5.0 out of 5 stars Will keep your phone dry, Sept. 30 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works as advertised. Used it while swimming in the ocean and it kept my phone dry. Phone was useable through the plastic but while in the water the pressure of the water made the bag touch or cling to the phone at various times making it less useable, but this would happen to any pouch bag of this type. Also, I was hoping that i could take some nice pictures while the phone was in it, but it`s not completely transparent and is slightly grey so pictures come out slightly fuzzy and dark. When used outside the water, dust seems to cling to the plastic. Otherwise, the pouch is very solidly built while remaining very flexible. Most importantly, it will keep your valuables safe and dry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Fit, Dec 21 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Fits my phone like a glove, it really is super slim and keeps the original curved shape of the phone. There's an image on the product page showing the bumper being only 0.7 mm and that's really what it is, it's just enough to keep the screen from touching any flat surface when face down. If you don't feel that this is thick enough, then you're better off looking for a thicker case, but in my case that's not what I wanted since I usually carry my phone around in my pocket. Also note that there is no bumper area at the top and bottom, only at the sides.

All the original buttons are accessible and the camera and flash are clearly visible. Only the cut around the headphone input is a bit close, but shouldn't be a problem for most headphones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works with Nexus 5, Dec 17 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is an awesome little cable adapter. I tested it with my Nexus 5 and hooked it up via HDMI to my TV. It displays everything shown on the phone's screen. Standard portrait mode takes up the center of the screen with black bars on both sides to replicate the phone's display, and changing the orientation to landscape mode fills up the whole TV screen. Tested web browsing, displaying photos, YouTube and games and the sound and picture quality are excellent. Of course playing games with an HDMI cable dragging down on your phone is not exactly that comfortable. There's also a micro USB port to plug in the phone's cable so that it can charge at the same time. Overall, I'm very impressed with this adapter.

Amazon.ca Rewards Visa Card from Chase

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly surprised, July 20 2013
I've been using this card for about a year now and it's become one of my main cards.
The cash back is excellent. As soon as you reach 2000 points, you get $20 off your whole statement - it's not as if you're accumulating points that you can only spend at Amazon.

As another reviewer wrote, it'd be nice if electronic billing was offered. You can manage everything through their website but there's no option to receive electronic statements, so paper statements from Chase will be sent to you every month.

Otherwise, it's overall an excellent card.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motherboard battery replacement, Feb. 26 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I used this to replace a dying Mitsubishi CR2032e lithium 3V battery on my motherboard that was having trouble storing the computer time. After replacing it, I no longer have to synchronize with an Internet time server each time I boot up my PC.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartwarming series, Oct. 14 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
ARIA is a unique series simply for the fact that it almost feels as if it's an anime that may never have been made if not for the tremendous amount of thought and care that was put into it. It really does not seem to have been simply churned out like so many other anime releases.

The series follows its adaptation of the manga closely enough, and in animated form will give the viewer as much a sense of discovery and wonder of Neo-Venezia as the characters experience themselves. The soundtrack is excellent and fits the mood of the show perfectly and series creator Kozue Amano's artwork is expertly brought to (animated) life.

Nozomi/RightStuf made a great decision in releasing the first season as a complete collection only. The boxset packaging is simple but well thought out. There are no English dubs, but only subtitles for the original Japanese voice track and since this release was really for the fans, all the bonus making-of and voice cast interviews are also included and subtitled.

It really may not be a series for everyone - there are no mind-bending story arcs or intense action scenes. Give it a chance though, and it will draw you in with its personality, humour and simple yet warm stories.

3.0 out of 5 stars Has some issues..., Nov. 10 2007
Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming Receiver works fine if you can get it to work. After plugging it in and trying several times to get the controller to connect to it, I was ready to conclude that it was either defective or there were some wireless interference issues.

After searching through many forums, it turns out that the gaming receiver sucks up a lot of power and your motherboard may not be able to handle it if it has a lot of other USB devices plugged in. I started up my PC with no USB devices plugged in, plugged in the gaming adapter and the controller connected. I plugged in my other devices one by one and it turned out the gaming adapter would no longer work if my LED backlit USB keyboard was plugged in (another power-hogger).

The solution I found online was to plug it into an externally powered USB hub (has its own power adapter). So a monitor with USB inputs would work fine. Unfortunately I didn't have one so I had to buy a hub. Works fine now, but beware since buying this might incur an extra cost just to get it to work.
