3.0 out of 5 stars Went from Very Happy to a little Disappointed., March 18 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Have had the Otterbox for about a month now and am very happy with the fit and quality.

The case was easy to put on and all the holes/cut-outs are perfect. Despite other reviews, I find the volume and power buttons (which are now covered by the silicone case) very easy to press. The headset and charger plug-in areas/holes are covered by silicone flaps. These may require something to help pry them open for someone without nails. I can see that the silicone may begin to stretch and not fit as snugly back into these areas eventually.

The case allows the screen and camera areas to be recessed into the plastic so they no longer touch a surface when placed down. The exterior is a silicone - which is not as sticky as rubber, but not smooth either. It does not slip into a pocket as easily as a smooth surface will.

A significant amount of weight and bulk is added to the once slim/sleek phone. However, it does seem well protected. I won't be sticking it into my back pocket and I have found that it no longer fits into pockets (such as backpack and jackets) that are made for a standard sized cell phone.

Really like the built in screen protector. It is a thicker plastic, but it doesn't seem to interfere with the touch screen. It sits flat against the phone screen, so there is no "bounce".

All in all, a great purchase/investment and would recommend and buy again.

July 2013 Additional Comments
I do take the case apart and clean it out on occasion. Dirt does manage to get inside it all. After approximately 2 months of use, I noticed that the screen protector has come loose from the plastic casing. It appears to be glued in, however, after use and dirt getting into it, it has loosened up. Still use-able, but noticeable dirt around edge that won't come out without completely removing the glue and having a loose screen cover. The screen cover itself scratches very easily.

Approximately 4 months of use, the silicone has stretched out enough that I am pushing it back onto the case quite a few times a day. The bottom area of the case has stretched enough to cover the speaker and muffle my voice to the caller.

Protects the phone great, even through a few drops. Protection makes up for bulkiness. I did expect a longer life from the silicone casing for what you pay for the case. Probably would look at other options if in the market for a case. Currently speaking to Otterbox about warranty replacement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice product!, Jan. 28 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased this item to cover a love seat that the dogs liked to sit on. (Replaced blankets). Looks really nice and is super soft. It is also reversible. We use it on a smaller loveseat, so there is more material to hang over the arms and back - with a chunkier loveseat, the cover may shift around more. Will be buying another one for a second loveseat.

Kids love this storybook collection. Some similar stories to waht we already have, but still nice to have them all in one book. Great lengths for bedtime routine. Nice hardcover with illustrations throughout.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't quite meet our expectations., Dec 5 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cars 2 (DVD)
Understandably, it'a not Cars 1...but I was anticipating the similar family friendly, heart warming story we heard in the first. Unfortunately, it's not as well-loved as the first. Quality of animation is there, however, the storyline isn't as capturing or age-appropriate.

4.0 out of 5 stars For My Lightning McQueen Fan, July 31 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Like that the book has five quick stories (rather than purchasing 5 separate books). Large text with two levels of reading to expose kids to learning to read. Kids seem more interested in the colourful pictures. Unfortunately the binding is not well done. Individual pages seem to fall out very easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Addition to the Tall Tales DVD!, July 31 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After watching the Mater's Tall Tales on TV, was happy to see the book me out. My son loves the stories and the colourful pages. Each story is just long enough to keep his attention - and the perfect bed time story length. Nice size text for older kids to follow along when they learn to read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, July 31 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Purchased this after I had already started my business as VA. Was looking for some fresh information and any details I may have missed. The pages are sparse with large print and not a lot of type. The information was BASIC - nothing that couldn't be found with a quick Internet search. Was disappointed to say the least and returned the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Far So Good, July 31 2011
Purchased this book (Easy read)and completed my first week. Down 6lbs in 7 days. Easy to follow with easy to understand methods/explanations behind the diet. Recipes, sample menus, 100 foods to follow. Simple book to read and best kept on hand to refer to throughout the phases.

Like any diet, it has its pro's and con's. Sure, you won't like every recipe or food there, but there is enough leadway to make it into something you can enjoy with a little imagination. Really like that it is over 4 stages (approx 2 years) to establish the lifestyle change. Great support group on Facebook for motivation. Best of all is the cost - groceries! Eating healthier is more expensive, especially when following a predominantly protein diet, but you are not paying for supplements or unnecessary fees.
