4.0 out of 5 stars Very handy for the living room, May 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Battery life seems pretty good so far (1 month). Has a power button to wake the computer from the couch.
CON: It's very easy to hit the up arrow instead of the Shift key.

3.0 out of 5 stars Marvin, December 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This device reminds me of the depressed robot from the Hitchhikers Guide. It works well sometimes, but seems to have a mind of its own. Don't ask it to make tea or mute the television while you're knitting. It might ignore you, or worse, activate the improbability drive.

4.0 out of 5 stars It works, December 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's a battery. It's a battery for a device that you have to crack open, un-solder, re-solder and re-assemble, which I managed to do with minimal hassle (after buying the tiny torx bits). Not for everyone, but it made my father-in-law happy, so I say go for it. Not for those timid with the soldering iron, because you can easily fry the circuit board. Also, double-sided tape is the magic medium used to secure the battery. Work slowly with a plastic implement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprising, December 30, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm very happy with the toasting performance (but not durability) of these bags; I thought they would steam the bread, but they actually toast up very well. Just be careful not to get gluten crumbs from the outside of the bag onto your plate! Grilled cheese worked great, but make sure to clean them out thoroughly, unless you like the taste of burnt cheese. FYI, I used Udi's (gluten free) white sandwich bread in the West Bend Quik Serve Toaster.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Wireless Enabled" is a bit deceptive, March 29, 2010
I bought this unit to replace a failing DVD player and was particularly interested in the internet options (Netflix and Amazon Video on Demand).
While the box and the specs say that this player is "WiFi-Enabled" and that it has a USB port for this purpose, it is only noted in the manual (after you unpack it) that you can ONLY use Panasonic's wireless USB adapter ($99) with this device!
Fortunately, I had a Netgear XE102 ethernet extender on hand to avert full-scale mutiny at our house.

Besides that, I'm very happy with the picture quality of both DVD and Netflix upscaling.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not have Viera Cast capability, March 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just wanted to warn others that, despite the product description, this unit does NOT have any Viera Cast connectivity options (wired or wireless). For the price, I'm not surprised -- and I needed a new DVD player, so I figured it would be a bonus if true. Other than that, it seems solid. I've only had it a day, the 1080p upscaling looks good and the remote is a little awkward.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the casual/new fan of The Who, August 27, 2009
This review is from: The Who At Kilburn: 1977 (DVD)
I'd highly recommend watching the 2nd disc first. The '69 footage, while really visually bad, shows the band approaching their zenith as a live act. The whole band is having fun and breaking ground performance-wise.

The Kilburn (disc 1) show is interesting for historians/completists -- Pete seems put off about the show right from the start, attacking a roadie on the 2nd or 3rd song and glaring at his band-mates. It ends up good enough, but in my opinion, Pete was in full "I'm carrying the band" (real or imagined) mode and tired of doing the same damn songs for the last umpteen years, while the "big-mouthed little gits" (aka punk rockers) were challenging his/their throne.

For those who are complaining about the bass -- adjust your subwoofer -- this was not recorded (30-odd yrs ago) for your 5.1 action-hero-smash-car-movie mode system. Also remember that Pete and John actively conspired with their respective amp builders to out-do each other, culminating in the "loudest concert ever". In a band with lead guitar, lead bass, lead drums, and lead vocals, there's bound to be an impossible balance day to day, and perhaps the dominant bass was true to form for that show.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perspective, with Chocolate Cake, June 1, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A lot of the recipes in this book are just normal/good food, but that's important when faced with a restricted diet. When you find you can't have something, it's hard to think about what you CAN have.

The Chocolate-Walnut Cake is practically worth the price of the book.

I like that it's written by a seasoned food writer who just recently had to eliminate wheat, which sets it a world apart from life-long wheat-free cookbook authors who can't remember or don't know what really good pastry/crepes/etc taste like.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious snacking, December 5, 2008
with no 'funny' ingredients! These are WAY better than the pickled sausages I got at the corner grocery when I was a kid. I like the hot ones even better.
