2.0 out of 5 stars Too Expensive!, November 3, 2014
Unfortunately, too expensive. There are far too many excellent authors that price their books below $5.00. Harmon writes good Science Fiction...but so do many others.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive!, May 18, 2014
I am a SF nut.
I am retired, so I read all the time.
There are way too many excellent authors writing for Kindle that don't charge over $5.00.
I read all the Campbell novels when I could get them used from amazon.
They were quite good!
The Kindle price is WAY too much...considering the lack of paper, binding, distribution, etc.
I'm sold on Kindle as, by far, the best way to indulge in reading.
Too bad greed rules the publishing houses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great internet radio, November 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I live in an area that has NO classical music stations. (none, zip!)
I do have excellent Wi-Fi in the house, soooo...
After perusing many reviews on amazon. I bought the Grace GDI-IRC6000.
Amazing!
Super quick setup.
Over 500 classical stations without any money changing hands.
Rather good fidelity.
Many other features.
I now fall to sleep with this internet radio.

Fun to read....
Not your "ordinary" superhero novel.
I'm looking for more from this author.
Just buy it! (that should be enough words)

1.0 out of 5 stars Yuck!, July 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am an audiophile and classical music nut, at least for the last 55 years.
I have had tons of earphones/headphones in my history. I am now retired and a Kindle devotee. Occasionally I stay up all night reading, and wanted music in the background. I had not used headphones for years.
I had used Stax and Koss electrostatic, Grado, ESS, Sony, AKG, and many others in the past.
I figured I would get up to current technology and try the Sennheiser.

Sorry.........
They sucked!

I may have gotten a dud, but I was not thrilled. The fidelity was very poor.
I was amazed, I had thought the manufacturer was very solid.
I returned them to amazon(super company) and got my money back.

I eventually purchased Etymotic ER-4S earphones(directly from the manufacturer).
They were the best I have ever encountered.
Too bad about the Sennheisers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, July 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lets face it...These guys are REALLY, REALLY good!

Wonderful to listen to.
Excellent arrangements.
Brilliant playing!

I just wish it was a 5.1 SACD, although the CD quality is fine.

Later.....
I found out that the disk IS available as a multi-channel SACD and I additionally purchased it.
Both disks are wonderful!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally stunning music, July 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For me, a classical music nut, musician, and audiophile, music comes in two "rough" flavors...

One: Stuff I can go around whistling and other people will recognize the music.

Two: Stuff that bypasses this route and goes directly to the soul.

Adams: Harmonielehre is a type two composition. I had never before heard anything from this composer and I was skeptical.

I put the SACD/CD disk on and settled down to reading my Kindle.

I have a large, powerful audio system.
The music was absolutely stunning!
I soon gave up on Kindle and just listened.
When the disk was finished, I repeated listening to it three more times.

This is a great example of primal direct mind stimulus, you will NOT go around whistling the "melody", but you might shed a tear.
I cannot recommend this more!

5.0 out of 5 stars As of today..the best value!, July 6, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a flashlight junkie. They represent the level of evolution of LED technology.
Whereas the first were a joke compared to filament incandescent lighting, they now represent the pinnacle.

This flashlight, powered by a good 18650 battery, is very bright, easy to use, and well made.

Best value that I have seen. You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Currently, the best PAR30 LED flood, May 24, 2012
I have tried a bunch of the "new" LED PAR30 bulbs for my house. I had almost all CFL type bulbs.
These IDEAL CREE are the best, by far!
They come in 3 "flavors" 2700K, 2900K, and 5000K color temperatures. All 16 watts.
I chose both the 2900K and 5000K types. I have purchased 30 of these.
They are very bright and come on almost instantly.
The only problem is they are way smaller than 24 or 30 watt CFL bulbs.
The solution for "can" fixtures is an extension (Satco 92-324 Porcelain Medium Base Socket Extender) also found on amazon.
Normally, "can" fixtures can be adjusted over a depth range...but not enough for the LED bulbs. The extender is a perfect solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first superb R30 LED I've seen, February 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are expensive...BUT...They are excellent.
I first ordered some of the 3000K R30 LED lights because I thought they would be less harsh in the ceiling down pots.
They were excellent.
I then tried the 5000K.....They were SUPERB!
They did not look harsh, only really bright!
They replaced 30 Watt CFL R30 lights but were much brighter.
Now I will only order the 5000K 16 Watt R30 (Ideal LED/Cree) bulbs.
If they don't dim with time, I will be thrilled!
Excellent vendor also!
