1.0 out of 5 stars Please do NOT buy this piece of garbage. *DANGEROUS*, October 27, 2013
I rarely write reviews, ever, but - this product is awful.

Seemed like an excellent idea - very convenient.

Started leaking immediately after installing.

After I took it off, and barely preventing a large oil spill, I made some interesting observations.

The threads had completely fallen apart. The metal that comprises the threaded bolt had separated, not only creating the leak, but potentially damaging the internal threads of the oil pan upon removal. Have picture if interested:

For the record, I barely tightened the bolt more than 'hand tight'. No air ratchet here~

Wish I had first seen this - and all the similar reviews here at Amazon, but perhaps my review combined with others will save someone else from making the same mistake.

IMO, it is unethical to sell such a defective, inferior, poorly engineered, hazard of a product.

I'm just glad I didn't find out how poor this is by losing all the engine oil while driving down the express way.
Guess Dorman and I prevented having a lawsuit there, but then again, it might be hard to file a lawsuit if your engine seizes up and you crash at 70+ MPH.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2nd Unit Failing, August 18, 2013
Bought two of these on sale last Fall.
Live with good central air - and good air filtration as it is.

The first unit was in the basement - and has completely failed. No lights.
Perhaps I can check to see if there's a fuse inside, but it's apparent that there has been a power failure.

The second has been used in a bedroom, starting to fail, motors make noise - like the first, takes a while to get up to speed.

The filtration itself seems okay. I've been able to clean out the foam insert frequently - and the paper filter has been collecting somewhat sufficiently, yet still kept clean and clear of dust/debris.

It seems, perhaps, that this particular revision of the 16200 includes a motor that doesn't like to be run continuously.
Although odd as it looks to be a squirrel-cage type blower.
Not sure if I'm still under warranty. Even if it's eligible, it seems like quite a hassle to send something like this back.

Starting to wonder if it was one too many engineering-cost-savings on the parts.
I definitely don't see how this device would last years like others have mentioned.
Though it does seem to reflect the price point, for this day and age anyway...

Has held up since day one. Would buy again. Might be nice to try a 'bumber' version of this - where the back is more exposed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Was worth it, November 29, 2012
This guy shakes the house.

Makes you feel movies, quite a bit more than your stock 8" - 10" sub(s.)
Still seems to have a smooth sound when used with music, for a relatively inexpensive sub that is.

I don't have any complaints, the neighbors might, but they're a ways away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for our smaller speakers, November 29, 2012

They look fine - work well.

Glad we didn't spend more money on something that would have done the same thing.

Currently using 2 pairs for our 7.2 speaker setup.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a cool gadget, November 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Did not prove to be nearly as useful as the Moac implementation we tried afterwards.

Good for a laptop on the move, but didn't compare to putting in a hardwired solution.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, November 29, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This has proven to be a great investment. Perhaps I've become some what of a coffee snob, but so is life.

Tastes better than the cheap $30 ones I'd buy at the big box stores.

Keeps coffee warm for hours.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Delivers our broadband perfectly from well over 100yds away.

Pretty crazy that Comcast actually installed the outdoor line free of charge for us - to connect buildings that is.

This works so much better than the high powered repeating routers and high powered transceivers I used.

Hopefully we continue to see more products like this.

Still broke after some time, better than others. Wish USB Implementers Forum could enforce a better standard of securing USB connectors. Perhaps it's about time to use a magnet and/or induction?
