5.0 out of 5 stars great for movies, July 7 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Awesome headphones for watching movies. My significant other gets nightmares easily so i'm stuck watching violent TV shows/movies/games with the headphones on can't say i mind. Very comfortable for long periods of use (after about 3 or 4 hours my ears get sweaty so i take a few minute break). Not at all boomy as some other reviews mentioned.

The proprietary cord is a disappointing feature, but at least they give you 3 cords. Really really wish they would accept any headphone cord.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing a long time Oral B customer., July 7 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The battery doesn't hold a charge for longer than a week and takes nearly a full day and a half to charge. I'm not sure if this is normal or my unit is defective but it is annoying. I have an Oral B electric toothbrush thats a few years older that charges full in an hour and holds the charge for 2 weeks. Really disappointed that their premium product would perform so poorly. The blue LED's are also very (very) bright, and blink while charging.

Looks wise it is very nice looking. I really like the new design and the colour (much better than the boring looking light gray on the older model). Also it comes with a couple heads so i didn't have to buy a refill for a few months. Well packaged.

For potential travellers: the power plug is only rated for North American voltage so don't try using it overseas (even with an adapter) you can damage the battery. I had to leave this brand new one at home and bring my old Oral B to Europe because that would accept international voltage.

Overall very disappointed and will be looking at getting a different brand when this one dies (which at this rate i'm sad to say probably won't be long). I've been a long time Oral B customer and advocate since my first electric toothbrush but am extremely disappointed at the drop in quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars exactly as ordered, April 24 2013

pros:
Great ipad case if you're looking for something that has a notepad in it. Makes it easy to take to conferences or use for work (instead of just playing games on it). The pen holder is what you'd expect. If you remove the notepad/pen the case works just as well. The pad side has slits in it (top bottom middle and sides) so you can put other stuff in there, like business cards or non-proprietary notepads. Works perfect for lefties because you can put the ipad upside down and still access all the controls. great case overall.

cons:
no camera hole. pouch that holds the iphone gets a bit loose after a while: ipads in no danger of falling out, just annoying that it has some wiggle room. Really heavy (like triple the weight of the ipad itself), i find myself taking it out to read and stuff, and only putting it in the case when i'm out.

About what you expect. Cheap plastic, shoddy construction, i feel like i'm taking a risk every time i use it; waiting for it to crack under my weight, but it hasn't let me down yet.

You get what you pay for.

High quality and freaking huge coverage. My mouse slides across it like it's lubed up. Definitely would buy it the next time i need a mousepad.

Attracts dirt like a mofo though.

5.0 out of 5 stars best mouse eva, Sept. 12 2011

coming from a logitech g35 it was a pleasure. the lights can be annoyingly bright at night but you can disable them.

I used to have the 1800DPI model and liked it so much that i bought a second one (which is now 3500DPI). The 1800dpi one got about 3 years of daily (5 hour+) gaming/browsing use. I never treated it special, i sat on it a few times by accident, dropped it plenty of times and slammed it most of the times i lost a match. After i bought the new one i brought my old one into the office and it's made the transition of gaming to word processing quite well. With the lights off it doesn't even look like a gaming mouse.

My only complaint is the scroll wheel isn't "perfect". By this i mean on both of my models sometimes it'll skip a line (instead of scrolling smoothly). This is rare but annoying. Also with the scroll wheel light on, dirt shows up very easily.

Overall A+++++ will buy again.

Prior to this i had a very very basic understanding of how engines worked, and no clue as to how turbo's worked. This explained how turbos work (and essentially because of this forced you to understand how engines work). I'm glad to say that it taught me everything a beginner would need to know about turbos, many times going beyond my level of understanding.

I learned a lot and i plan on keeping the book to reference in the future. It really helped me understand EXACTLY how and why turbo's work the way they do. I loved every minute of it.
