Watch out, don't let the name deceive you. Although Quickbooks is a wonderful package on the PC, this Mac version is awful especially considering the price. If it were selling for 75% less, I would still slam it but at the price offered here and everywhere, it's an embarrassment.
My eleven yaer old daughter and I enjoyed reading this book together, it has been one of the best night reading we've had together and sometimes when she read all by herself she would tell me all about it. We highly recommend this book
I say as far as trampolines go this one is perfectly fine and adequate, sturdy, all that stuff. Absolutely no complaints. The netting seems to be attached fairly well and is good quality along with all the other parts. Now, I can't really say that I understand quality in regards to trampolines but as an average joe I'm quite satisfied. One thing that I wasn't expecting and don't know if this is a standard trampoline thing is it came with a little net that is attached to the bottom for shoes and whatnot. I like the little net bag.
These knee sleeves are a must for anyone that lifts during their leg days. I have "rough" knees from playing catcher in baseball for 20 years of my life so I am always been concerned when squatting that my knees would give out. I have been looking in the market for some knee sleeves to use during my leg day and I have found everything that I need with these!! They seriously are perfect! They fit to size and they fit snug. I can feel the support that they provide to my knees when squatting and it gives me that reassurance that I can go a little heavier than I previously had because I know that my knees won't be giving out at all! Seriously, these things are a life saver. They do get quite sweaty (but I'm a sweaty person) when I'm doing my workout but after an hour and a half workout they are extremely easy to take off, they've never gotten stuck or been hard to get off. I have thrown them in the washer after my leg workouts and let them air dry and they are still the same product that I had before being ran through the washer! I highly recommend these to anyone that is a serious lifter. They are the best! I received this product at a discounted price in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. If my review helped you in any way, I'd really appreciate if you would click the yes button to indicate that it helped you. I honestly try to help others with all my product reviews, because that is what I rely upon for my purchases too. Feel free to comment with any product questions you may have and I will do my best to answer them promptly!
My wife and I bought this machine over Christmas. It is huge, installing it took about 2 hours, and the hardest part was moving it from the curb into the room we wanted it in (didn't pay to have Sole do this). As far as quality, the thing is great, looks sturdy, feels good too. The warranty is great as well: we had to have a repair guy come out to decrease the resistance on it and it was a pretty straight forward deal with no hassle. If that is the warranty service that we can expect for the next 5 years, I will be very pleased. Now for the not so great part. Both my wife and I are fairly short and light (5'4" - 5'6" and 135-145lbs) and the resistance on Sole machines is much harder than we expected. We tested out the machine at Dick's and loved it, but we didn't pay attention to the resistance. Even after having the resistance adjusted, pedaling at the low levels of resistance is very hard (1-5; there are 20 total levels). What is irritating about this is that the pre-programmed exercises are not very useful. Instead of having a gradual climb to exertion (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7, etc) it goes from easy (1) to hard (5). Pedaling at 10 is impossible for us to do for any reasonable length of time (i.e. 5 minutes). Maybe this is because these machines are built for heavier people and the extra weight makes it easier to get the peddles to move. We went back to Dick's after getting the machine and got on the E95 (the top model sold by Sole) and it felt the same with regards to the resistance. So, my only word of advice is that you get on the machine and actually do a workout (if possible), because it will definitely suck if you get this machine and the only level of resistance that works for you is 1 (and returning it is almost impossible unless you figure out how to get it all back into the box and onto the curb). BTW, I am in great shape and planned to use this machine as cross-training to supplement my running. I also have worked out on ellipticals at gyms (mostly Precor) and there is a significant difference in the resistance level feel between Gym machines and this. All that to say that even a moderately in shape person might find this hard--try it out. Other than that, great machine and experience.
