JBM® LCD AC Power Supply Adapter DC 12 Volt 6 Amp Adapter Power Supply for LCD Monitor with Power Cord
JBM® LCD AC Power Supply Adapter DC 12 Volt 6 Amp Adapter Power Supply for LCD Monitor with Power Cord

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 6 Amp power source for many electronic items.needing 12 volts DC, June 26 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
There is not a lot one can say about this type of product
unless it arrived DOA which it did not.
The JBM 6 Amp. power supply is perfect for little 20 watt stereo amplifiers and a myriad
of other uses. The power "output" pin fits most and is the same size as the input socket found
on many laptops. So far it has performed as it should and hopefully plug in play and forget.
I use mine to power a 20 watt stereo amp with FM radio that requires 5 amps to run properly.

5.0 out of 5 stars A winner at the price and worth the wait, June 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Took 6 weeks to get but worth the wait and for the price, it's a dandy little
20 watt stereo amp with an FM radio chip.
The Kinter MA-120 is 3" w 5" L & 1 3/4" H - very light weight,
has decent sound and other features but does NOT come with the required
5 Amp 12 volt DC power supply. No concern for me but may be for some.
Bottom line. IMO a winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asus lives up to it's slogan. "in Persuit of Perfection.", June 19 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
EDIT: to review June 23 after initial review:
I am compelled to advise you about one caveat I discovered just after writing my original review.
This may or may not be of concern to you. The Li ion battery is listed as " Non User Serviceable.
Other ROG model are said to be similarity equipped. IMO This is a real fly in the my ointment.
Original Post:
Fully agree with the other person's review., "A killer Laptop."
I use this as a desktop replacement and of course unlike a mid sized tower, I can take this rockin` laptop
with me.
The Asus G751JT-HD72-CA outperforms the desktop it replaced with similar CPU and memory by a factor of 2.
One caveat in my opinion, the quick start guide insists the battery should be replaced when needed by a
qualified Asus technician.
On the UP side, the hard drives are very easy to access if you want to replace the
two - 1000 gb or 1 tb magnetic hard drives with SSDs
What caught me by surprise was the the operating system so called factory installation.
I was not aware that most if not all laptops, come with the operating system installed with
a recovery partition instead of supplying the user with the "COA" License key. As you know
that means. You cannot do your own installation unless you buy a copy of your OS of choice
and install it.
Bottom line, Asus lives up to it's slogan "In Pursuit of Perfection."

3.0 out of 5 stars OK product for the price., May 9 2015
Purchased this set to remove screws from Hard Drives and salvage powerful magnets.
Great price but the bits will "not" take much torque.
The case is obviously compact low impact plastic..
The set delivered more than expected but had very low expectations.
Recommend this set to anyone needing odd bits for a very occasional disassemble job.

1.0 out of 5 stars Team Associated - Reedy RC18B2 a dissapointment., May 8 2015
Team Associated - Reedy RC18B2 Radio Controlled car was purchased by my
Daughter for her Son, my Grandson in late April 2015.
The car arrived and I was asked to check things out.
The 7.2 volt 1100 MaH - NiMh battery was essentially
DOA showing only 0.073 volts.
The charger would not charge the battery because it was
also DOA. Amazon expedited the return and replacement
process and a new RC18B2 car arrived in a few days.

My Grandson brought the replacement RC18B2 car intoo my
work shop several minutes after trying it out, saying, “ Gramps, the ball joint broke.”
Indeed the right tie rod end was broken off. That happened during a trip
down our short paved driveway. ( 30 feet )
Other issues:
The cars’s cab shell is thin plastic that attaches to the chassis at one point front
and one point at the rear and secured with two clevis type pins. It gives the car a
very cheap & fragile look.
The tiny On-Off switch is located on the chassis inside the Cab among a bundle
of wires, meaning, you must remove the cab to switch off the car and disconnect
the battery after use and as per the instruction sheet.
The antenna is a flimsy wire that you must feed feed through a black plastic
tube about nine inches long. The antenna’s end cap will fall off and get lost
if not taped in place. I had to remove the antenna from its mounting point to
ready the car for return shipping. I pulled the antenna leed back out of the tube
to regain some slack but it simply broke off leaving part of the antenna wire stuck
in the tube.
Although the replace battery & charger worked, the battery charging process
is tedious and in my opinion, poorly designed. Battery charging connectors are
cheap, VERY difficult to connect and even harder to disconnect.
The charger is a small wall wart type with very light gauge power output wire
with a small white plastic connector ( female) that plugs into a short 4 inch
long adaptor wire (male) that in turn is plugged into the 7.2 volt battery.

