4.0 out of 5 stars They are nice looking and light weight, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got these for about $25 on a fire sale or something. it says they normally cost over 100 I would never pay that much for them. but based on how how much I paid this is how I would review them.
PROS: I have a small face and these actually fit. They are nice looking and light weight.
CONS: they feel a bit cheap and flimsy.
SUMMARY: recommend of you pay less than $30 and have a small/smallish face.

3.0 out of 5 stars Right size and quality, cute, odd to drink from, February 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROS: Cute, sturdy, perfect size
CONS: I believe this is actually intended as a candle holder as opposed to glass. The inside of the lip is slightly hard and although you won't hurt yourself drinking from it, it is definitely noticeable and less pleasant. After noticing this, a quick internet search had these same "glasses" selling as candle holders
SUMMARY: if I could find something similarly sized and attractive I would get something else but I looked high/low and this is what I found so will be happy with them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow slow bring your internet to a snail crawl slow, January 1, 2015
PROS: Unlimited (so I'm understanding) free photo storage for PRIME customer. 5GB free other storage
CONS: SLOOOOOOOOWWWWW!!!! I tried the app which never worked now am using the browser-based access. The upload process is so slow I can't even complete the load before having to cancel because it has crippled my internet and i have other things to do.
RECOMMEND: No, Dropbox and Google Drive are a million times better.
NOTE: I'm hoping because this is Amazon's first forray into true end user storage they will improve so will continue to check back and see how things are going.

3.0 out of 5 stars Broken...but, low risk b/c of customer service, July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROS: Worked great for a time
CONS: Broke - components inside came apart

Too bad, I LOVE the plugable docking station and I had high hopes for this but it just fell apart.

Jul 22 update: Seller contacted me after seeing review and we resolved. They have great customer service so I upped a star because if it works for you it works, if you have a problem you will likely get it resolved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Work of art, July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROS: Fast, sleek, powerful, work of art!!
CONS: Shiny screen

I love this ultrabook! I am a IT solution developer and have all kinds of apps installed on this, including SQL 2012, and full Visual Studio. It is indeed my office in a...notebook. When home I seamlessly plug it into my plugable docking station to extend to 2 additional monitors, full size keyboard and mouse, speakers, video/mic, printer, and external hard-drive.

The keyboard feels very roomy and buttons are sleek but have nice touch and very responsive. The screen is unbelievably amazing for video and photos but is shiny so may be annoying in certain lighting. As a lefty who does not switch buttons, I've never liked the touchpad so my opinion is useless. I've not had any issues with drivers or such - it does come with a Samsung utility that constantly looks for software and driver updates, which is slightly annoying for someone who just likes to control the whole process, but I did let it apply some updates (including firmware) and there were no issues.

I do have issues with Win8 app font sizing (rendering some of them useless on extended monitors) and some command and property boxes also have a font size that can even make it impossible for me to see options, but I suspect this is Win8 issue so can hardly blame Samsung.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome sleek no-slip design, difficult buttons, July 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROS: sleek, comfortable, no slip
CONS: poorly designed buttons - hard to use and can magically work on their own (too much pressure on phone buttons)

I've discovered it's really hard to find a good phone cover, especially for the Galaxy S5 because the cover can put the size of phone slightly over the edge and make it hard to hold. This case is great in the hand (I am a woman and don't have long fingers), but the buttons can be difficult to naturally find and press...giving it some leeway b/c of price and if it weren't for this issue would give it 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good quality at low price, too small for Honda Fit 2011, July 2, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: Low price, decent quality, square design ensures good coverage (if it fits)

Cons: 1/3 of shade is NOT silver/reflective so is probably less effective that it could be; too small for my 2011 Honda Fit but my friend took - she has an Audi A3 and it's a bit big but works fine anyway

This is supposed to be jumbo but was too small for my 2011 Honda Fit - could not even hold it up with visors down. Also, not sure why the shade doesn't have reflective material on the entire top surface - 1/3 of shade is a dark gray which will probably just absorb heat (does not look like picture). Seems like a design flaw. However, for price it seems quality and will probably work fine for most.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great looking, good fit, May 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: Looks great and has a nice snug fit; buttons are nice and easy to locate and press
Cons: outer edge is slick and not easy to grip

This is a great cover and I expect to continue to use. I wish the sides weren't so slippery. Normally this wouldn't bother me so much but the S5 is slightly larger than by previous phone and the combination of size and grip make it difficult to operate one handed.

2.0 out of 5 stars WiFi is SLOOWWWW, May 10, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
PROS: easy to set up; worked great wired
CONS: wifi speeds HORRIBLE!
OTHER: never tried to connect an external drive though that was the plan - saw other review, sounds like I dodged a bullet

I bought this router because I was switching from AT&T to Time Warner and didn't want to rent the modem. Everything set up fine and it was a breeze to get connected, however, I ran some speed tests (...) before shutting down AT&T service - went to different parts of house and tested wifi and also tested both wired. The results were surprising - my AT&T which is lowest service you can get, consistently outperformed with about 70-80% better download and 30% better upload speeds. As I got closer to Netgear, ti did perform better but never outperformed AT&T at even the furthest location.

Then I wired them - AT&T router performed the same wired or wifi, while the Netgear doubled in download speed wired (same upload - like Time Warner caps it there). Since I was speed testing, thought I'd check my Verizon hot spot over cell (disconnected from the wifi's in the house) - it WAY outperformed the ALL the wifi in the house.

So, I'm going to research a new router with better wifi capabilities and return this product.

May 13 UPDATE: To solve my problem, I purchased a cable modem and router separately. Apparently, combos are notorious for poor WiFi, which since I don't have remotely the fastest internet service I didn't think would impact me. It did! I was OK to pay more if it helped and I am now getting WiFi speeds equal to wired using relatively cheap Netgear cable modem (CMD31T) and Netgear Nighthawk router (this is the important part).

2.0 out of 5 stars Not much juice, March 5, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This were supposedly Samsung which should be as good as the original but the battery I got did not provide any more juice than the worn out batteries I was trying to replace.
