5.0 out of 5 stars miracle product, July 3, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
miracle product.

imagine the absolute worst faded, streaked, stained, 'used to be black' trim you ever saw on a car - that was mine, on a 9 year old suv.

i tried the usual products one can find in a store or online, but they only last a couple of weeks. i was looking for something that lasted longer - even if it was not permanent. i was thinking of painting the trim, but that can have issues over time.

i found this product and read the excellent reviews.
bought it.

i used a paint prep cleaner (removes dirt, grease, wax, etc.) on the plastic before applying. any product like that would work.

i followed the instructions.
wore the supplied gloves.
application with the supplied applicator was easy - a little of the product goes a long way.
buffed with an old clean cotton towel (instructions said not to use microfiber).

came our great. leaves nice solid low glass sheen. easily passes the '5 foot rule' (looks good from 5 feet away), if not even closer.

i stored the used applicator in a plastic food bag (as the instructions said) so i can use it again.

i only did one side of my suv to se how it looks after a couple of weeks.

i will update this review only if the product does not live up to expectations.

right now, i am very imnpressed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent translation of a brilliant work, June 21, 2016

there are several translations of this work - at varying degrees of completeness. of all of them, this is my favorite. short chapters on different subjects.

highly recommended.

well worth the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars good entry level smart watch, June 13, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i was looking for an entry level smart watch. this watch meets that purpose.

I did not want to spend $150+ for a name brand smart watch in case it turned out to be just a toy.
so, i found this smart watch.
bought it.
I like it.
it appears the several companies make the same watch - but all refer to it as dz09.

once it is set up it works well. you have to download the 'right software' for it on to you cell phone - google dz09 and bt notification to find one of the many out there.

battery time is ok. a charge usually lasts for an entire day.

things I like:
being able to see on the watch when calls are coming in, and then from the watch i can end the call without having to dig my cell phone out of my pocket. nice when at a meeting at work or in a public place.
the watch can also be used to answer calls - sound quality for speaking and listening is pretty good.
being able to see messages come in on the watch without having to dig my cell phone out of my pocket. nice when at a meeting at work or in a public place.

things I do not use:
any of the fitness things.
alarms.

things i do not like:
I am tired of the song that plays when you power it on or power it off (and it is loud).
for 'notifications' it only shows the 'last' notification - you can't scroll through them if there are several (they just fly by). this is frustrating and seems like a bug that should be easily fixed.
power button seems over sensitive at times. just having a shirt sleeve over it can cause it to do something. not sure if that is a feature, or mine is damaged - but it does work.

overall, for under $20 it is a good entry level smart watch - so, one needs to set their expectations accordingly.

I would buy another.

5.0 out of 5 stars great jacket, May 5, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i was looking for an 'ecwcs type' jacket (gore-tex or a similar waterproof breathable fabric) in atacs-fg. no luck UNTIL I found this jacket.

it is not the 'licensed' atacs-fg (and they say so) but it is so close it is a near perfect match. personally, I do not care as long as it is close.

extremely well made and well designed jacket. mil-tec makes a great product.

it looks like mil-tec only makes this particular jacket in a length of 'regular'. I usually like to order jackets in a 'tall/long', but the regular length is fine for the sleeves and the length of the jacket. in a perfect world, I wish it came in a tall/long, and was a couple of inches longer, but I am more than happy with it as it is.

zip in/out liner is nice quality.

all in all, it is a military grade product for the consumer.

recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent militiary style smock, April 28, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
was looking for a military style jacket/smock. found this.

excellent:
construction,
design,
attention to detail,
functionality,
fit,
utility.
I could go on and on - it is rare to come across such quality in an item.

all in all, a great military style smock that one could use in a military situation. also cool for just walking around - a great look.

appears to be water resistant - as least it is in the light rain I walked around in today.

Mil-Tec (Sturm) makes a great product.

zipper slider is reverse from US, but that is ok.
zipper slider is military style with 2 sliders - I like that a lot in a long jacket; lets you open it up from the bottom if sitting down. but, if you are new to it, it might take a little while to get used to. simply hold the two sliders as close together as possible and as far down as possible before inserting the other side of the zipper.

personally, I would NOT order one size down if you intend to layer. I bought one in xxl and it fits nicely over a t-shirt, but I also ordered a xxxl so I can layer.

you cannot go wrong with this item.

buy one while you can - the seller said the manufacturer stopped making them :(

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Craft Beer Glass, March 7, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
i was looking for a nice glass for drinking home brewed craft beer.

i recently took up the hobby of home brewing beer. it takes some time and effort to do home brewing, though the results are worthwhile - it is a 'craft'. since it takes time and effort I wanted something special in the way of a glass when i was drinking my home brewed beer.

I read many reviews of this glass and found that the vast majority were very positive - so i went for a set of 4. received them today - and the positive reviews were spot on. great high quality glasses. I would buy more without a second thought.

just the right thickness. some reviews say they are too thin, but they do not seem thin to me. I have wine glasses that are thin - these glasses are not wine glass thin. I think they are the type of thickness you might find in a bar or restaurant for a beer glass like this - just right. thin enough to not be an awkward brick in your hand; thick enough to last if treated like 'glass'.

they hold 16ozs for sure. some reviews say they do not, but maybe they were shipped the wrong glasses(?), as I think this glass also comes in a smaller size.

no broken glasses. they came nicely packaged in what looks like a factory sealed box that was then in an amazon box surrounded by those inflatable air bags; good to go.

the shape of the glass concentrates the aroma of what is inside the glass - like a wine glass. I like that since I also drink wine and can appreciate the difference the right glass can help make. of course, it is not a 10 times better difference, but enough of a difference to increase the pleasure of drinking.

price might seem a bit high to some reviewers ($32 for 4 - $8 a glass), but i could not find them anywhere by me. even so, these quality glasses are worth $8 a piece to me - I have seen them for more than that at other online retailers.

glass is clear, and the glass sits flat. some reviews mentioned rings in the glass, or maybe the glass does not sit flat on a table, but the glasses I received were clear, no defects, and sat flat.

I like libbey glasses - in general. I think they make a nice utilitarian mid-level product.

bottom line:

great beer glass

highly recommended.

would make a nice gift for a beer lover - even if you give the gift to yourself.

(will update this review if my experience changes)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great device, easy to program, December 8, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great device, easy to program.

was looking for a timer for my back deck light so that when I come home there is light back there.

saew all of the positive reviews for this timer and bought one.

the positive reviews were right.
great item.
simple interface.
easy to program.
looks nice.
it works.

note: check ahead of time to make sure you have a 'neutral' wire in your current light switch wall box - this unit must have that in order to function.

after i submit this review i am going to buy another one for my side door light.
