Casio Men's FE10-1A Classic Digital Watch
Casio Men's FE10-1A Classic Digital Watch
Price: $16.92

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price, March 21, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This watch weighs 25 grams and is 9.4mm thick. I have had it for six days and it has lost 1 second, therefore this extrapolates to 61 seconds per year. Nice size display so everything is easy to read, especially the time which is the most important element (imho). Apparently the band does eventually break, but that might be expected for a thin band on an inexpensive watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, February 26, 2014

This unit is quite versatile when you consider you can use Bluetooth, a microSD card or a wire. These weigh 10.3 oz and the Bose QC 15 weigh around 7 oz. The bass is a little more pronounced than the Bose QC 15. When you operate the headphones in the Bluetooth mode you can increase or decrease the volume by holding the plus or the minus. However, when the device is in the microSD mode you have to "click" the plus or minus to change volume. Once you insert the microSD card you do not have to remove it to play using Bluetooth. You can switch back and forth. As someone mentioned in another review when you are using Bluetooth on an iPhone there is a battery icon next to the iPhone Bluetooth indicator showing the battery charge.

Playing from the SD card however introduces a slight ticking sound when the music volume diminishes or in transition. However, most of the time the music overwhelmed the ticking sound and it was not detectable.

I am perfectly satisfied with the headphone music quality and comfort. Other reviews cover the music quality in more detail than I can.
As for me, these headphones are a "keeper!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, it does what it should do, January 9, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was getting a cramp in my left leg sitting on a conventional toilet so I first purchased a foam riser from Walgreen. Problem with this riser was that when you sat on it the foam compressed and I was lucky to get about an inch of rise. The Carex does not compress and you get the total rise as indicated in their material. The unit fits well after you lift the lid and toilet seat and insert. I don't find it wobbles or is unstable. I don't get the cramp anymore in my leg.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price!, November 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This keyboard connected to Bluetooth without any problems. It weighs 8.4 oz. It is easy to type on, however the right shift key is small in length whereas the left shift key is 2.5 times longer. I'm right handed and I usually use the right shift key, so this takes some adjustment. I previously had a Logitech keyboard for my iPad 3 and this VSTN keyboard seems to have the same capability with key functions as the Logitech. There is no magnetic connection between the iPad Air (IPA) and the keyboard, but the IPA sits at a good angle and doesn't wobble in the VSTN slot. When you want to remove the IPA from the slot and place it next to the keyboard making one unit, it snaps firmly into place, but it seems as though after doing this numerous times you might scratch your IPA where the main snap is positioned. Except for travel I probably won't put these two together, which works for me.

For $32.95 this keyboard is a bargain compared to the $100+ units while only making a few sacrifices.

5.0 out of 5 stars This could happen!, August 25, 2013
This review is from: CyberStorm (Kindle Edition)
Seemed entirely possible and behaviors are quite believable. The technology was current with some new possibilities added to the mix. Good character development.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic, June 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a long book and you don't want to put up with the terrible formatting, spelling, etc. I uploaded a picture of one page of this book. Take a look.

I then purchased "Pride and Prejudice (Illustrated Edition) by Jane Austen, Charles Edmund Brock and George Saintsbury (Jun 26, 2013) - Kindle eBook" for an extra dollar and everything is as it should be. Wonderful illustrations are a plus too!

This mount worked perfectly for my Garmin Edge 200. As previous reviews mentioned larger devices fit the mount as well like the Garmin Edge 800. Make sure you have two metric allen wrenches 3.0 and 2.5 for mounting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightning Cable Insertion, January 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This device does not come with a lightning cable or a 30 pin cable. If you want to use a lightning cable, removing the plastic piece that comes inserted into the dock for a 30 pin device is puzzling at first. I found that when you are looking at the device from the front (lower part of circular part of dock facing you) you slide the plastic piece to the right to remove it or turn the device 180 degrees and slide to left. It then becomes obvious how to slide in the lightning cable holder piece into the cradle. Five stars for this cradle!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightweight and compact, December 21, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a perfect case for my iPad Mini. It only weighs 3.9 oz and the material is not bulky. The auto on/off works perfectly. Of course the auto on also eliminates the need to "unlock" the device which is an additional time saver. The iPad Mini is inserted into the case so that the front of the Mini isn't covered by any material. This is the same insert system used on the Kindle Paperwhite case offered by Amazon. However, if you want to take a picture with this case and every other case I have seen you can't have the cover folded back 360 degrees because it covers the camera lens. So it is a challenge to hold the cover partially open and take a picture. Of course this is just something to accept with all covers, unless someone wants to offer one with a hole in the front of the cover that would allow the lens to be exposed when the cover is back 360 degrees!

Just purchased the iPad Air case from this vendor:
This unit weighs 6.4 oz and when added to the 16 oz iPad Air the total equals the weight of the iPad models 1-4 without a case! I have had this same model case on my iPad Mini, since it was introduced last year, and it has worn well and is a holds the Mini properly. The iPad Air fits into this case perfectly and is lightweight as well. Seems to me this is a bargain compared to the iPad Air Smart Case for $79.00! Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not for me., December 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very well manufactured product with a lot of great features. It weighs 6.2 oz. I am accessing my iPad Mini on and off all day, so I like to grab it and start utilizing it. However, with this cover that takes some effort if you are fully closing and opening the cover each time. So here are my comments as relates to the cover and clasp. The clasp holds the cover closed very firmly and you need to push firmly to close the cover. Because it takes some effort to open and close the cover, I often leave it open just short of closed. Other times I prefer to leave the cover at 360 degrees and place the unit on a flat surface, but the clasp doesn't allow the unit to sit flat. One last issue I have with the clasp is when the cover is open 360 degrees the clasp protrudes on the back and it can be annoying when holding the unit. Based on my preferences this case does not work for me, but it may for other individuals. I did give it four stars because it is a very good case, just not for me! I purchased a Poetic SLIMLINE Portfolio Case instead, which better matches my requirements.
