5.0 out of 5 stars S107g flies like new again!, February 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered from seller "SYMA HELI".

The battery I received works at least as good as the original in my S107g did when it was new.

The battery is the same size and weight, so no balance issues. And just like the original, it also includes the "chip" that protects against over-discharge and over-charging.

Very good battery. Made my S107G fly like new again, for a quarter the price of buying a new helicopter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top Quality, January 7, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MagEyes Magnifier (Kitchen)
Very comfortable and light weight. This model has an overlapping Velcro band at the back, easily adjustable but does have to be re-adjusted if multiple people are using it. Several other Mag-Eyes models just have springy plastic sides (no Velcro) and "self-adjust" from head to head, so you may find them more convenient if shared among more than one user.

The interchangeable lenses are a bit tight, but easy enough to swap and are very clear. Very convenient way to have both hands free when needing magnification.

5.0 out of 5 stars I prefer the Clear, but Anti-Glare is good too., November 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought both the Clear and the Anti-Glare.

Both were excellent quality materials and well made. Easily installed by lining up first and using painter's tape at bottom to make a "hinge" before removing the protective backing. Went on with just a few dust specks which were then easily removed using the included stickers.

I tried the anti-glare first. It does cut the glare and fingerprints are less noticeable, as advertised. But as you might expect, it does cut the sharpness of the display a little bit as well because it gives a "frosted" look to the display in order to achieve the anti-glare property. As you scroll a page, it looks as if it is moving below a layer of fine dust or dirt. It isn't horrible, but I found it distracting. It is a trade-off for less reflection and less noticeable fingerprints.

I ended up removing the anti-glare and installing the clear, again using the painter's tape method. Another easy installation, and this time perfectly clear -- looks like there is nothing on the screen at all.

Both are great products, my personal preference is the clear but it depends on your priorities and whether you are willing to give up a tiny bit of clarity to get the anti-glare properties.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Monitor, Better than U3011 in Every Way, August 1, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After reading quite a few unfavorable reviews about the U3014, I initially ordered the older U3011. The U3011 is a nice monitor, and after a few days' usage I can say that I liked everything about it EXCEPT the heavy anti-glare coating. Maybe my U3011 was defective or something, but the heavy and uneven AG coating made white backgrounds look "dirty" or "grainy". So along with wanting the U3014's newer design with LED backlight and USB3, I decided to ignore the bad reviews and give the 3014 a try since it reportedly has an improved AG coating.

I ordered one "sold and shipped by" Amazon on Jul-31-2013 with overnight shipping, and the next day received a revision A02 unit made in April 2013.

I compared the U3011 and U3014 side-by-side. In my opinion, the U3014 beats the U3011 in every way. I have NONE of the problems mentioned in earlier reviews. The color balance and lighting uniformity are better than the U3011. The touch panel works perfectly. There are NOT any of the "horizontal lines in lower left corner" mentioned in earlier reviews. I *suspect* a lot of the problems in earlier reviews reflected A01 units, and improvements have been made in the now-shipping A02 units.

The U3014's LED backlight runs very cool and uses about 1/2 the power compared to the U3011. Using a kill-a-watt meter, I measured my U3014 at 41watts, compared to the 3011's 83 watts (both set to my preferred brightness level).

But by far, the BIGGEST improvement is the anti-glare coating. I found the AG coating on the U3011 to actually be distracting. It wasn't real noticable on darker backgrounds, but on light backgrounds (including web pages with black text on white background) the U3011 had a horrible "sparkle" that actually made text difficult to read. Moving a windows with a white background on the U3011, the heavy AG coating made it appear that the display was dirty or the backlighting was uneven. I'm happy to say that the U3014 coating is almost perfect. It is more uniform and lighter, enough to cut reflections from surrounding objects, but has almost none of the "graininess" I hated on the U3011.

Regarding the warranty, this unit carries the full 3 year "next business day replacement" warranty when purchased from Amazon (not sure about other sellers operating through Amazon). I went to my Dell account, entered the monitor's service tag, and it was immediately added to my list of devices with slighly more than 3 years warranty remaining.

Beware that this is a "day one" review, and some of the past reviews indicated failures after a couple weeks or a couple months. I will be using this several hours per day, so if there are any problems you can be assured I will be back to update this review. But so far, I am VERY happy with the U3014, and will be returning the U3011.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding card!, July 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I was using an Evga 550ti 2048, and a monitor with 1920x1200 resolution. The 550ti did a great job with that resolution, but I upgraded the monitor to one with 2560x1440 and needed something that could push the additional pixels. The Evga 680 4096 does that and more.

In the box: The Evga 680 4096 card, PCI adapter (8pin PCI male to two 6pin PCI female), molex adapter (Two 4pin molex female to one 6pin PCI female), drive CD, DVI-to-VGA adapter, Evga stickers and badges, Quick Start Guide, User Guide, various information inserts ("PCI Express 3.0 Ready", "Power connection options", 15% off coupon for EVGA power supplies).

The 680 runs slightly cooler than the 550ti. This may be due to the better fan/exhaust design, or the included backplate may contribute as well. With a room temp of 26C, idle temp is 30-31C and under heavy load stays below 66C with fan at 70%. The fan does make some noise at 70%, but it is a fairly low-pitched "wind noise" -- as opposed to the high-pitched "whine" of the 550ti -- so actually seems much quieter than the 550ti. The 680 exhausts ALL its air directly out the back of the computer case, which has actually lowered my cpu/memory temps by about 1-2C as well.

Coming from the 550ti, installation was simple since the installed Nvidia driver (314.22) already includes support for the 680. I uninstalled "Evga Precision" and had it delete existing profiles, shut down the machine, and swapped the cards. Upon logon, there was a "installing drivers" message from Windows7, followed by a message to reboot. After reboot, everything came up working perfectly. About as easy as it gets.

I reinstalled EVGA Precision, and setup a mild overclock (+103MHz on GPU, and +90Mhz on memory). Ran tests at 99-100% load for 30 minutes and all was well -- no artifacts, and temps below 66C. Single-monitor game performance is also outstanding, even at 2560x1440 (Skyrim, Borderlands2, TombRaider, FalloutNV).

There are several "factory overclocked" versions of this card for a few dollars more. However, the Evga and Nvidia forums contain a lot of posts from people having trouble with recent drivers (320 series) when above reference speeds. I decided I would rather have a "reference" card (which overclocks fine with 314 series drivers), just in case future Nvidia drivers do in fact require reference speeds at boot.

Add the 3-year warranty from EVGA, known for providing great support, and I don't think you can go wrong with this card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent choice, July 10, 2013

This review is from: Eastern Bikes Cone Wrench (Sports)
Seems like such a simple tool, but trust me there are a lot of ways manufacturers can go wrong. This one got it right. The steel is sufficiently hard, it is cut to the correct measurements, and the handle has a nice soft sleeve to protect your hand. And with all that, the price is great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits Genesis E310, July 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a Genesis E310 which came with the porcelain-coated steel flavorizer bars. Those just don't last, and will rust through in a couple years if you do a lot of outdoor cooking.

These stainless bars fit perfectly and will likely outlast the rest of the barbeque. Easy to install, just lift out the old rusted bars and set these down in their place.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great tape, July 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
All duct tape is NOT created equal. I have bought several brands at local big box stores, and had mixed results. Some tear way too easy, others don't stick very well, and many of them fail after a few months when the adhesive seems to dry up and the tape comes loose.

I don't know if this 3M is the best, but it is really good. Excellent strength, sticks like crazy, and I have had some on my dust collection ducts for several years now with NO signs of the adhesive failing.

Recommended!
