Seed Grass 7Lb Bg 2800Sq-Ft JONATHAN GREEN TURF Grass Seed 10322 079545103224
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great Green Growing Grass 07/13/2014

This review is from: Seed Grass 7Lb Bg 2800Sq-Ft JONATHAN GREEN TURF Grass Seed 10322 079545103224

Pros: Easy to plant

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have bought more pounds of grass then I can count. I have bought premium, budget, patch, sun , shade and every type I have not mentioned. I had a large area to plant this year and I didn't want budget.

The grass broke ground in less then a week. What must be done to new planted seed is to provide constant moisture and make sure the seed is not sitting on top the dirt or buried too deep. I watered the area two to four times a day prior to germination. After germination I kept up that practice. You can plant and grow grass anytime spring, summer of fall. If planting in summer just water it. I have seeded in early December in a snow storm and that grass did great the following spring. I know what I am doing.

It's been a month since the grass came up and it is the deepest green I have seen in grass. No weeds came up either. If this product didn't work for you it's not the seeds fault. Great stuff. Buy it you won't be sorry

Far Cry 3 Deluxe Edition [Online Game Code]

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Fun and Challenging 07/06/2014

This review is from: Far Cry 3 Deluxe Edition [Online Game Code]

Pros: Looks good
Plays quite well on my i5 with 16 gb RAM and AMD 6870
Not to hard
Editor is fun and easy
UPlay ain't so bad for me so far

Cons: Like FC 2 once you figure out and it didn't take long you learn how the bad guys are going to react and are avoidable

Too may power ups to "craft" gets confusing

Other Thoughts: For $10 this was a good purchase. Not being in a rush to do or buy anything I am having fun with this highly regarded game for a pittance of the opening day price. Also by waiting most bugs are quashed

Friedrich CP08G10A 7,800 BTU - ENERGY STAR - 115 volt - 11.2 EER Chill Series Room Air Conditioner
  • eggxpert iconEggXpert
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very Attractive Unit Installed
Feature Laden
Secure Install
Long Cord
Fan Speed 1 Offers Very Quiet Operation, Sleeping Quiet
Option to oscillate an inner louver
Has Vent
Remote Control, Which Doubles as a Battery Tester !!
Has Drain option, Good idea for high humidity areas
Can be mounted through the wall or in window. Window may be of small size too. Ours are very small
Warranty Seems Reasonable. 1st Year complete. 2nd thru 5th year Sealed Refridgerator
System only, labor allowance and parts
So you are going to buy an AC online? The box the FRIEDRICH Chill CP08
came in states something like: THIS IS HEAVY and BULKY. The units packing was good. The unit was not damaged in shipment at all.

Cons: Thin Curtains

Plastic bottom guides for curtain were very difficult to snap in place, very difficult !

Sub-Par Directions

eg., Instead of Hardware Location it's Lardware Location. Just a typo but I laughed.
Poor Drawings Designating Where Things Go and what orientation of object is proper.
Why Would I Need a Hammer for Install ?

Lardware, er... I mean Hardware supplied with unit is of Low Quality Foam is really, really cheap. Go to your Home Supply Store and buy some good stuff. Holes for screws need to be started first before final install.
Screws are cheap soft metal but serviceable

Why MUST the Remote BEEP ? WHY? If your wife is sleeping and you change the temp...BEEP ! DUMB !!!!!
How bout a NO BEEPING Option ????

Directions state that the louvers turn right/left and up/down. There is no right/left but the oscillator supplies that.

I am taking an egg off for the cons. To me they are significant enough to warrant it.

Other Thoughts: I am an expert on wall AC units having owned many. In my book AC's have very few requirements.

1) When the compressor comes on or turns off I don't want a big WHUUMPFFF. That maybe OK in a living
area but NOT in a sleeping area. The FRIEDRICH Chill CP08 has at this time the quietest compressor I have heard in a small unit. I am very happy.

2) The biggest concern in my area is lower temps but high humidity. Some AC's fail in those areas. So far
the FRIEDRICH Chill CP08 has done OK, not great but acceptable.

3) The unit is quite heavy for 7800 BTU's I associate mass with quality.

4) I have an app that measures dB. Right next to the unit it's about 60dB. Where we sleep in the room it's about 50dB.
According to the app's chart 50 dB is "Quiet Office, Quiet Street"

5) First the cabinet is placed in the window then the unit slides in. I was surprised that a smaller AC
would go this route but it did make one aspect of install easier. I didn't need to worry much about the unit
dropping out the window before I had it secured.

6) I Felt the airflow across the room

7) Fan Speeds 2 and 3 are loud enough to help drown out street noise.

In the few short weeks I have had the unit there have been a few nights we really needed AC. The weather was hot, humid
and our upstairs is not well insulated so it gets really uncomfortable up their. The FRIEDRICH Chill CP08 worked wonderfully. We had restful sleep.

I recommend the FRIEDRICH Chill CP08 without reservation. Don't save yourself a few bucks...get the FRIEDRICH Chill CP08.
