This review is from: iRobot Roomba 880 Vacuum Cleaning Robot
Pros: This thing is pretty awesome. The kids love it, it gets the corners much better than I can, and can get under things like beds and couches.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it. As long as it lasts, I'll be happy with it.
Other Thoughts: It's kinda like getting your first dish washing machine. Its amazing that everything is getting clean and you are doing less! Free up that time to do something else.
Its also pretty amusing to watch it clean. My cat tries to ignore it by not looking at it, but than it just runs into her (gently), so that's always fun.
This review is from: Breville the Juice Fountain Plus Juicer JE98XL
Pros: Nice juicer so far. Its also a juicer of choice for Joe Cross who did the "Fat, Sick and nearly dead" documentary. I was borrowing a Juice man before this one, and it had some annoying aspects that this one seems to have solved. Such as the strainer basket thing that actually juices the stuff is attached a lot better and more securely, so it doesn't vibrate as much when you put a lot of leafy greens in. It also has less sharp corners you have to clean.
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: Although hard to start, if you can juice for 10 days or more straight (only juice), you feel REALLY good by the 5th day (but really want to chew something). Just be sure to check out the documentary "Fat sick and nearly dead" or at least check out his website (look up Joe Cross reboot). You'll find some decent recipes there.
I tried experimenting with fruits and veggies... and some went HORRIBLY wrong! As a general rule, don't mix honey due with other things and be careful when and where you add peppers (green seem to be better then the others).
As far as a juicer goes, this one is hard to go wrong with.
Pros: Power loss protection, good price per size for the time ($270), seems to be a popular choice for a reliable SSD.
Cons: None yet. From the reviews I looked at, this is not the fastest SSD out there, but its still plenty fast! You won't regret getting this one over a faster model, as the differences in real world use will be next to none.
Other Thoughts: I have so far just copied Windows 8.1 from my previous SSD to this one, then resized the partitions to occupy the larger space and installed Ubuntu 14.04 in a dual boot fashion. Been using it on and off for the past week, and its decent for speed and everything seems to just work. I got this one due to the cheaper cost for its size as well as the power failure protection.
This brand also seems to have a lot of decent reviews out there.
Unless I edit this review later, assume its been good! :)
