  • J KRUPP - The best deal on the best 3D glasses

    These 3D glasses are just as good as the panasonic glasses if not better, because they are rechargable where the panasonic's are not. They fit my big head well & have a comfortable view of the T.V. from all angles. I can't see why anyone would pay more for the panasonic glasses when these are in my opinion just as good if not better....

  • J. Thomas - The drug book you will want to have

    This book is very clear and easy to read. A need to have for transcriptionists and other medical support staff.

  • Jeremy "JO Cool" - Men with small hands will love it too!

    Yes, even the smallest man hands will tend to cramp after long usage, but that happens with everything we do too much with our hands ;-). The real benefit here is for those men who have small hands like me. Small hands has a somewhat bad stigma in our society, as do small feet, but with this slimmer elegant designed pen, my hand appears bigger to everyone, including myself, and it gives me more self confidence, not to mention extra glances from women who watch me write!

  • Victoria Allen "vla" - So far so good!

    I saw a lot of negative comments before purchasing; however, I was able to install it without too much issue. My biggest issue was simply finding out my old MS account settings so that I could get to the install site!

    Haven't fully tested it, but have Outlook up and running. Visually different, but it was already a change going from Windows XP to 8, so I'm embracing (or trying to) an entirely new environment. Might as well plunge into it completely!

    I think that most issues were probably caused by people that know just enough to get themselves into real trouble; or, by those that don't know enough without being specifically taught each slight change. This isn't meant as a slight to anyone, but we're all at different levels. Up until 6 years ago I was in CS/IT/Networking. I know enough to know I don't know a thing about the newer systems and technologies. That gives me a healthy respect for carefully following the instructions. That said, someone without that background may get into trouble if they get off-track; while those that are fully up to speed in recent technologies may skip ahead too quickly. Long and short - just follow the instructions carefully and you should be fine.

  • klax37 - My favorite baby product!

    I LOVE this stroller. I love this stroller so much, that even though my son is now 12 weeks old and I've used the stroller nearly every day since he was born, every time I use it I find myself exclaiming, "I'm so glad we got this stroller!" Yes, it's an expensive stroller, but it's amazing!

    Best features:
    Parent-facing. I love that my baby can face me instead of facing out. Initially I was sold on this for the parent-baby interaction. Walking with your baby is such a great time to talk and explore! Having the baby face you also reduces the risk of over-stimulation. Recently, I also saw a new study that showed that forward-facing strollers can create anxiety in babies before they have established object permanence. Still, I realize that one day my little guy may want to face the world, so I love that I can easily flip the seat!

    Bassinet. It didn't take long for my son to reject the bassinet because he wanted to be more upright and be able to see around, but I LOVED it when he was a newborn.I felt like he was so much more protected and sheltered in this when I took him out when he was really little. People love babies, but you don't really want them sticking their noses in your newborn's face. The bassinet really prevented that. Love that it was included instead of being an extra cost. We also used it for naps around the house and for him to sleep in overnight when we took him to New York City as a 9 week old.

    Mosquito net. Genius. Our son was born in late May and the mosquitoes have been really bad this year. There have also been a lot of cases of West Nile around us. The mosquito net allows us to walk our baby in the evenings without worrying about him being bitten. I do wish the net fit just a little more snugly around the seat, but it still does its job well.

    Smooth ride. This thing glides along like a beauty and turns on a dime. I feel so bad when I see people grinding along in their plastic wheels. This pushes well over dirt, grass, gravel and sand.

    Basket. This really does have a large, useful basket. Before I had my baby, I really didn't get what the big deal was about big baskets, but now I do! I put my fully packed Jujube BFF underneath along with my ergo baby carrier and there's still room to spare. I love that there are 2 pockets in the front of it that can be used for things you want to keep track of (my son's sunhat and my water bottle, usually).

    Fold. It would be nice if this had a one-handed fold, but I still find this to be easy enough. I like that it stands when folded. It snaps open easily also.

    Rain shield. Love that this was included. It fits really nicely over the toddler seat.

    Canopy. It really is big. With it all the way up and the sunshade out, my baby is totally shaded except for any sun that enters from the side. I wish they had little pull-out side sun shades like the main shade that could block this side-entering sunlight. I hate to have to put even a light blanket over my baby's legs in the heat of summer, but I have to do it to prevent sunburn.

    Color. My husband got really excited about the orange color, which was enough for me! It's nice and bright and I love the black frame. We've been using this stroller a ton and it has stayed super clean. The fabric seems very durable.

    Additional accessories that we purchased:
    Infant insert. As I mentioned, my son tired of the bassinet fairly quickly. The infant insert allowed us to put him in the toddler seat in a reclined position, which he thoroughly enjoys. He is 99th percentile in length, so he's starting to be too long for the insert at 12 weeks, but that's not really the insert's fault.

    Bassinet rain shield. Never needed it, but was glad we had it. Given the short duration of time that my son tolerated the bassinet, we probably could have done without it.

    Britax parent console. The uppababy console didn't get very good reviews, so we got this one instead. It gets great reviews and has worked perfectly for us.

    Carseat adapter. We have the Chicco Keyfit 30. The adapter is very secure. I wasn't sure we needed this since we had the bassinet, however I'm glad we got it. It's great for quick trips into the store when I don't want to wake the baby. Also, my son is pretty heavy for his age, so we can't carry the carseat very easily- it's nice to be able to put it in the stroller for transport.

    Accessory we decided against:
    Bassinet stand that turns into a hamper. Nice idea, but I worried about its stability with an excitable dog (boxer) in our house. I also want sure about how safe this would be for overnight sleep because ventilation is a key anti-SIDS measure.

    My only complaint:
    The peekaboo window is nice and big, but the holes in the mesh are so big that bugs get through easily! In the hot summer, with the seat parent-facing, the window provides a great opportunity to get a breeze going through the stroller...but not when little bugs are flying in! I've used the stroller with the mosquito net down and seen bugs inside that entered through the window mesh. As a result, we've had to keep the window closed. Seems like this could easily be solved by using a finer mesh.

    This stroller has paid for itself over and over again in ease of use and performance!
