3.0 out of 5 stars Get something a bit better if you read in the dark a lot, 22 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's a cheap item, so don't expect anything fabulous. The light can flicker if it is moved quickly, but some work with a screwdriver rectified that. I would recommend it if you want a cheap and cheerful solution; and definitely if you are a tinkerer with access to a soldering iron, as you can really improve this one on your own.

I found the clamp a bit large for my Kindle (the older version w/keyboard) but it does what it's supposed to reasonably well. For less than the price of a pint,

5.0 out of 5 stars Good support for physical activities, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this item on the advice of friend who owns the open-knee version. I have had issue with my IT band for about a year, and had a bit of a relapse following a training run around a week before a 20-mile assault course. I used this on the day, and it helped immensely with some discomfort towards the very end of the run.

In retrospect I took a risk in running with an injury, but I would certainly recommend this item for light exercise if you do have ITBS, although it seems to be decent under an intense workout. It will slip a bit over time, but it's quite easy to re-adjust.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good deal for the price...would be fantastic if it had a lock button for the controls, 8 Mar 2014
It is an MP3 player, I do use it to listen to audiobooks, and it works, although I never switch it off. It's best as an music player for gym sessions, runs etc...the buttons are always active, so you can unwittingly pause or skip tracks ( a pain if you're listing to audiobooks)..but it is cheaper than a pint of Guinness and fulfills it's purpose. I would recommend it, but it's no replacement for a conventional mp3 player from apple or creative...

A great buy, I wish it had a zipper, but the drawstring I suppose does offer more reilability if not security.

The item was bought as a replacement strap; it was a lot cheaper than the store alternatives. Comfortable and easy to fit.

4.0 out of 5 stars At least it's over..., 19 Mar 2013
I started the series when it first came out, and have followed it since, re-reading the books several times over the years; and it has certainly been a fruitful and inspiring investment for me. But this ending has left me unsatisfied...other people have raised the issue of Padan Fain's footnote death...this guy was supposed to be the Agent Smith of the Wheel, and he is around for about 3 pages...what a waste.

But all that said, it's been a good end to a great series, Brandon Sanderson has done a very good job stepping into some very large shoes, with a demanding audience.

A great read, i found the names used a bit strange, but that would be subjective nit-picking of a great piece of work


Half-Life 2 (DVD ROM)

5.0 out of 5 stars Paradigm Shift, 7 July 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Half-Life 2 (DVD ROM) (Video Game)
Half Life 2 is a blessing as much as it is a curse; it sets the benchmark by which the genre must be judged, and unfortunately you will compare everything to this game. The anticipated Crysis pales in comaprison to the depth of the story and immersiveness of Half-Life 2. This is gaming mastery, and I really want to see a game that can beat it.
