Sacred 3 - PlayStation 3

4.0 out of 5 stars What the heck, I like it., April 26, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Note:
I have never played any of the Sacred series so I am treating this game review on the gameʻs own merits rather than based on expectations of what this game should have been.

Pros:
- Plays like a Gauntlet-style hack and slash.
- No inventory to manage. Iʻve played my fair share of RPGs dating as far back as the 80s with Wizardry. Iʻve played Skyrim, Diablo 3, Torchlight, and now and then itʻs nice to just NOT have to deal with inventory management.
- It actually has a black character for a change.
- Technically the game is well executed. Audio/Visual quality are generally good. No noticeable glitches.

Cons:
- The dialog is truly terrible and the humor is forgettable. Oddly after a while you just completely tune it out. Itʻs like a noisy jet engine. After a while you just donʻt hear it any more :)

Summary:
- Gauntlet-like repetitive hack and slash. Acceptable if that is what you are expecting and when sold at same price as Gauntlet (2014).
If you are a fan of Sacred 1, 2, youʻve already seen the other reviews of this product- so stay away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Appears to work, April 5, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Product appears to work but one should be aware it takes time for slugs to ingest materials.
Iron Phosphate in low concentrations is harmless to animals as well as earthworms.
Would really like to know what the 99% "Other ingredients" are.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gimbal but Software Install is Horrible, March 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have used a traditional heavy counter-balance-based steadicam system before which took a lot of practice. This unit however is pretty amazing.

Pros

- Without any practice I (literally) was able to shoot steady video with my GoPro.
- Mounts GoPro 4 easily.

Cons
- Instructions for installing drivers, software, firmware is pretty horrible. They tell you to install software from their home page but no indication of what you are supposed to download. Would it be so much trouble to say: 1. Download USB driver. 2. Download Firmware Updater. 3. Download Firmware- then provide a simple link to these? These guys really need to learn from Apple.
- Installation requires a PC. Will NOT work with Mac, unless you are emulating PC.


OXO Basic Can Opener

Price: $9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars No problems here, February 6, 2015
This review is from: OXO Basic Can Opener (Kitchen)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros
- low cost can opener
- cuts very well
- comfortable handle
- lightweight

Cons
- hand grip is not as sturdy as my other can opener with a heavier handle but on the other hand that can opener is in the trash after less than a year because it couldnʻt grip onto the can.

So itʻs a cheap can opener that gets the job done. I donʻt need an innovative new way to open a can.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:

Summary:
I had expected this to leak eventually but not after just 4 uses.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well made set of headphones overall, January 20, 2015
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Pros:
- Bluetooth feature is a plus to synch to smartphones etc.
- Noise cancellation appears to work- filtering out white noise. Yes there is a small hiss- but not noticeable when music is playing.
- Good bass.
- Charging dock is pretty cool.

Cons:
- Heavy and it clamps too tightly to your head making it really uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time.
- Expensive.
- Difficult differentiating between the different preset equalization levels.
- Audio level appears rather low.
- Interface is kind of difficult to operate at first since all the buttons are on the headset.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent field watch, January 9, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:

Extremely lightweight.

Attractive.

Watch was shipped from Japan and instead of arriving in a month as Amazon had predicted it arrived within a few days!

Watch came in great shape. Brand new, including a pillow which the watch was wrapped around.

Watch was already set to English and for the city in which I live including the current DST setting. Wow thatʻs service.

Inexpensive given the exceptional features. You canʻt find another analog + digital + atomic + solar watch thatʻs reasonably water resistant in one package- ESPECIALLY not in a field watch.

As far as its water resistance, I took it for a 30 minute swim in the ocean today and there were no problems with it.

Cons:

Watch strap is indeed stiff as others had noted. I took advantage of the pillow that came with the watch and tightened the watch around the pillow to let it stretch over night. That seemed to help a little with the stiffness.

Summary:

This watch is essentially the WVA-M640-1ACR except it is rated only at 5 ATM depth rather than 10 ATM, and the strap is a nylon strap rather than a plastic strap.
The nylon strap is what makes this watch look more like a military field watch, and also much easier to replace. Iʻve always hated having a great Casio watch where over time the plastic strap would break and it would be impossible to replace. I guess thatʻs probably what Casio intended...
