1.0 out of 5 stars READ The Policy Carefully - The Deductible And Shipping May Exceed Price Of New Phone, July 6, 2014
Read the policy carefully. The deductible and shipping costs may exceed the price of a new phone. For example, the LG L70 sells new at the MetroPcs website for $49 with free shipping and a full 12 month warranty. The Assurant plan costs $20 and has a $25 deductible for a total of $45 PLUS shipping.

So, for a $50 phone, it is cheaper to simply buy a new phone. Also, an LG phone has a free 12 month warranty that covers all factory defects, although drop damage and water damage is NOT covered.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Waste of Money - Reprints the Data From the FREE College Board Website, June 20, 2014
The College Board has a free website with detailed profiles of every American college that are updated every August. The Barron's Profiles are a summary of the information that the College Board provides for free. Don't waste your money. Simply go to the College Board website for the most up to date information about each college.

To go beyond numbers and learn about the personality of each college, look at books that focus on what makes a college different than its peers...how is Skidmore College different than its neighbor, Union College? The best books that focus on the personality of each college are the Tanabe Guide to Colleges, the Princeton Review Guide to Colleges, and the Fiske Guide to Colleges. Each provides a slightly different viewpoint, so reading all three can be helpful.

But, it is essential to visit colleges. A book can help you decide which colleges to visit, but only by visiting and meeting students and spending time on campus can you find the college that feels like the best fit for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monk - The Best TV Detective Ever, June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Monk: Season 2 (DVD)
If you are a Monk fan, you need this DVD set (along with Season One, Season Three, etc.) If you are not a Monk fan, watching this DVD set will convert you. The set includes a Spanish language and closed captions options.

4.0 out of 5 stars Monk - The Rare Detective Show Worth Rewatching (And Rewatching), June 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Monk: Season 1 (DVD)
Monk is addictive. If you watch Season One, you will want Season Two, than Season Three. You have been warned.

This DVD set includes the full episodes (which have sometimes been edited on broadcast TV to add more commercials). It does not include any of the extensive extras that some DVD box sets include. It does have options for Spanish and sub-titles.

If you are a Monk fan, you want this DVD set. If you are new to Monk, this set will convert you into a Monk addict.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Dual Layer Case For LG L70 & LG Exceed 2, June 7, 2014
The inner layer of soft rubber and hard outer shell combine to provide good protection against drop damage.

The case is slim and attractive and about half the weight of the typical dual layer case. Its soft materials and soft touch paint provide a more secure grip on your phone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Light Dual Layer Case, June 7, 2014
This vendor sells several styles of cases for the LG L70. My favorite is the Mesh Hybrid case that combines a sift rubber inner layer with a hard outer shell of perforated plastic. The outer shell is coated with soft touch paint to provide a more secure grip on your phone.

Dual layers provide good protection against drop damage yet this case is slim and light. Different vendors sell the Mesh Hybrid case in a variety of colors. White does not remain white long in your jeans pocket.
