5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkably good light, June 1, 2015
Length:: 5:13 Mins

It used to be imported lights had all kinds of lumens but lacked in quality and design. That's not so true anymore and least of all with this light.

Sure, it doesn't have a tail cap actuator which makes it less that desirable for some situations. Other than that, this is a solidly built light that puts out a lot of even, pure white... light.

There are still times I'll have my Sure-Fire 6Z (with the LED upgrade, I'm not *that* rooted in the past). However, when I just want to grab a compact and versatile light for seeing stuff from now it it may very well be this one.

The light was provided without further obligation so I could give you this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars An effective all-in-one oral hygiene solution. (And a suggestion for a solution to further improve your oral hygiene.), June 1, 2015
I've been using the original Waterpik for some time and this unit works differently. The Waterpik sends a steady, pulsating stream. This one sends discrete bursts. For me, this is more effective.

In addition I get the power flosser and toothbrush in one unit.

Finally, it is compact enough to take on trips. I can leave the water tank at home if I like and still have the power flosser and brush.

There is one thing that I have been doing with my old waterpik that works fine with this one too. I toss a cap full of antiseptic mouthwash into the water tank along with the water. That way I get my mouth extra clean and keep the thing free of germs all at the same time.


Brooklyn Beans Medium Roast Variety Pack Single-Cup Coffee for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, 40 Count
Brooklyn Beans Medium Roast Variety Pack Single-Cup Coffee for Keurig K-Cup Brewers, 40 Count
Price: $23.98

5.0 out of 5 stars Three tasty coffees and one you can make tasty., June 1, 2015
For K-cups, heck for coffee in general, this is a very nice assortment. I usually prefer dark roast and all four verities still provided rich and robust flavor.

The assortment I am reviewing contained 10 each of:

- Brooklyn Bridge Blend
- Corner Donut Shop
- Boardwalk Blend
- Colombian

They worked just fine in our Keurig B 3000 SE Coffee Commercial Single Cup Office Brewing System and produced some of the best coffee I've tasted from it.

Of the four styles, the Columbian came closest to "just coffee" and would benefit most from adding cream and sugar. The other varieties stood well on their own. They each had hints of mocha, chocolate, and an interesting creaminess.

The coffee was provided without further obligation so I could give you this review.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last duct tape you'll see me use, June 1, 2015
What I really like is being able to quickly and easily tear pieces off the roll, even when I'm wearing gloves. However, once wrapped around something it's almost impossible to pull it apart, no matter how much someone struggles with it. Trust me, I've seen them try.

We know there are all sorts of uses for duct tape, tying things up, keeping things closed, covered, or shut, and wrapping up the plastic sheeting. I don't want to sound emotional about it. In fact, Dr. Jacobson told me I can't get emotional about anything. Well, that's what he used to say before he upset me.

However, sometimes a life can hang in the balance and I don't want that balance to be disturbed by a tool that isn't sharp or tape that is unreliable. That is why I only use 3M Utility Duct Tape and you should too.

OK, I just heard the front door open and it's time for me to go to work.


Supertech Premium Gold Plated Toslink Digital Optical Fiber Audio Cable With Metal Housing and Soft Black Jacket (6 Feet Silver)
Supertech Premium Gold Plated Toslink Digital Optical Fiber Audio Cable With Metal Housing and Soft Black Jacket (6 Feet Silver)
Offered by supertech usa inc
Price: $28.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Appears more durable than most and works fine, May 31, 2015
The cable connectors ARE metal and somewhat beefier than other optical cables I've used. The cable is also somewhat thicker. Given this is an optical connection I'm not sure what value the gold plating provides.

All that aside, it works fine for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpectedly amazing, May 31, 2015
This is the first over-the-shoulder headset that competes with LG over-the-shoulder headsets (for example the LG Electronics Tone Pro Bluetooth Stereo Headset).

The sound is rich and clear. In particular, the bass response is amazing. The controls are easy to identify by touch. The headphone provides easy to understand voice prompts.

Headphone fit is good and not nearly as much an issue as with other headphone styles because the earbuds have almost no weight. I have trouble getting off-the-rack earbuds to fit and had no problem with this set.

That's a good thing because (and also probably why) the manufacturer decided to NOT include different sizes of ear tips. The benefit is a slightly reduced cost. It may be a problem if the ones that are included don't fit well or if you somehow lose one. The good news is the Comply S-200 Active Earphone Tips fit very well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use and works surprisingly well and lots better than similar pen cam's I've owned, May 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Length:: 5:34 Mins

The accompanying video provides a close look at the features, instructions on how to use it (because what come with the pen is next to useless), and shows examples of the videos it makes. The example videos are at 5:00 if you want to skip to that part.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice paddles and ORANGE balls., May 30, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I ordered this set a few days ago the listing showed three white (old school) balls. Now the listing shows them as yellow. They are actually ORANGE, just like you want.

The paddles are reasonably "grippy" and certainly a cut above the typical set the is "included" with your table.

The only issue is there is a strong rubber cement-like smell and it goes away in a few days.
