5.0 out of 5 stars Works great and installs in a single lunch break!, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These lights provide fantastic task lighting for my counter, were easy as pie to install, and are clearly made of quality components. High grade steel, thick diffuser glass, and durable switches all tell me I will be using these in my kitchen for many years without a problem.

I used these to replace under-cabinet fluorescent tubing and it could not have been simpler, requiring nothing but a measuring tape, power screwdriver, and 20 minutes per fixture (more for the first one, then you can connect via the modular cables).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun grown up toy, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Wonderful office toy, as it has the agility to navigate the cube farm. Not so wonderful in any sort of wind. Only downside was that mine shipped without a manual, which led to much frantic googling and several crashes before the trimming procedure was mastered.

Has taught seven different officemates how to fly so far and only lost one prop in the process (it ships with four extras, conveniently numbered for easy replacement). Note, it does not ship with a tiny screwdriver to replace the props with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully durable toy rocket, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
One of my two year old's favorite all-time presents. He plays with it almost daily, disregarding many other toys that have batteries, flashing lights, or rather more detail (his father has a weakness for detailed construction equipment). It seems sized perfectly as a rocket ship for Fisher Price little people too!

The Green Toys Rocket has survived multiple flights down the stairs, a few baths, and countless hours of play. The plastic is very high quality, with no obvious weak points. The details of the thrusters and lander pod are wonderful and aid in imaginative play. My only complaint is that the two astronauts can be crammed into the top module in such a way as to make getting them out a chore even for adult fingers

4.0 out of 5 stars Great kite for two people, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this kite as a lightning deal thinking it would be a wonderful entry level stunt kite to play with at the beach. Well, it is certainly a stunt kite, but I don't know if I would call it entry level. I am by no means a pro, but I have some physical dexterity. Even after reading the manual multiple times, it requires a steady stiff wind and an agile helper to get this kite airborne.

Once in the air, it's incredibly responsive and pulls like a strong dog on my forearms. It is very compact when not in use, allowing me to keep it in my car in hopes of flying it whenever the wind calls, however I cannot seem to master the knack of solo launching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stays on baby's feet, February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The only booties that stay on my infants feet. We purchased these for our second child after it became apparent that he was going to defeat all socks and lesser booties. They have been a godsend. His little toes stay warm even in the cold of the "Siberian Express" and when we put him to bed in the evening, the these booties are right where we left them that morning, on his feet.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the movie, but not the best prose., February 20, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Kyle's book makes for a riveting read, chronicling his time back and forth to Iraq and training to join the SEALS. The prose is punchy, but the narrative is disjointed. The vignettes are in a loosely chronological order that certainly make sense when read together, but the chapter breaks come from nowhere.

I particularly enjoyed the look into the life of a SEAL-hopeful as well as his clear descriptions of the comradery and competitive nature that makes special forces, well, special.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful roguelike, August 29, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wayward Souls (App)
Much richer than the average roguelike, while still featuring permadeath and accrue with repeated play. Well balanced and tons of replay given that death resets the level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Requires at least a 1.5A charger, July 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This charger works very well with my qi enabled devices, though if I forget to plug it into a charger that outs out at least 1.5A of current(I'm looking at you, iPhone charger) , it shuts down after 15 minutes of charging.

I would give it 5 stars, but the LED is way too bright for evening use.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to the standards of other Cooks Illustrated cookbooks, June 7, 2014
While the recipes I've tried from this book are all easy to put together, the majority of them haven't had the same level of flavor as I've come to expect from Cooks Illustrated.

Other reviews mention that many have abbreviated cooktimes, which doesn't bother me, as I eat lunch at home most afternoons, but I cannot forgive the lackluster flavors that many of these recipes put up with.
