This is a cool walking stick. As my kids have gotten older we go camping and hiking more. There is a trail we like that has a small part where we hike through a stream in a small canyon. I normally just find a good stick and make due. But this time I used this walking stick. Man was I impressed. This thing is cool. Not only did it do a great job helping me stay balanced but the spring feature was really nice. One nice feature was how I could shrink it as to not take up a lot of space when I was not using it. And I can easily adjust it to my height when I get it out to use it. Disclosure: I received this product for free or on a promotional discount for my honest review and they are 100% my own opinions and I am not required to give a good review. I know how important reviews can be to people who are interested in buying this product, what I include is what I actually think about the product and my opinion alone.
I bought and installed Kaspersky 2015 Anti-Virus. My computer then kept locking up intermittently. But there was no obvious indication initially connecting this to Kaspersky. Some days not at all, some days the computer froze every hour. The CPU chip would go to 100% and stay at that level. The only choice was to reboot and sometimes that fixed the problem. I paid a computer shop to clean and scrub the computer. Turns out that Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 was causing the problem. I wrote Kaspersky Customer service and they wrote back saying this was a known bug and a fix was coming out mid-May. They wrote that to me on May 15th. Yet they advised me to uninstall the product and install their 2014 version. They sent me a link to do this old program install. That did fix the problem, but I spent weeks of aggrevation and money unnecessarily since they never notified me as a registered owner of a KNOWN problem with their software when they were aware of it. They should have notified customers when they became aware of this problem. Now they tell me the fix is not until mid-June. My computer is an HP Laptop running Windows 7 with an Intel medium speed chip. So a standard type system. I will not renew my subscription next year.
I like this machine, it is exceptionally better than the blade grinders I have had. The controls are not intuitive and there are many combinations, so balance may be difficult to find at times, especially if you have different grind preferences for different brews. The hopper does get a little static-y but that doesn't really bother me. I bought the grinder brush, because I will also likely use this to grind herbs once in a while and different coffees, if you take some time with a good brush, you really do not need separate machines. Very pleased with this over all.
