2.0 out of 5 stars newbury_comics shipped wrong item., December 19, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The wrong disk was shipped (single movie Black Lagoon disk, not the 3-movie Legacy Collection disk). Two stars because the return system seemed to work well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what is supposed to be., November 23, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This tube showed up in good time, and it is just what was advertised and what I expected. Great for a bathroom vent.

Wonderful, so imaginative and funny like all of the other Moomin comics and books I have read. The kids love them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Constant hiss, broke quickly, November 4, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Despite the largely good reviews, these headphones are awful. There is a constant, distracting hiss, and no amount of fiddling with the tuning dial helps, it only makes it worse. It is the same on all three channels and with different input devices. And a range of over 300 feet? Try 20 feet. The only way to be happy with these headphones is to keep your expectations very low.

I originally forgot to mention the extremely loud static when the headphones don't find, or lose, a sound signal. Ouch!

News update. The left channel stopped working after four months. Complete junk.


New ATI nVidia Video Card Fan Replacement
New ATI nVidia Video Card Fan Replacement
Offered by HappyFBA
Price: $8.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the correct fan, September 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The fan I received did not match the specs. It was smaller in diameter, had a different screw hole spacing, and had a different power connector. It took an hour of filing and soldering to get it to fit (needed it right away). Maybe this was a rare fluke, but I was not very happy.

News flash! The bearings failed after 10 weeks. Happy trails!

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm, but soles wear out, October 1, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These slippers are warmer than others I have had, but the soles wore clean through in the one heel after a year, the other heal after two, and a toe after a few months more. I wear them a lot in the winter, but only indoors. It seems to me they should last longer.

2.0 out of 5 stars No good on DL disks, January 27, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works fine on single layer disks, but stops reading more than half of the double layer disks I have tried, especially scratched ones but including some very clean ones. When it stops the message refers to a fatal read error, or some other read error.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless junk, September 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Supposed to have a very long range, line of sight. I have complete loss of signal from 7 or 8 meters, and occasional dropouts even from 1 meter distance. I strongly recommend something else.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for young children!, February 3, 2003
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The adventures of James require the gruesome deaths of his beloved parents and two awful aunts, and the acceptance of a frightening gift from a scary-looking stranger who pops out of nowhere. While the aunts are indeed terrible, their insults to James are unnecessarily cruel and prolonged. There are also an infinite number of literary ways to extract James from his predicament without killing his aunts. At one point the characters are actually gleeful about their deaths. Although the rest of the plot is imaginative, it is choppy and doesn't hang together or flow well. The ending, while happy for the characters, falls flat and carries no grand positive message. This is not a book for young children, and I don't think it is a particularly good book for any age.
