I had three things when I was looking for a sunhat:
- an adjustable cord to keep the hat on in the wind
- a dark under brim so that light doesn't reflect into your eyes
- hold its shape, with the brim folding for travel but staying flat while you wear it
This hat has all three and then some: it also has air holes on the scalp area to keep you cooler.
This item is very convincing and fools people all the time. From the outside, it looks exactly like a TV at a fraction of the electricity.
Two main things to remember about the FakeTV:
1) We use it on a main floor at a window with cellular shades. This may seem like a no brainer, but dont use this if you have blackout shades or some other similarly heavy window covering. This will defeat the purpose :)
2) we use this on the "wait for nighttime" setting, so it needs to be blocked from other light in the room. It senses ambient light so if you keep an inside light on all the time, just keep something between that light and the FakeTV.
All in all, we're very happy with this item and will be ordering more to give as gifts.
I'm no electronics expert, but I know that when you charge a phone, especially a newer HTC phone like the Evo 4G, that it takes more power than a generic micro-USB charger can deliver.
These cables (I bought 2) charge my phone just as quickly as the OEM charger which came with my cell phone originally. Great for spares - just plug into my computer at work and then I never have to worry about the battery dying.
So as far as I can tell, this is actually an OEM HTC product.
This fleece was okay. I used it to make a Project Linus blanket (Google "cut and tie fleece blankets," very easy project.) The pattern and color is just as shown in the photo, and the texture is soft.
It's a little too thin for my taste. I prefer thicker fleece that doesn't stretch when you try to lay it out and measure a proper length.
I'd buy from Textile Creations again (on Amazon), though there are other Amazon sellers whose fleece is better quality (Quilting Treasures.)
I'm not affiliated with anyone. I just like explaining where I get the products on Amazon that I find to be the best quality.
This fleece was definitely worth the $9/yard price. I used it to make a scarf (cut into two pieces, then tie them together) and I get a TON of complements!
It's also good quality fabric. Thick, and doesn't "give" if you pull on it. Soft, too :o)
I'll definitely buy from Quilting Treasures again, and hope they get more cartoon patterns to choose from.
Standard fleece fabric is at lest 1/4 inch thick, and doesn't stretch much when you pull on it.
This fleece is thin, and I think a 5-year old could pull it and rip it apart. Very poor quality fabric. Not worth wasting money to save a dollar a yard. Next time I'll buy average price fleece.
Bought this on Amazon through the seller "Fabric.com" and I sent this back and got a refund. That's how disappointed I was...
The color is a nice orange, just as in the photo.
But the fleece is very thin and flimsy. I use these for Project Linus blankets and this fleece could be cut with a baby scissor. Fleece should be thicker than this stuff.
In the future I'll just go to the store. Not worth waiting 2 weeks to get things delivered which disappoint.
PS. I strongly recommend avoiding Fabric.com. Apparently this item was on backorder when I bought it on Amazon, but they never let me know. Not when I placed the order, not when the shipping alert email was sent, and not when the rest of my order arrived. In fact, this fleece was listed on my order sheet as being part of my delivered order! When I emailed to inquire, THAT'S when I found out that the item was on back order for another Three WEEKS. I needed the item for Project Linus, but when I asked for a refund and to cancel since the order wouldn't even ship for at least three weeks, they said I had to wait, get the item more than a month late, then go to the hassle of returning it.
The only reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1 is because the pattern is very cool looking.
But the fleece itself is very thin. You can't use it for blankets or anything without at least doubling it up, if not tripling it.
This fleece costs way too much per yard to be this thin and easily ripped.
If you're in the market for fleece, best to go somewhere in person where you can feel the fabric quality.
It can be very hard to figure out which electronics are really the "original manufacturer" and which ones are sad, cheap knockoffs. This is a real HTC product.
I've tried charging my HTC Evo 4g on older LG chargers and it doesn't work. The battery needs too much juice.
This charger is a real HTC charger, and works very well to charge my phone.
I'm on Long Island, NY and I just got my power turned back on tonight, **15 DAYS** after Frankenstorm Sandy and the subsequent Nor'easter.
I decided to purchase this lock as a replacement for a typical Grade 3 handleset for 3 reasons:
*1) This handleset makes it impossible to lock yourself out
*2) This handleset is battery operated, with a 'low battery' alarm
*3) Most importantly, they foretold us here on Long Island that Hurricane Sandy could knock us out of power for "7-10 days" (LOL see my note above?) and I was uncomfortable knowing that my alarm would be completely offline if that happened.
So this handleset was delivered a little late (thanks again, Hurricane Sandy!) but better late than never.
Wow, just wow!
The positives about this lock, so far, are:
* I'm not extremely handy, and it took me maybe 1/2 hour to take out my old handleset and install this one.
* The lock is VERY easy to program, and I saved money by not having to make copies of its key. I just give them (temporary or permanent) key codes.
* Very nice looking. I got this lock in brass, but I'm sure the other colors look nice too.
* In the dark, you can press the top (non-numbered) button to light up the keypad. And trust me, when your entire town is blacked out, ANY light is good light!
* I haven't had the lock long enough to tell, but they say the numbers will not wear off - meaning, a crook won't be able to guess your code by virtue of more-worn numbers.
* I also haven't had to experience this, but this lock has an alarm which goes off immediately (90 decibels!) if someone tries to knock in your door. Which, in case your power goes out (notice a theme? LOL) is a nice backup.
All in all, this lock is a little pricey compared to standard key-only locks, but it is SO worth it. You'll use twice a day on average, if not more, so the cost per-use is nothing.
Get this lock and you will not be sorry.
