  • TimmyK - Catches virus's that others miss

    When you own a windows computer; you must own antivirus. Although my computer has a built in antivirus; Webroot has already found many viruss that my bullt in software missed. I will continue to use this great product

  • Bssgrl - no probe included?

    I was really disappointed when I received this item because I thought it was authentic to TSA, and I was expecting to be able to perform a full body cavity search by the Trained Sexual Assailants, and that it would include the probes they use to molest you publicly. I was also disappointed that the detector was not able to destroy my insulin supply as known to happen when it is run through the scanner, as this also a known practice. How on earth am I supposed to educate my children on how their rights are basically in the toilet, and that their liberties and freedoms are an illusion if your product does not work correctly? I was also hoping that there would be a component available that would enable attachment of surveillance cameras and a RFID or Retinal Scanner, another needed item in order for my children to completely understand their enslavement. Hoping that these additional items atre available soon!!!!

  • Doug - Good camera bag

    To my chagrin, I discovered that most camera bags are not waterproof. After, of course nearly losing my equipment to a beautiful S. Florida late Winter rain. When I looked into purchasing a waterproof camera bag most of them where prohibitively expensive. Then I chanced upon this one. It fits inside my Timbuk2 messenger bag, which is of course waterproof. I bought 2. A medium (which is the largest size) and a small to try in my Chrome bag which is also waterproof(It fits in a small chrome bag perfectly). Unintended bonus: neither bag screams STEAL ME, I'M LOADED WITH EXPENSIVE PHOTO EQUIPMENT!
