1.0 out of 5 stars Worst film I've seen in a very long time, January 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Ex Machina (Amazon Video)
A movie has to be pretty bad for me to shut if off half way through, but that's just how dreadful Ex Machina is. It's slow moving, boring, obviously contrived, and the characters are stereotypical while not at all believable. Couldn't care less if all the characters were to die, so not worth struggling through the last 50 minutes. After quitting it, I read the spoilers at IMDB, so I can add that it's predictable, too.

These seemed to work fine for a couple years, until I baked something in them that stuck. I soaked them in hot water with a little dish detergent, then washed and rinsed as usual by hand. After that, they imparted a strong soapy flavor to baked goods, and were tossed out. I'll be using metal pans in the future, since discovering that this problem isn't uncommon.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The ingredients include various berry "pieces", which are just flavored carbohydrate concoctions, not real fruit. Since they're hidden in the tea bag, there's absolutely no reason for Twining's to use them except to avoid "fruit-flavored" on the label in favor of representations suggesting you're getting real fruit. The flavor is blah, not as good as the Lipton pyramids, which actually contain fruit. Will not buy again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not reliable, August 4, 2015
I purchased this direct from Dell and the LCD went out. Dell has no replacement parts (other than motherboards) and they refuse to obtain parts to repair it. An external monitor doesn't work because with the LCD gone, it won't boot up, it just sits there beeping 8 times. The POST (power-on self-test) prevents a work-around. There are no replacement LCD kits to be found anywhere, except for used on auction sites.

I added about a quarter cup of honey to create a caramelized glaze, best spare ribs ever. This will be a pantry staple from now on.

I purchased this drive based on customer reviews vs. other similar 1TB drives in the same price range and haven't been disappointed. The back-up software and other utilities are adequate for my needs and don't have the limitations some free versions of upgradable back-up programs have. It works unobtrusively in the background and hasn't conflicted with anything running.

Contrary to the description, there is no soft pouch included, but that's not a feature I would have used anyway. I purchased this drive to protect back-up data from the frequent severe lightning storms we have (surge suppressors don't help with a nearby direct hit). Nothing could be simpler than keeping the USB unplugged in bad weather. This is infinitely preferable to backing up to "the cloud", which I don't consider secure.

I usually prefer freshly ground whole beans brewed in a french press, but this makes an excellent single cup in the Hamilton Beach 49981A Single Serve Scoop Coffee Maker. Will definitely buy again.

The set arrived with one of the lids broken. All of the lids are made of the same material and have the same basic construction.

I'm very happy with the Perdition mouse at this price point - you could pay a lot more for similar features from better-known brand names. The software comes on a mini-CD that is not compatible with slot-feed drives and may require an adapter for some tray-style drives. However, it only took a minute to find the software download at http://www.redragonzone.com/en/download.aspx and get it installed. The mouse comes with all the weights preinstalled and a case to store them in should you choose to remove any.

The shape of the mouse very comfortable, and the slightly roughened texture is really nice. The wheel has a rubberized feel to it.

I have only one complaint on the design, and it's because I naturally hold a mouse turned in at a 45 degree angle, not pointing straight ahead. A lot of people find this more comfortable, so maybe someday a designer will create a mouse for us. If all of the side buttons were moved much further up toward the cord, more of them would be within reach. To get to 7-8-9 and 10-11-12 I have to move my entire hand, so accessing them isn't very quick, while the tip of my thumb naturally rests on the wasted empty space above the 1-2-3 row because of the way the curve of the mouse fits the palm of the hand. If you tend to hold a mouse pointing straight ahead, this will not be an issue.

1.0 out of 5 stars Does not meet manufacturer's claims, June 5, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This one-size brace might fit a petite woman, or perhaps a pre-adolescent boy, but it will not fit the size ranges the manufacturer advertises. The binding on the front edge of the sole and under the heel are too thick and inelastic, so it cuts into your foot. The metal bars put painful pressure on a sprain, and provide no lateral support in any case... you can still freely invert and evert your ankle with it on. An ordinary elastic bandage provides better support, comfort, and compression than this device.
