This review is from: Rosewill RHCH-15001 1500-Watt Infrared Cabinet Large Room Heater with Remote Control
Pros: Able to heat a large portion of my house
Easy to use
Appears to be solidly built
Optional shut-off timer
Highly visible thermostat temp
Cons: Unnecessarily loud confirmation "beep" for EVERY change (temp, mode, power on/off) when using either the panel on the heater or the remote. Should have an option to silence, but doesn't. Even each degree change requires a beep; I could see this being a problem for a house with light sleepers or in a situation where the settings would be changed frequently. Other than the beeps, the unit is relatively quiet.
Other Thoughts: Within the first 12 hours, the fan began making some noise like a bearing going out or the fan became slightly off-balance; this noise was not present when it was initially powered on. The noise wasn't very loud - if it were normal to its operation, I would not be returning this for a replacement. I shall see how the replacement holds up.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Targus Black.Gray Drifter II 17” Laptop Backpack TSB239US
Pros: After owning the Drifter II for a year with almost daily use (only about the last half of which actually carrying a laptop) and wearing it on a long motorcycle trip, the bag has held up pretty well. I carry it mostly over one should, and that shoulder strap shows the most wear and is starting to fray at the seam, but I should get at least another year of the same amount of use. I've yet to have any issues with any zippers.
Holds an HP 17.3" laptop easily - could probably hold a slightly larger laptop.
I'm a big guy and have no issues using both shoulder straps while wearing a heavy coat in the winter.
If you like zippers and/or you like compartments within compartments - this is the bag for you. There's a couple of handy compartments that will work well for CCDW, too.
Cons: I would have given a fifth star if the 1 shoulder strap hadn't started fraying.
Other Thoughts: Wish list of improvements:
-An option to buckle the shoulder straps to each other across your chest would help, especially when riding a bike; I've yet to find a use for the D-rings on the shoulder straps.
-The bottom and back could have been better designed to help the bag stand up on its own.
-Could be a bit more padding for the pocket meant for a laptop.
This review is from: Panasonic Wet/Dry Vacuum Nose & Ear Hair Trimmer ER430K
Pros: ...nor was it the intention when I purchased it, but this thing trimmed my mustache like a champ! And not one bit of hair escaped the vacuum trap. I have a full beard and it's fairly course - not one hesitation or snagged hair.
Cons: It's also great at sniping those particularly unwanted color of hair that seem to grow faster than all the rest and keeps infecting it's neighbors...But that's my con, not the trimmer's
Other Thoughts: Caught a sale and a promo for 3x5 buxREAD FULL REVIEW
