5.0 out of 5 stars Why did I buy this?, January 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
First of all, I already own the Venstar color touch screen thermostat that works perfectly fine. But, wait, I upgraded my smoke and CO detectors to the Nest Protect units...so to really make it work in unison, this t-stat would be perfect. So, I coughed up the dough and got this circular ring of temp control to see what it's all about.

Well, to my surprise, it's so simple that it's funny. What's cooler (or hotter, pun intended) is that I can adjust and monitor from an app or a web browser. As I sit her and type this, I remember: oh man, I need to set that thing to away and in one click....bam! all done.

It's only the first day, so we'll see what happens.

Install was a breeze, but for some reason, it took a while for it to recharge it's internal batteries. After a couple of hours I was able to get into the settings and then add to my Nest account.

It's nice and sleek looking. It's in a high traffic area, so I may lock it down to prevent someone from accidentally hitting the knob and changing the settings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peace of Mind, January 3, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Why would one get excited about a freakin' smoke and CO detector? Well, if it will notify you remotely if there's a problem or emergency, and maybe that it also doubles as a motion sensing night light. Yeah, these are expensive, but I sleep better at night when I'm at home or away. I picked up six of these and then got the Nest Thermostat too. I'm a happy husband and daddy now as I feel that I've done some good to keep my family safe.

** UPDATE 1/7/2014 **
I was so impressed by these devices that I decided to replace all my smoke/co alarms. The motion sensing path light (aka nightlight) is really, really cool. HOWEVER, one of the 120v wired ones arrived with dead batteries. Thanks to amazon.com's awesome returns, they are sending me a new one to replace it. NOTE that there is nothing wrong with the Nest Protect itself (as far as I know) but getting a new one is almost always a good thing.

Ordered it here because they were out at Petco. To my surprise there were two bulbs inside!!! SCORE!

Petco is now way too expensive IMHO

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this, you will NOT be dissapointed., December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Let's see...we dropped a 13 pound turkey in there with two gallons of oil and 56 minutes later (plus 10 minutes of letting it sit) and we were enjoying some of the best fried turkey ever. You will not be disappointed.

Please note that I ended up using this outside as it took up so much space on our small counter top, but the results were the same even as the weather dropped to 25 degrees.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great product, we just didn't like the taste., December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The wifey and I saw this on the Steve Harvey show and bought it. Just note that it comes with everything you need: injector, flavor and rub. The only problem is that we didn't care too much for the flavor of the creole.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't let the low price scare you, this projector rocks!!!, December 10, 2013

It's a short throw and such a great price. I now own three of these for my productions and they have not let me down. Projecting to a 9'x12' screen from just a few feet away is simply amazing.

4.0 out of 5 stars 2013 Avalon LTD perfect fit, but thin material., December 10, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have a 2013 Avalon LTD and these mats fit perfectly. I only gave it 4 stars because the rear mats are significantly thinner than the ones I had in my 2007 Avalon LTD. Did they run out of rubber?? Hmmmmmmm.

Well, it beats paying the horrendous price from the dealership.

So you spend close to $2,000 for this awesome mixer. Why not spend another $70 bucks or so to protect it?

It's a secure fit and really strong plastic. This is great buy and with Prime two-day shipping it's even better.

5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING lows and light weight, July 9, 2013
I've been using a pair of these for the past year and they are phenomenal. They get much lower than the KW181 subs from QSC. If you're looking to tighten up the bass, use the DBX DriveRack PX Powered Speaker Optimizer.

They do get hot, so be careful and watch that limiter. I ran them in direct sunlight for an outdoor event for three hours with no issues.

These are the same drivers used in their array series speakers, they are just not flyable.

Weight? yup, I can carry one on each hand and move them around. Just Awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars So good that it was stolen...PLEASE READ, April 4, 2013

The smart converter helps it charge faster...really?

Well, my wife plugged up her blackberry 9930 to it and said, "Wow, it's charging faster than the one in my car!"

Funny part of the story is that I get in my car the next morning and my charger has been taken (by my wife). Now I need to buy another one for me.

True story, I hope you enjoyed it.
