1.0 out of 5 stars Sent mine back immediately and bought something else, July 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Broken form the get go. Very flimsy all plastic construction. Returned immediately to buy something of greater quality. I received an very odly packaged item that maybe was someone else's return is all I can figure.

The length of the flexible part is very short. The smallest phone ever must be in the above picture.

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly solid performer, July 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This inexpensive wireless mouse works well and handles all non-gaming tasks I have handed ti without a problem, I am a fan of the scroll wheel which is often poorly done on other budget mice.

Yet again the AmazonBasics product does a great job.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80's Video-game flashback fun!, July 14, 2015
This review is from: Armada: A Novel (Hardcover)
A great read and tons of fun. Yes, very Last Starfighter-ish, but that is part of the 80's nostalgia Cline is trying to capture in his books.

This book is an homage to video games and sci-fi movies and great fun.

The twist on the end is the type of thoughtful sci-fi commentary so often missing in contemporary books, and does much to redeem an otherwise light romp as a more serious piece of fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars I would buy again. Works well for my needs., April 21, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works great, if a little over sensitive. This is in an entry room/mudroom and we no longer have to use the pull chain to see when we come in. It works well, but may seem a little too sensitive for some.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent HTPC, March 7, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a tremendous home theater PC. I have been able to throw all sorts of high def blue ray rips at it and have them playback perfectly. It streams high def equally well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good shovel for serious ice and snow, February 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a well constructed shovel designed to move heavy snow with precision. I am in the northeast and we are in the middle of a record winter. I used this shovel to carve back the frozen snow banks at the end of the driveway as well as chop down some truely mountainous piles left from snowblowing. It does a great job of both clearing stairs as well as chopping out manageable blocks of ice from that end of the driveway iceberg.

While I do not enjoy shoveling, this shovel makes it easier.

5.0 out of 5 stars A huge safety upgrade, February 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Motion Activated Lights-Set of 3
I received all motion sensor models but can't complain. These do a great job of lighting my stairs. The house had wood floors and everyone has missed the bottom stair at some point. With these new lights it will never happen again. They went up easy and cover quite a bit of area. 3 lights more that sufficiently light a standard stairwell. A quick tip is to mount the lights higher to have them better detect motion.

I was worried that they would look awful, but after a few days they really blend in. In my home they are mounted on a white wall, so your mileage may vary.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent after market snow blower light., February 4, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This was purchased to be a snow blower light. I have had my snow blower for ten years, but when I moved to a new home 18 months ago I ended up with a much darker driveway. I was able to use the head-strap as a mount on the snow blower and now have a great view. This is a very bright light and does a great job. As a plus I can take it off the snow blower and use it on my bike easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars A gear head's dream of obscure autos, December 16, 2014
Banovsky's Weird Cars is a great gift for the car enthusiast who appreciates the more obscure cars with a detailed history. As a subscriber to Banovsky's Car of the Day emails this book is a great opportunity for a gear head to get some real in depth background on a often missed segment of automotive history.

These backgrounds and pictures are a very cool way to indulge someone's love of cars. The articles/chapters are well written and well researched. Definitely fun and informative.
