5.0 out of 5 stars Very large and Light- Survived first trip without a problem., October 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
So far so good. For it’s size very light weight and as other’s have said a very large bag. Just got back from a trip to Europe. Put in 47 lbs and could have packed 60 lbs in it but need to keep it 50 lbs for economy overseas travel. Flew both British Air and Lufthansa and had no issues with physical size of bag and Lufthansa is a pain in the butt about oversized luggage. Bag got manhandled quite a bit and survived without a blemish. We do several overseas trips a year so I will repost after a couple more trips to see how it holds up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Update 9/14/14 -8 shots and Broken !!, August 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very disappointed was looking forward to some heavy duty target shooting this Labor Day weekend. Received rifle Fri night and first thing Sat morning was hoping to break rifle in. Made sure all screws were tighten and barrel clean before first shot. Took 8 shots and Rivet on pump mechanism fell out rendering gun useless. Already have it at UPS for a return and asked for a replacement since I did like the look and feel of the rifle and can't ignore the great ratings this rifle has received. I will upgrade from one star once I get replacement and give it a good workout. Can't say enough about Amazons return policy speed and ease. Attached picture of broken mechanism.
UPDATE:09/14/14 Received new rifle in 3 days and have taken a little over 100 shots. Nothing has gone wrong with new rifle and am pretty impressed with it. Rifle is built very solid, it is heavy, I'm a big guy no problem but might be to heavy for some. Breaking barrel for loading pellets doesn't take a lot of effort as long as you smack barrel once to break seal. Without doing that requires a lot more effort. SCOPE: Can't zero in scope perfectly can get it to dead center but shoots low even with adjustment at max. Solved that by just aiming slightly above target and can get dead center shots.
NOISE: with light weight pellets 7.5 grams sounds like a door slamming not that bad but if you have close neighbor's they will hear it. I've been using heavy 10.5 gram pellets and the sound is more like snapping a leather belt.
POWER: I am surprised at the power from 30 ft away will go through 3/4" plywood using the heavy pellets. Bought primarily to control rabbits which are eating every plant I have and it is excellent at that. Can get a good head shot from 40-50 ft away and puts them down instantly. Overall very happy - updated to 4 stars and if not for the scope not being able to be dialed in perfectly and that the 1st gun I received was defective would be a 5 star......

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely an armored shell, August 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Does feel like an armored shell. Stand on back is great when using phone as an alarm clock. Have not had any issues with the on/off button or getting charger cable to fit as others have reported. I have Big hands so phone with cover feels great however if you have small hands the added weight and size may not make this the right cover for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Transmitter - very useful product, August 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
To be honest I am behind the times since I never realized a mini Bluetooth transmitter even existed until I decided to give up my Sony Walkman MP3 player for a Bluetooth MP3 player and in that search found this and with such good ratings decided to try it. New Bluetooth 16GB MP3 player $150 and up this transmitter with my trusty Sony $25. Setup could not be easier, fully charge transmitter and then pair with up to 8 devices. Pairing was simple as holding down a button for 5 seconds while Bluetooth receivers are on. Mine are paired to a pair of UE mini Boom speakers and a Meelectronics Bluetooth headphone both very good products on their own. Range – measured distance from transmitter to speakers 40 ft. and to headset an outstanding 55ft. Measurements are line of sight. While transmitter sits on the 2 nd floor of a 3 story house good reception in every room. Plug transmitter into headphone jack 3.5mm and you’re ready to go. Claimed battery life 4 hours which I haven’t tested but have had it on for 3 hours without a low battery light coming on. Size about 1/3 the size my Sony (picture attached). Added bonus register transmitter on line and get another 6 month warranty bringing it to 1and 1/2 years. Very pleased with purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good player for a excellent price., August 17, 2014
Bought 8 GB unit way back in 2008 and still works however ran out of space and since I had such good luck purchased this last year on EBay (Amazon was Temp Out of stock then also) . Sound – I think it has very good sound however half the equation is what you are listening through. When using a good set of monitor headphones sound is great cheap pair of earbuds you get what you pay for. Recently purchased a TaoTronics Portable Bluetooth Transmitter and transmit to a pair of UE mini boom speakers and a Meelectronics Headphones and sound is super clear with excellent bass response and the added convince of using this MP3 player as Bluetooth player. Battery life- do a lot of oversea plane trips and gets me from Denver to Frankfurt about 10 hours on one charge. Sometimes squeeze an extra hour but no more than that. My 8GB got 15 hours easy. I’ve had no problems loading music and playlists from windows multimedia software. On/off is confusing a 2 step process but no biggie however would recommend next version to have a dedicated button for this. Unlike my 8GB which had a proprietary charger cord and this is a common USB cord about time Sony. Have not used for anything but music so can’t comment on other features of player. Very happy with this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great bluetooth headphones for even a greater price......, August 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For $47 a great buy. Have been using for a week now and am very pleased with purchase. Sound-very good frequency response midrange and high, bass is not as deep as I would like but it is a $47 headphone. Volume is as loud as I need and at full volume think would get ear damage. At normal volume there is no leakage of sound so next seat partner on a plane should not be bothered. Bluetooth pairing with my laptop fire Tablet and recently purchased TaoTronics portable Bluetooth transmitter was a snap with no issues. Have had no dropout with the laptop and only occasional with the tablet which I attribute to the tablet not the headphones. Have not tested the portable transmitter yet but will write a review once I’ve used it for a while. Range – get good reception throughout a 3 story house and outside get 30-40 feet. As others have said after about an hour ears start to sweat but after 2.5 continuous hours they were still comfortable. Haven’t used long enough to check battery life and will add to review latter. I have a big head and they fit fine although we will see how they hold out since they are not made of heavy duty plastic. An added bonus is they can also be used as a wired headset and doing so improves bass response. Overall for $47 best Bluetooth headphones you can buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little portable speaker, August 17, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After trying one out for a week purchased another for stereo and better sound. Have been pleasantly surprised by the good sound from such a small footprint speaker. Listen on back deck mostly to POP music some with heavy bass such as the Black Keys and speakers have a very good frequency response. At full volume there is distortion however when played loud enough for the neighbors to hear at about ¾ volume no issues. First thing out of box went to UE website and got the link for a speaker update. Both needed to be updated. Pairing speakers to Laptop, fire tablet and each other was no problem. As a matter of fact others have said that they had issues pairing speakers for stereo output but I have not had a problem, the update may have something to do with that. Range is a good 30-40 feet and I have had no dropout problems from the laptop and only occasional from the tablet which has more to do with the tablet then speakers. An excellent purchase so far.
