5.0 out of 5 stars The customer is not always right..., June 2, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ok, I wanted a cheap rack for my shorts and I bought this with trepidation given the bad reviews. Having received it I'm very happy with it. I'd make these points:

- You will not get the "winged" version with the top bar coming out at the sides which appears in some pictures.
- When you put it together you need to use some force: there are no screws or bolts or whatever and the metal bits fit snugly and securely into their holes, but you have to force them right in.
- It has its limitations if you want to put may lbs of junk on it, I'm using it for shirts. I'd guess it will take about 30lbs or so of clothes distributed evenly.
- For added stability don't mount the wheels.
- The bars used in this product are quite wide and sturdy.

A lot of the reviews here are a bit over the top. This is perfectly decent quality for the price (I paid $16.50) but you have to put it together properly. If you are enfeebled in some way you might want to find someone to help you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, January 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is very good bread. It has a great texture and doesn't dry out as quickly and has better flavour as comapred to Hodgson Mill Honey Whole Wheat Bread Mix, 16-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6). I make it with olive oil and it comes out moist an delicious. The only downside is that it's a bit more expensive, but worth the cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect, January 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm so glad I ignored the negative reviews here. This shower curtain ticks all the boxes:

- it's fabric with an attractive stripe design so it doesn't trap water or stick to you when you touch it
- strong steel eyelets
- weighted hems so it drapes nicely and doesn't billow

In response to the negative reviews here:

- if you have a problem with rust or mildew, don't complain about this product, ventilate your bathroom properly.
- I don't get water penetrating the fabric, but it will soak through. It's fabric, after all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Attractive and practical, January 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These containers have all the benefits of glass and have practical plastic covers but best of all they are have a very simple and attractive design which makes them great to use as small serving dishes (if you forget about the lids, which are rather ugly plastic). At under $3 a container, delivered, that counts as a steal. One star removed because the of rumoured change in chemistry and resulting toughness which seems to be true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great machine from Apple, April 17, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is my umpteenth Mac and as usual, it's a very satisfying purchase. Although the styling of this laptop, with the dark hinge and keyboard isn't quite my cup of tea (and is a matter of taste), this machine is far and away the most solidly built. It feels like it would stop a bullet, and it probably could. It's reassuring rigidity gives it a feeling of quality and sturdiness second to none. For someone who man handles his laptop all day every day, this is very important.

To be seen over the next months and years is if the reliability of the machine is as good as its build quality.

One final, off-topic note on delivery: Amazon service has been excellent. Yes, their systems are not perfect, but their customer service has made up for it. I originally got an inexplicable delivery date, but a call fixed that.
