OfficeMax Battista II Task Chair, Brown
OfficeMax Battista II Task Chair, Brown

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for the Money, October 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For the $50 I paid, this is a good chair. It looks attractive and hasn't fallen apart. The seat and back cushions are both small, which means that a larger person(>180 lbs) may not feel supported. Nor does this chair allow for any reclining. One the one hand, task chairs are not built for reclining, but by the same token a great chair should have some customizability and allow for moderate reclining. This rigidness is mitigated somewhat by the fact that the chair is well cushioned.

If you are going to spend your entire day on a chair, then spend more money. $200 upfront is better than a chiropractor or orthopedic surgery down the road. Yet this is fairly good and I can sit in it for around an hour before tightening up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Preposterously Long, October 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These shorts are absurdly long. The sizing chart recommends M-Medium to those with a 28-29 inch waist. But I can't imagine many people over 6 feet tall who have 28-29 inch waists.

I am embarrassed to wear these shorts outside of my home. The waist fits, but they are so long that they would be at home in a hip hop video. If that kind of urban style isn't your thing, then don't buy these shorts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great deterrent, October 1, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an interesting lock. On the plus side, my lock worked exactly as advertised. The lock is small but is heavy and sturdy. Not even a grown man will be able to pry this open( some travel locks can be torn apart by the very strong). It must be cut with a tool unless the correct combination is entered.

In terms of providing actual security, the lock falls short. Even if we give a potential thief a full 5 seconds to try a given combination, and he/she is as unlucky as possible, it will only take 5000 seconds (roughly 1.5 hours) to open this 1000-combination lock. If this lock is left unattended for even a few hours, a thief could open it. Yet in practice locks mainly act as a deterrent. Why would a thief spend an hour with your bag or gym locker when there are plenty of other bags and gym lockers that people neglected to lock at all?

The price is fantastic, and the yellow color makes it easy to identify as your own. Those interested in securing valuables like a wallet, purse or jewelry may decide to invest in a 4 dial lock (10,000 combinations rather than 1000) , but this one is solid. It's essentially a $20 lock for under $7.
