4.0 out of 5 stars Permatex Clear Silicone Adhesive - 3 oz., August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Permatex clear silicone adhesive is a high-quality product that performs as expected. I have used it on many projects successfully. My only issue is with the plastic cap. Do not try to over tighten as it develops a small hairline crack, and the next time you use the product, it is now solid.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oppo BDP-103 Blu ray player - Nothing touches it for the price!, August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
My first experience with Oppo was with the purchase of a BDP-83 player from Amazon in 2009. It was hard to spend $500 on a less than well known brand, but the lavish reviews made it tempting. The results were justified. The player had excellent picture and sound, played every disk format I owned flawlessly, and Oppo support continuously provided firmware updates to keep the unit relevant. Fast forward to 2013, and I added a new HDTV that offered 3D support. So now we have the BDP-103 that moves everything up a notch again with 3D, even better video processing with the Marvell QDEO chip, and even more detailed audio. There are additional inputs and outputs, but one that really stands out for me is the two HDMI 1.4 video outputs. If you already own an expensive A/V receiver that serves you well, you're not inclined to replace it just for 3D support. Well Oppo was on top of this issue by offering a split A/V mode. HDMI 1 (with QDEO video features) goes directly to your 3D HDTV, and HDMI 2 goes to your receiver to provide audio. Now, that's great engineering. You may have paid $500 for the player, but you probably saved more than that for not having to purchase a new receiver. You can check other reviews for more detailed specs, but as for me, this product gets the highest recommendation!

4.0 out of 5 stars Black & Decker 15557 Drill Bit Set, August 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Was looking for a backup set of inexpensive drill bits for several minor home projects, and this Black & Decker set filled the bill. Cannot attest to their long term durability as so far have only used the 3/16 and 1/4 bits and they worked fine. I'm sure the thinner bits will need more care as they don't seem as substantial as more expensive brands, but the price was right. The rubber organizer strip is nice, but doesn't hold the bits that snugly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Glade Cashmere Woods scented oil refills, August 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Glade Cashmere Woods scented oil refills have a pleasant, but not overpowering fragrance. This is one of Glade's older packaged products. Their newer product containers are redesigned to work with both Glade and Airwick dispensers. It took a lot of effort to make these fit in an Airwick candle, losing a lot of the oil - not worth the effort. When you're shopping for these scented oils, make sure it is labeled properly for compatibility with both brands.

4.0 out of 5 stars Horror of Dracula Blu ray - A film with Bite!, August 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you enjoy the classic Hammer horror films, Horror of Dracula is the jewel in the crown. This set includes both DVDs and Blu ray. There are also extensive features and interviews. The LionsGate 2012 blu ray includes two restored versions, one from 2007 and a second from 2012 that includes some missing footage found in Japan. This really is an intense effort to make this film appear the best it will ever be in a home environment. By today's blood and gore standards, this 1959 film is rather mild, but Christopher Lee's Dracula portrayal is indelible. Now, if this film interests you, don't just run out and purchase it. This set is a Region B (European) Blu ray. It will not work in a North American (Region A) player. You need to have either a Region B player handy or a multi-region player. If you can handle this, it is well worth adding to your film collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Febreze fabric refresher with the scent of Gain, August 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I'm sure you're aware of the odor reducing properties of Febreze fabric refresher and the fact that it comes in a wide variety of scents, plus unscented. But here they have hit on a perfect combination, the power of Febreze plus the clean scent of Gain detergent. Highly recommended!

This Sense & Spray refill has a nice mix of Lavender and Vanilla scents that remind one of a Spring meadow. Might be too intense for some areas of a home, but for a bathroom, its a winner!

3.0 out of 5 stars Stadler Form Demineralization Cartridge, August 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you own a Stadler Form humidifier that uses these cartridges, they are essential to reducing the white dust that forms in your household when using an ultrasonic humidifier. They do not clear up the problem entirely. Dusting is still necessary. The only thing better is going to the expense of purchasing or making your own distilled water. Secondly, the cartridge creates a slime-like residue in the water chamber of the humidifier that's another cleaning chore. These cartridges are not inexpensive (even at Amazon pricing)probably because of the nice plastic housing. Depending on the hardness of your water, and if you use your Stadler Form humidifier constantly, you will be spending between $90-180 a year on cartridges, a not insubstantial sum.

For my use, Alliance #107 rubber bands have proven to be a strong, high quality product. They hold their stretch well and are made of a high quality rubber. Couldn't ask for better!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Lite Pink Lemonade, August 11, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Crystal Lite Pink Lemonade is a refreshing drink from powdered concentrate. Each packet makes about two quarts of finished product that comes very close to the taste of real lemonade. Personally, I find it a bit sweet and not as tart as the real thing. Adding a bit of concentrated lemon juice clears this up. A small point: no matter how well you stir the mix, there is always some white residue that settles, but causes no issues. An enjoyable summertime drink!
