In My Own Words:
Since retiring I have started reviewing in earnest once more. After I shake myself awake every morning I write two or three reviews in order to maintain a routine and to keep my mind sharp.

If you know me please do the other reviewers here a favor and refrain from voting for my reviews. Instead, read what the other reviewers have to say and honor them with a helpful vote if you find that they h… Read more

NOTE: I rarely review books and those I do MUST be hard copy or in PDF format. I will NOT review anything in Kindle format, and WILL NOT accept gift cards or any other form of payment. This is a hobby and not a job.

Music: Swing and jazz, mainly fro… Read more

Alfa AWUS036NHV 802.11n High Power 1500mW WIRELESS&hellip by Alfa
I received this as a review sample and after I got it running it dramatically improved WiFi reception on my laptop. Before proceeding I want to explain why I awarded this four stars instead of five.

The CD ROM that ships with this adapter has an invisible file system so even after the autorun launches the install menu the documentation that is supposed to be in the CD ROM is not accessible. The quick start guide that ships with the adapter is pretty good for getting you up and running, but even it advises you to read the documentation (that you cannot access).

Second, the Windows XP driver on the CD ROM hung during install, but I was able to get a functioning copy by… Read more

The main reason why I said this could quickly pay for itself is I wear wool blazers and suits often, and the ironing brush attachment (with the brush detached) is a perfect way to keep dry cleaning prices down. For example, it cost me about eight dollars to have a suit dry cleaned, which I normally do after wearing them three times. This steamer allows me to extend that to five wears. Doing the math quickly shows that in less than two months that feature alone has paid for this steamer.

Another reason why I love this is I can quickly lift spots on my carpet using the wound brush attachment. Sometimes I have to first treat the area with a carpet stain remover, which has never… Read more
Ivation Renewable/Rechargeable Wireless Mini Dehum&hellip by Ivation
I received my unit as a review sample. I have tested this to ensure that it complies with the product description with one exception: the time it takes to require a recharge. That could take up to two months per the product description and I have not had it long enough to validate that claim.

What I love is this only requires electricity when you are recharging the unit after the crystals turn pink. It charges using 110 voltage, so there are no batteries to replace (or explode from heat), and the unit runs totally quiet.

Note that this is designed for 500 cubic foot or less spaces, so if you wanted to place them in an attic you would need to space them about one… Read more
