It's extremely well-built -- very sturdy. It's easily the highest quality compact umbrella I've ever owned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could be a lot better., March 22, 2016

This review is from: Xbox One Media Remote (Video Game)
It's pretty slow (there's a lag after depressing a button) and it must be pointed directly at the Xbox, which can be annoying defending on your furniture/TV arrangement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fills the room with incredible sound!, January 9, 2016
This sound bar is really great. I got this because my Vizio E-series TV has fairly poor sound quality, and this thing really does the trick. The sound is terrific! Everything is crystal clear, and the bass gives a great punch. Before buying, I wondered whether this would actually make a difference at low or medium volume levels, and the answer is definitely yes. I am not an audio expert, but I could tell a huge difference immediately. When I turned it on (and the TV speakers automatically turned off) it was just obvious that this was a vast improvement. The unit also has really sleek styling.

It was also very easy to set up. I just plugged it in and connected the HDMI, and my TV immediately recognized it and turned off its own speakers, so all sound comes from the sound bar (this is what you want.) One nice thing is that my normal TV/cable remote now changes the volume on the sound bar, so I don't have to use multiple remotes.

I would highly recommend this sound bar to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome TV. Very satisfied., January 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great TV for the price. I bought the 70'' model for $1,200, and am really happy with it. The picture is really good, albeit not jaw-dropping like the higher-end TVs that cost much more. Just fiddle with the picture settings to optimize the picture to fit your preferences; there are websites that can help you to do this if you're unfamiliar with what the settings do. I calibrated mine by following a CNET guide (I'll give a link at the end), and it looks really good. Sports in particular look terrific!

My only complaints are that the sound quality is fairly low and that the remote is ridiculously cheap. I have to tape my remote's battery compartment, because the battery door just falls right off without any pressure being applied. Ordinarily I wouldn't care that much about a remote, but because this is a smart TV I'll be using the remote quite a bit.

My delivery experience was great. Right on time, and very efficient.

Here's the website I used to help optimize the picture settings: http://www.cnet.com/forums/discussions/vizio-e-series-2015-picture-settings-642363/ I didn't follow it exactly, but it was a helpful guide. One area where I deviated from the guide is that I turned the tint level to level 3, because I thought people's faces were looking a bit red, and this made their skin tones look more natural.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun once the server issues cleared up, June 14, 2015
A lot of fun once the server issues cleared up. It's really big, detailed, and vivid, just like the classic Elder Scrolls games.

My wife and I enjoyed this a lot. It's very intense and suspenseful, and the characters are really interesting. Really hoping it gets picked up.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fine collection of nanners. But use them wisely., January 1, 2015
These nanners are positively tremendous. Use them for your eating periods, such as lunch, to fill your tummy. However, these nanners should not be used to make nunchuks to intimidate your neighbor Tammy. They're just too small for that. To intimidate Tammy with nunchuks, choose a larger nanner, or perhaps spring for a stronger material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little heater, December 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a really great product. We use it for our bathroom when getting ready in the morning (nobody likes freezing after getting out of the shower...) This little heater worked perfectly. It really puts out a lot of heat, and the construction seems very sound and safe. I would strongly recommend it.
