5.0 out of 5 stars Best Drill I've Ever Had, June 26 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This drill is great. It's light, has great power, the variable speed trigger control allows you to easily control the speed of the chuck. It really is a great drill. I didn't think the light would be very useful but I've already been surprised that I ended up using it to provide light for some under counter and light switch work in my kitchen. It's flat base made for good stable light source when I was working. Normally I would have worn a headset light but light ended up being really useful. I'll admit my old cordless drill was really hold so that may be why I'm so amazed by this drill but I have to say I really am impressed. If you have an old cordless drill that needs replacing, I sincerely recommend this as a replacement. It's great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Electric Blower / Vacuum, June 11 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This electric blower / vacuum is a Consumer Reports Best Buy and I agree that it's much more powerful than my last electric blower. It's really very close to 5 stars (so it gets it) but I've found the handle isn't very ergonomic, making it awkward lugging around the bag when vacuuming. Other than that, I really like it and it's super great for blowing out eavestroughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Wrist Exerciser, May 27 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this wrist exerciser to strengthen my wrist for squash and I think it's working well. I checked a scientific publication (can't find the link now) that reported a 109% increase in endurance and 15% increase in strength after a month of use. I have been using it close to that long a few times a week and while I may not have seen a 109% increase in endurance yet, my backhand is quite a bit stronger and more reliable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Swim Suit with a Couple Caveats, May 12 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They're good shorts but I found they fit tight and a little low on my hips. At first they are tight around the thigh too but that loosens with use. Other than than those item's I've enjoyed practicing with them and I've found them to be a good value and a good product. So you will like them provided you get a good fit.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Really Good & It Works, April 4 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They should make a smaller version of this though as it is a bit big. But it's good and it works. No BS.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Heater, Feb. 21 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Bathroom Safe Heater Fan (Misc.)
This is a good heater. I like how it monitors the temperature and shuts off automatically too. I would give it 5 stars but I'll just note 2 small things that a potential purchaser should know:

1. Temperature is in Fahrenheit only. This isn't a big deal but it would be nice to pick Celcius if I wanted.
2. The minimum temperature for the autoshut off feature is 65F which is 18.33C. It would be nicer if it went to 60F I think.

For value buyers, I found this to be a better value than the Dyson options. This heater seemed just about as good but more economical.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm Impressed, Dec 2 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this when is was on sale a week or two ago and installed it yesterday and I have to say that I'm really impressed. It looks great, it's easy to install and operate and I feel it's already doing a good job of reliably keep the temperature steady in the house and is learning to cool off at night. I can post more info later on how it works over time but my early impression is very positive.

This keyboard is a solid replacement for those looking to replace their old laptop keyboard. The keys have a good solid feel about them.

I should also mention that the seller of this product, Micro Power Source (M.P.S.), was excellent to deal with too. They are helpful, trust worthy and reliable. A pleasure to do business with.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This watch has been a good, accurate watch since I bought it. It's simple, elegant looking and I like that it's solar and won't ever need a battery change. If you are looking for a nice, reliable watch you don't have to look any further.

4.0 out of 5 stars Matcha Tea - Good But Pricey, Nov. 21 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have enjoyed drinking Matcha tea lately. It is quite good and green tea fans will enjoy it. However, it is an expensive product so I would drink it sparingly or on special occasions. That's probably why it's marketed as a ceremonial tea in the first place. So, while I do recommend this tea remember that if you do purchase it, don't be overly surprised at how small 30g really is.
