  • Geri Crouse - Buyer Beware

    The stringing of this guitar is horrible. Out of the box we connected it to our xBox 360 and started following the easy tuning directions. However, two of the strings could not be tuned. One string snapped during the initial tuning process as it was telling us it needed to be tightened. When we contacted the seller he told us we need to go to a music store to get it stringed and offered us $4 as compensation. Will keep you posted on what the music store says about restringing and the cost.

  • Jeffrey N. Giampetro - Excellent !!!

  • SnugglyGirl - The best desk mate I've ever had

    This is one of my new favorite things on my desk. I bought two of them and I have already almost filled them. They charge really fast and my phone can't tell the difference between being plugged in to this and plugged straight into the wall and most of the smart phones out there now will definitely let you know if you could be charging faster. I can't recommend this enough, especially for the price. It has plenty of charging ports, the average person probably would not need more than one. I'm not quite average with my charging needs though, so having a second one was required and I'm glad I thought ahead. Having only one plug in the wall has helped me feel slightly less self-conscious about my usb-rechargeble addiction and I can actually use my outlets again. I definitely recommend this for anyone who's got a lot of usb rechargeable devices of any type. I haven't found a thing that stresses this yet and I have a lot of toys to plug in at once. I've had one of mine plugged in the entire time I've had it (I don't recommend leaving them plugged in all the time, btw, I'm just lazy) and it's never heated up or given me any cause to think that it would overheat. The stand is small but works well on the desk and the entire unit is small enough that it doesn't obstruct my monitor even sitting right in front of it. Definitely a good buy if you need a good, very portable usb charger.

  • Lawrence Johnson - Cool, but be careful

    This knife has one tool too many. I started playing with it on the bus on my way to work, and I accidentally impregnated the woman sitting next to me. I never found the tool responsible, but when I do, you can be certain I will be demanding a full refund.
