2.0 out of 5 stars It's great - when it works!, Nov. 27 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this a couple of years ago and although the sound quality it receives and outputs into my hi-fi system is awesome ( I use the optical out), the bluetooth performance is really sketchy and always has been. (I have a Bose Bluetooth speaker which I use outside so my Bluetooth comparison is objective). With the Nyrius, the range for Bluetooth reception is only about 5 metres at most. With my Bose it's about 20 metres.
!
Also, with the Nyrius, if I am streaming from my laptop I get steady connectivity as long as there is line-of-sight with the receiver. So I have to find a spot for my laptop and leave it there. If I stream from my smartphone, it becomes a real pain! As I move around the room, the connection falters. If I leave the room - the connection completely breaks. Not so with the Bose speaker.

And now, it's not receiving at all! Basically it has crapped-out.

So, is it my transmitting device or the receiving device? I say it's the receiving device. So Nyrius, I'm going to have to replace you! And it won't be with another Nyrius

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect paint extension pole, Nov. 13 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazing short extension pole. The price/value of this product is excellent! Perfect diameter steel pole which doesn't bend while using it. This allows for faster and more even and accurate paint application than using the typical paint roller extension pole found in hardware stores.

I highly recommend this product

This review is from: The Sapphires (Audio CD)
Covers of some of the greatest soul sounds written. Really well done and there's no way these sounds won't evoke a groove. Part of the movie soundtrack included a couple of blue grass tracks which I don't like but the CD is well worth it. Great supplement if you've seen the movie and great CD if you havent

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great price, great quality, Oct. 1 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this product expecting it to be mediocre at best (as has been my experience with similar products in the past) but hoping it would live up to its description. I was more than impressed. The protective film goes on perfectly and with the cloth and applicator that comes with the product, it worked out perfectly. No bubbles. And the film itself is of great quality. Crystal clear so that my display is perfect The fit to the i6 face is also excellent so that I can use my fingerprint authentication without any problem. Also it doesn't look like a protective film

Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish the sound track compilation met the greatness of the series, June 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's 50/50 for me. Some awesome tracks which brought back the excitement of the show. But other tracks go well with the show but not so good for me from a purely listening perspective. If these CD tracks are available individually from a legit download site, buy them that way so that you can listen to them first

4.0 out of 5 stars Great product - careful what size you order, May 24 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Awesome product that meets everything it says it does. If you're into fitness and aerobics, then you should get the Charge HR so that you can track your heart rate

I love tracking my sleep cycle to correlate that against performance

The only reason I give it 4 out of 5 is because you have to guess at the size when you buy the product. The small is too small even for a petite and unlike a watch strap replacement, you cannot get a longer wrist strap. What they should do is to give you the circumference of the strap (min/max) so that you know what size you have to buy.

This review is from: Nostalgia (Audio CD)
You may remember Annie back from the Eurythmics days when she led the vocals as one member of a great band. This time it's all about Annie and she sings songs which really showcases her talent

Sit back, turn the lights down, put the headphones on, close your eyes and press PLAY. Then revel in vocal bliss as you sip your your Merlot!

This review is from: Mystery to Me (Audio CD)
Christine McVie and Mick Fleetwood's signatures are quite apparent in this album (great if you only discovered Fleetwood Mac after the arrival of Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham in 1974). If you're a 70s pop-rock/ folk-rock fan, this is a great album to buy
