1.0 out of 5 stars Laden With Spyware? No Thank You!, February 25, 2015
How can anyone ever again buy a Lenovo product when they admit that they are putting spyware into their firmware without user consent?

Their explanations for their current fiasco are beyond ridiculous.

This calculator was much clunkier and less refined than it appears in the photo. I'm lukewarm on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good looking clock and great in low light situations, February 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a good looking clock and I have now purchased three of them. I like the multiple colors. And I really like how well it does in low light situations. When you are in a very dark room, overnight, you can *just* see the glow. And then if you touch it, it gets brighter but not too bright.

It's a well-done piece. Thanks!

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed. Failed. Failed. An exercise in frustration., December 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Never did get this working. The first one failed out of the box. The second one I could never even set up -- the screw to the remote was stripped and I couldn't get a battery into the remote (And the stripped screw indicated it had been used/failed before, perhaps?). The third one WORKED! Hooray! And then after three minutes it started smoking ozone and burnt out the engine.

So it is a GREAT IDEA. And they should charge twice as much and do a LITTLE BIT of quality control and my son would have been MUCH HAPPIER!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly Works for a While. Understand the Limitations. And It Seems Not to Last Forever., December 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this in Feb 2014. It worked well for about ten months.

As described in other reviews, you do need to accept its limitations. One burner is hot and will boil water, work quickly. The other is a warmer and is good for lower heats. It would probably boil water after a wait, but it is really a warmer. I like using them, though I find myself swapping pots a bit (like moving the boiling pasta to the "heater" burner and then making the sauce for the pasta on the hotter one).

Then, after about eight months, the burners started to fail. Right now, the hotter one doesn't turn off, even when the knob is set to "off." So I have to unplug it, and it seems a bit dangerous if the thermostat is off.

It is still under warranty, so we will see how Waring does. But the phone number for the warranty line is disconnected -- not a good sign.

Anyway, I will rate it three stars. Works pretty well for a while.

I love this. As a simple accompaniment to yogurt or on a dessert, it is sublime. Great stuff.

1.0 out of 5 stars Movie might be good, but Amazon Video just does not work. (And I am a techie with a dedicated HTPC!), November 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I ordered 13 Going on 30 for my Daughter on Amazon Instant Video.

We are playing it on a dedicated Home Theater PC which has no problems with playback. And yet our video is jerky -- it stops and starts again and the audio cuts out. We cannot watch a movie like this.

I would avoid Amazon video rental. Their servers do not work and there is no link to cancel an order. They need to get it together.
