Hoover S1120 Hand Held Wet/Dry Hand Vacuum Cleaner

4.0 out of 5 stars Loud but powerful., January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We have a tile bathroom and it houses our cats' litter box. As a result, in the morning, we frequently find litter and hair (cat and human) all over the floor. This Hoover was the first solution we found that worked well. It has incredibly powerful suction, and the charge lasts about a week at a time for us. The downsides are that it is LOUD, and you will have to clean the area around the filter every month or so to keep the suction high. It is light weight and looks cool as well. Would definitely buy again.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite rechargable batteries., January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Eneloop or nothing. it really is that simple when it comes down to rechargeable batteries. These arrive pre-charged, last forever, never have to be reconditioned, and don't fall apart. I usually buy them in bulk and use them everywhere possible.

2.0 out of 5 stars What was I thinking???, January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Ugh. What a disappointment. This is a short, DLC heavy, overly fan-serviced shooter. The characters are not that interesting, the levels are fairly boring and quickly become predictable, and it doesn't matter if you beat the bosses or not as you clear the stage anyway! I fell into the otaku trap of moe girls dressed as spaceships. oh well, at least it wasn't that expensive. until I bought some DLC. will I ever learn?

4.0 out of 5 stars My default computer cleaner, January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It comes down to the handle. I know it sounds weird, but the can and handle of this cleaner are just plain better than others. The propulsion is well balanced, and does not switch to liquid that easily. I use this for cleaning out components and connectors on my PC and Peripherals. If I need canned air, this is what I reach for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written guide that will make you wonder how you missed things., January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This guide to Infinite Jest justified itself alone by being able to string together all the uses of the color blue. I had tacked Infinite Jest (IJ) this past summer and while I found it a wild ride, was left with several major questions. Elegant Complexity did not spell out the answers, but helped me see the guide wires enough to find my own way through. I was shocked at how large this guide was, it gave IJ a run for its money. I would suggest using Elegant Complexity the same way I did, as a reader for those who have already finished IJ. Elegant Complexity definitely improved and enhanced my enjoyment of IJ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says!, January 28, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Very little waste, and songbirds love it! I've ordered this several times and have never had a problem. We live in the pacific northwest, and are able to attract blue jays, jaffer jays, chick-a-dees, and sparrows.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for gundam fans, not so much for others., August 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The gundam universe(s) have so much history, that it can be very intimidating for newcomers. There are two approaches you can take with this game: already be versed in the history, or just run around killing things. The game covers: 0079, 0083, zeta, double zeta, turn-a, victory, char's counter attack, 00 gundam, F91, and gundam unicorn. there is a ton of unlockable content, including mobile suits, characters, music, and more. it can be frustrating to figure out what is required to unlock the next new thing, but in general a good time. I have not tried the multiplayer mode.

4.0 out of 5 stars No more heroes., August 14, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Ware Tetralogy (Paperback)
This is really good sci-fi. The ware books have the added bonus of evolving technology; from robots to biotech, we see how technology progresses, and both changes and is incorporated into culture. My problem with it? No heroes. all of the main characters are tragically flawed and commit unforgivable acts ranging from murder and betrayal to (arguably) genocide. Is this just a side effect of a great post-modern set of novels? hard to say. But it would be nice to have a protagonist to cheer for, or at least a clear antihero, not just one that hangs out in the middle. Definitely a good read, but you might not feel good about mankind by the end.

Black & Decker NST2018 GROOM 'N' EDGE 12-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Electric String Trimmer with 2 Batteries
Black & Decker NST2018 GROOM 'N' EDGE 12-Inch 18-Volt Cordless Electric String Trimmer with 2 Batteries

4.0 out of 5 stars This is a great weed-whacker!, June 24, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Growing up, we had an electric trimmer that I dreaded using. It was bulky, it was weak, it required long power cords.
This Black & Decker solves all of these problems. It is strong, it is cordless, it is easy to adjust the trimmer string length.
I can do most of my yard on one battery, and everything I can think of with two.
My only complaint is that there is no indicator of how full the battery is. Your best bet is to just charge it overnight.
another thing I like is that it is not too noisy. Great job Black & Decker!

1.0 out of 5 stars Easily cracked and expensive to replace., January 8, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The blender that goes with this pitcher is outstanding. The pitcher is a waste of money that cracks easily, and needs to be replaced with another expensive pitcher every few years.
Very disappointing.
