5.0 out of 5 stars The best bicycle tail light I have ever owned, April 11, 2015

The best bicycle tail light I have ever owned. It's bright and well built. I ride with confidence knowing that cars can see me on the road.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stinks!, April 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This inner tube gives off a very putrid rubber smell. It is stinking up my work shop. The manufacturer really aught to let these off-gas in the factory, so the end user does not have to endure the odor.

This review is from: Omega Paw SB Scratch Box (Misc.)
This item did not come with the cardboard tray which is shown in the picture. This is just a refill if you already own the tray.

AODE® Digital Large LCD Indoor Hygrometer Thermometer Humidity Easy Read Display 130021
Offered by BlueCosto

3.0 out of 5 stars Pros and Cons, April 11, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Pros:
The display is easy to read.
The unit had a small stand so you can place it on a flat surface.

Cons:
Build quality is so-so. When I press the buttons, they sometimes get stuck in the housing and have to be popped out. You have to press the buttons gingerly.

There does not appear to be away to change the values which trigger the smile/frown face. The thermometer is pre-programmed to smile only when the temp is 64-77 F and the relative humidity is 40-65%. I live in a perpetually humid climate, so the thermometer is frowning at me all day every day. Since "comfort" is subjective, you aught to be able to change these values or do away with this feature all together.

There is a magnetic mount on the back, so theoretically you could mount this on a fridge. However the magnet is too small to hold the weight of the thermometer and it slides down. There is no other mounting option.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor UI and documentation, March 2, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well built camera. Excellent image quality for the money.

However, the camera is extremely difficult to setup, even for an advanced computer user. The user interface is terrible and written in broken English. Same for the user manual. If you buy a Foscam, you should dedicate a lot of time getting it working the way you want.

For example, I cannot find a way to have video recordings saved to both the SD card and FTP server. Playback from the SD card is also not working.

Another example of poor UI: I could not figure out why my day exterior images were so overexposed. Turns out, if you want to activate the ND filter for day exterior use, you click on the Mode dropdown menu and change the option from 60Hz to Outdoor Mode. Go figure.

Firmware updates are not easily available on the Foscam website. You have to give them your email address and have the download links emailed to you.

I was also disappointed to learn that this model does not support POE. For POE, you need the model number which ends in "E."

Eureka HF2 HEPA Vacuum Cleaner Filter By ENVIROCARE
Eureka HF2 HEPA Vacuum Cleaner Filter By ENVIROCARE
Offered by B & M Housewares
Price: $7.75
19 used & new from $5.30

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor fit, November 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This does not not appear to be a genuine Eureka replacement HEPA filter. The rubber gasket around the filter is much smaller, so a proper seal is not made. It leaks all around.

2.0 out of 5 stars Died in less than one month, plus other issues, February 18, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is difficult to aim the laser at the floor without the beam being blocked by the plastic opening of the toy. This seems like an obvious design flaw. Also, it would be nice if there were a few program options, for example a slow and fast setting. The speed of the laser is too fast for many cats, as it jumps from one corner of the room to the other, so the cat can never catch the laser.

The main reason for the poor review is that the laser beam stopped working after only a few weeks of use.


Dirt Devil Extreme Power Bagless Handheld Vacuum, M0914
Dirt Devil Extreme Power Bagless Handheld Vacuum, M0914

2.0 out of 5 stars This vacuum sucks -- Battery failed on two units, February 9, 2014
The battery on this vacuum stopped holding a charge after 6-12 months of light use. This vacuum does not have a user serviceable or replaceable battery. So when the battery fails -- and it will -- you have to junk the whole vacuum.

Dirt Devil was kind enough to replace my vacuum with a new one (I had to cut off my charger cord and ship it to them at my expense). The replacement vacuum also failed within 6-12 months of light use. So that's two units which I had to send to the e-waste recycler.

Until battery technology improves, I highly recommend you get a CORDED portable vacuum.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works great, December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Easy to program

Has a battery backup so you can program without it plugged in to the wall!

I love that it has a GROUNDED plug and receptacle.

I just wish the LCD screen would light up when I push the buttons. Sometimes it is difficult to see in the dark.

2.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to setup, December 15, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am an advanced computer user, yet this thing drives me nuts. It is difficult to setup, and impossible to setup without internet access. I have given up on it and am going back to good old fashioned card readers.
