Run of the mill. Worked OK until pop up ads between games started freezing the app between games every fourth or fifth time asked for new deal. Uninstall.

1.0 out of 5 stars Original and a replacement pair worked great initially, but both stopped working in about a month., April 28, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have tried two of these. If I had posted a review after a few weeks with either pair, it would have been five stars.

Each of them worked great for a while, but stopped working after about a month of moderate use. When I tried recharging, the indicator light turned blue in seconds, indicating a full charge, but I couldn't get them to turn on or to enter pairing mode. The manual, which is very poor, gave no clue as to what might be wrong. I was exercising and the ear pads were slightly damp, so they may be unable to handle moderate perspiration.

Amazon customer service was great about quickly sending a replacement for the first failed set. I haven't decided whether to try again or give up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad writing and 2 laughable poker errors in first game description, April 27, 2015
This review is from: The Game Master (Kindle Edition)
Any book that has a player in a serious poker tournamen say "I call and raise you x dollars" knows nothing about serious poker and hasn't bothered to find an editor who does. Even in a low stakes casino game, as soon as you say I call, that's it. You have called and cannot raise on the same turn. This is to prevent a player from calling, noticing his opponent's reaction, and then deciding whether and how much to raise. Any professional dealer would disallow the raise and treat it as a call. The later discussion of strategy and tells would be laughable in a penny ante game.

The writing was so bad I couldn't get past 25 pages. I'm not surprised that other reviewers found beginner level errors in the chess scenes. Bad writing happens, but if you're going to title a book with games central to the plot, know the rules or have an editor who does.

1.0 out of 5 stars Downloaded without permission - slowed my Fire HD to a crawl., December 24, 2014
This review is from: The Washington Post (App)
I know that Amazon's CEO bought the Post, but didn't know that meant his new toy would be dumped onto my Fire. I don't want it. To make matters worse, the technical performance is even worse than the drivel its reporters produce. It frequently froze my Fire HD and is a big drain on the battery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent results so far and you can't beat the price., November 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The battery arrived within 2 days. A sticker on the plastic envelope containing it had a stock number and the word "new." While I cannot be sure that it is a new, OEM battery, the label appears authentic, the battery looks new and it is greatly outperforming the 27 month old original battery in the Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) phone I purchased in early July, 2012.

I have been getting roughly eleven hours on a charge, including a couple of hours of listening to Audible books, maybe 45 minutes on the web (WiFi off), checking email maybe 60 minutes on the phone and several text messages. Not bad for $10!

I figured this was a gamble, given the high percentage of one star reviews that reported receiving beat up old batteries that performed poorly. My $10 gamble certainly paid off.

Close within seconds of signing in on my Kindle Fire HD. No problem with other apps, including Facebook, Netflix on that device or accessing Twitter on other devices, including Android phone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very bright., June 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The motion detection works fine, but the light is pretty weak. I don't think it is powerful enough to be an effective security device, unless you buy a lot of them. Pretty good as a convenience or safety light.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accurate and good value., June 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like the fact that I can just step on it - no need to tap or re-calibrate. It is very easy to read the large, bright numbers, even in low light. It seems accurate - consistent with my readings at the doctor's office.

I wear these a lot as outerwear. The pocket is perfect for carrying my activity tracker (Fitbit One). The colors are very nice - evenly dyed, holds up through many washings and nice variety.
