This review is from: Uno Game (Game)
Packaging was really lame. Rather than having a box to hold the whole deck of cards in a single stack, they split the stack of cards into two separate stacks in a taller box.

The game and cards themselves are great and exactly as you'd expect.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've been using this camera over the past month, and I'm quite satisfied.

It's surprisingly easy to get up and running, and there are a lot of advanced options you can dig into, like selecting motion detection reigons and turning off the LED power indicator permanently. Quite comprehensive customization options!

The biggest con, by far, is the lack of a battery backup inside the unit. If someone breaks into your house, sees the camera, and manages to run over and unplug it before a video clip has fully recorded, you're SOL. If you can deter someone from unplugging the unit for about 15 seconds, you should be in the clear. So, make sure to keep the camera out of sight, out of reach, and maybe even attach it to a UPS. Even the slightest battery-life that would make sure a video clip finished recording would have been a huge improvement.

Because of the look of the device, it doesn't really blend in with most environments. When the IR LEDs are on, you can see them with the naked eye in the dark. Being visible wouldn't be as much of a problem if it wasn't for the lack of battery backup as I stated before.

Setup of the more advanced features of the camera are a little scattered, and if you aren't tech-savvy, you might have a hard time setting it up to a wireless internet connection, for example. You can "setup" the camera from three different locations, each with restrictions on what you can setup.

The process of getting the camera to record to the cloud instead of just using the provided internal micro SD card was surprisingly clunky. They have you download a backup config file to do the switchover. Not difficult per se, but again, you need to be a bit tech savvy and need to be able to follow instructions.

So, it's definitely not the most user-friendly device, but since everything was in true, readable English, I personally had no problems figuring out how to set it up with a bit of trial and error, and some extra time and effort into learning how it works.

This review is from: Clue The Classic Edition (Toy)
Just as I remember it, with no unnecessary modernizations!

The revolver piece seems a little larger proportionally than the other pieces, but that doesn't affect gameplay at all.

Very similar to older Linksys routers, so if you're familiar with the setup process for an older Linksys router, you'll feel right at home!

The reset button is nested away, which was confusing at first, but it's probably better that it's recessed so it doesn't accidentally get pushed. Can't really complain!

The speaker quality is pretty awful—absolutely no mids or bass—so I wouldn't recommend this if you plan to enjoy FM radio.

It's not super intuitive to use, either. I haven't read the manual. Didn't think I'd need to.

That being said, it's a clock radio and it works as advertised. I chose this one for it's USB charging port, and I've had absolutely no problems with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty much what I was looking for, Aug. 24 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've had no problems with leakage at all, and the water tastes great!

The little spout cover is very flimsy, and every now and again, it'll catch on the fridge as I go to put it in and clip off and fly somewhere. I feel like the small tabs that hold this little cover on will probably break soon. Thankfully, it's not super meaningful.

I find I can only get about four glasses, and the reservoir takes up a fair amount of the liquid storage capacity. So if you drink lots of water like I do, you may want to go bigger.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They get quite warm... not hot enough that I feel like there's any risk, but they generate a lot of heat for LEDs. I haven't used them as much as I would have liked because they do seem to contribute to the heat of the room (and it's already quite hot in the summer).

When it comes to the remote and colours, the presets aren't really what they look like they should be based on the remote. The first button under red, which should be orange, is actually amber, and you're into yellow by the third button down. The yellow button is actually a very greenish yellow. So, although I can set my own DIY presets, I do wish the colour reproduction was a bit more accurate.

The 3M adhesive backing was not very effective for me, but that may have more to do with the uneven surface I tried to attach it to.

Besides the heat, these are pretty minor gripes.

Works perfectly with some games. For some reason, I was having weird problems with a popular Bond title (aiming would veer way off, and it was sort of random. Not a deadzone-related issue)
