4.0 out of 5 stars because everything else is amazing, but I'll be looking for another product next ..., May 14, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Upside: whisper quiet and smooth.

Downside: The 19" blade doesn't properly fit my 2007 Mini Cooper S windshield. The return stroke doesn't clean the upper center portion of the window. Gets it going up, but not down. I can live with this,because everything else is amazing, but I'll be looking for another product next time around.

Other than that minor annoyance, these things are great.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Aside from being forced to upgrade my software from Deluxe 2012 for no obvious reason....

Intuit now requires the creation of a "Quicken ID" in order to use the program, which requests all kinds of personal information and no way to decline. Your only option, according to support, is to enter false information. In addition, the product now includes all kinds of "features" designed for instant, online access to your information.

Who the hell really needs that? Are people who can afford a smartphone so incapable of managing their finances at home? Seriously, you have to install this on a desktop/laptop, so clearly the product is primarily used elsewhere.

This is the same poor product design that affected TurboTax this year and caused Intuit no end of grief. I will continue to use Quicken because there is no other option, but that doesn't mean I "like" it.

2.0 out of 5 stars these would be good shoes. They are not, April 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been wearing NB sneakers exclusively for years, and keep moving to the more expensive models because the cheap ones are ... well, cheap. I expected that, for the price paid, these would be good shoes. They are not. Very disappointed in the comfort.

I may have to move to another brand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent write speed in my Nikon DSLR, September 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have 2 of these cards, and (subjectively) their write speed in the camera seems to be better than my Samsung Ultra cards. I don't know about anyone else, but for me, write speed is what matters. I can always get a cup of coffee while the photos download to the computer. This card is a bargain.

So far, so good. Reliable, easily managed. If you want extra (guest) networks with limited bandwidth, you'll need to find another device. But for simple and steady, this has been great.

1.0 out of 5 stars Just... don't. Move along, September 11, 2014
This arm arrived reasonably well packaged. Upon opening, the arm and the clamps were in separated cellophane bags. I recognized that the clamps were in one bag, so I picked that one up to open it. One of the handles had broken off, so I looked at how that could have happened, and the spindle is made of plastic. The lever and spindle had snapped off. I look closer and the entire unit is made of plastic, including the rod.

I'm sorry, but it's a arm intended to support weight. Plastic? Really? This would never hold up under even casual use.

I have other Fotodiox products, and have been satisfied with them, but this one is a total bust.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, but there's a fatal flaw, March 6, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Overall, I had high hopes for these; they're sold everywhere online. Got them, put the left one on, and worked on figuring out how to tie them. When attempting to snug the ankle the front tab, to which the ties fasten to secure the shoe, came off of its rivet. The material gave way, and there's no way to repair it. There's also no other way to tie the shoes.

Unfortunate, because the actually fit pretty well (a medium for my 10.5 US shoe size) and the look pretty good. They looked like they would have held up for one season as I save for a pair of boots from Son of Sandlar. Alas, no.

I can not recommend this product.


Winter Quilted Cap-Black
Winter Quilted Cap-Black

3.0 out of 5 stars Great concept... execution, not so much, March 9, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Winter Quilted Cap-Black (Apparel)
The design is great, the quilting is a very good idea, and the fit is what I expected (hat size 7 3/8, ordered a large, it's perfect). Bought this for a trip to Colorado, should do nicely.

The quality of the construction is, ahem, not the best. The sewing itself is fine, but the various components of the hat are not aligned well, the knitting that covers the brim was not arranged properly before being sewn down. Overall, a cheap job. Guess where the manufacturing was done? An perfect example of a poor reputation. Consdering the price point, clearly lots of markup for profit here.

OVerall, it will suit my needs in a climate I rarely visit. But good value? Not sure I can agree with that.
