2.0 out of 5 stars Looks good, but renders power and volume buttons inoperable, October 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
On the plus side, this case does seem like it provides protection to the iPhone. The rubbery material at each end gives you something to grip onto, especially when you're holding the phone to take a photo. The raised lip keeps the phone's glass screen from making contact with a flat surface if you lay it face down.

In addition, the case's simple design compliments (and doest detract from) the iPhone's design.

On the negative side, the case adds quite a bit of bulk to the phone. I guess protection comes at a cost. As one other reviewer mentioned, the rubbery and rigid portions of the case separate easily. I'm not sure if this is an issue or by design.

My biggest complaint about this case, and the reason I'm returning it, is that it makes the volume and power buttons EXTREMELY difficult to operate. The case has cutouts in the rigid portion, so that the buttons are only covered by the rubbery material. But the rubbery material is pretty stiff and the button covers are flush with the rigid portion, so you almost completely lose the tactile quality of the buttons. Turning the phone off becomes a two-handed operation unless you constantly apply a Charlton-Heston-out-of-my-cold-dead-hands grip on the phone while turning it off.

2.0 out of 5 stars LCD screen is almost unreadable, March 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a Brother PT-65, which I love. I wanted to get the PT-90 for use at my office. The price is great and I love the fact that it's much lighter than the PT-65. But unfortunately the LCD screen is so lacking in contrast, that it's nearly impossible to see the characters you've typed.

I tried 3 sets of batteries, thinking it could be related to old batteries, but to no avail. I also tried purchasing another PT-90 from an office supply store, but it had the same issue.

So I think it must just be a design flaw in the PT-90. I wish the PT-65 was still available at a reasonable price (not in the triple digits!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set of colanders, January 8, 2008
I also ordered these based on Cook's Illustrated's review and I'm thrilled with them. They're sturdy, dishwasher-safe, and drain quickly, and the 3 sizes are great for a variety of uses.

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't even make it out of the store, January 7, 2008
The concept of these storage boxes is great, but they just don't work. In fact, I couldn't even make it out of the store where I bought them without them coming un-snapped -- and that's when they were completely empty. Needless to say, I immediately returned them.

The quality of these boxes is very poor. On many of the boxes in the store, the snap loops were broken off, and several of them were cracked in other places.

I really liked the idea of clear, divided, flexible ornament storage, but sadly this Snapware set is not a good solution at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars A comfortable, versatile bargain!, February 13, 2007
After researching many of the other more expensive, self-inflating air beds, I decided to purchase the Coleman 4-in-1 Quickbed for overnight guests. It's less than half the price of an average twin size Aero Bed and much more versatile as it can be configured as two twins, one king, or one double-height twin. You do need to buy a separate pump, but the Coleman pump is inexpensive and can be used for other inflating/deflating purposes (e.g., pool toys, vaccuum storage bags, etc.). Each mattress inflates and deflates in just a couple minutes, and it's quite easy to roll it up for storage. It's comfortable both as a single matress or double height. I ended up buying a second 4-in-1 Quickbed, so now I can accommodate up to 4 overnight guests for less than $100. I can't vouch for how long it will last, but even if it sprung a leak after a couple years of periodic use, it would still be worth it at this low price.
