I have been using for about a month, and I am happy. What I like are…
- Price is reasonable.
- Looks very stylish (the top panel is glass. So the center is transparent) but at the same time sturdy.
- Turns on only when i step on, and it seems to be automatically shuts off a couple of seconds after stepping off.
- The large screes is very easy to see.
- I cannot talk about the precision, but at least it seems very sensitive. It recognizes the difference when I stepped on with a couple of magazines.
One thing I wish the scale could do is to change from lb to Kg. But I guess that’s not a problem for most customers in the states.

I absolutely loved “The Catcher in the Rye.” Thought it was an excellent book with an extremely interesting main character, Holden Caulfield. I’m not going to give away any plot material for those who haven’t yet read the story, but I would like to say that I really loved how easily I could understand Holden’s thoughts. Salinger did a great job of portraying a person like Holden Caulfield. Too bad Salinger never allowed it to become a movie…

I was always certain I would@ never have any desire to read the Twilight books, but I was a little curious, so I downloaded a sample of the first novel on my Kindle to check it out. To my surprise, I was intrigued and impressed by the first chapter, and so I decided to purchase the whole book.
I read it in five days, and it would have been fewer days if I didnt have to work and sleep. It was so well written, suspenseful, and engrossing that I couldnt put it down. The relationship between Bella and Edward is so beautiful and well developed, and the vampire world really pulls you in. The author has a natural ability to keep you turning the page. Very hard to put down and definitely worth the ride. it’s easy to see why so many people have gotten sucked in to the Twilight mania.

I thought this book was enjoyable. Toward the end I didn’t want to put it down. There was a slow start toward the beginning (as some of the characters were introduced), but it had several twists and turns and the slower part wasn’t even too dreadful or long-lasting. I especially enjoyed the story when they go back to him as an older man. I was incredibly delighted with the way the book ended and would highly recommend this book for anyone looking for something different.

This is a great purchase for anyone who wants to make some high-quality photo prints! Can you do better at a professional shop? Probably, but not by much. For the home or office, there isn’t much else out there that could do a better job, especially if you don’t need to produce extremely professional photographic images. You will certainly think these are, however, and so will anyone who sees them. Also, for this price, you absolutely will not find a better deal. I was shocked when I saw the results, knowing how much this unit cost. Granted, it was more when it first came out, so if you were waiting on the right printer for the right price, stop waiting! Canon has a long-standing history and reputation for high-quality photos and reasonable rates. You will not find a better printer at this price level than the Pixma Pro9000 MkII. Unless you plan on scrutinizing the images for Pentagon-level research, then you will be amazed at the clarity and resolution.
The eight toner cartridges might seem a bit much, but they are all there for a reason. The setup too a bit longer than I’m used to, and I’ve set up a fair amount of printers in my day. But, it’s all worth it. The manual is also a bit bulky and lengthy, but for good reason. One last little complaint… my first print job (aside from the test page) did not go through at the first try, but I made one minor adjustment and it was just fine.
I could not speak more highly about the end result of this product, though. I was really amazed and impressed by what we ended up with. My friends tell me this printer should have cost four to five times what we paid for it. Take that for what you will. This was definitely the best printer purchase I think I’ve ever made, though, and I could not be happier with it.

I really enjoyed this book but had to put it down a few times due to the graphic nature of some of the incidents. I would recommend it to a friend with a warning: “not for the faint of heart.” I guess it was so hard to read because I know most of it could have been true. The author did a great job in her research on the time period.
