5.0 out of 5 stars Good value, gets the job done, 18 Aug 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Went with the marginally more expensive seller, and was satisfied with the earlier-than-promised shipping, adequate packaging and general lack of problems. Assembly instructions were poorly translated into English, but for the most part, the process was fairly self-explanatory. Fan works great, not too noisy, the 3 speed settings are surprisingly well tuned (you rarely end up wishing for speed 1.5 instead of 1 or 2). The base is not super sturdy since the thing is top heavy, but for the price, that was to be expected.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleek. Love that that it has 2 ports, 1 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Its a good-looking product, no unnecessary flourishes. I've replaced my older Motorola car charger with this because I often found myself switching out cables to charge different devices, and you don't want to be doing that while you're driving and suddenly find out that one of the gadgets is about to die. The dual usb ports solve that. Only flaw is that the ports can be pretty snug at times, so you have to force some cables in, but hopefully they'll just loosen up over time. You get two chargers, one black, one white, wish I'd gone for black and black, the black goes well with my car's interior.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than no cover, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I actually put it on, the design didn't look very good with the half translucent/half transparent thing. However, its not too bulky so you don't notice it much after a while, except for when pressing the volume buttons. It probably won't protect from the worst falls, but prevents small scratches and stuff, so its better than using no cover.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great occasional reference, 4 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As has been said numerous times about this books, its one of those classics that you just must own. That said, it isn't the kind of book you'd read from cover to cover in one go. More likely, it will spend most of its time on the bookshelf, but act as a handy reference every once in a while when you're stuck on a problem with an algorithmic solution. Also helpful to prepare for coding interviews, although with the kind of time crunch you're likely under, you might prefer Cracking the Coding Interview.
