5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent pair of running shoes. I recently starting using them and keep alternating them with the Adidas Boost (which I am on the 4th pair) as these seem to be softer with even more absorption than the Boost. On the other hand they feel a bit "bulkier" than the Boost.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality (Original Levis?), 10 Oct 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Similarly with some other reviews:

I bought 3 pairs of those via Amazon 2 year ago and they were fine.

This seems very different than all other 501s I have been wearing. The size is smaller and the pockets tiny not fitting anything. Also they have 4 buttons in front as opposed to the normal 5 ones in 501s. I don't know if these are genuine Levis, but if they are, they have really very poor quality. Avoid...

5.0 out of 5 stars Improved version of 3088, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After years of usage the previous model 3088 had 2 buttons not working. 4088 is an improved version with better quality keys.

The base is smaller and the handset registers with the base straight away. I don't know why some previous reviews mentioned problems. Also, the handset stands well on its base similarly with 3088. As with 3088, a beep indicates that the hanset "sat" well in its base and it is charging, so no problems in misplacing it without charging.

The charge holds well although I used the batteries from the 3088 which I had replaced (after years of usage) with larger capacity ones (1000 mAh) than those provided by the manufacturer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Genuine Canon, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are many reviews mentioning that this is a fake battery but this is a genuine Canon product. I got mine directly sold by Amazon, as opposed to "sold" by a shop in the Amazon Market and "fulfilled" by Amazon. It costs 1-2 pounds more than buying from the Amazon Marketplace. From the previous reviews it is not obvious which shop(s) were selling the fake ones.

The product is sealed and the packaging has the genuine Canon hologram as described in the following link (check the specific patterns of the hologram in the link):

[...]

It has been mentioned in one of the Canon forums:

[...]

that someone got a fake with the original packaging. However, in my case even if someone could re-seal the package the marks on the edges (with the red colour missing) as the packaging was torn would still be visible.

The blue label is different than the original battery which came with my 5D MK II, but apparently these things change over the years. The original did not have the silver label with the manufacturing date, this one has it. It is marked as "Europe only" on the side and it came with the yellow cover like the original one (see above link on Canon forum for the fake with a brown cover). The package contains a Canon instructor's leaflet as well.

Charges to 100% in about 2 hours.
Testing the battery: after 54 continuous shots it dropped to 98%.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal for Runners, 9 Jun 2012

This review is from: Micropore Surgical Tape 50mm x 5m
Ideal for runners to prevent the "runners nipple" problem!

Comes out quite easily with some water in the shower without pulling much of chest hair.

4.0 out of 5 stars OK, just buy 2 sizes up, 26 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have been using them for a few days and they are OK. Although I usually wear medium, I bought them large due to some other reviews and they are still a bit small.

Just buy two sizes larger than your normal size.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a 3-button mouse, 7 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After all other manufacturers decided to stop producing any 3-button mouse, HP at last produced this. Excellent nice size optical USB 3-button mouse, ideal for Unix/Linux users.
