1.0 out of 5 stars Won't hold a charge., March 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I installed them into a Norelco razor. They charged up and I was able to use the razor as long as the razor was plugged in. When I unplugged the razor, however, the razor ran for about one second and the batteries were completely dead. They simply didn't hold a charge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and durable., January 8, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wear a size 15, which limits my selection of hiking boots. I tried two other brands before I bought these. The first ones made my feet sore after about 5 miles. The second turned my big toe nail black. These were comfortable from the minute I put them on. I've worn them now on about 20 hikes in the Rockies for distances of between 8 to 13 miles. I've also worn them on a couple of snow shoe hikes. They're comfortable, durable, and were less expensive than the others I tried. A great value.

1.0 out of 5 stars Promotes A Dangerous Panacea, December 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just watched "Forks Over Knives," and, in my opinion, I found it to be full of half-truths, over-simplifications, falsehoods, and bad science. Without going into details, they lump meat in with junk food, and then take four fat, sedentary human train wrecks who for years have subsisted on fast food and Red Bull, and replace their diets with fresh fruits and vegetables and get them exercising and, viola! their health has improved dramatically. No surprise there. Contrary to what the movie claims, meat and proteins in general having nothing to do with diabetes, which any health professional will tell you is related to sugar intake, and sugar is a carbohydrate. Also, one of the "nutrition experts" asserts that genetics plays no role in disease. That is, quite frankly, nonsense. We know that some people are predisposed to certain diseases based on their genetic make up. That's not myth, it's proven science and medicine.

If you believe in Darwin, evolution, and the concept that organisms evolve to adapt to their environment to survive, then you know we are supposed to eat meat. Homo sapiens have evolved over the last 4 million years as hunters and gatherers, eating a protein-based diet of meat and fish along with fruits, vegetables, and nuts limited to what was available locally and in season. Farming is a practice that's only been around for the last 20,000 years, and 20,000 years is a drop in the bucket in terms of 4 million years of evolution. Want more proof? Open your mouth and look at your teeth. Those four pointy ones in the front corners are called cuspids and are designed for biting into and tearing flesh. Now, look at animals in nature. The ones that naturally eat meat and fish--lions, tigers, bears, wolves, dogs--have them. Animals that eat only plants--rabbits, horses, cows, bison, sheep, squirrels--don't have them. (Also, the former don't watch bad movies that tell them they're eating the wrong stuff.) BTW, Inuits are people indigenous to the Arctic Circle and eat a traditional diet high in protein and fat and zero plants and yet have a low incidence of heart disease. Go figure.

Finally, of all the things in this movie that I take issue with is the stupid, dangerous, and irresponsible message that you can cure yourself of cancer by merely by changing your diet to a plant-based one. I'd be willing to bet it was the reason why Cornell University "marginalized" that doctor in this movie. He should have been fired, but he was probably tenured, so that was impossible. Case in point, Steve Jobs was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. A diagnosis of pancreatic cancer is, in most cases, a virtual death sentence. Mr. Jobs, however, had a rare, operable form of the cancer that has a high cure rate. Mr. Jobs, unfortunately, decided to go with a holistic, whole-foods approach to a cure. After nine months, the cancer continued to progress, and he eventually relented and underwent the surgery. By that time, the cancer had spread to other organs, which led to a liver transplant and, well, you know the rest of the story.

I bought this for my Dell Dimension 4550. It was easy to install and arrived super fast. Excellent reception - the router is upstairs and the computer is downstairs. Very pleased with the product and service.
