Great! Replaced original shocks on a 2006 Civic. Completely restored the feel to the rear end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great daily-driver brakes, February 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For my last 3 brake jobs, I've used Akebono ProAct ceramic pads. I love that they're dead quiet, last forever, and produce very little dust, but I hate the lack of initial bite. To me, it almost feels like there's air in the brake lines. (I flushed twice the first time I used them. Then I found out that's just how they feel.) Also, I was warping rotors faster than running through the pads themselves.

This time, I decided to go with the Ultimax. They're great! It's a really nice OEM feel. Even though this is EBC, these are not racer pads.

Caveats:
Dust! After 250 miles, there's still quite a bit of it. The EBC site says to expect this until nearly 1,000 miles. (I just bedded mine in, so maybe that will fix some of it.)

Speaking of which, the install procedure is to put them in, brake softly for the first 200 miles, and then do a regular bed-in. (hard brake 60-10mph five times) The special coating gives good performance out of the box, but makes the pads a wee-bit grabby/over-responsive. After I bedded mine today, the response is perfect. Silky smooth.

If you like the feel of sport pads or you like to show off your spotless rims, these might not be for you. If you want a great feeling daily-driver pad, I don't think it gets any better than these.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great., May 27, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Old review: For the money, these are pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but worth the low price. The fit is slightly large in the arms. The product photo is exactly what you're getting. Definitely not athletic fit. Depending on the color you choose, the torso can be a little short. (I don't know why.) The quality of cotton is OK. The thickness is very good, but the cheap combing process makes them scratchy out of the bag. The construction seems very good. Double seams all around.

Edit: After a few weeks to wear in, these shirts just get worse. The cotton feels worse with every wash. The fit stays the same, which is bad. These shirts don't absorb sweat. It just pools against your skin, feeling disgusting. Even for the price, not a good shirt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good grenadine-esque on the cheap, May 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There are ways to get true grenadine inexpensively, but not for this price. Someone would have to be standing two feet away from you, and know what they are looking for, to tell the difference. The woven silk used is a very nice, weighty material. I think the 3" width is perfect, but they have a skinny version as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great basic metronome, January 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the money, this is a great metronome. The build quality is very good. All of the dials and switches feel solid and work smoothly. I've owned two DB-90 Dr. Beats, and the build quality was terrible, so this is refreshing to find on a low cost model.

Like most quartz metronomes, it doesn't have beat subdivisions, but it does have a volume control. It's not quite as loud as some other quartz metronomes, but still much louder than a digital. It also has two beat pitches. This is helpful when the frequency of your instrument blends too much with the metronome, making it difficult to hear. There are two reference pitches as well. A for orchestra or guitar tuning, and B-flat for band. The strobe light is just the right size and brightness for me.

If you're looking for a well built, basic metronome, this one is very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great looking and well made, December 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
... but not as comfortable as I would've liked. The original suede version may be a bit softer. Still, they look like a million bucks, and as long as you don't actually hike in these, they're great.

2.0 out of 5 stars Sticky suction cup, December 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The suction cup sticks TOO well. It ripped out a chunk of my dash when I tried to remove it. Also, with heavier phones like the 4s, it bounces around like crazy. However, it hasn't ever dropped my phone, so it's got that going for it. Maybe this works better for different vehicles/phones.

This makes a very good cage liner. It has a warm and cool side for different seasons. I've washed mine probably six times now, and it's holding up fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, December 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a great pillow! It's heavy and dense, but very squishy and soft. It feels like a giant marshmallow, but softer. The two things I hate about memory foam, heat retention and smell, are solved by this pillow. The ventilation holes make it the coolest memory foam pillow I've tried, and the green tea completely eliminates any foam odor.

I don't know if I'd recommend this for stomach sleepers, but it's unbeatable for back and side sleepers.
