4.0 out of 5 stars Abrupt ending, 13 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An interesting read, some unexpected plot elements, a plausible action thread, but a very abrupt ending. Almost as if a sequel is planned.

2.0 out of 5 stars Badly written, weak plots, lots of typos on my Kindle edition, 12 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Watchers (Kindle Edition)
This book starts interesting, but later on one discovers that the plot is weak and has many logical problems.
Plus, my Kindle edition has many typos. I've now deleted it from my e-reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 star cable, 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I needed a 10m HDMI cable to connect my Blu-Ray player, which sits below the projection screen, to the ceiling-mounted projector at the other end of my living room. The cable had to go through a plastic conduit along the skirting, then through the wall up to the ceiling. The LCS ORION ULTRA SERIES was exactly what I needed and more than did the job - the cable is very sturdy, looks good and expensive, and the image is flawless.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice set, and a good tool, but build quality is less than expected, 5 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had a rotary tool kit, smaller and of low power, which obviously had its limitations. I was attracted by the Dremel range, especially for the cutting attachments that one can buy for it, and the workstation. The Dremel 4000 looks sturdy and the power and RPMs make a big difference.

However, I am slightly dissapointed by the build quality of this kit, tool and attachments. The tool and the attachments (shaping platform, detailer grip) and the grey box all look built in a hurry, with molding deffects, sharp edges, and the branding labels misaligned. The grey box does not look like the box from Dremel's site, which had indicators on where the various bits go. One does not expect Apple quality here, but this is a precision tool and its build should reflect that.

The biggest surprise was the accessories set, which does not match what's listed on the box. Parts 404, 107, 150 and\
85422 were missing together with two of the 432s. BUt I have 24 of 411 (or 413, can't tell), 10 of 414, 4 of 429 and 4 of 408. My box was sealed, so it must be Dremel's and not reseller's fault. Can't tell yet which bits are more useful, but it seems like someone just packed a random fistful of them.

My 4000 is labeled Dremel Europe, Made in Mexico.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does not fit the Kindle Touch, 8 July 2012
This cover does not fit the new Kindle Touch. The bottom corner straps are much too tight, and because the Touch is somewhat taller than the Kindle 4, the top sticks out of the case by 1/3 of an inch :(

2.0 out of 5 stars Compass stops working after a while, 14 Oct 2011
Nice design, I like the look a lot. However, there are some problems: (1) the compass stops working after a while - I got a replacement watch and now it has broken as well, (2) the strap is not as sturdy as it looks - after a while it starts breaking apart, (3) the hands are similar in color to the background - this makes the time difficult to read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as wide as pictured! I feel cheted!, 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What I wanted to buy was the wide 364XL cartridge, as pictured on the Amazon page. However, I got the 2x one, which is a disappointment. For online purchases, it is CRUCIAL that the picture shows the actual item, there should be no exceptions to this. If HP changed the size, Amazon or the seller should change the picture. I can't help feeling cheated ... :(

2.0 out of 5 stars Poorly finished, 23 July 2011
This review is from: Robopocalypse (Robo 1) (Paperback)
This book started promising, but then evolved into a half-brained, predictable, non-imaginative tale of a small band of soldiers. Quite a disappointment and definitely not worth the quite high price (both on Amazon and B&N).

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice tool but tire lever snapped at first use, 5 Jun 2011
Very nice tool, all that I need for mountain and road biking. The chain repair tool once really saved the day. However, one of the plastic tire levers snapped when trying to remove the tire to repair a puncture. I thought they are reinforced with metal but they are not.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice bike but the suspension requires too much maintenance, 15 July 2008
I do not recommend buying this bike if you don't want to dedicate time to regularly servicing it. The HeadShok suspension cartridge needs regular oil refills to not lose performance (the shop will charge you 45 for this), the air pressure has to be checked before each ride and you have to carry the shock pump with you.
The pedals it came with wore out after the first 100 km. You'll find that the saddle and grips have to be upgraded because the ones it comes with are very uncomfortable.
My personal advice: if you care more about the ride than the bike, don't buy it!
