2.0 out of 5 stars Not okay for smaller animals, leaks, March 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros: Compared to competitors, the materials are of higher quality, and there are more adjustments for sensitivity and length of spray. HOWEVER-- being in the "materials engineering" area-- the more expensive metal materials are in fact their weakness-- the metal doesn't allow for as water tight of a seal to the house and other parts, causing a lot of water dripping/leaking while turned on. The strength and weight of the metal also causes the couplings to weaken over time.

Cons:
1) As I said, the materials used cause the couplings to weaken over time-- I'm taking a matter of 3 days after use-- and leak a great deal of water (when the water is turned on, and the Enforces is "waiting"). I live in a very high water cost area, so can't waste this amount of water. I'm talking probably it leaks 2-3 gallons of water an hour easily. First day I used it there was a trickle leak (tried many things to stop it, didn't help) and over 3 days it turned into a constant leak.

2) As other reviewers mentioned, the way the movement sensor is made, it doesn't catch small animals, like cats (which is what I was aiming to get rid of in our yard). You can aim it towards the ground, but then it reduces the sensors arch and the small animals can walk around it without triggering it on. Seems it would work just fine for bigger dogs, deer, humans (!) etc.

Overall, this works for larger animals, but not smaller ones. It absolutely leaks, and the leak worsens over time-- so if your water is expensive it is cost prohibitive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality great price, February 13, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really quality good looking boots for a great price. I have the white and the color is bright with good detailing. The material is not stiff but is flexible- yet still doesn't "slump" down. They are comfortable to wear the foot area is forgiving around the toes. The sole isn't soft like a sneaker but you can walk around all night in them.

Only small negative is the black sole easily scuffs the white boot when one boot runs the other. But if you rub the mark with your fingers it easily comes off .

5.0 out of 5 stars It feel like literally just a thick normal cotton bedsheet, February 1, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When we bought our memory foam mattress-- the sales person of course pushed their $250 mattress cover to prevent stains (which voids the warranty). No way was I paying that much.

Our previous traditional mattress had a mattress protector on it (and it was an expensive one!) and it felt plastic-y to lie on and made you sweaty when you slept on it.

This mattress cover is soft, doesn't feel plastic-y and allows your body to breathe (no sweat!). It feel like literally just a thick normal cotton bedsheet.

This mattress cover in fact felt so non-platicky that I worried if it would actually prevent water absorbing onto our mattress from, a toddler who peed in our bed.

Well got to test that theory pretty quickly. The toddler pee had been soaking on our bed for about an hour until I noticed it. Took off the sheets, this mattress protector-- and felt the mattress. Bone dry. Perfect.

I washed the mattress protector in the washing machine than dried it in the drier. And it still was soft an undamaged and good as new.

Overall, a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Microfiber is the way to go., January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Since I discovered microfiber sheets I never went back. They are soft like jersey sheets, but don't pile over time and don't really hold wrinkles.

These sheets have pretty deep pockets so it fits our memory foam mattress wonderfully. If you have one of those really thick pillowtop mattresses, the pockets might not fit. If you have a very traditional mattress that is lower profile-- the pockets might be too big.

The packaging for this sheet set was beautiful-- so it would make a great gift (and look like you spent twice as much money as you actually did)

5.0 out of 5 stars Some unique features compared to the competition., January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love these. They fit easily in my purse and are easy to charge on the run. Gives about 1.25x power to my iPhone 5s.

I suggest buying a "stubby" phone charger (3 inches long) to keep with it in your pocket or purse.

Love that it doesn't have the useless flashlight feature like other compact chargers-- on other chargers the flashlight can accidentally get turned on and drain your battery.

There is an easy to read three-light switch so you know if it is fully charged, medium, or low power left. Again unique to only this compact charger.

This charger is longer but not as wide as other chargers.

Also the colors are really nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids LOVE playing it and it doesn't take up much space, January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really high quality for the price. Kids LOVE playing it and it doesn't take up much space.

Pros:
Compact size, you can put it anywhere-- kitchen table, your desk, the floor.
Pretty easy to put together. Much easier than Ikea :-)
VERY durable. My 3 year old has walked on the bars, dragged it around the house by a handle, and tripped and fell onto it at least 20 times. And it holds up no issue.
Slides easily under a bed or into a drawer for storage.

Cons:
Not really a con, but obviously there is one set less "bar" of players per side. This is of course necessary to make it the compact size it is, and of course no one who plays it cares.
The only weak parts of the game are the score keeper (the slide arrow that points to the score is hard to move) and the goal (the screws weren't perfectly aligned to install it and it is a awkward shape). But neither affect the function or enjoyment at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome photographer., January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This photographer will change your life. He is also an incredible writer and the definition of "unbiased."

My only comment beyond "just buy it" is to NOT buy the Kindle version. That would be like buying the poster of a beautiful painting instead of the painting itself. Way too much is lost in the Kindle version.

I probably haven't bought an actual real paper BOOK in 10 years. This one you need the paper version. Hands down.

Really good size for both kids and adults who want a compact keyboard. Biggest complaint by far is there is not a record function. So read carefully the details before buying. Otherwise it works great at a great price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for the price. Shape is different., January 31, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really great affordable kettlebell.

Things to note:
1) These kettlebells are flat on the sides-- they aren't completely round balls like you might see at the gym. The GOOD of this is they take up less space and are easier to store in your home. The design I've found has zero impact on the balance or fell of the kettlebells.

2) Again compared to the very expensive ones you see at your gym-- the finish on these is not perfectly smooth and polished. The finish on the bell and the handles is a bit bumpy (yet smooth so it doesn't hurt at all)-- which in my experience actually is better because if offers a better grip.

3) Other review complained of a lop-sided kettlebell and an unacceptable seam that can injure hands. I didn't find these issues with my kettlebell. So I'm assuming that was a quality control issue that hopefully was resolved.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
SAFE FOR YOUNG KIDS!

I always had the traditional heavy weighted stocking holders-- and was very hesitant to use them with my young kids, who would pull at the stockings and could easily have had a 10 pound block of metal fall onto their head.

These are a GREAT alternative to the traditional weighted stocking holders. They are very lightweight, so zero risk of injury if they fall off the mantle. They're more secure to the mantle than the weighted holders-- they held up NO problem with fully stuffed stockings. And the candy cane design is a beautiful decoration in of itself.

Highly recommend.
