5.0 out of 5 stars There is one thing it can't do., March 25, 2014
Even if if you buy this multitool you still will never get the straight piece you need to finish a Tetris.

5.0 out of 5 stars There may be something in the water they used to mix this., November 27, 2013
Just a warning, I put this on and for the rest of the day I thought I was D'Artagnan and my friend kept calling himself "Captain" and tried to disable the engine on my car.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electrician's Tool Bag, March 21, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is the ultimate electrician/electronics tool bag. It's big enough to hold the most common tools, but not so big that it weighs you down.

The "tackle box" that comes with it fits snugly in the center, perfect for wire nuts, spade terminals, ring connectors, butt splices and much more.

It has two large tool areas on either side of the pieces box, the bottom of the tool areas fold up for storage/shipping but when folded down are quite sturdy. Each tool area has 1 side pocket and one side strap. One of the tool areas has multiple small straps for tall tools like screwdrivers or wrenches, while the other side has pockets ideal for wire strippers, pliers, crimps, and cutters.

The outside of the bag has a small pouch with a Velcro cover, two more pockets and a large zipper pouch. In addition there is a clip specially made for the tape measure, and a strap ideally suited for your electrical tape. Finally there is one additional loop clip that I haven't entirely figured out what it was made for. If anyone figures it out, I would like to know.

The bag comes with a shoulder strap and carrying handles and it is very durable cloth material.

Overall this is a wonderful bag, while you shouldn't expected it to hold everything, you can carry all of the basics quite easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy these and nothing else., March 5, 2013
These are the best manual wire strippers on the market today. They cut through the sheathing like butter, but don't cut the wire improperly. With good care and proper use (Copper use only) they will last a very long time with no need for sharpening.

1.0 out of 5 stars Linked Slots makes for a bad charger., February 10, 2012
I bought one of these before I really knew better. If you are going to use rechargeable batteries, get yourself a good quality charger with independent slots. Chargers like this one have all of their slots linked (though the 9 volts are separate from the AA/AAA in this model). When one battery gets full, the entire charger stops charging leaving the other 3 incomplete.

Furthermore, this charger only gives you the ability to top off the charge. A good charger will allow you to perform a top off charge and at the very least a Forming Charge/Break In. I suggest a Higher end La Crosse or Powerex charger instead of anything made by Energizer. You can still use Energizer brand batteries.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty boring game., January 5, 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Scrabble Slam Cards (Toy)
It's just not very fun.

Scrabble Slam is simple to play.

1. Use the cards to make a 4 letter word at random.
2. Shuffle and pass out all the remaining cards.
3. Take turns changing the 4 letter word, 1 letter at a time, pass if you can't.
4. First person to use all their cards wins.

The problem is, it's too easy to form a 4 letter word. Basically the first person to play (left of the dealer) is already the winner.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too competitive, January 5, 2012
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pit Card Game (Toy)
This game is fun, but too competitive. The problem with the game play of Pit is that it all happens in real time. Unlike most card games where you take turns around the table, Pit has all the players throwing cards around simultaneously in a 'race to the finish' fashion. With this game play style, the rules get forgotten, cards get damaged, and people get upset. There are groups of people that can play this game, but with most people you will find that maintaining order is a chore and the game just becomes less fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flawed multiplayer design., December 20, 2011
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
This game could be a really good kids game but it is built upon a flawed process. During Multi player games, the 4 characters are tethered together. The group must move as a whole, and can not progress without doing so. Previous series that attempted this, such as Lego Star Wars, later realized the error of their ways and in later games (Lego Harry Potter) they moved to a split screen method. Unfortunately Disney did not do their research this time. The tethering makes for a very frustrating multi player game. Bad multi player doesn't always mean a nail in the coffin. Games, such as the aforementioned Lego Star Wars, are able to stand on their single player alone. However, this game is entirely designed to be a multi player game. Like playing 1 player You Don't Know Jack, the single player function of this game is completely pointless. Overall, this game is a great idea and a sadly missed opportunity.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but subject to interference, December 2, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The product works as intended. I can definately tell the difference between the 480p and 480i. The only slight problem with this is the cable is not shielded well and thus subject to interference. In my case I get a 1/2 second black screen every time the air conditioner/heater turns on. Not the end of the world, but it is a bit annoying at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good controller for the price, but not perfect., April 21, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Komodo Shockwave Wireless controller for Wii and Gamecube does everything it says it will. It's wireless, has all the standard Gamecube controls, and it's cheap. It works well with the Wii, I can't attest to the Gamecube. It's not licensed by Nintendo, but that doesn't make it bad, it just means that the manufacturer didn't fork over a bunch of cash to Nintendo to use their logo. That is why it's cheap.

I used the controller and one set of generic batteries to play all the way through The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker with 100% completion (having never played it before, I had to explore to get everything). The LED started flashing just before finishing, this indicator means the batteries are getting lower and rumble features can't be maintained but the controls themselves lasted through Ganondorf's end. Personally I considered it to be fair battery life considering the length of Zelda games and how many mini games there are to perfect.

There is one flaw. I have never played a Gamecube before so I can't compare to the original, but compared to my XBOX 360 controller the analog stick is just a little hyper sensitive. This is especially annoying when trying to aim the bow, boomerang, grappling hook or hook shot in Wind Waker. It's not to a point that it is unusable. It does adds an extra challenge, especially when aiming the tools quickly and accurately is important such as boss fights.

All in all it it's a pretty good product for the price, well worth it if you are only looking at catching up on a few Gamecube games you missed while you were off playing the last generation's top selling console.
