5.0 out of 5 stars A great candy, December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just delicious. Taste quite natural, not too sweet nor have any extraneous flavors. The individual wrapping for each candy is a plus, too.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother., December 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I returned these headphones immediately. The interference was just unbearable - I tried different channels and relocated the base as far as I could from my wireless router - and the earpad material is quite irritating! Besides, the base and the headphones themselves are incredibly cheap-looking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good sound, nice design, Airplay still undercooked., January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I liked the design, the sound quality and the idea of portability. However, the Airplay initial configuration was far from quick and intuitive. The response to any command input from my Mac or the iPhone always took a second or two. Finally, the Airplay disconnected a couple of times, while Pandora and iTunes were playing, the day I had the speaker. I had to restart the speaker to resume play.

By the way, I read the newer reviews and the software update, which is supposed to solve the dropout issues, so I bought the speaker again and updated it. The dropout issues are still present, albeit less frequent.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough, January 12, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My NEX-C3 fits perfectly in this case, even with the flash attached. It is sturdy and well cushioned, but it looks slightly cheap. It is not really black; its color has a slightly red or brown hue, which I do not dig.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not get warm enough, February 9, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This iron is useless, unfortunately. It does not heat enough, so it is impossible to properly iron a cotton shirt, even using steam at maximum. It does not glide smoothly over the clothes, neither.

The construction is bad, too. The plastic creaks all the time.

I tried vertical steaming also. The really small amount of steam coming out is laughable.

I can't believe I did not find anything positive about this product...

2.0 out of 5 stars Impossible to iron cotton clothes, February 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unfortunately, this iron never gets warm enough to iron cotton clothes. Even with steam, you would not be able to iron out the wrinkles on shirts, which will remain clearly visible. I believe a lot of people have the same problem, just check out some other reviews.

On the plus side, the iron glides really smoothly, and the construction is all right. It did not leak, like other reviewers noted.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre, August 24, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This shirt actually looks good, but it ends there. In my case, this 15/34-35/medium sized shirt was anything but medium. While the neck and arm sizes were almost perfect, the trunk size was way too big. It seems to be large or XL, as an another reviewer noted.

I thought it could get it to a tailor, but when I put it on, I realized that the material, which is supposed to be 100% cotton, was crappy and really itchy, way below the quality of any shirts I had recently. Not recommended at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, great design, but no real replacement for 5.1/7.1, August 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It works very well and sounds great, particularly with music. It does not create a believable surround effect, though. For example, in instances when the sound is supposed to come from the rear speakers, with this system it is more like an amplified echo effect, but there is no hint of directionality. Of course, it is not a replacement of a full 5.1 or 7.1 system, but it saves a lot a space and cables.

It connects perfectly with my Bravia TV. In this case, the HDMI control (Bravia Sync) just works. However, I am not able to control my slim PS3 with this system's remote. There might be some incompatibility, because I'm able to do so with the tv's control.

It looks good, and the construction is flawless, as with most Sony products. My advice, though - particularly for gamers, because of the lack of the directionality of the surround sound - is that if you have space for a full home theater system, do no opt for this product. I live in a small apartment, so I had no choice, and this system is great in my case.

This fits perfectly and looks good. It's a little girly, though, because it reminds me a little party purse.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just ok... and I returned it, August 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
In my experience, this tv is just ok, while I expect Sony products to be the best. The menu structure, the remote, the apps (I really don't know why every manufacturer keeps putting an internet connection in their tvs - my blu-ray, has it, my PS3 and Xbox360, too - why do I need to pay for this duplicate function?), the thin design and the build are all right. The image quality is clearly imperfect, however.

First, the blacks have a clear blue tinge. I think it's because of the LED side illumination, because my old XBR4 didn't have this defect.

Second, the viewing angle is bad. As soon as yoy stray from a central viewing position, the blacks begin to wash out significantly. From about a 45 degree angle they become a blueish-gray mess.

I thought I could live with this nuisances, but my tv developed a dead pixel in a week, so I decided to return it. Amazon's service was, of course, top notch.

In exchange I bought a (cheaper) Bravia EX500. In my opinion the image quality is clearly better, beacause of deeper blacks and the perfect viewing angles. I noticed a little more motion blur and you lose the thin frame, the Xross menu system and the internet connection, but I can trade these for image quality anytime.

Now I see you can get the 40' EX700 at $749 everywhere, I guess nobody is buying.
