Practice Make Perfect French Vocabulary (Practice Makes Perfect Series)
Practice Make Perfect French Vocabulary (Practice Makes Perfect Series)

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This isn't bad book, but it also isn't very good. On the positive side, there is a fair bit of vocabulary on a variety of topics. However, the exercises are very limited and cover only a fraction of the vocabulary. I wouldn't recommend buying this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nice build quality but short run time, October 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These lights seem to be well constructed and I really like the form factor for spa steps and deck accent lighting. But what stops them from being recommended is the poor battery life. Even when placed in decent sunlight for a good portion of the day, the most I get out of the lights is 2-3 hours. If you have a shady location or low winter sun, then I suspect you aren't going to be happy with them at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, October 24, 2015
Worked fine initially with decent picture quality, but after a month of use it stopped functioning entirely. Also, one of the straps broke after about a week. The manufacturer has suggested a variety techniques to update the firmware on the unit including reformatting the MicroSD card; however, nothing they suggested works. The quality of hardware and firmware is obviously not there yet. If you look at their support forums, then it seems units becoming unresponsive is quite common. I'd suggest you avoid this product.

Update: After some back and forth with the vendor, they have asked me to send the product back to them for inspection. But guess what? They are located in Australia and that costs around $25 to send internationally from the States. What a joke. I'd avoid this product unless you are located in Australia.

I used the Pro 210 to extinguish a grease fire recently. The extinguisher was easy to use and stopped the fire in a matter of seconds with two short discharges.

I really liked last year's film Wintervention, but this one isn't really very interesting. The visuals, narration, and dialogue just didn't hold my interest because they are not very good. This one is probably only for Warren Miller Films enthusiasts only.

3.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming, December 7, 2011
This review is from: Warren Miller's Fifty (DVD)
I'd heard about Warren Miller's films and this is the first one I tried. It won't be the last, but overall the movie was pretty disappointing. It could be this isn't holding up well with the passage of time. The comedy is cornball stuff. The ski/board runs are a bit tame. The narration is largely on the dull side. Some of the music is good but otherwise I didn't find much particularly noteworthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Quality Device, April 12, 2011
For over five years, I've been running a weather station for the San Jose area. During this time, I've slowly gone from reporting weather to other things like earthquakes and even radiation. When recently upgrading the server that all my devices connect to, I found myself in need of a USB hub.

There are lots of USB hubs out there to choose from and many of them are your typical low quality junk. I wanted to make sure I had a hub that could power lots of devices, was reliable, and fast. This led me to the AdvanCED USB3.0 Hub 4-port with Power Supply.

I've been using this USB hub for a couple of months now to power and connect a Davis Instruments weather station, a seismometer, a geiger counter, and a portable hard drive. During this time, the USB hub has been flawless. It worked straight out of the box and I've never encountered any compatibility issues. The hub comes with a power supply and enough ports to suit my needs.

Performance wise, I ran extensive HD copy tests using this and other hubs to gauge performance. The AdvanCED hub for USB 2.0 devices supported full throughput. I have not been able to test the USB3.0 transfer speed, but having USB3.0 support will allow me to continue to use this hub far into the future.

The design of the hub is also pretty nice. The unit is attractive, has a good set of status lights, and is generally well thought out. The design seems superior to the usual mass produced gear.

Overall, I am quite pleased with this hub and would not hesitate to recommend it.

This hat is comfortable and of decent quality. 100% cotton. Made in Macau. The fabric could probably be a little thicker but doesn't feel cheap. Keep in mind that the hat is NOT adjustable, so order the appropriate size.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, January 27, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a follow up to the fantastic book Autodrome. Autodrome described some of the retired racing circuits in Europe with a combination of history and photography.

In this new volume of stories and photographs of former auto racing tracks, coverage spans both North America and Europe. In fact, some of the circuits described in Speeday are duplicates of those in Autodrome. Some of the new tracks covered in Speedway include Chicago, Augusta, Middle Georgia, and North Wilkesboro. Returnees include Avus, Brooklands, Monza, and Montlhéry.

While Autodrome was quite enjoyable, Speedway is a bit of a letdown. Both the photography and track selection for the North America circuits are somewhat poor. Furthermore, rounding out the book with a bunch of the same tracks (albeit with some new photos) from Autodrome seems like a cheap trick. Surely the authors could have found more worth tracks to include like Marlboro Motor Raceway, Riverside, and others?

If you already have Autodrome, then I'd say skip this volume.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great, January 27, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using these wrenches in weekend automotive work for about a month now. They are decent wrenches and usable for most tasks. However, they are not super heavy duty and can be broken if you push them beyond their limits. In my case, I found that limit on a stuck transmission fill plug. Nonetheless, I think they are good value for the price.
