Very handy for freeing up space on a crowded surge protector, especially for old game consoles. I used it with a Sega Genesis and a Sega CD to plug them into the same jack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for soda and beer drinkers. Works with larger cans, too., April 21, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
As we get closer to summer I find myself drinking more carbonated beverages like seltzer, beer, soda and energy drinks-- especially caffeinated ones when I'm working on projects. This product does a fine job of addressing the age old problem of cold beverages becoming lukewarm if I don't drink them up right away. I was working on a project the other night and managed to stick a 16 oz can of Monster inside this thing, and even after several hours of occasional sipping it was still cold enough to be enjoyable to the end. It seems to work a little more effectively with 12 oz cans, which stay colder for longer, but even so it's quite nice that it works with larger cans too. The exterior of the insulator stays closer to room temperature, which is a nice bonus for comfort, as is the grippy rim around the top. I also live in a humid area and it's nice to not have to deal with all the condensation building up around the outside of a can.

If you drink a lot of canned soda, energy drinks or beer I highly recommend this product. $10 is a pretty small price to pay for soda that stays cold.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply beautiful!, April 8, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this game! I can easily say it's a must-have for the PS Vita. It has slightly enhanced graphics over the Wii version, excellent (customizeable) controls, and it looks amazing on my Vita's screen. Muramasa Rebirth offers many hours of engrossing action gameplay with RPG elements, and every frame of the game looks like a lavish work of art. Do yourself a favor and give it a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't be happier with how much it's improved my home network and internet experience., April 8, 2016
This router is top notch. I am a Comcast Xfinity user, and the wireless gateway that Comcast provides is pretty terrible. Unfortunately if you're bundled into their voice service, you won't be able to get rid of your gateway since there's no other way to use their voice service. Fortunately, you can put the gateway in "bridge mode" from the settings menu, which essentially turns it into a basic cable modem when connected to this router, which is the next best thing to getting rid of it entirely.

The Nighthawk router performs exceptionally well with pretty much everything I've thrown at it. I had to restart the Comcast bridge constantly, and have have not had to restart the Nighthawk since I bought it. And if you are a gamer, this is the router to have. It handles Steam and PS4 in-home streaming like a champ. I've tested Steam PC streaming on LAN to laptop on 5Ghz wifi, PS4 to PS Vita streaming on 5GHz wifi, and Steam PC to a cellphone running Moonlight on 5GHz wifi and all gave me excellent image clarity, little noticeable latency and no stuttering. The Comcast gateway could barely even maintain a connection on anything but the lowest settings, even on the 5Ghz band. The Nighthawk is also the best, most stable performance I've ever gotten while using Splashtop for productivity in different parts of the house, and the range is much wider than my Comcast gateway.

Another excellent feature is that it's very easy to change your IP address with this router. Xfinity is technically a dynamic IP service, but it's impossible to change your IP address with just the official gateway. The Nighthawk lets you easily alter your MAC address, and then after a manual unplugging of the Comcast gateway's power cord for 15 seconds, the network will boot back up with a new IP based on the new MAC address. I was impressed with how easy the process was once I understood how to do it, and now I feel confident in knowing my home network has an additional (albeit basic) layer of security.

The $200 neighborhood may sound pricey to some for a router, but you get what you pay for. This is a high-performance, excellently constructed piece of equipment with a wealth of great features that I've barely even tapped into. Whatver your ISP has provided you with, I am pretty certain that this router will outclass it in every way imaginable. Even the exterior is excellently designed with a clean stealth-bomber inspired aesthetic with matte plastic (not piano finish, thank goodness), with easy to view white LED indicators, and the option for wall mounting on the back.

If you are dissatisfied with your network performance and/or range despite having a fast internet connection, I can heartily recommend the Nighthawk. The price may be a bit intimidating, but I'm confident that this model will meet all of your needs for the foreseeable future, at least until our internet connections and wifi devices get even faster. I couldn't be happier with how much it's improved my home network and internet experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Whether you're an artist or an art fan, if you love Zootopia you owe it to yourself to check this book out., March 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Art of Zootopia (Hardcover)
This book is an absolute treasure chest. Not only are there are tons of beautiful concept drawings inside, but you will also gain a brand new appreciation for Zootopia when you see just how much it changed throughout production. From its beginnings as an underwater secret agent movie called "Savage Seas" to a Bladerunner-esque dystopian Noir film, visually seeing how Zootopia evolved is a fascinating story in and of itself. Whether you're an artist or an art fan, if you love Zootopia you owe it to yourself to check this book out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality just like the Nick Wilde figurine, March 22, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Just like the Nick Wilde figurine, this is a well made toy that makes a great display piece while also being fun to play with in the Infinity game itself. The sculpt, pose, surfacing and paint apps are all just as top notch as with the Nick figurine. I especially appreciate how consistent the matte finish on these two toys are, since that can be difficult to achieve with bare plastic, even on other Infinity toys. This version of Judy looks just like her movie counterpart, although more smooth and stylized (as is expected with Infinity toys). This and the Nick Wilde toy are perfect companion pieces and I'm glad to have bought both.

In-game, Judy is quite a bit of fun to play with. Like Nick they went the humorous route with her fighting style, and hers is very reminiscent of Liu Kang from the Mortal Kombat series, with lots of high flying kicks and other martial arts-- she even does a bicycle kick, which makes for a good laugh. Her special ability is a one-shot tranquilizer gun, which never actually shows up in the movie, however it's a nice nod to the teaser trailer where she uses it to knock out Nick.

Again, like the Nick figurine, if you like Zootopia then this is an easy purchase whether you play Infinity or not. This is a great collectible in its own right while also being a fun addition to the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality figurine, both for Infinity collectors and Zootopia fans, March 22, 2016
This is one of the better quality Disney Infinity figurines I've seen around, and given the generally high quality of the line that is saying something special. The quality of the sculpt, the paint apps, Nick's smug, knowing facial expression, the sculpted tropical pattern on his shirt, and and the overall consistent flat finish of the plastic are all top-notch. Even if you are just looking for a figurine to put on your shelf, this is a very solid one.

In terms of the game, he's quite a bit of fun. He's somewhat of a joke character, with his primary means of attack being to slap enemies around with the Jumbo Pop from the movie. His attacks feel appropriately heavy and weighty, and as a visual gag it's great, with bits of melted popsicle slush flying around with every hit . He also has the ability to summon his partner Finnick as a special attack.

If you like the Zootopia movie then this is a very easy figurine to recommend. It's great for both play and display.

I bought these for my Beyerdynamic Custom One Pros. They are so much comfier than the stock earpads, and they even seem to have improved the audio and sound stage by letting more air in. You'll want to open up the bass port another notch due to the decreased isolation, so if you're a basshead who likes that thing turned down all the way, you might want to consider sticking with your stock ear pads.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you are just starting out it's perfectly fine, however I would say that long term you ..., March 6, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Let's cut to the chase: this is a cheap airbrush. If you are just starting out it's perfectly fine, however I would say that long term you should probably consider eventually graduating to something like an Iwata. The big thing about this airbrush that gives away its cheapness is that it's very hard to apply just a light amount of pressure to the trigger, because it seems to prefer either being shut off completely or going full blast with everything in between being pretty difficult to achieve. I do not regret buying this brush at all because it's great to learn the basics on, however if you really get into airbrushing I'd suggest investing in something a bit fancier.

The brush is pretty easy to take apart for cleaning, and for that I'm quite grateful.
