1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible experience with the product and with the company., April 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Installed router, used the setup wizard. Download speeds were great, around 30Mbps wireless but my upload speeds were around 0.20Mbps wireless and wired. Plugged my laptop directly into my modem and the upload speeds were around 6Mbps, plugged the router back in and back to 0.2Mbps. Verified that the firmware was current, even reinstalled the firmware by downloading it directly from netgear. No change. Contacted Netgear support and their CSR told me not to worry about it and that only the download speed was important! Asked to be transferred to a level 2 tech support specialist, she put me on hold and that was 1 hour ago. Plugged my old draft-N router back in and that will have to do until I get a replacement but NOT FROM NETGEAR

cheap knockoff of slidebelts. Save yourself the time and money and just get a slidebelt instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost as good as the real thing., May 12, 2014
First, pay attention when cooking these. Make sure you have enough water and gently work the noodles with chopsticks or whatever to loosen them. Remove them and cool them with cold running water just before they're fully cooked, the carryover heat will finish cooking them.

The noodles are springy and chewy and taste like a pretty decent quality eggy ramen noodle. No, they're not a 1 to 1 replacement for a traditional ramen noodle but they're very good and have a very good taste and texture.

1.0 out of 5 stars great movie, horible blatant double dip marketing of blu-ray, March 5, 2014
This review is from: Frozen [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Disney is giving frozen a proper 3d release internationally but a 2d only version in the us with an eventual 3d double dip sometime in the future. This recent trend of allocating features and extra content to specific markets or to specific retailer versions needs to stop. Shame on disney for following this cynical marketing strategy.

5.0 out of 5 stars big sound, little box, May 11, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Got this to replace my previous sub that just could go down low enough. This sub can shake the whole room but the sound is still pretty clean and distortion free and isn't boomy at all. Setup is fast and simple and easy enough to dial in and most importantly, because it's small and cute it passes the most critical of all tests... the wife test.

5.0 out of 5 stars believe the hype, March 22, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I just received my TV, set it up and tested it out. First of all, installation was a breeze, camera and mic work beautifully as do the motion controls.

More importantly, the image is perfect. I don't know what these other reviewers are going on about but screen uniformity is phenomenal and on par with any of the other LED LCD tvs I've seen. Blacks are deep and inky and with the backlighting on the factory default, I saw no evidence of flashlighting or light creep.

3D works like a charm. Set the PS3 to recognize the new screen and the new 3D glasses pair with the TV quickly and easily and don't mind at all if I look away from the screen. Tested out Transformers 3D (don't laugh, I have 6 year old son and he loves them) and the image was crisp, detailed with very little artifacting or crosstalk. I fired up wipeout HD 3D and that performed beautifully as well.

For me, it was between this TV and the new Panasonic line up. While I agree that the plasmas handle blacks better than LCD screens, I prefered the image crispness of an LED LCD panel. I am not disappointed and more than happy with the es8000.

1.0 out of 5 stars how about we try treating women ethically?, March 4, 2012
Proflowers say they only buy flowers that are ethically grown, too bad they don't have as much respect for their customers. It's nice to know that they'll stand by hate mongers like Rush while they go about calling socially conscious women "sluts" and "prostitutes". It's nice because it means that I can cross them off the list of potential florists this coming Easter.

ProFlowers, the misogynist's choice.

When you want to call that certain woman in your life a slut; proflowers, the misogynists choice. Thanks proflowers, with so many choices this coming Easter, thanks for making it a little easier for me by removing yourself as an option.

1.0 out of 5 stars garbage, February 5, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The battery fits and it charges just fine but that's where the good ends. Once I disconnected the power supply after fully charging the battery, the laptop suddenly shutdown. No warning, just off. Waited 10 seconds, rebooted the computer. Battery monitor said it was charged and had nearly 2 hours of charge. Then it shutdown again. Stayed up all night like this, trying to drain the battery and do a deep cycle and after it was charged up I tried again. Seemed okay for 30 mins and then it shutdown again. Did another deep cycle and this time the laptop shutdown within seconds of disconnecting the power supply.

Absolute garbage.
