5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent water repulsion, cleaning., October 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think the biggest key with these blades is cleaning the windshield and applying the silicone cleaner/lubricant. Once done, the windshield can be SCRUBBED with gas station sponges/wipers and still retains its' water repulsion. I've had these almost a year and only now do some things stick a little without being wiped off by the blades, but it STILL repels water (at 40+mph, you don't need to run the wipers as the water beads off so quickly. Worth the price!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best "Bandaids" ever, October 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice flexible fabric which flexes around knuckles, does not wash off in shower (even rinses clean!), stays put for >24 hours if you desire. All in all the perfect bandage for small cuts/scrapes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great surge protector- one flaw., October 30, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice surge protector with good level of protection, cable surge protection, nice right angle power cord, etc
I love the power save feature which allows me to have one plug which controls power to other outlets (I use my computer CPU tower to control the monitor, speaker system, etc that are only used when computer is on. This avoids the low power draw of LED/LCD monitors EVEN when powered off.)

The flaw: only three outlets are available which are NOT controlled by the plug used by my CPU. I have a cable modem, wireless router, wireless printer, etc which I want to stay powered on when the computer is off. The balance is off: redesign with more plugs which are always on, fewer dedicated to the power saver feature.

1.0 out of 5 stars Adding to leak reviews, June 4, 2011
To further the leak review discussion:
Just called Frigidaire/Electrolux to ask about the leaky redesign. They cannot tell me whether what they sell on THEIR OWN WEBSITE is the original design (2 cylinders enclosed in a plastic rectangle) or the faulty (2 cylinders not enclosed). Customer service assured me that the part would fit; when reiterating I was concerned about the 2 cylinder design and not the fit they suggested going to Lowe's to look at the part available. Want to order from Amazon as $10 cheaper- note the customer photo is the original rectangle and Amazons photo is the exposed 2 cylinder design.

**I don't think the company is concerned about the flaw.** A suggestion: letter writing campaign to the company- companies do seem to respond better to something in writing (it is visible proof they ignored the consumer if they don't act). Maybe involve your local news; many like faulty product reports/warnings. Let's ramp up the bad publicity and make them care about us!

My situation: Three year old fridge which I have not replaced the filter on even once given the reviews online. In case Frigidaire should ever read Amazon reviews, please know knowledgable consumers do exist who will (1) not buy the faulty filters, (2) not buy Frigidaire/Electrolux products in the future, and (3) discourage any friends from buying these brands. (Interestingly, I have had TurboTax respond to a mostly positive Amazon review with one minor suggestion- a surprise and an indication a company cares). A shame if Frigidaire/Electrolux loses business this way- my whole kitchen is stainless Frigidaire appliances.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best way to cut a mango!, February 19, 2011
Length:: 0:25 Mins

Oxo Mango Splitter
-Easily separates two halves of fruit from pit. Then just score the fruit so that the skin lays flat and cut fruit from skin. There is no better way to cut a mango, so until something better comes along, this is a 5 star product.
-Another reviewer noted when the blades dull, it will be difficult to sharpen. True. I'll buy another for all the time and mess it saves!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome card game, best with larger groups, January 29, 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Winning Moves Pit Card Game (Toy)
Great high intensity card game. Gets better the more players you have, reaching across the table, crossing arms, yelling and grabbing cards in a frantic effort to "corner the market" in one commodity (collect 9 cards of the same type). Rules say to play with one type of commodity for every player playing, but I'd suggest one extra commodity for the number playing (makes it shorter/easier to corner the market and adds to the frantic intensity). 5 Stars if it came with the hotel style bell we had with our Pit game from childhood (hit the bell or in this case smack the corner card when you corner the market).

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute kids lamp, price excessive, January 29, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bottom line: a cute 3D relief lamp matching the Carter's Monkey Bars lineup (including curtains, sheets etc), but too expensive for painted plastic Made in China.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flinch, January 29, 2011
= Durability:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Flinch (Toy)
Classic card game
Basic Play Summarized:
-Play by discarding numbers in order onto central piles, 1 through 15
-5 Discard piles for each player, one "Flinch" pile (goal is to get rid of 10 Flinch pile cards)
-Call "Flinch" to penalize a player for NOT playing their Flinch card first, and transfer one from your Flinch pile to theirs

Pros: Overall is Very Good fun, simple play, but must look several players ahead at times, so some strategy, enjoyed by everyone we've ever introduced the game to (repeat plays)
Cons: NOT ENOUGH CARDS IN ONE PACK for play with 4 players- should buy TWO packs

5.0 out of 5 stars As advertised, December 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Dr. Brown's are considered the best bottles by almost any pediatrician you'd ask. These are for 3-6 mo. My baby was 6wks premature but was able to start at 3 mo. of age (i.e. didn't wait til 3 mo. post due date). Little need to say more- if you're considering this item you probably have the bottles with #1 nipples. Feeding time reduced with increased flow!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Absolute Favorite Christmas Movie, December 28, 2010
First saw this movie in sixth grade maybe? We had a TEST after watching... a fill-in-the-blank test! Literally asked on the test: What did Stewart's character say were the three greatest sounds on earth? Seriously! (Answer is in the movie.)

Aside from isolating Christmas movies, this is one of the best examples of developing characters. EVERY major character is developed, you enter the story, HATE Mr. Potter when he tries to get a good guy arrested, etc. Gritty enough to have a near suicide, touching enough to be a great Christmas movie emphasizing importance of family and friends.
I try to go with BluRay every time with a good screen and sound, whether old or new movie.