The car itself is made up of many small parts, all of which are tightly integrated.
A bunch of decals are stuck on the car’s cab and were peeling off right out of the box.
I would NOT recommend this car to anyone of any age.
If you are an ardent DIYer and want the challenge of purchasing replacement
parts and doing constant repairs then the RC182B may be for you.
As Noted, this car never made it down the driveway and back before having a
steering component failure.
Amazon dealt with this issue promptly and
issued a credit to my Daughters C Card account after receiving the returned

4.0 out of 5 stars The SanDisk Ultra II SSD performs as expectred & more, April 27 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The SanDisk Ultra II 240 GB Solid State Drive arrived soon after ordering.
It replaces a very well known competitors SSD that was double the cost.
SanDisk provides downloadable software is called " SanDisk SSD Dashboard."
The dashboard application provides all the usual required tools to keep the SSD
healthy such as TRIM that takes the place of De fragmenting used on mechanical
HD drives.
Although this SSD is not drive C:\ with the operating system my fear of
doing so have been eliminated as I observe the SSD's performance.
Also, SanDisk has an on board sensor that allows you to monitor the drives
temperature, if , you have system monitoring software installed. The aforementioned
competitors SSD does not have that sensor..
Bottom line. SO FAR - the SanDisk SSD is performing to expectations and appears
to be the lowest priced model in the 240 GB SanDisk lineup.

4.0 out of 5 stars The F5 performs to my expectations of Remington, Feb. 28 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The Remington F5 at first glance is a very attractive precision
shaver. I really like the led charge level gauge.
The F5 replaces a worn out the Remington MS2-390.
There are several major improvements over the old shaver.
1. The F5 appears to have an improved method of attaching
the cutter blades but like the MS2-390, they will fall out if you
are not careful.
2. The LED charge level indicator lights give you a batter idea
of remaining charge.
3. The F5 delivers a real close shave but like "any" razor"
it takes a few passes and proper use.
I cannot comment on how long the cutter and comb will last
because its less than two weeks old. My guess is 2 to three
months.
All things considered, I am happy with this product.
Four stars because I seldom rate any product as "perfect."

I purchased two different bum bags to assure at least one of them filled my need. This bag will at least hold my wallet and other small objects. However, much like the other bum bag I purchased, usability and value will depend upon what you want to.

3.0 out of 5 stars The value & Usability Depends on Intended Use, Jan. 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The value and usability of this item questionable for me.
Although it does not come close to meeting my needs it may for someone else.
A struggle to get my wallet into either of the two pockets, clearly, not meant for that object.
If I have the pockets facing front, the buckle digs into my back. Sliding pockets to the left puts the buckle on the right and that works better.
This bum bag was a bummer for me but it may be of use to somone wanting it for holding paper money and/or small flat objects such as credit cards.
As a fanny pack or bum bag. It seems reasonably well made but will NOT fill someone with a very large waste. Trusting the reader finds this info. useful.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice light but with a bracket that is tedious to attach, Jan. 23 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This little light bar bar is In my opinion good value for
it's brightness. I power it with a pair of 7.5 AH SLA batteries in parallel.
At 18 watts it is quite bright and will serve very well as an emergency or
work bench light source during a power failure.
One caveat is the supplied mounting bracket and the way
it attaches to the light. It is "VERY" tedious to attach via the
two plated Allen screws. If you are not a patient person, you
may find attaching the mounting bracket a little frustrating.
If not for that I would have giv en the light 5 stars.
