5.0 out of 5 stars Works Great and Well-Thought Out Design, February 28, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
For years I used one of the big box suction cups with a pull string. It worked okay but the suction cup had a tendency to warp over time and need to be replaced. This changer is made of a thicker rubber and I expect it to last longer. It also has a very smart design where no string is required, simply pulling down released the suction. Before changing a bulb high up, you should practice to make sure you know how much pressure is required and get a feel for when suction is obtained. For my two 20 foot high bulbs, it worked great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clean, Bright Light, February 20, 2014

Used for an Ikea floor reading lamp for my daughter. This light had higher output and a warmer hue than the IKEA LED bulbs, for the same price. It was packaged well and works great so far.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick, fast charger, September 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really like this charger because when I'm on the go, I don't have 3-4 hours to charge my phone. This 2 amp charger quickly juices up my devices. It also looks good, barely protruding out from the plug. I do wish they made a version with a USB cord included (I guess two versions, one for micro usb devices and one for Apple). Because while the charger itself is sleekly designed, it's hard to find a similar USB cord, particularly a coiled one that's low profile. All in all though, the best car charger I have used to date.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like it a lot but first shipment had small defect, September 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I wanted a case for my S4 that complimented rather than took away from it. Hard to do and stay slim and I never like the jelly/tpu type cases. This one looks sleek in and of its own right. It's very slim, but feels sturdy and I believe it would protect both the body and screen in the event of a drop. I did have a minor gripe with my first case, as the front didn't quite want to cover the chrome ring surrounding the glass. But they sent a replacement unit right away and it worked perfectly well. Taking on/off is easy too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Weapon in the Man vs. Mosquito War, August 17, 2013
Living in Texas where the mosquitoes loom large during the warmer months (okay, pretty much all year), we deal with the little critters and many others. When they inevitably get into the house with the dog or a family member going through the door, we have to have a way to kill them quickly. This zapper does the job well and with good coordination kills the mosquito in one zap and swing. It also works for flies, gnats, and the like, but you have to be fast as those insects move quicker. It's not a single solution for mosquitoes but is very effective for what it is intended for, reasonably priced, and well built.

4.0 out of 5 stars Use for Asus Nexus 7, August 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
One problem with buying non-Apple products is the accessories always take a few weeks to hit the market en mass. So while I'm waiting for my 2013 Nexus 7 fitted cover to arrive, I needed something to protect it while traveling. I took a chance on this inexpensive neoprene cover intended for the Kindles. It fits the Nexus 7 fine, if a bit snug. So I wouldn't recommend it for everyday use, popping in and out several times a day in my case. But when it's time to move/travel, it's a good and cheap option.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great price for quality blades, July 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this two pack for less than I would have paid for one Diablo or similar blade at the big box stores. Used both for a solid bamboo flooring job. It was my first time doing flooring or using a table saw, so I know it wasn't my technique. But in ripping floorboards I had absolutely no splintering, just nice smooth cuts. I can't speak to longevity but compressed bamboo is hard stuff and I didn't see any deterioration in performance over 300 SF.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth The Upgrade From Original Nexus 7, July 27, 2013
I had the original Nexus 7 prior to this updated model. I love the 7" size for many reasons but bottom line is it's perfect for portable consumption. The downsides to the original were standby battery life, washed out colors (although very crisp resolution), and slow charging.

I received my tablet today and have been playing with it all day. First impressions:

- Amazing Screen!! It's literally like eye candy from the high resolution wall papers, to icons, to video. Watch something beautifully shot like Planet Earth, and be prepared to be in awe. Colors are rich and vibrant, blacks are black like they should be.

- Faster so far. Even with multiple updates running in the background, it ran 1080p video flawlessly and easily rotated from portrait to landscape and back. Boot time seems faster too.

- WiFi and Downloads at blistering speeds; Updates to apps over same N Router I had before are literally 5X faster between the faster download time and faster processor during installation.

- Stereo, loud speakers. The original Nexus 7 had decent audio but it didn't have enough power and was mono. Now the amp has been upped and it's pumping two very good sounding speakers out of such a thin package.

- Thinner and lighter. Reading the specs, I kind of laughed when early reviewers gave the stats. But upon holding it, I can really tell the difference and it feels perfectly balanced. Build quality is on par with prior model, which in my opinion was very good.

- Battery Life - It's early, but so far after two system updates, something like 40 apps downloaded and installed, one hour of HD video watched, and four hours of playing around with the screen on, it still has 68% battery left. Overnight in standby, the charge only went down by 1%, so it's pretty clear battery life has improved substantially. I think the more efficient processor coupled with faster processing times (less CPU cycles) has helped a lot.

- Android 4.3. The biggest feature for me is the restricted account mode. For my young children, I can give them a sub-account to mine, with only limited app access. It's perfect since I've already paid for apps on my Android phone for their use and don't want to repurchase for a 2nd account. Also, since they are young, I feel more comfortable with them only having access to approved apps. You can even turn off the browser and Google search so they don't get into trouble.

I'll do a second update on charge time as well other findings over the coming days. Also, while I would not trash my old one and drop $229 on this one, considering you can sell your original on Ebay or elsewhere for probably 70% of what you paid, in my opinion it is definitely worth the upgrade. You will not be disappointed.
