5.0 out of 5 stars It was extremely easy to install on the very first try, August 24, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have installed many screen protectors on smartphones and tablets, and it's mostly either been a nightmare or I've had to settle for mediocre results (often both). This screen protector was a very welcome exception! It was extremely easy to install on the very first try.

But the biggest surprise was that, despite its thickness, it seems to have made my screen MORE responsive to touch (how is that possible?), and it does not interfere at all with the S Pen stylus - have not noticed any difference whatsoever. Also lives up to the "no fingerprints" claim.

So, very satisfied with purchase. Definitely worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!, August 12, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
VERY IMPRESSED!

Best features: 1. BATTERY LIFE. Charged for about 20 minutes after opening the box to get to 100% and used for about 2 hours after setup. I was amazed to see battery life still showing 9 hours plus remaining. Of course I assumed the meter was inaccurate, but boy was I wrong. This machine just kept going and going...the meter was right on, and much of my use was during daytime with the screen at about 75%-80% brightness.

2. TOUCH-PAD. I've been around computers since the punch-card days and used all sorts of interface devices. This touch-pad is by far the finest I have ever seen. It's extra large, and two-finger scrolling is smooth and absolutely flawless - very responsive with zero hangups. Keyboard is also has a very nice feel to it.

3. QUALITY of construction - it just feels very well made. Played around with the Acer Chromebook, and this feels much more solid, despite being slightly lighter.

4. SOUND is of decent quality and almost TOO LOUD in a quiet room. I find myself having to turn it down...truly shocking! How did they do that?

This machine does everything Google extremely fast (dedicated Chromebook servers?), in fact it opens Gmail, Google Docs and Youtube faster than my Core i5 desktop. The only freeze-ups I've had were watching Netflix after launching the Netflix app (froze 2x). But by simply going to the Netflix website and watching normally, works fine. Perhaps an App update needed?

A few minor cons: 1. Other comments about the cover being a fingerprint magnet are true. But hey, they do wipe off. 2. Screen is good for this price level, but you do need to be looking at it pretty much head on - narrow viewing angle.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT LITTLE DRIVE - HANDY FEATURES!, July 22, 2014
Going strong for a few months now. The magnet feature is incredibly handy, since I've either lost other small USB drives or had to hunt around under folders and papers to find them. This one will attach to the nearest metal surface, like a desktop computer case or file cabinet.

Not a speed daemon, but not slow either...probably slightly above average compared to other USB 2.0 drives. Fast enough to boot and run Linux or other tools live. It gets the job done and is small enough to leave plugged in to my laptop when traveling.

Plastic construction, but seems sturdy enough. Haven't tested out the waterproof feature. My guess is, with the exposed contacts, you might have to be careful how put it on a key-chain if you keep your keys in your pocket. Don't think keys or change rubbing against contacts would be good for it...maybe responsible for some of the failure reports. Personally, I'd go for a metal drive for a key-chain. I have another Silicon Power drive I use for that...this one stays at the home, office or plugged into my laptop.

2.0 out of 5 stars WHAT???, July 4, 2014
Needs some serious improvements in writing if I am to bother tuning in to another episode. This one was 52 minutes of boring, predictable, thematic, disaster genre (can't get out of the parking garage? Who cares?), followed by a few minutes (near the end) that actually had potential...maybe a sliver of hope, but not optimistic.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Can't say enough about the quality and optical performance of these binoculars. As a longtime Nikon SLR camera user, I was expecting high quality optical glass, but was still very pleasantly surprised. I can't believe Nikon got such great glass and a wide field of view into such a small, light, rugged package!

They capture a lot of light which gives a nice, bright view even during twilight hours, and the rubberized coating provides a very comfortable non-slip feel. They also feel pretty much indestructible - nice to know since they'll be going rock climbing.

8x30 is also perfect for me. Didn't want to lug around anything bigger/heavier, and with narrower FOV (e.g., 8x22 which they replaced) I spent too much time hunting for objects, especially moving ones, and they weren't nearly as bright.

So, very happy with purchase. Will be putting these to the test on Safari in August (second time), where a quality pair of rugged binoculars can definitely make a difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars FLAWLESS! LIKE MEMORY SHOULD BE.., June 10, 2014
I recently purchased more of this this memory on sale for an Intel i3 machine. Had been running it for over a year on an AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz AM3 machine with SSD, without a hitch. A few months in, no problems with the i3 machine either (both running WIN 7 64-bit). Seems fast and able to handle heat well. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT. NOW CHANGE THE CONTAINER!, February 19, 2014
This is the best tasting honey I've ever had, and I've tried a lot. Another thing that WAS great about it was that it hardly ever crystallized, even for those of us in northern climes with cool kitchens.

Recent batches, however, crystallize rather easily. That alone does not concern me, because failure to crystallize can be a sign of excessive processing/overheating. BUT, any thickening or crystallizing in this container makes getting the honey out VERY difficult (forget about squeezing). I have resorted to cutting open the container and transferring it to a jar. It's a messy task, but you only have to do it once. You can try digging it out with a spoon, but due to the narrow spout it's a sticky mess every time, after you've gotten the honey near the top.

So, Ambrosia Honey Company, help us fight sticky hands, utensils and counter-tops. You've got a great product here. Package it in a user-friendly jar and it will be perfect.

I ordered this before it was available as a Prime item and it took three weeks to get here from China. BUT, it was worth the wait. Very nice case and fits perfectly. You won't be disappointed.

Yeah, it's a cable. But it appears very well made for the price, and easily streams any load of data thrown at it. Good deal.

3.0 out of 5 stars OVERCOOKED!, November 23, 2013
Good plot and worth watching, but could have been so much better if the writers weren't trying WAY to hard to be edgy. The hard drugs and crude sexual references add little to the storyline, unless the target audience is 21 and under. The NERD and the semi-psycho, too-cool guy are WAY overdone. Back it off a few notches and make the characters more interesting and likeable and it could turn out great.
