5.0 out of 5 stars Bose Fan!, August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bose Fan!

I've had a few head phones over the years as I fly for work almost every week. I have the noise canceling Bose for travel which are great. I picked these up for my daughters b-day recently. Now all her friends want a pair. For $100 these are hard to beat. Music quality is solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wicked Awesome!!, August 19, 2014

Wicked Awesome!!

I'm an AV junkie and have had a number of different TVs, HDTVs, etc over the years. I have a Panasonic (3D) and Samsung Plasma but was looking for "Movie Room" TV for the basement we are remodeling. Pricing and features - this looked like a good buy. I've purchased some big items through Amazon in the past and their delivery service has really improved recently. I'm not receiving notices on ETA and when a package is delivered which I love. For this delivery, the truck service called and scheduled in advance. The guys on the truck were friendly, helpful and did not look to me for help unloading.

PICTURE - WOW!!!

My wife never gets excited about the Amps, Speakers or TVs I buy - but that all changed when we fired this up in the living room. The first movie we played was the newer "Alice in Wonderland" w/ Johnny Depp (Blu Ray). The picture quality was so stunning she commented on it several times. After watching a few shows and football - I did make the adjustments others referred too. However, it was the "power save" option I turned off that made the biggest difference.

Great Paracord - good price. I've always been a fan of paracord for back packing/camping/etc. This 100" bundle is a great package to toss in the pack, or grub box. I'm a fan

5.0 out of 5 stars My Fav, August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My Fav. I love to cook and have invest in HENCKELS knives and All Clad pots and pans. I've had a number of cutting boards over the years and this one is my favorite. I was in between boards and looking for the "next" when I noticed Master Chef uses these. I had one before but it warped and split (along with every other board I have ever had). This time I picked up the John Boos Block Board Cream with Beeswax. I use the cream every time the color of the board starts to fade. The cream takes it back to its original dark color (it also beads water when you rise/wash). So far not warps or cracks - very happy

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Good product! I've spent money on chopping boards only to have them split and crack over time no mater what part of the country I lived in. The hotter - more dry climates seemed to have a shorter life cycle. I picked this up with a new Boos Board. It keeps the board nice and new looking. I've only used it for a couple months - but there is no warping so far, so good

3.0 out of 5 stars Its ok., August 19, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Its ok. I have a gerber, shrade and a few other multitools. I seen the rave reviews on this one and was looking for one I could take in my day pack or leave in the truck and haven't had a leatherman in years so I picked this one up. For me, its no where near as well thought out as the others I have. I like the Gerber Suspension Butterfly is the best layed out but the quality on the new ones is suspect. I bought one for my son and ended up keeping the new one for me and giving him my old one as I felt bad - the quality on the new one was no where near the original. Rumors of Gerber manufacturing in China must be true. Back to this Leatherman - to access many of the blades/tools you have to open another one partially to extract the blade/tool you want. Perhaps its because that made this one too small. The overall quality seems good but the lack of suspension for the pliers coupled with the clunky opening makes this an average choice - considering it was substantially more than others - I would not buy again

Solid Shears. Just picked these up but really like them already. Blades are very sharp. I like the fact that you can take them apart for cleaning

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad Pour, June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
While the marketing claims no drip, you have to tip this decanter completely upside down to pour the last glass of wine do to the very wide base. While doing this with the first and only glass of wine, I completely lost control of the pour on the last 2 glasses of wine whereby the wine ran down the sides of both glasses (and I was sober). We've had several different decanters over the years so I was shocked at this experience. So much so that I took it to the sink and practiced several times as I could not believe this design forced you to complete invert the decanter to empty the contents. I could not even imagine using this with company. While we do like Schott Zwiesel wine glasses, this decanter is being returned.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Multi-Tool, June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had one of these I picked up a while back. I gave my original to my son for out door trips with the boy scouts. I went to replace it and the first one was defective (could barely move the slide to retract a blade. My original worked smoothly so I returned it and decided to try my luck again as I really like this design and have had a number of multi-tools over the years. The spring loaded pliers are a huge feature. My second try panned out as it functions close to by is not as clean / smooth as the original. I've read reviews that indicate Gerber has moved production to China which is unfortunate as I've always been a Gerber fan - not so much anymore. Still a solid tool for the price but kind of wish now I spent the extra $$ for the new leatherman CS4

5.0 out of 5 stars Great personal water filter, June 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I researched a number of products before buying this one and was not disappointed. I went on a trip with a group recently and we had several different makes/models. A couple of us had one of these which proved to be the most popular and easiest to use. Someone purchased theirs at Cabelas for $23 + tax. I believe Walmart has them for $20. Either option makes the Amazon purchase even better if your prime. Less than $20, free shipping and no tax. Highly recommend
