  • Matt Jessup - 3Active comes thruI recently purchased these 3Active glasses and like them. I use a 2012 Samsung UNEH556070 that links to glasses using (RF.) The 3Active "sunglass" style are much more stable than the Samsung ssg-4100 that are included with the television. The bows are so flimsy that both myself and friends find ourselves always fidgeting with them. Not to mention the excessive reflection you get because of the rectangular lenses. The ssg-4100 model is probably ideal for people who wear eyeglasses. The 3Active product is twice the price but is worth it. There are glasses made by "Expand" that require an (RF) dongle be attached to glasses for pairing. They are more than twice the cost of 3Actives. I've not tried those. The 3Active pair linked promptly with my tv and have not failed. Visual clarity is on par with the Samsung ssg-4100. Still, you get a little side lens reflection even in the darkest conditions. Not as bad though. I notice the 3d pop to be ever so slightly better with the 3Active pair. This is based on viewing Imax Hubble 3d, Titanic 3d, and Avatar 3d. I'm still new to the glasses so it will take awhile to go thru all my 3d blu rays. At this time I would recommend these to any Samsung 2012 3d tv owner as a better option for active shutter (RF) glasses. Additionally, I would say avoid buying glasses from a vendor called "Ultimate 3d Heaven." They claim their model is compatible with all active shutter Samsung tvs. However, they only pair with older sets that use IR.
  • Eric M Beavers - Happy with my resultsI purchased this product at a local raw food store for $30.

    Demographic: Male, late 20s, career frequent business traveler, foodie

    I was skeptical, but like to try before I judge. I chose to try this because I have been having heartburn and minor constipation for a few months. I really don't trust other products because of the chemicals they contain. This one, when you review the ingredients, is simply a massive dose of fiber, vegan style.

    My process started on a Sunday and I stuck with it perfectly for all 7 days. It is vitally important that you drink enough water. I have a 16fl oz. water bottle that I drank 5+ times a day (2 of which were the end of the day drink mix).

    I agree with other posters that the flavor is not the best. The morning packet (phase 1) tastes like dough. The end of the day drink is like a bitter strong tea (made me think of Matte which I like). I found that spreading it out over two doses (22oz worth of water) in succession from my water bottle worked well for me. If your normal eating habits are primarily tasty comfort foods (high fat, high sugar) then you will suffer. As a world traveler, I have survived much more "challenging" foods. By day 3 or 4 I was starting to enjoy the taste. The results, in my opinion, were worth the effort.

    This is not like a laxative. My visits to the restroom were delightfully regular (except for an obvious result of passing a large amount of fiber). The sense of urgency was what I normally feel, but after a month of constipation quite welcome because I could actually produce results!

    Results (2 weeks later):

    I feel awesome. The only time in my life I have ever felt this good (digestively) was when I went vegetarian for 40 days. My digestive discomfort is gone (untill I make bad choices again). During the cleanse I did not lose any weight, nor did I expect to. Due to a weight lifting and running regimen I maintained my weight. I did try to avoid caffeine, dairy, and wheat products but otherwise ate as I usually do.

    I weighed in today and have lost a few pounds. I think, with my ever-changing eating habits(on the road, no meal plan), this provided a nice balance. I plan to do this on a once-a-month to quarterly basis.
  • `1223 - Great game, problems at the beginning, improvements being made.While at its initial release, there was various problems(error 37), melee being 1 shot in inferno, shit legendaries, etc. The game has made leaps and bounds of improvement, especially with patch 1.0.5

    Ignore the 1 star reviews. If you read through them, you will see that about 70% of them are due to the first day server problems, and the other 30% are stupid and trivial reviews from Butthurt D2 fanboys.

    There's a reason this game has received critical acclaim from the professional know, the ones that aren't biased, whiny, and butthurt....many of these one star reviewers played the game through inferno, which is by far 20+ hours of game time. If the game is really that bad, why would they play it for that long? A game shouldn't get a 1 unless it's umplayable....this is far from it.

    The music is beautiful, the atmosphere is great, and the playable "classes" are different and fun to play. The story could use some work, but it is hardly terrible, just run of the mill.

    You without a doubt get your money's worth out of this game.
  • Joanna Daneman - Perfume Collector is delish!This novel is about an American woman in the 1950's who finds out she's been left a fortune by a woman she never met and never heard of. And...the woman is French, so off to Paris she goes, to meet with the solicitor who is handling the bequest. There she meets the mysteriously-named Madame Zed, creator of the Lanvin's signature "My Sin," who knew Eva D'Orsey, the dead woman, and Zed unfolds the story of Eva's life to Grace Munroe, the mystified American.

    The story jumps around in time, back to Eva's early days as a hotel chambermaid, to the Fifties, and after you get the mise en scene and characters, this stops being disorienting and starts being a lot of fun. The sights, smells, sounds and details of each time are lovingly recreated, making this a pleasurable novel to curl up with and enjoy. It reminds me of a cross between "Upstairs, Downstairs" and Colette's writing.

    Add in mystery, sex, misdeeds, regrets and two marvelous times lost (the Paris and New York of the Twenties and Fifties) and you have a tasty morsel indeed.

    I enjoyed every bite!
