high quality. No shoddy craftsmanship here. It's worth the price of admission for the peace of mind, but I do wish they'd find a way to lower the price a few bucks. Can't complain about it much, though, considering it's not something you need to buy many of, or more than once. Would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to learn, great family game, can be played with any age groups, November 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nanuk (Toy)
This game has some depth to it, but it's mostly a conversational/bluffing game. Which means it's as easy to play in a family setting as it is with buddies over beers. The premise of the game is always fun to explain to people, and it's a great game if you're the type of person who likes to introduce friends or family to new gaming experiences, especially if they shy away from anything they perceive as being "too complicated" or "too nerdy". Steve Jackson games rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just like OEM, works as expected, can be relied on., November 15, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We've purchased a couple of these units, which are invaluable if you've got an aging computer that's only down because of a bad power supply. They run just like OEM - they're not noisy and don't get too hot. Five stars for providing a quality product at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic value, great packaging, nothing was left out, July 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This set is a must-own for anyone with a 3D TV. While we do own quite a few non-IMAX 3D movies, we've found that the 3D is most effective when captured by the IMAX experts, so we have gravitated to all of these available and are slowly but surely collecting them all. This set is a tremendous value as these movies can be quite expensive individually if you aren't careful. And considering these movies are only about 45 minutes or so each, any extra value is appreciated.

Contrary to what the previous reviewer said, these movies are not packed in on a single disc. The case is of the extra wide variety and there is a swinging disc tray inside to hold the third disc. Yes, there are three - each movie gets its own disc and even includes its own special features, including interesting "making of" featurettes that were shot in HD. And yes, you can also watch these in 2D if for some strange reason you prefer that.

As far as the actual quality of the movies go, it's my opinion that Mummies is the best of the lot, with Wild Ocean taking 2nd place and Dinosaurs Alive trailing a ways behind. Which is mostly to be expected - IMAX movies are good because they're fun to look at and typically have great narration. Wild Ocean and Mummies has some beautiful footage, but Dinosaurs relies on a lot of CG that mucks up the experience some.

Overall, highly recommended set of movies. This deserves to be in any 3DTV owner's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good heavy quality, print was done professionally and looks great, July 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great shirt - was somewhat doubtful that the quality would be there, but it's been through the wash a couple of times already and is in great shape. The print looks fantastic and won't be peeling off or falling apart any time soon. I've gotten compliments on the shirt already.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly good, but wouldn't recommend for very heavy use, July 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I worked as a laser cartridge engineer for several years, and my experience with remanufactured HP toner cartridges (or "compatible" as they call them) has been pretty good. For general use, they are perfectly fine as their small parts have been replaced and the crucial parts (like the drum - the green roller part) are either inspected and approved for second use, or they are re-coated.

The only situation I would recommend using a rebuilt cartridge in is if you are planning on printing large jobs (maybe 50+ pages at a time) as that will cause the cartridge to heat up to very high temps and your performance will be significantly less than a genuine OEM cartridge.
