They seem to be charging to a comparable level to fresh batteries, so I would purchased again if necessary. Recommended.

This review is from: Finale PrintMusic 2011 (CD-ROM)
Who gave it 5 stars when asked. I don't think he uses the advanced features, but he's had no crashes or great frustrations, so it works for him.

Does everything required. Only quibble - display fits 8 numbers across, so 10 digit dialing causes the numbers to wrap to second line. No big deal though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works well for connection to electric piano, June 27 2013

I find the bass a little over the top, but my sons are the piano players and simply love it. It's in the basement on a concrete floor and you can still feel just it two floors up when they get silly and up the Bass to near max.

When I demand the bass be turned down, the tone really is quite lovely and it gets 5 stars from my sons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good introduction to Perl, June 27 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Learning Perl (Paperback)
especially for someone who's been programming for a while. It is a read-through book rather than a reference work, which is good because Perl is different enough that it's easy to miss how it differs from the standard languages like Java, C, etc.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works nicely - easy to read., June 27 2013

You need a decent thermometer and humidity gauge? This is it.

I would have preferred the temperature and humidity sizes reversed, but temperature is still readable from 4-5' away.

What more can be said? Cleans easily. Nicely fits my 9 x 13 roasting pan. One of the only racks of its size I was able to find. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfectly suited for the "lay-man", April 30 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I found this book ideally aimed at my level of expertise (computer science background with a touch of physics). The book was practical (not a huge amount of derivation) & the diagrams clear.

I also really appreciated the PDFs being available for free on-line. On the basis of the first 4 chapters, I purchased the book.

Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good solid introduction to Windows 7, Nov. 14 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm a little more technically oriented than the target market, but I found "Windows 7: The Missing Manual" provides a quite decent amount of technical background to make this book well worth reading. It worked (for me) as something to read when I had spare time rather than a reference, where I'd want a level of detail provided by Internet articles or, in several cases, "Windows 7 Annoyances".

By giving a good solid overview of Windows 7 features, it introduced me to a number of useful features I'd have otherwise skipped.

Hm. Hard to find 20 words - the price was cheap, the product seems entirely reliable, I am a well satisfied customer.
