1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality, 30 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
3 out of the 6 glasses look permanently dirty. There was a strange oily substance / smell in all glasses. Upon washing them twice, the glasses still look dirty. Scratches and trapped bubbles would have been fine but dirty looking glasses are not acceptable; they've been thrown away.

BTW, we probably received a bad batch since we had received good glasses the first time. So, the quality control is questionable.

It does what it says; easy to install; great quality; the cables are concealed; sturdy. The monitor can now be repositioned anywhere around the desk.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works!, 2 Dec 2013

To my surprise, this device actually worked! You could hear the rodents running on the ceiling and behind the walls but once this device was plugged in, everything was gone! Just unbelievable...

1.0 out of 5 stars Did not work..., 11 July 2012
The product did not work. Attached to two different Win7 PCs (one of them being a Toshiba) and nothing happened other than the power LED turning on. After a while we got the message that the device was successfully installed but still the drive could not be accessed. Connecting the second USB cable did not help. After visiting Toshiba's web site for support, there were no new firmware or drivers available. The product was returned on the same day. By the way, at that price you can get other drives that support USB 3.0 as well.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unimpressive..., 23 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this book hoping to find a way to spot talent that nobody else sees. The book goes on repeating itself, throwing in case studies out of context and telling us what it will tell us in the following chapters or what it has already told us in the previous chapters. In many cases, the book implies that there is no magic formula and any method used can be a hit or miss. The only reasonable advice given was to look in areas that nobody else does. Reading the resume from the bottom up is another tip but I doubt this can be of much value since many people do not bother adding non-professional information. Also, we should look for signs of the candidate's character, which everybody does anyway. In summary, the book seemed to be blown up in size and the info could easily fit in half the pages. In the end, the title and abstract over-promised and the book under-delivered. I wasn't impressed...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Notebook, 10 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great notebook for research and development activities. It is durable, with numbered pages, table of contents and a space for a witness' signature at the bottom of each page. The particular notebook from Amazon came with grid pages. Also, the vendor went the extra mile to take care of an invoicing issue. In overall, a great purchase.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality..., 20 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The quality of this product is very low. The plastic feels cheap and the fit is not perfect. In addition, there is a thin strip of rigid plastic that surrounds the bottom of the home button; this strip is so thin and rigid, it was broken when the product arrived. This makes it a design flaw. It was sent back immediately.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfection, 7 Sep 2011

This is a great shredder, so far. It cuts documents into extremely small pieces and the operation is very quiet. This is perfect for the office.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wrong sizes, 7 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: UK Adult Brannock Device (Apparel)
This device is supposed to measure UK foot sizes but it consistently reports half to a full size larger. It is as if the scale is for the US market and they've only changed the label. This is a very disappointing instrument. We have contacted the manufacturer and they haven't even bothered to respond or address our complaint.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy if you are a touch typist, 4 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite all the good reviews, this keyboard has a poor key layout for touch typists. Specifically, the left "Shift" and the "Enter" keys are too small and further out from where they are supposed to be. You cannot touch type because you keep missing these two buttons unless you are willing to adjust. The tactile feedback is rather poor as well. This is not a keyboard for professionals.
