3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars, September 1, 2014
Not one of Baldacci's better efforts. It almost makes me wonder if he is employing a ghost writer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a suitable replacement for WD-40, December 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I figured I would give this a try as it was on sale. I used it on a squeaky garage door and a squeaky sliding door on the minivan. It was messy (grease spilling out the side of the top of the can) and did not work as well as WD40. Maybe it's better for other uses.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good..., December 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The printer recognized the cartridges and they appear to be performing as good as the OEM cartridges at a fraction of the cost.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Good, But I Was Hoping for More..., September 4, 2012
This review is from: Night Visions (Audio CD)
This is an excellent album. But the strongest songs on the album are lifted from from prior EPs. So in some ways this is a bit like a Greatest Hits album with a few new songs thrown in as a bonus. Also, some of the new songs feature a more prominent synth sound, which isn't my cup of tea. I much prefer their acoustic-based sound and am a bit disappointed that this album goes in a slightly different direction. For example, I was hoping that the new album would include studio versions of Darkness and Destination (which have been played in live sets but never released on prior EPs). I also miss the counterpoint of the female vocalist (and keyboards) that used to be a staple for Imagine Dragons. What happened to Theresa Flaminio?

1.0 out of 5 stars Didn't even last 6 months, November 10, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The machine stopped working after 5 months of very limited use. We've probably used it no more than 20 times. Now, DVDs are unwatchable as dancing green squares completely fill up the screen. Its not a connection problem. And the warranty is only 90 days on this machine so Toshiba refuses to address the problem. A simple Internet search will show that this problem with the dancing green squares is now commonplace.

Unless you only need a DVD player that lasts a few months, don't buy this piece of junk.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Picture--But Problems Within 2 Weeks, June 24, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The TV has an excellent picture and decent sound for its size. But less than 2 weeks after it arrived, there was no video, just audio. Because the TV was only a few weeks old, Amazon quickly resolved the problem by sending a replacement. Dealing with Samsung's customer service reps, however, was a nightmare and only emphasized the great service Amazon provided.

If it weren't for the technical problems, I'd give the TV 5 stars. We're now keeping our fingers crossed that the new TV doesn't die as well. We're also considering an extended warranty.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Echo and Poor Battery Life, May 27, 2006
We've had these phones for about 2 weeks and we'll soon be returning them and purchasing another brand. There is a terrible echo on most calls and the battery life is terrible. The phone also doesn't appear to indicate how much "charge" is available. Maybe we just got a lemon, but we'll be going back to Sony or Uniden (both of which performed much better than these new VTech phones).
