2.0 out of 5 stars Worked well... but only for 4 months, 6 Oct. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I purchased this item in May 2015. It worked well for about 4 months, but now only works on one channel for each pair of head phones. Well they worked sound quality was fine.

Guess you get what you pay for. This happened to my last headphone splitter and I was hoping the Belkin brand would be reliable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Delivery & Great Price, 6 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is only so much you can say about cable ties.

They work, they arrived quickly and they are an excellent price. 5 stars.

As other reviews have said these are very short, but that is clearly stated in the title and they were long enough for the job at hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent armband at a great price, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fits the Nexus 4 perfectly, no chance of the phone falling out. The hole for the headphones is in just the right place as are the volume and lock buttons. I also have quite skinny arms and the armband fits fine, although it couldn't go much tighter.

I have used this in the light rain and it provided adequate water resistance, not sure if it would withstand heavy rain for extended runs.

Have been using the product for 4 weeks now and no signs of wear. Overall great fit at an excellent price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not dense enough to provide privacy, 27 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this product to provide screening for our balcony which is on a busy road.

The item arrived quickly and at first glance looked good. However when I went to put it up, it was clear that there were significant gaps between the reeds. When placed around the balcony it provided very little screening, and you could clearly see the road on the other side. Also a number of the reeds were broken and it did not seem like it would be hard wearing.

Overall I would not reccomend this if you want to provide privacy, if you plan to use it purely for decoration it may be suitable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting back on form..., 19 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Dead or Alive (Hardcover)
This book is a direct sequel to Teeth of the Tiger, Clancy's last lack lustre entry in the Jack Ryan world. That book introduced Jack Jr, the other members of The Campus and the hunt for the Emir. This book centres on the hunt but thankfully is a return to the Clancy of old.

One of the main differences, is this book welcomes back some old characters, with the most focus on Clark and Chavez. This is a welcome relief as the new characters seem a bit under developed even by the end of this book.

Like most Clancy books this starts slowly with a number of (seemingly unrelated) plot lines before wrapping them all together in an exciting climax. This book seemed to start even slowly than most, and is quite tough going for the first half. However, the pace really picks up in the second half.

Overall, this isn't as good as some of the early Ryan entries, but it's certainly worth a read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing collection and free., 10 Nov. 2010
This is a great little guide for free. Each language is easily accessible using the table of contents. For each language there is a brief section on the background of the language and the pronunciation. After this there are sections on common phrases such as numbers, directions, shopping and much more. All phrases also have a guide to pronunciation in brackets next to the spelling. I cannot testify on the accuracy of the majority of translations but for French everything seems up to scratch.

My only complaint is when you finish a section you either have to go back to the language selection Table of Contents or the top of the current section. I think it would be useful to have a link to go back to the contents for the language you are on.

Overall this seems like it could be really useful when your travelling. What have you got to lose?

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Entry, 9 Nov. 2010
Lets be honest if you have got this far with the WoT you will probably read this book regardless of what I write. And you should, this book is a vast improvement on 9 and 10 and really sets the scene for the Last Battle.

As others have said this book focuses on Perrin and Mat (with Perrin getting a slightly larger share). This was my main problem with the book as Perrin has been my least favourite character in the last few entries. Having said that his story does pick up and there are a couple of great chapters with him. Mat's story is fantastic as ever (I don't have a problem with Sanderson's portrayal of him) in particular the last couple of chapters. The other parts of the book jump around quite a bit, which I didn't find problematic.

Two other issues I had were Rand's vast change of character (I think it needed slightly more exploration) and how Sanderson has dealt with Asmodean's death. Also I am intrigued as to how many grammatical errors got to final publishing, it in no ways ruins the book (they are still rare) but it is annoying.

Despite these issues, the book is great. It picks up the pace when needed but still has the marks of Jordan's long winded prose in others. Only one year to wait till Tarmon Gaidon.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have for any first year economist, 12 Dec. 2007
This review is from: Macroeconomics (Hardcover)
Having recently started my first year at University studying economics, this was one of two books that i was advised to buy. I have found it a vital aid to the marcroeconomic lectures, it explains concepts clearly and uses excellent up to date examples. My only problems with the book are that it does not cover the mathematical notes in enough detail and because it is an American book the majority of figures and exaples are based upon the US economy. But these minor problems should not put you off an excellent book.
