2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap product at a high price, October 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very cheap plastic sunglasses. One lens fell out after a few uses. I was able to pop back in. This is a very over-priced product even at the $20 price I paid.

1.0 out of 5 stars Skip this Aladdin, July 18, 2014
Primitive animation and slow story telling. It just didn't engage me or my grandson.

5.0 out of 5 stars Birthday gift late but worth it!, May 28, 2014
Had trouble getting this product originally. But once the product was in stock and shipped, it was well received by my daughter. It is her favorite fragrance. The 4 gift bottles are a nice touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, inexpensive replacement for Kreepy Krauly, April 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This product far exceeded my expectations. It is inexpensive, simple in design and works great! The pool cleaner is made for the slightly smaller above-ground hose (which it provided), but it came with an adapter that I used to connect to my own 1and 1/2 inch in-ground hose. My pool is approximately 20x40 ft and it cleans it very well. It doesn't go quite as high on the wall as the Kreepy Krauly, but the difference is small.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lousy History that should be flushed, April 16, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Don't look for any history lesson here. The history is superficial, excessively cute and wildly inaccurate. For example, the very first entry in the book claims that George Gamow announced the "Big Bang theory" of the universe in 1948. Although Gamow was a proponent of this theory, it was actually published in 1927 by a Belgian Catholic priest/scientist by the name of Georges Lemaitre. This theory and Lemaitre's theory of an expanding universe were not hidden ideas, they were widely analyzed and discussed by the leading scientists of the day.
Unfortunately, this first entry is all too typical of the shoddy approach to history seen in this book. Although it may provide a minute, or two of entertainment, it's "history" cannot be taken seriously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Inexpensive nightstand, September 3, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This nightstand exceeded my expectations. It is not top-of-the-line furniture, but is a very nice product and a very good value. The construction is far better than I've seen for similar, and higher cost, nightstand in the local furniture stores. I was impressed enough with the nightstand that I bought a second one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Junk!, September 3, 2012
This large and heavy showerhead is uncomfortable to hold and is somewhat ugly. Because of its' weight and cheesy plastic construction it lasted all of one week. I bumped it while getting out of the shower and the bottom plastic connection broke and the showerhead fell. I have had numerous massage showerheads and have never had one break before. Prior to this product, I had used a Sears brand shower massage in the master bath for a few decades. This product is badly designed and poorly made. I would never buy another Waterpik product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous product, March 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This poorly made product lasted just long enough to create a dangerous electrical condition. A slight tug on the cord made the bare wires pull out of the device rather than pull the electrical plug out of the socket. The open wires then touched and made a spark. This wouldn't have happened if the cord had a "strain relief" in the product (and a simple knot of the electrical cord would have sufficed). Instead the tiny connection at the printed circuit board had to take this small strain, and it couldn't. Definitely a badly manufactured product. It has been thrown in the trash.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not an "Adult" rocking chair, December 31, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you are 5'2'' and 100 lbs this rocking chair may fit you. It is in no-way an adult sized chair. Despite what the specifications say, the seating area is 15.5 inches by 17.5 inches, a very small seating area for any adult. This chair would be useful for children from 6 to 14. If you are looking for an Adult-sized rocking chair, you should look elsewhere.

In addition to the inadequacy of the chair itself, the shipping container was cheap and had many punctures (that had been sealed with tape). Because of these openings, the seat was scratched and the assembly screws were missing. All in all, this is a product to stay away from, unless you are buying for a child/teenager.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than Junk - a waste of time as well as money, July 31, 2007
This abomination lasted about a month before it stopped heating the water. I previously had a different In-Sinkerator hot-water dispenser model that lasted about nine years, so I expected that same life-time out of this one. What a disappointment! I have come to the realization that In-Sinkerator just makes crappy products. I had switched from their inferior sink grinders to better quality products, so I should have known better. You live and learn.
